AN ITALIAN mayor has received praise after saying he will shoot ’n*****s and gypsies’ and build a pig farm next to mosques as tensions continue to rise over migration.
Joe Formaggio promised to build a pig farm next to migrants’ mosques
Italy has been one of the first destinations along migrants typical routes for months, receiving thousands of new arrivals who continue to risk their lives to cross the Mediterranean on rickety smuggler’s boats.
Speaking on La Zanzara on Radio 24, Joe Formaggio said: “Immigrants? If they send them to us, we will protect our houses. We are proud to be racists.”
More than 160,000 asylum seekers have been housed in Italy since the start of 2014

Amid possible plans to open a mosque in the city, he claimed he would open a “large farm of pigs if they open a mosque here”.
Mr Formaggio added: ”If refugees are sent here to Albettone, the barricades in Gorino will be seen as nothing.
“Here we do not want immigrants, n*****s or gypsies. They have a lower IQ: history proves it.
“And we do not want anyone to come and bother us. They risk their lives around us.”
The comments were deemed so strong that the Secretary General of the Vicenza Chamber has been forced to intervene, despite strong local support for the mayors comments.
