Tea Party Zombies Are Dying, But Alas Not of Natural Causes

Abby Zimet

Oh dear. There's a new over-the-top video game from StarvingEyes Advergaming wherein you slaughter the "Tea Party Zombie" likes of Palin, Bachmann, Gingrich and Beck in blood-spattered settings. Some of the characters are clever - "Generic Pissed Off Old White Guy Zombie," "Factory- made Blonde Fox News Barbie Who Has Never Had A Problem In Her Life Zombie," "Koch Industries Whore Lobbyist Pig Zombie," "Express Racist Views Anonymously On The Internet Modern Klan Zombie" - but the blood and gore and sounds of shots are disturbing, and the right is having a fine  self-righteous time with it. Couldn't the zombies just have had to, we dunno, get re-educated by Noam Chomsky?

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
