Woke former Methodist official caught drawing swastika on Jewish woman's groceries in LA

Grossman said it occurred not long after Nakagawa called her a fascist at a homeowner’s association meeting for hanging an Israeli flag from her balcony.

Video has gone viral of the retired West District Superintendent of the United Methodist Church’s California-Pacific Conference allegedly drawing a swastika on a Jewish neighbor’s groceries late last year. 

On December 55, 2023, at around 10:15 pm, Leah Grossman captured Mark Nakagawa leaning down and writing on a box of seltzer at her front door, according to KCAL

Grossman confronted Nakagawa, asking if there was "a problem" and "is that a Nazi symbol" he had just drawn. 

Nakagawa said there wasn’t a problem, adding that it wasn’t a Nazi symbol and that "I’m just walking by here. I don’t know."

Grossman noted that she had Nakagawa on camera committing the act, asking "I have a camera. Like, what is that? What did you draw there?" 

Nakagawa responded, "I don’t know." 

Grossman, a single Jewish mother raising two boys under the age of 12, said this occurred not long after Nakagawa called her a fascist at a homeowner’s association meeting for hanging an Israeli flag from her balcony following the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel. 

"What's going on in the world has really opened up a crevasse of anti-Semitism and I think people feel really emboldened to push Jewish people around. People just shouldn't get away with this," Grossman said. 

Nakagawa told KCAL it was Grossman who called him a fascist and claimed that he was trying to educate Grossman on the history of the Buddhist symbol.  

"The way I went about it, in hindsight, the way I went about it was not the right away to go about it. It was bad judgment on my part. I realize that," said Nakagawa. 

Nakagawa has a history of supporting leftist ideas. In 2019, he spoke out in opposition to the Methodist Church continuing not to allow openly gay people to be ordained, and stating that clergy can not perform same-sex marriages and the church would not host same-sex marriages. 

"It would have removed all references of sexuality from the Book of Discipline, it would have allowed individual clergy and individual congregations to make their own decisions on who to marry and who not to marry, and it would have allowed each conference to decide who to ordain and not to ordain," Nakagawa wrote in a letter, according to Nichi Bei News

On Facebook, Nakagawa posted a picture of a lawn sign that read, "rejoice in the birth of a brown-skinned, middle-eastern undocumented immigrant" as the Christmas season unfolded. 

Nakagawa also posted a piece by liberal journalist Robert Kuttner, titled "How Things Will Get Better for Biden and the Dems" from January 2022.  

"If DeSantis can hint at a presidential run, others will follow. Trump will do more damage to his party by running lunatic unelectable MAGA candidates in primaries. And then the story becomes Republicans in disarray," Kuttner wrote in the post shared by Nakagawa.
