Since the announcement that Donald Trump had won the Presidential election, the nation has been wrought with various occurrences of hate crimes, defacing of property by drawing swastikas with graffiti, and plenty of “Pro-Trump” rhetoric with regards to the deportation and registration of Muslims and illegal immigrants. It has been a trying time for many, to say the least.The most recent incident came yesterday, with a picture taken in Brooklyn at late Beastie Boys‘ Adam Yauch, aka MCA, NYC Memorial Park (formerly Palmetto Park), showing the property defaced with graffiti of swastikas and wording of “Go Trump.” The area is heavily Jewish, which makes the occurrence even moreso disturbing.Yauch, born a Jew, was a practicing Buddhist and major human rights activist, who founded The Milarepa Fund, as well as the Tibetan Freedom Concert back in the 90’s. Interestingly enough, the swastika, or the gammodion cross, is a sacred and ancient Buddhist and Hindu symbol of auspiciousness dating back over 11,000 years. Unfortunately, the symbol has come to take on a more dark and hateful meaning since the rise of the Third Reich.
