Because online interactions aren't rated by the ESRB. That's why people can say/do whatever they want to over online games, short of things that would actually break the law, like making terroristic threats, or pushing/urging someone to physically harm themselves.
But other than that - a Swastika isn't illegal and falls under the "not rated" portion of the game. I mean, hell, people have genitals as emblems.

Because they want to trigger you. I whole-heartedly agree that holocaust jokes and racism are not funny, but there are a surprising number of people who do, and use things such as swastikas as their emblems to upset people.
Thing is, the swastika wasn't originally a **** symbol anyway, it originally was actually a symbol of luck, or something of that nature.

People want attention. If it means using an offensive symbol, they'll do so.

Swastikas remind people of the horrors of the Na-zis (it's censored?). However, the Holocaust industry does take advantage of this (See Norman Finkelstein's book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48836.The_Holocaust_Industry). It's as simple as that. Zionists have an agenda and they use the suffering of the Holocaust as a tool to further their agenda. You're not worried in the same way about someone running the emblem of the Communist party of the Soviet Union because there's no one there with an agenda to scare you of the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was far worse than the na-zi party. Far worse. But there's no one there to gain anything from that part of history so you don't hear anything about it. The moral of the story op is read a book and do some research before you start a thread because some people can see how ignorant of history a person is just from reading one of their sentences.
This is the only thing I'll say and I know no politics here but these thread come up every little while and I've been wanting to say something for a while.
