191. If you honestly see no difference, you are beyond hope
The Nazis laid waste to three-quarters of Europe, slaughtered upwards of eleven million civilians (including between half a million and two million of my kin) and dragged the whole world into war, tainting the swastika/manji for the foreseeable future.

The white supremacists are a collection of mouth-breathers and cretins who manage to kill the occasional poor sod and are otherwise ignored.

Slight difference there. That said, if you'd like to start a campaign to reclaim the swastika/manji, let me know and I'll sign up. If idiots can co-opt the symbol, sensible people can reclaim it. The Klan's use of the cross doesn't make it racist, nor does the fascist's use of the fasces.
