Strangle little puppies to death to protest killings of sled dogs. That is an utterly deranged mental process. And sadly, people would have paid to go and watch it.

One of the worst I've read about was an "artist" in South America who had a dog chained up in a gallery and let it slowly starve to death. I think it was given water to prevent kidney failure so the slow death and suffering would be drawn out. Lots of visitors to the gallery and not one attempted to help the poor dog.

Could you imagine someone protesting abortion with the killing of babies? Of course not. Because it isn’t really about the death of the dogs. It’s about the vanity of ‘caring more than thou’ and making a display of such - in it’s own sick twisted way.

What is has always been except that the general grace of God has been extended over all of us for a very long time. God is lifting his hand of mercy and giving evil a fuller reign - for a time.

Wow.

I wonder if the left will come out in support.

And it’s getting worse and worse. By the “artists” line of thinking, nuking a city would be a good way to protest nukes.

OMG. I am getting too damned old. I remember a world in which this would not happen. WTF? The kiss of a puppy is so very sweet. How could anyone do harm to such a dear creature?

"The World" has always been this way.

It is just getting more blatant about it these days.

I know, I feel the same way myself and I was born in 1966. Cruelty aside for one split second, how in Hades is starving and/or strangling a dog/puppy seen as art? The Mona Lisa is art. The Copper statue of the late Pittsburgh Mayor Caliguiri in front of the City-County Building here in Pittsburgh is art. Even a 5 year old who draws a picture with a crayon is art. However, killing animals is not art, it is just an excuse for someone to be cruel, period. Whoever does this, there is a side of me that would like to respond in kind with a 2x4 and call it art. B-P

Update on my post about the starved dog. It was Costa Rica, not South Africa. The artist did have a dog on stage a few hours a day, but he fed it and gave it water. It didn’t die, but escaped one morning.

Oh my God, what you cannot be true. You need to provide a citation for that.

This German man is demented, he needs to be put in a psych ward if not jail.

I’m against robbery, am I going to demonstrate that by robbing people?

Sick bastard to do something like this. I wonder if any of the puppies Obama savored in his youth were ever strangled and that they were put down by ethical means. Obamas favorite plate may be strangled puppy, a German dish, garnished with a side of Himmler beans and doused generously with Goebbels sauce. I hear that dish may give you GAS.

I am so mad right now I feel like drowning another Obama doll.

Hey, if he loses his election, Ovomit and this guy could form an act. He could kill them and Obama could eat them.

the performance was to take place this week at a small theatre in Spandau.

As I recall, Spandau was where the prison was that we locked up many of the Nazi war criminals who didn't get hanged.

This so-called 'artist' deserves some time behind bars if he ever actually does something like this.

It's amazing to me how many freaks are out there pretending to be 'artists.'

It said the German artist was not identified. Why not? People that would do this need to live with it and face the facts forever.

No I don’t see it as right or left but pure evil.

Ahhhh, but in there lies ‘the rub’. It’s all about ‘moral relativity’ with these sickos. “What is ART?” they ask. If it evokes emotions such as outrage...repulsion...etc., all the better. It’s all part of the ‘play’. ‘Challenging one’s thinking and upbringing and (their perception)...’how we are raised’. They want us stripped of all traditions and values that have been taught by our families.

You see it on college ‘campii’ every day.

If I’m not mistaken, it’s in the ‘Communist Goals’.

Basically......ANYTHING GOES.

Hurting an animal is a sin. These poor creatures are G-d’s creation,too,and they deserve love and respect.

I want to break down in tears. This makes me sick to my stomach.

“The lunatic is on the grass.
The lunatic is on the grass.
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs.
Got to keep the loonies on the path.

The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.”

There was a time when the possessed where housed so they would not hurt themselves.

They have been released now so that they can hurt others.

Dan Savage has taken it one step further....”Good Pedophiles”.

The emancipation of evil.

Coming to a street near you.

Initially the rational mind is horrified, eventually it can’t resist submitting to and accepting the world around it......

But, the mind of Christ can resist.

Can’t anyone detect journalism fraud anymore, around here? There was never going to be a “performance.” He just wanted the press to make his case FOR him.
