Say it with me: “I am not a terrorist”
I met the person who is responsible for the impetus of this slogan / shirt / anti-logo last Thursday in front of the White House when I was doing sound for the Declaration of Peace press conference.
When he was introduced to me I was like, “You look familiar….” and after a few minutes of side talk, “Were you in the GNN movie Battle Ground?” and he smiled. I then quoted him from the end of the movie where he mentions giving the Kabob a chance. He laughed and said, “You have a good memory” and I smiled and thanked him for showing me the aftermath of Depleted Uranium.
Two weeks ago Megan wore this shirt to ESL and while I had never heard of the story behind it, I got a royal hoot out of the social commentary. She sent me the link, and I bought it last Thursday morning hours before meeting him! It arrived yesterday just in time for the start of some cartographic event.
The only other arabic text at North, South, East, Westminster was my name.
