Go back and read the first post in this thread where I wrote:

Not really sure that a KKK march is in the spirit of Fasnacht, especially as those taking part appeared to have neo-Nazi links.

Isn't this agreeing with what you've just written?



So who is it exactly can't get their head around this?
To be fair, Tom, there were no neo-Nazi links. As it turns out, most of the young men involved are sons of local farmers from various towns in the area. They are known for their extreme right beliefs (high on patriotism and low on tolerance of anything not Swiss). They have now also been branded as idiots for bringing "shame" to the area.

I guess if you exclude Blick then you may have a point.

Längst haben sich in der Region Szenetreffpunkte etabliert. Einer davon ist das Lokal in Brunnen SZ, in dem sich die Kapuzenmänner vor ihrem Aufmarsch zum Bier versammelt haben. Ein Zufall ist es kaum: Der Sohn des Beizers selbst pflegt Kontakte zu Blood-and-Honour-Anhängern. Auf seinem Facebook-Profil postet er widerliche Karikaturen – etwa zwei erhängte Sklaven, die mit ihren Körpern eine Hängematte für einen Mann in Ku-Klux-Klan-Kleidung bilden – oder posiert im T-Shirt mit dem Logo der Waffen-SS.

The irony of dressing as the Ku Klux Klan.....
