    I had to go downtown to pay a tax bill today. Passing about a dozen or so protesters, I was called a racist and erion for wearing this !!

    I also had some big black work type boots on but...they’re for work. They told me that it wasn’t the words but the image is offensive. I only yelled back and told them to get a job. The world has gone officially nuts.

    Hi, @TIMB
    Maybe they were unaware of the awesome guitar playing of Dave Gilmour ?

    I am trying to stay near home cause I have panic challenges, and am very self-consious/fearful often anyway.

    It truly has....It makes isolation a pleasure really. Got all I need here and plenty of lead idiot repellent to keep it.

    Good idea. I usually don’t venture to far from home either these days but I just don’t understand anything anymore.

    I get that sucks but you do understand that the marching hammers were the symbol of the fictional neo **** group in the wall and were purposely designed to look like the swastika and was later adopted and still used by the white supremacy group The Hammerskins based in TX and by many white power rock groups for album art. Many people only see that and do not know the connection to Pink Floyd.

    The imagery was always intended to make people think of swastikas. Because Roger Waters hates swastikas and everything they stand for.

    Yeah many folks today, especially younger ones who are out protesting do not know of any other use of the hammers except by the Hammerskins. Most probably don’t even know who Floyd is. By the way, which ones pink?:D
