Seeking honest opinions: is this design I made offensive? [View all]

I made this design last night based on inspiration from the nickname someone adopted on Twitter. When I went to post it on Zazzle it flagged it for content review, and I was just notified that it was rejected because apparently they don't allow any references to the word "Nazi", regardless of context. This was not at all clear from their content guidelines.

As of now it is still for sale on CafePress and Redbubble, but I am wondering if it is over the top and I should take it down. I am pretty sure everything in my stores would offend deplorables, but if this offends other people who share my views I want to remove it. I am curious what other DU'ers think. FWIW, I don't throw the word "Nazi" around lightly.

If you find it offensive I am curious why if you have a moment to share.
