More Right Wing Ignorance & Threats

Zazzle has removed some of the offending designs.

I am seriously considering canceling my account with Zazzle. It is fast becoming a cesspool of hate and violence. Sometimes the bad guys win. This seems to be one of those times. I can not fight them alone. I’m almost ready to let the bad guys have Zazzle and Zazzle will gain a reputation as the source for Right Wing racist, violent and hateful material.

These products promote shooting President Obama. Former Vice President Dick Cheney shot his friend Harry Whittington in the face during a hunting trip in 2006. This is a call for and promotion of violence against the President.

Used in this context, the suggestion is that cannibals live in Africa and serves as cultural libel. Cultural libel is often employed by one group to demonstrate their self proclaimed cultural superiority to another group. Cannibalism has occurred among indigenous peoples throughout much of central and western Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Melanesia, Sumatra, New Guinea, Polynesia, and South America. The creator of this bit of propaganda recommends sending President Obama to Africa which I interpret as a reference to the abolitionist movement to return freed Slaves to Africa.

Aborting Obama seems to be acceptable as well.
A call to “abort” the life of President Obama is a call to murder him. I wonder if these are the same people who are anti- choice pro- life? It would sure seem so. It is just a matter of time before an insane Right Wing extremist picks up a gun and attempts to “abort” our President.  Remember Dr. George Tiller?

The Department of Homeland Security must soon act to classify Right Wing Extremism as terrorism and deal with the terrorists as such. Free speech was never intended to go so far as to allow one group to terrorize another group with intimidation by threats of violence. No one should have the right to call for the murder of another.
