Maybe if 6 million Canadians, our friends and families, had been rounded up and murdered back then we would be a lot more touchy about these things as well.

Stop trying to find logic or rationale in an illogical, irrational place.

re: 'They should know better'

They should. I'm not saying they can't name it what they want, but it's like Evander Kane and the Vegas shot and the head shaving. It's not explicitly that you cannot, or should not, ever do those things. It's that any reasonable person has to know that there will be a backlash. At minimum, one person had to say 'SS? You mean, like the Nazi's? Do we want to be associated with that?' in a meeting, and that should have been enough for them to rename it, like, anything else. I don't care, I don't know what it was supposed to stand for, but get a thesaurus and replace one of the s's with a synonym and just save yourself the hassle. That's basic stuff.

Israel is always complaining about something and getting themselves into messes...it's been 74 freaking years since the holocaust occurred...people in this society are WAY too sensitive about everything and they're teaching their progeny to be just as sensitive...soft, fruity kids who have no backbone of their own...just like their parents. SS is an abbreviation for:

Given that the SS was a central player in Implementing the "Final Solution", such distaste of the "SS" abbreviation is quite understandable - it is pretty much a cultural imperative for Jews and Israel.

Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out - because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me

The Holocaust is seared on the consciousness of Jews and others.

There is a reason why certain Nazi symbols and images are still prohibited in a number of European countries and in some of those countries Holocaust denial is a crime.

I understand better than most as I lost relatives in the Nazi death camps.

Remember earlier when I said: I'd hate to think how many things have "double S" initials?

Guessing Solid State drives don't sell well in Isreal either...they'er going to fall behind the technological curve. Can you just imagine what would happen if Scott Stevens booked a trip to bringing with him a laptop with a solid state drive, his favourite stainless steel, coffee to go mug, working on a spreadsheet, enjoying lunch with some sea salt.....

I sympathize with that. I really do...but the Nazis didnt INVENT the SS abbreviation nor do they have exclusive rights to it, so it's kind of silly to infer that every time the letters SS appear together that it has something to do with Nazis. That's just common sense.

Yup as i have noted in the past quoting Lutheran Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) - for his opposition to the Nazis' state control of the churches, Niemöller was imprisoned in Sachsenhausen and Dachau concentration camps from 1937 to 1945.

The difference in this case is that the particular Chevrolet model in this edition is being marketed with the initials "SS" .

Yes, which stands for "Super Sport". Which has what exactly to do with Nazis?

Other than the visceral reaction, little but as the article notes in the past the marketing has been using Super Sport and not the initials. The initials have very negative cultural connotation for Israelis.
