What's a "gun goober" ?

Soon after a photo of Chris wearing the T-shirt hit the internet, Twitter users took to the social media site to express their opinions about the wardrobe choice. “That shirt doesn’t support our country. People are really out here in 2019 thinking the ‘don’t tread on me’ image is ‘patriotic’. Good lord,” one user wrote. “Nice shirt… Only people I see with that flag are alt-right racists….” another said.

The flag still stands as a symbol of pride and rememberance of those who sacrificed all to see us a nation of free citizens.


That hasn't changed a bit under a Trump presidency. Not for the vast majority of us anyway. If you see the flag as having been hijacked by Trump I can't convince you otherwise but this perspective should be sufficient to respond to your "argument."

I disagree. The shirt does represent our country. Many who wear it do not. You might argue that I am trying to drive an elephant through the eye of a needle and I won't argue that you have no point but those who fly this flag, should also support the rainbow flag and really a long list of other things I rarely see them support.

The flag is supposed to represent freedom but so many who fly it IMO only care about the freedom they care about.

If no one cared about it would this thread exist?

Our flag does NOT represent "go back where you came from". Especially when most of them came from here.

I can't speak for anonymous twitter users; plenty of nutjobs abound in all demographics.


IRL - there is literally no one flying this flag in my area OR caring about it one whit.

I never knew Metallica used that flag or symbol once, see? I learned new things today!

People who always assuming the worst about other people must live a very miserable life. lol
