BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s highest court has upheld a ban on three words appearing in sequence because of their link to a former anthem of the Nazi party.

The Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe rejected on Thursday an appeal by a member of a far-right party who was fined 1,750 euros ($2,400) for wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “die Fahnen hoch.”

This literally translates as “the flags on high.” The court said the words, which appeared as the final part of an eight-word slogan on the shirt, were too similar to the opening line of the Nazi anthem, the Horst Wessel song.

This opens with “die Fahne hoch,” referring to a single flag. Public displays of Nazi symbols are banned in Germany.

“An observer familiar with the existence and history of the Horst Wessel song will be able to place the short text passage in a broader context,” the court said in a statement.

To ignore this would be to overlook the dangers of a revival in National Socialist tendencies, it said.

Yes, the filthy KIKES are so afraid of another backlash to their foul behavior – yet they can’t stop themselves from such behavior…That makes them pathological sociopaths!
