A tranquil Italy of fear

video_aranciameccanica.jpg


The mayors are in the front line against violence, but not that of the rapists. That of the tourists who come to Italy to spend a quiet weekend of fear. An inexperienced tourism. People who are exposed to risk in their tent or their camper. An attitude that ruins Italy’s reputation abroad.
A German couple with a little dog, park their car and camp on a beach at Torre Annunziata. They are beaten up, the woman is raped by three ITALIANS who according to the report, each go for two rides round in a car with her. The little dog bites one of the three ITALIANS and in revenge has his throat cut.
Giosuč Sparita, centre left mayor of Torre Annunziata has been keen to point out that the two tourists “with a bit of extra attention could have avoided the horrible episode of violence”.
Two Dutch cyclists stop at the outskirts of Rome. They put up a tent in a field at Porta Galeria, in the South. They are beaten to within an inch of their lives by two RUMANIANS with sticks. She is raped by two RUMANIAN shepherds (one has been expelled some time ago). The woman lost almost all her teeth. Now she is in hospital together with her husband.
Gianni Alemanno, the Centre Right mayor of Rome, said about the episode: “If two tourists come to Rome by bicycle and if they go and camp in a place that has been abandoned by God and by men after having asked advice about where to put up their tent from a bunch of immigrant shepherds, OK, it’s difficult to guarantee their safety. What they did was seriously imprudent.”
In their own countries Dutch and Germans, but it’s the same for Danish and Irish people, set up their tents in a meadow and sleep peacefully. With us they are raped twice, by the delinquents and by the authorities. Camping in the outskirts of Rome “abandoned by God and by men” where there are roaming “bunches of shepherds” or on a beach in Campania without “taking certain precautions” for the local delinquents is more dangerous than sleeping in a forest in Tanzania.
The Italian in HIS OWN HOME has bars at the windows, armoured doors and anti-theft devices and the tourist comes to Italy in a tent without a pit-bull and firearms?
Abroad they think that the film Gomorra is fiction, but in fact it is true. The tourists, before setting off, should be obliged to watch it with open eyes like the protagonist of Clockwork Orange.

In Europe, if you own a gun you are a criminal

In USA, if you own a gun, criminals leave you alone.

I'm so glad I don't live in Italy anymore because I would feel like in a cage with all those monkeys on the outside staring at me.

One would think the mayor of Rome to be a compassionate man: after all, Rome is the centre of Christianity.

Not the case at all. When in Rome victims get victimized.

The mayor believes the Dutch couple made their own bed when they were beaten and raped.

He said they asked the wrong people for a place to camp.

He said they should have known better.

Another mayor of a town near Naples also blamed the victims for the mean aggression they incurred.

Italy has become the country where foreigners, whether migrants or tourists, are blamed for everything.

They're blamed for getting beaten and are blamed for a non-existent escalation of violence.

Trash on the streets? Blame the foreigners.

Women raped? Blame the migrants.

No mosques for muslims.

Italy is a mess. So Italians blame outsiders, chase Africans vendors off their beaches and have Gypsy children fingerprinted.

In an attempt to cover up Italy's xenophobia Prime Minister Berlusconi, goes around saying he has increased Italy's prestige abroad.

In the meantime, his ministers go around the country spreading fear and shift the blame for common street violence on foreigners in order to explain the presence of soldiers in the streets of their cities.

It's "blame the foreigners time" in Italy.

I actually leave in Ireland and one of my colleagues and IRISH guy of 25 years old did not went camping anywhere, did not talk to any ROMANIAN people, did not hide anywhere, was just walking in one of the most popular street of Dublin and got his throat slid by a drunk guy when he tried to settle down a fight between this drunk IRISH and his girlfriend.

I kinda hate generalization :)

Ciao

Ok. So everybody agree that we have to stop Politicians. But how? From inside? From outside?
How can you stop somebody covered by laws and police?

I could not avoid not to comment on the last blog from Beppe about the quality of power in my country. The history is very clear as to what happened at the end of the 2nd War: The Americans helped us!

Excerpt from the above webpage, anyway the story is well known. The job was not finished!

"Over the years various Mafia families took greater control over the Italian countryside, selling surplus raided food to other regions of Europe in exchange for other supplies. It wasn't until the rise of Mussolini that that the government even attempted to take action against the Mafia. When he was taken from power at the end of the Second World War, many anti-Mussolini activists, including Mafia members, were put into positions of power."

The "sub-humans" are the politicans we have now in italy. Pls if you want to make something good for italy and for yourself don't come here anymore for vacation, you will save a bad holiday for you and a lot of troubles for the italians who don't earn anything from tourism but just organization problems. Italy is owned by mafia and tourism, that is.

(This is a corrected copy of a previous
uploading. Please excuse the strong language but there is no other way at expressing my anger and shame! Chiedo scusa. Nulla di personale. Puramente accademico, retorica.)

As I always say I am ashamed to have cultural ties with the Italy of post-WWI. The cowardish ( la imbelle) Italian Republic appears to have been infiltrated since the end of the Monarchy at the end of WWII by the Mafiosi, by their lackeys and by an ocean of anti-patriotic descendants of the slaves Rome brought into Italy, people "senza sangue in faccia" ( “without shame”). The Promises of the Risorgimento were Freedom but not without Duties. We have been copying imbecillic America and its naive, spineless Constitution ( Thomas Jefferson, one of the Founding Fathers was a sexual abuser of his black slave women. No wonder if the Constitution talks about Rights without stressing Duties ). During the Monarchy Duties came prior to Rights. The WWII has encouraged violent, arrogant, inherently treacherous Partisans. Why did they not stop Mussolini instead of agreeing with him in Piazza Venezia oh fanfaroni dell'ostrega! Partisans probably were a necessary evil caused by Fascism and Nazism, but have created a precedent for chaos, violence and disorder in Italy in the name of human rights and liberty without DUTIES.
What we need in Italy is a modified Democracy which seriously hunts down, apprehends and prosecutes premeditating anti-national, anti-social criminals like Mafiosi. Martial Law should be declared for political, social, organised criminality. No priviledges or innunities, no INDULTO. Back-breaking penalties, confiscations etc. Sending them and their families to the Borders removing the defaulters from their sardegna,sicilian, calabrian, pugliesi recruiting nests where they have century-old roots, distributing them all over Italy, compelled to report to Police centres, vetoed to become entrepreneurs for two generations etc.. Draconian solutions are required, else Italy shall remain a SEWER of shameful people " un vituperio delle genti" ( “ a permanent shame”). All these southerners, the cunning levantines who claim to be Italians but are just descendents of Roman slaves should remove that cunning smile/smirk from their bastardised faces and make up their minds as to what Italy is supposed to be like, in accordance to the real patriotic Italians who liberated it during the Risorgimento. Federate Italy into three responsible, accountable States, financial distributions to be on the basis of merit and achievement of seriously and measured national goals. Reduce the ridiculous number of the Members of Parliament, a laughing stok abroad where a couple dozen politicians govern Nations 100 times larger than ridiculous and pretentious Italy. Reduce the wasted money on the national parasites at Montecitorio, where one sees an ocean of useless heads. remove the inheritable pensions etc.
Unless Italy is reformed and cleansed at the TOP, the present miscegenated, bastardised, irresponsible, unethical, unchristian perjurers holding the reins of government, shall have a vested interest in not adopting the required draconian measures to reform Italy as a whole, since this would then be required by the increased severity of the Law to also apply to themselves in turn. By the ruse and hypocrisy of appearing to be democratic ( liberty without duties), lenient, accomodating, tolerant, they seek to gain a breathing space for themselves and their class and believe to be thus guaranteing their own survival and immunity. History shows corruption finally causes its own end, like a desease.
So, it is of no use oh Beppe Grillo to inveigh against the disorganised, non-seriously, not-large-scale, low-class, low-level desperate, petty criminals at the bottom. You have, and perhaps you are, to start from the top.
But perhaps you are being financed by, from the very top to create a bit of smoke, and ” come prima, piu’ di prima, tutto sara’ e tornera’ ad essere come e’ sempre stato”. Andate tutti a mori’ ammazzati, brutti schifosi ruffiani, chiunque voi siate, ovunque voi siate e vi nascondete. Possa Dio punire voi e i vostri discendenti per generazioni, persino estirpare il vostro seme. Vergognatevi! Povera Italia, vituperio delle genti. Destati oh Italia!
Amen!

These beasts which are not humans but sub-humans must be a first step of nature to the real humans. I hope the peaceful people will get the control one day.
