Oh, she’s dead serious.
Step aside, Taylor Swift.
Step aside, Lorde.
The new official pop singer of the neon-Nazi alt-right movement is Shakira.
Uh, she is White, right?
Meh, close enough. Whatever. Chainmail bikini is White AF tho.
Anyway, promoting her show with a straight-up Nazi symbol is pretty gutsy of her, and deserves our support.
Naturally, the filthy J-leftists had the gall to whine about it and ruin everyone’s fun.
Shakira fans were shaking their heads after spotting what appeared to be a Nazi-like symbol on a necklace for sale on the singer’s fan website. The $9.99 gold pendant necklace was meant to promote the star’s “El Dorado World Tour,” which kicked off in early June.
German news site Bento was among the first media outlets to point out the offensive souvenir, saying it was inscribed with the “Black Sun,” a symbol designed by Nazis.
Yes, the Black Sun is a Nazi symbol. It was basically invented by German occultist Guido Von List, who was influential with some parts of the Nazi party (notably, Himmler).
After the war, it became a symbol associated with Neo-Nazism exclusively.
“The symbol conceals three crossed swastikas – or twelve sieves arranged in a circle,” the news outlet reported.
Angry fans soon began to post side-by-side shots of the “Black Sun” symbol and the one displayed on Shakira’s merchandise.
“So Shakira most likely accidentally put a nazi symbol on her tour merch and didn’t know it,” one Twitter user posted.

“A fascist symbol as a necklace for your world tour? Are you f—ing serious?” another asked.
Live Nation, Shakira’s concert producer, took responsibility for the blunder in an apology note posted online Thursday.
“The necklace Live Nation designed for Shakira’s El Dorado World Tour was based on Pre-Columbian imagery,” the group tweeted. “However, some fans have expressed concern that the design bears an unintentional resemblance to Neo-Nazi imagery. We sincerely apologize for this inadvertent similarity and have permanently pulled the item from the tour collection.”
This is complete bullshit.
While there may have been “pre-Columbian” imagery which looked vaguely like the Black Sun, her pendant is an exact replica of the Nazi version.
Here’s some similar ancient symbols:
These are just generic sun symbols. They have apparently random numbers of spokes on the wheel.
Now, here’s a Black sun inlaid in the floor of Himmler’s Wewelsburg castle:
12 spokes, perfect symmetry, joining in the center. This is exactly the same design as on Shakira’s design:
Moreover, “El Dorado” means “the Golden One.” And we all know who that is.
Latsbrah is no doubt Shakira’s latest crush.
Even our friends at the ADL got in on this action.
Well, this is certainly problematic. For more information on the Sonnenrad, see our hate symbols database at https://t.co/9PpjjWdvFh.

Thanks for the info, Shlomo.
Unfortunately, the necklace has now been removed from her website, which is tragic, as it means I can never have one.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
