Plastic model shows American Swastika that predated German Socialist swastika use.

New discoveries show that American soldiers used the swastika as their
symbol early in World War I, and up to 1941, against Germany. The
symbol was used by Americans in the French Escadrille Lafayette, by
the 45th Infantry Divison, on Boeing P-12 planes.

The discoveries are in the growing body of work by the historian Dr.
Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets"). He has previously shown how
socialists in the USA originated the modern swastika as overlapping
"S" letters for "Socialists" joining together in a utopian "Socialist
Society."

There is also evidence that the U.S. flew Spad XIII Fighter planes
that bore swastikas in WWI. see

The photos show swastikas that are not in the S-direction, however, it
is possible that the actual fighters bore swastikas in the S-
direction, or in both directions, or that the modern plastic models
(1984 American Plastic Model Co. Ltd, made in Korea) were designed to
distance the U.S. military from the use of the classic S-direction
swastika that pre-dated used by the National Socialist German Workers
Party.
There is also evidence that the military still uses swastika symbolism
in the Navy's Coronado Seabees Barracks in California (as shown below
and/or in this photo).

During the time when American soldiers adopted the swastika, the
symbol was associated in the USA with the growing popularity of
"military socialism," a dogma touted by Edward Bellamy, the American
author of the international bestseller "Looking Backward," (1887)
known as the bible of National Socialism.
A postcard from that period and made in the USA bears a swastika and
the wording: "Lucky Star - May this emblem protect you well from every
bullet, every shell."

It is interesting to note that the swastika employed by the military
in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics also combined the swastika
with the star.

The symbol was also famous in the USA as alphabetical symbolism for
socialism in the Theosophical Society (TS), from 1875.

In 1888, the Theosophical Society teamed up with Bellamy's Nationalist
movement for military socialism. The "Bellamy swastika" spread.
By 1915, the symbol was also widely popular as an ornamental "Good
Luck" symbol, as in a 1915 postcard showing the American flag posed
favorably with a swastika.

By adopting the symbol, American soldiers influenced the swastika as
an alphabetic symbol of socialism around the world, where the symbol
had previously been a generic ancient symbol.
Graduates/victims of government schools may find it hard to believe:
Americans used the straight-arm gesture, wore swastika shoulder
patches and flew planes adorned with swastikas in war against Germany,
and they did it all decades before the same was done under the
National Socialist German Workers' Party. The USA was the origin of
that behavior under German National Socialism.

What a moron the old man is. He doesn't even understand the topic. And he does not dispute the fact the swastika, although an ancient symbol, was also used as overlapping S-letters for "socialism." Its appearance was also altered. It was not the same symbol used by Native Americans. The old man makes the usual naive lumping of the symbol used by native Americans, hindus, Tibetans and everyone. then the old man evades and concedes the point about the symbols modern use as alphabetical symbolism. The old man does not even realize that Americans did not always call it a swastika. The old man is so stupid that he does not know that German socialists did not call it a swastika. He is probably from government schools. he could not address a topic if he had to. That being explained, the old man needs to go join Dennis in the killfile....

let us guess, you posted that drivel twice because you have add and need to see it twice?is that white out on your monitor screen? since your such a self proclaimed expert, why didn't you enlighten the group as to the origins, definiton and correct useage? it's very simple to criticise and rag on someone. any 4th rate troll does it. why don't you show us just how knowledgeable you are? here, do the easy one's like, how old is the useage, what difference does the orientation of symbol make, what tribes of amerind peoples used it? any fool can troll. anyone who actually knows what they are talking about will treat others decently. we suspect this was not the response anyone with real understanding would make. you didn't bother to even cut and paste some info. never seen your nym before. this was just a drive by troll. ignorance means a lack of knowledge. stupid is as stupid doea.
