Tiger Tank themed parade float causes controversy


Obviously, this is not a real tiger tank.  This is a float that was part of a carnival parade in the town of Steinkirchen bei Pfaffenhofen.  The message on the side of the float translates to “asylum defense” and is meant as an anti-immigration message.  German authorities are investigating whether or not to press charges against the float builders.  German law prohibits the public display of the Nazi swastika, although there is no law against public display of the Balkendreuz.  More here.
