An art gallery in Portland, Oregon, removed a window drawing that depicts President Donald Trump being beheaded ISIS style. The horrific image shows a man whose face is concealed holding Trumps head with one hand. In the other hand, he is holding a knife to the throat of Trump, who is bleeding profusely from his nose as well as his slashed neck. The image has the words F*** TRUMP underneath it. The cartoon Trump is seen wearing a pin of a burning American flag on his lapel.
The founder of One Grand Gallery in the Northwest city told KPTV-TV that he took down the controversial drawing after threats from Trump supporters and a request from his landlord. The image faces a public street and Sidewalk and was visible to passersby. The founder of the gallery said that he eventually took down the image because people...are responding with such anger and violence.

On Facebook, the gallery posted the illustration with the caption: 'The same people offended over a "death threat" are the same people upholding death threats &violence. Irony.'
That post was then deleted.
Pictures of the image went viral on social media, prompting widespread reaction.
The blowback has been so fierce that even nearby businesses that had nothing to do with the drawing say theyve been receiving angry phone calls.
It's been a crazy, crazy morning, said Dane Johnson, who works at an automotive shop a floor above the art gallery.
I've had threats to have rocks thrown through the window. I've had threats that we're never going to do business with you again. The threats have come from people nationwide, Johnson said.
By Tuesday morning, the image was scraped off the window facing the street, but the same illustration could be seen hanging inside.
One Grand Gallerys Instagram page features a number of provocative anti-Trump drawings and illustrations.
One image shows a person giving the middle finger to a Trump building in Las Vegas.
Another mocking image shows Trump with his hair made to appear disheveled and infinitely bigger than it really is.
The beheading illustration is similar to a photo from last year in which comedian Kathy Griffin is seen holding up a doll which looks like Trump's severed head.
The image was so shocking that Griffin was widely criticized. She also was forced to cancel professional gigs after she was condemned.
I know we conservatives said Obama was a novice, idiot, shouldn’t be in the WH, etc. But I cannot remember images of him being hung, or burned alive, etc. at any time unless my memory fails me. What’s happening now??!! Blows my mind.
Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.
Bet there were no death threats just outraged people and he couldn’t believe it.
The leftists made an example of a rodeo clown to suppress any “insult” to their god the Fraud.
Strange to find a business hellbent on seeing their building vandalized or destroyed displaying offensive window displays.
Cowardly POS thought this would make him a big man among his liberal friends.
Dear “art” gallery owner. Do one like that for the founder of the religion of peace. Report back to me what happens to you.
Disgusting. I hope you lose your job and the “art” gallery is forced to close.
For 8 years, Obama weaponized the Federal government to CRUSH people who tried to fight back against the Left.....Now, President Donald J. Trump comes along and shows us that we DON’T HAVE TO BE BULLIED anymore and it is causing the Left to lose their minds.
“Trump comes along and shows us that we DONT HAVE TO BE BULLIED anymore and it is causing the Left to lose their minds.”
You have to be correct. I’m 54 years old and this is by FAR the worst I’ve EVER seen the left. I remember when they held flowers and sang peace to the world songs. WTH has happened to them? They weren’t so bad.... :(
scratch the surface of the majority of “liberals” and you will find an ISIS style fanatic who would just as soon kill the people who dare disagree with them. In 2008, I watched as people I thought were really nice people, turn into foaming at the mouth hate-filled people who viciously attacked Palin, calling her every name in the book, and even advocating that she be killed. In 2015 onwards, I seen the same people who despised Palin, turn their vicious hatred on Trump. I just can’t figure out how people can fixate all their hatred, and there seems to be a bottomless well of hatred in so many of them, on a single person or group of people. They must be really sick, and soulless people.
Violence. Yeah, sure.
Tell you what. Put the same picture with Obumagabe being beheaded. That will get you some real, not imagined, violence.
Well said! Worth repeating...

Andrew Klavan wrote about this phenomenon a few days ago. See "Why Leftists Become Thugs," PJ Media, July 13, 2018.
This “art” is a window into mind of the godless Leftist.
I’m about that age, and I think they just hid it better in the 80’s when they were fighting Reagan. They knew that their unhinged rantings would not win over Americans. Now there are fewer Americans and the unAmericans are singing to their choir, and are more open. But I think it will backfire. Do suburban liberals really want to be associated with that crap?
one, the FakeNewsMSM is never outraged. in fact, they often portray Trump supporters who object as being the violent ones.
two, the authorities, including Intel agencies, do not hold anyone to account for threats of violence towards the President.
Or put up a picture of Mohammed, even without being beheaded. That will get your place burned down in a heartbeat.
Wanting to see their own building vandalized.....
Just another form of virtue signaling.
Burn, Portland, burn.
