Anti-Lockdown Protestors Who Were Praised By Trump Caught Carrying Pro-Nazi Signs Against Jewish Illinois Gov.



Protestors continue to take the streets to protest against stay-at-home orders from governors across the country. These protestors have been praised by Republican lawmakers and Donald Trump himself.

On Friday, cameras captured protestors opposing the extension of Illinois Governor JB Pritzker’s stay-at-home order with pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic signs.

One sign read, “Heil, Pritzker” with a large swastika next to it, and another read, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” the German phrase for “Work Makes You Free,” which appeared over the entrance to Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps.

These signs were all the more ominous seeing as Pritzker is Jewish.

It’s shocking to see people protesting in Illinois, as it’s the fourth U.S. state with the highest number of coronavirus cases (56,055) and deaths (2,457). The state had its highest number of new cases (3,137) on Friday, the same day the protest occurred.

Jackie Fletcher, the woman holding the swastika sign, told her local NBC news affiliate that she had “Re-Open Illinois” written on the other side of her sign because “some people get touchy about swastikas.”

“I’m here to protest the loss of our rights,” she continued. “We’re protesting for our First Amendment and other things. Our speech isn’t really being prohibited, but our freedom is. We’re unable to leave the house and have to wear a mask.”
