patriotism at its finest

If you don’t buy a 9/11 flag cookie, you are un-American.

    Every time I see a flag stuck where it doesn’t quite belong — although these do look tasty — I think of the Before Times, in the 70s, when there was general outrage at America’s youth for using the stars ‘n’ stripes inappropriately, e.g., to patch clothes, or as a bandana. It was disrespectful! Those commie-pinko hippies! Sitting on Ol’ Glory! The noive!

    It’s a curious piece of cultural transubstantiation that’s turned the flag into something we absolutely MUST consume in as many ways possible.

    It’s so true S. I think about that, too. It’s OK for right wingers to wear flag t-shirts, flag socks, flag pins, flag hats. But anyone who thinks politically different it is subversive, unAmerican, and a slap in the face to all that is holy in this land. Food, on the other hand, has always been allowed to be patriotic. Witness M. Stewart’s annual July food issue featuring food shaped flags of all sorts, or cookies like these.

    I guess context is everything.
