Nazi Christmas ornaments and KKK robes sold openly at Kentucky gun show

A gun show in Kentucky has come under fire after allowing the sale of Nazi memorabilia and a Klansman’s robe, reports WAVE 3.

The event happened at National Gun Day which was held at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville.

Among the vendors was Florida’s Walter Kanzler Guns and Militaria, which features a Nazi hat with a swastika on its homepage.

Among Walter Kanzler’s offerings were World War II Christmas ornaments that featured swastikas, which were for sale on the same day that an anti-Semitic gunman killed 11 at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The Klansman’s robe was for sale not far from the Louisville-area Kroger where two black shoppers were killed in what appears to be a racist attack.

The Courier Journal showed the Kentucky State Fair Board photos of the memorabilia, which is now eyeing a ban on Nazi memorabilia.

“The most upsetting part is what the meaning of these symbols have and to allow those to be sold on Kentucky Venues property when I’m chairman of the board, I really find that offensive to myself as well, it’s just not right,” said the board’s chairman Dr. Mark Lynn said.

Reached for comment, Walter Kanzler said there’s “no political agenda” and that it represented an “interest in history.”

In a letter sent to the National Governors Association, an industry group representing many of the largest retailers in the U.S. asked the country's governors to mandate and enforce rules requiring people to wear masks at all times while in public.

With the coronavirus spiking dramatically in some states, the Retail Industry Leaders Association, which represents Target and Home Depot among others, sent the letter on Monday, reports CBS News.

One major issue has been the increasing incidence of angry shoppers attacking employees due to non-standardized rules on masks.

Trump is betting on reckless approach to win in November

Published

on

On the Fourth of July, a day meant to celebrate American independence, Donald Trump once again focused on creating a racist spectacle. Despite concerns about spreading the coronavirus and starting wildfires, Trump insisted on having a fireworks-heavy celebration at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, which was clearly a campaign rally no matter how much the taxpayers were bilked for it. Of course, the president's speech was pure culture-war vitriol, complete with classic Trumpian projection, this time when he called anti-racist activists "fascists," an extraordinary word choice that obviously better suits him.
