Sauwastika

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sauwastika

The term sauwastika (or sauvastika[1][2]) (as a character: 卍) is sometimes used to distinguish the left-facing from the right-facing swastika symbol, a meaning which developed in 19th century scholarship.[3]

The left-facing variant is favoured in Bön and Gurung Dharma; it is called yungdrung in Bon and Gurung Yantra in Gurung Dharma. Both the right-facing and left-facing variants are employed in Hinduism and Buddhism; however, the left-facing is more commonly used in Buddhism than Hinduism and the right-facing is more commonly used in Hinduism than Buddhism.[4]

In Buddhism the left-facing sauwastika imprinted on the chest, feet, palms of Buddha and also the first of the 65 auspicious symbols on the footprint of the Buddha.[5][6] In Hinduism the left-facing sauwastika is associated with esoteric tantric practices and often stands for Goddess Kali


The right facing diagonal swastika is the offensive one.

NASA aborts SpaceX rocket launch after last-minute technical trouble

Hint, it wasn't NASA!

Miss leading headline for sure but, the first sentence of article explains what happened.
SpaceX scrubbed a rocket launch Saturday from NASA’s historic moon pad in Florida just 13 seconds from liftoff.

Great click bait or, is this click bait of the click bait?

Semantics

Semantics is the study of meaning. It focuses on the relationship between signifiers—like words, phrases, signs, and symbols—and what they stand for, their denotation. Linguistic semantics is the study of meaning that is used for understanding human expression through language. Other forms of semantics include the semantics of programming languages, formal logics, and semiotics.

THIS is my point. All 'media' does this. All are biased and untrustworthy.

Yes, and your point is seemingly not founded on an understanding of how journalism works (or how to distinguish between good journalism and "fake news"), and is thus "fake". Congrats.


I know how journalism worked. You are confused in thinking that journalism still exists. It does not.

Today we have these forms?

Advocacy journalism – writing to advocate particular viewpoints or influence the opinions of the audience.
Broadcast journalism – written or spoken journalism for radio or television.
Citizen journalism -- participatory journalism.
Data journalism -- the practice of finding stories in numbers, and using numbers to tell stories. Data journalists may use data to support their reporting. They may also report about uses and misuses of data. The US news organization ProPublica is known as a pioneer of data journalism.
Drone journalism – use of drones to capture journalistic footage.[9]
Gonzo journalism – first championed by Hunter S. Thompson, gonzo journalism is a "highly personal style of reporting".[10]
Interactive journalism: a type of online journalism that is presented on the web
Investigative journalism: in-depth reporting that uncovers social problems. Often leads to major social problems being resolved.
Photojournalism: the practice of telling true stories through images
Sensor journalism: the use of sensors to support journalistic inquiry.
Tabloid journalism – writing that is light-hearted and entertaining. Considered less legitimate than mainstream journalism.
Yellow journalism (or sensationalism) – writing which emphasizes exaggerated claims or rumors.

What a mess...

Over here that is known as freedom [to impose] religion.

As one looking for freedom from religion it does appear that way now.

Did you see what I did there. I agreed with you.

Only a libtard would call a warning against a security risk a "complaint". Limbaugh was right, liberals redefine words!

Tell me, why is the country where most of the 9/11 killers came from, not on the list of banned countries?

Short answer: Because the 9/11 killers were financed by rich extremist that live in that country and not by the government of that country.

Are you saying that the rulers of that country are not rich extremists.

yes
