Canadian town refuses to remove swastikas from park

A Canadian town says it will not remove swastikas from a public park because it has historical significance.

The Nazi symbols adorn an anchor that was on display in Pointe-des-Cascades, Quebec.

Corey Fleischer, who goes around Montreal removing hateful graffiti, tried to paint over the swastikas.

But the mayor stopped him and had police remove him from the park, arguing the anchor is a part of local history.

Asshole dogooderism…

    “Corey Fleischer” self appointed do gooder elected by nobody. Should be thrown in jail for vandalism.

      As should all those dogooder assholes.

    Wait, what? It’s used in Hinduism and Buddhism? That means Hindus and Buddhists must be Nazis! Quick, someone call Antifa! They’ll save us from those nasty Hindu Buddhist Nazis!

    “Asshole dogooderism… ”

    How about just pure assholeism?”

    These fascists should have that swastika tattooed on their heads.

    • Convicted mass-murder Charles Manson got a swastika tattooed on his forehead. And he espoused a brand of murderous anarchy he called “helter skelter” for the purpose of starting an apocalyptic race war. But I wouldn’t want to give the new generation of fascist Leftists any ideas — there isn’t a toilet on the face of this earth they are not willing to drink from.

    If I win the Power Ball tonight I’m resurrecting the Edmonton Swastikas hockey team.
    Just try and stop me!

    • I’m okay with that, so long as you invite all of us lowly commenters from bcf onto your yacht and private jet once in a while. Plus a couple weeks per year on your island in the Caribbean would be a nice touch.

      Unless you live in Michigan (or Illinois?) that’s run out of money so they can’t even pay their lottery winners! [Sorry, don’t feel like Binging the answer as it’s late.]

      • Here’s a hint. It’s the State that everyone has predicted for years will be hit with a great earthquake from The Big Guy Upstairs and fall into the ocean. (if you get the answer right DbN has promised to split his Power Ball winnings with you)

    • DVult

      I wonder how much money you need to buy and run an NHL team? The Powerball winning are probably insufficient.

    The embossed emblem on the anchor is not a nazi swastika, though it sort of resembles one. The emblem was a kind of company logo for the Byers company of Sunderland, England. Supposedly, they stopped using the emblem after the nazis appropriated it.

    A more plausible theory would be along the lines of a Nazi anchor being part of an early post war load of iffy scrap steel ballast on a freighter returning to Canada after delivering cargo to Europe.

      See Mark DeFord Elation’s comment just above yours, simus1.

        Google “street view” shows the “Anchor Park” collection very well. Presumably these lost anchors were consumables used on lake boats that got into difficulties in the river current there and needed to get quickly stopped to avoid going aground or worse. Once the bypass canal was built, it must have been a lot easier on the nerves being a captain.

  • Hitler’s car is at the War Museum in Ottawa.

    Will that disappear, too?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      I would bet Mackenzie King made the arrangements for that to be there. He was such a big fan of Hitler.

    • Alain

      I didn’t know that, but I think it is rather cool. Speaking of Hitler’s car some of the best, most reliable cars/vehicles I ever owned were Volkswagons. Yes, I also recall the hysteria of some who considered buying and owning one make one a Nazi sympathiser, but it was like water on a duck’s back to me. Since then Volkswagon has been all downhill as far as I am concerned.

    Ask about the importance of aryan & swastika to any practicing North Indian hindu, the libtards, antifa & media won’t be able to stand & debate for more than a minute.

    Where I grew up, Swastika was just 5 miles down the road. It was where the train stopped. It had been named in 1908, long before the Nazis adopted it as their symbol;

    When I was a kid I was told it was an Indian (aboriginal) name. But recently, I have been discovering the fascinating history of the place. Sorry, no Nazis live there but one was conceived there and ended up as Hitler’s sort of girlfriend (to make Eva jealous).

    • Holey maroley! Where did you grow up?

        Kirkland Lake, the mile of gold — main exports — whores and hockey players.

          Later, the manager said to the boy, “I was impressed by the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who can think on their feet. Where are you from son?”

          “Kirkland Lake, Sir” replied the boy.

          “Well why did you leave Kirkland Lake?” the manager asked.

          “Sir, there’s nothing but whores and hockey players up there”, said the boy.

          “Really” said the manager, “My wife is from Kirkland Lake”.

          “No shit” said the boy, “who’d she play for?”

    Is this expressing support for Russian imperialism?
