CNN Worries That Muslim Migrant Gang Rape in Italy Will Bolster the ‘Far Right’: Preserving the "progressive" Narrative at Any Cost; The Gang-Rape Horror that has Reignited Italy's Immigration Row: Degrading Attack on 13-Year-Old 'by Youths Who Illegally Entered the Country as Minors' has Poured Fuel on the Flames of a Migrant Grisis

CNN Worries That Muslim Migrant Gang Rape in Italy Will Bolster the ‘Far Right’:
Preserving the "progressive" narrative at any cost.
According to the left’s moral compass, the only determining factor for whether something is right or wrong is whether it aids or hinders the leftist agenda. CNN demonstrated this anew on Sunday when its reporting about a gang rape in Italy was focused not on the horror of the crime itself, but on how those all-purpose bogeymen, the “far right,” would capitalize upon it.
CNN headlined its story this way: “An alleged gang rape shocks Italy, and provides fodder for an ascendant far right.” It was referring to an incident that took place on Jan. 30 in the Sicilian city of Catania. The Italian-language il Giornale reported on Feb. 3 that Catania was “in shock over what happened to a thirteen-year-old girl, raped by a gang of seven Egyptian boys in the municipal gardens of Villa Bellini, one of the two oldest gardens in the Sicilian city.” Three of the Egyptians were minors.
The girl “and her seventeen-year-old boyfriend were approached by the pack near the bathrooms of the municipal garden of Villa Bellini, at that hour almost deserted. At a later time, the foreigners threatened the couple: while the boy was beaten, immobilized and kept away, the thirteen-year-old was raped by two of the suspects while the other five looked on. Panicked and in pain, after the second abuse the young woman found the strength to free herself from her tormentor and escape with her boyfriend.” This appalling has shaken the entire nation of Italy and has become the linchpin for a national discussion about mass Muslim migration into the country.
As far as CNN is concerned, that’s the problem. Its Sunday report asserted that the gang rape “has become not only a symbol of violence against women in the country but a cause célèbre for Italy’s far-right government.” The crime “was soon seized upon as evidence that migrants should be blocked from entering the country.” In Italy, it seems, the right-wing “seizes”; in the U.S., Republicans “pounce.”
CNN noted that the accused gang rapists “entered Italy by boat in 2021 and 2022 as unaccompanied minors, according to Catania police. Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, one of the country’s most visible far-right figures, said on X that they should not have been allowed to stay.” Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, meanwhile, “expressed her solidarity with the alleged rape victim and her family.”
This being CNN, we’re told that the real story here is not the heinous gang rape of a thirteen-year-old girl, but (you guessed it) racism: “the ways in which the cases between those with Italian suspects and those with Egyptian suspects are being handled are already drawing scrutiny.” This was because the Egyptians “have been granted fast-track trials, their lawyers told CNN, which means they will be held behind closed doors and sealed.” --->READ MORE HERE
The gang-rape horror that has reignited Italy's immigration row: Degrading attack on 13-year-old 'by youths who illegally entered the country as minors' has poured fuel on the flames of a migrant crisis:
News of the heinous attack prompted immediate fury among Italian officials
'I beg you, I beg you, don't hurt me... Please let me go.'
Those were the words uttered by a helpless 13-year-old girl as she was allegedly dragged into a public bathroom by a group of Egyptian migrants in Catania on the Italian island of Sicily last week.
Her pleas were ignored.
Instead, she claims two of the migrants - both minors - brutally raped her for half an hour while the rest of the gang allegedly restrained her desperate boyfriend and forced him to watch the horror unfold.
All seven of the suspects arrived in Italy as illegal migrants by boat, but were granted temporary residency as Italian law does not permit the expulsion of minors.
News of the heinous attack prompted immediate fury, with Italy's Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini calling for the perpetrators to be chemically castrated and Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni vowing 'justice will be done'.
The gang in question has since been shackled after DNA testing confirmed at least one minor had sexually abused the girl, and only because the eldest of the group was so disturbed by the actions of his underlings that he confessed to authorities.
But the horrendous incident has also sparked a fresh row over immigration policy in Italy, which saw a 50% increase in illegal migrant landings last year versus 2022 according to the Interior Ministry.
A select few individuals came out in defence of the perpetrators in the wake of the attack.
Catania bishop Luigi Renna was quick to warn against the profiling of migrants for violent crimes, declaring: 'The crime committed by these young immigrants must not lead us to generalisations, because we know that not all immigrants are violent, just as not all young Italians are violent.'
And immigration workers who knew two of the older teens involved in the incident told Italian media the boys had made efforts to integrate with Italian society and were pursuing work permits at the time of the attack. --->READ MORE HERE
