"Who told you 9/11 was perpetrated by the government?"

"A little bird told me."

A great idea.

What cracks me up the most is that you put a link to a detail view. I mean it's not exactly intensely intricate line work here. Funny. That bird is adorable, I'd rather he told me than anybody else.

I like the idea of this tee, but i'd never wear it cause i think that birdie is speaking hogwash! I agree, this shoulda been your select so Threadless would have NO CHOICE but to print it.

Kiran-Fai,

There's a big difference between denying the holocaust and questioning the official story of 9/11. The conspiracy theory in my design is NOT suggesting that 9/11 never took place. It's suggesting that there's more to the story that we were told. It's not an insult to the people who lost their lives.

ladrones
ladrones profile pic Alumni

im not sold on a conspiracy theory, but there are many things about 9-11 that left people with questions.

i think that it is more respectful to the lives lost, to ask those questions and seek the truth behind this. Or would some of you people rather have the president and fox news use 9-11 for fear-mongering.

9-11 is the best thing to happen to conservatives. It allowed them to abuse their power and use fear to put a strangle hold on our liberties.

Even if the government did not order it, they still used it and continue to use it to justify every one of their questionable actions in the last 5 years. Argue about the morality of that.

safety? goodness. god forbid anyone wears anything controversial nowadays! the every-day republicans might get you!
what i really don't understand is how everyone is taking this shirt so seriously, am i the only one who can see it open ended? it's a cartoon bird! doesn't that just scream tongue-in-cheek?

ginetteginette
ginetteginette profile pic Alumni

i just decided to up my score from a 4 to a 5 and buy, because i like stirred up shit.

helo

be sure to put a beard on the bird too along with a turban

Hello all,

The folloeing is a message about my design which I posted a few days earlier in a separate blog:

“A Little Bird Told Me” should, in no way, be viewed as making light of the tragedy of September 11. As someone who witnessed the towers collapse on the street firsthand that day, I know how powerful that event was. I’m a different person today because of what I saw.

There is also nothing funny about elements within our intelligence infrastructure possibly playing a role in 9/11. Or, for conspiracy theorists of another view, there is nothing funny about the possibility of the government having foreknowledge of a massive terror attack and letting it happen on purpose.

There is, however, something inherently funny about a bluebird swooping down from the sky, landing in the middle of children’s birthday party or something, and in a high, squeaky voice, exclaiming something extremely controversial. That's what this is all about.

My goal with this design was to find a way to say something that people don’t want to hear in a really cute and marketable way.

Additional Note:

For those who think that the conspiracy theory included in my design is deplorable and completely out of the realm of possibility, google "Operation Northwoods" and you might get a different perspective on things.

shirtflirt

nice call with Op Northwoods.

what if you changed the bird to the a donkey. or, what was the book bush was reading to kindergarten class when the plan unfolded? that would be funny.

but i 'get' the little blue bird icon, too.
i have no doubt, that because we were fed half truths and lies since it went down that the administration in power guided the events of the day so that they could mold the outcome and further certain monetary establishments worldwide.

the parallel between today's conflict and vietnam begins to look more and more like history repeating itself.

shirtflirt

ketchupandmustard, it's ok to feel pain. it was a painful occurrence. i only hope that you have the wherewithall to take in all the facts, find some contradictions for yourself and then make up your own mind.

Again, this design isn'y about the tragedy of 9/11. It's about questioning the official story of what happened. The lack of critical thinking displayed in some of these comments is actually offensive to me.

shirtflirt

most don't equate critical thinking and assessing our 'elected leaders' as 'american'.

it's just a conditioning. it can change.
