Far Left Journalist, Thomas Notarianni, former director of ‘PeaceReporter,’ sued the newspaper Libero, published in Milan, Italy, when, in the aftermath of the attacks in Paris, the paper ran the front page headline “Bastardi Islamici” (Muslim Bastards).
Amazing, this leftie imbecile could get his day in court even before the Muslim litigation jihadists jump in.
BI NEWS (h/t Mike F) The complaint was filed against the editor, Maurizio Belpietro, and “all the people to be considered.”
“This hatred is not only dangerous, it’s criminal,” Notarianni posted on his Facebook page. The lawsuit was filed based on Article 403 of the Italian Criminal Code — “insulting a religion by insulting people.” Anyone who publicly insults a religion, through contempt of those who profess it, shall be punished by a fine of €1,000 to €5,000. The law applies a fine ranging from €2,000 to €6,000 to anyone who offends a religious denomination through contempt of a minister.
Belpietro defended himself on Twitter, claiming to have used the term “bastards” in the sense of “illegitimate children.” Or, more precisely, he called “ignorant” the people “who do not know that bastard means illegitimate child.”
