Okay, so here we have another perfect example of the obsessive compulsive behaviour of the liberal mind. For more than a hundred years the Swiss town of St Gallen carried the name of Krügerstrasse (Kruger Street), but because ol’ President Paul Kruger was evidently a racist, the name had to change. The Dutch Internet Tagblatt actually went so far as to state that Paul Kruger was an Apartheid Pioneer. It’s easy to make these outrages statement when the person has been dead for one hundred and five years! Who’s going to sue them?
Ninety-nine percent of residents living in the town of St Gallen didn’t have a clue that the street was named in honour of an old South African President, and neither do they care much about African politics, but now 80-odd innocent inhabitants living or doing business in that street have to change their address to Duerrenmattstrasse (Duerrenmatt Street). And then there are maps to be changed, etc. etc… Eish -- The whitey must pay for his sins and if he doesn’t know what his sins were, he’ll be reminded over and over that his forefathers are to blame!
'Racist' Oom Paul gets the boot
ZURICH: A street in the Swiss town of St Gallen, which for more than a hundred years bore the name of former South African president Paul Kruger, was renamed by local authorities yesterday.
Theo Buff, from the town's planning department, said the name was being changed "because of racist associations".
Kruger, who led the Boer resistance against the British during in the Second Boer War of 1899 to 1902, lived in St Gallen after fleeing Africa when the British advanced on Pretoria.
"In the context of the time, naming a street after Paul Kruger can be understood," the St Gallen council said, "but today it can no longer be justified."
The street will now be called Duerrenmatt Street, after Swiss author and dramatist Friedrich Duerrenmatt. – Reuters
