SO I was checking my mail and this head line caught my attention.
Apparently the Raelians, UFO cult, have been trying to take back the symbol of the swastika form the Nazis.

"Swastika Day Organizers Happy With Reaction To Pro-Swastika Banner Over New Jersey Beaches "

The article is short and sweet. I agree that the swastika is not inherently bad. It was used by a group of dumbasses a couple decades ago, but other than that it is an ancient symbol of good and peace.

I don't get why this UFO cult (Raelians) have used the swastika inside a Jewish star. I know that even the Jews used it in their worship before WW2, but still. If you want to "take it back" why set yourself at a disadvantage? Just fly the swastika with a link to your website on the banner.

The star of David is also an ancient symbol but I think they were going for shock value there.

The organizers of an international rally designed to improve the supposedly maligned reputation of the swastika expected to cause a furor when they hired a place to fly a banner featuring the Nazi symbol and they couldn't be happier with the results.

But their satisfaction came at the expense of people in New Jersey and New York who were upset to see the huge sign on Saturday equating swastikas with peace and love.

"It got the attention, so it was a success," said Thomas Kaenzig, organizer of "World Swastika Rehabiliation Day".

The event, the third of its kind, was designed to return the swastika to its original meaning, which in Sanskrit literally means "to be good," according to Kaenzig. The event was put on by a UFO religion known as the Raelians that claims to have 70,000 members. They believe the swastika is a symbol of the elohim, a race of extraterrestrials who they claim created humans.

Before Germany's Nazi Party embraced the swastika in the 1920s, for thousands of years it appeared on Hindu and Buddhist temples, in Native American artwork and even in Jewish synagogues in Israel.

Fellow Raelian Rick Roehr said the group's objective is to take back the swastika from the Nazis.

If you follow that link it is funny the crop on the photo only showing the so called Raelian women and not the dorks standing off to the right of the photo who probably joined because of the scantily clad Raelians.

I am almost convinced that women are hired for photoshoots and are not actual members LOL

The swastika dates back thousands of years if not longer. It shouldn't be abused by propaganda, and arrogance.
