Thin blue line.

If they are marketing that to southerners they could fit one of those car dealership sized flags up in there.

This offers a plan to get you some slack if ever pulled over by police.  Kind of like the "I support the Police Retirement Fund" stickers for your rear bumper.  Only this helps when police go in for the cavity search.  You'd better hope it helps cause you don't want to be wearing them if you turn up in the holding cell and Bubba starts checking your arse for oil.

Some moron down the street from me had a "blue lives matter" bumper sticker on his car. I walked by the other day and noticed it was gone. I wondered if recent events have gotten through to him. Probably not, though... he's probably just fearful of his car being targeted.

TFA: The greatest trick the Waltons ever pulled was convincing Southerners they were a family business operated by downhome folks who understood family values and the importance of community, all while replacing Main Streets across those rural communities with discount warehouses that exploit and underpay workers.

Bullshiat. Rednecks have never cared about these things and are only vaguely aware that Walmart is kinda-sorta family owned. They go there because it's cheap and convenient.

I think the thin blue line flag came first but it always reminds me of the black and white Puerto Rican flag popular after Congress passed an austerity bill in 2016:

They're talking about no longer flying the Mississippi state flag. Did any of you actually read the article? (This Fark, of course. The facts never get in the way of the need to rip things apart)

And if someone could stop the circle-jerk long enough to explain how the Thin Blue Line flag is "racist," I'd appreciate it. I wasn't aware that "police" was a race.
 
2020-06-25 5:09:25 PM  
I can understand why you'd have thin blue line shiat if you're a cop. But if you're not, you're a high-level bootlicker and I'm not really one to throw that phrase around.

Pretty sure that only came out, or at least gained widespread use, as a response to Black Lives Matter.

"Oh, black lives matter, huh? Well that's racist and I think police lives matter even more! Yeah that's right, I said it! In fact, I'm gonna put this little sticker on my truck so that everyone knows that I looooove the police! I think they're the best and if you don't, you're probably antifa! I can't get enough of police brutality! It kicks ass! I would happily die at their hands!"

It's used in response to people who think that cops shouldn't be prosecuted for terrorizing, brutalizing and murdering black people.

If you *really* think that a "thin blue line" is all that separates you from chaos, then you live in Afghanistan, Iraq, or Somalia.

If you're a LEO, and think that way, you're neither protecting nor serving, you're an occupation force.

Speaking of that, I've been looking for neck gaiters for my employees, and there is a locally-owned vendor that we usually use for things like that (because they are locally owned, and have the municipal tax-exempt paperwork on file).  They carry a cheap line of neck gaiters, but they are the creepy gun nut type (95% polyester, 5% spandex).  I bought one for myself to try it out, and it is a "carbon fiber" pattern.  The only other pattern on the shelf was an American flag pattern.  The rest was FR rated and expensive.  I checked their catalog for high-visibility orange (perfect for working outside, and close to the high school colors), and the catalog was almost entirely punisher skulls and joker faces.  With a few "tactical [color]" ones as well, like a "tactical orange".  I don't see how orange can be tactical, but whatever.  When we reopen to the public, I will have those available for employees to wear so we can save the promotional cloth masks for visitors and the N-95s for hazards like mold, but the options in that catalog were creepy.  The whole punisher and tacticool line of stuff is creepy, especially when cops buy that sort of stuff.

I don't find it too strange, politics in most of Latin America has a pretty similar right-left spectrum to the US, so the 30% of people with hard right beliefs aren't going to suddenly become Democrats because of identity politics.

That's a great question.  Also, their flag isn't valid because it has no gold fringe.  Or it does have a gold fringe.  And no step on snek.  🙄

United States politics are boring because most people are more or less centrists. Besides a few wedge issues, there's very little difference between Republicans and Democrats. Latin America (and Europe to a lesser extent) gets wild with the swings between the left and right.

Well that's for sure, I just meant our conception of "sides" generally lines up better with each other than compared to, say, most of the Old World outside of Western Europe.
