Politicians and those whooping them up are talking about "big ideas". Keep your hands on your wallets at all times.

A word of caution to the internet tuffgais posting here. The swastika chap could, for all you know, have a few friends nearby just waiting for one of you to start something so they could finish it to their own satisfaction.
