    Default Latest Nutjob Theory - "Obama uses Nazi Symbols"

    The latest talking point on Obama is that the logo used to represent the Health Care reform effort is a throw back to a Nazi symbol. These guys are nuts.

    Damn you really need to search for conspiracies.

    I haven’t heard much about all this, and I keep up fairly well on national politics. Methinks its Obama’s people putting up all the fuss for the most obscure things and getting it out into the mainstream. I guess their tactic is that if it breathes and is not liberal, it must be racist. But it does help to deflect from Obama’s failings.

    The Health care logo is simply the use of the Caduceus, which is supposed to represent the staff/wand of Hermes and is widely used to represent the medical profession

    Also alot of American seals and symbols where designed to incorporate Freemasonic symbolism (in a wink and a nudge, aren't we the clever lads who know what that really means, tee hee hee kind of way I'd imagine) as many of the Founding Fathers were Masons. This could be the reason why people see these things. Misinterpration, though the symbols are in fact there.

    All of this is quite unsurprising if you consider the intellectual capacities of most of the people behind such campaigns.
    Clue: They are the same type of people who put these kind of things on their cars:

    Whatever about that, Obama's campaign rally at Invesco Field did have a strong touch of Nuremberg about it.
