Stunning Victory For Furious Wingnuts: Obama Camp No Longer Cutting $10 Off Sweatshirts With Hoods

  declare victory and gtfo

Declare victory where you can we guessDid you hear the news???!? The Obama campaign had cut the price of their hooded Obama sweatshirts from $50 to $40, and this was a race-baiting disgrace! And now the hooded sweatshirts are back up to full price! VICTORY! FREEDOM! NOM NOM NOM BRAINZ!

Here is the Gateway Pundit’s blogpost in its entirety, because why not?

Obama Campaign decides that hawking hoodies during Trayvon controversy is as tawdry as it appears.
The sale is off—Team Obama canceled their shameless hoodie sale this past week.
Yahoo reported:

President Obama recently said that if he had a son, he’d look like murder victim Trayvon Martin. And in what some conservatives see as a direct connection between the national controversy surrounding the teen’s death, the Obama 2012 re-election campaign announced via Twitter on Monday that it was putting its collegiate hooded sweatshirt on sale.

The sweatshirt was temporarily discounted to $40 from its regular $50 listing. However, the tweet announcing the sale has apparently been removed and following the hooded sweatshirt link at Obama’s campaign re-election site store shows the clothing item listed at its regular $50 price.

Obama’s critics on the right had a field day with the questionable Twitter posting, with the conservative blog Gateway Pundit calling it “disgusting,” and the website Twitchy asking if “Team Obama is capitalizing on Treyvon Martin’s death?”

It is a great day to be the world’s stupidest person, the Gateway Pundit! It is a bad day to be a college student, though, apparently — look how non-hood that fucking hoodie is! If it said “USC” instead of “Obama,” your editrix would have already seen it 15 times this morning on people walking their dogs on her block. Oh well. Please go put on something more appropriate, college students and former college students, like perhaps a nice Burberry trench, or a classy peacoat. Or an opera cape! Let’s bring opera capes back please. Whatever it is white people wear. Patagonia? [GatewayPundit]

    Best Obama-wear is to be found on 125th Street in Harlem, I have a t-shirt , from 2008, that has Barry looking all sexy and says, in 70s style font-"Mr.November".

    1. WhatTheHeck

      Well Lizzie, would you wear it if it was 50% off?

      Never mind, I think I’ve got you covered on that one.

      1. Limeylizzie

        Even cooler than I had realised, it is an awesome t–shirt and I will be sporting it again when the weather is warmer.

      For real. Even the custom embroidered polar fleece jackets I buy for my employees are only $35. But I guess they're not considered a campaign donation, either.

        1. Lascauxcaveman

          I am, in fact, a job creator. My employees are underpaid but well dressed.

          Besides, it's cheaper to buy them each a nice fleece than to heat the building.

          1. James Michael Curley

            Will you buy me a Burberry's Trench Coat if I work for you? I drove over the last one.

    I think the white college students tend to just go to class in their pajamas half the time these days.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      My favorite campus clothes story: When I was in college, there was this lovely Irish girl in one of my classes, and one day she came to class with a beautiful sweater that said "Guinness" on it. I was chatting her up and asked where one gets such a great sweater.

      "Me mum knitted it for me."

    Kmart discontinued the blue light special on _____ yesterday. I'm claiming victory for _____.

  5. Schmannnity

    Wouldn't cancelling the sale lead to greater "profiting" on Trayvon? Is a Gateway Pundit like a gateway drug–a gateway to greater stupidity?

  6. Barb

    I wouldn't mind wearing Obama's shirt on my way out of the White House at 6 A.M.
    Lizzie, are you with me?

    1. Limeylizzie

      We could wear Obama pajamas, I bet you have better legs than me so you wear the top and I'll wear the bottoms.

  7. YasserArraFeck

    Can't wait for American Apparel to start porn-modeling their Sweatshop-free Mormon undies.

  8. Goonemeritus

    I will stick with my beret in honor of Che, most other head coverings make me look like a degenerate Monk or a teapot cozy.

  9. freakishlywrong

    Yay! Another nontroversy! Oh and "Twitchy" could be called "Bitchy". It's the unholy anchor baby of the ever gracious Malkin.

  10. kissawookiee

    If it's back up to $50 I'm going to need to steal two white people's bikes now to cover it.

    1. Blueb4sunrise

      Edroso relates a comment at Daily Caller. Was it you?

      I stole your bike. I only did it because you're a wanker. I didn't actually want it, or want to sell it for drugs or beer or anything. I just wanted to throw it in the river. So I threw it in the river.

  11. elviouslyqueer

    Whatever it is white people wear. Patagonia?

    No no, Rebecca. Patagonia is for librul tree-hugging fags from Oregon. Real white folks only wear the finest camo, purchased on the Faded Glory clearance rack, and available at your local Wal-Mart.

  12. DoggerelCDogg

    Back in 1980, the ultimate gay fashion statement was a grey hoodie worn under an olive green bomber jacket. You wore this with Levi's and Timberland hiking boots. Everyone on Christopher Street wore this exact same uniform. Wonder what they'r wearing now?

    1. James Michael Curley

      Pea coats are back. Based only on the denizens of the Christopher St. Path Station.

    I got accosted by a giant lemon in front of Lululemon the other day and nearly spilled my iced green tea latte. The lemon wasn't wearing a hoodie, so I didn't shoot it.

    It's tough being a white.

    1. Chichikovovich

      Haven't you ever heard the old Ann Landers advice? "If life gives you lemons, blast its head off!"

    2. Doktor StrangeZoom

      When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade – make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

    3. imissopus

      "When life gives you lemons, throw them back in the face of the person until they give you the oranges you originally asked for!"

      Oh Phil Hartman, you are missed.

  14. freakishlywrong

    I'm getting worried about all these wingnuts. That constant state of outrage can cause constipation or a blockage or something. Then, they'll only be able to shit out of their mouths.

    1. Gleem McShineys

      Jesus, you mean Gateway Pundit could be completely shuttered, if someone just got that guy some laxatives?

  15. bureaucrap

    Still, you have to love the logic. Obama campaign "taking advantage" and "playing the race card" by charging $10 LESS. Do these people not understand what the english phrase "taking advantage" means? I wish my local Safeway would "take advantage" of me like that.

    1. Chichikovovich

      Don't you get it? The Demon-rats want everybody to wear hoodies, so that it will be hard to tell which ones are the real gangsta thugs. It's a clever trap: Law-abiding whites standing their ground against suspicious strangers might learn after the fact that the suspicious black guy they had just killed was the 50-year old chief of cardiac surgery at the university hospital. Now that would just look really bad when the newspapers got ahold of it. The brave patriot would probably not only be arrested, but would have to pay a hefty fine.

  16. edgydrifter

    I don't care if you're a cause I support or Aeropostale–I'm not giving you money to be your fucking billboard. It's supposed to work the other way around. Cheap plain-front hoodies FTW.

    1. deanbooth

      Me too. No words or pictures on anything I wear. I see it more as a privacy thing, the same reason I never post anything on Facebook.

      A few weeks ago I got a fleece jacket to wear around the house ($5!). It has a "Beverley Hills Polo Club" logo on it. Does anyone buy such a thing because they are impressed by the logo? Is it like Superman pajamas for dimwitted adults?

  17. Native_of_SL_UT

    First, free basketballs with Obama's picture on them and now this.
    I'm starting to think this country is going to be truly fucked by these major scandals. The Republic is on the brink. Marshall law is right around the corner.

  18. Troglodeity

    I get all my news from Twitchy and Fox, and my President is Glenn Beck. I am a Real American.

  19. James Michael Curley

    Stupid Wingnut Forks! Quite regularly the Obama Campaign site chooses a different item for a discount. Next will be the B&E set with the Charlotte 2012 commemorative jimmy.

  20. WonkCynic

    To celebrate all the dead arab women, elderly, and kids that Obama has murdered with drones in the past three years, this hoodie will soon be replaced with a new hoodie with the words, "Kill a Sand Nigga' Mama fo' Obama" on the front and the back. All money made from the sale of these new hoodies will be used to purchase more drones so that Obama can continue murdering little sand niggaz. If the body count gets high enough the Nobel Peace hippocrites will reward him with a second affirmative action "Peace" prize.
