Joseph Sincavage is a very confused TEApublican. The 73-year-old former Marine is flying a Nazi flag alongside the American flag, A U.S.M.C. flag, and a Vatican flag on his Connecticut home. Tea Party “patriots” have often used an upside-down U.S. flag as a symbol of “distress” which basically means they’re racist sore-losers, angry that they lost big in 2008 and 2012. But the Nazi flag is something new.
Sincavage says “I am going to keep flying [it] until Obama changes his policies, resigns or gets impeached.”
So what has Sincavage so upset that the only way he can accurately express his anger is to hang a symbol of racism, bigotry, genocide, war, and death?
According to The Stratford Star, “He said he is flying the flag as a symbol of a totalitarian state, which he said Germany became, and which he feels the United States is becoming under President Barack Obama.” The Stratford Start reported “(Sincavage) is flying the symbol of totalitarianism next to the American flag, a symbol of the U.S. Constitution, to show the contrast.”
But he loves the Jewish people.
“I have no animosity toward Jewish people,” he told The Stratford Star. “They too are being given an unfair deal by President Obama. The founder of my religion was a Jew.”
When asked by The Stratford Star what policies of President Obama he specifically opposes, he launched into a Glenn Beck-type Tea Party rant claiming, “Obama told the Israelis not to attack Iran while he was running for election. Sincavage believes Iran is building nuclear weapons and threatened to annihilate Israel. He also repeated some well-used Fox News/Tea Party lies saying that President Obama refuses to “use the word terrorist” (Benghazi truther) and said that Obama has a “general disregard for the U.S. Constitution.”
And there you have it folks. “Patriotism” Tea Party-style.
