American gets beaten up for doing Nazi salute in Germany

"An American tourist in Germany was beaten up by a passer-by after he began giving the Nazi salute outside a cafe in Dresden, police said Sunday.

The incident occurred about 8:15 a.m. Saturday as the man left a cafe called Europe in the Neustadt district of Dresden, police said in a statement. The district is known to be a liberal part of the town and a popular meeting spot for students.

The tourist was identified only as a 41-year-old American man who was “severely drunk,” according to police. He suffered minor injuries, while the stranger who assailed him fled the scene, police said.

Police said the U.S. national is under investigation for violating German laws prohibiting Nazi symbols and that they are still seeking the passer-by for causing personal injury, according to the Associated Press.

The Nazi salute — the right arm straight and angled slightly up, palm down — was used as a greeting and a way of expressing devotion to Adolf Hitler under the Third Reich. Germany outlawed the salute after World War II, along with Holocaust denial and other symbols and signals associated with the Nazis. A conviction can carry a prison sentence of up to three years, although courts often impose fines instead."

Don't equate a nazi with a person that got (rightfully) pissed for what the nazi was doing.

USA (fought against Nazi Germany in WW2)

-Neo-nazis are on the rise and becoming more bold by the day

-No laws prohibiting the use of Nazi symbols

Germany (former Nazi Germany)

-Has laws prohibiting Nazi symbols

What's sad is that the nazis, like the ones in Virginia, will eventually use this as a reason for protesting. They're like the Westboro Baptist Church. They want to get attacked and heckled by counter protesters so that they can get their victim card. Republicans are shook.

But why? Like, more than anything else, what kind of stupidity to think that there would be no reaction to this and to assume your rights are protected and enshrined in a foreign country. Unlike America, Germans aren't as lenient with Nazi things lol
