Well, they use it. So...
So did the people who built this country
Indeed. And that's what libertarians see themselves as trying to defend.
Or, rather, they used to anyway.
So we let them steal a historical flag?
Lol. Go ahead and stop them, I guess. But they've been using it for quite some time, and that's the association made by many people when they see the flag.
Perhaps if people would quit perpetuating that, people would stop thinking it
The libertarians themselves use it, and think of it as theirs... so that's where the subversion aspect comes in by making it into a fascist flag.
It doesn't really matter what other people associate with it, in this context.
I say fly a Gadsden flag at every rally we hold.
You should fly one of these instead
Lest people mistake you for a libertarian lol
Well I'd have my ie flag in my other hand so...
I mean if people are that stupid lol
I prefer we appropriate this as our patriotic America fascist flag.
I mean at the end of the day people can think what they want, but both sides of my family flew a Gadsden flag in battle so for me it means a little more
For me it's heritage
Imagine our rally has this and your Gasden flag remakes
I guess it's just come to represent too individualistic an outlook for me to identify with the Gadsden flag
Still looks American, yet distinct.
But I get what you're saying and I think the above flags are really cool.
As far as subversion goes, I think it would make sense to fly a regular Gadsden flag, even if it meant being perceived as libertarians. Wouldn't that mean that they'd be associated with our movement and thus inevitably be pushed further right?
Just a thought
Idk, I think it would just give them more a reason to openly disavow
The fasces Gadsden might get them curious since it's similar, but also representing an idea many libertarians reject immediately - the sense of a cohesive "us"
I get that. I think inevitably they'll be pushed this way anyway tbh, but getting them to do so willingly would be better
Worse comes to worse it'd just trigger them into acting like the ignoramus they are
I say bring the Gadsen.
Its a HIGH TESTOSTERONE flag.
Has anyone printed out the shitty tweets from Wes Bellamy?
We had them at the last event
Oh yeah I still have them. I think I got about 15 of them still
Generation Identitaire ships quickly!
