The new football stadium for the New York Giants and the New York Jets is currently in the "Naming Rights Stage". They are taking bids from suitors to see who would like to put their name on the stadium.
The disturbing news at they are currently in negotiations with a German insurance company by the name of Allianz. Perhaps you heard of them. During World War II, they insured both people and facilities at camps that include Auschwitz and Dachau. They also insured Jewish valuables taken by the Nazis.
The CEO of Allianz during the 30's was a man by the name of Kurt Schmitt. He moonlighted as Hitler's second Economics Minister. He even donated to the Nazi Party campaign fund back in 1932.
At the time, Allianz followed the anti-semetic policies of many insurers in Germany. They both terminated and refused to pay off on life insurance policies of Jewish people. They took money that was do to the Jewish beneficiaries and sent it to the Nazi party.
Any way you look at it, Allianz is a corporation with definite ties to the Nazi party.
Would fans of the Giants and Jets consider not going to games if this were the name on the stadium? Can the Giants or Jets take the risk?
