[Ed. – These are the non-P.C. Italians, granted. Jazz Shaw reports that they tend to vote for the Communists and neo-fascists, which in a blue-collar suburb of Milan (northern Italy) would be a familiar pattern. But their local drama is a symptom of the larger revulsion in Italy, and across Europe, against the EU establishment’s unhinged migrant policies, which are wreaking havoc with European daily life. The Italian national election, expected to be all but unintelligible, is tomorrow (Sunday).]
There’s been a rise in nationalist sentiments and a souring of the public mood toward the waves of migrants and refugees, particularly from Libya and Syria, who have been building up in the country.
Those feelings have been on particularly dramatic display in Sesto San Giovanni, just outside of Milan. The town undertook an unusual “celebration” ahead of the elections. They’ve been actively moving to relocate new immigrants out of the area, and after evicting their 200th migrant from the town, they baked a huge cake with the number 200 emblazoned in the frosting and invited everyone to stop by for a slice. …
The polls open in Italy at seven o’clock tomorrow morning local time and close at 11:00 pm. (That means the polling places are open from one in the morning until five in the afternoon eastern standard time.) … one thing everyone is counting on so far is that’s it’s going to be a mess. If nobody can piece together a functional majority coalition we may yet wind up with a totally unexpected new leader over there.
