UKIP Leader Nigel Farage Blasts ‘Repugnant’ Comments of MEP Expelled for Racism

Dion Dassanayake, Express (London), June 3, 2013

Nigel Farage has blasted comments made an Italian member of the European Parliament for ‘repugnant’ and ‘racist’ remarks towards a black minister today.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader blasted Mario Borghezio for comments about Cecile Kyenge being appointed Italy’s integration minister.

The politician from Italy’s Northern League party said Ms Kyenge would want to impose her country’s ‘tribal traditions’ on Italy in an interview in April.

As a result Mr Borghezio has been kicked out of the Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD) group in the European Parliament which Mr Farage is co-president of.

Mr Farage said: “I made it clear at the last Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group meeting that unless Mr. Borghezio was expelled that UKIP would leave the Group.

“Mr. Borghezio has now been expelled for his repugnant comments. We have sent out an unmistakeable signal that racist comments are unacceptable.”

Mr Borghezio was kicked out of the eurosceptic EFD group by a majority vote.

In response to his dismissal, he claimed Mr Farage wanted him out of the group because he had annoyed the UKIP leader’s ‘powerful friends in the City of London.’

The dig at Mr Farage, who used to be a commodity trader, referred to Mr Borghezio’s campaigns against tax havens and financial privileges.

Mr Borghezio will remain an MEP but will lose some speaking time now he is outside of the seven main political groupings.

The offending comments came in a radio interview, when he had also said: “This is the government of Bonga Bonga.”

Furthermore, he claimed ‘Africa hasn’t produced great geniuses as anyone can see from a Mickey Mouse encyclopaedia” and called on Ms Kyenge to condemn polygamy.

    I would be interested to see a list of African geniuses.

    • BonusGift

      African geniuses is an oxymoron if there ever was one.

      • Patty Mudd

        Who you callin’ oxymoron, yo?

      • sbuffalonative

        As is ‘black culture’.

        • BonusGift

          Touché!

          • Fr. John+

            Even rap music can’t be spelled correctly, until you put a “c” in front of it.

      The few semi-successful Black scientists are always promoted by the liberal media way beyond their achievements simply for being back, à la Neil deGrasse Tyson. Admittedly he seems like an intelligent enough fellow, but there’s no knowing how much of his fame can be attributed to his black face as opposed to his ideas.

      • brengunn

        Exactly. It must be very embarrassing for black scientists who are promoted by the media on the basis of their race. It would certainly change their working environments and the attitudes of their co-workers. I would hate to be in such a position though I suppose there are those that milk it for their own benefit.

      • Romulus

        What ideas? What brainiacs? You can probably count on both hands and feet how many smart sub Saharan African nubians, there have ever been. Check out http://www.locustblog.com for a complete list of black invention myths.

        • Morris LeChat

          link doesn’t work

          • Romulus

            I either typed it wrong, or the link you provided is the right one. I printed out many copies of that invaluable information and sent it out to friends. Who knows how long we’ll be able to access the net for our benefit. Not a few libraries are consolidating or getting their butts kicked by electronic media. The left might even start having book bar-b-cues again.

          • Morris LeChat

            I save things and burn them to disks.

    • sbuffalonative

      Is Stephen Hawkins still looking for one or has he given up the search?

    • watling

      Chess is a good measure of intelligence. There are no ethnic African players in the world top 100 chess players.

      The highest placed ethnic African is American Maurice Ashley who is ranked 1739 in the world.

    • Erasmus

      All 7 of them?

  • Lost in all this hoopla is this all important question:

    Is what he said true or not?

    And also, props to those of you who were advising us not to trust the UKIP further than we could spit. Then again, I never thought the UKIP was anything more than an interim solution until real British white nationalism could be developed.

    • brengunn

      They are already at the margins of what is deemed acceptable in modern Britain even though they make no racial statements that could be considered realist. They are just suspected of holding realist opinions. They are most likely a flash in the pan.The thought that an openly racially aware party are on the horizon in Britain is fantasy.

    • sbuffalonative

      Yes, this causes me to question Mr. Farage and the UKIP.

      Is he trying to curry favor by proving he’s not a racist? If so, this won’t do him good either way.

      The left won’t believe it and the right won’t forgive him for not standing up to the truth.

      If in doubt, say nothing.

      • Xerxes22

        Nigel Farage is the British version of Rand Paul. Both are destined to be losers.

    • Mr Potato

      That’s right, is the man right or is he wrong?

      Maybe we’ll never know eh? Hahaha!

  • Puggg

    “RePUGnant”

    I beg your pardon.

    • So CAL Snowman

      These animalists and their bigotry.

  • BonusGift

    It seems that Nigel isn’t exactly free of the cultural Marxists and might want to change the name of the group from ‘euroskeptics’ to “not so skeptical eurocrats” while the Italian truth teller should be lauded. The Borghezio money lines:

    (1) “‘Africa hasn’t produced great geniuses as anyone can see from a Mickey Mouse encyclopaedia.'”
    2) “‘Claimed Mr. Farage wanted him out of the group because he had annoyed the UKIP leader’s ‘powerful friends in the City of London.’” American translation, the tribe won’t allow a Europe made up of Europeans, only Israel is allowed.

    Bottom line, Farage wouldn’t get MSM coverage here or in Europe if he was a threat to the primary cultural Marxist goal of genociding Christian Europeans.

    • evilsandmich

      I like Farages rants, but there’s enough noise out there branding him as a phoney that it gives me pause for thought.

    • RisingReich

      Up until this recent quote I was also thinking Farage might have been seeing things for the real.

      Apparently he has much more awakening to do.

      • sbuffalonative

        One has to wonder why he felt compelled to denounce these comments so fervently.

        Another false prophet with feet of clay.

  • jeffaral

    The UKIP is a big fraud: they favor more immigration and the parasitic City of london.

    • sbuffalonative

      From the few articles that have filtered into the US, I thought the UKIP was a glimmer of hope. Yet another dead end or worse. Maybe a government funded group to siphon votes from the BPN. That would explain what appeared to be staged protests against him.

      The only good news is that they’ve been exposed rather early.

  • Unperson

    Although Nibel Farage and UKIP are preferable to Lib/Lab/Con, this here shows why for thinkers of an AmRen persuasion they are still a poor second to Nick Griffin and the British National Party.

    What really frustrates me about Farage’s finger-wagging schoolmarm comments is that they were entirely unnecessary. Did he really think this was something worth making a big deal out of? Could he possibly believe that if he didn’t say something against Mario Borghezio, that nobody would? All Farage demonstrates with this endorsement of mindless PC groupthink is that the thinking behind his UK Independence Party isn’t nearly as “independent” as they’d like you to believe. In fact, it’s depressingly conformist and predictable: more of the same dreary, counterfactual “We are the world” sentimentality that got Europe into this multiculti catastrophe in the first place.

    • What Farage is accusing Borghezio of being, the British left is accusing Farage of being. That nasty ole what goes around.

      • IstvanIN

        And that is why Farage should keep his pie-hole shut. Cannibalizing each other does no good whatsoever.

    • sbuffalonative

      I suspect IF a proper investigation is done that the UKIP was created by someone to try to siphon votes from the BPN. I hope they’re exposed.

  • bigone4u

    I’ve noticed that Italians are often less politically correct than northern Europeans here in the USA. My Italian friends tend to be race realists. Maybe it’s the leftover influence of Mussolini or just Italian stubborness. Anyway, I love my white Italian brothers for their honesty, their food, and their women 🙂

    • Homo_Occidentalis

      Italians in general are unabashedly ethnocentric. Even from Rome’s earliest days, all cultures apart from the Greeks, Etruscans, and other Italic tribes were viewed as barbarians.

      • jane johnson

        And for us, moolies, mexis, and arabs will ALWAYS be “other”.

    • The__Bobster

      It think it’s because a lot of the Guido neighborhoods are next to Zulu hoods. Therefore, they interact a lot.

  • Stentorian_Commentator

    With friends like these . . . .

  • NYB

    This will reflect well on Mr. Farage in future elections. If UKIP can displace the old parties of Conservatives and Labour, then it makes for a more welcoming climate for British nationalists.

    Mr. Farage is not the answer for race realism, but he is helping to get rid of the leftist trash.

  • Charles W.

    Hahaha, leave it to a pisan to tell it like it is.

  • NorthernWind

    You pillock Farage! You think that doing this will somehow save your party from being labelled “racist”. Clearly power is a main ambition of his, he’s no man of the West. A man of the West cares mainly about promoting Europe and Europeans, second only to raising his family. Nick Griffin, as flawed as he is, would never do something like this. Trying to stay PC will never change anything, which is exactly what our “enemies” want.

    • Pat

      Hear what you are saying but if UKIP played the BNP role they would be shot down in seconds. I don’t like this latest ‘pronouncement’ either but at least it gives him ammunition against the ‘racist’ attacks. There’s is not a big choice out there at the moment so will continue to support. Maybe a ‘long game’ is the better option.

  • anton drexler

    According to my public school teachers, St. Augustine and Hannibal were great African geniuses. Of course, racists claim these guys were lilly white, but I know they were black because my textbooks pictured them as such, and leftist educrats would never alter the facts to make themselves look better.

    • Jerrybear

      Yes. Silly leftists rewriting history. All you have to do is look for Carthaginian coins with Hannibal’s depiction. He looks Greek. He looks very similar to depictions of Alexander the Great. It’s common knowledge that Greeks and Romans heavily colonized North Africa. Bantu Sub-Saharans were not in the region at all. Even today, North Africa is heavily Arab or Semitic. Not Negroid.

    • The__Bobster
    • Wayne

      Hannibal was Carthaginian and Carthage was a colony of Phoenicia, a Semitic race. No way negroid.
      St. Augustine was from North Africa, but it was or had been Roman territory. Naturally, the left will seize on any and all association with Africa whatsoever and paint them as sub-Saharan blacks. Egyptians included.

    • Xerxes22

      If the leftists really believed that St. Augustine and Hannibal were Black, they would not have been screaming for the Catholic Church to elect its first Black pope, since three previous popes were from North Africa.

  • The__Bobster

    In response to his dismissal, he claimed Mr Farage wanted him out of the group because he had annoyed the UKIP leader’s ‘powerful friends in the City of London.’
    ___________

    I can just imagine what those “powerful friends” look like.

    • Hunter Morrow

      Curly black hair and really big noses, yet strangely enough, not Italian. Wonder what they could be?

  • David Brims

    Why is Nigel Farage doing the Lefts work for them ? The Liberals will still see him as a ‘racist’, so there’s no point in appeasing them.

  • British politics are abysmal…

  • White Mom in WDC

    The US government is of Bonga Bonga.

  • Unperson

    This whiteknighting on behalf of Afro-Europeans will do Farage absolutely no good at the polls next election. Blacks in Britain are as monolithically and mindlessly in-the-pocket of the Labour Party as American blacks are with the Democratic Party. Blacks in Britain don’t care about pulling UK out of the EU (UKIP’s prime directive). If anything, they probably LIKE the EU since it forces more blacks on Britain; and is generally a social-welfarist “gibsmedat” organization — and blacks planet-wide just LOVE their gibsmedats!

    So it’s not even like Farage’s pandering will win UKIP so much as ONE new black voter. His outreach to England’s rioting-classes is as utterly pointless as the Republicans’ outreach to Hispanics.

    • BonusGift

      Thanks, a very insightful analysis/RINO analogy.

  • reveal1914

    Apparently freedom of expression is a strict no no, within the ” Europe of freedom and democracy group”

  • Morris LeChat

    Brits are such cowards

    • David Ashton

      Thanks again.

  • Joseph

    So much for the open and inclusive EU.

  • Paleoconn

    And now UKIP has made their way into irrelevance.
