Racist and anti-Semitic incidents at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil continued Saturday, according to Yahoo News, when a Nazi sympathizer rushed the field during the Ghana-Germany game.
No security attempted to stop him, eyewitnesses said, as he took off his shirt to reveal a Nazi message. A photo of the incident shows a man standing with numbers and phrases in German scrawled in black paint or marker across his chest.
According to FIFAs own website, Article 3 of its Statutes claims that the competition rejects all racism or discrimination, and implies that legal action will be taken against violators. [
] However, no FIFA official allegedly intervened in Saturdays incident, and the Nazi infiltrator had to be escorted off the field by Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari, prompting criticism over FIFAs blasé attitude.

This would be a matter for security and law enforcement not FIFA.
Was he in a wheelchair?
It’s clearly a worldwide conspiracy against the Jews.
I’m glad to see Jews whining as much as Blacks, and gays.
That guy has more hair than all the Nazi sympathizers I’ve seen taken together. I cannot discern any Nazi messages on his belly, either. Maybe on his back?
I think it's a WalMart ad.........20% off on all HD TV's this weekend only..........
Yeah, I believe that it says:
Mom, stuck in Brazil watching the World Cup.
Please send Money.
Your loving son, Adolf.
I thought initially the belly had something about the SS (only after the headline said ‘nazi’). But after looking at the same thing on his back, it just seems to be a 44. So, an email address and what looks like a phone number? No wonder the Brazilians and the Ghanaian player weren’t particularly outraged.
I just don’t buy it. He doesn’t look like a Nazi to me. The SS sign is a Germanic rune, not a 4, BTW.
He just looks like another “look at me” hipster.
The guy was apparently not a good enough neo-Nazi to figure out the most obvious symbol to use.
From what I can tell from the picture, the only thing specifically Nazi about that guy with his shirt off is that he’s white, and the two lightning bolt Ss. Though since those are in the middle of what looks like a word, I’m not sure that they’re meant to refer to the Schutzstaffel.
In the US the unintelligible scrawls on his body would presumably be protected by the 1st Amendment. I realize that doesn’t apply outside the US. But I find it intriguing that the author of this piece is incensed not by anything the guy may have DONE, but by his attempt at self-expression, however incoherent it might have been.
Just figured out the number on his chest, partly covered by the player’s arm.
Probably the worst marketing fail I've seen from "Go Daddy"?
