The United States Tennis Association has apologised after a version of the German national anthem associated with the Nazi era was accidentally sung at a tournament in Hawaii.

The obsolete first verse, including the words "Germany, Germany above all else" was sung by a soloist at the Fed Cup.

The error left members of the German team and fans upset and angry.

The USTA extended "a sincere apology to the German Fed Cup team and fans for the outdated National Anthem".

"This mistake will not occur again," it said.

Germany's Andrea Petkovic and Alison Riske of the US were about to play their first-round tie when the anthem was heard.

"It was an absolute outrage and affront, the lowest," Petkovic said. "It was by some way the worst thing that's happened to me, especially in the Fed Cup."

The song, the Deutschlandlied, became the official German anthem under the democratic Weimar Republic in the 1920s.

But after World War Two, the first, contentious verse was dropped and the Federal Republic adopted only the third verse beginning "Unity and justice and freedom".

The Fed Cup is the largest international team competition in women's tennis, and included 99 teams in 2015.

Petkovic lost to Riske, 7-6, 6-2.

I thought they sang the Horst Wessel Lied or something.

But no, it was just 'Deutschland uber alles' apparently that triggered. Weak.

We're still allowed to sing about crushing rebellious Scots, aren't we? ;)

Here is Horst himself ... apparently he wrote the er "thing" ...

And here are the er "lyrics" ...

Quote:
The flag on high! The ranks tightly closed!
The SA marches with quiet, steady step.
Comrades shot by the Red Front and reactionaries
March in spirit within our ranks.
Comrades shot by the Red Front and reactionaries
March in spirit within our ranks.

Clear the streets for the brown battalions,
Clear the streets for the storm division!
Millions are looking upon the swastika full of hope,
The day of freedom and of bread dawns!
Millions are looking upon the swastika full of hope,
The day of freedom and of bread dawns!

For the last time, the call to arms is sounded!
For the fight, we all stand prepared!
Already Hitler's banners fly over all streets.
The time of bondage will last but a little while now!
Already Hitler's banners fly over all streets.
The time of bondage will last but a little while now.

The flag on high! The ranks tightly closed!
The SA march with quiet, steady step.
Comrades shot by the Red Front and reactionaries,
March in spirit within our ranks.
Comrades shot by the Red Front and reactionaries,
March in spirit within our ranks.



After listening to it - I recognize it! I listened to it for a zillion hours while playing East Front (Tiller) !!! :D




Apparently Horst was killed by commies in 1930 ...

Meh, pretty average as anthems go. But those uniforms!? Man they had some style, eh?

How's this for an anthem !!??
:)



==
English translation of the lyrics ...

Germany, Germany above all else,
Above all else in the world,
when, for protection and defense,
it always stands brotherly together.
From the Meuse to the Memel,
From the Adige to the Belt,
|: Germany, Germany above all else,
Above all else in the world! :|


German women, German loyalty,
German wine and German song
Shall retain in the world
Their old beautiful chime
And inspire us to noble deeds
During all of our life.
|: German women, German loyalty,
German wine and German song! :|


Unity and justice and freedom
For the German fatherland!
Towards these let us all strive
Brotherly with heart and hand!
Unity and justice and liberty
Are the foundation of happiness;
|: Flourish in the radiance of this happiness,
Flourish, German fatherland! :|

Why is it I have no idea what you are posting?

Could it be you have no idea what you are talking about, instead you line up like a robot to download your marching orders.

The URLs tell me that that's the Nordic Resistance and UK National Action logos.

The fact that I had no idea what either of them were tells you how influential these groups are in the real world...
