It beggars belief how this person can possibly err on so many levels.
Not only is he a walt, a wannabe, a poseur, and all the rest, but he appears to have the collar insignia of Himmler’s rank.[/quote]
Not forgetting the California Highway Patrol Sunglasses :hand:
Very sad .Worst thing is that he probably has no idea how offensive he appears, to most of the World

De rigueur for the modern fascist.

Isn’t it just one wimpy guy in a Nazi uniform. Hardly representative of much now. A good drag through the mud would sort him out.

The other backwards looking people (and their behaviour) are a bit more worrying, but then again they are mainly conservative Christians and just espousing their views en-masse. As I said, it’s up to the gay lobby and their supporters to come out and counter it.

The pols just care about numbers, so that’s what’s going on here.

I’ve always felt that Taiwan is quite conservative and inwards looking all couched in a country bumpkin friendliness. It’s a strange mix.

The vast majority of Asia sees Imperial Japan as more evil than the Nazi’s. As popular as the Japanese are amongst the people of Taiwan, I doubt you’ll see anybody wearing the Imperial Japanese uniform or fly their battle flag.

Except for this:

We’re an equal opportunity offender. Maybe the only thing missing is a Rainbow Nation SA flag.

I showed this to a couple of my lab mates yesterday, and was amazed with the unfazed comments such as “so?” “that’s a cool uniform” “what’s the big deal.”

These are graduate students, well educated and don’t give a shit.

Keep in mind…we’re on an island. The Taiwan Straits is not just a body of water, it’s a bubble of space and time that protects us from the outside world.

Who really cares what happens beyond it if I don’t need to face it today? :cactus:

What they usually say is “it is not my history, it has nothing to do with me”. In an era of globalization, that is such a dangerous comment.

Is there like a resurgence of newonazis? There was a very vocal group in the ol country lately, protesting against -guess what?- immigration, gays, etc. Same old. As I said before, the ol country has a large Jewish population, who hid themselves in the furthest corner of the world to escape stupidity, ignorance and derived violence of this kind of thinking.

As previously stated, it is about empowerment, sick empowerment. With the economy in crisis and such uncertainty, many groups feel powerless. They need this façade, a paper tiger’s mask. Look, we are so fierce, we kill kittens and hate enough to kill defenseless crowds because we approve mass killings. Look at us, we are so strong because we are full of the power of hate. Problem is they can become a magnet when things turn from bad to worse.

As we say in Spanish, the worse blindness is from someone who does not want to see. The educational system fosters as you guys said an island, isolationist, superiority/inferiority dichotomy feeding, no reasoning ability kind of living. People that are easily led by the nose to their doom. It is not that they are ignorant, but the problem resides in that they do not want to learn and if you explain what is wrong with that thinking, they will turn against you for the loss of face. And in this resides the greatest tragedy.

Oh no, some people actually dare to have different beliefs from those of the small bubble of expats who post on this forum regularly!

There’s education and education. This may be slightly contentious, but it’s what invariably comes up when 2nd world countries focus on STEM education for economic reasons. When I was teaching at uni in the UK, the Hitler thing is a common theme in developing country - student engineers, etc.

Not evry country can afford a middle class who studies history, politics, etc.

Doesn’t explain Japan with the Nazi shit, though.

Fixed that for you.

Repaired your silliness, at least partially. Typical leftist sentiment on your part, much like “How could he possibly have won, nobody I know voted for Nixon!”

In Germany they put you in jail for wearing this.

I’m all for differences of opinion, but you’re really speaking out in support of Nazis? You need to either: crawl back into your cave; or sit down for a cup of coffee with me so we can discuss in a civil manner this truly bizarre belief you hold, and the even more bizarre belief that you think others would agree with you.

  1. Not American, know nothing about Nixon. Don’t care, not relevent.
  2. Nazis were socialists: it’s an abbreviation.
  3. My political affiliation are not and never have been remotely left-wing.

Are you American? Typical unsophisticated dualism. Left= ‘not like me’. :laughing:

Well educated but so immature

Hmmm. Sounds like someone has a blunt axe to grind.
Anyone that comes out as a Nazi, deserves more than their fair share of abuse.
Anyone that comes out as a Nazi, dressed to the nines in faux insignia, with fake decorations, and gaudy style, deserves far worse.

Varmint,

a little clarification if you are really pro-Nazi or just anti-gay-marriage would be in order. Then we could figure out if you really know what that Nazi stuff was all about, in case you would be pro. Because many on this island simply don’t have any idea what was going on there. No big deal, I hadn’t heard much about many massacres* in Asia before I came here. So all that is needed is probably a little exchange of info here.

  • Not saying that the Holocaust was of the same magnitude of course. It surely stands in a category of itself.

There is not much of a difference in what the Germans did in Eastern Europe and what the Japanese did in Asia.

Racial superiority complex. Check.
Concentration camps. Check.
Conquering an entire continent. Check.
Slave labor. Check.
Forced prostitution. Check.
Medical Experiments. Check.
A few million civilians systematically exterminated. Check.

No wonder the Japanese are called “the Germans of Asia”.

Protesting against gay marriage and being against it in general is totally fine (as is the opposite). But using Nazi ideology to argue against gay marriage? :no-no:

Not sure if you’re joking, but no, it’s not. The German swastika looks like an S, as does the one on these stickers (plus there’s the whole red border thing). Usually here the Buddhist/vegetarian swastika is the other way around.
