I was traveling in China in January and saw these t-shirts at a tourist stall in Yangshuo.  In this case, the market certainly wasn't tea party people.  More likely, the vendors had hyper-ironic, European hipsters or young Chinese people in mind.  I did, though, think how terrifyingly stupid it would be to see someone on the right make this comparison in the United States.
