You’d think neo-Nazi, KKK thugs would learn how to draw their symbol.

But outing these hate crimes as liberal, leftist hoaxes doesn’t fit the narrative. The Southern Poverty Law Center makes millions off of this stuff.

In eighth grade I learned how to properly draw a swastika. One day Mr. Howard, who taught history and coached football, gave us a surprise pop quiz.

“Take out a piece of paper. I want everyone to draw a swastika. Don’t overthink it. Just draw a swastika.”

So I did. No problem. Easy A.

Except I got it wrong. I drew it backwards, like this, 卍. The Nazi swastika, however, looks like this, 卐. Once everyone was done, Mr. Howard took a piece of chalk and drew a large one on the blackboard. And, so I learned something that day.

It reminds me of another time when the journalism advisor at college had us write Volkswagen. I wrote it Volkswagon. But it ends in a -en, not -on.
