Target Spain T-Shirt: Shirt Features Fascist Flag

By Jamie Pert - Jun 15, 2010

With the FIFA World Cup now underway, and Vuvuzela’s slowly taking over the world, it seems that the annoying bee horn is not the only thing that has received complaints, as Target have pulled a T-Shirt which features a fascist flag on it’s front.

The t-shirt in question, was being sold at Target until they realized that it was related to General Francisco Franco, a man controversially remembered for being behind the army’s victory in the Spanish Civil War, and with it, executing hundreds and thousands of political enemies.

‘One Great and One Free’ is the slogan, and his flag that he pioneered in Spain, 1978 and is now banned in the country due to the slaying of many innocent people and abuse of basic human rights.

Target, the chain who have since pulled the product from stores say that “the shirt is not a Target brand, but is exclusive to the store.” Target have also stated that they will be accepting the shirts back and a full refund will be given.

However, you can almost bet your life that they will appear on eBay as a collectors item soon.

    Dear consumers: The Homestead
    Good luck, getting your wife to wear an apron while doing housework or cooking or dishes. But thee idea with style, like your basic white chef's garb, for the man (barbecuing) or the woman(baking), is going to save your nice clothing while working polishing the furniture or changing the oil in the car. I think you understand this is "green" common sense. That's right folk, this is a tough sell, but I'm trying to bring back the apron and thee overalls. Meditate on the concept and the savings, and explaining embarassing butter stains on your Bebe hoodie or your Ralph Lauren Polo shirt. We can save a lot on wear and tear if we embrace the concept, with grace and finesse. That preserves our finery and even comes into vogue, like our elders had in days of wisdom. Designer and durable aprons and overalls. Saving the day at a cook-out or party event. Try to keep an open mind in "green" recession proofing your precious lives.
