Germany 'repulsed' by Hitler salutes at U.S. far-right event

Source: The Associated Press

BERLIN -- The German government expressed revulsion Wednesday at Nazi-style salutes such as those performed at a recent far-right event in Washington, but said it was confident the United States can tackle the issue. Video published by The Atlantic showed participants at the event Saturday raising their arms in salute during a speech by Richard Spencer, head of the white-nationalist National Policy Institute.

"Speaking generally, whenever we see videos from anywhere showing people raising their hand to do Hitler salutes we are repulsed," German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Wednesday after being asked about the clip .

White-nationalist groups have existed in the United States for decades but drew increased attention last summer when activists showed up at the Republican National Convention to celebrate Donald Trump's nomination as the party's presidential candidate.

Spencer, who is credited with coining the term "alt-right," was filmed Saturday saying "Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!" to cheers from the audience.

6. That Nazi questioned whether Jewish people even exist

and CNN had a discussion about the existence of a Jewish people. It was absolutely insane what is happening these days.

Among stranger things, here's a Vietnamese-American woman supporting white nationalism. You don't want to know what she said about the Jewish journalists reporting her story.

Um... Germany have you met our 45th president yet? Clearly we're incapable of tackling anything!

9. what they meant is the USA will be 'ok' even if Republicans president is a child raping closet nazi.

Won't be any 'fun' for the 2 million prisoners in 'for profit' prisons, who are & will be the Corporations- 20 cents an hour slaves for the Republican American 'jobs' program.

But most Americans don't pay any attention to Americas 13th amendment slaves anyway. /s /s
