Do you people remember when Berlusconi lost the elections? I personally felt terribly relieved, the guy was ugly, smug, corrupt and terribly stupid (not to mention that he was an American puppet and I don’t mean it in any derogative manor)! At least that’s my personal opinion about him. I was kind of pleased to see Prodi take charge, of course you’re going to say: Yeah right! As if he’s the solution to all our pains! He’s a sissy he’s this, he’s that!
But you know what? I like people like Prodi, the guy’s something to interact with. And he’s a center left. I guess most were pleased to see his coalition refuse the American supremacy and I don’t know what, which is natural, but he was also a LEFT WING.
Left wing = no God created the world in 7 days
Left wing = no fanatic christianism
Left wing = no new crusades
Left wing = better rights for women
Left wing = better rights for Homosexuals
Unfortunately, in our less than perfect world, we pay more attention to fucking the US than we do to human rights for example. And Prodi is no exception, not that blame or hate the guy, no I do understand his position.
I mean he built a coalition on the following bases:
- better rights for unmarried domestic partners (which includes gay people certainly)
- A more strict and independent policy toward the US, in other words, withdrawal of the Italian troops from Afghanistan among other things.
What happened is that Prodi is not an airhead, he can’t possibly say: “um ok I promised my voters to withdraw, I will do so NOW”
That’s unheard off, that would be a coward stunt and a stab to Italy’s credibility in the future.
Unfortunately, Communist extremists didn’t see it that way…. Apparently they love to see extreme measures and to put things into chaos. So when Prodi presented his platform paper on the Senate, 2 communist PM voted against it (even though they are part of the coalition), thus jeopardising the governmental coalition and risking early elections. Early election that might benefit Berlusconi and bring him back to power. Here’s the big question: what were they thinking? Ok! So they don’t like Prodi’s attitude but is Berlusconi better? WTF were they thinking? Were they thinking at all? probably not… they are communists, perpetual dreamers.
Facing this dilemma, Prodi came up with the easiest way out was to sacrifice (it is still under discussion, hope he changes his mind) the Gay rights. A promise is a promise one might say, but unlike the Communist idiots, the other pro-homosexual rights are not stupid enough to risk blocking such a policy there fore risking the governmental coalition. They would prefer a lying Prodi on an honest Berlusconi…. Go figure.
