Communist Art Depicting Che and Fidel Graces Halls of Library of Congress…

Weasel Zippers

How lovely.

(Weekly Standard) — While the debate about curbing government spending continues, allow me to propose a modest but important cut: the Library of Congress’s Employee Art show. Or can we at least cut out artwork that praises communist revolutionaries?

I was strolling through the halls of the Library’s Madison building — not the magnificent neoclassical Jefferson building across Independence Avenue but its drab, postmodern neighbor — when I came across the corridor containing the employees’ works of art. Most of the items were fairly decent photographs or watercolors, nice contributions to the collection. But in the middle of the hall, I came across this painting, featuring Fidel Castro and Ernesto “Che” Guevara.

…Here we are with our individual states and federal governments looking desperately to make significant cuts to keep from dropping into a black pit of bankruptcy, and an artist’s depiction of two butchers who imposed death, destruction, apartheid, slavery, and a miserably failed economy on Cuba through their socialist/communist ideology and lust for government power is on display in the Library of Congress’s Employee Art show? Are you kidding me?…

Shariah 4 America: The Islamic Demolition of the Statue of Liberty

…The Statue of Liberty, designed by Frederic Bartholdi, stands on Liberty Island in New York Harbor; representing Libertas, the Roman (false) goddess of Freedom, it is symbolic of the rebellious nature of the US constitution that elevates the command of man over the command of God.

In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.

Due to the scale of the task at hand, it is highly likely that rigorous safety checks will need to be employed before the demolition of the Statue of Liberty can commence; thus as a temporary measure, it is proposed that a large burkha is used to cover the statue, thereby shielding this horrendous eye sore from public view as well as sending a strong message to its French creators.

Post demolition, it is recommended that a minaret be built as a fitting replacement, allowing the glorification of God to be proclaimed daily as well as act as a powerful reminder of the superiority of Islam over all other ways of life…

These are the plans for the “New York Minaret” which someone has approved. The site says, “…work will commence shortly…Demolition of the Statue of Liberty is due to begin soon. Explosive charges will be used and so all visitors are advised to steer clear of the building site.”

Fidel and Che celebrated in our Library of Congress? Lady Liberty in a burqa? A minaret in the New York harbor? Over my dead body…Stand up, America! Stand up, and speak out while you still are able!
