Drunk Lives Matter T-shirts offend

An event organizer is in deep trouble over a parody t-shirt he's putting on sale in time for St. Patrick's Day. The slogan on the shirts is "Drunk Lives Matter" and the Offense Nazis have predictably claimed the shirts to be "offensive" and "scary".

Yes, scary. 

The Baltimore Radio 92Q Jam attacked PubCrawls.com, the company behind the t-shirt saying: "For people of color it's already scary enough to see masses of drunk white people roaming around town, but to see them intoxicated and making fun of a movement whose goal is to save our very lives? Well, that's damn near terrifying."

Yeah, right. They're so scared they may have to resort to name calling and violence to deal with their "fear". The whole BLM movement is based on a lie. 

Michael Brown never raised his hands only to be shot. He went after the cop's gun.

"FYI: St. Patrick's Day is this Friday, March 17. Be careful folks," the radio idiot said.

Melissa Kravitz, a writer for leftist Mic.com, went after the shirt claiming it calls the whole of St. Patrick's Day into question. Ms. Kravitz is obviously talking about how wearing the parody shirt puts her Irish celebration into question.

Kravitz wrote: "This parody delegitimizes the Black Lives Matter slogan by altering it to encourage a day of debauchery and binge drinking, and the shirt also implies the main point of St. Patrick's Day is to get drunk."

Debauchery? Extreme indulgence in bodily pleasures and especially sexual pleasures?

Perhaps Kravitz ought to get her head out of the gutter. 

She blathered on: "A swarm of drunken St. Patrick's Day celebrators wearing a shirt that essentially denounces the BLM movement is a scary thing to imagine encountering, but PubCrawls.com has made it a possibility."

She's obviously drunk.

But some of the chronically offended reviewed the shirt on Amazon saying that it's "extremely racist," and "There is nothing funny about the murder of black people."

I fully agree--there is nothing funny about murder in general, black, white or otherwise. However, not everything is racist, because that diminishes what racism really is, and no one race has the market cornered on racism. 

We have become a nation so divided since President Obama first came into office. Everything offends the Offense Nazis.

Soon colleges may offer courses on how to take offense about everything and everyone who's different from you.
