By the way -- to those of you who objected -- don't worry, I'm unlikely to do this again. This is WAY more work than I realized it would be.

Not Trump's fault and not racism per hotel owner so per thread rules I get to

Israel has lodged official complaints after a hotel in Switzerland posted signs telling Jewish guests to shower before using the pool and restricted their access to a kitchen freezer.

The Paradies apartment hotel in the Alpine village of Arosa, in eastern Switzerland, has been accused of antisemitism after a guest posted to Facebook a picture of a notice near the hotel pool.

“To our Jewish guests, women, men and children, please take a shower before you go swimming,” it said, adding: “If you break the rules I’m forced to [close] the swimming pool for you.”

A second notice, in the kitchen, instructed “our Jewish guests” that they could only access the facility’s freezer between 10 and 11am and between 4.30 and 5.30pm. “I hope you understand that our team does not like being disturbed all the time,” it said.

The story was published by Israeli papers, prompting a harsh reaction from Israeli officials.
As Bibi Jr says, neo-nazi's are a thing of the past, so this is a big nothingburger.

Georgia’s Stone Mountain park has denied the Ku Klux Klan’s request to burn a cross at the top of the mountain, where the second KKK was founded in 1915.

Joey Hobbs, of the Sacred Knights’ Ku Klux Klan, submitted a permit application request for 20 people to attend a cross-burning on top of the mountain, which is notorious for being tied to the KKK.

“We will light our cross and 20 minutes later we will be gone,” Hobbs wrote on the permit.

The Stone Mountain Memorial Association this week denied the request for a 21 October cross-burning and said in a statement that it “condemns the beliefs and actions of the Ku Klux Klan and believes the denial of this Public Assembly request is in the best interest of all parties”.

“We don’t want any of these groups at the park, quite frankly,” John Bankhead, a spokesman for the association, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The ACLU might be on the case to fight for their freedoms!

Since this wasn't a hate crime
