Taylor Swift Embraces the Swastika

10/29/2009 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Swift's rep just put together this swift explanation for TMZ, "Taylor took pictures with about 100 people that night ... she doesn't know who this guy is and she didn't realize what was on his shirt."

What the heil was Taylor Swift thinking?

Taylor Swift Embraces the Swastika

During Katy Perry's birthday party in West Hollywood last weekend, 19-year-old Swift put her arm around a guy wearing a Nazi swastika -- a symbol of hate, murder and evil -- and smiled for a photograph.

There are rumblings that the "JH" on Swift's shirt stands for "Jew Hater" -- but it seems more likely it stands for Julianne Hough due to the fact that Hough had a "TS" painted on her outfit ... most likely for Taylor Swift.

Perhaps, if alot of you defenders defend the Swastika as a symbol of peace, unity, etc., and that it's no big deal, then try getting a shirt like that yourselves, and proudly wear that "peace and unity" symbol for all to see. Come on! Do it and quit wasting time preaching to "haters making a big deal" out of this if YOU YOURSELVES DON'T THINK IT IS A BIG DEAL! Go ahead, and buy or make the shirt with your beloved symbol and wear it outside!! Instead of thinking that we "have no lives, and living in the past, are picking on poor Taylor Swift, are idiots with missing chromosomes, etc..."

If we have no lives or chromosomes, then what exactly do you defenders do?? Look for any hate on Taylor Swift like TMZ.com (which you claim to hate so much) FOR THE SOUL PURPOSE OF FUELING YOUR PREACHINGS AND LECTURES ABOUT HOW WE ARE BEING MEAN TO MISS SWIFT?? More websites that hate on Miss Swift, so YOU YOURSELVES CAN FIND ENOUGH TIME TO DEFEND HER AND SAY THAT WE HAVE NO LIVES?? IS THAT YOUR PURPOSE ON USING THE INTERNET?? IF THERE ARE MORE THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT, THEN GET TO THOSE THINGS AND QUIT WORRYING ABOUT PEOPLE PICKING ON YOUR PRECIOUS TAYLOR! TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE, MORONS!!

As for Anton, a flaming swastika tattoo?? Is it flaming like a swastika symbol designed on you being burned like burning crosses on a black person's lawn? Or is the "flaming" some kind of figurative speech meaning a kick-ass tattoo??

Tsk, tsk! People will come up with any excuses to defend the swastika and this picture. Accusing haters of having no lives, yet what do they do, sit with their 6th helpings of McD's looking for any posts or articles hating on Miss Swift to fuel their lectures and preachings and telling us that we make a big deal out of nothing and that there are more things to worry about. Hypocrisy at its finest!

Once again the ignorance towards a symbol which is 10,000 years old is of no surprise (That's 8 centuries older than Jesus Christ people). North Americans are special that way. Bravo to this young man trying to restore thousands of years of peace ripped apart by a few years of Nazi hate. If this symbol represents "hate and murder" then congratulations for choking down Nazi propaganda with ease. Reject the Hate of people and not the ancient symbol.

although she had a picture taken with a fan who had a swastika on his shirt this does not reflect her semitic views. Also the guy might be hindu or have Indian ancestry because the swastika was originally a hindu religious symbol before Hitler stole it from them.

I don't know why this sweet girl gets so much hate. She's the type who's idealistic, thinks the very best about people and has her head in the clouds. No way did she even notice what this character was wearing or think about what it meant.

Nazi swastika -- a symbol of hate, murder and evil??? It was the symbol for life in hindu and asian cultures before the nazi's adopted it and zionists exploited it.

Ummm, actually she IS educated, why'd ya think she writes all her songs, and wanted to be a poet. That obviously means she's good at literature, which can get you far in life?
