Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Painting That Depicts Cops As Pigs Now Hangs In The US Capitol Building

DailyWire is reporting that David Pulphus of St. Louis won first place in the United States Congressional Art Competition last spring.

Here’s the painting in question:

So in the image there are two cops with pig heads pointing their guns at a black wolf, a depiction of Michael Brown nailed to a cross holding the scales of justice, and signs reading “Racism Kills” and “Stop Killing.”

According to Rep. William Lacy Clay, a Democratic congressman from Missouri:

“The painting portrays a colorful landscape of symbolic characters representing social injustice, the tragic events in Ferguson and the lingering elements of inequality in modern American society.”

The St. Louis American reports that between votes on the House floor, Clay offered effusive praise for the painting, saying that “the artwork selected for this year’s winner of the Congressional art competition has to be the most creative expression that I’ve witnessed over the last 16 years.”

Patterson, president of the St. Louis County Police Association, is appalled by the painting:

“This is an extraordinarily disrespectful piece at a minimum…We in the law enforcement community have been continuing to work to build bridges and come to a better understanding with our minority community…and then we have irresponsible leadership from elected officials pouring gasoline on bridges haven’t even finished being built yet…[Rep. Clay is] picking at these wounds that we’re trying to heal.”

The Daily Wire article notes that this isn’t just about calling cops pigs. This painting also continues to spread a narrative of racially motivated violence in the Michael Brown case:

Despite the Michael Brown shooting–the foundation upon which Black Lives Matter is built–being proven false, and despite recent studies suggesting police officers do not go out of their way to kill black men, the “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative persists. Why? Because Democratic politicians like Rep. Clay have an agenda to advance, and they won’t let facts get in their way.

Progressives must maintain the narrative that African Americans are the victims of an intrinsically racist justice system, and that only the Democratic Party cares enough to help. Unfortunately for them, facts have a way of bubbling to the surface. In order to keep reality buried, Democratic politicians and journalists use a simple but effective tactic: false premise repetition.

The “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative is based on a provably false premise, but every time it’s repeated by a politician or media figure as though it were gospel truth, it’s rejuvenated. Repeated enough times, this lie surpasses reality and becomes a kind of dogma that cannot be questioned.

Rep. Clay’s praise of David Pulphus’ painting as a “colorful landscape of symbolic characters representing social injustice, the tragic events in Ferguson, and the lingering elements of inequality in modern American society” is another shot of adrenaline into the heart of a false premise that’s well on its way to becoming untouchable.
