Could you imagine how it would go over if you guys were using the swastika instead right now?

Or the Stars and Stripes, Union Jack, or Maple Leaf, for that matter. 

You live in a country that wouldn't exist if not for genocide and the wholesale slaughter and exploitation of an indigenous population, you know that, right?

Sure, if you over simplify everything

Judging by all your affinities for socialism/communism, makes sense.

FWIW, the swastika is supposed to represent prosperity and good luck in some cultures. It was Hitler and the Nazi party who completely bastardized it.

 

Right, so go parade it around.

Something tells me there isn't that equivalence you guys are trying to make between the west.

I went to university in Leicester, which has a huge Hindu community. There were swastikas everywhere.

Nobody cared, because they were adults who understood context.

 

Yes and if you understood the context of this conversation, you'd know exactly which swastika I was referring to.

It's the same symbol. 

What logic is there in arguing that a group who used it (incorrectly and just because Hitler liked the shape) for a total of about eighteen years now define it, rather than the people(s) who have used it for hundreds of years?

The Hammer and Sickle and Krasnaya Zvezda are Communist symbols, not Stalinist symbols, not Maoist symbols. Don't try and drag us all down to your superficial understanding of history.

Implying that there is nothing wrong with communism. There's a problem with the core of it, not just it's branches.

Why do you hate Hindus?

FWIW, Devin's avatar is a Syndicalist emblem. I would argue that Communism never killed anyone - murderous dictators did - but it is indisputable that Syndicalism never killed anyone.

And here's you, a "free-speech absolutist" implicitly defending the state's right to surveil based on how a person represents their self. SAD!

Guns don't kill people. People kill people. :ph34r:
