Swiss People's Party Adopting Nazi Tactics

Switzerland's largest political pary has been accused of adopting Nazi tactics as part of their anti-crime campaign. According to The Guardian:

The party, which controls the justice ministry and is part of Switzerland's coalition, is proposing a scheme to deport immigrant families if their children are convicted of a violent crime, drug offences or benefit fraud. It claims immigrants, which make up 20% of the population, are four times more likely to commit crimes than Swiss nationals.

The party's president, Üli Maurer, claimed:

"As soon as the first 10 families and their children have been expelled from the country, then things will get better at a stroke."

'I stand with Israel!'

Not to mention a further banner that claims:

I'm a Proud Friend Of Israel

Well, at least this poster has achieved something. It has flushed out the anti-Semites and racists whose true support for the Jewish community is only for political expediency.
