“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Horror of Horrors. The Swiss are Protecting Their Country.

At the end of 2006, 5,888 people were interned in Swiss prisons. 31 per cent were Swiss citizens – 69 per cent were foreigners or asylum-seekers.

This is a story that the Independent sees as sinister. I see it as a return to common sense. The Swiss are sick of immigrants committing a disproportionate amount of crime in Switzerland. They see too many Muslims as a threat to their culture and do not want to see minarets on mosques fouling the Swiss skylines. Lastly, they want families of terrorists and social miscreants deported along with the convicted offenders. It all seems sensible to me, but the Independent is worried that national survival skills will transfer to other EU countries. How awful that would be.

Switzerland: Europe's heart of darkness?

Switzerland is known as a haven of peace and neutrality. But today it is home to a new extremism that has alarmed the United Nations. Proposals for draconian new laws that target the country's immigrants have been condemned as unjust and racist. A poster campaign, the work of its leading political party, is decried as xenophobic. Has Switzerland become Europe's heart of darkness? By Paul Vallely

Published: 07 September 2007
At first sight, the poster looks like an innocent children's cartoon. Three white sheep stand beside a black sheep. The drawing makes it looks as though the animals are smiling. But then you notice that the three white beasts are standing on the Swiss flag. One of the white sheep is kicking the black one off the flag, with a crafty flick of its back legs.

The poster is, according to the United Nations, the sinister symbol of the rise of a new racism and xenophobia in the heart of one of the world's oldest independent democracies.

A worrying new extremism is on the rise. For the poster – which bears the slogan "For More Security" – is not the work of a fringe neo-Nazi group. It has been conceived – and plastered on to billboards, into newspapers and posted to every home in a direct mailshot – by the Swiss People's Party (the Schweizerische Volkspartei or SVP) which has the largest number of seats in the Swiss parliament and is a member of the country's coalition government.
the rest here


  1. Heather MacDonald on the insanity of sanctuary policies and immigration politics.

    The Swiss are smart to act now, but it may be too late and they may not be able to resist the EU and the international human rights movement.

    One world, my friends, open borders, imagine if you can.

  2. From the MacDonald article:
    Immigration politics have similarly harmed New York. Former mayor Rudolph Giuliani sued all the way up to the Supreme Court to defend the city’s sanctuary policy against a 1996 federal law decreeing that cities could not prohibit their employees from cooperating with the INS. Oh yeah? said Giuliani; just watch me. The INS, he claimed, with what turned out to be grotesque irony, only aims to “terrorize people.” Though he lost in court, he remained defiant to the end. On September 5, 2001, his handpicked charter-revision committee ruled that New York could still require that its employees keep immigration information confidential to preserve trust between immigrants and government. Six days later, several visa-overstayers participated in the most devastating attack on the city and the country in history.

    New York conveniently forgot the 1996 federal ban on sanctuary laws until a gang of five Mexicans—four of them illegal—abducted and brutally raped a 42-year-old mother of two near some railroad tracks in Queens. The NYPD had already arrested three of the illegal aliens numerous times for such crimes as assault, attempted robbery, criminal trespass, illegal gun possession, and drug offenses. The department had never notified the INS.

    Giuliani blames the Federals for not enforcing immigration laws, that is for not deporting criminal aliens but his quote that the INS exists to "terrorize people" and his law suit to the Supremes may be more revealing.

  3. Henin defends Belgian Pride:
    What long standing Anger Can do to Good Judgement!

    “I think she made a lot of lucky shots and I made a lot of errors,” Williams, the eighth seeded player, said during her postmatch news conference.
    Tennis must be one of the greatest equalizers. This twig of a thing Henin has Vanessa's number, has never been beaten, and this week defeated her again as well as her sister Venus!
    She also finished off the Ruskie.

    (a very fast and well-conditioned twig, I must admit.)

  4. Whit:
    Maybe us conservatives will again elect our darling, only to end up hating him as much as W

  5. The Political Perils of Targeting Immigrants

    Kimberley Strassel repeats the WSJ dogma, paying no heed whatsoever to right or wrong, lawbreaking, domestic violence and chaos, the very essentials of our cultural heritage, or any other impediments to "better business" and higher profits.

    I'll never get the video out of my head of all those fat little pigs sitting around the WSJ editorial board table, discussing the hopeless backwardsness, ignorance, and disgusting Xenophobia of all us Rubes out here in Flyover Country.

    ...including Steven Moore and John Fund, I might add.

  6. We elected W because we had no one else. He was our best chance, our only hope, therefore we rallied round and hoped for the best. I don't know many people who still support W. It's amazing, everyone is just ready for his term to be over.

    Republican response to the parties candidates can be described as tepid. The campaign season began way too early. No one wants to commit yet and the candidates are dull. That's why Fred Thompson's numbers are so high and he just announced this week.

    As far as Giuliani and politics, I've gotten to the point where I trust NO ONE.

  7. Mexicanos Sin Fronteras (Mexicans Without Borders)

    Seeing to it that local communities are kept from protecting themselves when the Feds refuses to do it's job.

  8. Heather MacDonald's article gave me an idea. She wrote that the wave of illegals has so totally overwhelmed the Feds that they are virtually impotent to do anything about the problem. McCain and others said the same during the recent brouhaha.

    So, in the future, not liking the direction our country is headed and being unable to affect change in DC and as a last resort, what would the effect be if 10 or 12 million taxpayers refused to file income tax returns?

  9. Fairness means protecting the "Rights" of the invading Hordes:
    Appeals Court Finds Ugly Implications in City's Anti-Truck Law: Class, Not Aesthetics, May Be Real Issue, Judges Suggest in Overturning Code
    The central question in the ticket case has become:
    Are the city ordinances targeting pickup trucks, or are they, more sinisterly, trying to exclude the people who drive them?
    (BOTH, FUCKERS! Give us back our Country!)
    September 4, 2007
    (Washington Post)

  10. " She wrote that the wave of illegals has so totally overwhelmed the Feds"
    That one is SO BOGUS!

    The TRUTH is, the Feds are totally UNWILLING to take the take el Toro by the Horns like Ike did in Operation Wetback, and solve the GD Problem!
    cuento camelo,
    agarrar al toro por los cuernos

  11. ...or like Newt said, Fedex em all a package, and track em down on our home computers!

  12. "Americanos Without Patience!"

    (and outraged by the suicidal "compassion," and "tolerance" of DhimmiNation)

  13. The feds do not have to go after illegal immigrants, they need only prosecute the employers who hire them.

  14. Too easy slow,
    But now more difficult since the 9th district has enjoined the feds from sending employers letters with non-matching Social Security Numbers.

  15. Slow:
    MacDonald's take on the employer facet:
    For illegal workers and employers, there is no downside to the employment charade. If immigration officials ever do try to conduct an industry-wide investigation—which will at least net the illegal employees, if not the employers—local congressmen will almost certainly head it off. An INS inquiry into the Vidalia-onion industry in Georgia was not only aborted by Georgia’s congressional delegation; it actually resulted in a local amnesty for the growers’ illegal workforce. The downside to complying with the spirit of the employment law, on the other hand, is considerable. Ethnic advocacy groups are ready to picket employers who dismiss illegal workers, and employers understandably fear being undercut by less scrupulous competitors.

  16. Re: the Georgia onion industry story. INS cracked down just as the crop was ready to come out of the fields.

    Advance notice to employers is in order. Give them time to adjust their work forces before disrupting whole industries.

  17. The Mexican trucks are rolling north. Further busting up the Teamsters.
    The Chinese ships, they be heading south, busting up the Longshoremen.

    The historic political defenders of the Unions, collecting cash from Mr Hsu, Buddhist monks and other representitives of foreign interests.

    The IBEC cultural modification model is going forward in Mexico, and the United States. Variations on a central theme. Both sides against the middle, but on a set-in course more ingrained in US culture than can be immediately remedied.

    We just have to open our minds to the opportunities of the reality of the current situation, to paraphrase what Mr Bush said.

    Rudy's current rhetorical solution is the correct one.
    Close the border to further infiltrations, cull the migrant population for miscreants, putting the remainder on a path to legalization. Regularize their status, which does not require US citizenship, but does demand the realization that their labor is an intergrated part of the cuurent economy, especially after twenty years of acquiescence to their presence.

    As to your quote of nahncee in the last thread, doug. She explains Osama's justification for 9-11-01, via the application of the Goose and Gander Standard for reactive action.
    After years of US presence and interference in mussulman lands, they showed US. Totally justifiable by the nahncee "We'll show them" Standard.

    As mat tells US, we already have invaded Iran, started when we rolled to Baghdad, so their current IED response, there, is justifiable self-defense. By mat's Standard of Regional Sectarian Nationhood

    Spurs that jingo jangle jingoists.

  18. The US, of course, as always, wearing the "White Hat".

    Wielding authority, denying responsibility.
    At home and abroad.

  19. A slow hand: The feds do not have to go after illegal immigrants, they need only prosecute the employers who hire them.

    They will not, as long as those same employers shell out for political campaign war-chests. The only way to stop all this crap is public financing of all election campaigns, with no corrupting outside money permitted at all. Of course, the same politicians are dragging their feet on this by claiming that giving money is Constitutionally-protected political "speech". And it's mostly the conservatives who enable them.

  20. Has little to do with "Campaign funds" Ms T.

    That is just the current method of dispersal. Realitivly above board.

    The idea that by Federalizing campaign funding the corruption of the system or souls would end, humorous.

    The money would continue to flow to the corruptable, the weak and morally broken.

    Instead of bundling contibutions, Mr Hsu would have been bundling Ben Franklin notes into suitcases, or wiring the money to Cayman, Swiss or Panamanian accounts.

    Freedom and liberty should not to be trusted to the Federals to regulate and control. They are inept, feckless, demi-gods with feet of clay.

    Less centralization, not more, is the solution.

  21. Whit,
    Domestic US Politics, and Georgia Politics has changed considerably since the Vidalia Onion Incident!

    ...see W's "See you at the Signing" non-event!

    Or listen to the once-silent Pubs "play to the base" (majority of the population) with the "xenophobic exclusionism!"

  22. SUCKS not to be All-Powerful America!
    Cool that we are so technologically overpowering that we can be even MORE confident now, than at the outset of OIF!

    The technology of regime change is changing very rapidly. Armed drones that are indistinguishable from flying hornets should make decapitation strikes routine. Self-assembling nanotech weapons that fly into a palace or assembly, disguise themselves as part of the furniture, then move in for the attack with perfect stealth--these weapons change the calculus.

    Not to mention changes in energy technology that could take the wind out of the sails of the great petroleum powers as quickly as within the next ten years. Iran is a stone-age civilisation. It cannot adapt to the rapid changes that are coming.

    The target selections have already been done. 1,200 targets in all.

  25. the night of the long knives is coming..

    I think eurabia will happen 1st..

    Will it appear in the good ole USA, not sure...

    Eurabia is such a non-melting pot that the "others" (in this case the islamic populations ((be it turks in germany or north africans in france) stand out like a sore self imposed thumb...

    In the usa we have all peoples, of all hue and color and all faiths (of lack thereof), i dont see it happening here so easily.

    Now back to Eurarabia...

    Eurarabia has a history of butchery, there was no problem for Stalin to murder millions, hitler to gas, shoot and murder millions, the English? Spanish? French? all quite adapt at murder of civilians...

    What the islamic hoards do not know (what I DO KNOW) is that the Europeans (russians included) have seen the threats from the south come before and are, well quite smart, ruthless and deadly at liquidating anyone, thing or institution that they deem deadly to their being...

    For 60 years, Europe has had a rightful guilt for their mass murder of the jews, and for all too long they have gone overboard, in some perverse semitic outreach, to the ARABs and Islam as to prove they do like some semitic peoples. Since they have already murdered or driven out the jews of europe (that had been there for 2000 years peacefully) a vacuum had occurred.

    Now Eurarabia is overrun with burkas, hijabs, honor killings, crime, welfare theft and mosques...

    I do predict a reaction is brewing, and I am so glad my jewish ass aint there.....

  26. "flying hornets should make decapitation strikes routine. Self-assembling nanotech weapons that fly into a palace or assembly, disguise themselves as part of the furniture, then move in for the attack with perfect stealth--these weapons change the calculus."
    Soon, 13 yr olds, playing combat with their Wii Wii's, will eliminate oppression from the face of the globe!

  29. Horror of horrors, the Swiss are burying their dead. Or a light shines in the darkness.

    An Alpine Idyll
    by Ernie Hemingway

    (after four pages of describing the spring skiing, and how they passed a funeral in the village, with a grumpy priest officiating, they are drinking at an inn)

    "Won't you have a drink with us?" I asked the innkeeper. He sat down. "Those peasants are beasts," he said.
    "We saw that one at a funeral coming into town."
    "That was his wife."
    "He's a beast. All the peasants are beasts."
    "How do you mean?"
    "You wouldn't believe it. You wouldn't believe what just happened about that one."
    "Tell me."
    "You wouldn't believe it." The innkeeper spoke to the sexton. "
    Franz, come over here." The sexton came, bringing his little bottle of wine and his glass.
    "The gentlemen are just come down from the Wiesbadenerhitte," the innkeeper said. We shook hands.
    "What will you drink," I asked.
    "Nothing," Franz shook his finger.
    "Another quarter litre?"
    "All right."
    "Do you understand dialect?" the innkeeper asked.
    "What's it all about?" John asked.
    "He's going to tell us about the peasant we saw filling the grave, coming into town."
    "I can't understand it, anyway," John said. "It goes too fast for me."
    "That peasant," the innkeeper said, "today he brought his wife in to be buried. She died last November."
    "December," said the sexton.
    "That makes nothing. She died last December then, and he notified the commune."
    "December eighteenth," said the sexton.
    "Anyway, he couldn't bring her over to be buried until the snow was gone."
    "He lives on the other side of the Paznaun," said the sexton. "But he belongs to this parish."
    "He couldn't bring her out at all?" I asked.
    "No. He can only come, from where he lives, on skis until the snow melts. So today he brought her in to be buried and the priest, when he looked at her face, didn't want to bury her. You go and tell it," he said to the sexton. "Speak German, not dialect."
    "It was very funny with the priest," said the sexton. "In the report to the commune she died of heart trouble. We knew she had heart trouble here. She used to faint in church sometimes. She did not come for a long time. She wasn't strong to climb. When the priest uncovered her face he asked Olz, 'Did your wife suffer much?' "No,' said Olz. 'When I came in the house she was dead across the bed.'
    "The priest looked at her again. He didn't like it.
    "'How did her face get that way?'
    " 'I don't know,' Olz said.
    " 'You'd better find out,' the priest said, and put the blanket back. Olz didn't say anything. The priest looked at him. Olz looked back at the priest. 'You want to know?'
    " 'I must know,' the priest said."
    "This is where it's good," the innkeeper said. "Listen to this. Go on Franz."
    " 'Well,' said Olz, 'when she died I made the report to the commune and I put her in the shed across the top of the big wood. When I started to used the big wood she was stiff and I put her up against the wall. Her mouth was open and when I came into the shed at night to cut up the big wood, I hung the lantern from it.'
    "Why did you do that?' asked the priest.
    " 'I don't know,' said Olz.
    " 'Did you do that many times?'
    " 'Every time I went to work in the shed at night.'
    " 'It was very wrong.' said the priest. 'Did you love your wife?'
    " 'Ja, I loved her,' siad Olz. 'I loved her fine.' "
    "Did you understand it all?' asked the innkeeper. "you understand it all about his wife?"
    "I heard it."
    "How about eating?" John asked.
    "You order," I said. 'Do you think it's true?" I asked the innkeeper.
    "Sure it's true," he said. "Those peasants are beasts."
    "Where did he go now?"
    "He's gone to drink at my colleague's, the Lowen."
    "He didn't want to drink with me," said the sexton.
    "He didn't want to drink with me, after he knew about his wife," said the innkeeper.
    "Say," said John, "How about eating?"
    "All right," I said.

  32. DR

    war is coming...

    we dont have to like it, or actually promote it, it will come

    the islamic hoards have settled like 5th columns into the world's communities..

    at the same time the islamic whores, opps, did i say whores? I meant ho's, ok, hoards have ethnicaly cleansed 99% of all dhimmis out of their lands... they have have gained countries (paki-stan comes to mind) carved out to appease them..

    gaza comes to mind as well...

    Never mind if you think we have pissed off the arabs or not... they started this war, pick your timeline...

    I'll start when Ishmael picked on my great great great great grandfather..

    you can start in medina in 640?

    or the invasion of europe in the 1683...

    or 1783 when the islamic camel humpers declared war on the nacsent USA..

    or whenever...

    they are on the warpath...

    they do not seek compromise and live and let live..

    remember 900,000 jews were thrown out of the hitler supporting arab nations after ww2...

    we are still fighting that too...

  33. We all need to contribute to "their ability to participate."

    San Francisco to print up ID cards for everybody

    What we need to do is cut off federal monies from cities that do this shit.

  34. Is that from the Scandanavian James Joyce, AlBob?

  35. The concept that the US will start the war, unilaterally

    Then stop it the same way.

    Funny, if it were not so sad. That they actually, truthfully, believe it.

    War without costs, when all we've fought of late, border bandits and a sandbox bully.

    The war against the border bandits, not gone well.
    CIA agent says we're letting Bin Laden win

    Mark Steyn echos the sentitment
    No terrorism, just war?

    While Thomas H. Kean and Lee H. Hamilton say:
    Outside our borders, however, the threat of failure looms. We face a rising tide of radicalization and rage in the Muslim world -- a trend to which our own actions have contributed. The enduring threat is not Osama bin Laden but young Muslims with no jobs and no hope, who are angry with their own governments and increasingly see the United States as an enemy of Islam.

    Four years ago, then-Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld famously asked his advisers: "Are we capturing, killing or deterring and dissuading more terrorists every day than the madrassas and the radical clerics are recruiting, training and deploying against us?"

    The answer is no.

    U.S. foreign policy has not stemmed the rising tide of extremism in the Muslim world. In July 2004, the 9/11 commission recommended putting foreign policy at the center of our counterterrorism efforts. Instead, we have lost ground.

    But that is all just pessimistic clatter-trap.

    Do not worry, be happy.
    The oceans will protect US.
    We can party, like it's 1999.
    Shop and be happy.

    Do not worry that, as Mr Scheuer says:
    ... The moral cowards governing us today have handed Afghanistan to Bin Laden. Instead of sending a half-million troops to that country, sealing its border with Pakistan, annihilating anyone who fought us, and then coming home, President Bush listened to then-CIA director George Tenet's promise that bribery and a few CIA and U.S.Special Forces officers would win the war. Tenet's recipe let about 60,000 Taliban and Al Qaeda fighters go home with their guns and missed Bin Laden at Tora Bora.

    And as for those now aspiring to the presidency, I don't hear a single voice — Democrat or Republican — claiming we should have wielded far more force there.

    As a result of this cowardice, today we are fighting a more numerous and better trained and armed foe. Meanwhile, Bin Laden and his boys sit unmolested on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, planning more attacks in America because our bipartisan elite long ago delegated America's protection to a beleaguered Third World dictator.

    On balance, Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are more threatening today than on 9/11. As the July National Intelligence Estimate reported, the core of Al Qaeda is rebuilt, aiding Iraqi and Afghan insurgents, and preparing attacks in the United States. Worse, the proliferation of Al Qaeda-inspired, homegrown groups in the West is accelerating, as we saw last week in Germany and Denmark.

    Free water and power, any day now.
    That's the ticket.

  36. Occupation:
    I liked this,

    "Islam has always divided the world into us and them with the amount of blood spilt a function only of Islam's minions' capability to do so."

  37. Whit, we probably already have 10 or 12 million folks who already refuse to file their income tax returns. They're called illegal immigrants, working here. Aren't they supposed to pay taxes too?

    Mat suggested the same tack one day. But people know the IRS carries a big stick. And most people that pay taxes have some property to protect. We need to think of something effective, that people would be willing to do without risking their financial status. But what?

  38. Free water and power--you forgot free medical care, Rat--any day now.

  39. I know a couple of folk, bob, living in homes valued at over $750,000 USD, that have not even filed for 20 years.

    The long arm of the law, grabs those that participate in the game, not those that abstain.

    One of the high living miscreants has run aground of the Feds, while I suggested departure to sunnier climes, legal experts advised paying the three years back taxes, legally due, and coming current.
    No jail time or further penalties due.

    By the way, it's closer to 20 million migrants without papers.

    Jr has been prospecting for recruits for the National Guard. He found that most of the Mexicans were not eligible, so he started working the other students at his community college.
    Now he's discovered that these Europeans are without papers, also. Ruining his preconception that Mexicans made up the illegal population, here in AZ.
    He's met an entire sub-culture of tourists that have overstayed their visas, now working and going to school, in the USA.
    Cannot join the National Guard, though.

  40. Those having an economic or financial need to join the Guard, not eligible.
    Those that qualify for the program, feel little finacial burden and no patriotic obligation.

    Jr's response to those that fretted about being shipped to Iraq and being killed or maimed, not the best salesmanship, though now he's been coached.

    His first response, "I've been there and made it back, besides, shit happens".
    Now he answers with life at college is as dangerous, on an actuarial basis as serving in the military, for the age group.

    Still not many prospects lining up, from the neighborhood.

  41. Farming's more dangerous than police work, on average, don't know how it compares with the military. Probably not as dangerous as college life though. Recent example--sorority pledge just a few days ago got drunk as a skunk at WSU, fell out the window, now in a cast in a hospital at Seattle, after an emergency flight to get her there. May be harmed for life. Couple years ago we had a similar incident, except that girl actually died. College can be dangerous if you don't think. And that's where they are supposed to teach them to think.

  42. One of positive things out of the ‘82 Lebanon war is that Israeli soldiers severing in Lebanon saw for the very first time what lower taxes and economic liberalization can do on a very personal level. When they saw that even Lebanese peasants had color television sets, VCRs, were driving Mercedes Benz automobiles, where most regular Israelis could only dream about these things, that’s when the seeds were planted for economic reforms.

    Israel’s military budget is about $10 billion USD a year. This means Israel needs to collect about $1,700 USD per citizen. I think this can easily be achieved thru tariffs only, given that most automobiles airplanes electronic goods are foreign made.

    As to the other federal government expenditures, if it was up to me, they would all be eliminated and transfered to the local authorities. Let the local authorities compete for the services they wish to provide and the citizenry they wish to attract.

  43. Right!
    You're telling me it was Israeli Soldiers that brought beheadings and Genital Mutilation to the Muslims of Lebanon, rather than vice-versa???
    "Israeli soldiers severing in Lebanon "
    ...go fly a Kike!
    ...or better, yet, make Pigs fly in Lebanon!

  44. Al-Bob:
    At this rate, we may ALL be Haremed for Life!
    Is that a good thing, or a bad thing, and should we preempt them by becoming Mormons first?

    You should write a self-help book maybe:

    "Lubricate Your way into the Brotherhood- (sic)
    Become a Mormon First!"

  45. severing old socialist preconception? :P

  46. Mormons--muzzies without the beheadings and mutilations, and forced conversions, etc. Right now I am working up a post on why we die when we do, according to the Mormons.

  48. I think Doug is just upset that I don’t approve of that Israeli pussy on base dating service which he enthusiastically endorsed several threads back. :D

  49. That would be
