this little gem while surfing the 'nets. In some circles, the definition of "free speech" is evidently "limiting freedom of expression that bothers me and makin' sure them filthy fags and trannies stay in the closet".I found
Editor:NEWSFLASH: THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS ARE A BUNCH OF COMMIE ANTI-AMERICAN PINKOS; TRUE ART ALWAYS AGREES WITH ME AND MY FAR-RIGHT BELIEFS. CENSORSHIP IS FREEDOM! P.S. JOCKS RULE, NERDS DROOL.
I am concerned about this current trend among “artists” to disrespect the conservative Christian values that our fathers, brothers and sons have fought and died for. The disrespect that these “creative” types have for the core moral fiber of our freedom-loving society is tantamount to high treason. Television, motion pictures, literature, plays, music and visual arts have all given rise to anti-American propaganda that is aimed at one target audience, alone — our children.
This is an abomination of our free-speech rights that cannot be allowed to continue. Imagine a generation of children growing up with a Green Day view of life that insinuates that our elected leaders, chosen by the voting majority, are nothing more than “American Idiots.” What about the Hollywood agenda to promote socialist-leaning candidates and anti-war-on-terror movies like “Syrianna” and Michael Moore’s disturbing pro-al-Qaida propaganda films? What about the preponderance of alternative lifestyle movies such as “Brokeback Mountain” and “TransAmerica”? This trend needs to be stopped immediately before our great nation succumbs to moral ambiguity. The malleable minds of our children are at stake.
My suggestion for solving this problem is simple: cut tax dollars for arts funding in our public schools. The arts are a breeding ground for anti-American sentiment that cannot be tolerated in our post- 9/11 world. Paintings of trees and placid scenes of natural beauty are sadly being replaced by images of President Bush as a buffoonish, uncomprehending “American Idiot.” Worse yet, these neo-artists depict our sacred religious icons in unspeakable ways that I will refrain from describing. Our kids are being brainwashed by these left-wing Nazis who pretend to be cool and trendy. I, for one, do not want my tax dollars to pay the salaries of leftist propaganda fomenters.
The money spent on arts programs, theater productions, speech league competitions and other “questionable value” expenditures could be better used to fund sports-based programs. These programs teach children to be a team player. They prepare kids for a life as a co-worker, solid citizen, and, if necessary, as a soldier to help fight the war on terror. Statistically, children who excel at sports do better in life than those who paint hateful pictures.
Do the right thing. Call your representative and demand that art programs be cut from our public schools. The fragile minds of our greatest resource are at risk.
