T-Shirt of Destruction

From La Repubblica:
The Italian Minister for Reform, knuckle dragger and Northern League politician Roberto Calderoli, liked the anti-Muslim cartoons in the Danish Paper Jyllands-Posten so much that he could not resist printing up a T-shirt with them.

Today, rioters in Bengazi, Libya (a former Italian colony), burned down the Italian consulate. 11 protesters were killed. But it doesn’t end there. Threatening sermons were delived in mosques in Herat, Afghanistan and in Najaf, Iraq where Italian regiments are serving.

Calderoli resigned today but only after being forced to do so by Northern League kingmaker Umberto Bossi.

The religion of peace: if somebody shows a T-shirt we don´t like, we will kill 11 people.
