Italian Senate’s vice prez calls black minister “Orangutan”

by pio dal cin . Codognè.Treviso.Italy.
I knew that I was living in a beautiful Country. Italy is wonderful. One of Italy’s biggest problem is that there are too many politicians.
People that are elected by the people for the people (at least this should be the reason why they are in the Parlament).

The problem with most of them, is that they make too much money, given the amount of hours they spend trying to make things better for us “pheasants”.

Yeasterday one of them, not just one of them, but the Senate’s Vice President Roberto Calderoli (see photo below) called one of the Government’s Ministers an “Orangutan” sparking a debate among the politicians on his resignment.

The Minister he adressed as “Orangutan” happens to be the very first black woman in Italian history to hold such a prestigious spot, and Calderoli has exaggerated too much being a member of the Lega Nord, a right wing party known for its anti immigration positions and bills throughout the years
Cecile Kyenge has been the target of many anti black protests since she became a member of the Letta’s government, but never before she was adressed so brutally and directly by a member of the Italian Parliament
Roberto Calderoli is not new to “boutades” like these.
In 2006 he sported a T-shirt with jokes on Allah and the Italian Embassy in Lybia was theatre of a riot that left eleven people dead
Time to stop this man. Racial attacks should not be tolerated both by the Italian Government and from the European Community

I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this Government: ‘I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.’ We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival. Speech in the House of Commons, after taking office as Prime Minister (13 May 1940).
