Berlusconi says Maoist communists boiled babies

Sun Mar 26, 10:47 AM ET

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, fighting for re-election against a centre-left coalition which includes the hard left, said on Sunday that communists had a history of boiling babies.


"I have been accused many times of saying communists eat babies," he told a rally of his Forza Italia (Go Italy!) party.


"Go and read the black book on communism and you'll find that under Mao's China they didn't eat babies but they boiled them to fertilise the fields.


"They say we look to the past too much, but they forget that in the opposition there are three parties who proudly call themselves communists."


Berlusconi has often been accused of being obsessed with the "communist threat" in Italy, a country where during the Cold War the communist party was bigger than anywhere else in western Europe.


In the run-up to winning the 2001 election, Berlusconi said: "I can organise a conference in which I will prove communists have really eaten babies and done even worse things."


With the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union, most of the Italian Communist Party transformed itself into the Democrats of the Left, now Italy's main opposition party.


But smaller breakaway communist parties still exist. The biggest, Communist Refoundation is likely to poll 6-7 percent of the vote at the April 9-10 election, opinion polls indicate. Another, Italian Communists, may get up to 3 percent.


Polls put the centre-left bloc, led by former European Commission President Romano Prodi, 4-5 percentage points ahead of Berlusconi's centre-right.

Actually the Chinese would drown female infants with boiling water back in the day.. I read somewhere that it was happening in the rural provinces well into the twentieth century. Or they would smother them in hot ashes..
