Obama removing presidential portraits from White House
Illinois Republican Assembly -- An Affiliate of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies ^ | 5-23-2009 | Illinois Republican Assembly

Posted on 05/23/2009 8:05:13 AM PDT by obamaisandrogynous

President Hussein and Mrs. Hussein are reportedly removing portraits of presidents past from the White House and replacing them with abstract art.

Remember, in Cambodia, when the Khumer Rouge took over, they declared it to be "year one," and removed all references to the past.

Abstract art rather than pictures of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln? Yes, those oppressors, in Obama's mind, represent the stale US past

Aaaarrghh!!! Oh no, now we’re going to post Tweets? I’ve successfully avoided that brain-deadening monstrosity so far. Please DO NOT EVER AGAIN post an “article” that is just a bunch of 140 character rambling inanities.

Is ANYONE surprised by this? Really? I am not the least bit surprised, in fact I predicted it, and that next they will be painting the rooms godawful colors. Read the communist manifesto again, clearly it professes the removal of meaningful art and replacing it with ugly meaningless shapes.

This man IS ANTI AMERICAN!! We knew it before he was even appointed.

Not that I doubt he "could" do this, this is a source from Twitter, not exactly a solid source.

Before I get too vexed about this report, lets see if it is true.

Just because he is putting in ghetto art, (which is bad enough) doesn't mean he is taking down Presidents portraits

45 Planks of the Communist Manifesto

Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

He's the tenant. Tenants have the right to put their own things on the wall. As long as he doesn't damage the old portraits, which presumably are property of the landlord (us).

He's a typical lib narcissist. They don't recognize anything that happened prior to the glorious 1960s, when their hippie generation started remaking the country to suit their warped whims. (That is, unless a recall of something older (slavery and Jim Crow, for instance) helps their agenda. In those instances, they're all over it.) Let's hope the next tenant has a more developed appreciation for the history and heritage of the house he lives in than this one does.

If it’s true, once ascertained, this needs to be broadcast throughout the fruited plains. People are already pissed, this will add more to the list of BS. The dictator and Socialist Congress are not a majority even though they think they’ve defeated the American people already.

It would be nice if this Twitter person would include a link to his/her source. I would have been especially interested in the WSJ reference to the ACLU and Obama. But they don’t care to source items.

Remember to use tinyurl.com to shorten the addy.

But their tweets are useless without them.

Now before you go all half-cocked on this, remember this is from the Republican Assemblies crowd. These goofballs could have gotten this from a NewsMax article or from some talk-show host.

Take NOTHING from the Republican Assemblies Pod People at face value.

So "abstract art" is what our elephant-eared imbecile of a POTUS is calling every one of the portraits of himself replacing all the others, huh.
