• Wasn't it a joke? I doubt those kids are nazis 'cause the nazis are over and have been for years. People need to get over them. I really couldn't care less about something like this.

      The photographer came out and said that the boys were waving goodbye to the camera and somehow, months later, the photo hit the Internet and it was turned into the Nazi salute. People are dumb and attach stupid meanings to things. Like the recent "OK" hand symbol being for the skinheads. Stupid.

      There's just an awful lot of hysteria regarding nazis and white supremacists. The media and left would have you think that the OK sign and milk are symbols of white supremacy when the reality is they're clearly not. It all boils down to the fact that the left has a very, very high demand for racists, when the supply is very small. So you gotta expand definitions and make stuff up and so on to make things appear as if their fantasy world is reality. They're fighting windmills.

      Nazis are over? Tell that to all the people today who identify as Nazis and get swastika tattoos.

      I didn't see the story, but the follow-up comments tell a lot. Liberal exploitation is SOP for the Democrat-fed media - anything to stir up racial division.
  • A sieg heil is no more racist than a black power fist.
    • Archie Bunker
      And many would call you a racist for even suggesting that. That's how far we've come.

      Yes, I am a racist, made that way by the DEATH TO AMERICA party.
    • Army Veteran
      "Death to America Party" - LOL. People have no understanding of why the swastika was even created - it had nothing to do with "racism". Communism was knocking on the door of Germany and Hitler designed it (a symbol of good luck, and one that adorned the church he attended as a youth) to strike fear into the hearts of the Soviets. To say it is a symbol of racism is utterly ridiculous since it was designed in the early 1920s - long before Hitler even thought of becoming Germany's leader. This is an example of the kind of mythical media hype that has demonized Germany so much that historical facts have been altered into a one-sided narrative - one that has been spoon-fed to school children for many decades. [] Truth be known, the term "Sieg Heil" translates to "Victory and Salvation" - a show of support for Germany's efforts to regain its sovereignty back from the illegal Versailles Treaty.
  • I suppose the people in thirties Germany saw the salute as an interesting alternative to an handshake (just the thing for Covid 19) ?We can understand the people who used it then. Those naive silly people who use it today obviously have not learned a lesson from history. Those gallant people from America and the British Empire spilled their blood and their treasure so these people could live in peace and freedom.😖

      "Those naive silly people who use it today obviously have not learned a lesson from history." - No, they have no idea what the Nazis were about. They, like the rest of the world, believe that Nazism is all about hatred against the Jews and other minorities. But the Nazis were formed in the early 1920s long before the Hitler administration came to be. It was created to oppose the Soviet Union and the Communism that was knocking on their door. Today's wannabe "Nazis" are emulating what they want to believe Hitler was about - hate for everyone except whites ("Aryans").
  • Growing up in the US after WW2, we boys used to do that "nazi salute" derisively by holding a finger under our noses as a "mustache" and saying "otsi totsi another nazi". I still don't know what it was supposed to mean, but it was fun back in the 1950s.

      Don't you miss the "good 'ole days" when kids could be kids without being seen as threats to our national security?
    • dalcocono
      Yup, I do. Those days were long before the "PC" thing was ever considered.
  • It's racist.
    • Army Veteran
      Only for those who believe it to be.
  • If they were really giving the Nazi salute, that is extremely offensive -- no, the Nazis and Nazi views and ideology are not "over". They should be disciplined. If someone has mistakenly interpreted what they were doing as a Nazi salute, it should be ignored.
  • it should be banned
