Your Taxpayer Dollars At Work

SACRAMENTO, CA -- California Attorney General Bill Lockyer is an official sponsor of a disgusting display of anti-American, anti-military and anti-Semitic “art”, according to a press release issued on July 12, 2005 by the California Arts Council (a taxpayer-funded entity).

HERE to see examples of the art co-hosted by the taxpayer-funded California Arts Council and displayed at the Department of Justice Building in Sacramento. Special thanks to MoveAmericaForward.org

The news release quotes Lockyer as saying:

“It is an honor to co-host this powerful exhibit and display the talent of our legal community,” Lockyer said. “Creative expression stimulates freedom of thought, appreciation for diversity and opens new windows onto the world in which we live. The collected works of these fine artists – and lawyers – achieve these worthwhile objectives with style and beauty.”

Here is some artwork of my own inspired by the above story.

The only picture with "style and beauty" was the one you posted. Especially touching is the tear rolling down Lady Liberty's cheek. I'm sure it was originally thought to refer to the poor and huddles masses coming to her feet, and her compassion for them. Unfortunately, I interpret it a new way today.

So sad.

I have started a petition demanding that the display come down.

I will be hand-delivering it to the Attorney General's office.

Free speech - it's a wonderful thing. I have to keep reminding myself that I spent 26 years defending the right for these wackos to speak.
However, their right to "speak" does not include me being forced to pay for their smut. I'm onto that petition as long as it complains about tax dollars being used for this.

Signed the petition. 1996 so far. Two anti-Bush ads in the popup for the petition. *sigh *

I signed the petition too. Up to 2023 now. Thanks everybody for stopping by.

They can call whatever garbage they wish "Art", but I hope it's just the Californians' taxes that are paying for this particular display...not that the National Endowment for the Arts hasn't already sponsored worse things.

What you posted, is vibrant art.

The junk in the link, is just scrawled, lifeless, pictures.

Hawkeye please forward your artwork to Move America Forward for their Pro-American, Pro-Military exhibit this coming Thursday. Anyone who would like to help the exhibit go to http://www.moveamericaforward.org/index.php/DailyFile/pro_american_response_to_pearcys_anti_american_propaganda/ for the information to submit your artwork.

Isn't Andy Nevis a wonderful example of what young Americans can do!

Yes, Praise God for young Americans like Andy Nevis!
