School in hot water after telling students swastika is symbol of peace
By Chris Perez
December 1, 2015 | 12:31am

Administrators at an elite Bronx private school plan to hold an assembly to apologize to students for telling them swastikas were primarily symbols of peace.

Parents said Monday that officials at Ethical Culture Fieldston School sent emails over the weekend mentioning how The Post revealed that at least eight swastikas had been drawn across the campus — and that a student scrawled, “Hitler rocks!” on the cover of a notebook.

Administrators are also now considering adjusting the curriculum at the $45,100-a-year school to be more sensitive, a parent said.

“People were enraged when they read The Post’s story, and a lot of parents who didn’t know got on board and reached out to the school because of it,” the parent explained.

“I think The Post did a service. The story . . . sparked a shift in the community.”

Parents and students said Fieldston head of school Damian Fernandez and middle-school principal Kevin Jacobson both mentioned The Post in e-mails explaining the situation that had been unfolding on campus.

Swastikas Carved Into Dorm Room Door At Rowan University
December 8, 2015 2:28 PM By David Madden

GLASSBORO, NJ (CBS) – Rowan University officials are dealing with a case of hate speech in a college dorm late last week. :eek:

Several swastikas were carved into a door at Chestnut Hall, a facility that houses freshmen and sophomores at the Glassboro school.

“There were some carvings on a couple of the doors,” Rowan spokesman Joe Cardona told KYW Newsradio, “but none of the students in those rooms identified themselves as being Jewish or anything.”

The markings were quickly removed from the door.

School officials met with students in that dorm suite to attempt to gather information on who might be responsible. Given security in the building, Cardona believes a student or a friend might be behind this.

“The student would go through a judicial process, if it is in fact a student,” Cardona said, “while someone from the outside obviously we’d have to do a no trespass thing.” :rolleyes:

The university also sent out an e-mail to all students that an incident like this is “completely inconsistent with Rowan’s values.”

This guy hawking Nazi relics is pissing off flea market shoppers

A vendor has been selling Nazi memorabilia at a Manhattan flea market, outraging :rolleyes: shoppers stunned to see the hateful relics :rolleyes: hawked out in the open.

The man has set up shop at the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, offering medals, pins, knives, rings, coins, images of Adolf Hitler, and clippings from Hitler’s wartime magazine, Signal.

There’s even a massive metallic Reichsadler — the Nazis’ Imperial Eagle emblem — hanging from his display on the block-long stretch of West 39th Street, where the offerings are typically clothing, jewelry, crafts and other knickknacks.

Approached Sunday by The Post, the man, who refused to give his name, shrugged off suggestions that he was doing anything offensive.

“I buy this stuff at estate sales. I have no connection to it,” he said, adding that his grandfather was Jewish. :rolleyes: “I don’t only sell this. I sell Jewish, American, whatever I can get. Collector’s items, that’s all it is.”

He said he started offering the Nazi loot about six months ago after he mistakenly bought medals at an estate sale and realized he could turn a profit.

“A lot of Jewish people buy it,” he said. “I was at an auction, and there was a [Nazi] medal for $8,000. A rabbi bought it, believe it or not.”

Shoppers were aghast.

“It’s very bad, awful, horrible,” Manana Guginava, a tour guide, said after surveying the wares.

These people who are advertising Hitler and his signs and speeches — these people must be taken to prison :mad:,” added Guginava, 68, who said her family fled Romania after the Nazis invaded.

“It’s awful. You can’t do everything for the sake of money.”

Another shopper, Emily Shwartz, 25, said, “That’s super upsetting, especially being Jewish myself and having family killed in concentration camps.” :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

A shopper who gave her name only as Susan T. fumed: “It’s disgusting. It’s inappropriate, especially in New York, because we’re so ethnically and religiously diverse.” :rolleyes:

“So many people that suffered through concentration camps live here in New York.”

Last week, The Post reported that vendors at the flea market, which sits between Ninth and 10th avenues, claim they are regularly harassed by its operators, Alan and Helene Boss.

The vendors say the couple rules with an iron fist, terrorizing sellers by upending tables and yelling racist epithets.

The couple could not be immediately reached for comment.

Second Hate Incident In Rowan University Dorm
December 17, 2015 5:10 PM By David Madden

GLASSBORO, N.J., (CBS) — It’s happened again. :rolleyes:

Swastikas appearing on the doors of a college dorm at Rowan University.

It’s the second time in a week the hate symbols have shown up inside Chestnut Hall. The latest incident, a week ago, prompted an e-mail blast from the University President saying, in effect, they won’t tolerate this kind of behavior. :ha:

“It’s an inclusive and welcoming place for all,” Rabbi Hersh Loschak, co-director of a Jewish center at Rowan, told KYW Newsradio, “and I fear that we have to reclaim that status at our campus and make sure that nothing like this ever happens again.” :p

Loschak says plans are in the works for a couple events to make their point in the spring. Classes are winding down for the holidays. He also believes University officials are doing all they can to find those responsible. So far, those officials say there are no arrests :mad: in the case.

Hipster-hating vandal scrawls ‘die yuppies’ at Brooklyn construction site
By Kenneth Garger
February 2, 2016 | 4:34pm

Surveillance footage of a suspect who vandalized a construction zone in Brooklyn.

A vandal apparently irked at the gentrification of a Brooklyn neighborhood broke into a construction site and scrawled into wet cement “Die Yuppies” along with a swastika, cops said.

The suspect was caught on camera stepping over netting that lines the site on Myrtle Avenue near Stanhope Street in Bushwick about 1:45 a.m. last Friday.

He proceeded to write out the obscenities, while an onlooker stood nearby on the sidewalk. The two then walked away together.

The suspect has long hair and was last seen wearing a dark coat over a flannel and tight dark jeans.

By David Chang
Published 3 hours ago


An investigation is underway after someone drew a swastika and wrote a racial slur in the snow on top of a car parked near Temple University’s campus. :eek:

A member of Temple's Black Student Union :rolleyes: spotted the car Friday morning parked on the 2100 block of North Carlisle Street. Both the N Word and a swastika were drawn into the snow on the car’s windshield and hood. The member took a photo of the messages and the picture was eventually shared on social media.

Temple University spokesperson Brandon Lausch confirmed with NBC10 that police are investigating the incident.

“Temple University condemns the use of these symbols and language in the strongest terms,” Lausch said in a released statement. “The incident has been reported to Temple University Police and is actively being investigated. The university will make every effort to identify those responsible, and will hold them accountable.” :eek:

If you have any information, please call Temple Police at 215-204-1234. Lausch also says Temple students who want to speak to a university administrator about the incident should call the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL) at 215-204-5509.

Hate-crime suspect attacks cops with knife, calls them ‘Nazis’
By Tina Moore

A hate-spewing madman attacked two detectives with a knife in Harlem Wednesday while threatening to kill cops who were at his apartment investigating a series of anti-Semitic letters that had been left throughout the building, police said.

Detectives from the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force were at 1787 Madison Ave. serving a search warrant about 4 p.m. when Oliver Stewart-Vukicevic, 28, jumped out at them and slashed one of them in the head with a knife, cops said.

Vukicevic resisted arrest while shouting “F— you, Nazi Germans. I’m going to kill that motherf—— cop.”

The cop who was slashed was treated for his injuries and released from Harlem Hospital. The second cop injured his knee while helping to subdue Vukicevic.

The officers were at the building investigating a series of hate crimes in which anti-Semitic letters were found in hallways in the building.

Cops found more than 30 swastikas :eek: and hate filled letters in Vukicevic’s bedroom. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital for observation in stable condition.

He was charged with attempted murder, assault on a police officer and possession of a weapon, police said. He was also charged with 15 counts of stalking, 15 counts of aggravated harassment, police sources said.

2 Northwestern Students Charged With 'Offensive Graffiti'
Published 6 hours ago

Matthew Kafker (left), 18, and Anthony Morales (right), 19, were charged Saturday in connection with 'offensive graffiti found in a Northwestern University chapel.

Two Northwestern University students have been charged in connection with graffiti found at a university chapel on Saturday.

Anthony Morales, 19, and Matthew Kafker, 18, were arrested Saturday and charged with institutional vandalism, hate crime to a place of worship and criminal damage to property, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The graffiti was found Thursday night inside the Alice Millar Chapel, located at 1870 Sheridan Rd. in Evanston. Police reviewed surveillance video of the incident, according to an email statement sent to students from university kike president Morton Schapiro.

“On behalf of the entire Northwestern community, I express our shock and dismay at the abhorrent act of vandalism committed last night,” Schapiro said.

The church walls and organ were covered in racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, and other offensive graffiti :p, the email said. The two allegedly spray-painted a swastika and lines over the photos of Muslim students.

But that wasn't all. Spray-painted penises were found around the church, along with the word “Trump” in a stairwell, the Tribune reported.

Northwestern University spokesman Bob Rowley said both students have been placed on interim suspension, which prevents them from being on campus, according to The Daily Northwestern.

“This disgusting act of hatred violates the deepest values and core commitments of our University and is an affront to us all,” Shapiro said in his statement.

Both men are being held in lieu of $50,000 bail, and according to the Cook County Sheriff's office, both have bonded out.

It was unclear whether Morales and Kafker have attorneys.
