You can take the Congressman...

...out of "the hood", but...insert alt text here

On January 6th, it came to the attention of the nation that a painting was hanging in the Cannon Tunnel on Capitol Hill which depicted police officers as pigs who are brutalizing black citizens.

Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter took the painting down, calling it offensive, and set off a battle which is more fitting of a middle school lunchroom than the halls of Congress.
Which is also why even lifelong Democrats held their noses and voted for Trump. People are sick of these "professional agitators" purporting to speak for them.
Earlier this week Representative Lacy Clay (who, incidentally is both black and responsible for hanging the painting) told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “Yes, some people find it offensive. I don’t find it offensive.
In fact, Clay is so much of a fanboy, he will be rehanging the painting back in a very public location.
Congressional Black Caucus and Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., whose office for months had sponsored the display of the student artwork, announced that Clay and CBC members will “rehang” the piece Tuesday morning in the Cannon Tunnel.
You have to wonder how Representative Clay would feel about the painting if it depicted the black protesters as monkeys.

This is the legacy of Hussein Obama, whom history will inevitably come to regard as "The Great Divider."

I would not hang this ghetto rat picture with historic American art but give it a special nook for "radical hoodlum culture" and hang it over the capitol's public urinals.
