    The Local ^ | 28 Sep 2015
    On Sunday eastern Germany's first Buddhist graveyard opened in Dresden, marking a turning point for the region's Vietnamese community. But a missing symbol makes the burial ground a peculiarly German affair. The burial ground is long overdue, Ding Linger, a spokesperson for the Vietnamese Buddhist Centre in Dresden told The Local. "It's been needed for 40 years since Vietnamese people first came to East Germany," he said. Vietnamese are the largest immigrant population in east Germany, making up 100,000 of the population. Of those, 7,000 live in Dresden, reports the Hamburger Morgenpost. With around 85 percent of the Vietnamese population...

    It’s sad that we have to do an annual recap on this topic. It’s even sadder that we could do more frequent updates. The Amcha Intiative at the University of California, led by the estimable Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, a lecturer in the UC system, has compiled a “Swastika Tracker” which gives “a partial list of incidents where swastikas were found on U. S. campuses.” Swastikas have been display on at least 14 campuses so far this year including: • Stanford • Northwestern • The University of Missouri • Framingham State University • Farleigh Dickinson • Northeastern • Tufts • SUNY Purchase...

    DAVIS--On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to. “I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said. Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst. “I mean, you can see throughout history many Arab countries have tried to take down Israel,” Nir Voloshin said. Pro-Israel students say they feared recent events would lead to...

    DAVIS (CBS13) – A Jewish fraternity woke up to the hate symbols spray-painted on their home Saturday morning. Two red swastikas were found painted on Alpha Epsilon Pi’s house, an off-campus fraternity. The Davis Police Department says they are investigating the incident as a hate crime. AEPI brothers believe the vandalism was done in retaliation to their support for Israel, as this week the student body voted to pass an act that will urge the UC Regents to divest from companies that provide resources to Israel. The frat brothers say they’ve been very outspoken at those “divestment meetings” and believe...

    Residents of the Jewish community in Tatabanya, Hungary, were shocked to discover on Friday that unknown vandals had desecrated the local Jewish cemetery. The vandals spray-painted anti-Semitic graffiti on the tombstones, including swastikas and statements such as “Smelly Jews” and “The Holocaust didn’t happen, but it will.” “They spray-painted swastikas and the black cross which was a symbol of the Nazi movement during the reign of Adolf Hitler,” said Zohar Meir, one of the initiators of the March of the Living in Hungary, which is scheduled for next month. …

Lovitz took to his Twitter account to decry swastikas and “Jew” written in maple syrup on the front walkway of a childhood friend’s home in Northridge.

The prank, which also included feces left on the family’s doorstep and toilet paper on the property’s trees, was discovered April 3. The family...

The nazis were not fond of individual rights, small limited/representative government, or life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Take a look at the National socialist party platform, 1920 and you will see the obvious. Many of you will be incapable of doing the following: blind yourself all references to 'the jews' as you read this and it indeed does look very similar to what we see from one of america's prominent ideologies today. It doesn't sound like conservatives. How many times do you see...

Sam Stein of the Puffington Host believes he has found a photo that vindicates Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose comment vilifying ObamaCare opponents we noted yesterday. The actual photo is at the link; here is Stein’s description and argument: A woman protesting Democratic plans for health care reform was captured holding up a sign of a Swastika, with the president’s name below it, encircled and crossed out by a red line. The implication is that Obama is a Nazi--though the culprit, in this case, added a question mark next to...

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think much of the people who show up at town hall meetings to express their opposition [to] government-run health care. In fact to her, they’re worse than Hitler.” By now we have all seen Pelosi’s comments about the Tea Parties and the anti-socialized medicine protests being “Astroturf” (i.e., artificial) movements rather than genuine “grassroots” crusades.

    Last night on Fox News, Sean Hannity asked former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to comment on the Democrats’ campaign to demonize protesters who oppose President Obama’s health care reforms. Hannity ran the now-familiar video clip of present day Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claiming that some protesters were “carrying swastikas”. (So far no evidence has emerged to substantiate Pelosi’s charge; presumably if photographic evidence existed, it would have been featured on the front page of the New York Times.)

On the table was a proposal by Luxembourg Justice Minister Luc Frieden that rules to combat racism should include a ban "on displaying symbols inciting hatred and violence."
