A painting hangs in the halls of Congress, the People’s House, that depicts police officers as pigs pointing their pistols at African-Americans. The painting is part of a student art competition and put on display by Missouri Democrat Lacy Clay.
After receiving complaints from law enforcement agencies, California Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter took action. He removed the painting from the wall and returned it to Clay’s office.
Congressman Clay and the Congressional Black Caucus rehung the painting. Republicans again removed it and returned to Clay’s office. Clay returned the painting where it was again removed by Republicans and returned to Clay’s office. Clay took it back and hung it up again. Clay is attempting to file charges for theft.
This painting is a disgrace to our nation and those who serve in law enforcement. It is yet one more last gasp of left wing lunacy. Speaker Paul Ryan and Republicans need to put an end to this sideshow. This painting needs to come down and stay down.
The Congressional Black Caucus is supporting and protecting the painting. My congressman, Sanford Bishop, is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. He represents himself as a proven leader, yet there is silence from his office.
It is time to show some real leadership, Congressman Bishop. Your constituents in Southwest Georgia see this as a disgrace and embarrassment. Will you stand up and speak up for us, or will you continue to be a puppet for left wing lunacy?
