    “These works of art will give a voice to those whose views are not represented by the mainstream media.”

    “The discussion… will focus on the obstruction of free speech in picture and text during the Bush era.”

    This is what makes me want to take their unshampooed heads and clunk them together like Moe.

    Let’s examine the first quote.
    I know these unhinged loons. I, like most people, have a frothing
    loon in the family. If the front page of the paper is not an EDITORIAL calling for the beheading of Bush the paper is “mainstream.”
    The NYT’s is mainstream. The Washington Post is mainstream.
    Slanting to the left like the deck of the Poseidon is not enough.
    Anything short of unhinged shrill hysteria and the paper is useless in “the struggle.’

    Second quote:

    Who the eff has had their free speech “in pictures and text” OBSTRUCTED during the Bush era?
    First of all, these self important delicate genius’s refuse to be treated as anything less then the OWNERS of the periodical.
    And if the LEFT WING editor thinks the spastic ink drawing of
    Bush boiling and eating babies is not quite capturing the essence of the writer’s piece THEY ARE BEING OBSTRUCTED!!

    Take your stupid drawings and blow them up to Underdog-at -the- Macy-Day-Parade size and march all over Washington. No one is going to stop you.
    But don’t unfurl your granola crumbed bed sheet at the State of the Union Address covered in misspelled crayon idiocy and expect to have the forum indulge you. When you’re carted away it’s not obstruction, it’s called relocating the asshole. You’re free to express yourself – outside.

    These assheads think when the editor of the NYT’s declines to publish their splatter ink drawings – of Cheney screwing the globe with a barbed demonic penis – he was getting his marching orders from Bush.

    What kills me is that while these jerks do their best to topple America (and it’s evil capitalism) I get spammed continuously by Jerelle Kraus (art director of the NYT’s) trying to SELL HER BOOK OF REJECTED ART!
    Don’t sell it Jerelle. Do the progressive thing, give then away!

    I think I’d rather be blown up by a regular bomb than a bomb with a dove mask.

    This is the kind of “conceptual art” you get when the inmates art direct the asylum.

    This “art” makes little sense.

    George Bush says:

    “Why dontcha have the bomb coming down and it bounces off of a huge trampoline shaped like an artists palette?
    You know, try and tie in the theme of ARTISTS, not costume makers.”

  5. The artists have a good idea!

    January 16th, 2009

    Maybe we should have ACTUALLY dropped bombs as long as this is the childish distorted perception they have of what the U.S. is doing.
    Then the war could have been won before their Sharpies dried out writing their placards.

    You conservatives are morons! What is wrong with being against the war? War never solved anything and I am for the sanctity of human life! Bush is an idiot! He started the war just because he enjoyed it. He lied about WMDs and we need to find proof of that so we can prosecute him and maybe impose the death penalty! Then we should do the same to everyone in his administration. They’re killers!!!

    Peace out!

    Nice post Ira! If we stay focused, we can end this killing like we did in Vietnam. Oh, and before you dumbass conservatives throw the “millions of people died after we left Vietnam” crap remember this: we stopped the USA from doing the killing!

    That’s right, Tod! People do not die unless American’s do the killing.
    Everyone knows that.

    Douchenozzle?! You missed the point A-hole! If the Vietnamese and Cambodians want to kill each other, it’s their business. We have no right to be killing them first!

    You’re an idiot!

    uhhh, Tod (with one D)
    It must pain you, as a libwit, to realize that all that killing was one horrible socialist regime (North Vietnam) invading an even MORE horrible communist regime (Cambodia) – and all this killing would be happening whether America was there or not.
    But, being a libwit, I am compelled to point out that we were in South Vietnam to help them fight off the Vietcong uprising. You know, that’s when your benevolent fellow travelers raped, pillaged, beheaded and stole from anyone who didn’t tolerate their world Vision.
    The fighting with Cambodia was tangential to the Vietnam war – but you knew that, right?

    ONE thing that war has solved?

    How about Hitler?
    The war SOLVED Hitler.

    How useful was that piece of paper Chamberlain (your pacifist, DIPlomatic hero) waved around?

    Hey Laurel,
    Let’s make this theory of diplomacy a little more intimate.

    You have a restraining order against a guy who has threatened to
    abduct you, haul you into the woods, anally rape you (as a warmup before the really harsh stuff) and then roll your lifeless corpse into a creek.

    Without the police, their guns and their authorization to use them, how safe does your restraining order make you feel?

    pinhead.

  17. Liberal idiots

    January 18th, 2009

    I’m against war too but if another country/cause/people want to destroy you, I think I’ll op on the American side and support the fight.
    You Liberals do a lot of hating, threatening, fighting for your “cause” – whatever it may be. How many of you want Bush “executed”? rotflmao
    Will u protest and call Obummer a “terrorist”, “baby killer” when he takes office and does not wave the white flag in the Middle East immediately the day he takes office?
    Will u want to impeach Obummer the moment our military kills one person in the Middle East under his watch?
    Obummer already wants to appoint my favorite guy as head of the IRS. The guy that doesn’t pay his taxes (and no, it ain’t Joe the Plumber!)
    It’s going to be real fun to watch the next 4 years, how much we can forgive, forget and do our very best to make sure Obummer goes down in history as a great President no matter what he does.
    Bush haters can’t even find it in their bleeding hearts to thank George Bush for keeping us safe for 7 years. Assholes!
