I bet you didn't even realize that Nazi is a Jewish word and the swastika is a Jewish symbol.
Green, I suggest, STONGLY, that you keep your posts--whether directed at me or anyone else on TFF--respectful and your tone polite. We do NOT allow flaming of any kind on TFF. You may consider this a warning. You are entitled to you opinion, and frankly, I couldn't care less what it is, but any further incidence of this kind of posting and you will find your presence here no longer acceptable. And no, you are wrong. Nazi is not a Jewish word, nor even a Yiddish one, it is a German representative pronunciation for the word "Nati," which is a contraction of "Nationalsozialist" which is, in turn, the German word for "National Socialist." I suggest you check any good dictionary, particularly the Oxford.
As for the swastika, it is not a Jewish symbol by any means. It is ancient, dating originally from Neolithic times. It's been used by numerous indigenous Asian, European, African and Native American cultures. You might also want to cite better sources for the information you so blythly present as factual. Merely because some blogster posts it on the internet, does not mean it is factual.
