    Actually starting to get a little touchy about people saying I'm not allowed to use the symbols of my faith in public because a bunch of racist degenerates have presumed to appropriate them.
    I don't think people have a problem with the swastika itself. It's the other stuff which certain people adorn it with.

    I don't have a problem with sheets. It's when you make them into a cone and start walking around with it and burning crosses that I get a little neck twitch.

    Oh, they do. When I was in Korea every idiot westerner who saw giant swastikas on buildings instantly associated this:

    with this:

    and instantly got offended by it because they were too stupid to know the difference.

    This is not a symbol of nazi Germany. Some asshole from Austria saw it, thought it was cool, and put it on a big red flag for a couple decades before the Allied forces kicked his army's ass, and he shot himself in his crazy, syphilis riddled brain.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Can anyone imagine the outrage that would be expressed here if he were a white guy?

    It always has to come back to how persecuted whites are...

    You know what? I am a straight, white , Christian male, and I don't feel persecuted at all.

    But you have to know it's true. He would be accused of being a Neo Nazi.

    Because for some reason, when you associate the name "Hitler" with a swastika, it tends to make people think about Nazis. God only knows why.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    To be fair, Schicklgruber just isn't catchy.

    The name will change, but it doesn't say what it will be

    Reports: India 'Hitler' store owner to change shop name - World News

    I wonder if it'll be "Stalin" with the "i" dotted with a hammer & sickle....You know, after his uncle...
