The creators of the card game Cards Against Humanity have purchased a strip of land on the border between Mexico and the United States with the intent to stop President Donald Trump from building a border wall. As part of a Christmas promotion called "Cards Against Humanity Saves America," the company has purchased a plot of vacant land and has retained a lawyer with the intent of making it "as time consuming and expensive as possible" to build the wall. People who sent the company $15 will recieve a series of six gifts for Christmas, including an illustrated map of Cards Against Humanity's new plot of land. (The product sold out quickly.)
From Cards Against Humanity's website:
Donald Trump is a preposterous golem who is afraid of Mexicans. He is so afraid that he wants to build a twenty-billion dollar wall that everyone knows will accomplish nothing. So we’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built.
On Day 1, all Cards Against Humanity Saves America recipients will get an illustrated map of the land, a certificate of our promise to fight the wall, some new cards, and a few other surprises.
Cards Against Humanity is a politically-incorrect card game where players are encouraged to be as distasteful as possible. Sample cards include "Dead Parents," "Auschwitz," and "September 11, 2001."
On its website, Cards Against Humanity says that it is saving the United States from "Injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada."
This is not Cards Against Humanity's first stunt, but it is its first overtly political action. Previously, they've had people send money to dig a hole, and also sold "nothing" (as in, literally nothing) for $5 a pop. The website is rather unapologetic in its new political bent, and responded in the FAQ with something that can't be printed on this website.
