I suppose it’s all just a coincidence that Arnold Schwarzenegger selected a belt buckle to wear—on the cover of a mass circulation news magazine—that features a human skull. Sure, Arnold’s dad was a Nazi and Arnold denies that he admired Hitler and liked to pretend to be an SS officer, despite eyewitness accounts to the contrary, and yeah, the skull and crossbones (Totenkopf) happened to be associated with the Schutzstaffel-Totenkopf, or SS Death’s Head units, the Nazis responsible for the operation of the Third Reich’s concentration camps…
But that’s all just got to be a coincidence.
Pick up a copy of the June 25, 2007 Time Magazine and check it out for yourself. (I actually had to get a friend of mine to verify this for me by looking at an actual copy of the magazine. There’s not enough resolution in the online image of the Time cover to be useful.
