An American tourist gave the Nazi salute in Germany yesterday..

An American tourist in Germany was beaten up by a passerby 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 passerby for causing personal injury

4. Ugly American Nazis abroad. Ugh. Sorry Germany.

I lived in Germany as a small child. I have traveled there several times since and have close German friends. It is a great country.

They do not tolerate Nazis and white supremacists. They have laws against this racist crap.

The USA could learn something from the Germans.
