MAGA hats I think. Maybe 'WWJD' though.

The MAGA slogan-hats., definitely not WWJD....fascists haven't misappropriated that yet.

Yeah, full-on Godwins law with the MAGA to swatstika.

But emphasis on it is the swatstika "Of Our Time." Our time has a grifter reality TV show loser and his family as king of the world.

Our Time blends pop culture/social media and the associated look-at-me-attention-whoring, with it's racist/fascist brand of nationalism.

Our time doesn't have gas chambers and a WW, not diminish the utter darkness of that time.....but we have a MAGAs mowing people down with their cars, beating up media ad naseum , ICE etc etc

Thought I was stating an obvious.

I was pretty sure you were referring to MAGA hats, and that would make much more sense than "WWJD?". But having the swastika comment after a couple of WWJD posts (including yours) made me a little unsure about what you were referring to.

Our time has concentration camps, so gas chambers aren't too far away.
