Comedian Charlie Berens lampoons Baraboo students’ apparent Nazi salute

Actor and comedian Charlie Beren mocked Baraboo students for their apparent Nazi salute which has grabbed media attention this week, on his “Manitowoc Minute” video series.

The town of Baraboo has been in the spotlight after a photograph of students performing what appears to be a Nazi salute went viral. Students and the photographer have said the photo was taken out of context and was intended to be a wave to parents.

In the video, Beren said students need to learn from history to avoid repeating it. He also derided white supremacy more generally.
