Nazi salutes are more accurately identified as American salutes (used in the early Pledge of Allegiance three decades before it was adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party). It was created and promoted by National Socialists in the USA (e.g. Francis Bellamy & Edward Bellamy). The Bellamys and their cohorts influenced the dogma, symbols and rituals of German National Socialists. http://rexcurry.net/pledge5.html
Today, Americans are persecuted for performing the early American salute. They are persecuted in ways that are similar to how Americans are persecuted for refusing to perform the current American salute and the Pledge of Allegiance (especially children persecuted in government schools / socialist schools). http://rexcurry.net/pledge-allegiance-pledge-allegiance.jpg
Here is a video of someone being persecuted for the American salute. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2487274467636094262
The incident resulted in litigation that went to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/media/view_subpage.php?pk_id=0000003646
The blogger Becky Johnson discusses it at http://beckyjohnsononewomantalking.blogspot.com/2009/07/9th-circuit-court-hears-arguments-on.html
That blog utilized the tags David Beauvais, Kate Wells, Scott Kennedy, Tim Fitzmaurice, Robert Norse, Nazi Salute.
It would be funny if the fellow how performed the gesture argued that to the Court (that he is being persecuted for the early American salute), however he is probably ignorant of it. However, the 9th Circuit is not ignorant of it because they have a brief by the Attorney and historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets") in the case of Michael Newdow v. Carey that is currently before the 9th, and that brief is visible online. That brief explains the early American salute.

Also he performed it wrong anyway, with his left arm.
