Should the National Endowment for the Arts encourage artists to create art on issues being vehemently debated nationally?
That is the question that I set out to discuss a little over three weeks ago when I wrote an article on Big Hollywood entitled The National Endowment for the Art of Persuasion?
The question still requires debate but the facts do not.
The NEA and the White House did encourage a handpicked, pro-Obama arts group to address politically controversial issues under contentious national debate. That fact is irrefutable.
But some have claimed that the invite and passages, pulled from the conference call that inspired the article, were taken out of context. Context is what I intend to establish here.
On August 10th, the National Endowment for the Arts, the White House Office of Public Engagement, and the Corporation for National and Community Service hosted a conference call with a handpicked arts group. This arts group played a key role in Obamas arts effort during his election campaign, as declared by the organizers of the call, and many on the call played a role in the now famous Obama Hope poster.
Much of the talk on the conference call was a build up to what the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) was specifically asking of this group. In the following segment, Buffy Wicks, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, clearly identifies this arts group as a pro-Obama collective and warns them of some specific asks that will be delivered later in the meeting.

Rush discussing this now ... says there are
45 pgs of recorded info and documents.
Beat me by seconds! I couldn’t believe it wasn’t posted yet. Mods...pull my thread please :-)
Oh really? Can you update us on what Rush says? No radio in the office.
I can’t see anyone really being surprised by this...could mean problems for Jarrett, but I don’t see this as the beginning of the fall after reading transcripts.
I mean it makes me want to keep on my toes, but that’s my simple distrust of this whole administration.
I’m not sure Buffy’s guilty; she might have been framed.
Your posting source link is to “Big Government”.
Shouldn’t it be “Big Hollywood?”
Or am I missing something.
What is Rush saying? Didn’t Glenn Beck report this a few weeks ago?
Welcome to communist America.
He covered it minimally, now on another story, but will get back to it.
This is the meat of their propaganda program ... the agenda,
the recordings of it .. etc etc
This is a heck of a good sting, but I doubt it’s going to have anywhere near the impact of the O’Keefe/Giles ACORN tapes. I mean, if you tell most people that the White House was using the National Endowment for the Arts to talk to a bunch of “artists” and try to get them to help push pro-Zero propaganda, they’ll just look at you and say, “yeah, and this is unusual?” Everybody knows that these artsy-fartsy urban Bohemian types are 100% in the tank for Zero. (Well, OK, 95%. 4% are flat-out Communists or anarchists and the other 1% are probably disaffected Paulestinians.)
Now that we’ve got your attention... - Breitbart
You are correct. There is no juicy sex innuendos or good looking women on video talking about prostitution.
However, for congress, this is the justification to defund the NEA once and for all.
He’s describing a wedding party of a Ranger he was coincidentally invited to at theor hotel .. the funny events that occurred when he met the bride, etc. Turns out he couldn’t hear what she was saying to him, he just kept smiling and saying thank you. But he was told after that she’s a Hillary staffer .. half the room were Hillary staffers.
Perhaps. The NEA’s liberal bent has been so obvious for so long, though, I don’t know if this’ll make much difference. It’s like showing somebody a detailed scientific proof that water is wet.
Still, you are correct...more Hannah Giles is never a bad thing.
When I first heard about this I was stunned and even my beeber broke.
The question, how many laws got broken here is a damn good one. This activity is blatantly illegal. On Many levels.
I HOPE OBAMA FRIES FOR THIS.
