Outrage: Obama Mask Listed As Terrorist

The Los Angeles Times has had a rather large litter of kittens over the breathtaking scoop that Amazon had somehow listed an Obama Halloween mask under “terrorist”:

Amazon.com listing had Barack Obama Halloween mask under ‘terrorist’

Andrew Malcolm

October 28, 2008

You know that argument the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign has been relentlessly making that Barack Obama “pals” around with terrorists such as ’60s ex-radical William Ayers?

And they say this reflects on his poor judgment because of other associates such as Rev. Jeremiah Wright and newly-convicted Tony Rezko?

Anyway, a listing on Amazon.com, one of the largest and most successful online merchandisers in the world, seemed to come down even beyond the Republicans’ side — for a while anyway. With Halloween just days away, they’re making a bundle off a $49.95 Barack Obama mask.

Which was displayed on the “terrorist costume” page.

You read that right!

(UPDATE: Amazon’s listing seems to have caught itself and deleted the Obama mask from the terrorist page. However, before that happened, The Ticket captured a photo. See below.)

Click on the Read more line below and see the online display….

…picture for yourself. There’s the Democrats’ presidential candidate smiling right under the headline “Terrorist Costume.”

Thankfully, for the good of our country and the reputation of terrorists everywhere, Amazon has righted this dreadful wrong.

(Though, judging by the comments at the LA Times site, they will never be forgiven by thousands of their sensitive customers.)

It is a bit of selective outrage, though.

For if you click on the “terrorist” link under “related sources” on the very page that the LA Times cites as having once displayed this disgraceful item, you can still find T-shirts such as these:

Which all feature this wonderful “artwork”:

Yes, those are images of our elected representatives, President Bush and Vice President Cheney.

And there is plenty more of the same:

Yet somehow this didn’t trigger any outrage from the Los Angeles Times.

Why is that?

And speaking of media bias, it’s odd but we didn’t “know” that the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign has been “relentlessly” claiming Barack Obama “pals” around with terrorists. We thought it got mentioned exactly once. Though we wish it would be mentioned more.

Heck, we didn’t even realize that Reverend Wright and Tony Rezko were merely Obama “associates.”

The LA Times is so helpful.

    I was going to start with the fact that Amazon.com sells poetry by a convicted pediphile – and there is no outrage – but alas that t-shirt took the wind out of my sails.

    Such is with the Bush assassination ‘chic’ – what goes on in the Left is simply free speech – what goes on in the Right is racist, hate speech, violence and intolerance.

    Once again, let us mangle (such as the whinner Singer defending the petition to defend Ayers/Obama relationship – that those who wrote him hate emails – are the terrorists – Ayers just practiced Civil Rights and Anti-War protesting with ‘enthusiaism’) the deifinition of words and dumb down America just a little bit more. Each. Day. Until it will vote for an empty, socialist suit.

    Why the outrage? It seems a rather fitting categorization to me, I would just add “Economic”

  5. David says:

    Well if “terrorist” won’t work for a heading how about we file the Obama mask under one of these:
    Disney Characters–Dumbo
    Socialist Revolutionaries (Alinsky…Chavez… Che Guevara…)
    Puppets — right before Pinocchio
    Things that are empty

    Hmm, no wonder Amazon had such a hard time filing this one.

  6. The L.A. Times.

    Yup. Rock dropping circulation coupled with anemic earnings and decimating layoffs will make a leftist rag giddy like that….

    Hey. How ’bout them Syrians being such crappy neighbors?

    Well, dozens, anyway…
