This seems like a hint at Kashmir.
Ne er understood how India is racist n looks down on others while being one of filthiest countries on earth.
the ice cream is that good.
I believe it's much older and used by many people around the world both now and in the ancient past with different variations. I think it was originally a solar symbol.
It is the filthiest country on earth if you look at street defecation among other things.
Didn’t know that...
Probably the same reason why characters like Churchill are popular in the West and not so popular elsewhere.
From what I understand, Hitler funded and backed up India's nationalist efforts against the Brits (for example by sheltering a leading Indian Nationalist Subhas Chandra Bose in Germany). So from their perspective he's probably not the worst guy around. Hitler, for the most part, didn't kill Asians, he didn't kill Africans, he mostly just killed European white guys, so a non-European probably doesn't give a shit about him. Unless they are made to care through exposure to Western movies and historical narratives.
"I don't hate blacks, I just think they should have their own place for themselves......"
Hitler is popular in pockets all over the world. I’ve seen in in Mexico and China. As is Stalin.
I think it’s hard for Americans to understand, because his face and that gif-length clip of him gesticulating in a speech are juxtaposed with shots of bulldozed bodies, in educational videos we are all subject to from a young age. Elsewhere, Hitler is more of “just another blood-soaked 20th-Century badass.”
And, to this day, 'Kaffir' remains the South African version of the 'n-word'.
Did Hitler use the street as a toilet? Could be that.
Whatever the answer is, it probably won't be a simple one. We are talking about a culture and a mindset that has room for 33 million gods. Hitler 'popularity' is (most likely) an exceedingly minor blip in that whole cosmic shebang.
Because Hitler idealized the Aryans, an Indo-European people who settled in northern India.
They divide themselves into castes with levels its no suprise they see others that way
No, there was nothing evil about the symbol itself
Yup, and the Dutch version is 'Kaffer'.
Remember when GSP wore the Japanese rising sun flag to the Octagon? Most people in the west think that flag is "cool". People in Asia see it like we see Hitler and swastikas. They saw GSP coming out to that like we would see someone coming out to the Octagon covered in swastikas. The Indians probably just think Hitler and swastikas look cool. Why would someone in India give a fuck about an atrocity that happened in Europe and was done by white people to white people?
Nah it's pretty simple. People in the west do the equivalent all the time; see my post above about GSP.
