Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin star as undead banshees in 'Tea Party Zombies Must Die'

Categories: Internet
Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin are a duo of banshee zombies.
A new computer game offers Michele Bachmann-haters an interesting way to vent their political frustrations: shooting a banshee-zombie version of the Republican presidential candidate with a shotgun.

Or perhaps you prefer to get a little dirtier and use the crowbar?

Created by New York-based Starving Eyes Advergaming, Tea Party Zombies Must Die is (unsurprisingly) rattling conservatives across the country.

A first-person shooter, the player roams around dark, Romero-esk landscapes -- decorated with Confederate flags, Swastikas, and pictures of Obama in Joker makeup -- brutally slaughtering Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and other Tea Party members.

The player starts by bashing in skulls with a crowbar, and picks up more advanced weapons along the way.

When the player graduates to the next level, they're rewarded with a fun fact about the Tea Party:

If the players dies, the message is a bit more of a downer:

Among those who have come out against the game is none other than Glenn Beck, who is portrayed as a particularly unflattering, bloated zombie in the video game.
See the resemblance?
"This is one of the most violent things I've ever seen," says Beck on his blog. "Where you're walking in - you're the zombie hunter and you're walking in the front door of FOX News and you're shooting me and Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann and Sean Hannity, you're just shooting all of us or you're cutting us in half with a machete."

The op/ed section of the Colorado Springs Gazette is also weighing in, calling the game "racist" and citing it as further evidence that the Tea Party is "under vicious attack."

Jason Oda, the game's creator, didn't respond to a request for comment from City Pages this morning, but he sent a short email statement to MRCTV regarding whether they expect the backlash to offend other clients.

"The game was just a personal project," writes Oda. "I am not worried about it effecting [sic] business."

If you're going to "sic" the "effected", you need to get your "-esk" right.

Andy: I'm sure you've heard all this before, but dude!  If this was made by conservatives and featured lefties, there would be a huge cry about violent language, civility, tone, etc.  After the AZ shooting, any metaphor (as in a target symbol to "target" certain races) used by righties was used as proof of evil, violent tendencies.

Where's the outrage?  Oh yeah, NOW it's ok.


The epitome of "Infected sorosbots" displaying the only ability they have, drugs .sex and violence. This diseased intellect of a small portion of Cultured Americans that have accumilated  the social deveiance from their parents, teachers and 60 's radicals that know no better.There is a new game coming out called "disinfecting the moronic offspring of Obamabots and freeloading social dependentants. A group of Tea party folks dressed in clothing that protects them from STD's and biological transmitted pandemic diseases. spray down the Obamabots with a very strong disinfectant and a stimulant that will encourage the de-contaminated to look for a job, Stop dealing in drugs and violence and start contributing to the collective. The urge to steal and lie will also be curtailed.
