Parents complain about Christmas carols banned at Italian schools

    Christmas is approaching and, as has been happening in recent years, the theme of Italian traditions is back in the limelight, and specifically the creation of the nativity scene in schools.

    But a new element of discord among the do-gooders who attack Christianity in the name of a more complete and total integration with foreigners present in the country, is Christmas carols.

    Matteo Salvini was the first to report the fresh outbreaks of dissent within the schools. The League leader was in Rimini to speak at an electoral rally held in the Romagna town in favor of the candidate in the upcoming regional elections of Emilia Romagna, Lucia Bergonzoni.

    Before the intervention of the leader of the Carroccio the now famous “sardines” had gathered a flash mob to make their dissent heard. The former Minister of the Interior posted a photo of a plate of fried sardines on his social media page, as a response to the constant provocation.

    On the stage of the Rimini rally, Salvini confirmed having received numerous reports from parents worried that once again, using the excuse that Italian children should be “open” towards other cultures and religions, schools are planning to ban traditions linked to the Christmas season.

    “They are beginning to send me mail, various grandmothers, grandparents and teachers, messages that tell me ‘Matteo do something because they are about to cancel Christmas, in my son’s school they have banned the crib, they don’t let them do Christmas carols,” Salvini said. He added that he was worried about the increasing drift in many Italian institutions.

    “These are dangerous characters, because whoever cancels Christmas, who cancels history, culture, identity and tradition cannot transmit values,” the former Deputy Premier pointed out.

    He said the Christian roots and traditions of Italy were undeniable, and there was no need to justify them to anyone. “We have nothing to be ashamed of,” Salvini noted.

    One of the leaders of the sardines, Mattia Santori says that the sardine was born in the Bologna area, the region of the far-left par excellence. “There we felt invaded by a political discourse based on aggression, drama and falsity. Ours is a role of antibodies. We are more of an antibody than a political movement”.

    The leader of the minnows, in fact, says that from “Bologna we sounded the alarm, we don’t ask ourselves questions about the future because the present is quite dense”.

    But although he has tried to distance himself from specific “political positions” he quickly admitted that in the case of Emilia Romagna “there is a very large center-left project, there is the PD, there is a project of Emilia Romagna in the future, there is civil society. We represent the center-left well”.

    In short, the sardines is a project of the left to try to re-launch themselves.

    The latest Swg poll, published by Quotidiano Nazionale, shows that the center-right is ahead by 8 points in the case of PD and M5S running alone and at least 5 points ahead in case of agreement between the two leftist parties.

    If the M5S party decides to run independently, the center-right stands at 48,5 percent against 40 percent of the center-left. In particular, the Lega would be the first political formation with 32 percent, the PD at 27 percent and M5S at 8,5 percent.

    Salvini has also come out in favor of cameras in nursery schools and nursing homes to give voice to the defenseless.

    “Sincerely I don’t see where the problem can be, I don’t understand those who criticize us for this proposal. Cameras in kindergartens and nursing homes are the most normal, safe and also the least invasive way to prevent certain behaviors.” A week ago two teachers from a Cosentino nursery school were arrested for the ill-treatment of small children.

    The Lombardy Region will allocate funds for the installation of the cameras. If it were to win in Emilia Romagna, the League will make cameras in such locations a priority. “I am sure that Lucia Borgonzoni will be able to put into practice a concrete, effective and common sense measure. The best answer to the left that is delirious about the ‘Big Brother’ danger.”

      At the end of the day, it will not be the number of “sardines” that can be assembled by flash mob techniques, but rather the number of voters on election day that are willing to vote for Salvini’s coalition and end a long period of leftist rule in Emilia-Romagna and Calabria.
