A local Zurich politician has apologized for hurting anyone when he posted messages on Twitter calling for a ’Kristallnacht’ for mosques.
The man quit his position on the local school board and left the Swiss People’s Party, ahead of a planned vote by party leaders to expel the man.
He said he was surprised at the storm around his actions, but couldn’t say more because of an on-going case.
Zurich prosecutors seized the man’s computer Tuesday, and opened an investigation against the man for violating anti-racism laws.
The news site NZZ Online reported the man had lost his job at an international financial firm, as well.
Over the weekend, the man reportedly posted a message saying “Maybe we need another Kristallnacht, this time for mosques.”
He initially denied writing the message, and they were deleted, but copies were found by various journalists.

Unfortunately, speech is more and more locked up nowadays. This will scare people from saying what they think.
