And here's an anti-Trump sign:
And now there are a bunch of acts of graffiti and internet art whose meanings are officially undecipherable:
The law of entropy tells us that once two meanings have been mixed, they can never be unmixed. (Sorry meaning purists.) In this election, the different intentions behind these swastikas have become so entangled that if you tried to use a swastika sarcastically it would create a semantic black hole that would rip apart the semiotic-time continuum. To avoid this, the swastika should no longer be used by either side. Instead, we have a couple of suggestions for each group. For liberal critics of Mr. Trump, even a frowny face would be a more effective way to communicate your disapproval. Sure, it lacks the gut-punch quality of a swastika but remember that to a disturbingly large proportion of the electorate, that's a gut-punch of joy. Perhaps this is a nice compromise:
On the White Nationalist side, perhaps adding a thumbs up next to the swastika or Hitler 'stache, or maybe giving the swastika a cool pair of sunglasses would do the trick. We hate to help this side with their messaging but for the sake of clearly identifying these people, we made this for you:
Hopefully at least now we'll at least be on the same page as to who is hating who.
