Tea Party protesters wear American flag burqas

American flag burqa

BoingBoing may have finally out-obscured themselves. They have found the most strange, abstruse purchasable good on the internet. Well, is it the TV Hat? The Snazzy Napper?

Nope. It's an American-flag-themed burqa which you can buy at Zarinas.com. Protesters wore them to a Tea Party rally yesterday (and no, I don't think they are practicing Muslims). What's creepier than an ironic Tea Party demonstration using American flag burqas is the fact that they're produced in the first place. Though, in 2010 it's pretty creepy to see anyone wearing American flag apparel at all.

Considering that half the country thinks our president is Muslim and that same half is in accordance with burning the Quran, it looks like Zarinas.com is barking up the wrong tree.
