Amusing: Screwing With Fascists

You know, we always teach that two wrongs don’t make a right, but what if one of those wrongs is abstract?

If your T-shirt can do it, so can you.Neo-Nazis in Germany were given free T-shirts at a recent right-wing extremist rock concert. The black shirt, complete with skulls and bones, said “Hardcore Rebels: National and Free”. Too bad for them, there was a secret message hidden inside the shirt.

See, after the free shirt gets washed, it rids itself of that “hardcore” logo and displays a new message, one that tries to convince the Neo-Nazis to change. It says: “If your T-shirt can do it, so can you. We’ll help free you from right-wing extremism.” It’s a ‘Trojan T-shirt’ of sorts, giving clueless skinheads free ‘hardcore’ T-shirts only to blindside them with contact information on how to leave Neo-Nazism. I like it.

I mean, yes, to the one that’s a really priggish thing to do to someone. To the other, though, these are neo-Nazis. So at what point is it acceptable to be a dick to an even bigger dick, and why does it always come back to cockfights?
