For the third time since May, Jews and Liberals in San Diego have reacted with revulsion to the sight of a swastika in public. Now it’s a tattoo on a young white woman’s back.
Wednesday night at the Mission Valley Costco on Fenton Parkway, cell phone images were taken of a couple and posted on Facebook.
The Jewish photographer, who asked that their name be withheld, shared photos of the ancient symbol beneath a tattoo saying White Pride.
In May, Dustin Hart shared video of himself and his wife shopping at a Santee Food 4 Less wearing small NS flags attached to their face masks. And in July, Jesus Seineke of Alpine was photographed driving around East County with a National Socialist banner on the back of his SUV.
The latest photos were taken at 8:10 p.m. Wednesday, the photographer said. The couple — both wearing face masks — left Costco at 8:37 p.m.
“I felt instant rage. A visceral physical reaction,” the photographer told Times of San Diego. “My breath sped up and my entire body tensed up. I was shaking. The tears came but only after I came down.”

After taking the photos, the witness said they were surprised by how physical their reaction was.
“My heart was racing and pure rage was rushing through me,” the person said. “Like water over a damn. … I have a very strong emotional connection to WWII for some reason. I can’t watch the movies, see the photos, read the book… It destroys me.”
