The white race does not exist, and to say it does is “ignorant,” the President of the Jewish Community of Rome, Ruth Dureghello has announced on Twitter.
“It’s inconceivable that in 2018 one must repeat to ignorant ones that there doesn’t exist a white race to defend, 80 years after the promulgation of the racial laws,” Dureghello wrote in Italian on her twitter feed.
She was reacting to a remark made by Attilio Fontana, a candidate of the Northern League party for the governorship of the province of Lombardy, earlier this week when he said that the Third World invasion of Europe was going to lead to the extermination of the white race.
Fontana, who is running with support from a center-right alliance, whose backers include former Premier Silvio Berlusconi, made the comments on Sunday on Radio Padania, which is run by the Northern League.
He said that being unwilling to “accept all” immigrants “isn’t a question of being xenophobic or racist, but a question of being logical or rational.
“”We can’t [accept them all] because we all don’t fit, thus we must make choices,” Fontana said. “We must decide if our ethnicity, if our white race, if our society must continue to exist or if it must be cancelled out, because there are many more of them than us and they are much more determined to occupy this land than we are.”
Even though Fontana’s remarks are completely accurate—as, given current nonwhite invasion levels and the staggering reproduction rates of nonwhites already present in western Europe, that part of the continent is due to be majority nonwhite by the year 2040 or 2050—the controlled media in Italy went into “uproar” over the comment.
Not even Fontana’s backtracking satisfied the hysteria. He later explained that his remark was “a lapse, an error in expression. I meant to say we must all re-organize a different kind of welcome that respects our history, our society.”
Meanwhile, the Northern League’s charismatic leader, Matteo Salvini, refused to back down and said that Fontana had rightly raised a worry about an “invasion” by Muslims.
Salvini defended Fontana and said his party in government will “regulate every Islamic presence in the country.”
“Our culture, society, traditions, way of live are at risk,” he said. “An invasion is underway.”
The vote for governor is being held on March 4.
* Dureghello’s reference to the “80 years after the promulgation of the racial laws” in her tweet is in relation to the racial laws promulgated by the Mussolini in 1938 which sought to keep Italy European, and which excluded Jews from holding position of public office, political parties, trade unions, banks, insurance companies, higher education, and all media in Italy.
