A display featuring a “Donald Trump” flag next to a Nazi Youth Flag has set the internet abuzz after a photo of the display was published on social media this weekend.
A Trump supporter, who is a vendor at the Bloomsburg Fair in central Pennsylvania, displayed the “Donald Trump – Make America Great Again” flag adjacent to a replica of the Hitler Youth Flag, triggering a social media storm.
The vendor also displayed the Confederate flag along with a bumper sticker that said: “AIDS cures f*gs.”
Here are some of the responses from locals on Facebook:
“My father who fought through the Second World War must be rolling in his grave to think that the Nazi flag flies at the Bloomsburg fair. Unless the fair officials make a public statement denouncing this practice and remove the vendors. I will never attend this event again.”
“Dude…my childhood is crushed… My all time favorite fair…in the town next to my hometown…is selling Nazi flags…right next to Trump flags… Incredibly angered and saddened that the board of the Bloomsburg Fair allows this vendor to sell such wares. I will never return to the fair. Shame because as my friends know…I would drive for hours and spend hundreds just to go almost every year.”
“I am so angry I’m in tears. This is happening in our backyard. That flag stands for hatred and genocide. This is what Donald Trump is doing to America, this is the kind of deplorable person his campaign has empowered. If you cannot see that, you are part of the problem.”
The Fair organizers have responded with a written statement:
“We were initially unaware of the flag and other merchandise being displayed by a vendor on our fairgrounds. As soon as we were made aware of it early this morning, we took the appropriate action with the vendor to remove those items.”
Wow. Did somebody say, “deplorables”?
