its not as bad as your making it out to be. would you be saying the same thing if they posed infront of the Confederate Flag or the Japanese Rising Sun from WW2 no you wouldn't. your just jumping all over them because they are american service men, what if they were from another country it wouldn't even make it on this site or event he news. because they are american srevice men you jump all over them, thing is you don't know what they go through at all.




It's not surprising. USA continues to show their true colors, Ignorant #s. Obviously these dumb american marines never went to elementary school, because they would've taught their imbred asses that that's a Nazi symbol. Lol, this is a joke, The government is a bunch of Nazis


just a genious answer to this thread, man i love denying ingnorance also, i garuntee you the marines in this picture are more educated then you are and more honorable a human being then you will ever live up to be but thankyou for your pure ignorance

A little secret:

Symbolism is what you make of it. That flag only looks nazi to the people who are scared of it.

Why don't people look at that and see "Shaving shame"? Or "saving seals"...?

"Smell snakes"..."suck sauce"..."sausage slicer".

Why? Why does it have to be nazi? Because it looks that way? Do you know the amount of things that are similar to bad ones that you use every single day?

Here is something that is not a secret at all,
That is by far the most infantile and obvious intentionally naive explanation i have seen in the thread thus far and ,that says something.


Following this reasoning they can start walking about with a red wrap around their arm with a black swastika depicted on a white background claiming it is a depiction of a cookie cutter. Now it is clear to me that that would not be a problem for you but i can assure you that you would find yourself very alone and unsupported in that believe.

I don't care. Really I don't.

You guys and your silliness totally ruined one of the best fetish gear cohorts in the fetish scene. I'll never forgive you.

You sound very ignorant.

They did their job, and they did it well.

Their side might have lost, but it doesn't mean that they were not good at their job.

your just jumping all over them because they are american service men, what if they were from another country


You're completely wrong.

I would be just as disgusted if this was done by troops who wern't American.

So then what do you want out of all this, to get your hate out?


My "hate"? What hate do you see? I feel disgusted and disturbed, not hateful.

You know who had a lot of hate though? The SS, hence why they murdered millions in what they perceived as "vengence".


Right, I'm just a soldier, a follower, another way of saying sheep. I can't possibly understand what a flag is


You already solidified this fact when you said that flags are nothing but "pieces of cloth".


Okay then, what the hell are you talking about national causes for? What was all this about, did your anti-US bias slip through and you accidental painted the entire US as Nazis? What does a sniper units flag have to do with a national cause?

Nothing, the unit's flag is irrelevant.


Are you for real? You think that my opinion on this story stems from "anti-US bias"?

I mean, have you ever considered why people might express what you consider to be "anti-US bias"? Perhaps Americans tend to do incredibly offensive and inexcusable things, and those of us who are not American tend to react negatively to it? Or is the American way the perfect model for global society, and nobody should question something like American soldiers adopting nazi symbols?

Last time I checked, Canadians and Americans alike were allied in shooting those who wore SS insignia. But that was 60 years ago, generations in the past, so now I guess it is all fine and dandy if we just "recycle" history while ignoring the significance behind it.

I mean, seriously, do you even have any idea of what the SS symbols even mean? They aren't "lightning bolts"- they are runic "S" from the eldar furthark. The whole point of that symbolism used in the SS insignia is directly related to the occultic foundation of the Nazi Empire, even to the Vrill Society itself.

No. That only means you don't know what infantile means.

Oh, wait. Maybe I should get "all serious" and talk about serious business. I should really be offended by that, because you say so. It's not like I actually come from a country affected by world war 2 and have a family past that has suffered by it. It's not like my country was affected by a dictatorship, and it's not like I have family that died fighting in a war made up by a dictator. No, of course.

Apparently, it's you who is going to teach me the value of life.

I'm infantile because you say so? I'm infantile because I actually try to laugh at this, instead of pushing hard on my keyboard, doing some forum rage spreading...because of a flag with 2 styled S's on it? Right.


Following this reasoning they can start walking about with a red wrap around their arm with a black swastika depicted on a white background claiming it is a depiction of a cookie cutter. Now it is clear to me that that would not be a problem for you but i can assure you that you would find yourself very alone and unsupported in that believe.


By your reasoning we shouldn't even make jokes about Hitler since they can hurt somebody's feelings.

Let's ban all these symbols and all these meanings. Let's stop using them altogether.

Oh wait... That's called censorship. I wonder who used that?...hum...

What people are showing in this thread is that they can't even handle memories that aren't their own, that the first response is an emotional response instead of thinking this through and not make a bigger deal than what it is. I guess that by your definition, that's being really mature.

Yep. Seriously, you guys have no natural sensible limit to frig off on. Your nonsense has actually crossed over and become so annoying I think that you are starting to MAKE more of the people you are trying to get rid of.

I don't support Nazi-ism. The SS were good at their jobs. I really don't care if you don't like that. It is the truth.

Sorry. They were good at their job. One nation just about stormed a large chunk of the civilized world.

I don't have to like what you do to recongize that you might be good at it.

Big flippin' deal.

I knew that this would be a hot topic here when I saw it on the news yesterday...and here we are 19 pages later.

I swear some of you people go day by day looking for something to be offended by. Looking for something to whine and moan about.

Get over yourselves.

I am also a Marine with 2 tours in Iraq. I did 26 months total in country (13 months each for those who are math challenged)

Most of you lack the required nuts to even go through boot camp, let alone go to Iraq or Afghanistan. Until you do, perhaps you should just shut your mouths.

To my Brother Marines on this site...
Semper Fi


Now, let the flames begin to fall from the military haters

Nazis stole a whole pile of pre-Nazi symbols, and now nobody is allowed to so much as look at those symbols lest their minds be HIJACKED by evil Hitler-Magick.

Co-Co Chanel and Hugo Boss somehow survived being associated with Nazis.

Symbols - they can be taken back. They belonged to other groups first, and if the rabid frothing anti-Nazis would hush up it would have happened already.

I understand where you're coming from to a certain extent.

The Waffen SS (that is the military section) were skilled militarily and utterly fanatical.

The Wehrmacht were also very skilled and probably one of the greatest armies the world had seen since Roman times.

However it's what the SS represent and what they did, that makes what the marines did so unpleasant.
