Marketed as a future collectible on eBay, the Obama pin cushion is nearly identical in design and is compared to an Adolf Hitler pin cushion from the World War II era. It is interesting that an item featuring the image of President Obama mimics the design of and is equated with an item bearing the likeness of a man who promoted the idea of Aryan supremacy and who is revered by members of white supremacist organizations.
