Belen and Berlusconi

Belen and Berlusconi
In English, na srpskom

The foreign press is raving about Berlusconi’s escort scandals and his unfortunate declaration that he is the prime minister in his spare time. Sometimes, between important orgies, he finds a spare moment to meet with the Pope, UN officials, financiers and so forth.

The founder of one of the major dailies in Italy, Eugenio Scalfari, wrote that it was impossible for the scandal to continue until the formal elections in 2013. Yet at this point the Italian population seems to be beyond embarrassment.

The “If not now, when” women’ s movement has been protesting for more than six months now in mass public demonstrations. Even world pop stars like Madonna, normally not an icon of sexual rectitude, have expressed their contempt for the premier.

Analysts are dismally recording the spreading decadence and lack of democracy as Italian society sinks into ever-growing economic and moral crisis. It might be possible to serenely overlook all this, if not for the leaked wiretaps.

Berlusconi’s leaked conversations with his friend/pimp Tarantini are all over front pages. Here the premier and his bunga-bunga henchman discuss the charms of the most famous showgirl in modern Italy, the Argentinian supermodel Belen Rodriguez (a former model-spokesgirl for Italian TIM wireless internet).

Berlusconi: How is Belen?
Tarantini: My God in heaven how beautiful she has become!
B: Ah…ah…
T: l’ve seen her in good shape.
B: Check her out in my name.
T: I know, I know, I have to catch her at her ease for a second…anyway tonight we are dining together again.
B: Great! Tell her that I always admired her as a beauty, but also as a woman.
T: But you never met her personally?
B: Who, Belen? Of course I did.
T: Ok, ok.
B: I met her and she spent one night with me, but we didn’t have sex since she was the woman of my soccer player.

In another wiretapped conversation, Berlusconi boasts of bedding eight girls in one night, out of eleven paid escorts he had standing by. However, even Bluebeard has some standards: he turned down a liaison with one showgirl because of her vulgar manners.

In an hard-hitting YouTube interview, one of his hottest escorts explains the harem’s code of honor from the women’s point-of-view.

“If you are a dog, then stay at home! Beauty has its value and has to be paid. Whoever doesn’t get this, and speaks about the ‘role of women,’ should not break the balls… Every woman should run to Berlusconi’s bed…”

Italian politics has become the dysfunctional utopia of a delusional sultan. A sick dream-world where an aging premier brings young girls from his bed to the millions of the Italian TV audience, and back again. Whenever they bore him, he retires them and their relatives into the parliament or his government. This is Ottoman harem politics in a modern western guise.

The term bunga bunga, borrowed from Ghadaffi, has become the trademark for Italian gender relations. It’s claimed that every Italian man shares Berlusconi’s sexual fever-dream, but even if that’s true, only Berlusconi actually does it.

The judges in Italy, on the premier’s case ever since he was caught consorting with an underage Moroccan illegal immigrant, are relentlessly trying to criminalize his behavior. Berlusconi behaves as if he is a victim of communist persecution, avoiding all legal instances by using his legal and de facto power. He delays and denies.

Some politicians are speaking of a possible referendum to depose Berlusconi, some for asking President Napolitano to intervene with all his legal might… Some from Berlusconi’s party speak of purging the party from the inside. Yet others speculate about somehow creating an emergency national government. But nothing stops the drift toward the abyss. It is hard to build a functional state with the same crew that deliberately destroyed it.

Today he appeared in court of Milan escorted by numerous police, this time however his supporters were not around. He refused to speak to the judges, but addressed the journalists outside:
I am doing fine, while your faces are really ugly!

Belen, Berluskoni i bunga-bunga

Strana štampa zvoni na sva zvona o Belruskonijevim seks-skandalima i njegovoj nesrećnoj izjavi da dužnost predsednika vlade obavlja u slobodnom vremenu: u pauzi izmedju važnih orgija pronadje se slobodan trenutak i za susret sa Papom, UN zvaničnicima, finansijerima itd
Euđenio Skalfari, osnivač “Republike”, jednog od najtiražnijih dnevnih listova u Italiji, izjavio je da je nemoguće čekati do novih izbora 2013. ako se skandali nastave ovim tempom. Mada se već sada čini kao da su italijanski glasači i narod ostavili za sobom svaku nelagodnost u pogledu afera oko Berluskonija.
Ženski pokret “Ako ne sada, kada” već mesecima masovno protestvuje na trgovima i drugim javnim mestima. Čak i pop-zvezde kao Madona, koja ne spada u ikone seksualne čednosti, ne libe se da javno iskažu svoj prezir prema premijeru.
Analitičari sa nekim beznađem beleže širenje dekadencije i gubitak demokratije u italijanskoj državi koja propada u sve dublju moralnu i ekonomsku krizu. Moglo bi sve ovo da se i zaboravi da vesti o novim prisluškivanjima nisu procurele u javnost.
Evo snimljenog razgovora Berluskonija sa njegovim prijateljem/ podvodačem Tarantinijem; zapis je izašao na prvim stranicama svih italijanskih novina. Premijer i njegov bunga-bunga snabdevač razmatraju čari najpoznatije šou-gerle, argentinskog supermodela Belen Rodrigez (inače ikone italijanskog TIM bežičnog interneta).
Berluskoni: Kako je Belen?
Tarantini: Bože moj, kako se prolepšala
B: Ah… ah…
T: Baš je u top formi.
B: Ispipaj je malo u moje ime.
T: Znam , znam , moram opuštenu da je uhvatim, na čas… u svakom slučaju, večeras idemo opet na večeru.
B: Super! Reci joj da sam joj se uvek divio, ne samo kao lepotici već i kao ženi.
T: A ti je nikad nisi lično sreo?
B :Koga, Belen? Naravno da jesam.
T: Ok, ok.
B: Sreli smo se, i proveli jednu noć zajedno, ali nismo vodili ljubav jer je devojka mog fudbalera.
U jednom drugom snimljenom razgovoru Berluskoni se hvali kako je proveo noć sa osam od jedanaest plaćenih devojaka koje su čekale na red. Medjutim, i Plavobradi ima svoje standarde: jednu šou-gerlu je morao da odbije jer je bila isuviše vulgarna.
Jedna druga iz Berluskonijeve ekipe zabavljačica, medju najžešćim i najatraktivnijim, objašnjava u široko gledanom Jutjub intervjuu kakav je kod ponašanja u haremu, ali sa ženske tačke gledišta.
” Ako si ružna lopata, onda sedi kod kuće! Lepota ima svoju vrednost i ona se plaća. Ko to ne kapira, a onda priča o ulozi zene, bolje da zaveže… Svakoj žena činilo bi čast da potrči u Berluskonijev krevet.
Italijanska politika postala je disfunkcionalna utopija jednog pomahnitalog sultana. U svom bolesnom svetu snova stari premijer dovodi mlade devojke pravo iz kreveta na italijansku televiziju ispred milionskog gledališta. Onda kad ih se zasiti, njih ili njihove rođake ubacuje u skupštinu ili vladu. Ovo je otomanska politika harema u modernom zapadnom ruhu.
Termin bunga-bunga, preuzet od Gadafija, postao je zaštitni znak za odnos Italijana prema polovima. Tvrdi se da svaki Italijan sanja Berluskonijeve vrele snove, ali čak i da je to istina, samo je Berluskoni u stanju da ih i ostvari.
Sudije u Italiji već odavno rade na slučaju Berluskoni pokušavajući da kriminalizuju njegovo ponašanje, naročito otkad je uhvaćen u zavodjenju maloletne ilegalne useljenice iz Maroka, po imenu Rubi. Berluskoni se ponaša kao žrtva komunističkog progona, izbegava sve legalne instance koristeći svoju legalnu i de fakto moc. Poriče i odugovlači.
Neki političari govore o mogućem referendumu da bi se uklonio Berluskoni, neki umoljavaju Napoletana, predsednika Italije, da interveniše koristeći sva svoja zakonska ovlašćenja…Drugi opet članovi njegove partije razmatraju čišćenje partije iznutra, spekuliše se i o nacionalnoj vladi spasa. Ali ništa se još nije desilo što bi zaustavilo pad ka ambisu. Teško je izgraditi funkcionalnu državu sa istom ekipom koja ju je prethodno namerno razorila.
Pre neki dan pojavio se Berlskoni na sudu u Milanu u pratnji velikog broja policajaca, medjutim ovoga puta nije bilo njegovih pristalica . Odbio je da razgovara sa sudijama, ali se obratio novinarima ispred suda:
Ja sam odlično, ali vaša lica su zato baš ružna!
