Bit disrespectful, would probably ask them to move on and tell them that a lot of people would be angered by you doing that but I think arresting them is silly, some of the German laws that try to make sure Fascism does not suddenly pop up again and take over Germany actually make Germany more of a authoritarian state and closer to Hitlers plans for Germany (Although the censorship might be on different things) the Kollektivschuld that the Germans have needs to end

The subject is a serious one, ann frankly joking about it is extremely offensive.
And saying that Nazism - an ideology which fuelled one of the biggest atrocities in mankind, is 'rife' in China isn't? Although previously they have been allies, you do realise the alliance ended before the proposal of the final solution? Seems to be nothing more than a case of a new generation of tourists who aren't accustomed to Western behaviour than an actual race motivated attack.

I'd like a bunch of Germans to go to China and make jokes about Chairman Mao and Chinese Communism. See where that gets them.

These idiots got off light.
