A European clothing company has sparked outrage after trying to reclaim the swastika as a symbol of peace and love.
KA Design recently unveiled clothing featuring a rainbow-colored swastika as the “o” in the word “love.” Other shirts and sweatshirts said “zen” and “peace” under the Nazi symbol.
“The Swastika is 5,000 years old, it’s a symbol of peace,” the company said in a promotional video on its Facebook page. “It’s a symbol of love, it’s a symbol of life.
“But one day, Nazism. They took the swastika, rotated it by 45 degrees, and turned it into Hatred, Fear, War, Racism, Power. They stigmatized the swastika forever. They limited our freedom,” the video continued. “The swastika is coming back, together with Peace, Love, Respect, Freedom. Introducing the new swastika.”
If this is the sign of peace and love then why is the confederate flag verboten?
