My 8 year only son just pointed to my Frontbase and asked what was the Nazi symbol on it for?
I explained it was a fan and he insisted it wasnt.
People see symbols in so many things. So, is there a conspiracy by ROG to rule the world?

cdcbr3 .. Welcome to ROG ..

The fan is a fan for the fan, absolutely positively Nothing to do with the atrocity of the other symbol whatsowhoever.
Asus and ROG strive diligently to be an all inclusive global force in every corner of the world.
The only thing anti anything @ ROG is spammers, flamers and also-ran less than state of the technical arts equipment.

And yes, ROG fully intends to rule the world. imho. Have you been to the hwbot record board ??? hahahhahaa .c.

It's 100% a fan symbol. The fan blades aren't attached to the center circle, whereas the swastika is very specific. The similarity lies on the 45 degree angle only.

For other reference there's also a difference between the Buddist and Nazi Germany versions: https://www.flickr.com/photos/49337086@N07/4525274963/

As Carl G Jung said, sometimes a pencil is just a pencil.

Freud would have had a field day with this sentence! ;)

Political Correctness or Cultural Marxism, however you want to call it; is, ironically, just the sort of thing the nazi symbol stands for so actually you can't get more PC than that.

I quite like the Hindu swastika myself. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

Yeah this symbol has been around for centuries, I guess it is possible to pervert or subvert any symbol if you put your mind to it.
