Apparently cops and Marines DO have a right to not be offended.
Apparently cops and Marines DO have a right to not be offended.

For the last week or so, conservatives have been having conniptions over a high school student’s painting hanging in a hallway between the U.S. Capitol and congressional offices, because it hurts their feelings with an unflattering portrayal of police. The painting was submitted last spring by David Pulphus, then a high school senior, as part of the House of Representatives “Artistic Discovery” contest for high school artists, and was selected as a winner by Missouri Democrat Lacy Clay. Based on the 2014 protests in Ferguson, it depicts two cops as warthogs pointing guns at protesters while a black man is crucified on the scales of Justice. While it had been on display since May, the painting suddenly became far too offensive and dangerous for public consumption once Tucker Carlson’s Internet Rage App ran a piece about it last week.

Thank the good Lord above, a brave member of Congress was willing to do something to protect America’s law enforcement community from a high school student’s polemic art, lest it inspire the murder of police officers. Rep. Duncan Hunter told Fox News all about his act of heroism:

“I was angry,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told FoxNews.com. “I’ve seen the press [reporting] on this for about a week or so. … I’m in the Marine Corps. If you want it done, just call us.

Hunter said he walked over to the artwork Friday morning with a few colleagues and unscrewed it. He then delivered it to the office of Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., the congressman whose office had allowed the piece to be displayed.

This is indeed educational! We thought the job of the USMC was to protect us from our military enemies, not from high schoolers’ paintings. Thanks for clarifying that for us, Rep. Hunter! We do hope Rep. Hunter knows that one story about the atheist professor and the Marine is an urban legend, though.

Police groups around the country have been complaining about the painting for some time, including this impassioned train wreck of mixed metaphors from a blog post by the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs:

Joe Patterson, President of the St. Louis County Police Association, said it best, “we are not about censorship, but good art and good taste are sometimes not the same thing. This is an extraordinarily disrespectful piece at a minimum. We in the law enforcement community have been continuing to work to build bridges and come to a better understanding with our minority community…and then we have irresponsible leadership from elected officials pouring gasoline on bridges haven’t even finished being built yet. He’s picking at these wounds that we’re trying to heal.”

Don’t pour gasoline on that bridge scab! It’ll get infected! Also, it’s not about censorship, it’s about demanding the government remove a work of art that police deem offensive, which is different somehow. Won’t something be done about this runaway political correctness?

When he selected Pulphus’s acrylic painting back in May, Rep. Clay saluted his young constituent’s work as “a colorful landscape of symbolic characters representing social injustice, the tragic events in Ferguson, Missouri and the lingering elements of inequality in modern American society,” which just goes to show how completely wrong Rep. Clay is, because after all, the painting is not flattering to police officers who put their lives on the line on a daily basis to protect the rights of scum like David Pulphus. Who therefore should not be allowed to have his art hanging in a government building, because LOGIC.

And what will happen next? Rep. Hunter told Fox News how Artistic Freedom works in America today: “Lacy can put it back up, I guess, if he wants to … but I’m allowed to take it down.” You know, we have a feeling he may not actually have that right. Call it a hunch. Then again, maybe this is how Freedom will be working from here on out. Trump won, you know, and you snowflakes had better stop bitching about it or you’ll find out what happens. You do not have the right to not be offended, but cops and Republican congressmen do, OK?

In any case, this is certainly excellent publicity for Rep. Hunter, protector of cops from acrylics on canvas, who’s been getting some bad press lately for his own outrageous use of campaign funds, like spending $600 to fly his family’s pet rabbit in its very own seat on an airliner — just a little mistake, his campaign insisted, as was the use of $1,300 in campaign funds to buy video games on the Steam network, which Hunter explains was a little goof that happened when his son somehow charged the games to the campaign account. These things happen! And that is why Duncan Hunter voted to gut the House Ethics Office that had made him pay back more than $60,000 of campaign funds he illegally spent!

But now, Duncan Hunter will be known as the brave Marine who took down a painting and saved countless cops’ lives, instead of the dork who blew campaign funds on rabbit transit. But no matter what, in our hearts, we’ll always think of him as the idiot who insisted on national TV that the Border Patrol had captured 10 ISIS operatives sneaking across the border, a story that miraculously disappeared because the lamestream media can’t handle the truth. Funny, you’d have thought Homeland Security would have made a big deal over a catch like that.

    Wow! For an action taken by the armed forces, this was done very quickly.

    I figured he would have said he was going to do it, then had a party to say that he did do it (though some details still needed to be ironed out), then showed up in the hallway and got confused and took down a whole bunch of paintings, but not the one he meant to, then took the one he meant to and accidentally destroyed it and beat up the kid that pained it, started a huge fight and the cops showed up, burned the building down, caused a huge traffic pileup outside that resulted in the deaths of a number of senior citizens who couldn’t get access to their medical care, then blamed Obama for the whole mess.

  • Anna Rompage

    What a very special little white power snowflake this Duncan appears to be…

    So tough appearing on the outside, and yet so fragile and timid on the inside that he cannot appreciate the culturally diverse views that are represented here in the US…

    So while Donald is tweeting, Congress will get into an argument about a painting. Good to know that our elected officials in Washington are tending to our nation’s issues!

    That was definitely a 20-car pile-up of horses that have already left the barn door open, but “He’s picking at these wounds that we’re trying to heal” could be more accurately phrased as “He’s trying to apply direct pressure to a pierced artery after I emptied my service revolver into him.”

    Also: one does not “accidentally” purchase $1300-worth of games on Steam, it takes a very, very itchy trigger finger.

    Now, if I were Lacy Clay I would not put the painting back, I would introduce a bill before the elected representatives to get that area of hallway named as ‘The Duncan Hunter Safe Space’.

    Also too, you’ve got to love the Streisand Effect, what are the chances of me, a Brit, seeing this in the first place.

  • I hate to say it and this is just my opinion-but-all the marines I have met in the service of this great Trumpastan-were really close to being stupid. Plus-Bob the Doberman laughed at the rabbit being on an airplane-he just would have ate him and then not worried about paying for the rabbits airfare. Dobermans are always thinking about saving taxpayers money.

    I don’t know if this was posted yet, but no story on Duncan Hunter Jr. is complete without mentioning that he’s the Vaping Congressman! He’s the preeminent advocate for vaping and vaping rights on the Hill!

      Vaping doesn’t work. A professor in a lecture to which I listened on an educational DVD made the observation that most of us alcoholics didn’t start our drinking history with scotch but with wine coolers and the fruity flavors adding to the vapors is doing just as much to introduce our adolescents to a lifetime of nicotine addiction.

        Yeah, it is not a good thing, but I much prefer being around vaping than smoking. I wouldn’t want a potential fire hazard and certain lameness hazard like an e-cig in my house, though. Prescription opioids to heroin would be a good comparison, too, though the government and scientists should research the issue more so we know whether vaping is a “gateway”.

          only a gateway to real tobacco flavor country

            “It’s a big country”.
            Still one of my favorite scenes from television, ever, though I’m sure you’re not familiar with the program:

            That was exactly the scene I was referring to! I am H0mer0 after all. OH! you meant that sarcastically(or “ironically”)!
