Hate and Intolerance Bring the Neighborhood together

In what was a quick show of solidarity through the Church Hill Neighborhood Facebook group, neighbors banded together to quickly communicate and come up with a plan of action to clean the Nazi SS symbol. This was first found by Arielle G. on her morning run and then pictures were uploaded not hours later by Michael B.

Please see the photos below:

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

First They Came by Pastor Martin Niemoller

Thank you to all of you who acted quickly in the face of intolerance. It matters.

Am I missing something? I don’t see a swastika in these photos.

Church Hill People’s News I’m aware of the SS symbol. That is not a swastika. Just be accurate.

Ask a doctor if literally dying is right for you.

Vic Rejuney you’re a real simpleton. Why not be a real man and wait for the facts to come out before making judgment? I can only only assume you’re the perp given your adamant stance on its validity. That or you’re just extremely naive. How many times have we heard about this #fakenews before we then found out it was a total hoax? My bet is: it was “Simple Vic,” with the spray paint, in Chimborazo.

Glad I clicked on the link because I saw S.S. VA and thought “hey, it’s me!” as my initials are S.S. and I do rep VA ??????

(That being said I don’t condone defacing anyone’s property. Just to make that clear.)

The SS was in another photo that Michael Brown took time today to start cleaning.

I deal with gang issues as part of my employment. Hate to break it to yall but that’s not neo-nazi symbology folks.. that’s almost surely your local Surenos13 gang from Southside. The xiii and use of the x in 80X=804 are your indicators in addition to the comparable type of art flourishing along the Jeff Davis to Hull street corridor.

Guys, clean it and move on quietly.
By making such a big deal about it, you are giving the mom’s basement dwelling toad what he wants: notoriety.

This isn’t a white supremacist group, it is a sad outcast boy or two.

Jesse I might stop short of calling this “Art” but thanks for bringing this down to the ground. A previous poster sought swastikas and anti semitic language to justify a racism claim and I agree- I doubt these morons ever heard of Judaism let alone Hitler and would piss themselves if they saw a skinhead. Still, many thanks to everyone who got out there and scrubbed.

Church Hill People’s News no, your whole premise is incorrect. That’s obvious Hispanic gang graffiti, it just sort of looks like a German army unit symbol from the 40s that no modern neo nazi would use without the more obvious swastika present. People see what they want to see.
