What do you expect from a party that hope its people follow like sheep while they butt heads like goats. Very funny!
I actually was having fun with that game, ... only that I was kicking out the white sheep ...

Now seriously... This is going way too far.

Why the Swiss are so permissive these days with racist and xenophobic campaigns, and more and more ?

Re: Are the swiss racist?

Having called around, a friend sent me this mail he wrote to the agency:

"I find your Zottel online game for the SVP in very bad taste. Congratulations for profiting from the politics of fear and hate and targeting this game towards children.

Poor show."

Good man, he!

Sounds like a call for censorship.

its the answer from the SP and its meant to be a joke.
"zottel" is the mascotte goat of the svp and "abzotteln" is a word
made out the name and means like "piss off"
the head of that kicked out svp goat is cristoph blocher,
leader of the svp and rightwing/nationalists hardliner...

Re: Are the swiss racist?

I was thinking on doing me a T-shirt with this image and be a walking protester...

Maybe we could have some dozens of T-shirts made, it could be a hit !

So sad that I beleived it was authentic, it was so in character with SVP.
How did you find the evidence that it wasn't true (apart from Abzotteln)?

Getting confused between 2 similar threads now.
In one of the threads, a newspaper article was mentioned, in it, blocher states there were no complaints, are you complaining to the wrong people?

Another way to annoy this agency btw, would be to contact their customers and let them know of the agencies dubious deeds. Nathu provides a link to their references page lower in this thread

The UN has intervened asking the Swiss government for an explanation. I don't know of any other country that has recently had to have the UN intervene, does anyone else?

Re: Are the swiss racist?

Sorry to steal the idea but I've got 2 weeks to get it made and wear it as I walk through customs. But then I will be greeted by my truly wonderful and patriotic friend waving his Swiss flags- it's a dilemma. Well it's only two sheep-huh?

Re: Are the swiss racist?

www.comboutique.com is supposedly the home of "self designed" t-shirts, I'll try and find the part where you build them...

...so, it's as easy as upload the pic, add whatever text (if required - probably not for this) - then produce that on shirts, mugs etc etc

You need to own the copyright for the pic you're going to use though - that part, I'm not sure of!
