I woke up this morning, feeling fine.
Because somewhere out there there’s a politician who actually follows through on their promises.
The Italian government passed a law that clamps down on asylum rights and boosts funds for police, handing Interior Minister and right-wing League party leader Matteo Salvini his first major legislative win.
The lower house of parliament voted 396 to 99 late on Wednesday to pass the law championed by Salvini, who took office in June in a coalition with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement.
The new law eliminates humanitarian grounds for granting protection to refugees — asylum that is not tied to political persecution or war. It also funnels millions of euros to law enforcement and anti-mafia administrators.
“I’m willing to host women and children who are escaping from war … But all the others, no,” Salvini said on Thursday, referring to the new legislation. “I don’t want to be seen as an idiot.”
Italy will still award asylum to war refugees or victims of political persecution. But it will no longer hand out “humanitarian” asylum, which was given to those who had “serious reasons” to flee their home country – a category that has often included homosexuals fleeing harsh anti-gay laws in Africa.
GO BE GAY SOMEWHERE ELSE, NIGGER
More than 20,000 people, or 25 percent of those who sought asylum, got “humanitarian” protection last year, and the tens of thousands of others received it in previous years will now likely lose their legal status when their documents expire.
All good things begin in Italy, fam. I don’t think this can be debated anymore. Just accept the Med master race into your heart and soul and all will be fine.
But I know what you’re thinking.
Why didn’t Salvini wait 2 years and engage in 4D shenanigans before going balls to the wall and using his popular mandate to simply deliver what he promised his supporters?
The League’s lawmakers celebrated the passage of the law on Thursday by unfurling a banner outside the lower house of parliament that read: “The Salvini decree is law; the good times (for migrants) are over.”
Salvini campaigned on an anti-immigration platform against the backdrop of hundreds of thousands of migrant-ship arrivals from North Africa in recent years, and he closed the country’s ports to migrant rescue ships after taking office.
Largely as a result of his hard line on immigration, the League, after winning some 17 percent in the March election, has doubled its support, rocketing past its 5-Star partner.
The League’s backing is now 34 percent, compared with 25 percent for 5-Star, a Noto Sondaggi poll published this week showed.
Who knew that delivering on your promises actually increases people’s support for you?
It gets BETTER.
Just before the passage of the legislation on Wednesday, Salvini reaffirmed his tough stand on immigration, saying he opposed a United Nations pact to regulate the treatment of migrants that Italy had supported, prompting Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to call a parliamentary debate on the issue.
So much for tacking to the center and appeasement. This nigga got into office and doubled-down.
The new law also foresees the use of electric tasers for the first time by local police, and increases jail time for people who promote illegal occupations of public or private buildings.
In response to a series of attacks in Europe aimed at causing mass casualties, the law heightens controls on people who rent trucks, and strips naturalized foreigners who are convicted on terrorism charges of their Italian citizenship.
Are you telling me that all it took was a cabinet minister with balls to shut Antifa down, end the bullshit humanitarian asylum laws, and begin stripping Fake Italians of their citizenships?
Is this really all that it took?
And then it’s back to the beach for babes, boobs and squirt gun fights.
I love this man.
I love Italy.
Time to go digging in the ol’ family tree for my Italian connection.
