Not sure that would get over with the American people.
Before you go on spreading a bunch of half-truths about one of the worst regimes in history and making some asinine comments on the Trayvon Martin case, you should maybe log off and read a book. Several, in fact. Go, you've got work to do. /rant
Almost every German wrestler who has a modicum of success in America gets a gimmick at some point that plays with Nazi imagery and equally tiresome stereotypes about Germans (Militarism, efficiency, delusions of superiority, pseudo-Nietzschean babble, etc.). Just look at what they did to Alex Wight when they gave him the atrocious "Berlyn" gimmick back in the day. (And yet, British fans think they have it bad...)
Needless to say, I don't enjoy it at all. Maybe I'm not edgy enough, maybe it's because of my Jewish background, but using the Nazis as a prop to provide some cheap entertainment is just crossing the line for me. It's not enlightening, it's not entertaining, it's just dumb. Having Swagger and Coulter spout their bigoted anti-immigrant rhetoric is fine, but it shouldn't go that far.
