One man’s terrorists is another man’s freedom fighter, right?
No Schadenfreude to see here, move on:
The despicable Pom’s who sold their sorry asses to Â become Al Jizz propagandists have their knickers in a twist over the emerging “far right” in EUrabia. Just when everything was going so well! Â So far we haven’t seen Â much “Anger as Italian MP praises Norway gunman”, but Â Laurence Lee knows how you should feel.
Anders Breivik, the far-right extremist who confessed to the killings of 77 people in Norway two weeks ago, has found ideological support in what some may consider an unlikely place: the halls of the Italian parliament.
Mario Borghezio, an Italian politician, has termed Breivik’s philosophy “perhaps great”, a statement for which he was suspended, but not sacked, by his Northern League Party.
Borghezio’s remarks, and those of other right-wing Italian politicians, seem to indicate that mainstream political discourse in the country is moving further rightwards on the political spectrum.
