STAY OUT OF POLITICS, WOOT!
THIS SHIRT IS INSULTING, IT MAKES ME SICK, and I will just not buy it and move on with my life, because I am not a crazy person.

You both realize there was not only a Sanders shirt but a Trump shirt covering both sides of the issue in a category entitled Editor’s Choice: NSF…Anyone!.. Woot didn’t make these shirts. While maybe you feel they shouldn’t deal with politics at all, Woot Shirts have always been about the collective consciousness of our country. Woot supports independent artists who wouldn’t have such a platform if not for them. (and they help innovate an entire market based on that principle) While it is 100% your choice to vote with your dollars, maybe make that determination after looking at the site as a whole. I think in this day and age you would be hard pressed to find anywhere to buy anything from if you stopped buying every time you got offended. Just my 2 cents.

Sorry @Jeffosaurus I can’t vote crab. My vote is for our future robotic overlords (getting in on it early in the hopes of being spared) https://shirt.woot.com/offers/robot-lincoln-2020?ref=cnt_ctlg_dgn_7

I’m pretty sure @simic was kidding with his comment in an attempt to poke fun at the people who rage quit (or so they said, anyway) over a Trump shirt yesterday. As @everclear823 pointed out, they had shirt designers make shirts for both of the major political sides if they were going to make a political design. It’s not an attack on any one side.

Also note that Woot has said they’re probably not going to go with this theme in their shirt derbies again because it hasn’t gone over so well.

Ah… as usual I missed the joke too… I am way too literal of a person sometimes.

Yeah I don’t think Woot was ready for the amount of whining and complaining from both the left and the right about this stuff. I don’t blame them for not wanting to fuel the fire and deal with more of it.

At the same time though, I hate that in this day and age we cater to the extremists on both sides for fear of backlash and drama. I miss the days of the majority being the ones people cared about.

I am not sure I want to continue buying shirts (or anything else) from Woot if this is what they offer. You should remove this product and stay out of politics. We are FULLY aware of how your boss feels about Sanders!

Then maybe they should just stay away from shirts with any kind of political message. Just a thought!

There is literally nothing Woot could do on this that would make everyone happy. Some people want shirts like this and some don’t. Personally, I don’t think any of it is worth getting upset over, regardless of political affiliation, but your mileage may vary.

who cares

Sadly more than one lol

I don’t think Unkie Jeff even remembers he still owns us, let alone having any influence on what happens on our Shirt site.
