Read here. Excerpt, emphasis added:
Kesselring notoriously characterized the Italians in racial terms, suggesting that they had “inherent” qualities as “southerners” of Europe. After the war, he stated that “the Italian soldier was not a soldier from within. It is possible that I, as a northerner of a different species, am applying the wrong standards—but the results seem to prove my point.” He wrote that Italians were “hot-blooded,” “conceited to an extent which a northerner cannot conceive,” and had “only three fashionable passions: coffee, cigarettes, and women.” He showed particular disdain for Italians from the South of Italy, stating that rural Italians were “a mass of people who, like children, could be led anywhere.” Kesselring also wrote that the Italian “species” was inferior…
The text also quotes some of Hitler’s criticisms of Italians.
If there are Italian readers who are upset with these negative opinions, and who are now gesticulating in outrage, they should consider the following hard truths.
If you behave in a contemptible manner, others will treat you with contempt. If you allow yourself to be the anvil of history, others will be the hammer. If you want respect, you must earn it.
If the Italian people, as currently constituted, have it within themselves to overcome their deficiencies then they need to do so as soon as possible. If they lack the racial character for such an undertaking, then they must submit to an absolutely ruthless regimen of eugenics, to reverse millennia of dysgenic influences. A willingness to continue as an inferior species will do nothing except prove Kesselring correct.
Of course, if Kesselring were around today, he may have some harsh words for his own German species, allowing itself to be race replaced and its women sexually humiliated by Afro-Asiatic invaders invited in by a Borreby Stasi hag (in addition to the previous influx of Turks).
However, the current decline of Germania does not absolve Italia for its own longer-standing status as one of the laughing stocks of Europe. Inferior is as inferior does. Superior is as superior does.
Superiority must be earned.
