#FERGUSON protestor returns tear gas canister back to sender…
This is Amerikkka 2014
while eating his chips lol
People so often use “iconic” to refer to things that are not iconic, but I feel like this picture really will be.
I said it before in a tag, but I think the American flag T-shirt is what’s going to make this the biggest image to come out of Ferguson. Few things make an impression like wearing a T-shirt with the flag of the land of the free and the home of the brave on it while you throw back a tear gas canister that the people who are supposed to be protecting you threw at you in the first place just for protesting.
I just wanted to reblog one more post about this with this picture because I felt it was important to let people know how the media is using it. I watched an ABC news report where they threw this picture up while explaining that the protesters retaliated with “Molotov cocktails” against the police when it’s clearly a tear gas canister being thrown BACK to the police who threw it in the first place, really frustrating.
fuck the police and fuck the media who is spreading misinformation
