By now all of you have seen the official portrait unveiling of the Obama's and like many of you are wondering....and just like James Comey feigning shock about the released memo are thinking ....THAT'S IT???
I'm not going to soil this blog with the portraits of the Obama's...you can see them here...but you should know WHO the artist is that painted these portraits. Kehinde Wiley has painted black women cutting off the heads of white women....oh wow...how edgy! Which you can also see here....
Kehinde Wiley in an interview with New York Magazine...regarding a painting depicting an "elegant black woman in a long blue dress - the canvas is enormous, eight feet by ten feet- calmly staring down the viewer. In one hand, she holds a knife. In the other , a cleanly severed brunette female head. It's sort of a play on the 'kill whitey' thing."
So....his version of "Kill Whitey"...need I say more? I don't care what the context is because if there was some rightwing painting of President Trump and the artist had paintings of white people beheading black people? The context wouldn't matter to me...it would be wrong.
So I am asking you....what are you willing to accept? Is there a red line that you will not cross? Well, I have reached mine...I don't care how poorly these portraits were done....and poorly they were done.... I have some experience with real artistry as my uncle Gorden Wetmore, has painted Richard Nixon...of all people...I'm starting to believe the Singularity Mike Cernovich speaks of from time to time is true....anyways my uncle painted Richard Nixon...it used to be hanging in the White House but I'm not sure it is anymore.
My uncle is on the far right. Gorden Wetmore. I wish I had a better picture of the portrait he had painted...still working on that. Unlike Kehinde Wiley, you will find no paintings of beheadings of white people but you will find paintings of Israel and Ireland....The Promised Land....
No beheadings....just real life in different parts of the world.
Where will these these "portraits" hang? Certainly not in the White House....but where? If I had my way I'd say nowhere in polite company....what say you?
How about Spirit Cooking? Would that bother you to know the official Obama's Presidential Portrait Artist, Kehinde Wiley, Attended 'Spirit Cooker' Marina Abramovic's Performance In 2013 ???
After all we have been through, after all of the scandals that have been glossed over former President Obama's terms, should we even be surprised of this connection? The visceral connection to evil runs deep...be grateful that President Trump won....no matter what he does or does not do....Trump isn't into spirit cooking or more demonic actions.....we have a little bit of time to save our Republic...but not much
Love Trumps Hate....but....we have to be willing to fight for it......
