Heil Tolerance! #Nazi salute OK in #Switzerland…if it’s not political — RT News

The decision, entitled “Hitler salute in public not always punishable,” implies the following: “Unless one is proven to be spreading racist ideology, they’re free to express a personal sentiment or belief with the gesture.” That is what Lausanne’s Federal Tribunal said Wednesday, according to AP.
