Well that didn’t take long. The walking controversy that is Mario Balotelli was welcomed back to Italy by hoards of fans and scored 2 goals in his AC Milan debut. “Cyclone Balotelli” is back at the San Siro. Milan is back in the race for the Scudetto level on points with Inter after being 13 points behind 10 games ago. All’s well that ends well, right? Not when the Berlusconi family is involved. Paolo Berlusconi, AC Milan vice-president and the younger brother of the club’s owner and prime minister for life Silvio, became living proof that buffoonery is genetic over the weekend. He was leaving a political rally when he dropped this gem. OK, we are all off to see the family’s little n—-r. He’s a crazy head. All the young ladies are invited as well – you can even have a chance to meet the president [Silvio Berlusconi]. The Berlusconis are no strangers to idiocy or racism as seen with Silvio’s comments about President Obama soon after his election in 2008. Paolo is also the editor of il Giornale and runs corruption game as well as his brother. His specialty is false accounting of which he’s been convicted twice. One would think that wouldn’t be a big deal in Italy where cooking the books and not paying taxes is an art form. He got two jail sentences and was required to pay a 49 million Euro fine. Unsurprisingly not much was made of the remark until it was picked up by the foreign press. Don’t expect anything to be done about it. Don’t expect any remorse from Berlusconi. We’re just here to inform you that racism is still alive and thriving in Italy.
PLAYERS: Mario Balotelli
