Hundreds of anti-vaxxers flooded Times Square for a polarizing protest Saturday.
The event included a pole dancer, and a person who held a sign comparing the inoculation effort to the Nazi’s mass murder of Jews.
“How did the Nazi’s do it? They said the Jews were diseased,” one woman’s sign read, social media images show.
The woman held in her other hand a picture of a swastika made out of syringes with the phrase “what happened to ‘never again?’” according to the images.
American flags and less offensive signage with slogans such as “freedom over fear” and “wake up New York” were also on display in the Crossroads of the World, pictures showed.
Few in the crowd wore masks, as many demanded an end to the city’s vaccine passport mandate.
The protest came as more than two-thirds of all New York City residents have received at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, health officials said.
