Another thread heading toward 200 posts discussing SVP and an eight year old poster campaign.

The SVP are bloody brilliant at what they do.

Well they are still using the images, and the original thread is about their propaganda. They know how to get people talking about them that's for sure. Brilliant at marketing? I think they have money and know how to offend.

I saw a scary docu last night on the Beeb about the resurgence of the KKK in the southern states following the Black Lives Matter protests, I have to say those people are uneducated red neck hicks and that makes them dangerous. Thankfully the SVP are not quite that open with their Aryan ideologies, but they are educated and dangerous (at least to those living here who dont fit their desired social/racial profile).

Judging by the vehemence of your tone, one might say you are afraid to get out of your home in Switzerland.

A country with 25% foreigners is highly unlikely to nourish Aryan ideologies. But please, carry on....

What is defined as foreign in Switzerland might not be elsewhere, a white European workforce? OK I admit I exaggerated a teeny tiny bit, but it is a "dangerous precedent" to propagate these ideologies on a weak minded and fearful populace, most of their supporters are from rural areas and these people live relatively closed off lives, and don't have interactions with people of different cultures, faiths or skin colour.

Hmmm, I think your statements prove you to be either the great arbiter of weakminded and dangerous white people, or the biggest racist on this thread. Which of the two do you think have you earned?

You need to get out more. It's no longer 1950 you know. I don't think there is any inhabited place in Switzerland these days where you don't get "interactions with people of different cultures, faiths or skin colour"

Here foreign can mean several generations, even those born here but of foreign parents. Hence the lovely term Secondos.

The ridiculous thing is, you don't even have a clue about the profiles of some of the people you are interacting with. I know of a few you are accusing of white supremacy who aren't even white. This is the tragic stupidity of the racist politics you people play. You'll throw out perfectly good sense and replace it with a degenerate sentiment. This is why I think you are a bigger danger to civilization than what you accuse.

Secondos are those who haven't taken Swiss nationality - which they can - quite easily. Many choose not to in the belief they want to hold onto their history.

Across the 3 democratically elected levels (Federal, Kantonal, Community) in Switzerland the SVP are the 3rd biggest party (numbers as of 2014). Any change to the way Swizterland operates requires a referendum - and the Swiss are jolly good at making decision based on sound logical rather than rhetoric. There are numerous instances of them turning down tax cuts at one level or the other.

SVP like Switzerland the way it is/was and rather a whole bunch of foreigners didn't turn up, whinge like toddlers and demand it be changed to be more like the country they left.

If you have any complaints about the Swiss way of life and you want it to change you have 2 options:
1) (In the words of the SVP) Bugger off
2) Take Swiss citizenship - campaign for change - create a referendum - get it passed by the majority.

I can read their comments, people here can hide behind their avatars, but they are more open about their actual beliefs. I think if I met some of the people here in real life and we got to discussing their opinions on certain topics, I would turn my back on them and walk away, its simple. I don't want to associate with people with prejudices like that, I don't need them in my life. I do however love a good debate and there is nothing you can say that will make me think that SVP publication is anything other racial scaremongering.

The SVP are bloody brilliant at what they do.
Problem is, that 8 year old poster is on the front of the magazine they force-feed through our letterboxes- hence it being discussed.

And yes they are- and that is a large part of the problem. They know exactly what slogans and pictures will get to certain people- and how many will interpret it.
