Fascism Rascism

I know much of the banter on MountainBuzz is sporting and I am a relative newcomer to the slagging/sporting political debates. However, this story confirms that there is a deadly serious side.
Durango Herald News, Barack Obama

The sign was in the yard of a 2nd Grade teacher.




And before you say this is an isolated incident: Durango Herald News, FLC professor received note with swastika

As sad as it is to see it I think most of these occurances are just stupid kids out to vandalize something and not really much more than that or part of any kind of organized effort or group. If it wasn't the sign it probaly would have been the windows or tires of the cars parked on the street.

Maybe they were blessing the sign-

Swastika: - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Excerpt

Traditionally the swastika has been used as a symbol of good luck, welfare, prosperity or victory.

The symbol as it is used in Buddhist art and scripture is known in Japanese as a manji (literally, "the character for eternality"), and represents Dharma, universal harmony, and the balance of opposites. When facing left, it is the omote (front) manji, representing love and mercy. Facing right, it represents strength and intelligence, and is called the ura (rear) manji.

It was widely used by many southwestern tribes, most notably the Navajo. Among various tribes, the swastika carried different meanings. To the Hopi it represented the wandering Hopi clan; to the Navajo it was one symbol for a whirling winds (tsil no'oli'), a sacred image representing a legend that was used in healing rituals.

This has been going on with both sides:

"See what HAPPENS?"

25 homes and businesses with McCain signs were vandalized in Virginia... not just the signs

Why not? She (the owner, not the person in the photo) lives on a busy road. Doesn't the 1st Amendment cover Obama supporters?

I belive the "backwards" swastika was actually in American Indian peace symbol around long before the Nazis co-opted it by turning it backwards.

Bored teenagers drinking beer and driving around aimlessly will do exceptionally stupid shit. Not that I ever did any of that when I was a bored, stupid, drunk teenager...
