A couple in Ghent, Virginia was really mad about President Obama’s immigration order, wrongly believing that he didn’t have the authority to do it. So they apparently sat down and talked about how best to express their outrage over it and the best idea they could come up with was to fly a Nazi flag outside their home.
The homeowner told WVEC-TV that the flag was set up to protest President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration reform.
He declined to speak on camera without a written agreement to view the report before it aired, but the station said it does not accommodate such requests.
Another neighbor, Beth Brooker, recorded a conversation she had with a woman who helped the Ghent man remove the Nazi flag.
“You have every right to fly that flag, you do,” said Brooker in the video posted to Facebook. “But I also think you need to understand how offensive it is.”
The woman insisted the flag was simply a political expression.
“It’s offensive when one person tried to change the rule of law on his own and that’s what this states,” the woman said.The man spoke off-camera to WTKR-TV, saying he intended to shock and offend his neighbors with the Nazi flag the same way he is offended by bumper stickers supporting the president or his policies.
“I am not a Nazi, I am half-Jewish,” said Dr. William Wheeler. “I hung the flag after watching President Obama (Thursday) night. Obama usurped his oath of office. I wanted people to be shocked, because I am offended.”
Well that’s just a brilliant analogy, isn’t it? “You put bumper stickers on your car supporting a politician I disagree with, so it’s perfectly okay for me to fly the flag of a regime responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people.” What the hell is this guy a doctor of?
