I find that whenever a bs conspiracy site claims people are considering something.... it is plBS meant to hype up people.

How the hell does banning Runes deter hate groups?


It wouldn't really, neo Nazis in Germany still wear the swastika. The reasoning would be aimed at those groups. The Nazis were fond of using Norse/Germanic symbolism.


The Problem, they are too stupid to realise, is that the Swastika is an ASIAN symbol, used throughout Asia from India to Cambodia.....it is not, nor never has been a European symbol.

Now corn dollies, and the like, Gaelic and Celtic designs, Runes, Druids, Greek and Roman, as well as Neanderthal paintings of Mammoths, Are European.

Ban them all too?



Before WWII, the 45th Infantry Division of the Oklahoma Army National Guard used the swastika as its emblem. Of course it was dropped eventually for obvious reasons. Wiki: “The division's original shoulder sleeve insignia, approved in August 1924, featured a swastika, a common Native American symbol, as a tribute to the Southwestern United States region which had a large population of Native Americans.”

Putin is laughing his a** off at the stupidity of the West.

While we are chasing our tails, it's business as usual in Russia, Japan, Poland, and other sensible countries.

So what do the runes say that "they" don't want us to read would be my thinking on the matter?

Good luck banning a language/alphabet in this day of age. LoL

Also, some of the sites that contain these runic inscriptions are sure to be World Heritage owned or supported, so good luck with that potential minefield.

Are we sure this is verbatim?

Because if so, it essentially equates to burning books.


I think its about what the runes represent, not what any specifically say.

This is rooted in getting rid of the viking heritage I imagine.

Disgusting that the world seems to run on two political ideals, one of which wishes to control what people think, say and do, and the other which wishes to control what people think, say and do.

They just both have different ideas of what those things should be.

Liberals and Conservatives allover the world are the enemies of freedom.

I'm not an enemy of freedom, sir.

And that is an intellectually lazy take.

Kind of ironic, in an effort to stamp out hate groups the Swedish government is becoming one.

Depends which way you look at it, the swastika was an imported symbol as much as religion and language were, as in it wasn't really. Where history is concerned we can't always solidify things as fact, the symbol or versions of it could've easily been developed independently from Asian influence. Plenty of evidence suggests it did...

When it comes to Northern Europe we can only rely on accounts by the likes of Romans or Greeks for written history, everything else is archeological work and guess work... Linking things and filling the gaps.

Anyways symbols mean different things to different people, I doubt they can ban runes as it would essentially be like banning the cross or the crescent moon... Hell they'd have to ban symbolism itself eventually.

Well that's interesting, thanks for that.......Tho, "American Natives" did originally come from Asia.....I guess it is a Very old symbol.

I bet you didn't know there was a "Swastika Motorcycle".......well there was, from 1915!!!

My friend owns one.....it was made in Australia......
