ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 4, 8:06 A.M.: A security officer has been suspended from his job at one of two Orange County college campuses following a television-news report that indicated the 31-year-old has been posting pro-Nazi and anti-black sentiments on Instragram. Carlos Vasquez was disciplined by Golden West College in Huntington Beach, where he works as a public safety officer, but apparently not at UC Irvine, where he serves as a parking officer.

Under the handle "cloz_vaz," Vasquez posted on Instragram pictures of swastikas, Adolf Hitler and photos of African-Americans with racist comments, reports KCBS/Channel 2.

Included in the collection:

  • A photo of a black mother with two children in her arms and the caption "Mammy, when is daddy coming home from prison? I miss seeing him beat you and I miss how he made us hungry."
  • A photo of a young black boy with the caption "Waking up in juvenile jail. It's in their blood."
  • Images of swastikas over a baby's diaper and drawn in mustard on a hamburger with the caption "I will have the Nazi burger easy on the Jew sauce."
  • A photo of Vasquez's own children superimposed in Hitler's arms with the caption "Proud father moment when my daughter met the great fuhrer."
  • Another picture of Hitler and the children with the caption "I love how attentive my kids are when it comes to real WW2 history."

So, yeah, a history buff is he.

It's the fantasy images of Vasquez's own children with Hitler that most concerned Melissa Carr of the Orange County Anti-Defamation League, according to City News Service.

KCBS reports the Instagram account was deleted shortly after its reporter confronted Vasquez about it.

While Golden West College immediately placed him on administrative leave due to the photos, a UCI spokeswoman said they do not violate campus rules because they were posted on Vasquez's personal account.

UPDATE, NOV. 4, 10:55 A.M.: A short clarification courtesy of Jon Arnold, Golden West College's Department of Public Safety director:

"I just wanted to notify you that Vazquez was terminated from his employment with Golden West College."

Firing him violates so many more laws/rights/codes and statutes than posting a few super-imposed photos ever did. Wake up people!!! We no longer live in a free country!!! Kudos to UC Irvine for letting one's personal affairs remain just that...PERSONAL   Golden West is just kowtowing to special interest in an attempt to look good in this unexpected flurry of publicity. Shame shame...

And even I am racist about some things but it's nobody's business if I am.

Sometimes I even let it slip out by accident.

and did you know that Hitler wanted to destroy his own country and people in order to rebuild it in his own image. That's why they said he was an evil genius.

But Stalin was much more evil than Hitler was because he killed millions of his own people because that was Genocide.

There's only one thing that bothers me about stuff like this when I see it and that is that even though they say that they're not discriminating against people and that it's against the laws they're violating the laws anyway by discriminating the people that they're going after in the first place. So it's a no win situation for everyone involved.

My Anaheim city hall security harassment problem instantly cleared up upon wearing a Looxcie camera strapped to my left ear. The kiddies scattered like Manhattan roaches traversing the kitchen floor at midnight and the lights go on. By the way, odd behavior for the supposed "good guys". Or is that the behavior of people trying to cause problems for others.

A textbook example of the minority-just-following-orders-lemming-cop-or-security-guy. This species thrives in the malls of South Coast plaza, Main place and City shopping center. And downtown Anaheim city hall security when I lived there for a year. Even the Starbucks strip mall security nearby were acting the fool.

He should have kept that garbage to himself. How could he expect anyone to believe he performed his duties in an unbiased manner?

So if we were in danger, he would save only the Aryans? I agree with the other person. This guy probably pretends he's a Spaniard. Ugh.

You want to know what's really racist. To say someone can't be interested in certain areas of history just because they happen to be a certain ethnicity. Keep your white guilt to yourself. That said, guy seems a bit off with the pics of his kids (no matter what ethnicity) with hitler and all. Doesn't mean he should lose his job for it though. Any evidence he mistreated blacks or jews on the job?

This loser works at my husband's college campus. I think it should be WELL-KNOWN, for future brown-skinned people who don't want to deal with RACIST rentacops. Golden West College defending his "personal account," get it together, nobody wants to walk on eggshells around a Nazi rent-a-cop self-hating brown-skin, especially people who PAY for their education at your school.

@tongue_twister_for_t Hitler caused the 2nd world war and foolishly sacrificed the lives of millions of people. Not to mention the whole holocaust thing. Stalin sent some political enemies to siberia, tortured and executed people but not counting WWII deaths (him doing what had to be done) most people attributed to him being killed was due to famines. Famines came about because of socialism/collectivism. The same socialism/collectivism alot of the editorial staff of the oc weekly support. So not really fair to blame stalin for those deaths. More socialism/socialists in general share blame for supporting a failed but kind hearted ideology. Hitler wanted to exterminated whole peoples based on some crackpot barroom theories.

@tongue_twister_for_t So you're implying that the people Hitler exterminated in concentration camps weren't "his people," so that mitigates some of his crime?  Judaism is RELIGION, not citizenship.  Murder is murder, no matter why it was done.

@Kate Amico Brennan No because he wasn't alive during the World War II years.
