USA Today: American Eagle Is A Nazi Symbol

The deranged anti-Trump, anti-American “journalists” at USA Today decided to fact check leftist Twitter users who claimed President Trump’s newest t-shirt is adorned with a Nazi eagle. Try to guess how they ruled.

Rumors have swirled on social media about the Trump campaign using an imperial eagle, also known as a “Nazi symbol” on t-shirts. USA Today decided to do a “fact check” on whether or not the claim was true. Of course, they ruled it was “true.”

There you have it, kids; the American eagle is now a Nazi symbol, because Orange. Man. Bad.

From the article: The T-shirt for sale on the Trump campaign’s website is called the “America First Tee.” The design includes a left-facing eagle, holding a round emblem with the U.S. flag inside and “Trump 2020” in a banner underneath. Both birds hold another national symbol in their talons, wings outstretched, with the head facing to the right to the viewer, or the eagle’s left.

A subtle difference you may not have noticed is the Trump tee doesn’t have a fucking swastika on it!

But the designs have key differences. In Trump’s, the eagle holds the American flag up near its chest; the Nazi symbol holds the swastika lower. Trump’s design also features “Trump 2020” below it. The American eagle is also a bald eagle, whereas the Nazi eagle is depicted as an all-black bird.

But besides that, it’s totes an homage to Hitler and the Nazis.

Our ruling: True

USA Today debuted in 1982, when I was in seventh grade. The only thing people thought interesting about the rag was it was printed in color. I believe it was the first newspaper to do so. Since then, the fish wrap has climbed every mountain to prove themselves more worthless than Buzzfeed, Vox, and the Washington Post combined.

Trash articles like these don’t bother me. I expect as much from these leftist hacks. What does bother me is the fact there are smart Americans who still read (and believe) this garbage.

WWII German Graves Cause Uproar

This is a heavy topic for a Sunday morning, but after reading the story, I needed to comment on it’s rampant stupidity. Feel free to unsubscribe if you will, but I’m going to be honest here. A brouhaha has emerged after an “advocacy group” found three German POW gravesites in VA cemeteries. The headstones were adorned with a swastika inside the Iron Cross.

Three German soldiers’ gravestones etched with swastikas will remain in national cemeteries in Texas and Utah, the Department of Veterans Affairs said Wednesday, despite demands from an advocacy group to have them removed.

The irony of erasing history so it will never be repeated continues to astound me.

The soldier above, who died at the age of 19, received the Knight’s Cross, Germany’s highest military award during World War II. Now, maybe I’m mistaken, but not all German soldiers were Nazis, and not all German soldiers slaughtered Jews. I have no idea what these soldiers did or didn’t do, but lumping everyone in with Himmler seems to be a galactic leap.

The VA’s National Cemetery Administration released a statement Wednesday that it “will continue to preserve these headstones, like every past administration has.”

“All of the headstones date back to the 1940s, when the Army approved the inscriptions in question,” according to the statement.

Wow, that evil Republican president must have been a monster!

[T]he VA said in its statement that “the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 assigns stewardship responsibilities to federal agencies, including VA and the Army, to protect historic resources, including those that recognize divisive historical figures or events.” For that reason, the headstones will remain.

Rabbi Joel R. Schwartzman, a retired Air Force colonel and chaplain, said the concern is the headstones could become a rallying point for white supremacists.

With respect to the Rabbi, this wouldn’t be a problem if the media ignored the story. Also, with respect, the Rabbi decided to continue his rant by invoking Civil War monuments, so you know where his ideology lies.

My points here are simple. First, if you think all German soldiers were Nazi war criminals, have at it. I respectfully and completely disagree. Second, if a headstone emblazoned with a (small) swastika sends you over the edge, that’s okay. Personally, I try to have the actions coincide with the times. Americans weren’t so quick to clutch their pearls at seeing a swastika in the 40’s. Finally, if you think removing these headstones is a good idea, but removing Civil War references is an assault on history, you’re a hypocrite.

Of course, if you read through this and have come to the conclusion that “Wyatt loves Nazis,” you should probably read another blog.
