Nazi flag is anti-Obama, not anti-Jew, says homeowner

Feels Obama is leading country to totalitarianism

The flag of Nazi Germany flies along with flags of the United States, the U.S. Marines and the Vatican on the front of Joseph Sincavage's house on Connors Lane in Stratford June 27. Sincavage says the message is anti-totalitarianism, not anti-Jew. Greg Reilly photo.

The flag of Nazi Germany flies along with flags of the United States, the U.S. Marines and the Vatican on the front of Joseph Sincavage’s house on Connors Lane in Stratford June 27. Sincavage says the message is anti-totalitarianism, not anti-Jew. Greg Reilly photo.

“I respect your First Amendment rights,” a Connors Lane neighbor told Joseph Sincavage about the Nazi swastika flag hanging off the front of Sincavage’s house.

“I don’t respect Nazism, but I respect your First Amendment rights,” said the neighbor.

That episode, which took place as a reporter was suggesting that passersby could conclude that the flag flyer was anti-Jew, seemed to help Sincavage understand the suggestion.

At that moment, late morning Thursday June 27, Sincavage decided to fly an Israeli flag also, “so Jewish people won’t think I’m mad at them or anything like that.” He immediately ordered one and said, “It’s on the way.”

The flag of Nazi Germany, which symbolizes for many race supremacy, hatred, violence and murder of Jewish people, is being flown not to convey those messages, said Sincavage, a 73-year-old U.S. Marine. He said he is flying the flag as a symbol of a totalitarian state, which he said Germany became, and which he feels the United States is becoming under President Barack Obama.

He said he is flying the symbol of totalitarianism next to the American flag, a symbol of the U.S. Constitution, to show the contrast. Also flying on Sincavage’s house is a flag of the U.S. Marines and a flag of the Vatican.

“I am going to keep flying (the Nazi flag) until Obama changes his policies, resigns or gets impeached,” Sincavage said. “I am going to stay with it on the basis of my First Amendment rights.”

The Stratfordite said he “didn’t realize people would take it as offensive,” and he is not a member of any type of group associated with the flag.

“I have no animosity toward Jewish people,” he told The Star. “They too are being given an unfair deal by President Obama. The founder of my religion was a Jew.”

He said that Obama told the Israelis not to attack Iran while he was running for election. Sincavage added that Iran is building nuclear weapons and has threatened to annihilate Israel, so Obama in interfering with Israel’s ability to defend itself. Sincavage does not approve of those Obama policies either.

Other policies of the Obama administration that Sincavage cites as moving the U.S. toward totalitarianism include what he refers to as having regulators write laws and bypassing Congress with Executive Orders, refusing to use the word terrorists when we have terrorists here, and a general “disregard for the U.S. Constitution.”

Ugh. Disgusted to see that with the vatican flag.


As an aside, someone who lives down the street from me used to have a Soviet flag, which they took down and now have the "dont tread on me" flag.


I don't know what that means.

 I think this guy needs to understand that to the majority of people, seeing the Nazi flag will make them think he is anti-Jew.  That's what the Nazi flag generally stands for.  They will not come to the immediate conclusion that he's just anti-Obama.

The Don't Tread on me is the teaparty flag.

I love people who say "its not meant to offend" all the while knowing that's exactly what it does.

Insensitive piece of shit.

I know. It's that they apparently own both a soviet flag and a tea party flag that throws me off.

Apparently they ran out of the "Stay Away I'm Nuts" flags at the store so he is improvising.  :-)

My theory was that the soviet flag was the son's, and the tea party flag is his parents.

I think most people are nuts, which is why they ran out of those flags at the store.  :-)
