Right now Italy is in a mess. The home of one of the greatest empires to have ever existed is now reeling amid ever growing coronavirus infections. Why Italy is in a mess when other parts of Europe aren’t is easily answered. A local virologist recently went on record with left wing media outlet CNN stating his country’s biggest failure was due to not wanting to appear racist.
Italy is punching well above its weight by recording the 2nd largest number of coronavirus infections in the world. According to the worldometer website, Italy has the twenty-third largest national population on the planet. To explain their terrifyingly high infection and kill rate, Dr Giorgio Palu told CNN, “There was a proposal to isolate people coming from the epicenter, coming from China,” he said. “Then it became seen as racist, but they were people coming from the outbreak.”
The story is now very difficult to find on CNN’s website. If readers of Conservative Kookaburra click the link above they will be taken direct to the article on CNN.
Meanwhile, more alarming leftist virtue signalling has been revealed by the Blaze website. A report by Giancarlo Sopo with links to the Twitter account of the Mayor of Florence told how he launched a, “Hug A Chinese” campaign. The tweet of Mayor Dario Nardella dates Feb 2, 2020. Italy now has 63,927 infections and 6,077 deaths (as of 21:40 AEDT).
Below are two more videos accessible on YouTube that provide footage of Italians hugging a Chinese Italian man holding a sign saying, “I’m not a virus” and a Chinese woman with a sign saying, “I am a Chinese not virus.” In both videos, foolish Italians embrace the placard holders in total ignorance of the danger that lie ahead of the nation.
