Indubitably: Anyone in a "cult" anywhere: think for yourself, please. You can do it; I believe in you.


What you perceive is reality.

When Michael Jordan showed up in a Hanes commercial with a toothbrush mustache, I thought: "Here's pretty much the only guy in the history of the world with a chance to take that back from Hitler."

I was probably wrong and nobody ever saw Jordan'shiatlerstache again.

It does seem silly that the guy ruined a particular facial hair style forever, but he did.

The Navajos had theirs both ways so if they and the Buddhists want to get together and bring it back big deal but these schlemiels are just looking for free publicity and they should go and schtupp themselves.

Darth_Lukecash: This is about as funny as Michael Jordan trying to bring back the Toothbrush "Hitler" mustache.


Richard Herring did a tour entirely based on the toothbrush moustache a couple of years back.

There's a certain segment of the population in Asia that really has a thing for Hitler and nazi imagery (and yes I am aware of the swastika's prior history in Asia) - and they aren't all necessarily right-wing zealots. Partially I think you can blame it on his snappy uniforms. It's eerie especially considering the way Asians ranked on Hitler's racial hierarchies.

doglover: snowjack: New organizations and cults should just find a new farking symbol.

But the swastika is a simple geometric shape.

Search high and low for all the complex symbols you want, there's only so many simple ones.

Also it's nice have a project. Atheists like to take religious references away. Street preachers like the get people fired up. I like to take things back.

The livery chosen for a Dublin laundry company in 1912. I believe the company operated until the 60s....

The very first non-Nazi swastika I ever saw was a Buddhist one in a hippy-run head-shop. And I don't see a problem at all with it. It's a simple geometric shape, that has been discovered and used by all the peoples of the Earth at some point in time.

If fascists aren't allowed to use the swastika they'll just come up with their own cool designs, such as Golden Dawn in Greece:

If nationalists and fascists exist in your country, they'll rally around whichever symbol they choose, if swastikas are not available.

Exactly.

Small mind ascribed to a readily accepted symbol, adopted it, and then farked it, much like Sandusky...

Oh yeah, Catholic-cover-up.

doglover: Maybe. In Japan, it's a centuries old marker for Buddhist temples.


Yes. Saw it on Buddhist temples in Korea, too. A Korean told me that the symbol represents "the heart of Buddha."
 
2012-06-22 09:30:49 PM
At this point, it makes little difference that the symbol has a long history of peaceful symbolism. The Nazis ruined it for all time.

I think this probably had a lot to do with the shift. Swastikas were all the rage in the West for a good couple of decades before Hitler. Then this bastard uses it to represent his evil empire. The cultural whiplash kinda makes it too taboo to go back to the way it used to be. Imagine if Sandusky had been the international face of the Ronald McDonald House just before the scandal broke - McDonalds would never be able to use the clown again

But we have to try and reclaim it! It's a series of lines in a particular order! If we don't wipe the shiat off this particular series of lines in a particular order, it's not gonna be FAIR! Don't you get it? It's not fair the Nazis ruined it. Not fair! It's a cool whirly twirl!

AdolfOliverPanties: cman: I hope that more groups like this spring up. The swastika has been around pre-recorded history, and because 12 years there were some evil dudes who used it as a symbol of hate, the swastika is automatically associated with this evil. Its time for us to take the swastika away from the Nazi's

And I'd like to sport a Charlie Chaplin mustache from time to time, but Hitler farked that up too.


I'd say the tache is probably ok if you don't do it with the comb over hairstyle and keep control of your right arm.

Bennie Crabtree: they are not enthusiasts. They are an actual cult. I have two of their holy books and went to one of their recruitment meetings. they claim to use psychic sex powers and to understand intergalactic cloning technology. It's quite fascinating and hilarious at the same time.


Tell me more about the psychic sex orgies and where I need to show up.
