This provocative T-shirt speaks the crude truth

| »

Again, the message is overly simplistic as is the norm for these things, but the underlying point – that at least a large part of the sudden, beyond hysterical opposition against President Obama from the Right (especially in light of the same folks’ silence regarding the repeated desecration ex-President Bush reaped upon the Constitution) is primarily due to plain bigotry – is undeniable.

T-shirt with Bush portrait: “I screwed you all / But thanks for blaming it on the Black guy”

Oh, Black people. They’re the new Jews. (Or was it immigrants? Or Muslims? Or women? Or liberals? Or … whoever else the Right loves to rage against with the tenacity of impotent bulldogs?)
