Oh look, yet another attention seeking narcissist.

Yeah, because he really was honoring Tibetan symbolism.

A massive swastika is in one homeowner's front yard and his neighbors don't like it.

"I own this house I'll put what I want. It ain't none of your guys' business."

Steve Johnson owns the home on Lindell Drive, in El Sobrante, where a newly made swastika symbol is now embedded in his front yard.

First Amendment aside, some symbols have been so corrupted that displaying might not be such a good idea! Now, a statue of punching a Nazi wearing a swastika can help lessen the offensiveness.

Clearly, he's trying to provoke a reaction from someone.

I sure wouldn't like looking at it either, but he's got the right to do it. I'm trying to think of something creative to counter his swastika that would make him look foolish, but coming up short.

For instance, the gay people who bought the house across the street from the Phelps compound, painted it like a rainbow, and established an anti-bullying campaign there.

He's seeking attention, and he's getting it.

The Nazis culturally appropriated the swastika.

His yard, I don't care.

His next symbol should be a Finger flipping the bird.

Ho hum. Ignore him. I'll be concerned when a Statue, Flag, Symbol, or Verbal Statement can actually hurt me. Until then, I will ignore them.
