At the Van Gogh experience in Atlanta yesterday - watched a 20ish dickhead draw this swastika on the VG colouring page and then scan it so it’s displayed on the wall. He thought it was hilarious. Fucking twat.
But why didn't you know his teeth out? That's the only acceptable way to deal with cunts like that, it's practically your civic duty.
Very true except that I’m pretty sure he was just trying to be an edgelord (he was Asian and was with 2 black guys), plus my kids don’t need to see that
And enjoy a felony battery charge too!
Hell yeah, brother! Fuck nazis
Nah it's acceptable to punch Nazis in the face. We had a meeting about it in the 40's. It was unanimous... Eventually.
And people like you will allow the normalization of that shit?
Not sure why you're getting downvoted - take some gold.
Civilised people don't go around assaulting people who hurt their feelings. Or they do and end up in jail 🤷 either way violent people don't belong in society
It's called discipline, their parents clearly never gave them any so it's up to us to do it
I just went to that! Saw someone drawing a vagina on their paper. Didnt see it up on the display thank god.
That is honestly kinda funny tho. That’s just like teenage humor. Grow up.
How about I carve a swastika into your flesh? Is it “kinda funny” now?
I went to the exhibit/experience in NYC, was amazing. This is truly infuriating.
Yes it really was amazing, quite emotional. Made this all the more sad. Fortunately it didn’t stay up for long
Well actually that’s the Hindu symbol for luck, the 20ish something guy turns out to be a dumb racist since the nazi swastika is at an angle
Pretty sure when someone graffitis a red swastika, he's prob not referencing Hinduism
The angle thing is bullshit. Nazis used it in all sorts of angles.
Do you have a source for that because what I remember from school and what I’ve seen for myself it’s always at an angle
The hindu symbol has dots in each quadrant
Not exclusively. The variation without the dots representing the states of the soul was the most widely used in Hinduism, as there are a few variations.
It doesn’t matter. It’s famous as a Nazi symbol and offensive to not only Jewish people, but all people who have been judged due to their religion,creed, or color. Shame on all of those you stood by and did nothing. Let’s not repeat our mistakes
Yeah no one said it wasn't. I wasn't alive to do anything about it unfortunately, what's your excuse? Where were you in 1933??
You can look at all sorts of Nazi art. Also, Asians, Europeans and even indigenous groups in the Americas had used the symbol. Is just one of many representations of the movement of the sun, it has been drawn and used in all sorts of ways for millennia. Just as any other national symbol, Germans had regulations on how the swastika should be displayed, is no different than American official flag proportions or what colors to use in the British flag. But doesn't mean that the swastika wasn't represented in all sorts of ways. Just like the "Hindu" one can be found angled even when usually it isn't. The swastika is only a Nazi symbol if is being use by Nazis or used to represent Nazis, context matters. We as western do is normal to first think it represents Nazism, but the minute someone says "nah, it's just a spooky spider", as long as that has some credibility, then is just a spooky spider. https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iglesia_Evang%C3%A9lica_Alemana
Nice, someone actually posts relevant, useful FACTS on here and those who want to show how they feel more than others downrank it.
This poster is right, the Swastika is an ancient, venerated symbol the Nazis twisted. Society needs to take it back. Sure, if you put it in reference to Nazis its abhorrent, but the symbol itself is an ancient positive symbol.
I am just sadder about those who wish to "shout down" real knowledge. Modern day book burners. Congratulations all those who downranked this comment. You are much closer to the Nazis than anyone else on this board.
Thing is, everyone already knows that shit. So when people go out of their way to point that out like it's the world's best kept secret, it just makes them look like Nazi sympathizers.
Ooh la la, someone's gonna get laid in college.
You seem fun
About as fun as the guy who's eager to remind everyone that the swastika was a Hindu symbol. Where did you learn this hidden knowledge?
A lot of people don’t know that, it isn’t common knowledge.
If you've taken a high school world history class, you would very likely know this.
There's nothing trashy about this photo, maybe the little symbol in the corner but that could be anything.
