The mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, made international headlines recently when he asserted that anyone who ran down the streets of his city shouting “Allahu Akhbar” would be shot. When subjected to usual media pressure from the Gutmenschen, he didn’t back down.
There was already a lot to like about Mayor Brugnaro before this controversy. From Wikipedia:
Luigi Brugnaro is an Independent Italian politician, entrepreneur, business executive and the current Mayor of Venice, an office he took a hold of on June 15, 2015.
Brugnaro has attracted controversy via his banning of forty nine books about discrimination and or homosexuality from the city’s schools, including a French Book on gay parenting entitled “Jean Has Two Mums”, and in declaring that there will be no gay pride parade in Venice. Germane to these actions and statements he has engaged in a series of verbal back and forths with the entertainer and activist Elton John, who maintains a home in the city.
They don’t make politicians like that anywhere west of the Iron Curtain except in Italy.
