Apparently NeoCon was a mid-West science fiction convention in the mid 1990's:

Well, I found one article which mentioned NeoCon's existence, and the link above. As near as I could tell from Google, it ran in Wichita from the late '80s until the early '90s, which predates the Web as a broad public medium.

According to The Internets, "Neocons" seem to be an aggressive, pro-military interventionist branch of American conservatives, yet also seem to be pro welfare state.

Yeah, I found that one, too, but it's not consistent with the T-Shirt design. I think my lead is correct, but hard to substantiate without doing some old-fashioned research (actual paper records!) in Kansas.
