So I Guess All These Zombie Depictions Are Bad, Too?Catch-All

RPV decided to condemn the Loudoun GOP’s collection of Democratic zombie pictures after the Washington Post (friend to conservatives everywhere) decided to score some cheap hits courtesy of Too Conservative (equal friend to conservatives everywhere).

So I guess the Loudoun GOP taking a cue from liberal portrayals of George Bush as a zombie was a bad idea, eh?

Tried to find when the Washington Post decided to equally condemn such depictions of President Bush… and didn’t have much luck.  Gee — wonder why that is?

People need to grow up and lighten up — ASAP.

UPDATE:  Oh, and just in case you’re truly offended about images depicting public figures being shot, may I remind you of this fun little game?

Double standards.  Without ‘em, the liberals wouldn’t have any standards at all…

UPDATE x2:  Just to give you a bit of background when liberals did this to conservatives, let’s see how this particular media outlet characterized the reaction to “Tea Party Zombies Must Die”:

Manufactured outrage was turned up in unison yesterday evening as the right wing of the Internet became aware of the existence of an online video game called Tea Party Zombies Must Die.

Nice….

UPDATE x3:  Need some screenshots before they go away?  The Daily Caller has ‘em.

UPDATE x4:  …and just because people with common sense are asking “what picture?” I did a handy-dandy little Google search and came across the offending pic:

Does that look like a bullet hole to you?

Or just your typical zombie sloughing off flesh?

Check the rest of them out here.  Don’t worry… there’s Obama zombies, McCain zombies, zombies of people eating limbs, babies, etc.  Meanwhile, folks at Virginia Virtucon and NOVA Common Sense are, well… flipping out over… you know… that picture up top.

…that’s been around for the past three years or so…

…alongside President Bush zombie pictures for eight years before that…

I’m not even saying I like these pictures, or condone them.  Heck — I think it’s a stupid frickin’ meme to take every public figure and turn them into a zombie.  The whole zombie craze — games, books, comics, blah blah blah… just a sign of the downfall of American culture.  Pick up a real damn book, please.

That having been said — it still doesn’t excuse the manufactured controversy when Rethugs… er, Republicans are made to look like this routinely by the left.

    Hey Shaun, most of those depictions didn’t have bullet holes in their foreheads.

    Don’t worry, however, while RPV, McDonnell and Cuccinelli have all condemned this, the LCRC issued a non-apology apology that says basically what you say, so your side is covered.

    You’re right — most of those depictions had bleeding sores, sawed off limbs, and bloody teeth and such.

    But hey — when you’re on the same side as the WaPo, what does it matter, right?

    You would hope holes in the head would be off limits after Giffords. The WaPo endorsed some NoVA Republicans – what should those candidates have done about it? Went down and protested the endorsements? I wrote about it and the Post picked up on it. Nothing I can do about that. This was a ridiculously stupid move, but one that is typical of some in the LCRC.

    Here’s the thing. If what you want to publish will get you a visit from the Secret Service, you shouldn’t publish it. An official party committee sending out a picture of the sitting president with a bullet hole in his forehead… that’s a problem, zombie-fied or not.

    So why was it “the highest form of patriotism” when it was Bush in the crosshairs, but Obama-as-a-zombie somehow gets this massive free pass? Or that it’s OK to target other Republican public figures and shoot them in a video game… of zombie versions of those public figures…

    Bit of a double standard? Or am I missing something here?

    Shaun,

    What you are missing here is the hypocrisy of the liberals who can call Republicans in Congress “terrorists” and “hostage-takers” and then decry the lack of civility in political discourse and accuse the right of inflammatory hate-speech.

    How was the candy corn? Don’t forget to brush your teeth tonight.

    Teeth are for people with cavities.

    Those who have a cavity beween the ears –
    like, probably, YOU.

    Well, I chided NLS for saying this was “the most disgusting thing he’s ever seen”…so I ought to take a whack at you for being practically the only one in the Republican Party in Virginia who wants to defend this. It was stupid and tasteless. Also trivial. Carry on.
