That makes sense (if you are an idiot)
Business Insider reports a San Francisco man flew a Nazi flag over his house to protest Donald Trump’s win:
An unidentified San Francisco homeowner flew a Nazi flag over his house after Donald Trump was declared President-Elect, according to SFist, who received a tip about the flag.
The act of political commentary didn’t go over well with the neighbors.
In a video taken by SF Chronicle reporter Michael Bodley and posted on Twitter, the homeowner explained to a neighbor that it was a “comment on our new president elect.” He compared Trump to Il Duce, the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, “but the Italians did not have as good of a flag.”
The San Francisco Chronicle stated the obvious, San Francisco homeowner’s Nazi flag protest of Trump backfires:
Flying a Nazi flag at his home in San Francisco’s Dolores Heights on Wednesday was Frederick Roeber’s attempt to make a social comment on President-elect Donald Trump.
But the 48-year-old quickly realized the display was misguided when neighbors spotted the ominous swastika and immediately confronted him in the street outside the house.
Roeber, who is retired and lives in the storybook-esq home on the corner of Sanchez and 21st streets, said he didn’t like Trump’s comments about Muslims and Mexican immigrants during the election.
Frederick Roeber, 48, briefly flew a Nazi flag above his San Francisco home in what he described as a protest against president-elect Donald Trump. But neighbors soon spotted the swastika and confronted him.
“I am hoping people get that this is a political statement, and that I’m not a Nazi supporter,” Roeber said outside his home’s wrought iron gates and manicured garden. “I’m a little afraid that neighbors will get the wrong idea.”
