In case you need your right-wing silliness levels topped up, here’s a good one from Glenn Beck, CNN’s in-house blowhard: if you wear a Che Guevara t-shirt, you’re probably a terrorist. Yep, always good at turning anything into a screed, Beck has determined that because some of the army officials that pulled off the rescue wore them, they are de riguer in the terrorist set. Not only that, *only* terrorists wear them. See the logic?
Sure, there’s plenty of talk of one intelligence team member, nervous about the mission, who wore a Red Cross symbol against orders. But other accounts confirm the use of something you can probably pick up at any mall: a Che Guevara T-shirt.
That’s right, the same T-shirts you see Hollywood celebrities, starving pseudo-artists and confused hipster teens wearing around local coffee shops. To all those who decide that you want to be coffee house communist-chic, remember this: When you are wearing a Che T-shirt, you’re wearing the same shirt that makes terrorists believe you’re just one of the gang. I hope that latte is tasty.
See that – the people that don’t agree with him seem to all wear them, too – lefties all. Bastards. Commies. He even has to reference that old “latte-drinking” trope. Please, Glenn, what about us black coffee drinking socialists that figure there’s got to be a better way than the “who dies with the most wins” system we have now? Those that, like I think you do, know there is a difference between socialism and communism, and understand that denigrating modern socialists with the “Che” and “communist” brush, is simply an attempt to deny that there just might be a better way to go about business.
You seriously need to get better material – I mean, who writes this stuff? You?
