Do you remember when conservatives were considered to be the cultural spoil sports?  Yeah, me either.

Here’s the latest in the liberals-messing-up-everything-for-everbody saga.  Now, the Guggenheim Museum has received threats of physical violence if they don’t pull pieces of art that certain left-wing nutcases don’t like.   Threats of violence are strictly the tactic of the left in America.  

The 3 works which caused the controversy were supposed to be included in the exhibition, “Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World.” However, critics said they promoted cruelty to animals.  Why?  Who knows why liberals think anything anymore, amirite? One of the pieces of art was called “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other,” which depicted footage of pit bulls on treadmills.  I guess animals exercising is enough to rile up the left now.  Here’s a statement from the Museum:

“Out of concern for the safety of its staff, visitors, and participating artists, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum has decided against showing the art works Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other (2003), Theater of the World (1993), and A Case Study of Transference (1994) in its upcoming exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World. Although these works have been exhibited in museums in Asia, Europe, and the United States, the Guggenheim regrets that explicit and repeated threats of violence have made our decision necessary. As an arts institution committed to presenting a multiplicity of voices, we are dismayed that we must withhold works of art. Freedom of expression has always been and will remain a paramount value of the Guggenheim.”

Dismayed.  Yep, that’s about right.  That’s what leftists are doing to all of America, Guggenheim, so get in line.

Whatever you think of these pieces of art, remember, eventually you will be targeted as well… unless, of course, you’re willing to think what they think, say what they say, watch what they watch, eat what they eat, and do what they do.  This is not about art, and it’s not about animals.  It’s about control.  The left in America believes that their self-perceived moral superiority gives them the right to control us. 

All of us.
