Thoughts?! Please? Anyone? Cause I have no idea what to think of this article.

July 18th, 2008 | Author: Anthony Springer Jr

A 25-year-old woman in New York City is suing the designer of an anti-Barack Obama t-shirt after she was assaulted while wearing one of his controversial t-shirts.

The woman, who has not been identified, purchased a shirt with the words “Obama is My Slave” shirt for $69. While wearing the shirt this past Tuesday, she was assaulted by four girls, who pushed her down, pulled out her earphones, and spit in her face according to the New York Metro News.

Apollo Braun—the Israeli born designer who made the shirt—is now saying the victim of the attack is trying to sue him for “all he’s got.”

Braun claims that his designs reflect the views of “ordinary WASPs (White Anglo Saxon Protestants).”

“For a lot of people, when they see Obama, they see a slave. People think America is not ready for a black president,” Braun told Metro.

In addition to the “Obama Is My Slave” tee, Braun has also designed shirts with the following slogans: “Jews Against Obama,” “Obama=Hitler,” and “Who Killed Obama?”

The latter shirt, Braun says, is the most popular.

Braun says the only thing he likes about Obama is that he’s black because his ethnicity “opens the door for minorities.” He also says he doesn’t like Obama because “he is a Muslim” and “he reminds me of Adolf Hitler.”

The Muslim rumor has already been debunked.

Yeah, seriously. That was only one of a million things wrong with that story, though.

But is America ready for a rich white straight male anglo-saxon protestant president?

First I thought "wow, what a stupid woman" then I looked at the slogans braun had made and thought "wow, what a stupid man".

I don't know who I want to win this.

Seriously, I love the pit. Straight to the point.

Really though, I can't decide if the bint deserves to be publicly mocked or if the shirt maker deserves to get sued for all he's got. Perhaps the courthouse will collapse during the case.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I hope the woman wins just so they guy can't afford to sell T-shirts anymore. He's clearly ignorant of Obama's positions. Obama is nothing like Hitler, and I don't mean to sound antisemitic but he sounds like an Israeli when he says he doesn't like him for being a Muslim. This guy is just trying to stir up controversy and the only people more stupid than him are those who buy the T-shirts and expect nobody to hurt them for it. Quite frankly I'm proud of the girls that harassed her. Harassment is not the best way to go about this, but the majority of people who still believe Obama is a Muslim, and the majority of people who still care about his ethnicity are too stupid to understand anything other than violence.

I hope she wins the lawsuit and gambles all the money away.

Those shirts aren't even clever. Why pay $70 for a shirt that basically says "I'm going to do my best to offend you, but not even be witty about it?"

The designer is stupid for making the shirts, the woman is stupid for buying the shirt, the woman is stupid for suing the designer. By my count, that's the designer -1, the woman -2. But the entire situation is so laced with idiocy that it's hard not to shake your head while reading this article.

Stupid ****ing bitch. How can you buy the tee-shirt out of your own free will and then try and sue the seller. She deserved to get beaten up anyway, racist *****.

I'll join the "I hope she wins crowd". I read the first part and thought the designer should have won, but reading the rest of it showed how profoundly stupid he is.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

This reminds me of a Window cleaner in Britain.

The window cleaner had been doing this job for 10 years+ . One day he falls off the ladder, and sues the company for not training him how to use a ladder.

While the designer is a gigantic ****tard, he has his freedom of speech and expression, and he shouldn't be sued for expressing his opinion, no matter how stupid it is.
