Northern League Uses Facebook Profile to use anti-Islam rhetoric

April 27, 2013

Milan- “To keep away the Islamists,” posted Mauro Manfredini of the Northern League about his terracotta pigs in his garden which were used instead of dwarfs. The leader of the Northern League in the Regional Council of Emilia-Romagna, published yesterday on Facebook a photo of his backyard, where there are five statues of pink pigs and he posted the caption: “To keep away the Islamists,” because Muslims do not typically eat pork. Manfredini criticized the media for picking up the story and not focusing on unemployment in the region and recent natural disasters.
