Breitbart.com reports, Dec. 30, 2013, that the Jewish human rights group Simon Wiesenthal Center is demanding an apology from San Antonio Spurs superstar point guard Tony Parker for “repeatedly making a neo-Nazi hand gesture:
As a leading sports figure on both sides of the Atlantic, Parker has a special moral obligation to disassociate himself from a gesture that the government of France has identified as anti-Semitic.
Here are 4 images of Parker and teammate Boris Diaw, a Frenchman, making the offensive gesture:
The offensive hand gesture is called the “Quenelle” gesture–a right arm extended towards the ground, palm opened and the other one bent across his chest touching his right upper arm. The gesture has been labelled as a “reversed Nazi salute,” made famous a few years ago by Dieudonné, a French comedian from African background who is under fire in France for his repeated use of the symbol.
Haven’t we seen the Quenelle neo-Nazi salute before, in one of FOTM’s caption contests?
Here it is:
Why isn’t the Simon Wiesenthal Center demanding an apology from Obama, Jay Z, and Beyoncé (I don’t know who the other guy is) for making the same neo-Nazi racist salute that Tony Parker made?
Stinking “liberals” and their stinking double standard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
H/t FOTM’s sharp-eyed Christy
