Re: I'll just leave this here ;-)

I can't read the article because I'm a "GOD DAMN FOREIGNER"...

But every time I see those creepy SVP posters, all I can think of are Nazis.

That would not make sense now, would it.

BTW: The link is satire: For example the sentence "Stop mass-immigration" underneath the black shoes has been replaced by "shop for quality shoes" or "stop mass-mental enfeeblement".

I just need to double-check which wording is on the SVP sign at the entrance to my village and then I'll place an order!

Re: I'll just leave this here ;-)

I think this will be very popular with expats once they understand the German text. "Halts Maul, Schweiz" means (according to Google) "Shut up, Switzerland."

You pass a nice one on the way from Klusplatz to Kunsthaus on the Tram 3.

Instead of "Schweizer wählen SVP" ("Swiss vote SVP") it now says "Schweine wählen SVP" ("Pigs vote SVP")

I'm tempted to go out and deface all the SP and Green party posters now. Just out of spite.
I frigging hate bleeding heart socialists and hippies.

Re: I'll just leave this here ;-)

keep thinking about writing "to late, we're already here" under those posters..there are loads of them on the way to work.. though they seem to be drowned out by loads of hastily thrown up ones of people who look like you wouldn't trust them with children..so I presume there must be some kind of pointless Swiss voting thing soon.

But you've got to admit those posters are more entertaining than just a mindless daub of paint over the existing posters.

Re: I'll just leave this here ;-)

I was hoping that those controversial SVP posters would inspire the other parties to become more creative about their own campaigns. But I haven`t noticed anything comparable to it.

The SP has done quite a good and intelligent posters campaigns addressing REAL problems and real issues. Far more creative than the boring repetive rubbish from the SVP

If you check my posting history, most of it is frivolous and flippant rubbish, often designed to offend the easily-offended. I'm not sure where I come from is entirely relevant though.
Having said that, I still think socialists are scumbags. I'm possibly tainted by a former neighbour who called the police on us because of a Christmas Day dinner party many moons ago, who is now a leading SP politician in Fribourg. He's still a tosser.

I'm not so sure. One of the SP posters in Bern is just some geezer holding a rose. Maybe he's looking for a date?
