The basis of these t-shirts was clearly something along the lines of this:

'Let's rile up the social reactionaries who never stop looking for confirmation of their certainty that the world is going to hell in a handbasket!'

It worked. That's why these t-shirts sell. The producers know it. The consumers know it.

I'm being quite serious. Humor is inextricably linked to discomfort. Usually, the link is subtle. In this case, it's so over the top that it seems incredible that anyone would be reeled-in to being offended by it - but let's be honest, nothing is ever too obvious for that. The 'joke' here is the faux pas of the sentiments being expressed (or, in modern parlance, their political incorrectness).

My son is too old for that nonsense. I remember it. He tried to offend everyone that he possibly could all of the time. Sigh.

These are for adults but sold at a store whos demographic is 10-20. If you check steven rhodes instagram you can see hes posted a bunch of satanic art. It goes beyond the “humor” because propaganda and lies is often laced in humor along with a sliver of truth. This is called paychological manipulation. All this clowns “art” has demonic and satanic connotations depictinf evil and pentagrams etc. basically its trash. And spencers gifts is trash. And anyone who approves of this crap is trash.

it's not funny to me, nor do i actively 'approve'. But at the same time, it doesn't bother me one bit and as such I don't actively disapprove. It's not 'trash', it's simply something you don't like.

Well, this sure isn't anything good. It serves no purpose in any positive way to society.

Back in the '70s I once saw I guy at the county fair with a T-shirt that read, "Mustache Rides, 5 cents"

Holy Jesus have mercy on us all.
