Skip to comments.Not Gonna Do It! Margaret Sanger & Hilter Morph Banned from Art Contest
Posted on 10/26/2007 2:07:58 PM PDT by Diago
A reader e-mailed us today urging that the Margaret Sanger Adolph Hitler Morph be entered into the Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest.
However, for several reasons. the morph is clearly ineligible.
1) We believe it falls under the category of a photoshop. Under this year's new rules, photoshops are banned.
2) The sponsor of the contest was instrumental in developing the Morph.
3) It is of zero artistic value.
However, we do have a record number of participants and some very high quality entries so far. And there are still at least two more excellent entries that have not even been posted yet.
If you are keeping score at home, here is a quick run down of what we have so far:
The Anonymous Haikus by Reader of the Heart Mind and Strength Blog
The Catholic Caveman's Entry by the Catholic Caveman
Such a Loving Margaret Sanger by Bill Haley
Ms. Margaret and the Klan by Carrie Tomko
Keep your eye on this blog as we will be posting a few more entries in the upcoming days.
From Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366:
Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)
Rejected. You make it sound like it was censored when you say it was banned.
It may not have artistic value, but it sure the hell has historical and cultural and political issue value!

Oh, and don't forget the humour value. I love seeing the left lampooned!
