Lay off the Nazi bullshit

Just leave the dead alone man. I don’t see the need to trample on any soldier’s grave. Let them rest in peace and find something more worthwhile to be outraged about. Signed: a veteran of Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

First & foremost, thank you for your military service.
Swastikas are symbols of hate & horrific genocide of human beings by the deranged demagogue Hitler & his murderous Nazis because those children, women & men were born of Jewish mothers (like Jesus). They also encourage & serve as rallying signs for the neo-Nazis & White Supremacists in our country whose stated goal is to kill all America Jews. Current national data shows hate crimes against American Jewish people & property have increased. Germany even bans their public display by making it a crime. Swastikas have no place in an American military cemetery with our deceased American military men & women who fought & over 400,000 sacrificed their lives to stop the evil Third Reich whose central ideological feature was anti-Semitism.

Hi (name withheld),
This is not about bothering a dead man or trampling on a grave, don’t be an idiot. It’s about removing a hated, insulting insignia from some gravestones. The swastika should never have been allowed there in the first place. If you’re a fan of the swastika you can fly it at home, but it doesn’t belong in a US Government facility.
