On December 20, 2013, political pundit Ann Coulter was a guest on the Sean Hannity Show, a drive-time talk radio program broadcast nationwide, guest-hosted that day by Kirby Wilbur. Near the beginning of the show’s third hour, Ann Coulter said the following:

Look at their blind, passionate hatred for those on the other side — like George Bush. I mean you can go to this Web site zombietime which has the photos of effigies of George Bush being burned, being decapitated. They look at regular left-wing, anti-war, anti-Bush rallies: they sell hats, bags, backpacks that said “Kill Bush” on them. Can you imagine — I mean forget the reaction from the Left, can you imagine a conservative making up such a bag for Obama or Clinton? No — you oppose their policies; you don’t hate them with the hot hot hate of a thousand suns.

Ann was referring of course to this classic zomblog post:

Death Threats Against Bush at Protests Ignored for Years

(and also the related post Bush as Hitler, Swastika-Mania: A Retrospective).

Was Ann’s description of the posts correct? Well, mostly. For example, during the Bush era did leftist protesters overtly display messages that said “Kill Bush”? Yes, as the following examples taken from the post reveal:

Did the left-wing protesters depict Bush being decapitated? Yes:

Did they burn him in effigy? Yes:

And that’s just a tiny sampling — see the original post for countless more examples.

Where Ann was slightly off-base was her memory that the post showed people selling “hats, bags, backpacks” with these messages. That may have indeed happened, but I don’t have much record of that in the report itself: Instead, it seems that the vast majority of such death threats were individually crafted by the protesters themselves. Which, in a way, is actually worse than merely buying pre-made death threats — personally hand-making and then displaying a death threat is more significant and less legally defensible than buying one that someone else made for you.

That being said — there in fact were mass-produced t-shirts that said “Kill Bush”:

While it could have been the case that these were sold at protests (which is what Ann said), I don’t have a photographic record of that happening.

Even so: Thanks, Ann, for the mention!

    You’ve earned far more recognition than you’ve received, Zombie. Thank you for reporting what the “professional” media have not.

    I agree, Hollowpoint. There are far too few real journalists out there who show everything that goes on…they are too busy cherry picking the news so they can distort the reports to their liking. The left hates when real reports of their miscreant activities make news…it shows that their peace-loving, inclusive and thoughtful image is just a mirage.

    I had great fun with this Bush/death threat photo essay a few years ago. A very liberal columnist in Atlanta was telling his readers there had never been any occurrences of this sort and his evidence was that he did a search and found nothing reported. The first time I sent him to your page he came back and told that us it may have happened but never in the US. I and few others had to break it to him that California might not always seem like it, but it was still in the good old USA.

    Thanks for all your work.

    A death being reporten on Thai TV as I type, but it seems to have been an accident, not provoked or induced. Michael Yon is here (shadowing prime minister wannabee Mr Sutep) and I’m a couple kilometers northeast, where another HUGE intersection is closed to traffic in order for Thais to peacefully DEMAND Justice, transparency and clean-house (end to corruption) NOW!

    Good work, Zomboid One, stay the course!

    Ann Coulter and Zombietime — two things well past their prime.

    Don’t know how to contact you directly, so I’m posting here.

    Somebody has posted one of your pics without acknowledging you as the source.

    Here is the original article

    And it was re-posted again by this site:

    Just thought you should know.

    Another right-wing propagandist taking images out of context I must say you’d give Fox News a run for it’s money. I remember seeing your photos as a kid and getting all upset that you were taking the protesters out of context like the Bush whaker for example. It’s not really a death threath to Bush they where calling for Bushes legal execution.
