WTF is wrong with these people?

If we lived in a world where crazed conservative gun nuts weren't shooting up liberal churches and immigration centers, killing cops, assassinating doctors, and murdering Holocaust Museum security guards, shit like this (h/t: Chris at Cynical-C) might be marginally humorous:

Unfortunately, we don't live in that world...we live in this one. The latest "humorous" permit is similar to this old standard,

so I guess they're getting better at putting the same old hate in a shiny new package.

When will they stop?

Steve Young wrote about this at HuffPo.


update 3 (6/13 @ 7:30am):
David Neiwert has what may be the first mention of the original permit, from June 2005.
