    No.

    But the colors black-white-red, and even moreso the swastika, symbolize Nazism and Holocaust for most Germans today. When certain Germans decide to wave it today, they must be aware of that, and deliberately take it into account. They prize in the effect that most people will associate them with Holocaust and Nazism, and apparently like it. Methinks that's a statement on its own.

    Yeah, I won't bother responding to those that clearly have no idea what they have just read yet reponded anyway next time...

    That was good advice. Thanks...

    Eh, I was more talking about the people who have no idea what they wrote and then backtrack when they realize they've said something stupid. Those guys are the worst.

    Bored yet?

    For the 2nd Time:

    ...how can you agree that a symbol's meaning, by it's very nature, is dependent on the viewer yet stick to your initial statements that the CF is a symbol of racism and all that? The two seem quite contradictory...

    Of course not, therefore I recommend that you go wave a Nazi flag in Jerusalem.

    Because obviously, there's no anti-semitic connotations behind it.

    Well, if you had read the thread instead of posting in it before doing so (as I've continually warned you you've done), you would know that I changed my opinion on that and a few other things during its course.

    Yes, all the seceding states made it quite clear what their reasons were in their articles of secession, for anyone to read.

    It goes back further than that. The articles are a very condensed version.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
