The violence against police in the United States has been instigated by the Democrats. Pandering to inner-city voters, they have fomented unrest, and encouraged rioting and anti-police violence. In Washington D.C., the Democrats doubled-down on their anti-police narrative by putting up a painting that depicts a police officer as a pig, three times.
Democrat Representative Lacy Clay, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus from whose Missouri district the picture came, hung the painting back up, calling Hunter’s action “blatant censorship.”
After Clay put the painting back up, another Republican, Colorado Representative Doug Lamborn, took the painting down, again. He took it to Clay’s office and told the Democrat Congressman that it doesn’t belong in the Capitol.
Clay rehung it – again.
“It was wrong and it was inappropriate,” Clay said regarding the GOP efforts to take down the painting. “It’s not about defending an art contest. It’s about defending the Constitution.”
Of course not.
Clay insisted he is not “anti-police” and said he “does not agree or disagree with the painting” — arguing his intent is to defend the First Amendment rights of the 18-year-old artist, David Pulphus.
He argued the artist’s worldview has been shaped by the “animalistic” behavior of police officers. Isn't that an “anti-police” statement? I thought he said he is not “anti-police”?
He said the rules do not allow paintings with “sensationalistic” subjects or those that depict “contemporary political controversy.”
The acrylic painting depicts a police officer as a pig in uniform aiming a gun at African-American protesters. Above the scene, two birds — one black, one white — fight, and beside them, an African-American protester holding a scale of justice is crucified.
The Democrat Party's class warfare has worked beautifully for them, hasn't it? The painter of the police-officer-as-a-pig-in-uniform painting, I am sure, is not aware that the Democrats are the real racists who supported slavery, created the KKK, created the Jim Crow laws, Democrat President Woodrow Wilson segregated the military, Democrats (including Al Gore Sr.) filibustered against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson was a racist who used the “N” word often, Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first Supreme Court pick was an active member of the KKK, Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was an active member and leader of the KKK and his KKK membership was once justified by Bill Clinton, or that Bill Clinton and Harry Reid both made remarks about Barack Obama that could be construed as being racist.
Law enforcement groups have called the painting, and the willingness of the Democrats to display it, “reprehensible, repugnant and repulsive.”
