Italian police uncover Nazi plot as 19 arrested and weapons seized | World news | The Guardian

Suspects allegedly wanted to create ‘openly pro-Nazi, xenophobic, antisemitic group’

==========================================================
Police in Italy say they have arrested 19 far-right extremists who wanted to form a new Nazi party.

In raids across the country, police discovered weapons, explosives, Nazi plaques featuring swastikas, Nazi flags and books on Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. 'According to prosecutors in Sicily, investigating a group named Black Shadows, the suspects allegedly wanted to create “an openly pro-Nazi, xenophobic, antisemitic group called the Italian National Socialist Workers’ Party”.
================================================
Looks like neo-fascism is spreading in Europe as well as the U.S.

Why is it illegal to form a political party? That fact is more disturbing than anything presented in the OP.

Then you should tell your people to stop spreading it.

OP is an Italian Nazi?

I was fooled by his impeccable English. My bad.
I'm just going to chalk up the fact that you didn't read the full line of his post in the OP, because you're were incapable of doing so.

Because ignorance is your best shield at this point.

You are mistaking mockery for ignorance.

Full disclosure: I am not actually making any attempt at an argument. I am just laughing at how badly you've sucked up viral ideas handed to you about your "opposition".

1. I saw a report on TV re: the situation in Italy.

2. This is a serious topic that should be treated seriously.

3. The TV report mostly concentrated on unkind remarks being shouted at a soccer player of African descent.

4. Many Italians are horrified by what they see as a growing intolerance toward non-Caucasians and Jewish people living in Italy.

5. I hope that the Italian government will take stern measures against the so-called Nazis if they break the law and stern measures against soccer fans who insult players because of their ethnicity, AND I hope that the Italian government will institute reasonable immigration laws. Many Italians, I have read, are genuinely concerned about the number of immigrants who are coming to their country.

That it would disturb YOU comes as no surprise.

Best stay clear of Italy.

They have a right to be genuinely concerned, if the capital Rome is anything to go by.

I was there a few weeks ago, arriving at the Termini by train. I was sadly shocked to see the Termini itself, and the surrounding streets littered with countless homeless immigrants from Africa, North Africa and/or the Middle East.

They were either hanging around in doorways or on street corners begging. Many were sleeping rough, or passed out from drinking. The stench from the urine was disgusting, and the area in general had a very bad vibe to it.

It was a very sad state of affairs indeed.

19 people arrested for doing what? Having a difference of opinion than the rest of 60 million Italian population. What you so afraid of?

not you Kamerad, not you.

Alone by the dishonesty of your postings you wouldn't amount to much over here. But start hoarding weapons and explosives and then ask that stupid question in court and you'd probably get sent for treatment rather than jail.

Once everyone has stopped laughing their heads off, that is.

For planning a terrorist attack.

Groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda also have “differences of opinion” with the rest of the populace. Should we allow them to carry out their attacks because you are upset some of your fellow travelers got busted?

If that's proven, then lock them up.

The arms cache they were building means nothing with you? On one hand in the London Bridge thread you want terrorists shot and yet here, you defend potential white terrorists arrested before they can do anything.

Naziism is like the ISIS movement or the Nation of Islam black racist movement in that the philosophy is motivated by hate and ignorance. People need God, not wicked gurus leading mobs of deluded sociopaths into violence.

Italy police uncover plot to form new Nazi party

Italy police uncover plot to form new Nazi party, authorities say


Some of the weapons and other items seized in the raids.

11/2919
Italian police said Thursday that they had seized weapons and far-right propaganda material from the homes of 19 suspected extremists who were hoping to form a Nazi party in the country. The Polizia di Stato said that searches had taken place in 16 cities and towns, including Milan, Genoa, Livorno, Turin, Padua and Verona. It was not immediately clear how many people, if any, were arrested and police gave no estimate of how many people were members of the self-styled Italian National Socialist Workers Party. Authorities said the raids, dubbed "Operation Black Shadows," stemmed from "the monitoring of extreme right-wing local groups all united by the same ideological fanaticism and intending to constitute a pro-Nazi, xenophobic and anti-Semitic movement." They added that some suspects "had a vast amount of weapons and explosives at their disposal" while others tried to recruit new members by posting anti-Semitic and Holocaust-denying material on social media. The Italian news agency ANSA identified a senior member of the group as a 50-year-old woman from Padua who police say called herself "Hitler's Sergeant Major" in private group chats. Another reported suspect is a 26-year-old woman from Sicily who won an online "Miss Hitler" beauty contest and spoke at a far-right conference in Lisbon this past August. Police identified one suspect as a former convict believed to be a senior figure in the 'Ndrangheta mafia and a former member of the Forza Nuova (New Force) far-right party. Authorities said the group had made contact with far-right parties in Portugal, Britain and France. It is illegal under Italian law to try to revive fascist parties or practice "defense of fascism."
I would imagine that this phenomena is occurring more often than is realized in Europe.

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the Italian Fascists as a movement were never truly punished and pursued as a movement to the same level as the Nazis in Germany (who were not pursued or punished nearly enough, in my opinion). The same goes for most other parallel fascist movements throughout Europe. Most of the kidnappers, torturers, and murderers were allowed to lead regular lives with their families and disseminate their ideologies further down the generations.

You need to have a browse at some of the other threads on here, as this topic is already up and running elsewhere..

“Lock them up”?

Gee, in the other thread you are going on and on about how death is the only rehabilitation for terrorists.

Hmm.....

The double standard is rather amusing.

Hell, in many countries in Eastern Europe nazis and their collaborators are increasingly being celebrated as heroes.
