Master Race of Gnomes

Does an artist's gold-colored gnome giving a stiff-armed Hitler salute violates Germany's strict laws against the use of Nazi symbols? Money quote:

"I'd have been executed by the Nazis if I had portrayed the 'super race' as gnomes in 1942," the 59-year-old German artist was quoted telling Stern magazine's online edition.

Why wasn't Sotomayor asked about her position on gnomes?
