Hillary Clinton rightly called Trump supporters "deplorable" during her campaign - and she was absolutely correct.
One of them turned up at the Sanders rally in Phoenix on Friday.
Robert Sterkeson, 37, a self-described Nazi, unfurled a swastika flag at Sen. Bernie Sanders’ rally at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
Sanders, who is Jewish, had relatives killed in the Holocaust and said he “speaks for the families” of the Americans who died battling “against fascism” during World War II.
Sterkeson said he had no regrets in an interview with The Arizona Republic on Friday. He made ugly references to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and said Jews should not be allowed to run for president. He also made personally disparaging remarks about Sanders. He said that he also attended President Donald Trump’s rally in the same arena two weeks earlier. He also made anti-Semitic remarks about Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law.
Sterkeson is the founder of Bomb Islam, an Islamophobic group. Not long after the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum unfurled its flag, Sterkeson started shouting, "Heil Hitler," witnesses said.
There were 1,879 recorded anti-Semitic incidents in the United States in 2018, a near-historic high, according to the Anti-Defamation League, an anti-hate organization.
