The Great Pac Sun Controversy May26

The Great Pac Sun Controversy...

  Pacific Sunwear, Inc. sold a shirt with an Anarchy sign and an upside down flag … a universally and formally acknowledged symbol of distress. Clothing designer, A$AP Rocky explained his design with the following statement … ‘The reason that those flags are upside down are because our world is upside down. We’re just trying to be understood’. So basically its a just t-shirt that like most t-shirts with anarchy signs portrays a confusing and inconclusive social message of ‘rebellion’, likely to be bought and worn by people who will put little to no thought into any part of it. Who cares. But this Memorial Day 2015 the facebook patriots have decided that they are not going to take it. And as yet another testimony that most have never had a real problem in life … they have launched a massive social media campaign threatening to boycott Pac Sun, a retailer that most of them never even heard of prior to their conservative social media feeds alerting them to this ‘problem’. While I normally would not give a F and just ad this to the long list of meaningless bullshit modern conservatives complain about, there are 3 glaring ironies to the great Pac Sun controversy that I just cant get over … 1. Those taking issue with the ‘horribly offensive t-shirt’ that has no baring on their life whatsoever are ironically almost always the same people conveying the very messages on this t-shirt. If your social media feed is full of rants about the president being a Kenyan Antichrist, how American policy is precursor to the apocalypse and how Rand Paul’s political ideals make sense … you probably should be wearing anarchy symbols and upside down flags. 2. Rabid conservatives have been using this imagery to convey their disdain for modern american policy since the evil black Kenyan was elected president. Even soldiers who actually understand what an upside...
