Rep. (stands for "Repulsive") Lacy Clay (Duh-Mo.) is the congressman whose office allowed this piece of crap to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol complex.
So it took a person with respect for law enforcement to take matters into his own hands, and that person turned out to be Rep. (stands for Representative) Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) who removed the painting.
"I was angry," Hunter said. "I've seen the press [reporting] on this for about a week or so . . . I'm in the Marine Corps. If you want it done, call us."
Hunter explained that he walked over to the crap-work Friday morning with several colleagues and unscrewed it from the wall. He then delivered it to the office of Clay, probably hoping the pantywaist would confront him over the painting, which was done by a low information high school student that won Clay's annual Congressional Art competition.
The fact that the painting won Clay's competition should tell normal Americans all you need to know about the leftist twerp. In spite of the fact that the piece drew outrage from many law enforcement organizations and fellow lawmakers, Clay didn't care. Let's hope he needs a cop in a hurry some day soon.
Whether the painting will remain out of sight where it belongs is uncertain. "Lacy can put it back up, I guess, if he wants to . . . but I'm allowed to take it down," Hunter said.
Clay's office has not responded to the media at this time.
Over 27,000 law enforcement professionals protested the display, calling it a "reprehensible, repugnant and repulsive" painting in the hallway of the Capitol.
Ron Hernandez, president of the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs was "very pleased," and said "At a time of our country facing rising crime and a shortage of those willing to work the streets as police officers and deputy sheriffs, we need to make it clear that depictions of law enforcement officers as pigs in our Nation's Capitol is not acceptable."
The painting shows police officers as pigs in uniform aiming their guns at African-American protesters. Above them, two birds, a black one and a white one, are fighting and a black protester is holding a scale of justice and is being crucified.
How lovely, and how sensitive of Clay, who is obviously misguided or pandering for the black vote, to allow that to hang in the Capitol.
Hunter said that he's friends with Clay and calls him a "great guy." Then said, "But you've got to respect our men in uniform and what they do."
I think Clay should also be removed by the voters, but he probably won't be.
