I'm Not Too Fond of Nazis

Watching the movie Valkyrie (which was excellent), I couldn't help but be made physically uncomfortable by the extensive Nazi regalia. Even in that context, a Swastika is a revolting thing and I find it hard not to flinch. Odd that it would be so deeply ingrained. A while back I was at a party and some dude showed up (who many people there knew and were friendly with) who had a Swastika tattoo on his wrist. I don't know the story of this, but there were several of us who just didn't know how to deal with this, how to process such a thing in that context.
