Skip to comments.Painting of Cops as Pigs Hung Proudly in US Capitol
Posted on 12/30/2016 3:08:05 AM PST by kevcol
A piece of art depicting police officers as pigs with guns terrorizing a black neighborhood is currently displayed proudly inside our nation's Capitol.
The painting was selected on behalf of Rep. Lacy Clay (D-MO). While it's unclear whether Clay personally selected Untitled #1 as the winner, he offered heavy praise for the controversial painting in a press release

and this is why they lost!
OMG!!!! THAT IS DISGUSTING!!!! TAKE IT DOWN, PAUL RYAN....NOW!!!!
One thing: 21 days, 6 hours, 25 minutes, 20 seconds
That goes for the obama supporting republican majority house who should have never allowed this. It’s why the Republican Party is as done as hillary and the obamas
- Obama Shave
Disgraceful.... but probably Odungo lead
Lacy is a girl’s name
Paul Ryan RUNS the US CAPITOL...he is responsible to take this down....TODAY!!!!
21 more days
Let him pay for his own security detail.
I'm sure Ryan finds that painting personally offensive. After all, Muslims hate pigs...
This SOB succeeded his equally racist father in office.
The “St. Louis American” describes the “artist”, David Pulphus, as a “young African American man”. That is why this garage is even considered art in the first place. I notice there is a beauty shop in the piece, but where is the depiction of looters stealing “their weave”? How come nobody’s pants are hanging below their butts? I also noticed that the depicted “Michael Brown” lost about 250 lbs. Also, none of the buildings are on fire, and the old lady in the car hasn’t been dragged out and beaten yet. This is a perpetual black victim fantasy piece, done with 8th grade talent.
Outrageous.it sickens me
Don’t know,....shows him shooting a wolf.
It’s going to be the longest 21 days that you and I have ever experienced. With the Republican congress hiding in the tall grass Obama can cause a lot of harm and chaos in those 21 days. It will feel like 21 weeks...
shows him shooting a wolf.
I just skimmed over the painting. After seeing your comment I went back and looked more closely.
You’re right! The “cop” is aiming his gun at a creature with a wolf’s head and even a tail!
The painter must have some heavy drugs.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot??????
I am a white conservative and for the longest time could not understand why cops were called pigs. However, after examining where the money goes from the taxpayers, it is obvious who gets the most “slop from the public trough.” With very little oversight, we have allowed the peace officer to evolve into the police officer much like the gestapo of Germany.
Out of fear the American people are allowing this to happen. Out of fear we are giving up basic civil rights and slowly losing our liberties.
