Oba-Mao ironies.

There’s a few in this one:

  • Using a bloodthirsty Communist dictator to sell T-shirts.
  • Watching quite a lot of administration pushback on the socialism thing get casually subverted by some guy in China trying to sell some T-shirts.
  • The Chinese kicking off a visit that’s supposed to be about mutual cultural outreach by banning the T-shirt in question.

Although I suppose that the last one is an improvement.  Back in the day, they’d just have taken the vendors out, shot them, then charged their families for the bullet.

PS: They’re available for sale here, which is a site that will cheerfully pander to both sides of the spectrum when selling you overpriced President-themed junk.

Because that’s AMERICA.
