What are you talking Joseph? This guy wears a swastika similar with the nazis. Same angles. Plus, swastika is an ancient European and Indo-European symbol and you can see it everywhere. Go to the museums in Europe and you'll see it in all ages.

Ignorance displayed by neo-Nazis.  Who'd have thought it?  :-D

I think neo-Nazis also use them interchangeably, then...I've seen skinheads wear this exact shirt

Not only a Hindu symbol, but was also used by the Air Force of Finland on their fighter planes during the "Winter War" of 1939-1940 against the Soviet Union.  And, the Finns were using it in the same manner as the Hindus.

It's the angle.  That's the only difference.

The one this guy is wearing is the Hindu one.  The NAZI one is horizontal and vertical lines.  45 degrees make all the difference.

Some of my Indian friends aren't aware of the Swastika's meaning to the West, and I've told them a little about it but it's hard to tell someone "your religious symbol was stolen and for us it represents genocide". The Indian version is supposed to look different but I've seen them used interchangeably.

Heh, you do know that the swastika was a Hindu holy symbol that was co-opted by the NAZI party, right?
