Open Thread — Don’t Tread On Me

by Brad Warbiany

Gadsden Info
I’m a bit of a fan of the Gadsden flag. I’ve got a 3′ x 5′ version from here. Back in the day, this was my old office.

So when I found out that there’s a designer clothing line centered around the Don’t Tread On Me logo, I was a bit intrigued.

But I started looking at their designs. There’s something that doesn’t quite turn me on about these… It seems as if it’s far more “hip” than it is authentic.

So what do you think? Is it a shameless ploy to capitalize on a long-standing tradition by catering to the “in-crowd”? Or is it a gateway that might bring people to the actual philosophy and history behind “Don’t Tread On Me”?

    Brad:

    Capitalism at its best I say. I would much prefer seeing the Gadsen Flag (stylized or traditional) in pop culture than the likes of Che or Mao Hopefully, with popularity of the Gadsen Flag more people will educate themselves on its meaning.
