This lone protester is standing outside the suspected gunmen's apartment complex in Texas' cartoon shooting. This picture was taken by a bystander, but because of his shirt, he is getting flack. What do you think?

In my gut I want to ask where can I buy the shirt? I understand that probably isn't constructive.

MAJ Zeski, I think the t-shirt confuses the religion of Islam with the person who calls him/herself a muslim, therefore would not be constructive to make such a bold statement. I would apologize for having the initial gut feeling of where to purchase it and not wear the t-shirt in public!

How about, " F*ck individuals who use any radicalized form of religion as a platform to spread hate, terror, and infringe on any persons rights and individuals freedoms." You may need a bigger shirt or smaller font.

If you can wear a shirt that says all that, and it's readable, you may have issues with AR 600-9.........

It isn't one or the other. He chose to use his freedom of speech in an inflammatory way. If they can burn our flag, and step on our flag, he can certainly wave our flag. Will he get shot for his actions? He is probably more at risk than someone else, but perhaps that is what he is going for. It is like many freedoms that we have. Just because we have a legal right to do something, doesn't mean that we should do something. We can either fight against different groups or work towards getting along together. We each have to decide what world we want to belong to.

It may well be in poor taste and it certainly can be viewed as wanting to pick a fight. But it is his right. As said several time though. Being in the right does not make it right.

If it's freedom of speech to walk over our flag this is fine by me.

Let's share the wealth. Your rights aren't any more important than mine or anyone else's. This man did what he believes so be it.
