Sure...a much more likely scenario is they are just following basic marketing and skulls and flags (around july 4) sell to young boys.





That is a possibility, but these were in the Men's section, in sizes Small - XXXL




Go to an Ozzfest or any other concert like that in the summer and see a billion shirts with the design on that shirt.



LOL...Maybe they are in cahoots, and unbeknownst to me, Killer of Giants, was quietly playing over the instore public address system...

I may be a dumb hillbilly redneck, but I never said that...


Now now, I never said that either... I'll admit to impersonating one though.

They could be simply mounting their surfboard on the same wave as those who are!


And who would that be ? Obama ?

How many would it take? I didn't search the entire store and their website for more merchandise that gave me a creepy feeling when I saw it. But, who knows how much more exists? If, in fact, it is part of some agenda.


I'll admit that it gave me a creepy feeling too. It felt like someone had just slapped me in the eyeballs with a t-shirt.

Well, that's 14 $ more than I have to spend on clothes. That mansion doesn't pay it's own rent

Could be! Hence the thread and subsequent discussion...


So... What do you think ?

Badass skulls, and national flags have gone together very well for quite some time. This shirt design was probably taken right out of a tattoo shop somewhere, and plastered onto a shirt.

As for whether it is anti-American or not... Well, that depends on who you ask. Let's face it, some Americans think that it is preferable that American citizens continue to die of easily treatable diseases, just because those individuals cannot get health insurance, and it is for that reason that the current healthcare reforms are such a mangled mess, rather than being put through government in their original format.

Hell, it's why the US still HAS health insurance requirements of any kind, affordable or not, rather than payment for healthcare by taxation alone, which is the only fair way to do it.

So the question is not, is the T-shirt anti American, but just what does America stand for, that this t-shirt might conflict with?

I remember seeing shirts in Walmart for sale that had the totenkopf skull on them (a Nazi symbol).
I also remember seeing a ton of things being priced at exactly $14.88 (if you don't know what this is, click here). I mentioned it to a guy I worked with that was into white supremacy stuff and he told me it's because they have someone at the corporate offices who is pushing that stuff through.
So, who knows. It wouldn't be the first time Walmart has sold things with hidden messages.

I see him as more of a pawn or front man, who is so far out of his element, it is no longer funny...
I do love his slow-motion reactionary approach to politics, though... It's akin to a hollywood style reply from 10 different angles!

My jury is still out. That's why I started the thread. To elicit the thoughts of the illustrious minds on ATS, although I did so dubiously...

For true WalMart Haute Couture....

That Tshirt should be in wife beater style!

Sorry I just dont see it as being anything other than normal marketing that has been going on forever.

I could give multiple examples and i dont think it would change your opinion any from what you believe it is so have at it and a few rows over from that shirt they all sell tin-foil so you can make a nice hat!!! =) (im kidding on the tin-foil part)

It's the logo of a little known rock band:

The Grateful American Dead

But they never made it to the big time

(just kidding).
