Boycott Cafe Press

click the picture above and join the protest and boycott!

After initially pulling the Psalm 109:8 merchandise which not so covertly issued threats against the President, Cafe Press had a change of heart regarding DanceswithPumas racist and bigoted propaganda store, here is their response;

Cafe Press reverses its decision

The crap stays up after all, according to another mass email (in which no one is bcc’d):
Dear Michelle,Thank you for contacting CafePress.com!

Cafepress looks at content on a case by case basis, and makes decisions about what content is permissible based on our content usage policy.

Anti-presidential gear has been a mainstay at Cafepress since we were founded in 1999 and has become a key component of political discourse.  Our site has become a cultural barometer of public opinion and as such designs often come into question.  In managing our content we are trying to protect self expression, while making sure we are not advocating violence.

We initially pulled the Psalm 109:8 content from our products today because broader media dialog indicated that these designs potentially suggested violence towards the president. Based on current public discourse and further review of the actual content, we have determined that it is fair political commentary and we are in the process of reinstating this merchandise.  As with all of our content, these designs will continue to be reviewed and if at any time their meaning is construed as advocating violence we will revisit our decision.

What a bunch of bullshit that is, anyone who has read the bible knows what the meaning of  Psalm 109:8, if you are not familiar with it, it says this;

8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labor.
12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.

Sounds like veiled threats to me and at the very least a call to all the fundies for physical action against the President. I urge everyone to contact the person above at Cafe Press and demand that the material be taken off of their website.

email the following and ask them to look further into Murphy and DWP’s cafe press store;

rachel@msnbc.com << Rachel Maddow

countdown@msnbc.com  << Keith Olbermann

hardball@msnbc.com << Chris Matthews

    You are an exaggerator. The actual phrase for 109:8 is the following…

    8 May his days be few;
    may another take his place of leadership.

    it means, may he be a one term president.

    All the rest is stuff you added in because they follow in subsequent verses, but they are not a part of 109:8.

    109:8 is just those two sentences, nothing more, nothing less.

    Did you make a big stink about the Sharia march in England on Oct. 31st of 2009? You know, the peaceful march that comes before stronger measures are advocated for those who don’t want to become muslim?

    Am I being unfair if I label the march as advocating violence since subsequent steps after the march do advocate violence against non-believers?

    Do you see how if you are going to take the Psalm statement and add on the other verses, then it is also fair to do the same with the Sharia march as well?

    In your opinion it is bad form to post on an old topic

    It was your escalation that caused the decision.

    According to CafePress, General consensus has proven that the design does point to a broader interpretation of the Psalm and thus has been deemed inappropriate for sale at CafePress.

    You are the broader interpretation.

    So I’ll ask again, were you in favor of the Sharia marches to be held on Oct. 31, of 2009?

    One more thing, you seem incapable of distinguishing between people who use their real name when posting, and people such as yourself who hide behind fake names yet insult others.

    Since you like stopping things, this too needs to stop. I’m going to ask wordpress to sanction blogs that insult their guests who use real names,while the blog owners hide in the darkness of a fake name.

      I’m sure that that will get you far.
