Even the Swiss hate Germans
As most of Europe does. Even though most Swiss are themselves ethnically German.
"The Swiss government's racism watchdog issued a warning Friday about rising animosity toward German immigrants, who are being stereotyped as boorish, domineering and even Nazis.
Swiss laws forbid spreading hateful ideologies or discrimination against groups because of their race, ethnicity or religion. But the laws have never been invoked -- or needed -- to protect Germans.
Anti-German sentiment has risen, however, as Switzerland has opened its labor market to its European neighbors. Germans have taken the greatest advantage, with more than 220,000 citizens now living permanently in the neighboring country.
German citizens have come to dominate Swiss universities, hospitals and highly trained professional work in recent years. The president of the Federal Commission against Racism, Georg Kreis, said the economic crisis and rising unemployment has been making people increasingly see Germans as unwanted competitors.
Hard to believe that the Germans need protection from anyone. I think the Swiss are entitled to grumble if they want to. Sort of amusing, though, that Germans in Switzerland are now in the prominent positions that Jews occupied in pre-Hitler Germany. But I can't see a Kristallnacht against Germans coming up.
