Chinese tourists can act like complete fuckwits but this is a bit mean, isn't it? how were they to know?

There's nothing quite as anti-fascist as arresting foreigners for breaking domestic laws restricting public expression.

I am eagerly awaiting Trump's tweet on this serious matter in international relations and conflicts.

I don't buy that any more than I bought it in the case of the American teen that got caned for graffiti-ing in - was it Malaysia? I think so.

Anyway, you don't bring your country's laws with you when you travel. Do a little research before you go and don't be a jackass. No sympathy from me.

They should've known better...but it's still funny and I'd like them to have got away with it.

I think the authorities should have a look at that Tour Brochure.

Is it only me who reads the words"Chinese" and "Nazi" in the same sentence and thinks of this

I wish they'd arrest all the fucking Chinese tourists that come to Canada and chew through all our trees.

Ok, sure it's funny, but if nothing was done the headline would have been "Chinese do Nazi salutes at Reichstag and Hitler-loving German authorities turn a blind eye."

It's good. The world needs a reminder once in a while. That is if this is reported on Chinese news.

(Of course, this is kind of antic I and my pal would get up to if unleashed before the actual Reichstag with cameras.)

And if not for them doing the deed and then them getting arrested, who would know that 40-something Chinese guys had a sense of humor.

Yeah. Until he found out it was a Jewish shepherd.
