The Facebook Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I'd wager it's the sorta-but-not-really hidden "fuck" on the shirt that was the problem.

I cant tell if some of those comments are real or just parodying Facebook comments.

People like being outraged at stuff. It's like a drug. I have found myself at times becoming an outrage junky, but weened myself off of it before it was too late.

It could be argued I post this Facebook gold because it gives me something to be outraged at, but it really just amuses me to no end. I find it hilarious and feel no outrage.

This dudes post is simply the greatest example of the manufacturing of outrage I've yet to find. Outrage sells. Outrage spreads like wild fire through social media. If you're selling a product, tap into people's outrage.

How to sell psuedo-patriotic crypto-fascist tacti-cool mall-warrior t-shirts and make bank:

Step 1: wake up Saturday morning, make your son wear your t shirt.
Step 2: take photo with him.
Step 3: immediately post pic to Facebook claiming son got suspended from school for wearing it, implying it was because of the American flag and Gadsden snake, and not the implied"fuck".
Step 4: $$$$$$$

Looks like the whole t-shirt incident was a PR stunt misusing a school for the benefit of a redneck trailer trash YT channel and Facebook page. If it even happened, it'll be funny if we learn that the boy is really homeskuled.

That man is a genius.

He's figured out a way to commoditize the "Patriotic American tough guy AR-15 liberal hater ant-safe space" meme and cash out.

do all cons think anti-war songs are patriotic songs because when the word America is in the song?

They hated these songs when they were written - now they even use Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner

Fortunate Son (lyrics)

Bruce Springsteen's Born In The U. S. A. (lyrics) is a good one for that.

This song probably wasn't misunderstood, but I thought of it since it, along with Born In The U. S. A., was featured in a play I was in called Tracers.



Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon
Lyrics

It was played as the audience was settling in and I was dancing in the wings trying to get my head right for the show. I still get chills 30 years later. Half the cast were Vietnam vets, I was "Baby San" (not the actor at the link, that was the original production).

"Born in the USA" was co-opted for the election campaigns of Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and then Pat Buchanan, each time until Springsteen objected. It seems obvious that none ever listened to the lyrics beyond "Born in the USA..."

Reagan's team tried to replace it with John Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" (Ain't that America...) but was turned down.

They couldn't have listened to the "Pink Houses" lyrics, either. Good god, what a depressing song.
