Robin van Persie is not a Nazi

RVP is just amazing.  He's scored 28 goals in 27 games, no-one seems to know how to defend against him and he also seems like a really nice guy.  OR IS HE?!!


The minute he did this in real life, some teenagers on Twitter decided that he was doing a Nazi salute and spread it around.  Subsequently all the football websites that want some traffic also decided that this was a Nazi salute and it got to the point where RVP himself had to say:
“It has been brought to my attention of some ridiculous allegations concerning my celebration of one of my goals yesterday. It is totally ludicrous to suggest that my action of brushing my shoulder and pointing to my fans could be construed as anything else but of a showing of joy and celebration. To suggest this meant anything to the contrary is insulting and absolutely absurd as nothing else came into my mind.”
So at least that's cleared up then.  If he starts goose stepping the next time he scores I think it's fair to start looking into it a little further but if history has taught me anything, it's that people from the Netherlands don't like Nazis.  Or is that hills?

I'm trying to fit in an Anne Frank joke here.  Something about Twitter.... maybe RVP tweets from his attic?  There's something here somewhere.
