No Allahu Akhbars in my City!

The mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, made international headlines recently when he asserted that anyone who ran down the streets of his city shouting “Allahu Akhbar” would be shot. When subjected to usual media pressure from the Gutmenschen, he didn’t back down.

There was already a lot to like about Mayor Brugnaro before this controversy. From Wikipedia:

Luigi Brugnaro is an Independent Italian politician, entrepreneur, business executive and the current Mayor of Venice, an office he took a hold of on June 15, 2015.


Brugnaro has attracted controversy via his banning of forty nine books about discrimination and or homosexuality from the city’s schools, including a French Book on gay parenting entitled “Jean Has Two Mums”, and in declaring that there will be no gay pride parade in Venice. Germane to these actions and statements he has engaged in a series of verbal back and forths with the entertainer and activist Elton John, who maintains a home in the city.

They don’t make politicians like that anywhere west of the Iron Curtain except in Italy.

  1. I’m happy he took the books from the (public, not private) library. I don’t know if I would ban any parade but I appreciate the sentiment.

    I’m not anti-gay. I’m pro-US culture.

    I think people in fringe lifestyles, fringe identities should not be persecuted or singled out, but maybe kept in a somewhat discreet closet. Part of an identifiable US culture is the ability to hide between the cracks and still enjoy the protection of the law: physical security and property rights. We keep the traditional view of the family. If someone really can’t deal with that, you can seek out alternatives, but they won’t be on parade. I think all parties gain when the US is confident of itself and enjoys a distinct culture.

    There’s a huge difference between persecuting someone (bad) and not celebrating someone or giving them equal exposure.

  2. “Mayor of Venice says ANYONE who shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ in his city will be shot by snipers.”

    Step 2 – the Veneto regional council hires and strategically positions ventriloquists.

    Step 3 – rinse and repeat.

  3. The mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro, seems to have displayed an amazing degree of perceptivity. few others throughout the entire EU who seem to understand that shouts of “Allahu Akbar!” actually translate into “SHOOT ME NOW!”, instead of the more commonly alluded to translations about how “Our god is greater!” and all of that intolerable rubbish.

    In fact, the more often that these jihadist scum—especially those who publicly bellow “Allahu Akbar!”—get a complimentary dose of high velocity, swift onset lead poisoning, the more chances there are of Western people (and Muslims as well) finally realizing that Islam’s god is NOT greater and, instead, seems rather incapable of protecting that ideology’s coreligionists from whatever consequences of subscribing to the doctrine of this world’s biggest death cult.

    If we are obliged to live in a world of so-called “trigger words”, then overtly shrieking “Allahu Akbar!” certainly should be considered as some sort of “microaggression”. At the very least, this declaration certainly seems to be one that invites all who carry to reach for the trigger.

    For anybody who protests such a notion on the grounds of Free Speech, please consider this: When thousands of brutal jihadist atrocities have been directly preceded by screeches of, “Allahu Akbar!”, it should come as no great surprise that anyone in the vicinity could feel sufficiently threatened to where they might just draw down and snuff whomever is squealing this now-typical prelude to mayhem and murder.

    And so we conclude lesson #15,278 regarding why this planet’s Muslims ought to sit right down, relax, and quaff a tall, foamy glass of STFU!
