Don't Tase Me, Bro!
The phrase, “Don’t Tase Me, Bro” was cried out by a University of Florida student on Monday after he was hauled away from a microphone by police at a forum featuring Sen. John Kerry. Andrew Meyer was demanding to know why Kerry conceded the 2004 presidential election despite overwhelming evidence of mass voter fraud, was doing so in a somewhat heated manner, and you know what that means. It’s Taserin’ time!
According to Wired the phrase has been one of the top searched items on Google this week, and in the spirit of true market capitalism, you can already buy the t-shirt in women’s, men’s, long sleeve, short sleeve, all with customizable colors! You won’t have free speech anymore, but at least you’ll have a sweet t-shirt.
This t-shirt might be your only deterrent from a Tase-session these days. Even a 15-year-old autistic boy was Tased by Orange County Sheriff’s deputies on Tuesday after running into traffic.
Could “Don’t Tase Me, Bro!” be today’s Gadsden Flag slogan? Don’t Tread On Me, Bro!
