Damn Hitler, he wasn't nice at all.

The picture with him holding the game is heeehi-hilarious.

JtFM : Eddie Izzard is brilliant...

If Adolf Hitler
Flew in today
They'd send a limousine

Actually, I think it is

"Have you got a flag?"

The pictures on the page aren;t loading for me. I'm assuming it's exactly like the "racing game" I picked up at the dollar store several months back. I have several, actually. These items are made in china. Where not everybody has a knee jerk nazi association to the swastika. This symbol which has existed for thousands of years before Hitler ever got the idea of stealing it for his own uses. A symbol who's purpose is far more noble..

May I now point you all to

I have a pre-war copy of Rudyard Kipling that has swastikas on the cover. (The Indian ones, facing the other way.)
2001-09-06 12:35:01 AM  
Kipling had a swastika as part of his family crest, actually. Manwoman has some information on that on his site. And his book, Gentle Swastika. Quite a good read.
2001-09-06 12:40:56 AM  
Of course, Kipling was subject to the typical, British bigotries of his time. "Beyond the Pale" and all that.
2001-09-06 12:41:03 AM  
What in the BLUE HELL are these people trying to pull, anyway?
2001-09-06 12:43:03 AM  
Ah. I finally got the images to load properly. Yes, it's very simmaler to the toy I have. Except that mine is red and is square in shape. With the circular part with the swastika in the square. I Mockery is being a little stupid with his accusations of Naziism and brainwashing, with this, I think. Nice try at exposing something truly profound and frightening, but... nah..
2001-09-06 12:58:35 AM  

lets make up shiat it looks like...... sounds like somebody is looking for some job security.....

NAZI sign, my ass it's a damn toy you ASSHOLE
2001-09-06 01:02:31 AM  
Maybe some of you aren't as sensitive to seeing swastikas in everyday use cause you didn't have someone you love die in one of the concentation camps.
Well, my grandpapa broke his neck when he fell off that guardtower.
2001-09-06 01:23:41 AM  
did you see where its made china
2001-09-06 01:25:29 AM  
there's a part in a bomberman game a while back where you have to push blocks to get out of a room, and you end up making a swastika... thinking that had anything to do with hitler makes just a little sense. i mean, look at the toy, i've seen a few swastikas hither and thither, but none of them have a big circle in the middle of them
2001-09-06 02:05:27 AM  
lol. If you don't see the swastika in it ya gotz to be blind. ;) The one in this article isn't as easily noticeable as the one in Part 1 which can be seen HERE.

Preferredcustomer, Remember this is PART 2 of the article. I believe the toy you say you have is covered in PART 1, the toy is red and the swastika is MUCH MORE NOTICEABLE. Check out Part 1 and let me know if it's the same one you had.

As for the swastika originally meaning something more noble, that is true. BUT it all depends on what way it is facing.

When shown in a counterclockwise direction, it is an ancient religious symbol that represented a sign of good luck. When shown clockwise, it's the nazi swastika. And that IS the direction that both of the toys covered in parts 1 and 2 of this piece are facing. You can more about the swastika's history here.

And to anyone thinking I'm taking this nazi toy way too seriously... the piece is obviously meant to be partly humorous. I personally don't believe that these companies purposely set out to spread nazi propaganda to all the youth out there. But I do think it's pretty damned funny that it has gotten by so many people without hardly anybody even noticing it.

I mean you'd THINK that somebody would notice that when they were first making these red plastic molds in a factory... "Hey! That kinda looks like a swastika!". And if not that, AT LEAST the company's here in america that distribute them and put their own label under it.

The toys are built in China, but their packaged and labelled here in America by Boley Corp and/or Regent Products. So it's surprising that none of them would think twice about the toy. Then again, you never know... maybe there is a conspiracy behind it afterall. hahaha!

Anyway, if some images aren't loading, it's cuz of all you farking farkers overloading the puny server I'm on. ;) So if that happens, just reload the page and they should appear.

BTW, part one of the story can be seen HERE for those of you who never got to read it.
2001-09-06 03:08:34 AM  
WEll ok... the shape is similar to a swastika... but in my opinion the true "Hitler evil bad" swastika was black with a red background, correct? So I think some hyper-sensitive folks have drawn uber-conclusions here... I mean are we to say that certain shapes (regardless of color scheme) or outright offensive in an obviously unrelated scenario... ok, i'm feeling chipper so email me at cruse­da­ddy1[nospam-﹫-backwards]loa­*c­om for a discussion....
2001-09-06 03:13:42 AM  
2001-09-06 03:19:04 AM  
I can see why this could be harmful. Obviously, anyone who plays with it will say to themselves "Oh look, a swastika. I think I'll go kill Jewish people now."
2001-09-06 03:45:14 AM  
Exactly, kids by the truckloads are now going to become MINDLESS NAZI-LOVING ZOMBIES! Beware!!!!!!
2001-09-06 05:06:08 AM  
This is stupid. The Swastica was taken on by the nazis, but before that was used by many cultures, especially bhuddism. See To brand this toy company as evil is just ridiculous.
2001-09-06 07:11:10 AM  
HTML needs a tag. Why don't you folks get it? The I Mockery people are fickin joking....
2001-09-06 07:11:58 AM  
damn html. I said it needs a

2001-09-06 07:12:40 AM  
Damn fark shiat cock!


replace the : with > and <, but the other way around!
2001-09-06 07:41:00 AM  
The direction the swastika faces is meaningless. There have been swastikas of both directions for thousands of years. I have a wooden box with a right-facing swastika from the turn of the century, actually. Please go to or good sources for Swastika relation history and information.

And yes, I finally got images in the firts arcticle to load, as well. The toy itself from arcticle one is identical to what I have. PAckaging is different, though.
2001-09-06 07:53:08 AM  
My bad, The address I meant to give it

Anyhow, I looked a tthe link you provided, I-mockery. I can say in all confidence that It's absolutley incorrect. There are countless examples of pre-war right facing swastikas all over the world and in all cultures, Including said right facing swastikas decorating Jewish arcticles and places of worship.
2001-09-06 07:53:50 AM  
Not to be a Concrete-headed and overly stubborn, But I know I am correct on this. =]
2001-09-06 08:00:38 AM  
so am I.
2001-09-06 08:01:30 AM  
Hmm, can't decide if I should be more worried about the design on the toy or the fact that Chinese prisoners crafted this thing...
2001-09-06 08:15:07 AM  
By the way, it's "Kampf", not "Kamph". What a dumbass.
2001-09-06 09:55:02 AM  
The Swastica was taken on by the nazis, but before that was used by many cultures, especially bhuddism.

Very true. However, given the events of this century, that symbol has changed from one of peace to one of virtually pure evil. While it may have looked pretty in ancient works of art and served many cultures, the one it most recently served has, sadly, forever tarnished the image.
2001-09-06 10:35:41 AM  
Nodhg: Bravo! Bravo! HAven't laughed so hard in hours!!
2001-09-06 10:36:43 AM  
...that symbol has changed from one of peace to one of virtually pure evil.

Just like the moustache, he ruined it for everybody. I betcha Charlie Chaplin is PISSED!
2001-09-06 11:17:15 AM  
you! cake or death?!?
2001-09-06 12:34:02 PM  
Prefferedcustomer, I'll definitely check out that link because I am interested in all sorts of historical facts. I just think it's funny that some people are taking this article as if it was written completely serious. I mean the little boy with the glowing red eyes... the "Louie Von Googenheimer" mascot remake... it's obviously meant to be taken lightly. If it's not, then I guess people probably thought my "Hitler Joins Metallica" piece was real too. hahaha

Anyway, like Slippy said, the Swastika will be forever tarnished because it does continue to be used as a symbol of hate. So any traces of good in it are going to be overlooked by most people. And if you saw someone walking down the street with a swastika symbol tattooed on their arm or whatever, you'd probably be thinking that they were a nazi too.
2001-09-06 02:58:20 PM  
What the fark?

prefferedcustomer you have hurt my eyebalss with that first .com link

AAAHHHHH the pain.

He who laughs last is an idiot!
2001-09-06 04:45:39 PM  
Hitler also ruined the miniature mustache for everyone too! I can't wear one out of the house without someone telling me I look like Hitler!
2001-09-06 04:53:13 PM  
preferred customer beat me to it.
2001-09-06 05:24:20 PM  
Airburst, no way, Super Mario brought the Mustache back into style. Then again, maybe he just hurt it that much more...
2001-09-06 05:58:55 PM  
Here is what PETA thinks of the whole subject:
[image from too old to be available]
2001-09-06 06:06:14 PM  
Oh please. It's a cross with a line coming off each end. If the Nazis had chosen the circle would everyone in the world be evil due to having circular eyes? Grow up.

A swastika spinning deosil tends to mean radiation of energy whereas a swastika spinning widdershins tends to mean accumulation or draining of energy. That's as much as I know.

2001-09-06 06:10:40 PM  
Kthulhu, I thought that was a joke... but that's an ACTUAL picture from PETA's site!? bwahahaha!
