Hurray, Helvetia – Swiss OK With Insults To Erdogan!
Just got back from a walkabout, feeling slightly sorry for President Donald Trump, who is having to spend a great deal of time in the undoubtedly disagreeable company of the Bitch of Berlin this weekend.
I wonder if she’ll lecture him on his legal ‘obligation’ to import crimmigrants, after her own irresponsible admission of around a million with no regard for German visa regulations. New Book Exposes Merkel As More Coward Than Traitor!
On another ‘enemy alien’ issue, given Americans’ constitutional right to free speech, one hopes she won’t seek to persuade him to follow her craven example on censorship.
And THAT leads me onto today’s ‘reasons to be cheerful’ headline….
stamp-collectors will know that ‘Helvetia’ is the agreed name of multilingual Switzerland
…how the relatively small Swiss Confederation has been showing so much more true grit than the forsworn leader of their mighty German neighbour!
The Swiss justice office has refused four requests by Turkey for judicial cooperation over comments posted on social media platforms about President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that he deemed offensive.
Most of us are sick and tired of the intolerant whining of one ignorant Islamist after another about how ‘offended’ they get when civilised people write or draw or say things that aren’t permissible under their backward codes.
Sure, they can belly-ache as much as they like, but when they set out to intimidate, they need to be slapped down HARD!
No doubt you were no more aware than I was that the sectarian regime in Ankara has been demanding that Switzerland pursue critics who had ‘insulted’ Erdogan.
Heck, that man deserves a lot more four little insults – I’m sure our modest blog has long since passed that total!
But whatever – the Head of Information at the Swiss Justice Office, Folco Galli, neatly put the Turks in their place, saying that Switzerland would only be obliged to cooperate if the act concerned was considered a crime in both Turkey and Switzerland!
The viper can dish it out – as when he called the Dutch of being ‘Nazis’ last week.
