If The Left Forgets History, Are We Condemned To Repeat It With Them?

The “far” left has revived the tradition of blackshirts (literally) beating up their opponents.

Could this have been far behind?

The designs, created by KA Designs and sold on the site, all display large swastikas in the front.

One shows the Nazi-associated symbol in rainbow colors with the word “Peace”, another one with the word “Zen”, one reading “Love” and a third design, in black, shows a spiral of swastikas. They range in price from $20 to $35.

I fully expect to see Oberlin graduates building camps where they will teach people to concentrate on social justice.

  1. Ever been to Korea? Manja are everywhere. They adorn just about every Buddhist temple. I do not get offended by it. As a matter of fact, the only time I was offended was when a pc snowflake at work took down a turn of the century (pre-1900) advert that featured the manja, lest it offend anyone. Why can’t people just get along? Mussolini loved garlic, so no garlic for you, because if you crave it, you are a fascist!

    Now, I am not pollyannaish and swastika painted on a synagogue does not convey the same sentiment as manja. If the idiots at KA designs would have called their product a manja and not a swastika we would have nothing to discuss.

  2. There is something oddly appropriate about this, which might have something to do with why they pulled it from the market.

  3. jpa: I traveled to India last December, saw the swastika on lots of stuff. But odds are that KA Designs, a European company, isn’t marketing to Indians or other Asians, but to Westerners, some of whom still remember the ugliness that symbol came to represent.

    It’s an idea that should’ve been shot down in the early brainstorming sessions. On the plus side, everybody’s talking about KA Designs now.

  4. I fully expect to see Oberlin graduates building camps where they will teach people to concentrate on social justice.

    They should set up special camps where the social justice warriors can concentrate– I mean, congregate.

  5. Like I complimented in a couple different FB posts: Because Gay Nazis are a huge thriving marketplace, right?

    I can’t recall a more spectacular marketing fail…unless the intent was what Ian suggests: On the plus side, everybody’s talking about KA Designs now.

    No such thing as bad publicity.
