    Like when Trump spoke in front of a double-headed eagle presidential seal ?!

    For those who don't know... Putin's Russian eagle is double-headed. Perfect symbol for a double-agent!

    Sure you would, because otherwise it belongs in another part of the forum that you are too wise to fall for.

    Given the runes around the edge of the badge I'm going with this being some obscure symbol dug up by the Thule Society. I've done a fair bit of reading on Nazism & WW2 & I don't recall having seen it before, so it doesn't appear to be especially common.

    Given that most conservatives have the historical memory of goldfish and this is pretty obscure I don't see a commection. Patterns do recur. Personally I'd be more concerned that most Republicans have decided that elections only matter when they win & they win & tha tits OK for a President to have people like Bannon & Miller advising him.

    I knew that I had seen that design somewhere but didn't immediately connect it with the emblem. I remember seeing it decades ago in a college course I took on the Holocaust. So, don't think you somehow *missed* something. It's not easily recognizable.

    Yeah yeah, of course. The explicit messaging by having people like Bannon and Miller on his team is much more substantial, not to mention the consistent endorsements from the US Nazis like David Duke.

    However, the layout of that stage does perfectly match a symbol that the internet is chock full of references which tie it to Nazis, so, do to your fair bit of reading you are suspect of something you weren't previously aware of? Not to be rude, but that does seem to be your position.

    Edited.

    The thing is, Trump is gone, or should be. But he's not. He's here at CPAC and here they are carrying forth with completely populist and nationalist tropes without any substance. Perfect. The Party of Trump, full of potheads....

    And Richard Spencer - don't forget 'Heil Trump'.

    I'm sure that if you look for information on the symbol there is a lot of stuff about its link to the Nazis, but that doesn't mean the link is well known outside some very small circles.

    Please tell me this is a reference to Sam Jackson's line in Pulp Fiction.

    Hmmm, yes, that is pretty blatant, isn't it. Well it wouldn't be surprising if this is what really drives the republican party now. It is really the new American Nazi Party...or maybe really the old one.

    .

    I was surprised back when Trump touted his theme "America First"... because it reminded me of the anti-war [anti-WW2] "America First Committee." But no one else appeared to understand the analogy.

    Where's the circle surrouding the diamond? Dude, it's standard theater in the round set up with a square stage with walkways on and off. But way to OD on Nazi regalia and of course from stage front it's upside down... But other than that it's in the ball park. But so are other things.

    You don't understand Godwins Law. It refers to the evolution of internet arguments. This thread is about an observation of symbolism used. And it isn't like Q drops. It is an exactly duplicate.

    I did. Also, Hitler was a Germany First guy.

    Trump's first wife and the friend who gave it to him, said trump kept a collection of essays by Hitler in his nightstand.

    Same principle. The idea that a forum set was deliberately arranged like a Nazi symbol is absurd, and it makes the whole OP Godwin-like.

    In this case they aren't. German regimental insignia going back more than a century.

    When will Lonny Pie leftist get their act together.Using cartoonish
    examples with no verifiable value is just downright proof as to who
    they are.Where no definable Historic examples are even proffered.
    Like Kiddies in grade school rushing home to complain at the dinner
    table what scary stuff they learned from the new teach at public school.
    Who is no longer a female but a proud butch male.
    Who's dream is to look as cute as Hitler's # 1 storm trooper.
    The infamously Ugly { big scar on his face } Ernst Rohm.

    Rohm was executed in Hitler's "Night of the Long Knives" purge!
