Are Silver Star Casting Company Nazi Sympathizers?

A little over a year ago the MMA community was rocked by scandal.  A clothing company by the name of Hoelzer Reich had infiltrated the fighter sponsorship landscape.  Much of their apparel blatantly featured imagery synonymous with the Nazi regime including the Totenkopf Death's Head skull, the Iron Cross and a logo using their intials "HR" that bared striking resemblance to a Swastika.  

After public outrage from popular sites like MMA.tv, BloodyElbow.com, Yahoo! Sports' CageWriter and more, UFC, WEC and Strikeforce all eventually banned the brand from sponsoring fighters.

It appears now that a lesson was not learned by other clothing companies of what is, and what isn't acceptable to print onto their clothing.

 

In the above video recently uploaded by FIGHT! Magazine's YouTube channel, relentless UFC fighter Clay "The Carpenter" Guida is seen wearing a Silver Star Casting Company shirt that features the Totenkopf Death's Head skull as well as several bomber planes below it. Although the Totenkopf was not originally from Adolf Hitler's Nazi era, it cannot be denied that this symbol was not donned by thousands of Nazi soldiers as featured in the picture below.

Although the shirt that Guida is wearing in this video no longer appears to be available on Silver Star's online store, they are still selling several items including a shirt and two hats that bare the Totenkopf.  Should Silver Star Casting Company remove these items from their website?
