“All the latest cases of assaults on gays and lesbians have resulted from Islamic parents and children …”. And then: “For the left, gays are endangered beings”. Then, on the merits, he adds: “The data show that in these 10 years there have been hundreds of assaults on gays and lesbians … and therefore it cannot be said that it is an emergency …”. The intervention that is a mixture of shocking phrases and almost surreal reasoning Nicolò Naclerio, municipal councilor of the Brothers of Italy in Vicenza and security delegate. Yesterday in the classroom there was discussion of a proposal by the center-left minority aimed at supporting, on the basis of the Zan Bill, the approval of the proposed law on violence or discrimination on grounds of sex, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Naclerio – who had already jumped to the news in the past for having defined the Fosse Ardeatine as a “led” – began his speech as follows: “We consider homosexuals and all the people who would like to be protected by this law equal to any other citizen, and therefore already protected by the penal code, unlike the left who consider them beings in danger of extinction “. Then the Melonian councilor analyzes, in his own way, the problem of attacks against members of the LGBT community: “The data show hundreds of physical and verbal attacks on LGBT subjects in ten years … So it is not to be considered an emergency in no way”. The thesis put forward is this: “To consider it an emergency would be an insult to all the police forces and to all citizens who are attacked, stabbed and machete by irregular immigrants throughout Italy every day … not in ten years. “. At this point Naclerio ventures into a singular thrust to say the least: “All the latest cases of assaults on gays and lesbians have resulted from Islamic parents with their children”. The final comment: “So maybe this forced immigration that you on the left impose on the country without having been elected is not that perhaps you are the bearer of violence and death?”.
When the municipal councilor delegated for safety concluded his speech, the minority colleagues intervened for the minority Ennio Tosetto and Sandro Pupillo, who defined Naclerio’s words as “serious and hallucinatory”, inviting him to be ashamed. “These are words out of the democratic debate”. “Naclerio’s speech perfectly represents the way of thinking of these people, who are far right”, attacks Pupillo.
The provincial secretary of the Democratic Party of Vicenza, Chiara Luisetto, commented: “Continuing instrumentally to oppose some rights to others, judging freedom and equality in civil rights as secondary or worse useless, is the way to give breath and legitimize those who act with violence. of a city like Vicenza to comment in this way on the worrying data on violence perpetrated with homophobic intent is even more serious and dishonorable. is targeted, they are unacceptable in particular when expressed by those who must respect and honor the citizens they should serve, all citizens – concludes Luisetto – Once again Vicenza is at the center of inadmissible and shameful words “. For the MEP of the Democratic Party, Alessandra Moretti, “Naclerio’s intervention has embarrassed everyone. The hostility towards the other that transpires from his intervention is the furthest away from the values of a city decorated with two gold medals for military valor, one of which for the Resistance. I hope that all the democratic political forces and the administration will distance themselves from the councilor in question. It would be too dangerous to legitimize violence and racism, even with silence alone “.
