Nazis in America are holding torch rallies, killing protesters, and hanging out with other losers of U.S. wars this week, begging the question: What is the appropriate way for a patriotic American to display the unmistakable, swastika-bearing flag of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich?


Fortunately, the United States armed forces — safeguards of so many American customs, traditions, and courtesies — have a longstanding tradition on how to display the Nazi flag, too. Here are 14 examples to guide you. Why 14? Because that's as high as American Nazis can count.

Nothing brings Americans together like hating Nazis. Those guys suck hard.

What's badass? Taking a victory photo in weather that's as cold as your feelings for Hitlerism.
