Lega Nord marches against migrants and mosques


via. IslamophobiaWatch

Italy – On Saturday some 40,000 supporters of the right-wing Lega Nord party took to the streets of Milan to protest against immigration, under the slogan “No to invasion”.

Lega Nord secretary Matteo Salvini, who headed the march, stopped the demonstration for several minutes outside the town hall to lead the protesters in chants against a plan to build a mosque in Milan.

The march was joined by a contingent of several hundred militants from the fascist organisation Casa Pound.

The Lega Nord demonstrators were confronted by an anti-racist counter-protest organised under the slogan “Those who love freedom hate racism. Stop Lega Nord”.

    Buddhists don’t do those things. Remember Genghis Khan, he was peaceful Buddhist, just like Pol Pot.

    What do you mean with “manufactored past”?

  • Bruno Coro Niembro

    And better not talk about property, divorce, marriage, and inheritance (?) rights!

    Actually, they are separatists who want nothing to do with Italy. Fascist trash still, tough.

    It seems like they’d prefer to go back to the days before even the Risorgimento, let alone the formation of the EEC.

    They loathe Southern Italy, no doubt because of the influence of the Carthaginians, Byzantines and Arabs/Berbers on its historical development. They consider themselves “Celtic”, though the Irish, Scots and Welsh I know find that very amusing.

    Young fledgling, allow me to point you towards the first line of you comment.

    “Muslims have no business whining about the application of laws imposed by other nations.”

    But its Muslims living in those nations, not Muslims living in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia that complaining about the laws of other nations, unlike right-wing Evangelicals that complain about laws of other nations, except nations that are trading partners or predominantly peaceful Buddhists such as those in India and Burma.

    Ever hear of right-wing Evangelicals complaining about abortion in India, even though India aborts close to one million female fetuses per year just because they are female.

    No female rights for Indian women?

    Another right wing retard who apparently tries to justify fascism. So because stuff i happening in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, therefor its okay for Lega Nord to be bigots. Very well then since Lega Nord are marching then people in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia should kick out all westerners.

    I never said the Pakistan or Saudi Arabia are prefect, where did I even mention those countries; even so, how would the actions of these nations justify whole sale racism and xenophobia.
    The Lega Nord are facists, no matter how much you try to sugar coat it.

    “protest REAL civil rights violations, and don’t concern yourself with the business of others”

    So what you saying is that I have no right bashing racist xenophobic pigs because some countries don’t have western style civil rights?

    I will concern myself “with the business of other” so long as these xenophobic pigs are around, if you don’t like what I have to say, you are free to leave

    Muslims have no business whining about the application of laws imposed by other nations

    Muslim should accept any level of discrimination, anywhere in the world, because of what the governments of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia? If we apply that “logic” consistently, I’m pretty sure no one can ever “whine” about anything.

    Christians “whining” about blasphemy laws in Pakistan? According to *your* logic, they’d better not be as long as the the Lord’s Resistance Army is rampaging across Africa!

    The French didn’t give women the right to vote until after the second world war. I believe Turkey gave women the right to vote in 1924 and only because Turkey never came under the hammer of Victorian Colonialists.

    “Im sure the Lega Nord are just upset because they miss El douche Mussolini and want Italy to descend back into a facishit dictatorship”

    Those were good ole days. Women stayed home barefoot, pregnant and made pizza all day and everyday plus everyone had a bicycle and almost a job.

    Now its just all backwards with immigrants buying homes, furniture, cars, clothing and groceries. Luigi doesn’t even own his own Atari yet and there is Abdul who not only owns an XBox but Playstaion 4 with two controllers. Scandalous!

    Loonwatch, you should really do an article about this story

    “Paris Opera Ejects Woman in Veil After Cast Refuse to Sing:

    “A woman in niqab, a traditional Muslim veil, was asked to leave the opera in Paris after the cast said they wouldn’t perform if a solution wasn’t found. She had to leave the auditorium, because wearing a veil covering the whole face is banned in France.

    The incident happened during the performance of La Traviata at Opera Bastille in Paris on October 3, Jean-Philippe Thiellay the opera house’s deputy director, told AFP.

    The fuss blew on Sunday, October 19, in French media.

    The woman and her companion, tourists from one of the Gulf States, were sitting just behind the conductor and were visible to monitors. Their seats were reportedly the most expensive in the opera, costing 231 euros ($294) each.

    The woman was wearing a niqab, a veil that covers her face and hair. It only leaves the eyes and part of the forehead visible.

    She was unnoticed by the opera house’s personnel when she entered the auditorium. Thiellay said that he “was alerted in the second act by a singer,” who spotted her in the front row.

    “Some performers said they didn’t want to sing,” if it wasn’t sorted out, he added. They didn’t like performing for a faceless audience member, reported Metronews, citing Thiellay.

    The woman and her companion were later confronted by an inspector during the interval, who asked the woman either to unveil or to leave the performance.

    “He[the inspector] told her that in France there is a ban of this nature, asked her to either uncover her face or leave the room. The man asked the woman to get up, they left,” Thiellay said, adding that it was unpleasant “to ask someone to leave.”

    “But there was a misunderstanding of the law and the lady either had to respect it or leave,” he said.

    According to a source from Opera Bastille, the couple didn’t demand compensation.

    France passed a related law in 2011, effectively banning the wearing of the niqab in public. This includes public streets, shops, museums, public transportation, and parks. The ban applies to the burqa, a full-body covering, if it covers the face. The only exception for a woman in a niqab and burqa is if she is travelling in a private car or worshiping.

    Those who won’t remove their veils will have to pay a 150-euro ($190) fine.

    The legislation, however, did not forbid the wearing of the hijab headscarf.

    After the incident at the opera, France’s ministry of culture said they are drawing up a new set of rules regarding veils for theatres, museums and other public institutions.”
