Hint: It is not the "mafia", it is most Italians.

Italian American here -- we get all the cool stereotypes. Well, Jersey Shore did a bit of damage to our reputation.

Well they aren't in the middle east, so the chances of Good 'Ol Barry doing jackshit in the "learning" department are astronomical.

I wondered how long until this happened. My next bet is countries will start paying the Mafia for protection.

Of course, the Mafia will begin kidnapping Mulims en masse, then charging to exterminate them.

Private, voluntary, law enforcement? Sounds fantastic.

Have you read the book Snowcrash? It features a kind of corporate "dystopia" with private armies hired by city-states (not actually that dystopian, IMO; I'd actually like to live in that future).

Wasn't that the roots of the Cosa Nostra, A police force of sorts? I mean, I know it got perverted over time, that's essentially what a protection racket is. Pay us to protect you or we will punish you, is essentially the system we are under now.

‘Palermo is a Middle Eastern town in Europe. It is a mosaic city and we are happy about that.' - Leoluca Orlando, mayor of Palermo

Well, in fairness, Palermo was once the capital of the emirate of sicily. It has strong links to Italy, but at various points it has also been:

  • Phoenician

  • Roman

  • Greek

  • Norman

  • Byzantine

  • Spanish

  • Arabic

And probably a few more, that's just what I remembered off the top of my head. That statement from the mayor is just historical accuracy, not necessarily him being a cuck.

Judging by the photos in the article it's an African town in Europe.

You know shit has hit the ceiling when we're now rooting for the mafia.

And the mayor is dellusional. Nationalism is on the rise all over Europe. EVEN CUCKED SWEDEN.

And it will continue to grow. Go mafia

It took so long because the migration wasn't interfering with their business. Never interfere with a man's business.

AND NEVER ASK ABOUT THE MAN'S GODDAMN BUSINESS.

we wish. Right under the headline: Cosa Nostra are fighting African gangs for supremacy on Sicily

its inter-gang warfare. Now if the mafia was rolling around shooting every immigrant that would be something else altogether.

The Mafia have always been like this. Growing up in a VERY Italian neighborhood in NYC, I was barely accepted by the community for being Polish.

These people are very protective of their space and culture. Probably a good thing. It means that they will be around while all the other inclusive morons get their culture culled out over the next few generations.

This is a really sad example if true. A random immigrant was shot, but not killed, and the shooter was caught. Either it wasn't the Mafia, or the Mafia was really sloppy. On top of that the rest of the city appears to be siding with the migrants. Disappointing to say the least.
