nazi detergent

no, this detergent is not endorsed by the SS. it's China Top Brand, China's brand supervision and quality control. much like our own SPRING and formerly SISIR. but it certainly takes getting used to. In Beijing you can see the "SS" logo on buses, on advertisements and many products. In Shanghai, there was one whole walking street full of big signs with this logo. it seemed like the Nuremberg Rally! Others have been taking notice and are asking about why this lack of sensitivity.

I think it's more of a case of lack of awareness and coincidence more than anything else. even in Taiwan, there had been a nazi-style theme pub and TV ads selling something. There's even a group of postgrad students in Taiwan forming a National Socialism Association and claiming NGO status!!??
