No Love From Sebastian For BC Nazi Fan

Christopher Sandau was fired by the North Delta Minor Hockey Association this past Saturday. Now, usually when a coach if fired, it is connected to some sort of abuse of his players. In this case, the reason is more novel:

A minor hockey coach in B.C. has been fired after posting images of Nazi propaganda to his Facebook page....

Holocaust denial isn't something one hears often in the hockey rink, but we digress:

Sandau's public Facebook profile featured several photos of Adolf Hitler and Nazisim before it was taken down on Wednesday. Images of swastikas had captions such as, "If this flag offends you, you need a history lesson" and "may god be with us and the truth prevail."

Other posts questioned how many people died during the Holocaust, and accused Jewish people of controlling banks and government.

Sandau's social posts contained "extreme and objectionable material believed to be incompatible" with the hockey association's promotion of good citizenship, said president Anita Cairney in a statement released to media. "The NDMHA requires that our coaches present themselves as positive role models for our children athletes."...

Thus far we haven't been able to determine is Sandau is a member of one of the hate sites we frequently visit and the story hasn't been the subject of a lot of discussion aside from a brief mention on Stormfront. However one of our little friends had considered using this particular incident as a public relations opportunity before ultimately deciding against it:

Somebody's a 'fraidy cat. Or sumf'n.

Actually Ronin would likely be tickled pink that we published this and might suggest that we are doing the job of promoting a group that really only a handful of people know about for them. Even if that were true, we're really not sure that any press is good press, especially when people start to dig deeper to see what positions, or people, you support:
