They're not equal, of course. Some of Trump's supporters use both I don't doubt.

When I see people in Trump gear or with a Trump bumpers sticker on their car I have the same visceral reaction as if I saw somebody with a Swastika.

If I saw that, I'd worry about passing their car. I wouldn't want to be on a lone stretch of highway with them. With MAGA bumper stickers, there's the worry that they have a swastika hat in the glove compartment, of course, but I'd pass them without worrying about it. I might gawk at them a little to embarrass them, I admit.

The swastika's western interpretation (of monstrosity) shouldn't be diluted, imo. I don't think MAGA can get there, although it's really bad.
