US Government Conspiracy to Honor Nazis ?

That is the claim in this article about an elderly care center in Alabama which looks like a swastika from the air.

The Jewish activist in the article, Segol, claims that the building here, along with some Naval barracks in California, are part of a government conspiracy to honor Nazis.

Please.

Not many people have helicopters so the offense is basically contrived. Plus the swastika has been used by many cultures (it can even be seen on the Buddhist temples) long before the Germans used it. So the swastika itself has no inherent evil, even if some people who used the symbol were evil.

I guess the ADL might get involved and charge the elderly who live there with inciting anti-semitism.

Let's not forget the Christian Crusaders who brandished the cross while committing some of the worst atrocities and acts of genocide the world has ever known.

Should we villify those who wear a cross? Of course not. Nor should we attack the swastika. It's just a symbol, and symbols have all kinds of meanings to different folks.

You don't villify people for the symbols they wear, or the shape of the building they live in. You can only villify people for one thing--what they do.
