Clothes retailer Topman pulls jacket that featured Nazi insignia – NY Daily News

Fashion retailer Topman has withdrawn a clothing line that featured Nazi insignia.

The embarrassed clothier apologized after the blunder was pointed out by an online shopper.

The “grunge look” Horace jacket — which sold for around $300 — featured an emblem worn by SS troops.

The ancient Norse odal rune, reports The Mirror, is similar to a swastika and was used to symbolize Hitler’s belief in a pure Aryan race.

Actually, the symbol wasn’t a “Nazi” symbol.  It was an ancient Norse rune the the Nazis appropriated for their own (mis)use.   Just as the swastika long predates the Nazi use of that symbol, too.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
