HONG KONG, China (AP) --German and Israeli diplomats have lashed out at a Hong Kong fashion company for using swastikas and other Nazi party symbols in a clothing line and to decorate its chain of stores.
The firm, which calls itself http://www.izzue.com., produced a range of T-shirts and pants with Nazi symbols printed on them. One T-shirt has a portrait of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler standing on a laurel.

Not any worse than the Che t-shirts that so many wear.

I thought it is Heckler & Koch.

(So how do you like taxation with representation?)
I suppose the Germans will next be suing them for trademark infringement.
If the store replaced the fascist design with this...
...there would be no further uproar -- in spite of the 30,000,000 innocent deaths caused by the Russian communists and the 100,000,000 innocent deaths caused by all communist countries, past and present.

"...the Che t-shirts..."
Next door to me, in Berkeley, Mao posters, t-shirts, etc. are in ample evidence. 65,000,000 innocent deaths don't bother these people because communists were the murderers.

***Cheng added that the designer wanted the clothes to have a military theme and did not realize that the Nazi symbols would be considered offensive. ***
Now THAT's a crock! No, wait...maybe this designer was educated in the USA public schools and never learned about the Nazis.

I just watched the movie, "The Pianist" last night. Talk about sad.
I heard this the radio today in my car and wanted to post the same thing you just said. It creeps me out to see kids wearing "Che" T shirts or have red star t-shirts. They have no clue.
