A flyer recently placed on parking meters in downtown Grand Rapids pictures President Barack Obama next to a Nazi swastika, threatening that a “Holocaust is coming.”
“Obama is a puppet,” reads the handout that decries the Affordable Care and the National Defense Authorization acts. “Hitler’s Nazi Germany has been revived in the U.S. and the target is Americans.”
The pamphlet disturbed 59-year-old Vern Jones when the Georgetown Township man parked his car along Campau Avenue NW before a meeting last week. Jones went to feed the meter and the flyer blocked the coin slot of his timer as well as others nearby.
