Amazon.com has been accused of hiring security guards with neo-Nazi connections to intimidate its foreign workers in Germany.

According to Independent.co.uk, a documentary that aired on Germany’s ARD television channel recently showed guards from a company named 'HESS Security' wearing black uniforms, boots and with military haircuts.

The documentary suggested that the name 'HESS' was because of Adolf Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess.

In the documentary, several guards were shown wearing Thor Steinar clothing, which is synonymous with the far-right in Germany.

The German government banned its purchases of the label because of its neo-Nazi associations. Amazon.com stopped selling the clothing for the same reasons in 2009.

The guards were reportedly employed to keep order at hostels and budget hotels where foreign workers stayed.

The documentary provided evidence that guards searched the bedrooms and kitchens of foreign staff. “They tell us they are the police here,” a Spanish woman said.

Another worker called 'Maria' claims she was thrown out of her cramped sleeping quarters because she dried her wet clothes on a wall heater. Maria allegedly was confronted by a muscular, tattooed security guard and told to leave.

Guards also allegedly frisked workers to make sure that they had not walked away with extra breakfast rolls.

More evidence that the Neo-Liberal Obama Zombies are in fact National Socialists. The Amazon leadership are huge Obama zombies. They directly supported his re-election campaign and brag about it, as though that were something good. Dig the name of the guy leading that effort:

The Obama re-election effort used Amazon so heavily that Amazon Web Services CTO Werner Vogels personally congratulated the campaign's chief technology officer, Harper Reed, on Twitter.
