I like the idea and rendering of the zeppelin, but I'd have a hard time voting for anything with a swastika.

In his defense, the Hindenburg HAD Swastikas on the fins...

You COULD Take of the black Swastikas and replace then with two "X"s... One Above and slightly to the Left....like Charlie Chaplins "Swastika" in "The Great Dictator"

i wonder if this reason for rejection only applies to the Tom Servo swastikas or swastikas in general since it was (and still is) a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Mithraism, religions with a total of more than a billion adherents worldwide.

isn't it the mirror image of a swastika that is sacred? I don't know why but for some reason I think I remember hearing that. And I realize that this shirt has both on it
