Nazi Salute is an Artistic Expression
All around the world the Nazi salute is seen as a controversial sign and is avoided at all costs. However, that did not stop actor Jonathan Meese from performing the hail on stage during an event at Kassel University. He was being charged by prosecutors in Germany for a fine of $16,000; but he argued free speech. He believes that he used the Nazi salute and swastika in his works to mock the symbols. Does that make it okay to "mock" a group responsible for the death of nearly six million people?
