What someone said about swastikas, definitely. It is a sacred symbol in both Hinduism and Shinto, was used by various Indigenous tribes, the ancient Romans, etc. And every now and then if you walk by am old building there's a swastika...there are a few in NYC. Of course that symbol now has another connotation of hatred and death, so it is prudent not to use it now, and if it shows up in Europe or the USA people understandably associate it with Nazis only, and don't want it around. It is a symbol that has been permanently taken out of commission, IMHO. You will see it all over the place in Japan, India, etc though.
Indeed, there is a house in my neighborhood with a brick swastika on the chimney. Built well before WW2.
Before it went down for refurbishment/covered with tarps for Club 33 work, the former voodoo balcony had all the props removed basically, which I was sad to see. Hope they come back.
What?! No! That bites. I agree with you, I really hope they bring it back. Or that they have the Voodoo Priestess who lived in that house (I was told that was the backstory?) relocate to another apartment in New Orleans Square and decorate her new balcony similarly...
Also, the Nazis didn't "flip" the symbol - they always used the right facing one, but so did a lot of others. The Buddhist swastika always faces left, but the Hindu one and the ancient Roman ones can go right OR left. And the right facing swastika - the one the Nazis used - shows up in good luck pins, logos and all over the place in pop culture, pre-WWII buildings, and Indigenous designs. Here's an example of an old Navajo rug which uses both orientations. http://www.mattkuhncollection.com/grnadoswastika.jpg
And as a contemporary symbol of hatred that stands, too.
So, are you all too irrational to see that it's a makers mark on the jug? It's in blue ink that is stamped on all the jugs from that manufacturer. It's under the glaze. Why do you insist on making up ridiculous explanations and blaming cast members for devil worshipping? It probably was placed carefully by an imagineer not to face the guests line of sight originally, but in the 25 years the ride has been opened, it's gotten rotated. Once again, this group is making something of nothing.
If you take a second and do your homework before going and accusing the cast members of being satanic devil worshipers... you would have found that the jug is an antique almost 100 years old. Here is the story:
Star Stoneware...the company was in business in Crooksville, Ohio, from 1892-1945. The jug design is called a beehive top...easy to see. Many of the jugs are funnel style.
