Right-Wing Gifts: Obama Death Threats on T-Shirts, Bumper Stickers

December 14, 2009

(ChattahBox)—The unhinged rhetoric of conservative right-wingers, has become increasingly violent in tone, encouraging the death of the President of the United States, or using “imprecatory prayer,” by praying for harm to come to President Obama and his family. Last month we saw the line of so called, Psalm 109 products, which invoked the Bible to pray for the death of Obama. Many online retailers removed the Psalm 109 merchandise, after receiving criticism, including the site Zazzle.

Now, Zazzle is offering a new line of extremist anti-Obama products, threatening the life of our President, just in time for Christmas. Some of the bumper stickers are riddled with bullet holes and others depict racist imagery. But the new line of products all have one common theme: They want President Obama to suffer a violent death.

The Obama death threats merchandise comes in T-shirts for both men and women and even for a right-wing dog. There are also bumper stickers and mouse pads. One line depicts bullet holes with the phrase: ” Send Barack Obama shooting with Cheney.” Another group wants to see Obama aborted.

And two bumper stickers stood out for their shocking racist, violent imagery and rhetoric. One shows an image of Obama boiling in a giant pot on top of a bonfire saying: “Cannibals are starving in Africa, Please send Obama to help.” And another bumper sticker shows a wheelbarrow holding a skull that is meant to be Obama’s with the message: “Nobody Knows I hate Obama except the Canvassers in the Yard.”

One bumper sticker depicts Obama adrift in a raft in the middle of the ocean saying: “Send Obama on a Cruise.”

The violent merchandise is produced by a member of Zazzle named, NOBAMAMAN. “This online anti Obama T-Shirt store will be updated on a regular basis with designs like Obama sucks,dope Obama, I hate Obama,f*ck Obama designs and other right wing funny anti-Obama bumper stickers,” writes NOBAMAMAN.

The maker of the Obama death threats merchandise also promises to provide right-wing customers who want to see our President assassinated, with a ready supply of anti-Obama bumper stickers:

“We’ve right wing anti Obama badges,humorous anti Obama T shirts to show off your displeasure in Obama’s socialist [sic] government.If you’re right wing and see Obama as a communist [sic] or you want to impeach Barack Obama then our anti Obama bumper stickers will sit nicely on your right wing,anti liberals [sic] bumper.”

Merchandise calling for the violent death of a sitting president is beyond the pale.

    Well, I guess the Bush haters had their time. Now the Obama haters have their time. Frankly, I see little difference in the rhetoric, only the subject. None of this should be surprising to anyone given how load of virulent the left was towards Bush.
