Let’s party like it’s 1938!
Roman mayor vows purge of gypsies
The new mayor of Rome promised yesterday to purge the Italian capital of 20,000 illegal immigrants and to raze 85 Roma Gypsy camps.
Gianni Alemanno (50) a firebrand neo-fascist and the first rightwing mayor of the city since the Second World War, vowed to make Rome “secure” as he was sworn into office after his election at the weekend.
In a sign of things to come, after Mr Alemanno’s election, newly-elected Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi declared: “We are the new Falange.”
The original Falange (or Phalanx) was the Spanish fascist party, founded in the 1930s, whose doctrine was adopted by General Franco.
Mr Alemanno’s election was also celebrated by hundreds of supporters chanting “Duce! Duce!” and raising their arms in Mussolini’s Fascist salute.
The new mayor said his first action would be to begin “immediate expulsions” of the 20,000 immigrants in the city with criminal records.
Folks, we are replaying the 1930’s with America starring as Germany, and Italy reprising its original role.
For the record, the last time this bright idea was implemented, 500,000 “gypsies” were sent to their deaths, along with millions of Jews, gays, communists and other defectives.
