  • (1888PressRelease) February 10, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA - Political Activist and Artist Keith Shirey, who has been battling censorship for more than a decade over his politically sensitive buttons and artwork is schedule to appear live on the Mother Love show, Tuesday, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m., Feb. 11, 2014. Shirey plans to talk about his various challenges over the years and other examples of how his political correct campaigns have turned things around. He will also talk about the upcoming national elections and issues facing candidates.

    More than a decade ago (Jan. 2002) Shirey was the fourth largest campaign merchandiser in U.S. (accounts with Dennis Kuchinich, John Edwards, Ralph Nader and was number eight in California. Today, Shirey is one of the most popular authors on the TheSpoof.com satire website.

    "Your censorship policies are irrational, illogical and inconsistent in application and are not in the public interest," Keith Shirey told eBay in 2002. "For example, you don't allow social commentary about fellow corporations, however eBay does allow the most tasteless attacks on human dignity in auctions related to the occult and devil worship. I'm not advocating censorship of those items, but I am pointing to the pattern of inconsistency in eBay's policy," Shirey said.

    A dozen years later Shirey said nothing has changed: "The pro-Trayvon artist, Michael D'Antuono is censored for being 'hateful and discriminatory' and what could be more hateful and discriminatory than rape videos of women? And there are other forms of degradation of women through beating them up in sado/masochistic films, all of which eBay allows," Shirey said.

    D'Antuono, who is a friend of Shirey, became angry over the high profile George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case. He contends the giant auction site eBay is discriminating, retaliating and even censoring his artwork online.

    The day Zimmerman's painting tallied more than $100,000 on eBay, Artist Michael D'Antuono got a notice that his artistic interpretation of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin incident violated eBay's "Hateful or Discriminatory policy" and yanked it from the website.
