There are no "SS" symbols on the pre ww2 badges, in case you didn't notice.


Well this pick was from 1941...



Looks like a Marine with a so-called NAZI sharpshooter badge!


Are you going to say that THIS MARINE, who fought during WWII, is a NAZI????


Your argument is DEAD (actually DOA).

First of all they didn't pose with the "Nazi SS" symbol, they posed with the "Scout Sniper" symbol. It isn't like this is new, the symbol has been used by snipers for years. Yes, it uses the same sig runes that were used by the Nazis, but it wasn't used with the intentions of supporting the Nazi regime. I fully believe anyone who thinks this spends too much time on the internet just looking for things to be pissed about.

Furthermore I wonder how many people who are offended by this are sitting at home with crosses on the wall, on a shelf, or maybe around their neck. For thousands of years people have murdered, raped, and pillaged while toting that symbol around.

And just on a sidenote unrelated to the OP I read earlier where someone said that Kiss was an acronym for "Knights in Satan's Service" Um, no... I love Kiss and have watched Gene & Paul themselves laugh about that one. While we are at it AC/DC also is not an acronym for "Anti Christ Devil Cult", and Richard Gere never had to get a hamster removed from his rectum lol.

I know it's hard but try and follow along, sir!



Why is the SS any more significant to you than the German cross or Skull and crossed bones?

Uhmmm...the pic on the far left is a GERMAN CROSS with SS IN THE MIDDLE!!! You can't act like they aren't one in the same as far as symbolism!!


Selective moral outrage?? Doesn't fit the OP's scenario??

What's your point?


Well the part you took out of my post wasn't the point just something I noticed. So if you scroll up to my to the start of my post you'll see my point about how all this is silly. Since were going to use association through guilt then I'll try it on you and see how you like it.

The only people that I've heard use the Term Zionist Jews and mean it were -
1. Nazis
2.Anti-semitics

So since you love to pull that phrase out of you're mental notebook, I can use guilt by association to pin you as a Nazi or Anti-Semitic. Even though the context you were using it in might not have meant to be Anti-semitic.


Zionists had Nazi ties.


However from this I'm sure you are a Nazi or Anti-semitic. Now I'm not going to get into the whole Zionists things because its a load crap and I don't care what Youtube video or racist blog you have is proof.

Would it be racist if I told you Prescott Bush (father of George Bush SR) had Nazi ties?


George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

www.guardian.co.uk...



President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show.

Prescott Bush (search) was one of seven directors of Union Banking Corp. (search), a New York investment bank owned by a bank controlled by the Thyssen family, according to recently declassified National Archives documents reviewed by The Associated Press.

There is a real world out there, you should go out and learn about it.

Your taunts of me being an anti-semite are laughable

Totally utterly ridicoulous thread SS on no!

Walk up to those men and call them a fascist nazi guarantee none will then get in your way back machine to 1930s Nazi Germany and do the same still wouldn't.

People throw that word around too much and too few actually know what it means and what it means if those men were fascist nazis they would put a bullet to the back of your head without a second thought.

That's what a nazi is just another thread trash talking the military which a dime a dozen and worth as much.

This was good thought i would post it agian:



Doubt anyone has the nerve to call Chaim Weitz a zionist or a fascist nazi and for those who don't know that is Gene Simmons.

AND...

That has what to do with the US Marines and the symbol they adopted decades after all of that? George Bush's father fought in WW-II as a NAVY pilot and was shot down in the Pacific.

Prescott Bush had no political power during the time the company he worked for profited from involvement with banks that backed the Nazis.

That’s a loose connection at best…and one you throw out when you’re losing an argument!


Nice try...again!!

It proves Nazism has been and still is strong withing certain circles of American society, especially among the military and elite. It's very relevant unless you choose to ignore the obvious big fat pink elephant in the room.

Proof positive of being a racist bigot who sees the zionist boogeyman everywhere.

Pretty damn sad.

This being America and all where there are socialists,communists,nazis, and everything else which is what the first Amendment was all about any school of thought can coexist with any other and people are free to take it or leave it.

Only a fascist nazi wouldn't understand that.

Well nooo, because that has nothing to do with race??? Also were talking about Anti-Semitics not racism. Do you need a dictionary?

Now thats all out of the way. What you're saying has no relevance to thread or me or even what we were talking about. George Bush wasn't Jewish, I don't didn't vote for or support George bush or even bring him up if thats what you were going for, and you were using the guilt by association argument again.


There is a real world out there, you should go out and learn about it.


I do learn about the real world, I suppose you want me to learn about your supposed "real" world? I not really one for Meta-physics friend.

I haven't mentioned any metaphysics BTW so I'm not sure what you're talking about.

That was cute, like some of your posts, but I shot your arguments down at every post, friend.

Take your tired arguments home unless you can stick with the topic of the OP and tell me how the symbols of Nazi Germany are limited to the SS runes.

I’ll wait!

Do you realise that at least 90% of the SS were young boys who had no bloody choice and had to do what they did under Hitler's regime?


By 1943, Nazi leaders began turning the Hitler Youth into a military reserve to draw manpower which had been depleted due to tremendous military losses. In 1943, the 12th SS-Panzer-Division Hitlerjugend, under the command of SS-Brigadeführer Fritz Witt, was formed. The Division was a fully equipped Waffen-SS panzer division, with the majority of the enlisted cadre being drawn from Hitler Youth boys between the ages of 16 and 18. The division was deployed during the Battle of Normandy against the British and Canadian forces to the north of Caen. During the following months, the division earned itself a reputation for ferocity and fanaticism. When Witt was killed by allied naval gunfire, SS-Brigadeführer Kurt Meyer took over command and became the youngest divisional commander at age 33.

As German casualties escalated with the combination of Operation Bagration and the Lvov-Sandomierz Operation in the east, and Operation Cobra in the west, members of the Hitlerjugend were recruited at ever younger ages. By 1945, the Volkssturm was commonly drafting 12-year-old Hitler Youth members into its ranks. During the Battle of Berlin, Axmann's Hitler Youth formed a major part of the last line of German defense, and were reportedly among the fiercest fighters. Although the city commander, General Helmuth Weidling, ordered Axmann to disband the Hitler Youth combat formations; in the confusion, this order was never carried out. The remnants of the youth brigade were "mowed down" by the advancing Russian forces; only two survivors remained

Aside from that... the combo of the flags is very unusual. Has anyone checked to see if it is legitimate or photoshopped propaganda?

One S symbol = DJ Fähnlein (Troop) Flag

why two together? The joining up of the flags doesn't sit well either (it looks fake)

I wouldn't find the story quite as weak if I believed that those screaming the loudest were at least half as offended as they appear to be. God forbid passing up an excellent opportunity to portray US soldiers as evil baby-killing types, or evil Nazi baby-killing types in this case.

Scout Snipers have been doing this for donkey's years and it's no less politically correct than blowing large chunks of flesh off people from a great distance. It barely registers on the non-PC-ometer of anyone who doesn't live their life wrapped up in cotton wool. Some of you lot really need to get out more.

Just another example of people on this site jumping the gun on some BS conspiracy to try to "wake people up". Get real, get over yourself, and get a life.
