Artists to Relocate California School Mural of Aztec Holding Trumpís Severed Head, Heart
Breitbart ^ | 5/7/2018

Posted on 05/07/2018 5:05:10 AM PDT by Altura Ct.

Artists in Chula Vista, California, who painted a school mural depicting an Aztec warrior carrying the severed head of President Donald Trump on a spear have decided to change the mural after a storm of protest. The mural also depicted the warrior holding a human heart — presumably, that of the president. The image recalls well-documented rituals of human sacrifice among the Aztecs, who are also thought to have eaten their victims.

The mural was painted several days ago and then immediately covered up after local news reporters learned of it. Artist Sasha Andrade Mercado posted images of the mural to social media regardless, decrying what she called censorship.

Several days later, the mural has been repainted to remove the offending image.

A report by local ABC News affiliate 10 News indicates that the artists intend to repaint the mural of Trump elsewhere in the city.

Mercado posted a note on Facebook on Sunday, indicating the mural was moved due to threats to the school:

We decided to change the mural because there were threats made to the school from “white supremacist” and threats to the kids, we were just going to adjust the mural but when things got out of control and the school started receiving threats and putting the students at risk we decided to change it completely , other media outlets started to enter school property and not being nice about it for example KUSI News John Soderman walked in the schools reception demanding to see the mural with no respect what so ever they also did not do their research and gave out my name and my images without my permission and because of that is why I started to get hate threats.

Mercado concluded: “We will never give up to fighting for our rights and fighting to end this racist country that this ‘president’ has created!”

I am still amazed at the cognitive dissonance these people had. If there was a mural where Obama was switched with President Trump, or Hillary, or Che, what would be the reaction?

I like the idea about Che, I wonder if my artist son would do that up for me?

Patriots concluded: “We will never give up fighting for our rights under the Constitution to declare that people like Artist Sasha Andrade Mercado should be prosecuted for fomenting violence and sedition towards a legally elected government.

In addition; the artist claimed threats to the kids and to the school. I call BS. The FBI and other investigatory agencies would be all over that like bees on honey.

Watching that great movie The Magnificent Seven the other night it reminded me that this country has always had major trouble with Mexican bandits. At least in the old days, we fought them off. Now we bring them in and celebrate them and allow their disgusting culture to dominate our schools.

Can’t paint a picture of a gun while in school.
Can’t paint a picture of a rebel flag for a school team.

But you CAN paint a racist mural with school support for brown supremacist Aztlan reconquistas making the “South” rise again by cutting off the head of the President???

Un-American activities on parade.

Fake charter school created by Soros-funded radical Mexican anti-American hate groups, funded by state and Federal taxpayer dollars, and which provides a front for mostly adult male illegal alien invaders falsely claiming “Dreamer” status.

>>Artist Sasha Andrade Mercado posted images of the mural to social media regardless, decrying what she called censorship.

And Socialist Networking Media did not suspend her account for such hate and violence and racism on display?

How queer fakebook, twits-ster, et al are.

Amazing (yet expected) double-standard.

If any “artist” had used an effigy of Pres. Obama representing assassination, beheading or murder, that “artist” would be sitting in prison today.

In all honesty, just making an effigy of Pres. Obama, using his natural skin pigment (brown) would have been labeled “Racist” and once again, the “artist’ would be rotting in jail at this moment...

Oh no, even rodeo clowns are forbidden from wearing Obama masks. Bush, Reagan, Trump masks (and pictures) are OK.

The only proven threat and racism in this story is from the artist.

So its ‘white supremacist’ who disapprove of the painting of an Aztec with Trump’s head on a spear? Pound sand wetback.

OK. Want to stir the pot. Put together $10,000 and start an Obama art contest. The prize of $10,000 goes to the artist who best depicts Obama’s true vile nature. All entries become the property of the sponsors who will have a well guarded exhibition of the entries and the grand winner. Charge $5 admission fee. Art for and by the people.

Good Lord, did the artist go past the 5th grade? No punctuation or capitalization or coherent thought in that diatribe.
