A 73 year old former Marine in Stratford, Connecticut used to fly a Confederate flag next to the American flag and the Marine Corps flag at his home, but he recently exchanged it for a Nazi flag instead. And he really can’t imagine why people are upset about that:
The flag of Nazi Germany, which symbolizes for many race supremacy, hatred, violence and murder of Jewish people, is being flown not to convey those messages, said Sincavage, a 73-year-old U.S. Marine. He said he is flying the flag as a symbol of a totalitarian state, which he said Germany became, and which he feels the United States is becoming under President Barack Obama.
He said he is flying the symbol of totalitarianism next to the American flag, a symbol of the U.S. Constitution, to show the contrast. Also flying on Sincavage’s house is a flag of the U.S. Marines and a flag of the Vatican.“I am going to keep flying (the Nazi flag) until Obama changes his policies, resigns or gets impeached,” Sincavage said. “I am going to stay with it on the basis of my First Amendment rights.”
The Stratfordite said he “didn’t realize people would take it as offensive,” and he is not a member of any type of group associated with the flag.
“I have no animosity toward Jewish people,” he told The Star. “They too are being given an unfair deal by President Obama. The founder of my religion was a Jew.”
I know, right? Some of his best friends are Jews. He even lets them use his bathroom. He does have a First Amendment right to fly the Nazi flag; and we have a First Amendment right to call him an asshole for doing so.
