Vegas' Deep Nazi History is about 5 years ago
Ralph Louis Engelstad (January 28, 1930 – November 26, 2002) was an American businessman who owned the Imperial Palace casino-hotels in Las Vegas and in Biloxi, Mississippi. He also owned the Kona Kai motel in Las Vegas, which later became the Klondike Hotel and Casino.
Engelstad was a controversial figure. He raised accusations of being sympathetic to Nazism owing to his collection of Nazi memorabilia stored in a private room, which he referred to as his "war room", within his Imperial Palace hotel-casino. After discovery of the memorabilia, Engelstad agreed to sell it rather than put it on display. In an apology letter to the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas, Engelstad said "I now feel I have done what I can and apologized for what I cannot do". In addition to the memorabilia he stored on display in his "war room", a printing plate was found within his hotel that was used to make bumper stickers that read "Hitler Was Right".
Las Vegas Locals Are Secretly (or not so secretly) Racists
The locals hate the tourists. They hate the casinos. They hate everything. They are white trash - some of the worst scum you will ever meet; greedy selfish and full of hate. Thats why its so easy for Steve Sisolak to pass hate laws like - No glass containers, no homeless people, no feeding pigeons. no, no no.... The old white people who hold the majority love a square guy from Wisconsin who hates everything about Las Vegas - except making money.
