Anti-Teutonism is the anti-Semitism of the elite: Check out this hilariously biased NYT article slurring a German-speaking Swiss patriot who works tirelessly to preserve Switzerland's unique (and remarkably successful) national character.

Here's my article on how Switzerland accomplishes this remarkable feat.
