Desperate to ignite another racial witch hunt, deranged liberals are criticizing “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt for wearing a shirt with the emblem of a Gadsden Flag and the iconic American revolutionary phrase, “Don’t Tread on Me.”
Hunter Harris, a staff writer for Vulture, drew attention to Pratt’s choice of a t-shirt in a Twitter post, which stirred up the digital lynch mob.

A Yahoo News article referred to Pratt’s choice of t-shirt as “white supremacist” citing how “over the years the flag has been adopted by Far Right political groups like the Tea Party.” They also mentioned the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s assessment that the insignia “sometimes interpreted to convey racially-tinged messages in some contexts.”
This hyperbolic article caused more angry liberals to seize upon his shirt as a reason to criticize Pratt, who is one of the few Hollywood celebrities with the courage to express his deep connection to Christianity and traditional values.

I like him, but all these small things about his politics makes me wonder when he’ll say something transphobic, tank his career, and do the full heel-turn into a Fox commentator https://t.co/Emfzd02GmK

I know Chris Pratt is a god-fearing, gun-toting Republican, so perhaps him wearing a white supremacist T-Shirt in public isn’t totally surprising.

Pratt is one of the few Hollywood celebrities willing to go public about their devout Christian beliefs. He got married to Katherine Schwarzenegger last month, and the couple attributes their strong bond to Jesus Christ.
“I would not be here with the ease and grace I have in my heart without my lord and savior, Jesus Christ,” Pratt said in 2017 at the Teen Choice Awards.
He also attributes the good health of his son, Jack, who was born with serious complications five months early, to his faith in Christ.
“We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot,” Pratt said of his son’s health problems. “It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it.”
Pratt’s strong faith has put a target on his back in a godless entertainment industry hostile to Christian values. He was previously attacked by washed up actress and LGBT activist Ellen Page for attending a Christian church that offended her hypersensitive beliefs as a professional victim.
Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too? https://t.co/meg8m69FeF

Despite the anger from a handful of crazed liberals, Pratt’s stardom continues to soar as he plans to film in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 next year. His other signature franchise, Jurassic World, is set to release the third edition of the series in 2021.
