Are Your Tattoos in Order?

November 2nd, 2009 by

Using a bit of word play on the famous question traditionally asked by the Nazi Gestapo, I want to point out that it would seem that our beloved government is once again determined to dictate what we place on our skin, along with what we think, eat, breathe, wipe our ass with, etc, etc.

Now I’m not talking about Aryan tattoos, Extremist tattoos, or even tattoos that make disgusting racial slurs. I’m talking about good old patriotic tattoos that harken back to the days when our founding fathers were the revolutionaries. This could quite possibly soon include any Sanskrit, or Arabic lettering you may decide to have done. Even if all it says is “I love my Mama!”
Gadsden flag
In a move that echoes the same tactics used by the infamous East Germany Stasi, (the secret police who employed over 274,000 informers to “root out the class enemy”, many of whom were forced or bribed into service), the Federal Bureau of Intimidation has been passing out flyers to Philadelphia tattoo artists in an attempt to get them to inform on their clients.

One of the main tattoos they want the tattoo artists to inform on their clients about is the famous Gadsden flag. One of the historic “Don’t Tread On Me” flags that were so popular during the American Revolution, and in the past was also used by The United States Marine Corps as an early motto flag.

According to the pamphlet being handed out by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, (part of the Department of in-Justice), in league with the FBI the Gadsden flag and several other patriotic tattoos are symbols of militias, and said militias are “white supremacists,” domestic terrorists and a threat to the president, as well as members of such third party organizations as the Libertarian party. Face it, if your not a Elephant or a Donkey…you are a terrorist!

Hell, every one of them is another Timothy McVeigh waiting to happen and we should hang them all! (Ever notice the more they deride the Nazis and the Socialists the more they act just like them? What is wrong with that picture?)

While they have this disclaimer at the bottom;

“It is important to remember that just because someone’s speech, actions, beliefs, appearance, or way of life is different; it does not mean that he, or she, is suspicious.”

It is quickly followed by a “What should I do?” section that states;

“Watch for people and actions that are out of place.”

Isn’t that the same as speech, actions, beliefs, appearance, or way of life which is different?! WTF?!

I don’t think their rat campaign is going to be very successful, though. I for one would take the pamphlet with a smile, agree with the lazy assed government official trying to get me to do his job for him. Then kick his Totalitarian ass out of my democratic shop and use it to wipe my dog’s ass.

Considering what those guys get paid, and the government benefits they enjoy, I think they should do their own friggin’ shit work and earn it.
