The Vicious Left: CafePress Offered "Kill Bush" Shirts

Just a bit of harmless "protected political speech," as the Ninth Fucking Circuit instructs us.

Michelle Malkin has a pic of the "Kill Bush" t-shirt, as well as other fine products available from the Homicidal Left.

And she links to Powerline, featuring an article on a pro-assassination "art" exhibit.

A caveat: I am searching for this stuff myself, to confirm that Cafe Press actually offered this crap. I have not yet been able to find it. The pop-up says the offering was pulled and is no longer available. I guess I'd like to see a cached page of it.

I'm running with it, though, not quite nailed down and solid, because I pretty much trust Malkin.

I know a lot of bloggers sell merch through Cafe Press, and I wouldn't want to depress their sales. But... if this is real, there should be a permanent boycott against Cafe Press by all people -- not just conservatives -- who believe that political differences should be solved by political processes, rather than a lunatic's rifle.

I suppose Cafe Press has a defense -- they don't check to see what's being offered on their site before it goes up, and they do seem to have pulled it. I'd like a full explanation and apology, though.

Confirmed: By commenters, who saw this yesterday. Drudge linked and Limbaugh mentioned. That's enough.

Cafe Press had better issue a grovelling apology and a promise to patrol its political material much more carefully or I swear we will drive these bastards out of business within a month.

Self-Serving Mercenary Greed Update: Why not protest Cafe Press by buying a snazzy t-shirt from a guy who takes a firm position against political violence?

Uhhh... yeah, I know, the Mencken quote. Metaphor, you retards.

Remember... the ordering period may be closed at any moment.

EDIT: I'm just linking Michelle Malkin right now for the t-shirt. I've been told that Cafe Press likes suing bloggers right off INTERNET.

Sorry to be a pussy, but I don't feel like dealing with it. Michelle's got juice; she can take these guys on.
