Bondi-Superchuck, following on from the famous poem dedicated to the little elephant for his birthday:

 “To Silvio
Tasty life
preceded life
followed life
loved life
lively life
life found again
shining life
life unveiled
new life”

which was published in Vanity Fair, has struck once more!
Thanks to an alcoholic delirium, he has sent a letter packed with pastoral significance to 25,000 Italian Parish Priests to mark the occasion of the elections.

”This is our way of dedicating ourselves to bear witness to our faith. Please accept this small gift, our simple brochure, as a way of sharing the difficult task to affirm Christian Truth in our society and in the time that we will be allowed to live. With these sentiments and thoughts please accept my most affectionate greetings. With great cordiality. Yours devotedly”.
Sandro Bondi

These are Superchuck’s words accompanying the leaflet: “The fruits and the tree. Five years of the Berlusconi Government read in the light of the social doctrine of the Church” sent to Parish priests. A brochure that lists the measures taken in favour of the Church in these years, like the law for putting teachers of religious education on a sound footing, the law about Sunday Schools, the abolition of the ICI tax for non profit Church bodies, the battle for reference to the Christian roots of Europe and the defence of the crucifix in schools.
And there’s also the law about assisted fertility, the new law against drugs, world peace missions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo, the exploratory investigation into law 194 on abortion.
A Parish Priest has replied in the name of the whole group by returning the brochure to the sender.

"Mister Bondi,
I’m used to giving words their weight and thus to call you “honourable” I would have to force my conscience.
I have received the impudent brochure that I imagine you have sent to all the Parishes in Italy.
I’m returning it to you without having even thumbed through it and I would like to remind you that the Parish houses are not refuse collection points nor are they brothels where it’s possible to use the services of whores.
We have our dignity, we priests, and we aren’t accustomed to selling off for a dish of beans, our religious, cultural and social patrimony that you have squandered in five years of bad government.

You have plundered everything. You have taken public finances and burdened them with debts. You have reduced local authorities to starvation, on the one hand and on the other you have subsidised Church bodies trying to buy our silence if not actually our complicity.

You have populated Parliament with rascals, thieves and tricksters. Of the 23 convicted Parliamentarians more than half (13 to be precise) are part of your group. You have fornicated with the racism of the Lega and with the fascism of Rauti. With you the rich have become richer and the poor poorer. Your “boss” has multiplied his wealth by a factor of 4., while the companies in the country have encountered crises. The electromechanical sector on its own has lost 7.1% of its turnover in the last quarter of 2005.

In a few years time, our pensioners, not only won’t be able to save a penny, but they will have already started to eat into their meagre savings.
You have spent energy and continuous sittings in Parliament to defend at all costs “your” liberty while the country has tumbled to 41st position in the classification for freedom of the press and pluralism of information, taking the position below Angola.
You have turned workers into merchandise and you have mortgaged the goods.
Please keep to yourself, signor Bondi, your presumption of coherence with the “Social doctrine of the Church”. We priests want to safeguard our freedom to fight and to contest the liberalist and populist waywardness of your coalition.”

Aldo Antonelli (parish priest) - Antrosano

PS Superchuck: he is famous throughout the world even known to those who do not follow comic strips. Superchuck is almost more famous than Alan Ford. He is the mythical Robin Hood the wrong way round. He robs from the poor and gives to the rich. His weapon is his alcoholic-terribly-smelling breath, which the hero feeds first on rotten quality Barbera red wine and then with a deadly mix of terrible onioned-tomatoes. Superchuck, the fat and masked vindictive man, in his ordinary life is a street cleaner, subject to the vexations of his companion. In Italian «chuck» sounds like «ciucco», i.e. "very drunk". (from Wikipedia)

@ Maena:
I found the Wide Angle's video on this site:
I downloaded it, so I can watch it this night, after the TV match Bertinotti-Maroni.
I think I will put the link in my website!
Thanks & ciao!

Such a figure is always miserable, in any time and in any form. Even if this kind of persons are normally very stupid, they can be very dangerous because they are able to do everything to please their idol. History teach us.

Superchuck in Italian means "Superciccio"

After some thinking I can relate Bondi to another sad figure of more than 60 years ago: Martin Bormann, which was Hitler's shadow, always scheming against everybody and eliminating his own personality in favor of his career.

carino, però era Superciuk e non Superchuck!
(ah questo inglesismo imperante!)

Posted by: spamkiller | March 15, 2006 03:02 PM

that's the one.
It is around 1 hour of Berlusconi media regime analysis from an outside Italy point of view.

Guys have a look. Now we know what the h@ll Berlusconi was writing on his papers

Hi Mae!
I didn't find your post in the italian version of this blog(I locked for "maena" in the option "search" of firefox, but I didn't find anything!), but I found the video on the web:

Unfortunatly I can't watch the video yet, because in my office the connection is to slow!
I'll see it at home tonight!
Thank you!

Ciao all,

Bondi is functional to a pathological character personified by Berlus-Kaiser...

A pathological character who reminds me another Italian, a very famous one: Mussolini!!

Was not B. to say that the political prisoners held in prison during the Italian fascist regime in reality were treated such as "tourists", interned in "tourist villages", you know, something like Valtur or Club Mediterranee...

Probably it was just an unfortunate coincidence that see Antonio Gramsci (the most important Italian anti-fascist intellectual) dieing during the internament!!

Mo-Bi-Li-Ta-Zio-Ne x Prodi!

Hi Raffa,

I posted it earlier this morning on the Italian version.

File .avi 795.87 MB 16 sources available on the web.

It is all made in US by WIDE ANGLE. Those American communists!!! ;-)

The Bondi's profile in Wikipedia is very interesting! I didn't know for example that he was the author of the disgusting book: Una storia italiana (A italian history). This guy is really slimy.

Posted by: Raffaella Biferale | March 15, 2006 12:17 PM

Bondi is really disgusting! He represents very well Berlusconi's policies.

P.S. just a note for the critics, please don't associate the "peace missions" in Afghanistan and Iraq with the mission of the Nato in Kosovo!! They are very different cases for crucial reasons...very different!

Posted by: Gentian | March 15, 2006 11:14 AM

Wow, what a man. It warms the heart to know that individuals like the priest exists.

does Bondi understand the reply? He is most at ease with Fascism & racism.

The eloquence of the writer is wasted on Bondi!
I would love to share a meal with the priest!
