Berlusconi 'Suffers Blow To Face'
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has reportedly been struck in the face after leaving a meeting in Milan.
He was reportedly left bleeding from the mouth. It was not clear whether the injury was caused by a punch or an object thrown by a protester.

Not a Bruno Magli shoe?
Nah. Nobody wears them ugly-ass shoes. Not anymore.
Was it someone who opposed his politics or an angry husband or father?
probably a leftwinger.
This world needs a purge of the leftists so badly.
Or a golf club...
**Nobody wears them ugly-ass shoes. Not anymore.**
Could be a form of re-gifting then? Like rendering to Caesar?

Like to see more of this when our congress critters fo home for the Christmas Break.
Specially if they force this socialist takeover of our lives./
Or an ash tray.
Na. Probably a BBC News reporter. Silvio’s lucky he didn’t get drawn and quartered.
“Blow to the face”? Somebody’s doing it wrong....
I’m watching video of the attack on FOX now.
The attacker is a 32 year old male. He may have hit him with a rock. I wonder if the attacker will turn out to be a Muslim or a leftist? He looks like he’s Italian rather than North African but who knows?
Wow, looks like they got him pretty good.
Thanks-I’ll turn on the TV.
Sorry. I can’t joke about this. It is one thing to disagree with someone and their policies. But to throw something that will cause injury is just unjustified. Remember, someone threw a tomato at Sarah Palin while she was holding her little son. Thank God it did not hit her or the baby. I didn’t think that was funny either nor did a lot of other people. It’s out of control. Call me a prude or whatever but this kind of behavior is nothing but street thugging and crude.
No, you’re right. The guy who did this is a thug. He’ll end up in jail I’m sure.
Agree but I would have no regrets if it happened to the likes of Barney Frank.
No, you’re right.
There’s only a small line between this and an assasination. Hit in the head with a rock? I’ve heard of folks dying from lesser blows.
You’re absolutely right. It’s just more evidence of the left’s tendency towards fascistic political violence.
It’s almost always leftists doing it. If they keep pushing, they will get a fair measure (and more) in return.
Just remember, one side wants everything within political power of the State and the other doesn’t (well, less so, I guess.) So when the tyrant faction acts out violently, they should be answered with their own destruction.
Yep, OJ killed that product line.
I know what you are saying and it may well come to that. But...to do this to people who are speaking or traveling to and from and unsuspecting is not right.
Wow, that is horrible. I can’t believe it was only one blow.
Oh pleazeee Raider fan would done better job LOL!
Yes, that’s a serious smash in the face. I’m betting leftwinger.
While Berlusconi’s personal life may be a bit out of control, in Italy he’s considered a conservative and the left hates him.
There is a difference between disagreeing with someones policies and revolution. Throwing stones is out of line when disagreeing. Disagreeing is not an adequate response to some of the things taking place on the world political scene. Throwing rocks is what people do when they don't have arms. Not to say this applies in this instance. Just commenting that it may be appropriate in some.
It’s TOTALLY street thugging. It’s right out of the anarchist and nazi and communist playbook. They’re going to keep right on doing it and escalating until they feel the pain of consequences. I hope the jackass gets raped to an inch of his life in a filthy Italian dungeon before he gets out. The a-hole who threw his shoes at Pres. Bush did what, about 18 months I think in an Iraqi prison. It seemed fair enough, since he missed.
So how conservative are they in Italy? I know the term is not exactly interchangeable between the united states and europe. In Canada, a mainstream conservative would be more like a progressive when compared to the U.S., like Bush jr. or McCain, rather than say Palin or Duncan.
I wonder if it was a nasty moose-slime that hit Silvio B.?
I hope the bastard rats out fellow leftist thugs involved in this crap in Italy, and hope that Italian prisoners can get some exercise on his face, etc. afterwards, while he spends the rest of his miserable life rotting in jail.
The comments are vile..people cheering him being hit.
Oh, I agree. I’m just saying that the side that wants increased State power over everyone else is the side normally engaged in this. Berlusconi is “rightist” so he is a target.
At some point, we will have to return the favor—NOT on someone just speaking their mind but on those ENGAGED in the violence. Sorry if I made it seem like I meant something else.
Brass knucles or a brick.
He’s in favor of private industry and controlling [Muslim] immigration, so that makes him a raving right wing fanatic by European standards. He’s definitely no Palin, though! So I imagine he’d be similar to a Canadian conservative.
You may need to rethink that as they start denying health care to mom and grandpa and ask you to get in the rail car.
This is serious business in Italy. Berlusconi will have the names and addresses of the perpetrator and his cadre of lefties within 48 hours. If I was one of them, I would be high tailing it for Libya or some place equally obscure.
This may be settled in the old way, which may start a wholesale escalation of political violencia in Italy.
This may not be political though. Berlusconi has a lot of enemies because of his private life.
In a perfect world I’d agree but these politicians are no better than thieves and many of them deserve much worse than a stone to the face for the evil that they do.
I dont much care what his politics are, its just a cowardly act to position yourself and blind side a 73 year old man like that. It takes a very little insignificant low life to do something like that.
I wish he would have gotten out of the car and walked over and pulverized the perp.
Sorry I guess we agree to disagree on violence when it can be avoided.
You CANNOT just toss things at people and hit them in the face or head. As for getting in a rail car...I guess I’d be taking someone with me and God help them if they begin to deny mom and granpa and any other family member health care
It’s OK...if and when the time comes when we have to return the favor...I am all for that. More than ready for that. But we have to wait until we are forced to do that then we come out and defend ourselves, our families and our properties.
No need to be sorry.
It MAY be appropriate when defending our freedoms. But to toss something at someone getting in or out of a car or signing a book ... well, it’s not my style.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery for the Prime Minister!
