But apparently PBS didn’t notice the woman’s coded “Heil Hitler” tattoo on her left hand. Or her “White Pride Worldwide” tattoo on her right. It was Gawker that noticed:
Last night, PBS NewsHour ran a story on the Tilly family of Fayetteville, North Carolina. The Tillys do not have a history of being active in politics, but various members of the family—both old and young—are being motivated to vote or work for a campaign for the first time by Donald Trump.
If you can put aside the fact that the Tillys are rallying behind Trump, this is a small but almost heartwarming story of a family choosing to engage with democracy. That’s also if you can put aside the fact that Grace, one of the central characters in the story, has large white power tattoos on each of her hands.
Each of the number 8s on Tilly’s right hand stand for “H” – the eighth letter of the alphabet – and together they mean “Heil Hitler.” The Celtic cross on her left hand is widely used among white supremacists, often with the added text “White Pride Worldwide.”
