The entertainment world never seems to tire of zombies. The horrifying concept of human beings evolving into dangerous, uncontrollable specimens continuously captivates audiences.
Perhaps this is why political groups are now relying upon this horror theme to help diminish their opponents. This week, following a number of similar political efforts, there's a new, graphic video that shows zombie Republicans being killed by "machine guns, grenades, garden shears, and chainsaws."
In September, there was the "Tea Party Zombies Must Die" video game that allowed players to gun down Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, among others. Then, yesterday, there was a graphic that showcased a zombie version of President Barack Obama with a bullet hole in his head.
...a humor-tinged Democrat activist website today released a controversial Halloween video portraying marriage equality opposition as brain-dead zombies. The comically bloody and graphic video is set on the White House lawn and features Obama 2012 activists beheading, exploding, and maiming politically conservative zombies with machine guns, grenades, garden shears, and chainsaws.
Commentaries on gay marriage and other issues are punctuated with geysers of blood, dismemberment, and explosions as Democratic activists are shown defending President Obama’s White House from Republican presidential zombie voters.
“The metaphor of Republicans as zombies is unfortunately very appropriate because their heartless opposition to gay marriage, healthcare, and climate change science is a political infection that if not fought back, will be deadly to the lives of millions of Americans," explained Luke Montgomery, RepublicanZombieDefense.com's founder and a prominent gay rights activist.
"It is unbelievable that we live in an age when millions of Americans continue to be denied the right to marry, based on their sexual orientation," he continued. "Progress is being made to eliminate this archaic way of thinking, but allowing Republicans to take the White House in 2012 will deal a huge setback to marriage equality.”
Below, watch the graphic video (caution: extreme violence and language):
Montgomery is behind other gay marriage efforts as well, including the FCKH8 (warning: language) web site and campaign.
