Being ultra is not a sin: if you are in a football stadium or in a basketball hall and you don’t use violence. Being a fan, let alone, if you let off steam at the concert of your favorite singer before returning to normal.
But cheering on a far-right paramilitary organization denounced by Amnesty International for war crimes and human rights violations and officially declared terrorist by a state, is something that does not suit some politicians …
In particular, it does not suit former militants of the Youth Front which was born as a nursery of the Italian Social Movement but has been repeatedly labeled as neo-fascist, post-fascist, or in any case of the radical right; especially in the Years of Lead when the ideologies of some members turned into beatings, clashes, and murders.
This is why a long-time politician should not paint the ferocious extremist militiamen of the Azov Battalion (a member of the Ukrainian National Guard) as “heroes”, especially if he is considered the “guru” of the leader of a right-wing party such as Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) who, before and after the victorious elections of 25 September 2022, he took his heart and breath to disavow any nostalgia for Fascism and for the Duce Benito Mussolini.
