The bureaucratic contempt for democracy becomes ever more apparent. This is what "human rights" means in practice: the suppression of western freedoms.
Switzerland's government needs to do much more to tackle rising racism and xenophobia, a Commissioner from the European Council on Human Rights said in a letter to the Swiss foreign ministry.

The ECHR Commissioner Thomas Hammarberg sent his strongly worded letter earlier this month to Swiss foreign minister Didier Burkhalter.

“Manifestations of racism and xenophobia appear to be on the rise in Switzerland. Disturbing political campaigns with aggressive, insulting slogans against foreigners are tendencies of great concern,” the letter read.

Hammarberg said that he recognized “the value and importance of an open political debate”, but went on to say that freedom of expression should not be absolute.

“It can and at times must be restricted by the authorities in order to safeguard the human rights and fundamental freedoms of others,” he said.

A cause for concern, the Commissioner also noted that “political discourse of xenophobic and racist nature is... not criminally sanctioned by the courts”, and he called for an overhaul of the Swiss criminal law “in order to put an end to impunity for xenophobic and racist public discourse.”

EU apparatchik: “It can and at times must be restricted by the authorities in order to safeguard the human rights and fundamental freedoms of others,” he said.

The Swiss do not need the compulsions of an unelected bureaucrat to tell them what they can or cannot do.

As for human rights, the Swiss protect themselves in all manner of ways, least of which is that all taxes, and all policies are subject to the will of the people. They dont need an apparatchik to defend their freedoms, for they protect them and themselves, with force if necessary.

Can the EU in any form or manner, come up to that standard? Not by a long way.

Switzerland is the only country in the world that can rightfully call its "The Peoples Democratic Republic of Switzerland", unlike the all the rest of totalitarian socialist despotic regimes that the EU is so fond of.

Well, that will be up to the people of Switzerland to decide, which they will by way of a referendum, if they think it is justified - which I dont believe it is.

There is far more freedom in Switzerland for people to live their lives as they decide (and not how the statists in the EU decide for them), then practically anywhere else in the world, and most certainly in the EU.

Freedom of Speech IS and MUST be absolute, if you take away one string of it the whole thing might unravel. what next, outlaw criticism of the EU??

Pedophiles like Thomas Hammarberg should stop accusing others of racism and xenophobia unless they have VERY GOOD evidence to back the latter accusation. That is, a perfectly plausible reason for not wanting excessive numbers of immigrants in one’s country is simply a desire to preserve one’s country’s culture, identity and way of life.

When Thomas Hammarberg the pedophile provides decent evidence of the above racism or xenophobia or withdraws the accusation, I’ll withdraw my accusation to the effect that Hammarberg plays with the genitals of young boys and girls.
