IIRC the SVP in Wohlen were the ones that came up with the classy naked lady posters

Re: SVP at it again ( this time against Serbs and Turks )

I stumbled upon this peculiar website recently and I couldn't believe my eyes. Is it a joke or should someone ahem... 'shoot' him before it's too late?
Is this even legal? I understand if it's not for real but this is so wrong. ME IS SCARED.

And this is shocking how? Even in one of the recent threads, someone was saying how slavic speaking teens were the ones dumping trash and such. I am completely underwhelmed by the scandal.
My normally pristene majority-Turkish neighborhood has a problem with Swiss-speaking teens eating döner on a Saturday night on a bench which is located adjacent to a RUBBISH bin. Yet somehow, in the morning, when you walk past, there's foil and döner wrappers all over the ground that never made it in. Perplexing.

It's satire. But don't tell SVP Wilen. They might even make a donation.

Well, don't want to go into semantics, but one of the posters mentions Yugos. Your thread title is misleading as Serbs are just a subsection of that group.

Everyone picks on the serbs
Isn't saying 'Yugo' the same as saying 'Pakky' or 'N*gger', don't these racist terms demean us all?

Anyway one individuals 'damn Mexicans' is another individuals exotic stranger, racism is just completely irrational.

I used to work with a relatively dark-skinned Algerian who was a card-carrying SVP member.

I don't think they mind ethnicity as such, but it's the changes caused by immigration they don't like.

Who will do the job of the Serbs and the Turks if they were not there? The Swiss?

Re: SVP at it again ( this time against Serbs and Turks )

The Turks in Basel own many shops with late opening hours and they are always full of people. Turks are hard working people who believe any job are good to get money from. That is also why they have no shame to do "smaller" jobs. So, who would do it if they were not there?

For exemple, in Germany, who are the cleaning personals in hotels?

No one takes the job of others, they take jobs that others don't want I do.

So what is the solution of SVP regarding these jobs?

Strange ... looks like you dont have all these


An ethnic group (or ethnicity) is a group of people whose members identify with each other, through a common heritage, often consisting of a common language, a common culture (often including a shared religion) and/or an ideology that stresses common ancestry or endogamy.[

A few years ago we visited the ski resort of Steamboat Colorado. The Republicans there had had a real 'clean up' of illegal immigrants and were very very pleased with themselves. Big grins all round. Then it suddently dawned on them that they didn't have anybody to tend the fields, pick the crops, clean the hotels and wo/man the restaurants and ski lifts, etc.
DUHHHHHHHH.

That's the same debate in the US. All of the people that want to get rid of the illegal aliens but none of them want to do the jobs that they're doing for the same low wages.

So in other words, we need illegality, because as soon as they become legal they stop doing those jobs?

The Italians.
And the Tyroleans ans Swabians before them
And the Swiss from poor cantons before them.
And the local poor before them.
And before them, everybody except the merchants and the nobility was poor and couldn't afford to hire anyone to do anything.
And before that, the Romans (con't p. 94)

No, most working immigrants are quite legal in Switzerland. In the U.S., legal immigrants tend to ask for the minimum wage however.
