Cool response, bro. His point, as I understand it, is that neither you, nor Okoi Jones, get to decide what the swastika means to other people. I get that your point is, provided the context, we should not be offended. And honestly, Im not really (cant speak for blochead). But the reality is, is that most people who see his tattoos are not going to know the context. I know that the few times that I have had the misfortune of encountering someone with a swastika tattoo it has made me feel weird, and bad, and vaguely afraid for my physical safety (im ethnically Jewish, although I dont practice), and I dont feel like it is a huge stretch to say that most Jews would feel this way. Now, is making a (large) group of people uncomfortable a crime? obviously not. Are individuals under any (legal) obligation to care how certain symbols might effect people? No. But its still a dick move.
