An Italian teen, identified as a 15-year-old named Simone, has gone viral globally after he stood up to right-wing protesters in his neighborhood in Italy. Video of the teen shutting down far-right arguments over a minority group blew up after it was recorded in a suburb of Rome, Torre Maura.
What caught the attention of the Media was his brave but yet polite and calm response to the leader of the protest.
When the leader of the protest claimed “We all agree here in Torre Maura, we all think the same.”
The teenager responded, “No. I don’t agree with you, I’m sure you’re an intelligent person, but what you’re doing here is exploiting the anger of the people of Torre Maura, my neighborhood. You turn this anger into votes for your interest.”
