Tying in with that “Hindenburg Park” censorship fiasco from last month, we thought now was a good time to reprise this old posting of ours from the past. It’s about what can be seen on quite a few lamp posts scattered around Glendale California…
Hello, lamp-post! What ya’ knowin‘?
Maybe we should run around to the other side of the building here. Because that’s what half of Berlin saw for about a dozen years:
The last we heard those lamp posts are still there.
You know what too? When we first brought this Glendale swastika thing up over 20 years ago, former News Press columnist Will Rogers said that it was a phony issue. He then went on to claim that those of us who were complaining about them were both idiotic and nuts. He said they weren’t Nazi swastikas at all, and pointed everyone to an official City of Glendale “study” that was specifically commissioned to disprove this odious claim. They were actually Mayan peace symbols or whatever.
Mr. Sensitivity, eh? Will must not have ever seen the above video, which is pretty conclusive evidence that Glendale indeed has a problem. Those same swastikas-in-the-reverse were seen all over Hitler’s Germany. It was an unavoidable sight wherever they happened to be fluttering on the backside — which along with on top of the Reichstag was all the time.
So as such, they’ve gotta go. Much more than this anti-Hitler von Hindenburg deserved, and which was the real reason for his lionization by the local German-American community. Hindenburg represented the heroic pre-Hitler past to those German expats, and that’s why they wanted to keep his name alive.
Paging the ever-righteous Mona Field! She who was behind the effort to strip Hindenburg from La Crescenta. Guess what? You’ve got real Nazi swastikas in Glendale!
But she won’t care. Unless it’s their own issue that they think they own on their own, most modern day “liberals” will ignore it. They’re never going to admit that they let it get by, or that someone else even more liberal made them look bad.
This includes Councilman Rogers, btw.
