Images of Canberra – Nazi Gnome at Floriade

By johnboy - 24 September 2008 28

There’s no immediate explanation as to why this little fella’s adorning Floriade.

Anyone have any theories?

(Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to )

What’s Your opinion?

Damn I love the German language, especially when someone calls someone else nasty names ^_^
Any good places that are free/easy to learn it?

Sid Vicous used to wear a t-shirt with a swastica on it… maybe a 1970’s politically uncorrect punk gnome?

I hate gnomes.

I think that gladiator might have been a teeny bit classier.

Yeah, I think Romper Stomper is the theme here.

Romper Stomper?

That would further explain the Russell Crowe connection given the Rabbitohs beanie.

Has anyone noticed the Anarchist symbol on his/her (you just don’t know these days) right arm?

Whilst it is correct that the NDSP symbol forms a diamond, you cannot deny the colours (red, white & black).

Having lived in Germany and having an understanding of modern German culture, whoever painted this is a simple Arschloch und Dummkopf. If this is meant to be a parody, then it fails horribly considering the issues with the NPD and racial issues that face current Germany (Mostly in the former DDR states and South Germany- basically the equivalent to Australia’s Bogans).

If it’s someone who’s actually a neo, well sorry mate but a real Neo Nazi would never get a Anarchist tattoo… nochmal: Arshloch. Also going to prove that every and any neo-Nazi is as unintelligent as a particular female vice-presidential candidate, possibly even dumber (actually that’s really not possible is it?).

Looking a bit dark? Adolf wouldn’t like that. And he definitely wouldn’t like the anarchy logo.

He’s a very confused little gnome – trying to be both an anarchist and also a follower of Der Furher.

The symbol on his belt isn’t the Swastika of the NDSP. Their swastika is rotated so that it’s borders would form a diamond rather than a square.

wait for a wowser to notice it and complain, only a matter of time…

johnboy 5:26 pm 24 Sep 08

And a barely plucked mono-brow…

But I’ll concede the coachwood and myrtle might be a shoutout to South Sydney.

Aurelius 5:17 pm 24 Sep 08

He’s got rather dark skin for a Nazi.

Romper Stomper?
