A horrific sign of fascist Nazi Germany has been emblazoned on a Palaszczuk government MP’s electorate office.
A Palaszczuk government MP’s office was defaced with a Nazi swastika icon, with the ode to fascism blasted as “disgraceful”.
Queensland Labor’s Don Brown on Wednesday morning shared a photo of the alarming graffiti that is splashed across a picture of his face at his electorate office in southeast Brisbane.
“Not cool,” the member for Capalaba posted on social media.
Government colleague and Road and Transport Minister Mark Bailey said the act was “disgraceful”.
“(There is) no place for this vandalism and fascism,” he posted.
Queensland police last month charged a man with public nuisance offences after he displayed a swastika flag above a Brisbane synagogue.
The flag’s appearance disgusted the city’s Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner, who called for tougher penalties around the use of hate symbols.
The swastika is the symbol of the Nazi party, the far-right anti-Semitic German political party responsible for the murder of six million Jews during World War II.
The flag-flying continued the use of Nazi imagery in Queensland in recent months – including graffiti at the Clapham rail yard at Moorooka in May – and comes as law enforcement bodies raise concerns over rising far-right extremism in Australia.
Mr Schrinner shared a photo of the flag at the time along with his disgust over its appearance.
“This is sickening. For someone to fly this symbol of hatred and genocide right above the Brisbane Synagogue on Margaret St is pure evil. It’s time for this vile flag to be banned in Queensland,” he wrote.
