From americannews.com and other sites that have articles that just bash Obama or other Dems in the most ridiculous way. And these people eat it up without question.

I don't know if the page knows that it's satire or does know, and knows how dumb their followers are and will just eat it up regardless

Just kinda sad, and funny, and then sad again to read the comments

it's probably sincere, the same thing happened with a particularly tasteful piece of art from bioshock infinite.

We elect Obama and all the capitalists will be executed. This is a legitimate concern of mine. - OMGWTFPIE, 2011

^LOL, is Bioshock notable for its satire of American politics? I might want to pick it up...

More broadly it satires libertarianism, but yes. The image is from Bioshock infinite, but the whole series pokes a lot of fun at Ayn Rand and various objectivist/libertarian thinkers

I thought only Bioshock 1 pokes fun at Ayn Rand. Not sure what 2 and infinite are suppose to criticize.

Bioshock Infinite is pretty squarely pointed at the far-right, Tea Party style conservatism, with worship of the Founding Fathers and hatred of foreigners, set in a floating city that seceded from the United States. I didn't play Bioshock 2.

Bioshock is what Atlas Shrugged wishes it could have been.

Bioshock 2 is still about Ayn Rand, and somewhat about socialism. A lot of the story of Bioshock 2 reveals Andrew Ryan's attempts to suppress communities that were not doing anything illegal, but that threatened to undermine the spread of his ideology. Even going as far as to use violence to stop dissemination of ideas he viewed as harmful. It pokes at the left fairly hard, but a lot of it is in a context of showing why things happened in Bioshock 1, why Rapture ended up failing, and that the libertarian ideal needs force to stifle dissent. You also get to see a lot of Andrew Ryan's attempts to spread his ideas to a future generation, it's quite interesting.
