Italian Party Leader Catches Heat For Likening Female Lawmaker To Sex Doll

“With this rally he has passed every limit of decency.”

ROME ― The outspoken leader of Italy’s anti-immigrant Northern League party drew a chorus of criticism on Monday for comparing the woman speaker of the lower house of parliament to an inflatable sex doll.

While Matteo Salvini addressed the crowd at a rally near the northern city of Cremona on Saturday, a blow-up doll was held up by supporters behind him.

“Boldrini’s clone is here on the stage,” Salvini said, referring to lower house speaker Laura Boldrini. He gave no explanation why he made the comparison. …

The Northern League leader often targets Boldrini, who comes from a small left-wing party, because of her appeals for humane treatment for immigrants. Before being elected to parliament, she was Italy’s spokeswoman for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). …

Maria Elena Boschi, minister for constitutional reforms, accused Salvini of “squalid sexism” which she said offended not only Boldrini but all Italian men and women.

More sexism in Italy. From ANSA news agency:

Naples, July 25 – Carabinieri police on Monday arrested 11 underage boys for the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl in a small town near Naples. The victim reported the incident some weeks ago, saying she was blackmailed into submitting to the gang rape with a video of her having sex with her boyfriend, who is reportedly related to a local Camorra mafia boss.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

According to Italian media the Camorra has tried to cover the incident up. A news site which recently reported on the incident pulled the piece offline after the journalist was threatened.
