Arkansas senator calls for venue boycott over Eyehategod

Wednesday, February 06, 2019 9:04 AM PT


Arkansas state senator Jason Rapert has taken to social media to call for a boycott of the Vino's venue in Little Rock over the promotional graphic used for an upcoming Eyehategod show. Said graphic shows Rapert biting an infant (see below).

Rapert is demanding that Vino's cancel the event and issue an apology:

"Boycott Vinos in Little Rock... Friends, I rarely share with you the hateful posts and pictures that extreme liberals make about me to torment my stand for better moral values. But this time I want you to see what they have done. They use my image on an event without my permission and they depict me 'biting a baby' in my mouth. A wicked and evil depiction on an event entitled 'Eyehategod'. I call on Vinos in Little Rock to cancel this event and apologize for such a disrespectful image that shows the dehumanization of babies lives. It is disrespectful of all who value babies lives and people of faith. They also clearly welcome the Satanic Temple in another post I am sharing. I urge you NOT to frequent Vinos and stand against their hateful rhetoric."

Your eye would hate god too if it was blind, had cataracts or even needed contacts - having to get poked while a plastic film is forced on it day after day.

Republicans are a weird bunch, blabbing about free speech and free market capitalism while silencing those that dare to disagree with their Bible thumping/Israel loving point of view.

To be fair, that's a realistic Photoshop and I can understand how people could take it seriously. Senator flip.

this guy is far from a triggered soyboi
He is a state senator who happens to be a fundamentalist Christian preacher that does a lot of attention whoring via dogshit like putting the 10 commandments at the state capitol building and railing against the church of Satan

He's constantly going on about passing repressive abortion laws, which is why he the baby in his mouth got under his skin.

Good point. It's funny that repubs/the right dont also disagree with the treading on of free speech in situations like this.... even it it's over the top. Hating on people being PC apparently only works when it benefits them. The irony and hypocrisy is very fun.

This has actually little to do with Eyehategod, the band. This is more against the flyer and the venue. Though if the venue has links with satanic retards, then fck em.

The venue should be thanking this dweeb politician for gettin the word out bout the showwww!

The senator should go to the show and demonstrate some mosh skills to clear his name

You're a public figure thus subject to mockery and derision, and abortion is legal - deal with it.

I'm British, so American politics doesn't impact me the same way, but I'm pretty sure I'd want to respond if my image was being used without my permission in a cheap effort to offend me.

The venue should be more concerned with letting a racist abusive thief and his band play there than some poorly made flyer.
