Trump Campaign Eagle Is Not Nazi Symbol

The 2020 Trump Campaign has been accused of using a Nazi symbol because there is an eagle on a t-shirt on the campaign website. Yes, the eagle, that stunningly beautiful bird of prey that has been the national bird since 1782. The featured image above this post is the sculpture on the South Portico of the Indiana State House. Who knew that Indiana was such a hot bed of Nazis?

You think I am kidding? Please. Those affected by Trump Derangement Syndrome will see anything that Donald Trump does as EVIL. New York Times best selling author Kurt Eichenwald saw the Nazi connection:

General Michael Hayden saw it, also:

Gen. Michael Hayden, the former director of the NSA and the CIA, expressed his astonishment on Twitter with a pair of four-letter words.

“Holy sh–,” he wrote, in a retweet that’s racked up more than 26,000 likes.

Others suggested that the design was an attempt to troll Trump’s left-leaning critics — something the campaign has done several times in the past by altering slogans such as “defund the police” or “Black Lives Matter.”

Jewish Action saw it:

The Nazi Iron Eagle symbol is done in Art Deco style. The Trump Campaign eagle has her wings raised in pride. I mean, it’s an eagle. You have to work really hard to turn an American icon into a Nazi symbol. Bias confirmation, much. If you didn’t read Narcissi’s June 23 post, “Ignorant Americans – the Viral Threat”, please read it now. Especially the part on iconography.

The bald eagle, as the symbol of the United States, is on our coins and bills, above buildings like the Indiana State House, and official documents. The United States Marines prize the Eagle, Globe and Anchor they receive upon completion of training. Our top Boy Scouts make it to Eagle Scout.

Of course, accusing Trump and Trump voters of being Nazi racists is par for the course. Earlier this week, Senator Tim Scott jumped on the bandwagon saying a Trump retweet with some grumpy old Villager yelling “white power” was “terrible”. Let’s look at the video:

I am not excusing the old grump. I just want us to look at the whole picture. The one man, screen right, is yelling “racist, racist” over and over again. He also asks old grump, “Where is your white hood?” Maybe old grump was just pissed and isn’t really into white power. People see and hear what they want to hear. Bias confirmation again. Trump voters are tired of the Nazi comparison, but it’s all the Left has.

I am going to let this go now, Just one more thing. Have you seen the eagle symbol for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House? The House of Representatives even has a giant mace with an Eagle on top.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is serious. Only the Trump Campaign eagle is a Nazi eagle.

    Libera Logic – the US Flag is offensive Red is the color of a gang. Blue is another color of a gang.
    Solution: American flag changed to White the color of surrender — oops , that is the color of a gang – White Power?

    You know, there really aren’t all that many ways to depict an eagle as a symbol with its wings displayed (the way heralds describe a bird’s pose with its wings spread out); all such symbols will bear at least a passing resemblance to each other. The point about the Nazi eagle being predominantly Art Deco style is well made, and even in instances when it was not Art Deco it almost always had the stiffness that so much of Nazi art had. The eagle on the t-shirt lacks that stiffness. And if they say that ANY use of an eagle smacks of the Nazis (and I am sure they will), the Great Seal of the United States has featured an eagle since a century before Adolf Hitler was born. We had it first.

    Do the idiots know where the NAZIs got their eagle symbol from? Any guesses?
    ROME
    Even America didn’t “have it first” as John C. says. It was a symbol for governments going back to even before Rome, I’m pretty certain. (Yep, the Achaemenid Empire, at least.)

    Kurt Eichenwald
    Maybe a guy with that surname shouldn’t be trying to cancel a universal symbol because it might maybe look German.

    You people are grasping. And it shows to those of us with half a brain.

    And don’t search for FDR’s National Recovery Administration. Yet another eagle with spread wings. Do these people actually believe their nonsense or are they just throwing stuff against the wall to see if it sticks.

    Here’s a hint, none of it sticks.
