I’m just going to go ahead and assume Eagle’s Nest is referencing Hitler’s mountain retreat. Seems like a safe assumption given the circumstances
Dare eagles. Dare castle.
As of 2018 half of all AIDS diagnoses in Wyoming stemmed from intravenous drug use, not male-male sexual contact. I wonder how many patrons of that seedy biker bar have shot something into their arms at one time or another.
Not really surprised that a bar called the Eagle’s Nest (a Nazi retreat in the mountains) in Wyoming is full of terrible people. I can’t imagine they don’t have some sort of Nazi adjacent shirts to wear. (Not all places evoking eagles are bad, but with context clues, one can conclude some are.)
Counter point to that shirt:
Not surprising. Wyoming is where Matthew Shepard was tortured and left to die, tied to a fence alone in some forsaken prairie. My question is when does this move from protected free speech to unprotected true threats?
Booth across the street wirh T-Shirts: “We have a solution against locations instigating hatecrime, burn them to the ground!” and wait till they try suing or some other complaining.
I’m sure the fact they’re indirectly named for a Nazi outpost is nothing but sheer coincidence…
Came here with one thought in mind: arson might not be a complete or direct solution, but I also can’t imagine owners of a biker bar abide the thought of paying insurance premiums.
I’m not suggesting you don’t raze it to the ground, I’m just saying that all those embers would probably make a nice barbecue.
Good from bad, you know?
considering the wording on the shirt, i’m wondering if they’ve been selling them consistently since the 1980s, and only now did someone find out and call it out.
So you’re saying it’s even worse than the obvious horrorshow this is?
pretty much, yeah. i mean, it’s WYOMING.
Time for me to make a bunch of “Here in Wyoming, we have a cure for homophobes: we burn their bar down” t-shirts, gather some friends and go on a road trip. I’m sure the bar owners would be really good humored about it. They’re no “snowflakes” who get upset at little things like direct threats, I’m sure.
I was wondering the same thing - this very much feels like some homophobia imported straight (so to speak) from the '80s. (Or '90s, because they’re a bit backwards there.)
They also just say the place sold the t-shirts. I’m wondering who actually made them, and if anyone else was selling them.
oh, that’s a good point. ugh, i wonder!
With those angles, it’d light up like a match stick.
It’s like an idiot built a house after reading the Wikipedia entry for ‘buildings’.
These are definitely the signs to look out for.
I commend you both on your sleuthing.
Then the punishment is built in.
