With its classic propaganda styling, you could be forgiven for thinking this t-shirt was a Shepard Fairey design. It’s actually for sale on the website of a Ukrainian clothing line—yes, that’s organic cotton, and yes that’s Il Duce. It seems like we’re still in Shepard Fairey territory but the irony is lacking. The far right in Ukraine have taken up Mussolini as a symbol of Neo-fascism. Nice comeback for a guy who went out like this.
The prominent text ХУНТА БУДЕ roughly translates to “We Want a Junta!” as in military rule. It’s become far right rallying cry. I can see how some might see a military dictatorship as preferable to rule by Russia, but make no mistake, these are fascists using classic fascist tactics, who believe in a classic fascist doctrine, e.g., Jews are as much a problem as the Russians, and they often have the support of the Ukrainian nationalist forces.

If you start from the other end and just do a Google search for “Mussolini t-shirt” you’ll get plenty of hits. Redbubble, Cafe Press, both have a selection, then there are European sites with white power paraphernalia. There’s even a Mussolini.net where you can buy pretty much anything you can think of with his likeness on it—from a billy club to a throw pillow, sugar packets, pasta in the shape of the fasces—the fascist symbol, they even have a selection of mussolini themed wine and beer. You can find vintage Mussolini t-shirts on Etsy. I remember this one hanging in a tourist shop in New York’s Little Italy at the tail end of the 80’s.
Interestingly, if you Google Hitler t-shirt what you get is almost all anti- or ironic, jokey hitler references.
