In yet another mind-blowing example of insensitivity, if not sheer ignorance, the anonymous millennial (a blatant assumption because most older adults couldn’t be this stupid) staff of KA Design have decided to offer up yet another originality-challenged reboot: “The New Swastika”….
It’s sad because you could use the same verbiage from the KA Design video and apply it to the rainbow: a joyous symbol with Biblical significance that was co-opted by the gay rights movement.
Can you imagine the collective squeals if the rainbow were taken back using their own words…?
But one day, gay militants. They took the rainbow, put it on a flag, and turned it into Hatred, Fear, War, Racism, Power. They stigmatized the rainbow forever. They limited our freedom. The rainbow is coming back, together with Peace, Love, Respect, Freedom. Introducing the new rainbow!
But here’s the left’s attempt to assume ownership of another symbol and change the meaning to one they can tolerate.
Little do so many not know how close liberals and Nazis really are. Mix that with arrogant youth and you get the immediate, twisted defense and justification of a symbol that had deadly implications for millions.
Here at KA Design we respect everyone’s opinion. We don’t want to be hypocrite. Freedom is a human value that should be equally shared by everyone. Considering the reactions to our campaign, we notice that people feel unsecure and even offended by our products. We understand every single one of these people. They don’t want to break the strong bond between the symbol and the atrocities committed by Nazism. They all think we want to completely erase from the minds of everyone these facts.
In reality, we want to do the opposite. Us and them, we are on the same side, fighting for the same ideals.The new meanings given to “our Swastika” wouldn’t make any sense if not based on the previous ones. We want to promote love and peace to remind everyone that mankind can be better that what it currently is and was in the past. It’s not in our interest making everyone forget about this past.
We have some plans for the future that we are not going to reveal. We hope to be able to extend our Swastika line to new design concept and colors, while keeping our current peace message. Our dream is to feel free to use this symbol without any kind of limitation, however we prefer.

In your face, just like those currently using both the swastika and rainbow.
A perfect match.
