EDIT!!!! For all the people trying to inform me that I drew a peace symbol for an illustration of hate. I shall now educate you.

1. yes the ORIGINAL symbol represented peace. It can be found over any number of buddhist temples and the such and looks like this. [link] Note...it is counterclockwise in its rotation...

2. I am very much aware hitler stole the symbol...but, he mirrored it as the nazi symbol. The mirrored version in this picture is the nazi symbol and rotates clockwise. Illustration: [link]

so please...please...do not assume I had no idea this symbol was stolen, and please realize they are mirrors of each other.

end edit



"Hate Is Contageous. Its a disease that poisons and corrupts the soul. Innocence lost, our children are listening"

Thats is whats written over and over in the background. I want to let you all know that this is in no way intended to be a racially offensive artwork but rather intended to make a statement of how our hatred and ideals are passed ont our children.

posted in political since there isnt a current events section...I personally think this category should be socio political and not just political

I drew this after seeing an interview on television with a band named Prussian blue. It consists of two twin girls, very young, very innocent looking, with a soft sweet sound to their music, until you listen to the lyrics. Brought up by a white supremecist mother and grandfather the girls were raised to believe blacks were not human...therefore dont have souls the same as them...which is where the phrase on the girl's scarf "he died for me, not you" came from.

Watching these girls broke my heart to realize that two girls that look innocent on the outside are so corrupted by their caretakers ideals...and it made me want to cry.

The characters in this image are both to a degree intended to be children, and siblings, the boy older and farther along in his path to corruption, but the girl vastly unaware of the degree of wrongness in her holding such a doll in her hands. Spatterred with blood textures in the background to show that only pain and negative results come from such opinions.

I forget who I got the blood brushes from so I pre apologize for not properly crediting you. I hope at least a few of you actually read the description. Thank you.

Except:

1) Even the National Socialists used this as a benevolent symbol.
Assuming that they saw themselves as the "bad guys" is absurd,
and is essentially the product of anti-German propaganda.

The Swastika is only one of the numerous instances of Solar Wheel
symbols associated with Indo-European (popularly called Aryan)
culture. It was presumably brought to India (Vedic) peoples by a
race called the Aria (noble), following the description of the ancient
Indian texts themselves. These peoples are described in the Rig Veda
as having "hair like fire", recalling the blond and red hair of white
peoples. There are countless numbers of ancestral European
migration waves that are know to have settled in places like Egypt,
the Middle-East, Near-East, Norther India, Pakistan, Iran, and
some even went to the Taklamakan desert. Instances of Sun Wheel
symbols throughout European history are countless, assuming that
Hitler stole anything, is beyond ridiculous, but is unfortunately a
dangerous lie that is taught in schools because of political correctness.
     9th century Viking runestone with a swastika, to Odinism and Asatru:
        upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
     Parun's (Slavic God) thunder symbol:
        upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
     Kolovrat (Slavic Sunwheel):
        upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
     Ancient Greek helmet with Swastika:
        upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
     Ancient Greek 6th century BCE coin:
        upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…

Basically everywhere Aryans (Indo-European tribes) went, they
brought this symbol with them. That is why today we can find
Swastikas in ancient Greek, Roman, Slavic, and Nordic, archeological
sites, as well as cultural remnants in many countries which they
colonized in ancient times as Iran, Egypt, Northern Indian, and
even China and Japan among others.

2) Also the Hindu Swastika and the German one are both oriented
in the same direction.
     Hindu:

     German:

One cannot blame the poor children and adolescents who are
being lied to in schools, but they should nonetheless make a
decent amount of research about the symbol before blindly
repeating what they are told, even if that implies basic reading
on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

As a side-note, people should also break another lie taught in
schools, namely that only blond blue-eyed peoples were
considered Aryan by the Third Reich's policies. See a map from
the Meyers Konversations-Lexikon Encyclopedia's map of
Aryan peoples
on a world map (used at the time of the Third Reich):

... considering the picture is supposed to be anti hate, but the characters themselves are supposed to portray said hate... I'd rather not have that message being worn about...

Amazing piece....
It's so sad what hates bringing us to now...I just visited the Holocaust meusuem last week...And it's just amazing that their could be so much hate in this world.
I just looked up the Prussian blue and I was disgusted...The first picture that comes when you look them up is them wearing shirts with a Hitler smiley face on it....It's just sick...

I like how the brother character is resting his hand on her shoulder as if he is saying its okay to be this way and their right. The warm red tones are eye catching because they normally make you think of rage and hate which fits this image perfectly. In general I adore the character designs and the colouring is brilliant. I really think this is a clearly thought out piece of art and I liked the artist comments that went with it. If I was going to Critique something, it would be that maybe a less static pose might make the image more appealing, but I don’t think it really matters in the end. :love:

when i saw the pic i was like "aww, cute." thn when i read your description on it, ii was like ". . . wtf??.. thats horrible." all in all i still lik the picture an you gave it a good concept for it's making. and that is horrible to ever mold anyones mind into thinking such things such as that! All humans are created equaly no matter race, gender, disabilty, or mutations.
(sorry for errors in spelling.)

I needed this right now. I was looking for Nazi Chibis, just 'cause I saw a Chibi of the Nazi from "The Producers" once and I was looking for it again. I came upon a few Chibis. And then I found an entire subculture of Fake Neo-Nazis on here who either don't know that the fascists would probably consider them filth behind their backs or send them to camps for some reason or other. But what really hit me was when I saw that these were kids. a 17, 14, 16, I almost cried when I saw a girl who had painted a swastika on her stomach. Hate is a terrible thing...
