Via Towleroad comes news out of Arizona that could prove that there might be some very ardent fans of “Saturday Night Live” — this morning swastikas made of refried beans were found smeared on the Capitol building grounds in what is certainly a response to last week’s passing of the state’s racist anti-immigrant bill. Which “Saturday Night Live” this weekend compared to Nazism.
In addition to the state House and Senate doors being smeared, beans were used to write “AZ=Nazi” on the sidewalk as well, again with a second refried beans swastika.
“That is what happens when there is so much fear and there is so much disappointment,” said Gustavo Ramirez, a protester from California. “The laws that have been passed, they are Nazi laws. They are not considering humanity. They are a crime against humanity.” Ramirez clarifies that while he does not support the new law, he also does not support the vandalism.
Investigators are looking into the case. Watch the local news coverage above.
Swastikas were, unfortunately, a symbol of choice this weekend.
