Brown Scare Comes To The WWE

>Hears Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries<

"Good God!" - Jim Ross, WWE announcer
"WHAT!?!?" - Jerry "The King" Lawler
 "That's... that's the Brown Scare's music!" - Jim Ross

No, there is not a new wrestler in the WWE called the Brown Scare. For a female wrestling figure, there was a little hiccup on the way towards the spotlight the WWE provides. Unfortunately, Zahra Schreiber had an instagram account with a long history of photos. Many were fine. While in the past she had caused a little wrestling scandal with naked pictures leaked (cute woman despite the tattoos), a specific picture was discussed with the worst word possible "problematic". Zahra Schreiber was fired by the WWE because one photo from years ago showed a wall decoration that had a swastika on it.

This was spun by the media as posting offensive pictures of Nazi imagery. If you look at the picture posted on Instagram, it reveals that she was not posting pictures of it deliberately or in any way to incite feelings. In comparison to punk rockers of a generation ago who wore swastikas or toyed with Nazi aesthetics, her little Instagram pic was insignificant. It is a picture of her room's wall that has a decoration that is visible in one corner of the picture. Schreiber was confronted by "fans" and responded better than mopes who just apologize and beg for forgiveness. Sadly, that was not enough. Schreiber would have to be dealt with.

Of course we know if this were Che, Mao, Stalin, Soviet or Khmer Rogue imagery, it would be okay. Commies rule, the rest of us suffer. Instead of noting the stupidity of this from a sports entertainment firm that has waded in the grossest stereotypes of all ethnicities, races, nationalities, regions, religions or genders, why not ask one question? What is an acceptable swastika appearance? Is it okay if it is on a book binding in your bookshelf? Is it okay on WW2 memorabilia? Is it only okay on memorabilia or books if the books are anti-Nazi or well respected historical reviews?

Memorabilia is tricky. I ask as many Americans have ancestors (my grandfathers and their brothers all did) that served in WW2, fought and killed Nazis. These men brought back items with Nazi insignia, things of the Italian Fascist government and even Vichy France markings. Can't you just imagine the SJWs treating Vichy France items like they are the worst thing in the world. "Oh no, you collected Vichy France memorabilia? Wow just wow, that's like collaborating with collaborators!" Are modern Americans allowed to have them, display them, and have them show up in random photos on social media?

Of course they can be okay in the right context. They are acceptable on one condition. One must clearly state how evil and horrible the Nazis were for killing millions of people in the worst genocide in the history of the world. Actually there are two conditions. The second is never ever state how the communists killed far more than the Nazis ever did and how the USG, academia and the media were complicit in enabling those governments and covering up their crimes.

About ten years ago, LICRA (the big Jewish + antiracist org. In France) sued Yahoo for listing Nazi WWII memorabilia for sale by a third party. Apparently, selling your old granddad's WWII Mauser, watches, medals, knives, belt buckles, hats or other war booty is a criminal offense in France.

Is a swastika OK if it's on the t-shirt of an Indian guy?

How can a Jewish looking girl with a Jewish name be a Nazi?
