The Left is Embracing its Authortarian Roots

Quote:

A clothing company has drummed up controversy for emblazoning the swastika on its merchandise. The shirts, created by KA Designs, were sold on the popular website Teespring, and featured rainbow-colored swastikas with the words “Peace,” “Zen”and “Love.”*

KA Designs claims that their intention behind using the symbol commonly associated with the Nazi party was to reclaim the symbol to represent the LGBTQ community.*

In their original description of the product, KA Design wrote, “Here at KA we explore boundaries. We push them forward. Let's make the Swastika a symbol of love and peace. Together, we can succeed.”

In a promotional video for the product, the company stated, “They [the Nazis] stigmatized the swastika. They won. They limited our freedom. Or maybe not? The swastika is coming back together with love, peace, respect and freedom.”

Don't get me wrong. I am just as horrified by the swastika as most, but it's history has nothing to do with Hitler's hatred and USE of the swastika to spread that hatred, murder and violence.
It's a 12,000-year-old symbol. The word ‘swastika’ is a Sanskrit word (‘svasktika’) meaning ‘It is’, ‘Well Being’, ‘Good Existence, and ‘Good Luck’. It's been found on Christian catacombs, Egyptian tombs-- Nordic cultures, Buddism--used by Phoenicians as a symbol of the sun. It's been associated with the four seasons--carved on all sorts of statues, monuments, religious places and stained glass windows.

So I guess if this company wants to 'bring it back' as something positive, they can try. I'm just not sure most of us are ready for that. It is ironic, and unfortunate, that a symbol of life and eternity that was considered sacred for thousands of years has become a symbol of hatred.

Why not bring back the KKK insignia as something positive. Who do these white supremacists think they are kidding ?

Oh Wolfe, you goofball. Sabcat thinks EVERYTHING on the planet has some association with authoritarianism. Probably Daddy issues.
