Lazaret Italy

A season in Hell
Inferno_Italia.jpg

An Italian child that goes to nursery school must be vaccinated. An illegal immigrant who manages to get into Italy may not be given medical treatment. The doctor is obliged to report him to the authorities. More often than not, the illegal immigrant would rather die than be kicked out of the country. A young Nigerian girl who was working as a prostitute in Bari died of tuberculosis yesterday. Her illness was at a very advanced stage and was highly contagious. Her customers and other people that she met in the past few weeks could now be walking around with consumption. All it takes is one bout of coughing.

The amendment proposed by the Lega, which would force any doctor that treats an illegal immigrant to then sell him out to the authorities, is a masochistic law. A lazaret law that takes us back to the days of Manzoni’s plague because it puts the health of all Italians at risk, simply to weed out an illegal immigrant. The choice is endless. Amongst these imported illnesses are things like TB, scabies, aids, cholera, malaria and leprosy. In the home countries from whence the immigrants come, prophylaxis seldom exists and thus, many of the diseases that have disappeared here by us, are endemic in those countries. The Lega is the party of the new plague-spreaders. The PDL, instead, is the party of the corpse collectors, those that pull the carts full of corpses along the streets.
They are the inventors of immigrant diseases. In Italy there are thousands of people suffering from TB, a disease that is running rampant in Rumania and Bulgaria, both of which are European Union member Countries. What needs to happen is the introduction of a healthcare passport for immigrants from high-risk countries, in order to highlight the phenomenon of illegal immigration. The illegal immigrant must be given the chance to get the treatment he/she needs. Their problem is also our problem. The virus that they carry is a killer. Rape suddenly seems to be the least of our problems.

Still today, Italian children are being vaccinated against illnesses such as measles, while TB is coming across our borders completely undetected from the east. The barn doors of Italy are always open to viruses, while our government always succeeds in making the situation worse rather than better. They simply cannot help themselves and so, at the end of the day, the real virus that is killing Italians lives in our Parliament.

Comments

Here again we have the southern, hypocritical catholic mentality at work in reverse fashion. Infective, virulent deseases like TB, AIDS etc. cannot be taken care by a doctor working in isolation from hospitals, clinics, etc. So, the inconclusive hypocrits from the South are suggesting that the whole medical system in Italy which is depending mainly on Lombard financing, as most Regions in Italy are in the red anyway, thanks to the Mafia making it impossible to risk investments and to encourage migrations to South Italy by Europeans who would give a better civic example to the local decaden populations, Italy, should shoulder the costs of treating these law-breakers and keep silent about their illegal residence. In short an OMERTA', the sicilian practice in the name of a false humanity. Bankrupt Italy cannot afford it you grogos! Bari is a relatively small town and I bet everyone knew about the illegal residence of the african girl, yet the lust for black, different, exhotic flesh encouraged OMERTA' among the sanctimonious lecherous Pugliesi. People who become sick as the result of abuses ( like sodomy) do not deserve treatment anyway in my thinking. Human Rights must be made to go hand in hand with Human Duties.
The world cannot afford molly-codling the million of abusers and self-abusers. One cannot eliminate risks. The upholding of the Law needs to become a severe, necessary priority especially with Italians who need re-education in civic duties.
Viva la Lega Padana e i Celti!
Meridionali, salvo qualche rara eccezione, andate a fan culo!

Beppe,
Helthcare passport is pure racism: this sounds like a Lega Nord's stupid idea.
