That American flag punisher skull is a choice for sure. Not really sure what it's trying to say though.

u/joe2596 Sep 22 '22

No idea either since The Punisher would probably kill everyone in this video.

u/VanillaLifestyle Sep 22 '22

Lmao, and all the cops / cop bootlickers with thin blue line flags on punisher skulls.

u/YamSamwiches Sep 22 '22

The Punisher fucking hates cops, but he doesn’t really kill them. I’m pretty sure he’s only done that in one run.

u/UVLightOnTheInside Sep 22 '22

The irony isnt lost on anyone, except the people who wear punisher clothing.

u/DesparateLurker Sep 22 '22

Punisher hates cops alright. Especially the cops who fanboy boy over him, put his logo on their cars and imply they might do the crap he does. I thought he was neutral or cool with the ones who oppose him like they should.

u/BjornInTheMorn Sep 23 '22

Yea there's a scene in the comics of him ripping up a sticker and telling some cops to start being a fan of captain America if I rember correctly. He may have also threatened them?

u/Gohlgotha Sep 22 '22

Punisher loves cops. He killed his sidekick without hesitation when he realized the sidekick had killed a cop back in the day.

Fr idk what's going on here it's like a clusterfuck of confused right wingers.

I hate it when they say they're "patriots" it's used as nauseum almost to the point where it's like Bible Thumpers talking about how much they love god with no backbone to it

Also fuck the KKK

Flag is backwards. He is signaling duress

54

u/BigUncleHeavy Sep 22 '22

Close, but not correct. A flag upside down is a signal of duress. A flag "backwards" represents running towards danger, often seen in military patches and memorabilia.

24

u/HintOfAreola Sep 22 '22

To add, it's "backwards" when it's worn on the right sleeve. The idea being that, on a flagpole, that's the way it would look moving forward.

As for the way it is on the shirt, front facing, it is backwards. So you can see what they were going for, but they didn't understand enough of the context to execute the idea correctly. Go figure.

6

u/Gr1ml0ck Sep 22 '22

This is the correct answer.

3

u/BigUncleHeavy Sep 22 '22

You definitely added good info there. For the reasons you stated, military members wear the patch on the right to represent moving forward. The symbolism is that we head into danger/battle, not run from it.

u/MyChains Sep 22 '22

The stars lead the charge.

u/smootex Sep 22 '22

A flag "backwards" represents running towards danger

I always thought that was dumb. Like yeah, if it's a patch on your right arm, sure, that makes sense. But on your chest? What if you're running right to left towards danger? If the danger is to the left and the flag is backwards doesn't that imply he's running away from danger?

1

u/ngc2555 Sep 25 '22

The union should always be on the upper left, which is why I said it's backwards. Maybe it's semantics, I don't care too much. I'm familiar with the whole "charging into battle so it's facing wherever" thing, but when it's straight down like that, my understanding was that the union should always be on the left.

Either way the shirt is dumb.

u/SeanMegaByte Sep 22 '22

The punisher skull has become this kind of defacto image usually signaling support for the police or the military, but more specifically support for their questionable behavior. This dude in the video probably tells himself he's not racist because he "doesn't hate anyone just for being black", while at the same time would try telling you that George Floyd was a criminal who resisted arrest.

The only reason I even bother saying "probably" is because it's also possible he knows he's racist and just doesn't like that the KKK are open about it when he wants to keep it secret.

u/Waluigi3030 Sep 22 '22

Lol, gotta hate him no matter what, Eh? That's why we can't have a working political system, genius.

2

u/SeanMegaByte Sep 22 '22

You don't get to vote for a racist reality television star and then expect people to treat you like you have a legitimate political position worth considering.

1

u/Waluigi3030 Sep 22 '22

You're a fucking moron. Being anti kkk is a solid position, you cunt

u/NorthKoreanJesus Sep 22 '22

It's very popular among big bad boiz woof woof. and cops. who are also racist...hmm

2

u/tiffanaih Sep 22 '22

Glad Punisher addressed the logical disconnect of cops trying to place this symbol on their cars and uniforms in a recent comic.

1

u/NorthKoreanJesus Sep 22 '22

Yeah but cops don't read, even comics.

u/Klendy Sep 22 '22

That American flag punisher skull is a choice for sure. Not really sure what it's trying to say though.

i lick boots and fantasize about violence to groups i dislike

The video is about this dude yelling. This dude is wearing a nonsensical shirt and also doing a nonsensical thing. You could absolutely talk about every drink someone has in the video too if you want. Because it's part of the video. Where this is happening is part of the video. The kkk offscreen is part of the video. "This paragraph describing what someone looks like isn't a part of the story in this book." just keeps getting better.

It's not just that his shirt is weird dumb ass. It's that he's wearing a nonsensical shirt while at a Trump rally yelling at people at the trump rally about how they're making him look bad, which is also nonsensical because it's being there that makes him look bad. It speaks to his nature as a person.

Look if it's you in the video, which seems like the explanation for your lunacy at this point, I'm sorry I pointed out your dumb shirt. You're clearly unstable if you are so desperate to defend a stranger's honor online. Go check your star chart and fix yourself.

I mean i dont agree with it but he obviously sees America as this unwavering badass force

u/NJ_Bob Sep 22 '22

This is that Walmart drip tho- right down to the red Skechers... What blows my mind is that trump supporters iconic piece of clothing is a red hat and this fashionista goes black on an otherwise monochrome fit. Clearly this man lives on the bleeding edge of fascist fashion. Hugo Boss for a new generation.
