Dems Rehang “Cops as Pigs” Painting in Capital; INSTANTLY This Happens…

A piece of revisionist history “art” that depicts cops as pigs was shamefully displayed in the Capitol, which led Rep. Duncan Hunter to remove it. Now, Rep. William Lacy Clay, the one responsible for hanging the disgusting piece in the first place, reportedly plans to run to the police against Hunter for taking down the “artwork” that denigrates… the police.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

The Congressional Black Caucus held an event on Tuesday to rehang a painting that depicts police officers as pigs, which Rep. Duncan Hunter (R., Calif.) removed last week from a tunnel that connects the Capitol with a House office building.

Duncan’s chief of staff, Joe Kasper, said Friday that the painting was inappropriate after the congressman took it down. The artwork was created by a high school student and shows pigs wearing police uniforms pointing guns at black citizens.

The student who created the painting is from St. Louis in the district of Democratic Rep. William Lacy Clay (Mo.), who put up the painting in June after it won a local art competition and fought to rehang it this week, according to the Washington Examiner.

Clay said that he intends to file a complaint against Hunter with the Capitol Police.

Ah, so Clay is going to run to the police after he celebrated art that denigrated them. Got it.

“The rehanging of this painting for public view represents more than just protecting the rights of a student artist, it is a proud statement in defense of the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which guarantees freedom of expression to every American,” a statement from Clay’s office read.

I don’t think most people are saying that the artist shouldn’t be able to paint his garbage if he so chooses, but rather that it is not appropriate to display it in the U.S. Capitol.

It’s not that complicated. There are plenty of things that you can do but shouldn’t.

What happened next is pretty hilarious. After the piece was put back up, another representative took it down again. Reportedly, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R., Colo.) took it down this time and brought it to Clay’s office. Clay apparently put it back up.
