Cute Hitler and Swastika-Inspired Cartoons

Since when has displaying the Nazi-subverted swastika and the likeness of a deranged mass murderer become a trend? 

It’s very hard to believe, but there are some stores in Tokyo that specialize in making and selling Nazi-inspired cute little cartoons and even Harajuku girls with swastikas splashed all over the place. 

Trend de la Creme notes, "Now, sugary-sweet Nazi creations are popping up which has me wondering if the holocaust is still taught in public schools? Because, with just a small bit of research, these kids would know something else about the Nazis: They murdered millions of Jews, Gypsies, Czechs, Poles, Catholics, the mentally and physically handicapped, homosexuals and others not belonging to the ‘great race...’"

What I find most galling about this Hitler mania is that these cute, innocent-looking cartoons are targeted at impressionable children who know nothing about history or the Holocaust.

I find the whole thing nauseating. Stats for Shocking Kids' Shows Trending: Older & Average
