The Ride and Fall of the Third Reich

Already in the EM thread, and shouldn't your original title of The Rise of the Fourth Reich (since edited) be 'the Ride of the Fourth Reich'?

E2A: original thread title. It appears I've become an 'influencer': best I sign up to Instagram and start posting dodgy swimsuit photos (or maybe not). Piss off EM!

Has Jeremy Corbyn been photographed there being present but not involved?

I disagree with the swastika ban in Germany. I think the public there have enough sense (and guilt) to be able to highlight, and shout down it's use, were it ever to be displayed. By letting the state take responsibility, it effectively silences the public and prevents their distaste from being apparent.

I agree.

Upon a time, it was an Indian* symbol, associated with good fortune.

I've seen collectable, finely bound, complete works of Rudyard Kipling, predating by decades German descent into the abyss under Herr Schickelgruber's leadership, with gilt swastikas embossed along all four sides of the leather bound front and back covers.

The world would be a better place if the symbol was reassigned by the world to meaning intended by its originators.

Not least because that wouldn't half get up the noses of pig-ignorant right wingers the world over.

* Stonkernote: India denotes both a massive sub-continent within Asia, and one of the countries within it. It's a frankly mahoosive place, and truly wonderful. Everybody knows these things, apart from the few who live in the USA, for whose benefit this explanation was conceived (and for whom I hope the words are not too long, nor the grammar too testing) :thumleft:

It was also a symbol used by Indians, of the Native American type.

It's been used all over the world, then the last unpleasant affair tainted it.

The 45th Division of the US Army had to change their shoulder patch in 1939.
Prior to that it had been a swastika.

I quite like that one at the top.

Shame MARVEL Comics didn't invent it :-{

What/who does it signify?

And let's also not forget that the Finns used this as their air force insginia from 1918 to about 1945/46..
