DAILYKENN.com -- A parade of humorous floats in Maissau, Austria included one entry that was deemed offensive; even down-right "racist."
The small purple float featured a sign reading "MAISSAU 2020 akbar allah" and another reading "SHARIAH POLICE," apparently suggesting that the city would be governed by Shariah law by the year 2020.
A man wearing a police uniform bearing the words "SHARIAH POLICE" walked ahead of the float.
Reports say the float included symbols referring to Nazis; apparently the number "88" ('Heil Hitler') on the bumper, suggesting Islamic law is akin to fascism.
Authorities voiced the obligatory outrage and promised an investigation, but there was no indication that those attending the parade were anything but amused.
