Italy: Army General Suspended for 11 Months for Writing Mean Book

How did Italy get so gay so quickly?

It’s like Ireland and Poland. It’s moved at a sonic speed.

Ten years ago, no one would have even bothered calling for this guy to be suspended, because they knew it would be impossible.


An Italian army general reprimanded by the defence minister for publishing a book disparaging LGBT people, migrants, minorities and feminists has been suspended from duty for 11 months, his lawyer said on Wednesday.

The opinions expressed in Roberto Vannacci’s self-published book, “The World Upside Down” made headlines in the national press last year, winning applause from right-wing readers and sparking outrage among left-wing opposition parties.

Defence Minister Guido Crosetto said in August the ministry would take disciplinary action, explaining that the book discredited the army, defence ministry and constitution.

In a statement disclosing Vannacci’s suspension, his lawyer Giorgio Carta said the ministry alleged the book harmed the principle of army neutrality and the prestige of the military administration, and could cause possible imitation within the military structure.

The book says homosexual men are not normal and claims there is an “international gay lobby” trying to brainwash the world. It also appears to question whether Black people can be Italian, referring to Paola Egonu, an Italian volleyball international born in Italy to Nigerian parents.

The book, which Vannacci said has sold over 200,000 copies, made him popular among Italian right-wingers, prompting him to write his autobiography which will be published next month.

Military men and really all heterosexuals should just defect to Russia.

There is no place for normal men in the West anymore. They have cleared out everywhere we used to be able to exist in peace, and they are now hunting us.

Guy spent years in all sorts of shitholes, and this is the thanks he gets
