American Flag DIY

When’s the next flag-waving fest? Will it be the anniversary of 9/11? We missed July 4th, but maybe the next tea party will do. How about a concession booth where we sell modified little American flags, or upgrade theirs for free? A magic marker or black paint will do. The Stars and Stripes already say I’m an American asshole patriot, but maybe it takes a swastika to see how our invader-take-all, my-drone-can-kick-your-ass nationalism sells overseas.

    haha Eric, as much as I admire our flag, that does seem to be the attitude of our tea party, you’re right. Here is the attitude, if you fight for social justice then you are unpatriotic, you and I both know that’s crap, but according to the rednecks that is gospel.

    Yeah, it’s kind of oversimplified, just the way they like it. (they’d have to read between the lines on the flag, something they’re really not good at)
    But the chant is: Corporate Welfare Warfare GOOD…
    Opposition is
    AAAAAAHHHH SOCIALISM! SOCIALISM! AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!

    Maybe they wouldn’t actually recognize the flag minus the stains of blood and bullshit.
