Old SA Flag T-Shirt

Apartheid Sales Ploy



Street hawkers using “disruptive” marketing tactics to “cut through the clutter”. Whether wearing the old apartheid South African flag on a t-shirt improves broom, feather duster and loofa sales in Norwood, remains to be seen.

    Wow. Thats bold. Broom sales aside, I would like to reach a point where old symbols like the flag become kitsch curiosities and open to this type of use which drains them of any power they once had. As opposed to say Nazi symbols in Germany (not saying its the same thing, right?) but which have been legislated against and made a big deal of, and which remain a powerful rallying point for fuckwits.

    No, this is just kak. It will serve no purpose than to encourage white racists and to counter-act nation-building. It should be discouraged with the same disdain afforded the appearance of old SA flags at rugby matches.

    Hey we’re all smousing something… and this dude, regardless of the emotive reaction his t-shirt may evoke in the educated and politically aware – is getting people’s attention and that is helping him to sell his shit. This is capitalism at work and respect to him for having the balls and the brains to try this on…

    I think you’re giving the guy too much credit. That was a free t-shirt.

    …and tomorrow, at the next ANC rally, he’s going to nail the white ou again for his apartheid bullcrap. Hypocrite.
    I pity the poor fool who buys his worthless junk because he’s wearing oranje, blanje blou. Maybe he’ll have better luck in Pretoria. Norwood is Jewish central, isn’t it? Maybe he should wear the star of David instead.

    I’m with RiaanP !! Funny how the Jew ‘joburg tom’ has a dislike to Aparthied but as a professing Jew the true jews supported the old South Africa big time. Maybe the jews should give up their apartheid in the arab lands and give all to the Saudies??

    Now that’s a great idea if ‘joberg tom’ is living there. What an imoral jew! No understanding of biblical Israel we see!
