It came as no surprise to learn that Mario Borghezio, Farage's friend and colleague, thinks that Col Gaddafi was “a great leader, a true revolutionary who should not be confused with the new Libyan leadership swept into power by NATO's bayonets and by oil multinationals”. The fact that Gaddafi was a tyrant, terrorist and murderer appears to be of no concern to Lega Nord's wannabe Mussolini.
But should we so surprised? After all, Borghezio has multiple convictions for racially motivated violence, including an attack on a 12 year old child in 1991. In April 2000, during a regional election campaign, Lega Nord members chanted Borghezio's controversial "Prayer of the Gypsy", with its reference to the gassing of "nomads". He has also been filmed more recently explaining to a group of young fascists the need to infiltrate "mainstream" political organisations.
Borghezio has been linked with the neo-Nazi terrorist group "New Order". However, in a recent interview with Italian journalist Claudio Sabelli Fioretti, Borghezio admitted to his involvement with the Belgian Nazi Jean Thiriart, the founder of Young Europe, a group that espoused a united Europe "from Vladivostok to Dublin", organised in accordance with National Socialist principles.
You may recall that Borghezio was suspended from his own party, Lega Nord, in Italy for one month, but still remained a full member of the EFD. His suspension followed his comments in response to the tragedy in Norway where seventy-six people, including children, were killed by Anders Behring Breivik.
Borghezio, described the ideas of Breivik as "good" and "excellent".
So will Farage, Batten, the odious Nuttall, Bufton, Clark, Bloom and the rest of that sordid clique condemn their EFD colleague's latest comments? We await their reaction with interest!
From New Europe:
EU High Representative Catherine Ashton issued a separate statement, saying, “If confirmed, his death brings closure to a tragic period in the lives of so many Libyans.”
However Lega Nord MEP Mario Borghezio, whose proximity to sanity is doubted by many, took a different line, praising Gaddafi in a statement saying: “The end of Gaddafi, who died fighting surrounded by his remaining loyalists, is undoubtedly a glorious one.” He added that Gaddafi deserved “chivalrous” respect as a “Templar of Allah”.
He also said Gaddafi was, “a great leader, a true revolutionary who should not be confused with the new Libyan leadership swept into power by NATO's bayonets and by oil multinationals”.
