Swastika ban: Is a ban on the Swastika justified?

  • Ban Reminds Us of Horrible History

    A ban on the swastika is justified because such a symbol reminds us of such a horrible time in our history. The law banning the symbol should remain on the books. Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it. The law is necessary in order to try to prevent neo-Nazis from ever gaining power again.

  • Yes ban it

    The symbol was used a thousands years before it was incorporated into the nazi but during the nazi time more than ⅔ of the population died and tons of hundreds of jews are still afraid of the symbol used today, they are traumatized and not just jews no no no

  • Ignorance Is Pointless

    This argument is a pointless way of trying to ignore our past, by banning a symbol which had a much stronger use in religion than in a terrible government. I mean, what's the point? Aren't we supposed to have the right to express our religion? Our beliefs? If so than why are we argue in over a stupid symbol which is supposed to represent good fortune and eternity, when a madman turned ourselves against it. That's what he wants us to do. Don't listen to Hitler's beliefs. Take pity in him. He killed 6 million people in vain, and the swastika is and will remain a popular sign of good intention, even in western culture. For crying out loud why do you even have to ban it from cinema?

  • The Swastika is an ancient Indo-European symbol representing luck and prosperity.

    Before Hitler's adoption of the symbol made it politically incorrect to use the symbol here in the West, it was found throughout Eurasian cultures as well as Aztec culture. Even companies like Coca-Cola and famous author Rudyard Kipling used the symbol as a good luck charm as late as the 1920s.

    Today, the swastika is still commonly used by both Buddhists and Hindus.

  • If you don't ban the British and Danish flags, nor the symbol of the Ku Klux Klan, then don't ban the Nazi symbol

    You Klansman in Denmark and Britain make me laugh. You wanna ban "Seinfeld" in favor of "Friends." Now you wanna ban the Nazis, yet you don't ban the Ku Klux klan which is worse. You pieces of crap who ban everything you don't like. Worthless in my eyes. Worthless lol

  • Swastika's should be banned if they're based from Nazism

    As other people might think, Swastika's weren't originally a symbol for Nazi's, it was originally from India, it is an ancient Hindu symbol that was stolen from the Nazi's to make it their own. So to ban it completely, would be a terrible thing done to the Hindus. If the Swastika is used for Nazism, then yes it should be banned but banning it from Indians isn't right.
