If you don't think America has a Nazi problem, look no further than Kentucky where you can openly buy KKK robes and Nazi Christmas memorabilia at gun shows. This disturbing story was reported on the same day 11 Jews were murdered at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh by an anti semitic right wing terrorist.

A KKK robe and Christmas ornaments with swastikas on them were for sale during a gun show at the Kentucky Expo Center over the last weekend of October.

The leader of the Fair Board said he’s outraged and has called an emergency meeting in response.

National Gun Day at the Kentucky Expo Center brought vendors from all over the country, including Walter Kanzler Guns and Militaria from Florida.

The collector was selling World War II Christmas ornaments adorned with swastikas.

WAVE reported that "on his website, the collector said there’s no political agenda behind his sales, just an interest in history," and that Kanzler told them that he had "no comment" on the issue. Specifically, the site states that: 

Based in Key Largo, Florida, USA, Walter has been active in the Militaria and Gun Collecting community since the 1960's. He is a licensed firearms dealer and exporter with expertise in all eras and all the major wars and countries.

Walter specializes in German and Allied states from pre Napoleonic times through the 1880's. He also has knowledge of the major powers through World War I and II. His expertise covers guns, bayonets, swords, daggers, uniforms, helmets, badges, medals and documents. etc.

The fact that the Kanzler felt comfortable selling Nazi ornaments and KKK robes is a testament to just how toxic the political climate is in America. To openly sell these items means there is an active market for them, and while Kanzler claims that there is "no political agenda" behind his business, the fact that he is profiting off of symbols of extreme hate and genocide makes it even worse. 

Make no mistake about it -- this is Trump's America, where racism and Nazi fetishes are now acceptable, and anyone opposed to it is guilty of "identity politics" etc, etc. The only way to stop this madness is for the left to regain power in America and make sure these extremists understands they will never be tolerated by mainstream society. And that means voting November 6th, especially if you are a minority because your life quite literally depends on it
