Authorities say a tourist from America was punched in Germany after allegedly displaying the Nazi salute.

Anthony Scaramucci: Trump Should Have Been 'Much Harsher' On White Supremacists
Scaramucci had boasted that he reported directly to the president and not the former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus . Breitbart has close ties with the alt-right movement, an ideology that can be associated with white nationalism.
The tourist was heavily intoxicated and had a blood alcohol level of 0.276 percent.
The American is now under investigation for violating Germany's blasphemy laws which are very strict when it comes to anything related to Nazi symbolism.
The American also had insignia of "unconstitutional organizations, which includes Nazi symbols", Deutsche Welle reported. The duo was arrested but was eventually released after paying a fine of about $1,000. Germany outlawed the salute after World War II, along with Holocaust denial and other symbols and signals associated with the Nazis.
