Listen to this “Swiss” imam do the verbal bob and weave when his mosque is exposed as a hotbed of “extremism”.
What really gets me is that this Turk speaks schwyzerdütsch so perfectly you wouldn’t even detect an accent if you didn’t see him speak and you knew nothing of him.
And because he knows the language so good, having grown up in Switzerland, and obviously in the Zurich area due to his dialect, probably from a multiple generation Turkish family, he shamelessly uses the no-grammar, no-limit, all goes schwyzerdütsch to its max to bury every single potential answer, every single word in a litany of nonsensical schwyzerdütsch nonsense that only those understand who are ON to these Pappenheimers.
I cannot explain in English just how amazing it is the way you can talk your way through anything in schwyzerdütsch without ever saying a darn thing, and there is no comparison in any language, not that I have ever seen. It’s due to the fact that the language is only spoken, and not an officially written language, and so really anything goes, there are no limits to the making up of words and nobody understands but everyone gets it that shares the same “agenda” or knows what a person tries to do.
I am amazed that Roger Schawinski didn’t call him out in the clip, although I have to say that unfortunately I haven’t seen the whole clip and just when Roger said “I don’t get it”, the clip ended. I would have liked to see more but couldn’t find the entire interview available online, and I am pretty sure that Roger, an avowed liberal and do-gooder himself, actually called him out on the language cabbage.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking Schawinski is a “good” journalist. He is biased to a nauseating degree. He just recently called Trump mentally ill on his show on Radio 24, which I listen to sometimes and have since 1979 when his Radio 24 station started as a “pirate channel”. Roger has been around for a very very long time and I used to be a huge fan of his, but now that I am a grown up and learned the American conservative way of thinking, I of course see what a fraud he and his fellow media “journalists” in Switzerland are.
Nonetheless, this clip was well worth it. I’ll continue to try and find the entire interview though. I think 30 seconds longer and we’d see the liberal face of Schawinski in the light, he’d say something like “I know not all muslims are like that”, or “we need to take care of the refugees”. Etc.
But it was fun while it lasted. 🙂
