Rome, June 14 - A leading figure from the
anti-immigrant Northern League on Friday condemned the furore
surrounding a councillor from his party who said Italy's first
black minister should be raped.
On Thursday, Padua Councillor Dolores Valandro posted on
Facebook that someone should rape Integration Minister Cecile
Kyenge "so she knows what it feels like" in response to the
report of an Italian woman who was allegedly raped by an African
man.
"The anti-League sentiments, prompted by that indefensible
outburst on Facebook, belie an equally shameful motive...The
pro-immigration hypocrites want to silence this taboo topic (of
immigrant rapists) as much as possible," said League MEP Mauro
Borghezio.
"A civilized society mustn't forget the serious fact that
sparked the case to begin with: the rape of a woman by a foreign
immigrant".
Borghezio and other members of the League, whose outspoken
opposition to immigration and diversity are a major platform of
the movement, have been quick to target Kyenge, a Congolese-born
doctor, since her appointment in April.
Soon after Borghezio claimed Kyenge would "impose her
tribal traditions from the Congo" on Italy.
He later apologized, but the EFD Eurosceptics group in the
European Parliament kicked him out for his remarks nevertheless.
Hours after the League councillor made her rape comments
Thursday, League leaders said she would be expelled from the
party and apologized to Kyenge.
