Why Does Today's Popular Culture Embrace "Symbols of Evil"?

They claim that they are just exercising their right of freedom of expression. But do you see what they are expressing? Usually its something negative or blasphemous. The "scull and crossbones" is the most popular symbol, that symbol represents death or poison. Other popular symbols are devils, fire, serpents, weapons, and chains. The "iron cross" is probably the second most popular symbol and it was used by the Nazis during the second world war. Many try to imitate inner-city gangsters or "pimps", who are notorious for violence, drug abuse and abuse of women

These are mostly symbols of hate, and the lyrics in much of today's music is hateful and intolerant. Yet when I object to these type of symbols, attitude, or music, or foul language, I am the one who is said to be intolerant.
