The latest project by StarvingEyes Advergaming is a new video game giving players a chance to explore a post-apocalyptic Fox News studio and kill off zombies that resemble famous conservatives, including Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck.
Other characters in the first-person shooter include the "Generic Pissed Off Old White Guy Zombie", the "Pissed Off Stupid White Trash Redneck Birther Zombie" and the "Express Racist Views Anonymously On the Internet Modern Klan Zombie", who dons the remains of a KKK robe as he wanders around with a sign that describes President Obama as a Muslim. In between levels, players are given tidbits of political facts, so the game is educational as well as entertainment.
Obviously, the game is causing quite a stir, especially in the conservative establishment.
I think the fact that a game like this, although possibly in poor taste, is a statement about how seriously mainstream America is about depriving the conservative tea party movement of credibility. And this is a good thing. The tea bags want to take this country backward. Back to a time where the white/corporate establishment ruled and people had no rights at all, unless you consider the right to be subjected to all kinds of indignities a right.
Tea bags do remind me of mindless, flesh eating zombies. The flesh they savor the most is the flesh of American workers. Minimum wage earners are relatively safe.
I don't advocate violence, but virtual violence against people who are puerile, disingenuous, and backward is just fine with me. I'm buying this game. It will be good for my liberal soul.
