Video: New York Cabbie Fights For Right To Wear Nazi Armband - So much fail

If I could speak directly to this guy, I would say, "Mr. Diaz, as a fellow Latino who also has African heritage but in my case I have Jewish heritage to add to that, you would also be sent to the gas chambers if Nazis ever rose to power in the country where you live. They consider you untermenschen. Whatever help you need, please get it."
------------------------------------------------------
As CBS 2ís Lou Young reported Friday evening, Gabriel Diaz, 26, spoke outside of his familyís home in the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx, after he was suspended for wearing a swastika while driving the cab.

ďI am. Iím a National Socialist Ė what you guys call a Nazi. I am. Iím a believer of it,Ē Diaz said.

Not just once, but multiple times, photos sent to the Anti-Defamation League and to the Taxi and Limousine Commission sparked an investigation.

ďI donít hate Jews. Iím critical of them, but I donít hate them. That doesnít mean that Iím anti-Semitic. That donít make me a hater,Ē Diaz said. ďWho says you have to be white to be a National Socialist? You donít have to be white, it can by anybody.Ē

2. I recall a few years back on some kind of social documentary..

They found a black man strutting around in Atlanta--IIRC--wearing a Confederate uniform and carrying the southern battle flag.

The mind boggles at the ability of some people to self identify with groups that hate them. I throw the Log Cabin Republicans into that admittedly sweeping generality. If this young Latino thinks that "real" Nazis give a shit about anybody without lily white skin and pure blood, he's saturated in denial.

6. jeez, I hope he doesn't have a family of terrorized children in his home.

He's lucky I'm not his boss, I wouldn't just 'suspend' him.
