Freedom of expression hits an all new low after so called artist Karen Fliorito designed a billboard showing the 45th President Donald Trump flanked by two atomic bomb explosions and dollar signs depicted as swastikas. While I’m all for freedom of expression when it comes to things like this, I try and take a more libertarian approach because once you clamp down on one person’s freedom of expression it will inevitably come back to hurt you in the long run, it’s the double standard coming from the left that is disgusting!
When Obama was president we were constantly lectured about how racist we all are and how this country has a race problem. Therefore had anyone decided to design a billboard depicting Obama in this manner we’d immediately be deemed racist.
We’d be receiving lectures from the leftist fake news talking heads sitting at glass tables with network logo coffee mugs about how we should be going to classes to study how we are inherently racist. We would be lectured on how we must accept the fact that we have “white privilege” and we must go out of our way to accommodate the down trodden people in the government organized protected classes.
This is a view of the opposite side if the billboard depicting hands signing the word unity. Sort of ironic that they claim to want unity while designing pictures of hate and divisiveness!
According to the Daily Mail,
FIORITO WROTE ON FACEBOOK: ‘STILL AWAITING THE BACKLASH, DEATH THREATS AND THE LIKE. WISH I HAD TIME TO DRIVE TO PHOENIX TO SEE THE REACTIONS OF PEOPLE ON THE STREET!’
LIMITED LIABILITY CORPORATION WHICH SUPPORTS THE ARTS GAVE FIORITO THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE THE ANTI-TRUMP BILLBOARD ACCORDING TO FOX 29.
UNSURPRISINGLY, THE POST HAS ATTRACTED MIXED REACTIONS. SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT THIS WAS A FAIR USE OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION AND AN IMPORTANT WARNING WHEREAS OTHERS THOUGHT IT WAS COMPLETELY OUT OF LINE AND DISRESPECTFUL TO THE 45TH PRESIDENT.
It’s safe to say this is a disgusting portrayal of President Trump, but what is more disgusting is the FACT that liberals claim to be accepting and inclusive but would NEVER approve of a billboard like this if it were bashing one of their socialist idols!
