Suspended NYC Cabbie: "I’m A National Socialist—What You Guys Call A Nazi"

The cabbie in the story lost his caqb license for one month because he was wearing a swastika armband in his cab. His defense? First Amendment: "I'm a believer in the National Socialist political ideology."

More offensive ramblings follow. The video is a beautiful mishmash of nonsense.

I figured after my post on the Australian Parliament reached almost 200 responses (a result that mystified me completely), perhaps this little number will do as well.

Happy Sunday!

absurd that I had to look this up for myself on Google just to make sure that it wasn't a joke. I can't believe somebody would be this stupid!

6. "He's just not right in the head"

Parents of Nazi-loving cabbie who wore swastika armband say son is mentally ill
The family of Gabriel Diaz, 27, say the cabbie isn't a racist, he's just 'not right in the head.' His father says he has since burned the armband, and Diaz's mother promises they will get him 'the help he needs.'

8. I find it sad that this is on the news.

This guy obviously isn't all there, and now he is "entertainment" on TV when it's fairly obvious that he needs compassion and help.

11. I'd rather someone who "isn't all there" not be driving public transportation

 

If it takes exposure to keep him out of the drivers seat, then it's for the better.
