Posted on 04/13/2005 11:52:23 PM PDT by ajolympian2004
Blogs get results: The "Kill Bush" products first reported here and publicized on scores of blogs big and small, have been removed.
Here's the announcement from CafePress:
The "Kill Bush" products have been removed from CafePress.com. They were created by individuals across the globe, as are the more than 8 million products available on CafePress.com, a diverse network of more than one million shops.
Hate related materials are in violation of our terms of service and are prohibited from being sold through CafePress.com. CafePress.com is an automated service, and as such, products are reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure that merchandise that is in violation of our terms of service is removed from our site.
Good on them, but they've still got their work cut out for them.
Yesterday, Drudge linked to a nasty anti-Tom Delay t-shirt being hawked at Cafe Press. The shirt urged the GOP congressman to commit suicide. Sold by artist Christopher Godwin, the product has now been removed (though you can still see it on Cafe Press's search engine complete with the caption "We can dream, can't we?").
Not to worry. There are plenty of other hate-filled, liberal knick-knacks and apparel items still on sale.
Like this "Kill Bush" magnet depicting the president holding a gun to his head with the caption "End Terrorism Now:"
Or this bright yellow "Kill Bush" t-shirt splattered with blood:
Or this handy "Kill Bush" messenger bag with a macho pic of John Kerry:
And before the "everybody does it" apologists pooh-pooh this lunatic anti-Bush merchandise: There's tasteless political paraphernalia on both sides of the aisle, but I've already searched and there are currently no "Kill Kerry" products, blood-spattered or otherwise, being sold at Cafe Press.
"Oh, but it's all in good fun," the libs will shrug. Yeah, just like the Guardian's call last fall for someone to kill Bush. Just like the wave of campus attacks on conservatives. Just like the vicious anti-troops, anti-Bush slogans: "We Support Our Troops, When They Shoot their Officers" and "Bush is the disease. Death is the cure."
"Where's your sense of humor?" the libs will ask.
Where's their decency? Their sanity?
Welcome to the sick world of the pro-assassination Left.
Update: 4/14. CafePress has yanked the "Kill Bush" products.
Words fail me
I have never in all my day ever seen such hate
So don't direct as much anger at CafePress than at the clown who set up their storefront within. CafePress needs to do a better job of policing its own lest their brand suffer. But the real perp isn't getting much mention.
Agreed. martin_fierro has FReeper Motorcycle Hooligan T-shirts listed there.
"And yes, the liberal equivalent card deck showed up soon thereafter."
oooohhhh, I am DYING to hear what this was like.....
BTW, good point. This sounds like eBay - huge site w/millions of items. Hard for them to keep track of all of it. Happened on eBay in fact a few weeks ago - some jackass had some tube advertised as "Terri's Tube" and a "funny" story that he took it out of a trash can outside the hospice or such. Got around FR real fast - then eBay was notified (I did that) and the auction pulled. Seller was so unhappy - all this criticism. I got a "screw you" e-mail back from him for personally writing him telling how rude and sick it was to joke about things like that.
