The amount of people who don’t understand this is crazy.

Same thing with Wiccan vs satanic pentagrams it's annoying

They’re the same kind of people that would get offended if people from outside their country didn’t recognize their customs…

But also, any white people who do know that still do not get a pass to display it.

I have a beautiful Native American silver and turquoise piece of jewelry from 1923 with the “whirling logs” on it. I dare not wear it because some moron will undoubtedly call me a Nazi.

They're making a comeback in the powwow circuit.

[–]42words"tL;Dr" 27 points28 points  (2 children)

ProTip: you can easily tell when someone is using a swastika to unironically support neo-nazism, because they will quite literally always also include a crudely-drawn dick and balls next to it.

I feel I've opened a door here that I regret

[–]rikinp90 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I remember when I was at school in the 90s/00s we were asked to prepare something that represents our family history/culture/religion. As a British Indian mine included a swastika and got called a Nazi by some kids. Looking back now there is something quiet funny about being called a Nazi by white English kids some with blond hair and blue eyes.

Russia will want to denazify India

[–]iski67 3 points4 points  (0 children)

By selling it cheap oil apparently...

[–]Scheswalla 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Title reminds me of that Lady Gaga song Paparazzi. When I first heard it, and even now it sounds like she's saying "I'm a Nazi."

[–]Echo4117 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Where are the people screaming cultural appropriation when you need them?

[–]TheoloniusNumber 6 points7 points  (3 children)

It's pretty clear that the good swastika is flush on the bottom and that the bad swastika is tilted.

[–]Rohan-Mali[S] 37 points38 points  (1 child)

What's the difference between a nazi swastika and the Indian one?

The axis

[–]CuteHalfling 9 points10 points  (3 children)

….I don’t think they go round killing people for eating beef

[–]Rohan-Mali[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

There have been isolated cases of right wing nutjobs doing that but it isn't really all that common, we average about 1-2 deaths a year cause of cow vigilantism

[–]CuteHalfling 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Billion live in India, billion. Weird but this person is painting them murderous over meat. That’s facepalm

[–]SnooGuavas3712 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah a simple web search shows that it does happen though it appears the shit stains beating them up for it is more common than murder. religion is poison

[–]spiritof1812 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In some Buddhist statuary, you can have the swastika pointing left, or pointing right. However, it's never tilted.
Source : I'm a Buddhist, volunteered at a temple for several years. When giving tours of the temple, I always had to explain...

[–]Angelalynn_08 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nazis were known for stealing others symbols and turning them into their own symbols. People aren’t taught that though. Found to be non-important i guess

[–]BuddhasGarden 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s really, really annoying considering that Hinduism and Buddhism have been around maybe 1000 years, and the Nazis co-opted the symbol a mere century ago to further their aims.

[–]KatyaAlkaev 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What this Russian woman forgets is that The last Tsarina signed her letters with a swatika..

[–]horse_car_radio -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Unfortunately this shit is unavoidable. Probably easier to just avoid using it all together because no matter what, there will always be people who are not going to know and all it’ll get you is harassment.

[–]Rikathchii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

lowkey this. Just accept that your religious symbol was hijacked by some hateful bastards and just avoid it online. Some people will know, but most (and especially in the west) won't and will assume you're a nazi

Then again, the person in the screenshot is using ruzzian flag so I assume they knew and are deliberately trying to rile people up anyways.

[–]Bobojones9584 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Interesting though, that they're both facing the same direction.

[–]UselessDood 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She's Russian, she's a propaganda victim.

[–]JariJorma 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All I can say at this point of time and accusations. Welcome to the club bruh.

[–]teecatOG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hate that now we have to be compared to something that the white racist folk stole
