Well, they use it. So...

2017-07-07 19:44:30 UTC  

So did the people who built this country

2017-07-07 19:45:02 UTC  

Indeed. And that's what libertarians see themselves as trying to defend.

2017-07-07 19:45:30 UTC  

Or, rather, they used to anyway.

2017-07-07 19:45:37 UTC  

So we let them steal a historical flag?

2017-07-07 19:46:23 UTC  

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.

2017-07-07 19:46:40 UTC  

That's sad...

2017-07-07 19:47:22 UTC  

Perhaps if people would quit perpetuating that, people would stop thinking it

2017-07-07 19:47:31 UTC  


2017-07-07 19:48:16 UTC  

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.

2017-07-07 19:48:47 UTC  

It doesn't really matter what other people associate with it, in this context.

2017-07-07 19:49:58 UTC  

I say fly a Gadsden flag at every rally we hold.

2017-07-07 19:50:30 UTC  

You should fly one of these instead

2017-07-07 19:50:56 UTC  

Lest people mistake you for a libertarian lol

2017-07-07 19:51:22 UTC  

Well I'd have my ie flag in my other hand so...

2017-07-07 19:51:36 UTC  

I mean if people are that stupid lol

2017-07-07 19:54:04 UTC  

I prefer we appropriate this as our patriotic America fascist flag.

2017-07-07 19:54:57 UTC  

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

2017-07-07 19:55:09 UTC  

For me it's heritage

2017-07-07 19:55:29 UTC  

Imagine our rally has this and your Gasden flag remakes

2017-07-07 19:55:52 UTC  

I guess it's just come to represent too individualistic an outlook for me to identify with the Gadsden flag

2017-07-07 19:55:58 UTC  

Still looks American, yet distinct.

2017-07-07 19:56:33 UTC  

But I get what you're saying and I think the above flags are really cool.

2017-07-07 19:58:08 UTC  

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?

2017-07-07 19:58:38 UTC  

Just a thought

2017-07-07 20:00:22 UTC  

Idk, I think it would just give them more a reason to openly disavow

2017-07-07 20:01:50 UTC  

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"

2017-07-07 20:04:00 UTC  

I get that. I think inevitably they'll be pushed this way anyway tbh, but getting them to do so willingly would be better

2017-07-07 20:05:17 UTC  

Worse comes to worse it'd just trigger them into acting like the ignoramus they are

2017-07-09 15:42:20 UTC  

I say bring the Gadsen.

2017-07-10 02:26:23 UTC  

Has anyone printed out the shitty tweets from Wes Bellamy?

2017-07-10 02:26:39 UTC  


2017-07-10 21:43:56 UTC  

We had them at the last event

2017-07-10 22:33:50 UTC

2017-07-10 22:34:44 UTC  

@AltRightVa May still have them, I believe he printed them

2017-07-10 22:49:28 UTC  

Oh yeah I still have them. I think I got about 15 of them still

2017-07-11 16:29:57 UTC  

Generation Identitaire ships quickly!
