So some guy who calls himself Darwin Rockantansky has written a post at Tea Party Nation about how the Obama campaign logo hides a much more sinister meaning. First, let him explain his credentials:
My wife has always told me that I have a creative mind (she may be biased) and “Finding Elmo” was always about a thirty second exercise for me. But somehow, looking at this symbol of oppression I cannot see either a rising sun nor do I see a horizon.
The blogger notices that the top of the "O" in the logo "does not resemble a rainbow as much as it resembles the muzzle of a large caliber firearm." But then he sees a bunch of good things: a plowed field; a well-traveled road; the "testament to the blood, sweat and tears sacrificed in the American journey to defend freedom around the world;" and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So what's wrong with those things? Turns out, nothing. It's the meaning behind the symbol that's so eeeeevil:
...as the National Socialists in Germany perverted what was historically a symbol meaning “this is good” into a symbol that will forever connote evil so the meaning of what the supporters of this regime would have us believe as their symbol of “..a sense of new hope” is in all actuality the symbol for heralding the extermination of the American Dream for all the world to see; the American Swastika.
