Nazi salute

Apple is taking a stand against hate groups and white nationalist websites by blocking Apple pay support on the websites that sell goods and receiving payments via Apple pay.

Websites selling sweaters with Nazi logos, bumper sticker depicting a car crashing into protesters (Reference of an incident that happened at Charlottesville), and T-shirts emblazoned with "white pride."


Apple is yet to publish an official statement on blocking of the websites, but according to the company’s guidelines for Apple Pay, the payment platform cannot be used on sites promoting hate, violence or intolerance.

The company CEO, Tim Cook in the wake of the violence in the country posted a tweet that reads;

We’ve seen the terror of white supremacy & racist violence before.It's a moral issue - an affront to America. We must all stand against it.

Other brands fighting against hate white supremacist websites include Godaddy and Google, after they removed the alt-right website, Daily stormer from Godaddy, while Google also blocks registration of the website after a blog on the website in the wake of Charlottesville violence.

Uber, Facebook, Twitter, Mailchimp and Wordpress have all taken actions via their platform after the attack. People trying to give out houses to White supremacist coming for the rally were also banned on the Airbnb website.

A child that is not well-trained from home by the parents will definitely learn the lesson the hard way from strangers in the public. This is the story of an American tourist that travelled up to Germany, only to give the Nazi salute outside a cafe in Dresden, and was beaten up by a passer-by. The police also confirmed the report on Sunday.


According to the police, the tourist had left a cafe called Europe in the Neustadt district of Dresden, a popular student meeting spot, and liberal part of town.

The man who seems to be drunk, identified as 41-year-old American suffered minor injuries, while the stranger who beat him up fled the scene.

The police are now looking for the stranger for causing personal injury, while the American tourist is under investigation for violating German laws that prohibit Nazi symbols in the country.

Though there has been a fascination from Americans about the Nazi salute, and praises to Adolf Hitler by White supremacist, the Nazi salute - a right arm raised, and palm down as a devotion to Adolf Hitler can carry a prison sentence of 3 years, though German courts often give a fine instead.
