The same ragged little group of Nazis who have tried to look scary outside a Jamaica Plain bookstore spent some time last month outside Brigham and Women's Hospital hiding behind their neck gaiters and holding a sign about the hospital killing White people.
And so it is, nearly 77 years after Hitler blew his brains out, Boston City Council President Ed Flynn yesterday issued a statement denouncing Nazis and their fellow travelers.
Flynn said he's had enough with Nazis and their sympathizers - from Charlottesville and Orlando marchers to 1/6 insurrectionists to Maus-banning and book burning Tennesseans to swastika scrawlers at Boston-area high schools and Curry College.
It is extremely disturbing to hear about the increased activities from neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups locally, although we should not be surprised, unfortunately. We continue to see more and more disgusting incidents across our country that occur openly in broad daylight that include Nazis flags and symbols of hate and bigotry. ...
It is incumbent upon all of us to acknowledge and call out the growing extremism and creeping hate in our country when we see it. We must always stand with the Jewish community and our communities of color, educate our children about the horrors of the past so that history does not repeat itself, and make clear to neo-Nazis and white supremacist groups that they are not welcome and will never represent our values.
