      True. And that's one of reasons Hitler chose it, because of its past history. There are many minor variations of it over history, and even Hitler (remember, he was an art major) tweaked it for Germany's final version.

      The Finnish Air Force used it before Nazi Germany. After WWII, they stopped using it.

      A U.S. Army unit located out west used it as part of their symbol because they were honoring the local Native American tribe which had used it for centuries because it meant good luck to them. When WWII started, needless to say, the Army unit changed their logo.

      Those of you "oldtimers" from the Hockey-L days may remember a photo someone found from an early 1900s Canadian newspaper showing a female hockey team, nicknamed the "Swastikas." I think I still have that photo somewhere. Back then, it was perfectly acceptable to use a nickname and team logo like that. Now, it seems so weird.

          You are a complete and utter moron if you think I'm defending a racist symbol.

            Right but the NC Supreme Court overruled them.

            The Swastika is used in China and Hong still as a symbol of peace.

            On a different note it seems lots of Trumpers are comparing the Neo Nazis to BLM. When the recent shooting in Minneapolis happened (White Lady) BLM protested for her and supported her family. Would the Neo Nazis do that? BLM may be d-bags a lot of the time, but no matter how much the Fraudbots and the Racists pretend they are not the same.

              BLM and the Neos aren't even close to the same. I can't even begin to see how some would think that.

                    I explained earlier why I think that. If you choose to ignore why I think that, or haven't read my reasons, then that is on you.

                            The antis who are/were peaceful protesters are innocents. The antis with clubs or who wanted to start a violent confrontation are not.

                            The civil rights movement won because they never attacked when hit with fire hoses and dogs and, yes, when some were murdered. Dr. King realized Gahndi won while Jeff Davis lost.

                                Time to stop being politically correct and just say it. The President of the United States is a racist.

                                But members of the president’s staff, stunned and disheartened, said they never expected to hear such a voluble articulation of opinions that the president had long expressed in private. National Economic Council Chairman Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, who are Jewish, stood by uncomfortably as the president exacerbated a controversy that has once again engulfed a White House in disarray.
