Bigots vandalize a South Philly building with pro-Trump, pro-Nazi images

Published

on

An abandoned building in Philadelphia was vandalized Wednesday morning with pro-Donald Trump and pro-Nazi symbolism, the Philly Voice reports.

In one image, a swastika replaced the T in Trump’s name, another featured the German phrase “Sieg Heil” (“Hail victory”)—a phrase popularized in Nazi Germany. Philadelphia police Public Affairs Officer Christine O’Brien said detectives respond to the location in South Philadelphia after receiving a call about the graffiti.

Cosmo Baker, a South Philadelphia DJ, told the Philly Voice he and a friend phoned authorities after seeing the images on a Facebook post, calling the vandalism a hate crime.

“I think the messaging was very clear,” Baker said. “(Whether) it was malicious intent or stupid kids who wanted to be provocative, it still has the same effect.”

Baker also said he contacted the Anti-Defamation League about the images.

Justice Ginsburg sends out dire warning about the new Supreme Court ruling in Wisconsin election case

Published

on

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg issued a disturbing dissent on Monday as the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court intervened in Tuesday’s upcoming Wisconsin election with a move she warned could result in “massive disenfranchisement.”

The election, which includes the Democratic presidential primary, a Wisconsin Supreme Court race, and a raft of other local campaigns, has become embroiled in controversy as observers warn the coronavirus pandemic threatens the safety and integrity of the election.
