This morning, we pointed out that State Sen. Janne Myrdal had shared an image of a gay Nazi flag on her personal Facebook page. The image accompanied an article titled, “The Forgotten Gays Part II: Is the LGBT On Crack?”
After we pointed it out, she deleted it. Now she claims that she posted it by accident:
“Recently I reposted a story on my personal Facebook wall that had an image attached to the link that I was unaware of; I have since deleted the post. As a daughter of a family that suffered under the said image, I deplore this image and I would never post this image on purpose.”
It’s hard to believe she didn’t notice the gay Nazi flag for a few reasons. First of all, it’s a gay Nazi flag. What could be more noticeable than that? Second, she “liked” the article on another person’s Facebook page.
The article comes from a website run by Thomas S Schmitz, a right-wing activist in California who Myrdal met with last February. Here they are having lunch:
According to Myrdal’s bio, she was born in Norway to a family that “experienced dire hardship during the Nazi occupation.”
