Chris Pratt is one of the biggest and most beloved movie stars in the world. The “Parks & Recreation” funny man made a huge leap after the NBC show was over to starring in two different franchises – “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
He’s the man.
And now liberals are furious because Pratt wore a t-shirt they think is racist.
Nothing is sacred in America any longer. Liberals love to throw around words like “bigotry,” “misogyny” and “racism” with zero regard for what the words actually mean. Everything is one of those words according to them.
That includes movie star Chris Pratt apparently.
Yahoo news is facing heavy criticism for an article calling Pratt a “white supremacist” because he wore a T-shirt with the Gadsden flag.
Pratt was seen wearing a T-shirt featuring the American flag with a coiled rattlesnake in front of it with the text, “Don’t tread on me.”
The coiled rattlesnake and the “Don’t tread on me” motto are from the iconic Gadsden flag, which was created by American general Christopher Gadsden in 1775 during the Revolutionary War. It was meant to symbolize liberty and freedom.
The site’s article, entitled “Chris Pratt criticized for ‘white supremacist’ T-shirt,” stated: “Although it is one of the symbols and flags used by the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team, Metallica, as well as some libertarian groups, over the years the flag has been adopted by Far Right political groups like the Tea Party, as well as gun-toting supporters of the Second Amendment. It has therefore become a symbol of more conservative and far right individuals and, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the US, it also is ‘sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts.'”
The article also included six posts from Twitter users knocking Pratt’s shirt, one of them accusing the actor of wearing a shirt with a “white supremacist dogwhistle.”
Ben Shapiro blew up this nonsense when he tweeted, “Not every symbol of the early republic is a white supremacist symbol, unless you are a moron.”
Social media is such a ridiculous echo chamber of irrational criticism and this proves it. There is nothing about the idea of wanting less of a big government being a terrible idea. Apparently, that means you’re a “white supremacist.”
Pratt has done some incredible things in recent years too.
Pratt sent out an epic tribute to police officers on National Law Enforcement Day.
He shouted out his brother who is also a police officer. Pratt wrote, “Today on National Law Enforcement Day I want to give a shout to my brother Cully who’s been a cop for 15 years after serving in the Army for eight. Love you bro! Thank you,” the 39-year-old actor captioned his post.”
He concluded by sending a message to all police officers, “You are seen. You are appreciated. You are loved. Today we honor you. Thank You to all our Police Officers who keep our communities safe.”
Actors don’t do things like this. It’s considered taboo for liberal Hollywood elitists to do something like Pratt’s tribute.
For some reason, they have it in their minds that appreciating law enforcement is an endorsement of the 2nd Amendment.
Thankfully, Pratt’s career will go on and he’ll still be the movie star we all love despite this nonsensical attack on him.
