This is a normal post Well that would depend entirely on the relevance.
Is it a Hitler museum?

I think we can all agree that the reason these statues are usually erected is that the historical figure being depicted has both local relevance and has left a lasting positive legacy on the local area. I don't really know where poor Adolf would meet those criteria outside a war museum.

I'm by no means an advocate of Churchill. If anything, I think these days he mostly serves as an icon for the tabloid reading nationalist gammon scum. But should he be commemorated? Abso-fucking-lutely.

Nah, I mean like... in your regular workplace.
For example.
If they had swastikas on the walls.

This is a normal post What would my workplace be commemorating through the medium of Nazi imagery?

This is a normal post Buddhism?
I knew a (white, European) guy who had a bunch of Buddhist swastikas tattooed about his person. He didn't loved to tell people that there wasn't any problem with that, and delighted in correcting people who thought he was a Nazi.
Bit of cock really.

This is a normal post I'm pretty sure he was a nazi,
and you're the only person who swallowed the Buddhism story.

This is a normal post There's quite a difference between a religious swastika and a Nazi one

This is a normal post True. But the differences are entirely contextual.
I've met individuals like the chap you mentioned. In my experience, they're neither far-right nationalists nor followers of Buddhism/Hinduism/etc.
More often than not, they're the slightly unhinged types teetering on the edge of full-blown mental illness who enjoy the attention they receive from being provocative and/or non-conformist. The types of folk usually dealing with some kind of unresolved childhood trauma who would rather end up on the streets with a roaring smack addiction than even consider appearing vulnerable by asking for help.
Nonetheless, if that's the case, then the swastika's purpose is to cause controversy/offense and therefore is a 'bad' swastika - in my opinion.
