Trump Supporter Who Made Nazi Salute Assumed Donald Was A Hitler Descendant

imageCHICAGO, Illinois (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The woman who was photographed making a Nazi salute at the canceled Donald Trump rally in Chicago last week thought that the Republican presidential candidate was a direct descendant of Adolf Hitler.

The photo showing Birgitt Peterson, 69, in a Trump t-shirt, eyes locked with a protester, her right arm raised skyward and palm faced downward, immediately went viral. Netizens commented that the photo is proof of Trump’s ‘fascist’ tendencies which have attracted many supporters like Peterson.

For the first time since the photograph went viral, Peterson spoke out and explained why she did what she did.

The West Berlin-born Peterson claimed she was a genealogist and had recently researched Trump’s heritage. It is no secret that Trump comes from a German and Scottish background.

Peterson’s research further established Trump’s direct German lineage:

Donald’s grandfather, Friederich (Fred) Trump. was born on March 14, 1869 in Kallstadt, Pfalz, Germany. He immigrated in 1885 to United States from Hamburg aboard the ship “Eider” and became a U.S. citizen in 1892 in Seattle, Washington. He died of influenza on 30 Mar 1918 in New York City, New York.

Donald’s grandmother, Elizabeth Christ, was born on October 10, 1880 in Kallstadt, Pfalz, Germany and died on 6 Jun 1966 in Queens, New York.

Peterson got excited and started to research if Donald’s lineage had any direct connection with Hitler. Her research got briefly interrupted because she had to leave her home to attend the Trump rally.

“When I made the Nazi sign, I was still in my genealogy research mode. It was a subconscious act on my part when confronted by anti-Trump supporters,” she said.

Peterson apologized for her reflex action, but said she will continue her research because she still feels that Donald was a direct descendant of the Führer.

A robot at one of Volkswagen’s production plants in Germany has killed a worker, the German automaker said Wednesday.

The man died Monday at the plant in Baunatal, about 100 kilometres (62 miles) north of Frankfurt, VW spokesman Heiko Hillwig said.

The 22-year-old was part of a team that was setting up the stationary robot when it grabbed and crushed him against a metal plate, Hillwig said.

Prosecutors  were preparing to bring charges against the robot who remains in custody pending bail.

In solidarity with the victim, The Adobo Chronicles®  has decided to auction off its company car, a Volkswagen, on eBay. We will likely replace the company car with a Tesla.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family, and we hope that companies will return to the good old days of employing people, not robots or computers.


Tale of two sculptures
Tale of two sculptures

HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles ® ) – Law enforcement is a serious business in Germany and the United States. Even sculptures must follow the law.

In the German city of Karlsruhe, an overzealous officer slapped a sculpture with a parking ticket.  The sculpture of a bent red Mercedes-Benz food truck is that of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm who is famous for his humurous sculptural treatments of iconic vehicles that are stretched, inflated, and twisted into seemingly impossible shapes. It was cited for illegal parking.

Thousands of miles away, in the city of Hollywood, California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was issued a police citation inside the world-famous Madam Tussauds Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard.  The former California governor and star of the new movie, ‘Terminator Genisys,’ was cited for impersonating a wax sculpture.

Schwarzenegger posed as himself, pretending to be a wax sculpture, occasionally coming to life to the surprise of museum visitors.

As he was led out of the museum, Schwarzenegger told the crowd, “I will be back!”
