SVP exposed in Basel
 
We went for a Sunday stroll around Basel yesterday and saw this same poster defaced in about 4 different locations (this one was outside Kannenfeldpark).

Someone needs to tell the SVP that they have an image problem :msnshock:

No. Don't tell them.

I saw the same thing on a CVP poster (and it was a woman candidate).

This reflects the political maturity of an 8-year old.

How comforting it is to know that the SVP's opponents have better arguments.

Oh, wait a minute...

They do have an image problem, unfortunately 28% of the voters disagree!

No matter what one may think about the SVP, the offense is called wanton property damage (or so I think).

I'm just fed up with all the posters no matter which party. I really do not think slapping hundreds of posters of some ugly mug will convince someone to vote or vote for a person.
And please no more junk mail.

If it was the early thirties in Munich and this was a poster for a fancy new socialist people's party would it also be wanton propety damage or excusable? What's it like to be Albanian in Switzerland? I don't know. Do you?

So the last war would have been avoided if the allies had dropped magic markers over German?

No, but I don't know how it would have helped the War effort to criticise or prosecute people who defaced the posters of the greatest evil the world has ever known.

You mean as in drawing a toothbush moustache on a guy who already has one? And in calling a man a Nazi who calls himself a Nazi? I'm sure that would have caused a lot of people to change their views.

Do you actually have any evidence that defacing posters causes people not to vote for the person?

Especially if it's a party that perpetually claims to be the underdog? Are you sure you're not doing them a favour by proving their point.

If you crossed out all the moustaches and wrote "Hippy" all over it, maybe.

Anyway, OP are you sure that these posters have been defaced and that you're not actually looking at the original, as they attempt to consolidate the Nazi vote?

Can anyone tell me the relevance of this thread? If I were to post a picture of the Virgin Mary in front of a catholic church which someone had scrawled "Bitch" across, would that form the basis of someone's argument for or against organized Christianity?

Castro - your posts are normally worth something to read, this one gets you an "E" grade partner. Now, back to your homework.

But the policies of the SVP are really similar to the Nazi party. I don't think the thread is about graffiti but that the graffiti is bang on.

If many pictures had been defaced then discussing why someone would feel strongly enough to deface them would be a valid topic of conversation, yes. It could also attract other bitches to the faith.

this thread in international affairs/politics?' It should be in jokes/funnies.... at best....

Nazi is an evocative term. I'm not sure it applies to the SVP, odious as they are.

An interesting perspective. From an ideological perspective only, what differences to you see between the SVP and the Nazi Party of, say 1929.
