First of all the nazi swastika was, as I have always understood, backwards to the previous historical one, so in a technically correct sense, you aren't "misreading a symbol"

And the difference between something that has come to only represent one of the most hateful acts in human history, and something that is commonly known by it's proper definition as much or more than it is known by it's recent slang usage, is in no way insignificant.

To suggest they're analogous is a straw-man if ever there was one.
