OK. I f****** had it with his damn swastikas! They are offensive. Yes, but once he leaves a message somewhere the swastika is unwillingly left there against will. GOD DAMMIT I HATE THOSE SWASTIKAS!

Vote for if you want HGA to remove the swastika from his signature.

Vote against if you're a Nazi person who is actually okay with it.

    • Comment: I agree with Socky there. This is an ancient symbol of whatnot, even the Egyptians used it. However, it always depends on personal intentions, so I will need a reaction from HGA himself before I can give my vote. Also, please keep in mind if you ban swastikas, you'll probably have to consequently forbid every symbol that can be linked with ideologies which do not respect the Human Rights Chart or do tolerate mass-murder. Communism (hammer and sickle), Fascism (axes) and symbols of terrorist movements for instance will definitely be a victim as well | Cartoonist | Spit it out! | 01:37, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
      Who said anything about banning them? The vote is to force the guy to remove it, not ban them... hells, it doesn't even preclude him from putting it back right after. -— Lyrithya 01:49, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

      No one has ever said that indeed, but other users who put the same symbol in their sig at some point in the future may expect a similar vote? Just to prevent another new debates about the same thing why not make a rule which says something about censorship in general. I mean, if this would ever turn into a legal dispute (I hope not), you have a clear policy to present which says the responsability is totally up to the user. And what about admins doing that?

I mean, he ain't quite surely a nazi, he just uses the swastika, but, if he was one, a real nazi made of flesh, bone and iron, removing a symbol he believes on would be mocking. Like, if you love some fucking bible or something, and you'd have a christian cross or something in your userpage, BUT then it is removed by others because 'it offens Hindus'.

Aimsplode's Response

First off, as the title can point out, I would like to be referred to as HGA from now on, instead of my actual username. Why? Because using my username = more search results generated for my username = not good for me. Please simply use HGA to refer users to my page(s). Thanks.


The swastika was adopted by Adolf Hitler to be the NSDAP's ("Nazi" party, short for National Socialist German Worker's Party) primiary symbol, or logo, because of it's striking-ness and very rigid outline. It was to instill a sense of pride and power in the person who viewed it. This worked perfectly, and practically the whole German nation became swept up under the Nazi symbolism. (Sig runes were also used for logos, such as the Schutzstaffel insignia and other (para-)military organizations.

The swastika was originally an ancient symbol meaning roughly ""to be good" or "to be with a higher self", along with a more recent (okay, not that recent) meaning of "harmony of space and time". Just FYI.

I love the swastika. I find it bold, and very rigid, just as Hitler intended (usually, only the Nazi-stylized version, such as this). It's almost mesmerizing how beautiful such an object can be. That is why I use it as my person identification symbol. I want to be associated with this figure. If I didn't, then hell, I wouldn't be using it.

Another reason is my facination with the Nazi Party, and Hitler: the order, regimented society, propaganda. He was a fucking genius, Hitler. He wrote all his own speeches, made his own tours, just to keep the public in a trance. He had human psychology to an art. He new how to run his country perfectly. His only blunder was attacking the Russians, which was caused by his lust for world domination too quickly. If he had kept pounding the British, and had a little more patience, surely he would have won. This lifestyle, rise and fall, rage and grace, interests me to no end. I love spending time picking apart the various aspects of Nazi society, and Hitler's life.

A few of my views fall in line with Hitler's, but nothing substantial. I would not be massacring people, of course: that only make conflict. And in this day in age, it is impossible to pull off such a feat as him in such secrecy.

In conclusion: I use the Nazi-stylized swastika to represent myself because of it's beauty, boldness, and long historical roots. And while I do imagine it offends quite a few Jews, who I don't care about, I will proceed to use it anyway.

Do note that I am NOT a Holocaust denier/conspiracy theorist asshole. I'm a historian, not a crazy. I know what happened.

And for the grand finaaaahhhhlllyy:

I am atheist, bisexual, and {usually} liberal. I do not believe that a person can always be one-sided, because the lines are arbitrary and it's pointless to fuss over it. If you would like my whole schpeil, ask my on my talk page and I can answer. I believe that all people who believe in a deity are nuts, and insane, and should be committed to a mental asylum: there is no proof there is one, while there is tons of proof there isn't. I hate Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Scientologists all alike. There is no discrimination here.

Thank you, and god bless you FUCK NO. BE A FREE THINKER, AND ONLY BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU TRULY KNOW: EMPIRICAL KNOWLEDGE! SCIENCE FOREVER!

Hey, it's okay man. You're not the first to challenge my use of Nazi-related symbolism. In fact, Matthlock wrote a pretty nasty rant on my talk page a while ago calling me a Jew-slaughtering bastard or something of the like, and that I had killed his family. It gets annoying to explain it over and over. AimsplodeL A B O R A T O R I E S01:47 12 January 2013
Yes, I am just so use to people misusing Nazi stuff and worshipping Hitler. Sure, he isn't really a good person. But he has done some good things. But he fucked up with the Holocaust.

Indeed. His Reich sparred the invention of many things we see today. Take, for example, the jet aircraft.
Also, here is Matthlock's message: "...I hate the insignia on your signature. I absolutely hate Nazis. I'll tell you this you dirty bastard, if the Nazis won World War II, my grandmother would be killed, and if my grandmother was killed, there would be no me! So that's what I hate your sig, you indecent, sub-human, dirty, anti-Semitic bastard!" AimsplodeL A B O R A T O R I E S02:00 12 January 2013

I'm not going to argue with you if it's your motivation to reappropriate the swastika as you say, instead of just using it to be a provocative ass (something which, as you know, you have absolutely zero history of ever being), but it kinda sorta gives me the idea that you might be blowing your sexually provocative depiction of Hitler out of proportion when you say his "only" mistake was invading Russia. Good for you if you really possess the knowledge and perspective to objectively analyze Hitler's militaristic, economic, and governmental methods that kept the engine of his personal cult running. But a good number of times in this response, you've really toed the line between "free speech" and "completely insensitive, self-possessed hate speech." Reposting Matthlock's comment, completely unnecessarily and unsolicited-ly, is an arrogant brag and a stroke of your dick. So no. This response did not convince me that you deserve to keep that symbol in your signature. On the contrary, it convinces me that you are still the same arrogant, provocative asshole who used to be indefinitely banned (oh yeah, you WERE that! I take back what I said in that last parenthetical). --Littleboyonly.jpg TKFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFCK Oldmanonly.jpg 03:21, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

It is well-known that TKF is an ignorant twit, and this post only secures him that title. On Hitler's quest to world domination, invading Russia in OpBarbossa was the mistake he made. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. If he had only waged a one-front war, he would've destroyed England, and then could have turned right around and wiped Russia off the map. And, last time I checked, I wasn't a Neo-Nazi Hitler-worshiping cult member. I was a historian who respects the massive amounts of innovation Hitler's Reich caused, while at the same time noting it's extermination policies were terrifying. Without Hitler, the world would be much worse off today. Japan wouldn't have attacked Pearl Harbor without an alliance, which means the US would still be in the Great Depression, which in turn means innovation and knowledge and funding don't exist. Hitler practically saved humanity, or else when the a-bomb was invented and researched, it could have wielded much worse results without the testing put into it. AimsplodeL A B O R A T O R I E S15:13 12 January 2013
You know, when A*msp*d* said that everything should be based on empirical knowledge, I was a little worried, because in some areas empirical knowledge is simply impossible to be attained and the nihilism some atheists advocate in relation to such areas doesn't always provide the most practical or most intelligent way of going about it. But I'm glad to see that not all A*mspl*d* believes is based on scientific knowledge. There are so many things wrong with what he said up there, scientifically as well as logically in general. For one thing, q follows from p, therefore q is impossible without p is not a valid form of argument, because it assumes that q can only be caused by p. A*mspl*d* asserts that the only possible outcome of a world without Hitler is a worse outcome, based on absolutely nothing but his assumption that this is the case (and maybe popular culture). This is also wishful thinking, because he wants to believe this to justify his admiration for Hitler.

Why would you base opinions off of things you don't know, Socky? That's just stupid. Which is why I only believe in empirical knowledge, or THINGS WE ACTUALLY KNOW. And indeed what I said is true: without "P", "Q" wouldn't happen, or happen in the order that it did. Conditions, conditions. Without the Reich's driving intellectual force, we would be centuries behind. AimsplodeL A B O R A T O R I E S19:03 12 January 2013
Basing opinions off of the delusion that you know and understand the whole of reality. Now that's stupid. And apparently you are so arrogant as to think that you possess such perfect knowledge, because you pretend to know all driving factors of human history in the past century. Yes, without Hitler, things would've been different. But stripping history of everything Hitler, directly or indirectly, caused or contributed to causing and positing that none of it could've possible happened without Hitler is sheer retardation and lack of imagination. Any war where the US got itself involved would've helped solve the Great Depression. No need for Hitler there at all. Any major war would've given impetus to technological innovation. Why do you seem to think that Hitler was the only man capable of setting off a war during that period of the 20th century?
