So now texting the swastika is illegal? 14yr old gets arrested for texting it.
OAK PARK, Ill. – A student at Oak Park River Forest high school has been charged after several other students were sent an image of a swastika on their phones.

Police said a 14-year-old was charged with dissemination of an obscene message.

I find it disgusting that this child was arrested and tried for any crime. An image of a symbol is not obscene. Let alone a historic symbol.

Let's take a look at what the actual Ill. law says;

135/1. Transmission of obscene messages prohibited
Any person in this State who sends messages or uses language or terms which are obscene, lewd or immoral with the intent to offend by means of or while using a telephone or telegraph facilities, equipment or wires of any person, firm or corporation engaged in the transmission of news or messages between states or within the State of Illinois is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor. The use of language or terms which are obscene, lewd or immoral is prima facie evidence of the intent to offend.

Clearly this law was designed for sex crimes not for images of symbols. The law is being applied distortedly to go after this child and threaten anyone else who may send a text image of something that may offend someone.

So what is the history of the swastika?

The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika: "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix.

Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.

Even in the early twentieth century, the swastika was still a symbol with positive connotations. For instance, the swastika was a common decoration that often adorned cigarette cases, postcards, coins, and buildings.

During World War I, the swastika could even be found on the shoulder patches of the American 45th Division and on the Finnish air force until after World War II.

We are all aware that the Germans used the swastika but do we really know WHY they used it?

In the 1800s, countries around Germany were growing much larger, forming empires; yet Germany was not a unified country until 1871. To counter the feeling of vulnerability and the stigma of youth, German nationalists in the mid-nineteenth century began to use the swastika, because it had ancient Aryan/Indian origins, to represent a long Germanic/Aryan history.

By the end of the nineteenth century, the swastika could be found on nationalist German volkisch periodicals and was the official emblem of the German Gymnasts' League.

In the beginning of the twentieth century, the swastika was a common symbol of German nationalism and could be found in a multitude of places such as the emblem for the Wandervogel, a German youth movement; on Joerg Lanz von Liebenfels' antisemitic periodical Ostara; on various Freikorps units; and as an emblem of the Thule Society.

Re: So now texting the swastika is illegal? 14yr old gets arrested for texting it.
Now I understand the negative connotations of the symbol but in a world where we are told that you can take back the negative to help it lose power, the swastika seems to be a symbol that is untouchable in that realm.

We as a society worldwide have become so afraid of pictures that we fear them and the sight of them. We try to erase what we don't like because it may offend but we forget its history.

Thanks for the details. The swastika has been used as a world wide trigger for 80 years.

Everyone gets triggered by the swastika because of world war II yet they don't get triggered by Iran?

Fun fact;
Before it was called Iran it was Persia. It was changed during the war in honor of Hitler and his cause.

What was his cause?
To bring the aryan race to power.

Iran was a world used by the people at the time and still today. It roughly means "Land of the Aryans" or "Kingdom of the Aryans"

So Iran is literally named for the race of people Hitler wanted to rule the world. Yet we don't seem to triggered by that do we?

How about getting into an argument in a parking lot, making sure the person sees the outline of a pistol in your pocket, and then you leave an unspent round under the windshield wipers so that they see it when they return?
