The Left are coming unhinged.
At a Labor Day event, Teamsters Union chief Jimmy Hoffa Jr. threatened fellow Americans — TEA Partiers — with “war” and called on his union minions to “take these sons of bitches out.” Hoffa said this right in the presence of the President of the United States, and Obama did and said nothing.
Now, there’s a new video game that encourages players to “mow down conservatives.”
Elizabeth Flock reports for the Washington Post, Sept. 7, 2011, that a new video game, “Tea Party Zombies Must Die,” released by advertising company StarvingEyes Advergaming, encourages players to mow down conservative commentators, political figures and tea partiers, including Sarah Palin, Bill O’Reilly, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Glenn Beck, and the Koch Brothers.
The graphic game puts tea partiers in Ku Klux Klan robes, places Fox commentators in what’s left of a post-apocalyptic office, and asks players to “grab your weapons and bash their rotten brains to bits!”
Jason Oda, head of StarvingEyes, told MRCtv: “The game was just a personal project. I am not worried about it effecting [sic] business.”
Personal or not, Oda’s project has already sparked quite the reaction. Howard Kurtz called the game “sickening.” MRCtv listed out the many reasons the game was “disturbing.”
The National Review has sarcastically noted that the best part about the game is that it’s not just fun, but “educational”: “Between levels we get informative tidbits about how Obamacare lowers the deficit, and how most Republicans think the president is a Muslim. There are lessons to be learned from dying in the game, too, which happens if you don’t get health insurance, and after which you are told: ‘there’s no such thing as God.’”
We’re not giving you the evil video game’s website. You can look it up yourself on the web.
They want war? Let’s give them war!

This is the E-mail I sent to UPS. Feel free to use!
I’m writing you to object to UPS’s advertising company, StarvingEyes Advergaming’s release of the new video game, “Tea Party Zombies Must Die,” which encourages players to mow down conservative commentators, political figures and Tea Partiers. You should know that I am boycotting UPS until StarvingEyes withdraws the video game.
This afternoon, Fellowship of the Minds received an e-mail from Ranjitsinh Mahida, who claims he’s the Litigation & Intellectual Property Counsel for A+E Networks. The latter owns the History Channel.
Mr. Mahida expresses shock and disapproval about the “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” video game. He denies that History Channel is a client of StarvingEyes and says he’s contacted the advertising company to ask that “History Channel” be removed from StarvingEyes’ website as its client. Mr. Mahida requests that FOTM also remove History Channel from this post.
So I went on StarvingEyes’ website, at around 4:45 pm, west coast time, but History Channel is still listed as a client. So I politely wrote back to Mr. Mahida, informing him that as long as History Channel remains listed as a client on StarvingEyes’ website, History Channel will remain on this post.
About 1½ hours later, I looked at StarvingEyes’ website again. The entire vertical column of Clients — including History Channel — has vanished from the site. I have, therefore, deleted History Channel from this post.
I hope History Channel is taking Jason Oda and StarvingEyes to court with a humongous lawsuit up their wazoo.
All this happened only because so many FOTM readers contacted History Channel to express their outrage. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
A big h/t to my best cyberbud and FOTM’s co-founder Steve.
