When in Rome…

…make ‘em kiss your ring

As the visit to Europe of the Iranian President got underway on Monday, Italy showed its respect for Islamic traditions by covering up the Capitoline Museum’s racier exhibits.

Hassan Rouhani visited the Capitoline Museums with premier Matteo Renzi, having signed contracts worth up to €17 billion ($18.4 billion) on Monday.

And Renzi was clearly keen to avoid offending his new business partner. The nude statues and sculptures in the museum were completely covered by large white boxes….

The decision to cover up nudity was seen as a mark of respect for the traditions of the Muslim country, which has only just had its trade sanctions lifted. [story]

Question: why would you even take this nude-averse jackass to a place which exhibits boobies an’ peeners, especially if the real reason he visited was prob’ly to get an eyeful’a some boobies an’ peeners for a change?
Well, I mean, besides showing how willing you are to kiss his bare ass.

(What? Yeah, I wonder if Rouhani’s wives got their butts pinched by Rome’s famous street Lotharios and, now, Muslim refugees.)

    I remember when the Bush admin did that for a speech from one of the cabinet members who didn’t want boobies in the background of his speech. They were torn apart by the media and libs. I’m sure this will be laughed at soon, right??

    His Mullah Lordship prolly measured His Holiness for a noose while he was there, and inventoried the statuary to see how many hammer wielding minions to deploy for their future destruction.
    I’m disappointed the Italian government and the Vatican even allowed the Tehran terrorist sponsor into their countries.

    Anyone reminded of the 1936 Olympics, when the French team saluted Hitler with the Nazi salute? Out of respect for their host’s traditions, dontcha know.

    Is there any end to the ass-kissery of these savages?

    Apparently the trip and the cover-up were intended to show who is in charge.

    Burkhas would have been more authentic.
