A Facebook post likening the Holocaust of Jewish people to Newcastle East residents during the #NewcastleSupercars has caused a stir on social media

A Facebook post likening the Holocaust of Jewish people to Newcastle East residents during the #NewcastleSupercars has caused a stir on social media.
The post appeared on the Newcastle East – Heritage Zone not Supercar Zone page at around 6:00pm last night.
The post suggests that, like Jewish people under Nazi rule, Newcastle East residents are denied civil liberties and property rights, and that residents are required to wear a wristband to identify themselves, like the yellow badge Jewish people were legally required to wear.
The post has since been deleted. Details tonight at 6.

  1. Is there any room around the track to build a bridge for the haters of said v8’s so that they can get over it?? Buy some frigan ear muffs because the v8’s are coming to town

  2. Some East End residents have always complained and whinged about anything they could find to complain and whinge about….has been going on for at least 61 years that I know about.

  3. A disgraceful attention seeking post. The Holocaust was an atrocity suffered by thousands and to have their deaths and torture likened to a sporting event is a disgusting ploy to get their own way. Shame on you V8 Supercar haters your posts are despicable.

    1. As do all decent people, David. Maria Charlton’s comments are disgraceful. How anybody could compare the Holocaust to what’s happening in the East End, is beyond me.

  4. She is the owner of map marketing… you would think that a person in her line of work could see the economical benefits of the V8s to the struggling small business owners in town.

  5. Her clientel consists of construction and building industries, engineering and manufacturing, health care, online providers and automotive industries! Wonder how much work she will loose after this.

  6. If someone said what is the shittest idea for Newcastle East it would be a V8 race. No wonder people are ropeable about this.

  7. If she really fled.. Like ran for her life, was threatened to be killed in gas chambers, separated from family members and saw innocents killed then I highly doubt she would compare them and I highly doubt she would take it all so lightly as she app…

  8. Doesn’t sound real sorry to me, just disgraceful and a pathetic grab for attention that hopefully has backfired on her and her business.
