Can't people learn to share? It's a fairly basic symbol. I wouldn't be surprised if it's been used by lots of different groups of people.


I guess they can learn to share until one of the people they shared it with killed 6 million other people. Good or not, whatever you see in it, the universality of the swastika almost completely belongs to the Nazis now. It's what people automatically associate with the Nazis, and society has done such a terrific job of programming it into everyone that anyone seen with a swastika might as well have a huge "racist" sign tattooed to their forehead. Yes, many people use it and continue to use it - supposedly it's all over the place in India, where people still wear it as a good luck sign. But in the west, you're screwed for life if you wear one because you WILL be viewed as a Nazi.

Same with the Confederate ensign. It wasn't originally created as a racist sign, but the Klan took it and ran it to the point where it's seen exclusively as one in a lot of the country.
I'm sorry if my insensitivity toward your beliefs offends you. But guess what - your religious wars, jihads, crusades, inquisitions, censoring of free speech, brainwashing of children, murdering of albinos, forcing girls into underage marriages, female genital mutilation, stoning, pederasty, homophobia, and rejection of science and reason offend ME. So I guess we're even.

Whoops. I responded and then realized I had nothing to reply back with. You were pretty much right and said it all.

I did mention that it is found around the world and goes back to prehistoric times. Just calling them out on the usual Hindu symbol excuse when sidestepping an issue on why it is really their avatar etc.

Exactly. Nor does it mean we have big pots of gold at the ends of rainbows. We used up all the gold to buy our passage to the United States, which is why we lived in squalid poverty in this country for so long!

THANKS FOR DEPRESSING ME!

And yeah...pretty much. That's why my grandpa that came over froze to death one Minnesota winter. Not that it was any better back in Londonderry though with all the naughty British protestants running around! Damn British!

By the way, in case anyone is looking for a good Irish recipe for St. Pattys Day, I found a good one:

Irish Potato Famine Soup!

Take a pot of water and set it to boil on the stove. Then eat.

Whoops... (I would have put that into the extra-small print, but the icons don't seem to be working in my computer.)

If I may seriously ask, when did your family come to America?

Oh boy....where to start (don't get me talking about my ancestory. I could sit here all day)

Ireland- Co.'s Cork and Dublin and then Co's Armagh and Derry from Northern Ireland
My great-great-great grandfather Henry Kane emigrated from Co. Derry, Nor. Ireland to Canada in 1846 and then went from there to Minnesota. (He married my great-great-great grandmother, Anna Sharpe who was from Co. Dublin)

Posted Image
-Henry Kane (if I had a picture of my father, it would be pretty crazy to see how similar they look)

My grat-great grandfather John Clarkin emigrated from Co. Cork, Ireland in 1885 to Minnesota

Scotland-

My great-great-great grandfather James Walker emigrated from Scotland to Minnesota but we're not sure when. Before 1870 but probably not before 1840.

England-
A branch or two on my mothers side is English. we've been traced back to Catherine Howard and the Duke of Norfolk. They emigrated from England to Virginia aroudn the time of the Revolutionary War. They were my earliest American ancestors.

Germany (Baden-Wurttemburg and Hesse)-

I do not know specific dates on my families emigration from Germany to America off the top of my head (my mom has all the details filed away but I havent looked through them yet), but I do know that it was within the last few generations since my great-grandmother (who is still alive) spoke German with her parents. Coincidently enough, these German ancestors are on my mothers side and were Hessen. Hessens were notorious soldiers-for-hire and were sent over to Co. Cork to bully the Irish around...My fathers side is partly from Co. Cork :p

If you're curious abotu people's geneologies, I did write a blog entry about Henry Kane and his father Daniel and my Northern Irish roots and how that is related to my experience as a Muslim. I also touch a lot on Irish history in it. Here it is: http://muslimahsoapb...can-muslim.html
