Kick Cossiga out of Parliament

"Non dovrebbero avere pietà e mandarli tutti all'ospedale"

"Maroni should do exactly what I did when I was minister for Internal Affairs. In the first place, he should just leave the high school students alone, because, just think what would happen if a youngster were to be killed or seriously injured... Leave them be (the university students - Ed). Pull the Police forces off the streets and out of the University, then send in some “agents provocateurs” to infiltrate the movement, people that are up for anything and leave the demonstrators for about ten days or so to ravage the shops, set fire to vehicles and lay waste to the cities. Then, having gained the support of the public, the sound of the ambulance sirens must drown out the sirens of the Police and Carabinieri vehicles. This is because the forces of law and order should not show any pity whatsoever and should send the lot of them to hospital. Don’t arrest them, after all, the judges would immediately allow them back onto the streets. Rather, you must beat them and also beat up those lecturers that are spurring the students on. The lecturers above all. I’m not saying the elderly ones, certainly, but the little girl teachers yes... this is the recipe for democracy: put out the flames before the fire takes over ".
Interview with Francesco Cossiga. Honorary President of the Italian Republic and senator for life.

Cossiga has finally confessed. This must be noted. At the end of the day, you have to admire his sincerity, because not even Totò Riina ever risked this much. All he did was say what the majority of Italians already knew: Italy is not a true democracy. Perhaps it never was. How many lies have they told us ever since the days of Piazza Fontana? Regarding the events surrounding the G8 meeting in Genoa? Who was it then that set the timer running for the Government sponsored massacres?
Cossiga has given us a masterful lesson in applying the strategy of tension. Now however, after those statements, he should be kicked out of the Senate and his nomination as honorary president of the Italian Republic should be withdrawn. I am keen to see whether or not any member of Parliament or Senator will bother to propose such action to Parliament.
If Cossiga retains his position, it will be shameful for the country and an insult to the professors and their students. He should not be beaten because he too is an elderly lecturer. He should simply be taken off to a private retirement home. I would suggest villa Wanda in Arezzo so that he doesn’t feel too much alone. There, together with Licio Gelli, he will be able to re-live the old days and talk about Gladio, Moro and the secret services...

Just a word of advice for the youngsters: take video cameras with you to the demonstrations and always film anyone you see committing any acts of violence. Then we will all be able to see precisely who they are, where they come from and whether they are "ruffians" as the psychodwarf likes to call them, or rather "agents provocateurs up for anything" as Cossiga suggests.

This blog will remain available to the students and the professors who want to send in their video clips of interviews, demonstrations and beatings (of which there will be many, I am sure). On the top toolbar, headed "La Scuola in diretta", the video clips will be scrolling continuously over the next few days. Post your video clips on YouTube and send a notification to the blog.
They will never give up, but neither will we.

Scumbags like Cossiga and the Andreotti's of this world (especially a certified mafioso like Andreotti)belong in a Naple's rubbish dump.
Whatever happened to the Mussolini treatment?
Upside-down I say!!!

A law in America has redefined protest as terrorism. Watch here.

Reminds me of a little speech by a little dwarf.

Regarding police on the streets intimidating protestors and the Police State in Italy (many parallels drawn to Mussolini dictatorship) and the US, I recommend this link to an interview with acclaimed American writer Naomi Wolf.

I have never been able to understand why Italy persists in having "Senators for Life". Are politicians immune from common old-age ailments like senile dementia? No. So why allow them to stick around and do more harm than good? Give them their "golden pensions" and tell them to piss off!

Is Cossiga hallucinating? Is he he in state of wild excitment? Is he running a fever and going insane? If so, then the man suffers from dementia. If not, he is an agititang golpista fueling an already loaded climate of crawling dictatorship. Exaggerating? I wish. But not at all. When you've got headlines like "Attenti Ragazzi",and articles suggesting students be kicked in the balls and a Prime Ministers threatning to come down on students with a iron fist one cannot discard the likelihood that someone is itching to install a police state. Let's all hope that the words of the senator came out the mouth of a demented and senile old man in need of medical attention.

Machiavellian tactics are still the creed by which many of those in positions of power conduct their affairs.
Here's one case that has come to light.
Imagine how many others there are.

This is appalling! He should stand down as hon. President and sent to America to live in a CIA retirement village, after all they have been exporting this type of politics for decades. Just look at South America in the last 30 years!

My son is doing his last year of high school and he wants to go to Rome and I sad no! I don't trust the police and I don't want another Genoa! Cossiga is an old sick senile bas..... like the guy that runs our country!!

Astonishing. Is this true from Cossiga? Bloody hell!
