Unless you make a habit of reading inane agitprop cranked out by people like Mike “The Gun Guy” Weisser, you’re probably blissfully unaware that the hoplophobic harpies at Moms Demand Action have randomly declared today is Wear Orange Day. Why? To oppose “gun violence.” Because orange means safety. Or something. Really, who the hell can tell what the thought process there was? Whatever the case, commenter FlaResident wrote the following about the sartorial selection he’s making today: “I’m wearing my ENDO ‘Keep calm and carry one‘ shirt to work to make it clear to anyone wearing orange which side I am on” . . .
As a side note, I was wearing the same shirt a couple of days ago while traveling. I’m standing at baggage claim waiting for my bag and a 20-something young lady walks up beside me about four feet away. I couldn’t see the front of her shirt and she couldn’t see the front of mine. I turned to face her direction because I saw my bag coming down the conveyor and she turned my direction as she struggled to get her bag off the conveyor.
As she looked over at me I saw a look that was a cross between a Billy Idol “White Wedding” sneer and a “Who stepped in dog crap?” look. She then made sure and turned her back to me and took a step away (even though the exit was behind me), so that I could see the big Demanding Moms logo on the back of her shirt, before she whipped around and walked briskly by.
I would never dream of giving the same “I wish you were dead” look to someone who hasn’t said a word to me, just because I disagree with what’s on their t-shirt, but yet that’s not the first time I’ve had the other side act like it’s their duty to do so. I guess besides not teaching gun safety, the Moms also don’t teach manners.
