Vandals deface Ruth Bader Ginsburg poster in New York City with Nazi symbols

Source: Business Insider

The New York City Police Department's hate crimes unit is investigating after a poster of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was defaced with a swastika, a sexist epithet, and an anti-Semitic insult.

A commuter tweeted a photo to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the police on Wednesday showing the defaced poster on a Brooklyn subway platform, according to WNBC.

"DIE, JEW B----" was written across the image of Ginsburg. There was a swastika over her mouth.

The MTA tweeted a response and later followed up saying that the defaced poster, which was for the 2018 book "The Unstoppable Ruth Bader Ginsburg: American Icon," was cleaned up after the NYPD finished collecting evidence.

1. Unbelievable! This is what trump has encouraged. Thankfully NYC has video cameras everywhere....

...and this was most likely captures on more than one camera.

When they find the perpetrator, which they will, they will throw the book at that one.

New York City,
New Zealand

Charleston
Sandy Hook
Columbine
Brazil

5. This is the defaced poster




Too many...TOO MANY...want to IGNORE anti-Semitism; they want to pretend it doesn't exist or isn't important enough to discuss. LOOK AT IT.

6. Speaks volumes

of how we have devolved so quickly. The Dark Ages have extinguished The Enlightenment. The Supreme Court will next rule that public horse whippings are a form of free expression and thus guaranteed by the First Amendment.
You heard it here first.
