Save a Child, Kill a Muslim Sticker (Bumper) > US Politics Evil Shop #3 | CafePress

Save a Child, Kill a Muslim Sticker (Bumper) > US Politics Evil Shop #3 | CafePress

Who doesn't want a bumper sticker, T-shirt, hooded sweatshirt, or coffee mug proudly proclaiming: "SAVE A CHILD, KILL A MUSLIM extremist"?

Get 'em while they're hot, folks! While supplies last!

So how did I happen upon this store? Well, as a matter of fact, I was shopping for a W'04 bumper sticker. Yes, it's true. I intend to get one and place it upside-down. (Problem is, just the "W" sticker, well, it'll just look like an "M"--might just be confusing . . .) Eventually I decided not to give any money to those folks, and instead just got a few that say "Support Our Troops: Impeach Bush" and the "NO W" (W with a slash through it) ones.

Anyway, I've seen some pretty goddamned stupid anti-Bush stuff, I must admit. Really, really lame and stupid. But not until I shopped in the Right Wing section did I encounter levels of depravity, stupidity, and vile hatred such as the above.

(The word "extremist" tacked on at the end, in small letters I might add, does not exonerate the message. In case there's any doubt, just replace "Muslim" with "Jew" or "Christian" and see how it sounds.)

So. Because I'm such a masochist, I ended up following a little Right-Wing rabbit hole, and it really gets disturbing. People talk about how our country is so "polarized" and how that's not good; but after today I fell like our country might very well be imploding.

Some examples:

"American Jingoist
jin*go*ism: Extreme nationalism characterized especially by a belligerent foreign policy; chauvinistic patriotism.

Yeah, that's me--unabashedly!"

"Worth Fighting For: God, Country, Your Conservative Babe, and your Freedom" (you gotta click and see the picture this refers to)

"Support Terrorism: Vote Kerry in '04"

"Teresa Heinz Kerry: Communist, Billionaire, KGB General and Sleeper Agent. Teresa and Her Brainwashed and Whipped Puppet John Kerry are about to take over."

"John Kerry has been turned into a Communist Puppet by his KGB Sex Agent wife Teresa. Warn you friends and neighbors the Commies are Comming! Anti-Kerry, Pro-Bush, Politics, Election, Traitor."
