Vegan denied passport because she was 'being annoying'

Imagine if you were allowed to have a say in the citizenship of foreign pests.

This is great.

Blue will fucking love it.



Quote:
A woman has been denied a Swiss passport because residents thought her animal rights campaigning and criticism of local traditions was "annoying".

Nancy Holten, 42, was born in the Netherlands, moved to Switzerland when she was eight, and has two children who are Swiss citizens.

But her second attempt to obtain a Swiss passport of her own has been rejected by the residents committee in Gipf-Oberfrick in the canton of Aargau, who have a say in citizenship applications, according to The Local.

It reported Holten, a vegan and animal rights campaigner, has gained an unfavourable reputation in the municipality due to her hard-line stance against the local use of cowbells, which she claims damages cows' health.

Holten has also campaigned against hunting and piglet racing, as well as complained about noise from church bells in town.

So when it came time for the residents to decide on whether Holten should become a naturalised Swiss, they said no.

Swiss People's Party local branch president Tanja Suter told Swiss media that Holten had a "big mouth".

She said the committee didn't want to give Ms Holten the "present" of Swiss citizenship "if she annoys us and doesn't respect our traditions".

Ms Holten, who speaks fluent Swiss-German, told The Local she thought she was rejected because she was "too strident and spoke my mind too often".

"Many people think that I am attacking their traditions. But that was not what it was about, it was never about that," she said.

"What primarily motivated me about the cowbells was the animals' welfare."
This was Ms Holten's second attempt to gain Swiss citizenship.

She said she wanted to become a citizen "because this really is my home".

"I grew up here and feel very attached to Switzerland," she said.

"I have friends and relatives here. I have worked here and take part in social life here."

Urs Treier, a spokesman for the Gipf-Oberfrick administration, told The Local Ms Holten's application wasn't rejected because of her problem with the local traditions, but because of the very public nature of her campaigning.

"The voters of Gipf-Oberfrick know that ... people who want to be naturalised in Switzerland may have different ideological opinions.

"The reason why they have yet again clearly rejected the naturalisation is that Nancy Holten very often expresses her personal opinion in the media, and also gathers media coverage for rebelling against traditional [Swiss] things within the village."

Holten's application for citizenship has now been sent to the cantonal government in Aargau, where it could still be approved.

Swiss cantons and municipalities have their own requirements for green-lighting Swiss citizenship and they vary.

Some applicants are subjected to verbal or written tests while in other cases, the decision rests with the communal assembly.

And it's not unheard of for aspiring Swiss citizens to have their hopes dashed.

Last year, a Kosovan family who lived in the canton of Basel-Country had their bid for naturalisation denied by the residents committee, partly because they wore trackpants around town.

And in 2014, an elderly American man who had lived in Switzerland for 43 years had his citizenship application rejected because he could not list the names of local lakes or identify the largest employer in town, The Local reported.

Some vegans are very fanatical and they become religious fundamentalists, and sadly they do not recognise their own condition, an intolerance of others way of life.

I've known as few vegans (very briefly) and had the misfortune to once be married to a rabid vegetarian.

Many of them are really fucked up people. EVERYTHING is ALL about them. They don't really give a shit about 'animal rights', they just want a cause to allow them to be in the spotlight. Like queers who insist on kissing and fondling each other in public for the sole reason of provoking a reaction, or drunks who squeal endlessly about pies.

Anything to gain center stage.....I'm delighted this bitch got called on it.

Don't see many vegans running down people with trucks, beheading butchers, blowing up meat eating kids, gunning down people in a steak house, disco or flying planes into buildings though.

But she's vegan, so shouldn't that be "mad lettuce"?

It's not a chosen lifestyle but an invented political fanaticism.

Veganism/vegetarianism has long been a instinctive lifestyle in the real world long before becoming fashionable attached in the disconnected West, and without the promoted and fabricated politics.

The backward Eurocentrism shows it's true colours once again.

Its not really a good headline. The rejection of her application had little to do with her vegan status, and much more to do with her lack of wilingness to show integration to the society. She was complaining amongst other thing of cow bells, and indeed church bells.

The locals are stating their opinion that she is not "one of them". Indeed a useful yardstick for many countries.

ho ho. I once worked with a guy in the Aussie outback, we had zero facilities just a caravan and a gen set for power and would barbecue meat 3 times a day, once a fortnight we went to town to re supply, bought heaps of veggies for the fucker but the first thing he done was put them in the freezer, didn't have a clue that veggies need to be blanched first, dumb fucker he was, I once asked him why he was veggie and he reckoned he had a bad experience at Mc Donald's. WTF, sacked the weirdo shortly after.

I prefer Swiss cow bells to Pinoy roosters...

Took once new flat in Switzerland, was happy to escape 3 different church bells near by... Until i heard the new one not far from my window on 4th floor. Got used to it after some time.

Roosters are somehow less predictable than those bells, but you know it's around 4 Am when they start. Then in the day training goes on any time, they present a rooster against another to train them.

Moved house few month ago, there were 10 roosters on West side squatting a house and a lot more squatting empty land on the East side. I complained to village committee, they agreed that it is not allowed due to sanitation reasons but never really evicted any, they told the guys to move but they never found another place, then anyway i left. My guess is that they still are there.

In the new place, better village, no roosters, GREAT ! But most days i hear the cockpit arena noise.
I went once to see how it goes. One guy takes bets by lots of pinoy roostering away their bets, damn noisy ! Then fight start, 10 to 20 seconds silence and all the guys roost away again.

Hmmm picture oversize, to many roosters for coppermine...
