Time for the arts to support themselves. They’re workers...just like anyone else.

Wow, that brings back some satisfying memories. Back when we had politicians in the GOP that used to forcefully stand up to the abject waste and utter cultural deviancy that the libs were constantly shoving down our throats. One of the reasons I used to actually support and identify with the Republican Party.

Now we have a Party that tends to cower before any issues regarding the cultural decay and degeneration of the country, from fag-marriage to dope to the poison that comes from the cretins in Hollywood. Which have turned the country into such a grotesque sewer that I even seriously question whether it’s worth trying to save at this point.

Good ideas in this article — that government funding shuts out the free marketplace and only encourages “progressivism” in the arts (duh!); but he needed an editor. Too many words before you get to the point.

Make socio-political statements thru “art” all you desire.
As long the message suits the liberal agenda it is worthy
of support and protection. But criticize the liberal ortho-
doxy and you are not an artist but, rather, a racist, homophobe,
female hating, climate change denier. The concept that your
opponent has the right to express an opinion has no place
in today’s liberal theology.

Show me the place in the Constitution where it says that the federal government should spend millions of dollars on art and artists. I greatly value art, but this is not something the government should pay for.
