Save the Outrage. And the Tibetans. Or Something Like That.
Here is the comment I posted on the great logo scandal.
The larger circle is the outer atmosphere and it contains our planet (and that would be the negative space on the inside). The big red swoosh is symbolic of hitting threats over the horizon.
It’s more contemporary than the old logo and it’s more visually interesting. I think someone should have noticed that it could be mistaken for something else and should have asked for redesign.
But that doesn’t mean it’s part of some larger plot.
Save the outrage for something real.
Don’t know what the great logo scandal is? Check it out here.
Look, I love me some Andrew Breitbart, but Frank Gaffney has put something on Breitbart’s Big Government site that looks pretty looney to me. Don’t let the site go down the Ron Paul road to craziness.
In other words, don’t let the crazy be the enemy of the good.
There is precisely no reason to jump on this particular bandwagon. Questionable design choices do not equal plots to spread Islamic symbols to America through obscure military logos.
