    Black Sunday? Will Swiss Voters Ban Spontaneous Humour? 


    Today the voters of Switzerland have a chance to preserve their hard-won heritage of individual liberty, or vote to approve an Alpine version of the queers’ charter…

    .

    .

    ….which has now been incorporated into almost every West (but thank God not East) European body of law, muzzling citizens who could previously express their distaste for sexual perversion, but in Switzerland…

    .

    ‘…the government stresses that the new law will not hinder public debate or affect private conversations.’

    Well, that’s okay then, right?

    Wrong!

    ‘Even jokes about gays are still OK “as long as they respect human dignity”, Interior Minister Alain Berset said in a video message to voters….’   https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-51407327

    So if this latest gaystapo Great Leap Forward goes through, as polls predict it very well may, no more spontaneous humour in Switzerland!

    As the Minister makes so menacingly clear, every Swiss citizen will have to ponder carefully before sharing a little bitty witty to-and-fro with colleagues at work or drinking buddies in a bar…

    ….lest their joke may be overheard by some sticky-beak queer or leftist gaystapo informer…

    ….who decides that other people’s humour does not ‘respect human dignity!’

      It is exactly what you say.

      The Swiss will be less free and not only in the telling of jokes.
      We see this effect in many other countries and as the English say, you give one inch and they will take the mile.
      Already the ‘LBGT’ extremist leaders want to start new steps to include ‘transgenders’ and that is very bad for society. In English language countries people are now punished for calling a she-man a she.
      Madness I think.

      I read in the news that most votes will be for the ‘queer charter’ as you call it and if that is true I feel sorry for the Swiss growing up today.
      They will never be as free as we are till now.

      How foolish of Swiss voters if they pass this anti-free speech law.
      You capture the essential point, that people will have to think about the consequences if they make a joke, and even more if they say what most normal people think about homosexuality, that it is self-evidently abnormal and sick.

    Amnesty ‘Only’ Use Tax-Payers’ Money For Propaganda? 


    While Giorgia Meloni is a great girl…A Violent Red Nazi Assault On A Lovely Patriot Lady! …Matteo Salvini is one of the good guys in Italy, a more reliable man than his other coalition partner Berlusconi.

    But I must say I think he’s wasting his time offering to talk to his country’s Enemy Within.

    Salvini asks to meet Amnesty

    http://www.ansa.it/english/news/politics/2018/02/22/salvini-asks-to-meet-amnesty-

    Turning the other cheek is not a virtue I rate highly, and after the politically partisan ‘charity’ Amnesty International viciously attacked his Lega party, claiming that Italy was steeped in xenophobia and racism and 50% of Internet hate speech came from… where?

    =

    Salvini’s party!

    Of course, Italy is NOT by any means the only country subjected to this far-left clique’s election meddling.

    ==========

    Trump’s campaign is a good example of this, Amnesty said.

    “His poisoned election campaign was the example of a global trend that leads to anger and divisiveness.”

    Far Left fanatics have been ranting along these lines for the past year, or more.

    =

    • We know what to expect from rabid extremists like Castro-crawling Michael Moore…

    ….and CNN’s pinko propagandists, like Lemon, and Jones and Tapper.

    But the source of that drivel at the top of our page is not some clapped out Media Democrat shrill.

    It’s from a so-called charity!

     The charity number for Amnesty International UK Section Charitable Trust is 1051681. Amnesty International UK Charitable Trust

    And it’s not just Italian and American party politics into which Amnesty’s sticky-beaks intrude.

    They rant against the Fides Party government in Hungary, and the Law and Justice Party government in Poland, inevitably, but they even lecture the Dutch pro-Brussels coalition in The Netherlands!

    Other human rights issues Amnesty raised about the Netherlands specifically includes ethnic profiling by the police, temporarily keeping asylum seekers locked up in asylum centers and the introduction of a partial burka ban.

    Amnesty Int. critical of Netherlands in anti-populism report | NL Times:


    “Ethnic profiling?”
    If a significant proportion of muggings in Amsterdam turns out to be committed by fair-haired Swiss grannies, is it unreasonable for Dutch cops to watch out for them?
    =

    “They were all asylum seekers!” Told You So! 

    Or a significant proportion of those who commit another form of crime –   –  share a common and identifiable characteristic, should police ignore that fact?
    =

    =

    If illegal aliens know they risk deportation, and are thus likely to do a runner, it’s plain common sense to  keep them under lock and key.
    As for a ‘burka ban?’

    Nuff said.
    Sure, politicians can and will argue about all such issues. But a ‘charity?’

    The perpetrators of those shamelessly political outbursts collect funds by calling themselves ‘charitable?’

    More interestingly, whence come those funds?

    …we do not seek or accept money from governments or political parties for our work in documenting and campaigning against human rights abuses…

    OK! EXCEPT THAT, as we read the rest of that sentence, we learn that they don’t take tax-payers’ money or politicians’ hand-outs for that part of their ‘work’ but…

    .

    …only for our human rights education work.

    https://www.amnesty.org.uk/our-finances

    Incidentally, even the most democratic country in Europe has provoked the pro-crimmigrant charity.

    Switzerland has been taken to task by the human rights group Amnesty International for its tough treatment of asylum seekers and migrants.

    Amnesty also said concerns remained “regarding the use of disproportionate force during the deportation of migrants” while several asylum seekers had been returned to other Schengen countries under the Dublin regulation

    Switzerland’s tough stance on migrants criticized by Amnesty 

    Deportation?  

    Are the Swiss meant to just tell undesirable illegals  ‘go on home, now, pretty please.’\

    They are liars, found to have no basis for the ‘asylum’ yarns they spun, so why not kick the brutes, no messing about. At the very least, it will discourage others of their unpleasant sort from resistance to orderly expulsion.

    Returned to other Schengen countries under the Dublin regulation…?

    Even The Leftal has to acknowledge that according to EU rules enshrined in the Dublin Convention, their applications for asylum should therefore be processed in the first EU country in which they arrive…

    .

    So the crimmigrants concerned have NO grounds for complaint.

    Yet Amnesty’s arrogance does not end there. They take up a position of uppity contempt for Swiss democracy itself.

    Amnesty International also expressed concerns over a highly-controversial initiative put forward for referendum …

    So they disdain the right of Swiss to decide by democratic ballot what sort of laws they wish to live by?!

    The referendum is only ‘controversial‘ because it seeks to give Swiss law primacy over international law.

    And so it should be, at least while foreign courts impose imbecilic rulings, as they so often do.

    Definitely, Swiss can and should use their political parties to debate yes or no on that, and on any issue.

    What is absolutely outrageous is for an un-elected agitprop outfit like Amnesty to portray itself as a ‘charity’ while engaging in egregious interference in the internal politics of  Switzerland, Holland, Hungary, Poland or the United States.

    To use the adjective Amnesty uses to abuse President Trump, their rhetoric is ‘POISONOUS!’

      Between Oxfam and Amnesty, the word ‘charity’ has surely been rendered meaningless.
      The charity commissioners have plenty of evidence that there are so-called ‘charities’ which are intent on interfering in the functioning of Western countries’ democratic elections .
      By engaging in propaganda activity against Trump in America and patriotic parties in Europe, like Salvini’s, they are openly political.
      As for illegal immigrants, including violent ones like that one you have shown Oxfam supporting, charities encouraging them are not charities at all but fifth columnists. , .
