Gianluca Buonanno: “Let’s help them there, and leave them there!”

In the following video, the late Gianluca Buonanno, a politician for the Lega Nord, discusses the imperative to stop illegal immigration into Europe. Like Viktor Orbán, Mr. Buonanno advocates helping unfortunate third-world people in their own countries, rather than bringing them into Europe.

Many thanks to Elle Bowlly for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

00:00   Mr. President, as promised, I’m going to behave myself…
00:04   So… [giggles] I’m going to try to intervene in a “normal manner”
00:08   Well, my shirt says it clearly: Stop illegal immigration.
00:12   It’s quite a widespread problem across Europe,
00:16   from trying to limit damages with what happens in Africa
00:22   to dealing with all the problems immigrants bring with them
00:25   to Europe… and first and foremost to Italy.
00:28   I just wanted to point out that perhaps Africans need help
00:32   the way children need help from adults.
00:35   Because when we had the Renaissance, Africans were still picking coconuts…
00:43   Today, WE are in 2015 and many of them are still picking coconuts.
00:48   Therefore, they need to be educated. We need to make sure they stay in their countries,
00:53   and we need to make sure that Europe is able to protect itself and its citizens efficiently.
00:59   These other people are to be helped in THEIR OWN countries, not in ours!
01:03   There’s simply no need to turn the Mediterranean into a cemetery!
01:06   Therefore, the hypocrites and the evil ones are those who make them want to come here!
01:10   Let’s help them there, and leave them there! Thank you.

  1. Halting Muslim migration to Europe is certainly a desirable goal. However life is complicated and there are usually many more than just one desirable goal on the horizon. So it’s nice when someone shares your opinion on one subject, but it is nonetheless entirely possible that he fails to share your opinion on a host of equally important issues, so that your agreement on one issue will prove insufficient to make you firm allies.
    And as a matter of fact when I review Mr. Orban’s political career I indeed see a great many acts that make quite clear that he is opposed to popular self-rule, to the rule of law, and to a great deal of other values that I hold sacred.
    Therefore simply because he keeps the Mohammedans at bay is not sufficient reason for me to like him.
    This Fascist-pampering mentality seems to be a contagious condition among counter-jihadists. Every time someone appears to oppose Islam, even for the most sordid and self-seeking reasons, the counter-jihadist fronde uncritically hails him like a brother and automatically ridicules any suggestion that he may be a Fascist rat.

  2. Thanks for giving more insights of Italy recently. It seems that common sense is more widespread there than elsewhere in Europe. And one never hears anyone remind Italy’ s ” dark” past to beat arguments.
