Nazis are Cowards

Three masked men carrying Nazi flags tried to disrupt a Hanukkah ceremony in Connecticut, but families at the event didn’t let the protesters dampen their holiday spirit.

Fairfield First Selectman Kenneth Flatto says he and others at Sunday’s event at the Sherman Green gazebo ignored the men while lighting a menorah on the third night of Hanukkah.

The three men stayed about 20 yards from the gazebo and shouted obscenities. Flatto says he called police and the men fled when officers arrived. Police followed the car, but it’s unclear whether they caught the men.

Rabbi Shlame Landa organized the ceremony for Chabad of Fairfield. He says the Hanukkah celebrators battled darkness by not backing down from spreading goodness and light, during the festival of lights.
