Italy the Antidote for Political Correctness

By Michael P. Tremoglie

Who would have believed it? Of all the nations in the world the most anti-politically correct one is Italy.

A few months ago, Italians rejected the European Court of Human Rights ruling that Italian classrooms would have to remove crucifixes. The crosses are commonplace in public schools, as well as other governmental buildings, in that very Catholic nation.

Not only did the Italian government refuse to remove the crosses, some municipalities mandated crucifixes be displayed!

Now Italians are combatting against illegal immigrants from Africa.

Predictably, some of the Italian media - and all of the American media, including the Wall Street Journal - are calling Italians opposed to illegal immigration racists.

So far, the Italian people have not been dissuaded.

Who would have believed that Italy would be the cradle of the anti-politically correct movement. Then again, why not. Italy was partly responsible for the American Constitution. Even the name "America" is from an Italian.
