A group of high-school students in Southern California gave a Nazi salute and sang a Nazi song during an awards ceremony last year, according to video reivewed by The Daily Beast.
The video shows about 10 members of the boys’ water polo team at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, California, throwing the salute once used to greet Adolf Hitler while singing a Nazi marching song played for German troops during World War II.
The video was uploaded to Instagram by one of the athletes, who also posted lyrics to the song in his Instagram bio.
There’s some means by which they acquired knowledge about the song and associated Nazi issues,” he said.
This is the second recent incident involving Nazi portrayals by students in Southern California.
Like Pacifica’s water polo team, the students in the videos were seen extending their arms in Nazi salutes.
“Once you see those artifacts, you realize what these symbols like the German nationalist song really represent. »
