“Liebe deinen Nächsten. Für mich sind das unsere Österreicher.”

“Love your neighbor as yourself. For me, that means our Austrians.” Campaign slogan of the racist populist ex-Jörg-Haider* F.P.Ö. party, which came in third in Austria’s 29 Sep 2013 parliamentary election. Quoting the Bible to encourage and give permission to hate foreigners, i.e. anyone who isn’t Austrian. F.P.Ö. politicians said the slogan was an attempt at a “positive” campaign, avoiding “negative” messaging, and that the other political parties were against Austria.

(Bah.)

* Jörg Haider’s old political party has gone through several name changes and reorganizations. Süddeutsche.de said there are now two viable political parties carrying on the horrible Haider’s legacy: F.P.Ö. & B.Z.Ö.
