Swastikas at Town Hall Meetings

Last week, Nancy Pelosi claimed that right wing zealots were showing up at town hall meetings with swastikas to disrupt the dialog at the meetings.

Aside from the obvious hypocrisy of her claiming to actually want dialog (which is what many Americans are trying to do), I'm interested in the swastikas comment. Has anyone seen any actual swastikas being displayed by right wingers trying to disrupt any of these meetings? Is that really going on?

I have yet to see a single image or video clip of someone at a Town Hall meeting during these past couple of months in which the health care bill is being discussed that shows anyone displaying swastikas.

Anyone? Anyone?

I'm over Pelosi and often wonder why she even gets press time. She has zero credibility in my book. But that doesn't stop her enormous gaping maw from sharing her thoughts on everything under the sun either.

I have yet to see any either. I've heard of a couple instances in which they were used to compare Obama to Hitler, but that is second hand. If it were true, I think the pictures would be serious media fodder.

I saw a swastika at a tea party, but it had a red circle around it with a slash through it. So yes, I saw a swastika, but the message portrayed was that we didn't want President Obama's National Socialist agenda in America.

There is a video piece posted at http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2009/08/05/pelosi_town_hall_protesters_are_carrying_swastikas.html

According to cousinBob.com, "Turns out someone had a sign depicting a swastika with the international "NO" symbol crossing it out in protest of her fascist policies. Seems Frau Pelosi saw only that which sets her heart all atwitter."

Not quite the first hand account you are seeking.
