Zazzle, Home of the "Don't Renig in 2012" Design, Says "No" to Some ANTI-Racist Designs
We all are familiar with Zazzle, right? One of those places where you can set up a nice little store and sell your customized t-shirts, bumper stickers, keychains, hats, etc...
Heck, even I have a Zazzle store. I thought they had learned their lesson when they pulled THIS design from their store cyber-shelves.
Ha ha ha! Get it? Re-NIG! Ha ha ha! Obama is one of them. Get it? So, don't vote for Obama in 2012 because that means you'll "RE-NIG!" Ha ha ha!
I wrote a column about this very tee-shirt back in September 19, 2010.
This t-shirt was designed by this funny, funny person called “XUBERALLES” (Iget the “uber alles” part? It’s part of the frequently quoted Nazi slogan Deutschland Uber Alles, or “Germany Over Everyone.” I can only guess that the “X” is the archaic reference for Jesus or the old time wrestler, Dr. X.) who sells ALL MANNER of funny, funny, right wing bullshit on his own little shop at Zazzle. Little wanted posters for Obama, wanted posters for Obama, Pelosi and Reid, little posters that say he will kill you if you try to take his guns… you know, the standard right wing paranoid crap.
Well, Zazzle got the message and pulled the shirt and the design from its lineup.
I figured that since Zazzle had learned its lesson about racism, it might be a good place to sell stuff that was ANTI-racist. I'd sell my little satirical political designs and donate 50% of my profits to the National Parkinson Foundation. (They get 100% of the profits from my PD folder... so I guess it's a good thing Zazzle isn't prejudiced against neurological disorders.)
Imagine my surprise when I received e-mails telling me that THESE designs had been pulled from my Zazzle store...
A design lampooning so-called "Christian Charity."
