Swiss Bitch by Brian Viveros – click to enlarge
Why is it that whenever I
am so bored out of my mind that I watch ‘Arena’, there’s Jasmin Hutter‘s big freckled mouth shouting insult at the foreign population living in Switzerland? Is it not enough for you, Miss Hutter, that - thanks to the BBC - even the English will always remember your blatant xenophobia and stupidity for saying things like:
‘You know one of my best friends is Turkish originally. But really you’d never know it, she’s just like a Swiss person.’
I’m a very stoic person and trust me, it takes a lot to make me scream and shout at an innocent TV screen. And even though I very much prefer topical to personal confrontation: Enough is enough. I think it’s time to let you know that it’s the likes of you - and not those barbarian ‘foreigners’ you obviously love to hate so much - who make me and my friends want to leave this country in a tiny fishing boat. You are the reason why I tell everyone that I’m from Novosibirsk when I stay as a guest in a foreign country.
Jesus Christ… we’re almost the same age, Miss Hutter… yet it feels like there are light years
and millions of CFC-enriched cans of hairspray between us when it comes to trying to understand and communicate with fellow humans. Because that’s what those 21% of our population are: Fellow humans. Not parasites.
You should be ashamed of yourself, Miss Hutter. And so should you, SF1, for always inviting her to your show.
Even Especially if she pays good money to be on it.
