Out of all types of cringe-worthy material, the "badass guy/girl" trope is one of the worst. Some people really feel the need to let the world know how much of a badass they are as they use guns/drugs/have tattoos/are anti-liberal or are just plain mean. However, such attempts at bad-assery are usually cringe-worthy rather than cool to all those around such people. Here, we made a list of all the laughable attempts at trying to appear cool and edgy. Prepare for some cringing, then scroll down below and leave a vote for those that made you laugh (or cringe).

Small minded people seem to allow their heads and hearts to fill up with symbolism to the point where it crowds out the substance. Symbols are easy to digest, flags easy to just wave about. Looks like this gentleman was able to squeeze in pledging his allegiance to the flag, which is fine, but was forced to stop right there when the rest of it wouldn’t fit. The part about allegiance to the Republic for which it stands ... with liberty and justice FOR ALL got squeezed out. It’s our nation, it’s flesh-and-blood citizens and our Constitution to which we pledge our commitment and devotion, not a flag decal on a t-shirt. Ugly drapes and hideous Christmas sweaters sometimes offend me, but never the United States flag.

These guys ALWAYS lie about crap like this. The flag is a symbol of this country. This country is being led by a 5-time draft dodger, 6-time bankrupt traitor who attacks the disabled and dead soldiers, tells outrageous lies even about stuff that's ON VIDEO, is such a wuss he NEVER owns up, can't admit the tiniest mistake because he's the biggest weenie on the world, and he appeals to other thin-skinned dewedz like this, who are terrified of criticism and reality. They wrap themselves up in the flag----not the Constitution, mind you----because they think by doing so, it'll protect them from big ole meanie liberals-----you know, the people who DON'T call the press "the enemy of the people." Dudes like this rant and scream about the flag, but never the Constitution. Ten bucks says this guy has stars-and-stripes underwear or manpris---in violation of the flag code-----and at least one Confederate flag that he swears is "heritege, not hate."

This tshirt is not offensive. The guy is even nice enough to offer help packing! But seriously, I support the message. I cannot imagine someone coming to my country and being "offended" by our flag. I wouldn't even think about feeling "offended" if I saw some country's flag while I am/I live in that country. And yes, if someone comes complaining that on our independence day we march with flags and it "hurts their feelings" or some other bs, I will personally offer help in packing. To be proud of your country and showing it does not mean to be racist. There must be the line people should not cross. If you feel it's right to burn the flag of the country that you are a guest in, you do not deserve to be there.

Name anyone who is offended by the flag though. People who are offended are just offended by the racists and republicans and such. If anything they are offended by conservatives who use the flag to spread hate. Not the same as hating the flag. Nobody hates the flag. Even if they burn it.

The irony is these people are obsessed with the constitutional right to form a militia to rise up against the government. Which I guess you could symbolize the flag as more than the government. But I doubt the government would see it that way. The south tried to leave and wasn’t allowed to and lost a war trying.

If you think or assume this man is racist for wearing this shirt without knowing him then YOU are the true racist.

so many of these comments are ridiculous. i like a ton of content on this site, but many "stories" are overtly FAR left and critical of any other point of view. this is nationalism, everyone should have some pride in their country. it doesn't say "go home" or mention any race or religion, it is saying if you hate this country or what the flag stands for, leave, find somewhere else to live. I think thats a great sentiment. no one should live somewhere they are shamed of or hate.
