Court Painter innocently glancing at a CBC website page Monday morning spotted an advertisement directing the viewer to what appears to be Neo Nazi garb for sale on WAYRATES.
The Iron Cross and Iron Eagle ,two obvious symbols from the WW2 Nazi era are prominent on the shirt and pants in addition to striped colour bands of black ,white and red; Nazi colours.One can assume the manufactured dirt staining on the garb is meant to appeal to the rough and tumble white supremacist buyers.
Raises question of how does a WAYRATES advertisement selling Neo Nazi garb appear on a public broadcasting website page?
The Iron Eagle, former symbol of Hitler’s Third Reich, is commonly used by neo-Nazi groups today to represent power and strength to the movement. The Iron Eagle is a patch typically earned by committing an act of violence. As modern German law prohibits the production of items containing Nazi insignia, the West German government authorized replacement Iron Crosses in 1957 with a trifoliate Oak Leaf Cluster in place of the swastika.
