Conservatives express outrage at art, public yawns October 24, 2010Posted by Evil Bender in wingnuts.
It seems Brent Bozell just got around to noting that people are offended by art, and that’s okay as long as the artists is liberal or the art can be seen as anti-Christian. Most of his piece is the usual gibberish of the “government shouldn’t do things that offend me–now where are my wars of aggression, laws locking up pot smokers, and institutionalized homophobia” type. But he also makes some time to implicitly endorse those who destroy others’ property, as long as that property is artwork:
The artistic elites like to pretend that they’re the sophisticates, and their opponents are the uneducated brutes. But looking at weird and junky cartooning like Chagoya’s just makes you think the vandalism here wasn’t committed by the lady with the crowbar, but by the guy with the paints.
