    Neo-Nazi Clothing Label Case Doomed from the Start

    The Thor Steinar clothing label, popular among neo-Nazis, has all but lost its case against left-wing satirical label “Storch Heinar” after a Nuremberg judge warned late Wednesday that much of the complaint was unfounded.

    Thor Steinar’s manufacturer, Media Tex, vowed nonetheless to press on with its case, which is due to be settled August 11.
    The satirical version, featuring a stork with a silly Hitler-style moustache and haircut, is the work of the Social Democratic activist organisation Endstation Rechts, which aims to fight right-wing extremism in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

    Its shirts, which have sold well since being launched in 2008, also bear mocking anti-fascist slogans such as “Der Führer had only one egg,” a reference to a popular World War II-era song that poked fun at the Nazis. MediaTex, however, believes its brand is being damaged and its products ridiculed, and is therefore suing Endstation Rechts in Nuremberg.

    But as the hearing began, judge Horst Rottmann said there was not sufficient similarity between the stork and the Thor Steinar logo, which was therefore not being damaged. The same went for the names: “Stork” and “Thor” aroused completely different associations, Rottmann said.

    Rottmann also gave the Storch Heinar label latitude on artistic freedom grounds, pointing out that the intent of founder Mathias Brodkorb, an MP for the centre-left Social Democrats in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania was satire, not to make a profit.

    We need men who will ridicule the leftists right back.

    Thor Steinar was a magnificent brand. Now it's apparently owned by Arabs.

    Does anybody know who the real ownwer of Thor Steinar is?
    Is he really one of "us" or just making money, never "plowing" it back to where it is coming from.

    It certainly is a good business idea.

    It's owned by Arabs. Seems the founders were never part of "us".

    "Neo-Nazi Group Calls for Thor Steinar Boycott
    Neo-Nazis are nothing if not style conscious. Now, though, a far-right group has called for a boycott of German clothing label Thor Steinar, which is popular among rightists. Among other gripes, the group is concerned that its "complex worldview" cannot be represented on a T-shirt.

    When it comes to product loyalty, neo-Nazis, despite their professed anti-capitalism, have never been ones to disappoint."

    "Fashion-conscious neo-Nazis may be forced to reconsider their choice of outfit after a clothing brand closely associated with the German skinhead scene was acquired by an Arab investor.

    A Dubai-based businessman has purchased the Thor Steinar fashion label and appointed an Arab chief executive ."




    So Arabs are selling Norwegian sweaters to make money. They even named one of their stores after ABB.

    Yeah, the previous owners got tired of being shunned for being "Capitalists" by resentful loosers on the right. So they dropped it for a good price.

    We really got some masters of shooting in their own foot in our ranks.

    Anyway, it seems the label is still good enough to provoke "democrats".....

    Stone me but I think a good Norwegian sweater with traditional cutting and pure wool is far better and more practical than those contemporary fashionable rags. (Side by side the hyteria about TS in the BRD is absolute absurd, intolerant and undemocratic.)

    I knew it a bad idea to have the trial in nuremberg, the trials there never worked out to well for us.
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it´s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???
