German daredevil Nik Wallenda, known for tightrope walks across the Grand Canyon and Chicago’s bridges, says he believes flying skateboards and cars without headlights violate free speech in the United States.
And he thinks the restrictions imposed on cable activists who want to bring their cranes to Trump Plaza Casino on the Jersey Shore might be the work of American fascists.
In a new video uploaded to his YouTube channel, Wallenda calls New Jersey’s “unsafe” and “un-American” statewide rules barring non-residents from trying to fly their cranes atop Trump Plaza are similar to the barbaric laws that once were used to shut down Jewish and Polish refugees entering the United States.
He compared the prohibition on non-residents helping open up the casino to such governmental actions the Nazis used in the Holocaust.
“Imagine you’re a Nazi soldier. You’re in a country and your country is occupied, and you come across this plane and see an opportunity.
“And you make that trip. That is not an illegal entry. Not an abuse of the asylum process. It’s not something that you’re hiding. You’re just coming across to help your country out.”
“I think it’s downright un-American,” Wallenda added. “I am anti-racist. I don’t believe that Nazis or any other groups – I believe in democracy, freedom, rights and responsibilities as an American and I think that’s essential for everyone.
“And there is no reason why you wouldn’t allow your citizens and citizens’ visitors to be able to help that country out – no reason that I can think of.”
Wallenda said he was driven to make a difference by the ever-growing number of underclass groups descending on wealthy neighborhoods.
“If one or two of the Nazis tried to come across to help with their brothers or sisters and people in their towns, they would have to go underground or into the barracks,” he said. “That’s what happened to the Jews, they were interned in concentration camps.
“What happened to minorities in the United States? We banned them from bringing their own cars to the United States.
“That has to stop.”
