If people TAKE it as one then that's their problem, not mine. I'm a born-and-bred Yankee Brooklynite so I have no issues about the flag BUT I know this whole thing is much ado about nothing to satisfy the P.C. crowd.
I had some Adolfs in my family. They're all dead now and were born way before Hitler came to power but if I wanted to name my kid Adolf then that's my right and there should be NO backlash at all just because some nut in the 1930's rose to power with the same name. It's a Germanic name, that's all it is. And for anyone who has that name or who names someone Adolf in this day and age should not be scrutinized at all because it is wrong to do so. Period. Same for Atilla, Lucifer, Osama etc.... Political Correctness is all about tolerance so what's good for the goose.......
