    It's one thing to have a nazi flag in a collection of war memorabilia, but flying it outside of one's home is seriously over the top.
    I don't believe in vandalism at all, but that's almost begging for it.

    A disgraced flag , likely flown by a fascist.

    This one's headed for a similar notoriety;

    Is being hypocritical a requirement to be a liberal? why, yes, it is.

    You have to recognize the HUGE juevos this guy must have. I mean, I predict penis decorations painted on the outside of this house, some broken windows, and likely some licking flames in that house. I can't see how they figure they could actually survive there. The equation does not balance.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Netanyahu Wants the Power to Abuse Human Rights Unhindered


    The Netanyahu government's plan to undermine Israel's judicial system is bad enough. But opposition leader Yair Lapid's idea to hold a referendum on this revolution is even worse. It could legitimize, irrevocably, the violation of human rights

    First thing I thought of.

    This is like putting a 'trump sucks' bumper sticker on your car. While it's the truth, you're begging for broken windows when you come out of the store.

    Swastikas are generally banned throughout Germany.

    That should say something about this clown

    People that do that, or wear MAGA paraphernalia in locales which definitely aren't MAGA, only do it for attention, the best way to get rid of them is to completely ignore them

    City officials said the flag has since been taken down on the homeowner's own accord,

    End of a bum thread really, eh.

    Note; That particular flag was the German military flag, flown on ships, airfields and military buildings. Top left of it is an image of the Iron Cross, their highest award for bravery.
    It isn't the national Nazi political swastika flag.

    if he has huge juevos, they're equally balanced by a very tiny little brain.
