Thanks!

I have a Che shirt too. I realise the whole "hypocricy" about it, but since I have to contribute to capitalism in order to stay clothed, I figure my clothes may as well express my beliefs.
Slay the masters, slay the soldiers, slay every man who holds a whip, but harm no child. Strike the chains off every slave you see.

That's pretty much how I feel about it I have a few communist shirts.
Once capitalists know we can release the Kraken, they'll back down and obey our demands for sure.

the cheapest commie thing i have is a Che wallet for $5
So I kill children, Does that make me a bad person?

That's awesome. Most people are too stupid to realize that, and then they start boycotting Coca-Cola and whatnot.

I know, it's so weird. It's funny because the minute people see you with the Che shirt they start saying "What kind of communist are YOU? You hypocritical idiot." But really, what am I supposed to do? Walk around naked? I HAVE to spend money to wear clothes. So why not have something I like on my clothing, right?

Some of those boycott fanatics only like you if you wear second hand clothes.

And it's difficult to contribute to socialism with buying clothes. You can buy North Korean clothes maybe.
The problem with the Che shirt is that is just a fashion thing. He is not the only communist!

Why the hell don't you just take a plain shirt and print something on it of paint it by yourself?
It's pretty dumb to me though to "advertise yourself" by exposing your political affiliation through clothes.Buying a Che wallet made in China by 8 year olds getting 1$ per day included.

that's definitely a cool idea/less hypocritical. I DIY a lot of my stuff anyway (and by DIY I mean cut up jackets and put safety pins on them) so I could have a lot of fun doing that, and I'd have something to say when people bitched at me for the Che shirt.

my first three shirts were spray painted with hammer and sickle stencils. They are still my favs. My third was a Che shirt I got printed in front of me in the Florida Keys. Then I bought a second hand guerilla hammer and sickle in NYC, and my other I bought in China Town

With spray paint? It's a little hardcore, no?
I don't make political t-shirts anymore, because my town is full of boneheads, and being hit one time is enough.
But I love my Night Of The Living Dead shirt and my Trainspotting hoodie

when you wash the spray paint like 3 times, its just a thin layer left on the fabric. It works quite well. I made 30+ for May Day two years ago for my commie friends at school

Why would I spend more money to make free shirts? Spray paint does well enough. Plus the hobby shop is farther than Home Depot.
