With all the clout they carry, it seems surprising at first that more commercial entities (stores, corporations) don’t overtly display their political beliefs. I mean, if you had a lot of money and were buying billboards and magazine ad space, wouldn’t you use the opportunity with the audience to try and make a point?
It means more to most corporations to get hands on max money than to make a point, and that means being politically neutral. “Sure, I hate your politics. I’ll take your money anyway.” That’s why Howie’s clothing is so refreshing – nicely designed*, happily political, and not afraid to sell you something in the middle of the message.
*If you’re not Flash-averse, but that’s a topic for another day.
