    If this is not disturbing I don't know what is.

    Seems Rome has a new mayor. But he seems very disturbing.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1915484/Rome's-new-mayor-promises-purge-of-migrants.html

    Alright, yes it is a British newspaper article

    and yes, it is just a mayor. But how can anyone be elected that says things like

    In a sign of things to come, after Mr Alemanno's election Mr 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 celebrated by hundreds of supporters chanting "Duce! Duce!" and raising their arms in Mussolini's fascist salute.
    "We cannot welcome them without discipline," he said. "We will chase out the delinquents. There are 85 abusive nomad (gypsy) camps to destroy."
    Mr Bossi said on Wednesday that immigrants had to be hunted out, and that if reforms were not forthcoming, his followers would take up arms.
    Alright, so I dont know how impartial the publication is but given media bumblings and bias, that still seems like a extremely disturbing development even if it was half true.
    that makes no logic

    This just goes to show the only thing that history can show us is that humans fail to learn from history.

    Honestly though I see parallels in this country with all the conservative rhetoric about immigration.

    I'm sorry that you don't like hearing the truth.

    I'm not saying they should be hunted down like rabid dogs, but things have GOT to change.

    Illegal immigration affects many Americans on a personal level besides billions in taxes going towards paying for their medical bills and other nonsense. How many Americans have been burglarized, raped, brutalized, or even murdered by illegal immigrants that should not have been here in the first place? No, the majority does not engage in such activity, but there is a portion that commits a significant percentage of such crimes in this country and that is unacceptable. The bad eggs ruin it for the bunch. I'm sorry.

    Wow, anybody got some tin foil I can use to make a new hat apparently people are reading my mind. Oh wait they got it all wrong but since anything I say will just have ridiculous assumptions made about it I am just going to keep my mouth shut and goose-step right along with them.

    Our economy would collapse without illegal immigration. It'll probably collapse anyway, but illegal immigration keeps our agriculture-industrial complex going, so it does affect every American on a personal level. And I have no doubt that native-born Americans perpetrate more crimes on illegal immigrants than the other way around.

    Back to Italy, Berlusconi controls ~90% of the media through his own business empire and through government-run media. So Italy is a great example of what a lapdog press can allow to happen. Italians aren't as stupid as they act during elections, but it shows what forced ignorance can accomplish. We're well on our way.
