OMG! We’ve got the best news! Anti-gay fascism’s alive and well in Rome. Super, right! It’s all the rage with the ever-trendy, Mussolini-praising, Holocaust-loving teenaged hooligan masses. And, no, they weren’t being ironic:
Right-wing extremists shouting pro-fascist slogans ransacked a gay cultural association in Rome.
A statement from the association, the Mario Mieli Homosexual Cultural Circle, said a large group of youths had burst into the club Thursday evening and trashed the premises. After club members intervened, the vandals ran off, shouting slogans praising Holocaust-era death camps and Benito Mussolini.
Locals blame a tense pre-election climate for the invasion. We blame bad parenting.
