Pajamas Media: OWS Twitter Hashtag is a ‘Neo-Swastika Power Symbol’

The smell of desperation

We have a winner in today’s Sweepstakes of Wingnut Derp: our erstwhile friend Zombie, at our erstwhile employer Pajamas Media, pushing one of the most ridiculous (yet inadvertently hilarious) smears of Occupy Wall Street we’ve seen to date: The PJ Tatler � Bizarre neo-swastika reminiscent of “The Great Dictator” used as power symbol by OWS leaders.

Don’t these people see an echo of the swastika in their new power symbol? Don’t they realize that the early Nazi Party was (among other things, obviously) also overtly anti-capitalist? (“Hitler began to make the [Nazi] party much more public, and he organised the party’s biggest meeting yet of two thousand people, for 24 February 1920 in the Staatliches Hofbr�uhaus in M�nchen. … It was in this speech that Hitler, for the first time, enunciated the twenty-five points of the German Worker’s Party’s manifesto… In general, the manifesto was anti-Semitic, anti-capitalist, anti-democratic, anti-Marxist, and anti-liberal.”) Don’t they know that the early Nazis tried to garner sympathy with street rallies and marches?

Here’s the bizarre and sinister “neo-swastika power symbol” that has Zombie all lathered up and ranting about Nazis:

Folks, it’s a Twitter hashtag.

And now, you’ll have to excuse me while I literally LMAO.
