Didn’t Jonah Goldberg wrote a book a few years ago? And don’t some complain that the gay activists branding everyone who doesn’t share their views a bigot makes them pretty bigoted themselves? The rainbow swastika might also be a nice reminder of the strong homoerotic current in Nazism, particularly in its early, pre-1934 days.
KA Designs claims that their intention behind using the symbol commonly associated with the Nazi party was to reclaim the symbol to represent the LGBTQ community.
In their original description of the product, KA Design wrote, “Here at KA we explore boundaries. We push them forward. Let’s make the Swastika a symbol of love and peace. Together, we can succeed.”
In a promotional video for the product, the company stated, “They [the Nazis] stigmatized the swastika. They won. They limited our freedom. Or maybe not? The swastika is coming back together with love, peace, respect and freedom.”
Maybe you guys can do something to reclaim that other symbol of homophobic mass murder, Che?
