THE Dutch were debating the limits of freedom of expression last week after an artist who photographed gay men wearing masks of the prophet Muh-am-mad was forced into hiding and her work removed from a museum exhibit.
Woman artist gets death threats over gay Mus-lim photos
She said that by photographing gay Iranian exiles in masks of Muh-ammad, the founder of Is-lam, and A-li, his son-in-law, she had wanted to expose a “hypocritical” attitude towards homosexuality in countries such as Iran, where men can be hanged for homosexual conduct.
“They condemn homosexuality but in countries like Iran or Saudi Arabia it is common for married men to maintain relations with other men,” said Hera. “Works of art can be provocative. It is not an artist’s job just to paint flowers. Art should shine a light on social issues.”
Ah yes. Guess who have their knickers in a twist again?
Yup my friends. Another installment from the world’s longest-running grievance theater.
The poor Muzlims with their being seen in such a “negative light” and all.
Funny how bloodbaths, issuing death threats, blowing up trains, bombing hotels, mutilating womens’ sex-ual organs, throwing people off of rooftops, beheading anyone who disagrees and waging jeeeeehad against the whole free world will do that.
I wonder what the Peace & Love people have to say bout this huh.
Why can’t we just appease them, right?
After all my friends, appeasment, just like Socialism, has worked so swimmingly well everywhere else it has been tried. Not.
Where are the Libs and all the vacuous Hollyweird actors defending this “artist”?
We all know the answer to that.
Fascinating isn’t it how Leftards who regularly find the slightest fault in democratic Western societies compete with one another to provide glib and pat rationalizations for the cold blooded terrorist murderers of 9/11.
Shame on us Americans. We and our arrogant American global power deserved “payback”, and Muzlims who deliberately kill civilians are legitimate “combatants” with worthy and credible grievances.
The diminished mental capacity of these libs is underwhelming to say the least. Nothing fails quite like failure eh.
Fighting tyranny and totalitarianism is a complex issue.
So let’s be honest. Libs are on the side of tyranny.
What passes for political courage in this country is revolting. Actors and other political idiots will bring thunder-and-lightning attention to their pathetic “cause” of the week, and the sheep all obligingly follow.
The Leftards view the First Amendment which privileges and values expression in and of itself, independently of any consequence the speech might have….but not when it comes to expression about Muzlims.
Then we find words like: “offensive”.
P-o-rnog-raphy, which systematically dehumanizes women, doesn’t “offend”.
Anti-semitism is not an affront.
Christian bashing doesn’t rub them the wrong way.
Quite the contrary.
Libs have their “special interest groups”; First Amendment heroes, who actually gain status by uttering the most despicable and vilest statements that can be imagined.
Thier “expressions” are designed to cause physical harm, embarrassment, and psychological damage to others, but no matter……….all of a sudden: That’s free speech.
Who will be championing the rights of this artist Soo-reh Hera?
Don’t hold your collective breaths my friends.
All the gutless wonders are hiding under the table, bent over with their tails between their legs, yet again……….cowering in the face of Izlam.
Hey Lefties, perhaps your should remember the words of Joan Rivers:
If God wanted us to bend over he’d put diamonds on the floor.
