There’s a funny, funny racist t-shirt being sold on the online shop Zazzle (which would probably let you sell a t-shirt with a picture of the beheading of a child on it as long as they got a cut of the profits) that has a funny, funny, racist message on it.
Get it? Get it? Huh?
See? Funny, funny racism!
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.
Now, in its proper context, “don’t renig” (actually, the word is “renege”) would be a call to vote FOR Obama in 2012, since “renigging” (or “reneging,” if these brutal idiots actually cared about proper spelling,) would require overturning the progress being made by this administration. But, see, the funny part here is that President Obama IS a nig… well, he’s one of THEM! A dark-skinned man who probably isn’t even an American and has no business whatsoever being elected by a large majority of free-voting Americans in one of things we do every four years, called freely electing a president of the United States of America.
By wearing that t-shirt, you can say any racist thing you want to say, but it won’t be racist because you say right there on the t-shirt that you’re NOT a racist, therefore the racist thing you said can not be considered racist. Get it?
And he’s not violent, although he sells t-shirts and posters that say you’d better bring YOUR gun if you’re gonna try to take HIS! And he sells “Wanted Posters” for Obama, “Wanted Posters” for Obama, Pelosi and Reid.
He sells baby clothes that say “Liberals Hate Me.”
Isn’t that just DARLING! See? We’re LIBERALS, so every baby that is born and is not sacrificed to our sacrament of abortion is an AFFRONT to all liberals EVERYWHERE!
Now, doesn’t it all make sense?
XUBERALLES sells this shit on his own Zazzle store website, called “The Right Stuff,” which has images of brave troops at Iwo Jima, Ronald Reagan, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.
And he gets stuff wrong. He attributes the statement, “The government that governs best, governs least” to Jefferson, when it was actually from an essay by Henry David Thoreau paraphrasing the motto of a contemporary magazine.
But XUBERALLES knows that the people who BUY his excrement aren’t SMART enough to check the veracity of whatever bubbles and flows from his online anus. XUBERALLES calls Obama a “lying socialist,” then he must be a lying socialist! He sells ANOTHER Jefferson quote, “A government big enough to supply you with everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything you have…” that Jefferson NEVER SAID according to the official Jefferson website .
The following statement, or variations thereof, is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson :
“A government big enough to supply you with everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have….”
We have never found such a statement in Jefferson’s writings. As far as we know, this statement actually originates with Gerald R. Ford, who said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have,” in an address to a joint session of Congress on August 12, 1974.
But a lie, when it’s useful to FOOL STUPID PEOPLE, is a lie worth TELLING, is it not?
There’s another one on a t-shirt XUBERALLES sells.
Status: We have not found any evidence that Thomas Jefferson said or wrote, “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny,” or any of its listed variations.
Comments: One source attributes this quotation to Thomas Jefferson in The Federalist.The Federalist, however, was the work of Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison; it also does not contain the text of this quotation. This quotation is vaguely similar to Jefferson’s comment in an 1825 letter to William Short: “Some are whigs, liberals, democrats, call them what you please. Others are tories, serviles, aristocrats, &c. The latter fear the people, and wish to transfer all power to the higher classes of society; the former consider the people as the safest depository of power in the last resort; they cherish them therefore, and wish to leave in them all the powers to the exercise of which they are competent.” To date however, the most likely source of this quotation appears to be a series of debates on socialism published in 1914, in which John Basil Barnhill said, “Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.”
Bottom line, you could print out an archaic sounding quote, say it came from Thomas Jefferson, and these idiots will believe it.
“Those who would choose a repast of spaghetti with a thick sauce of tomato and meat over the simple baked potato (without sour cream or all the fixings) would water the tree of liberty with their own urine.”
Thomas Jefferson in a letter to the Virginia Legislature, 1778
See how easy it is?
Quite the little scam XUBERALLES has going on here. And shame on Zazzle for letting him profit on lies and fomenting violence and racism.
