New Zealand Music Fest Attendee’s ‘Far-Right Tattoo’ Causes Thousands To Be Evacuated. Then Authorities Took A Closer Look; Here’s What They Found.

New Zealand’s Homegrown Music Festival in Wellington saw 5,000 people evacuated over the weekend after an attendee, who was thought to be acting suspiciously, was found to be sporting a “far-right tattoo.”

It’s somewhat understandable why folks would be so tense with something like this given the horrific mass shooting in Christchurch just a few weeks ago.

However, this turned out to be much ado about nothing.

“Some of the Homegrown crew identified a person that they were concerned about, and police made the call that [the] person needed to be found,” Wright told the NZ Herald. “It all happened at the changeover of the music, so people were moving around and police couldn’t spot the person immediately, so they made the call to evacuate the stage.”

Wright added to the NZ Herald that “the person was found, and it turned out that is was a completely innocent misunderstanding and everyone was allowed to return.” She noted to the outlet that the whole evacuation took 28 minutes but that information saying it stemmed from a tattoo was inaccurate.

It’s sad that terrorists have this sort of an impact on culture and cause folks to have such fear deeply ingrained in their hearts.

One thing that bugs me about this story though is how they equate with the Nazi symbol with the right. Particularly when you look at history and realize that much of what Hitler and his goons believed is ripped right out of progressive ideology.

If anything, this should be considered a far-left symbol. Or we could just call it what it is. A symbol of evil. Hitler was one of the most despicable human beings to ever walk the face of the earth. Anything that is associated with him and his worldview are wicked to say the least.
