ADL Labels Celtic Cross a Hate Symbol

Time to start knocking over gravestones, Ireland...

...a beacon of justice and morality just called you out.
…a beacon of justice and morality just called you out.
The ADL is the moral compass of the universe, America. If they say you are evil, than you are evil. You’d best start burning all the churches and knocking over all the graves that contain this racist symbol, and quick.
Because you don’t want to be called a racist, do you?
The US Anti-Defamation League has named the Celtic Cross as one of the racist symbols used around the world to promote hate in their online Hate Symbols Database.
The ADL believes that white supremacist versions of the Celtic Cross, otherwise known as Odin’s Cross, Sun Cross, or Wheel Cross, have become some of the most important and widely used symbols of white supremacists. The cross consists of a square cross interlocking with or surrounded by a circle.
According to the League’s database, a version of the Celtic Cross was used by Norwegian Nazis during the 1930s and 40s and a variety of white supremacist groups and movements took it as their own symbol of hate following World War II.
They currently class the cross as a symbol used by neo-Nazis, racist skinheads, Ku Klux Klan members and many other forms of white supremacists. The Celtic Cross is also used as part of the logo of Stormfront, the oldest and largest white supremacist website in the world.
