When people wear a conservative political t-shirt with a slogan emblazoned across it that carries a message they believe in, it usually carries the weight of conviction with it. I don’t know many people who would wear a t-shirt that has a message that means nothing to them. Even when a shirt is merely fashionable, the person wearing it must at least like what the shirt looks like.
People who call themselves “conservative” tend to be very strong-minded about their ideals. Many of these ideals are based on a religious faith, and nothing in history has been known to inspire as much fervent behavior as faith in God. When this Godly faith is brought over into the realm of government, conviction takes control. That’s why these conservative political t-shirts can be so strongly worded.
The very act of wearing a conservative political t-shirt is a very in-your-face gesture. It takes something very personal to the wearer and puts it on display to be judged and confronted. This is why you see so many people wearing these shirts become so rigid when they observe someone reading their shirt. The body language they adopt is confrontational and challenging.
You can observe these conservative political t-shirts everywhere you may go. Conservatives who want to share their message in this passive-aggressive manner are apt to wear these shirts everywhere just for an opportunity to engage people across the isle in debate. While these conservative political t-shirts are used to show support to others of similar political tilt at rallies, they are also universally used to propagate a message.
Please don’t assume these musings are meant as an attack against conservatives, because I happen to be one. The intent is merely to inform the liberal public that conservative political t-shirts are not a weapon against the left. These shirts are designed to engage people of opposing views and to form a camaraderie with people with similar political viewpoints. Consider these as invitations of debate, but be prepared to have a very emphatic conversation partner.
