So should collecting things like replica Nazi flags and uniforms be illegal considering the meaning behind them? You know that whole Holocaust and WW2 thing.

I was thinking more along the lines of something like these.

I've got a set of Nazi cufflinks sat in a drawer here somewhere, can't see any harm in it, not like I follow Hitler or agree with anything he did.

I don't agree with anything he did either but I have to say the SS uniforms were very nice. All black with the skulls. Also the German officer uniform was very good too.

Despite everything they did, those Nazis had a good sense of style.

I don't think so. White washing over the dark parts only makes you forgetful and vulnerable.

A key part of any fascist state bro. Just as any totalitarian socialist state such as the USSR has to have shitty uniforms.

Personally, once I have some cash, I'm going to start my own collection of Nazi stuff. Might try get my hands on vintage USSR stuff too if possible.

True though.

No, they should not be illegal.

It's kind of like whitewashing over the fact that, for most of the 20th Century, the Democrats were the racist, anti-Civil Rights Party.

That's what I was told via report. Didn't verify, so I dunno tbh.

That is absurdly funny ATG.

Just so everyone knows he deleted an image of a swastika because a German may have inadvertently stumbled upon a graphic on the internet and thus doing so they would be supposedly considered criminals. Apparently the gestapo is alive and well... or perhaps people just go about censoring the interwebz without verifying or understanding the spirit of the law.

So would you tie this into the confederate flag being displayed by Southerners and Southern States?
