    I must admit that when I first heard about the National Endowment for the Arts conference call to enlist the arts community in propagandizing the White House’s agenda, I was a little mystified as to why it was so controversial. After all, the NEA, through its funding choices, has been actively undermining American values for many years. Way back in 1986 we were treated to the scandal of Andres Serrano getting $15,000 from the NEA for his mediocre photo of a plastic crucifix in his own urine – “Piss Christ.” That is just one of a myriad of egregious examples of NEA funding going to support dubious “art” that functions solely to corrode the fabric of civilized society.

    Sure, the NEA gives money to major established arts organizations – symphonies, ballet companies, repertory theater groups, and the like — but that is how they maintain their veneer of staid respectability, all the while promulgating their Leftist, nihilistic agenda through their smaller grants.

    Another red herring for the right wing. They are a bunch of fucking artists for gods sake.

    Did the Bush Administration appropriate funds for the NEA? Did the Republican Congress under Clinton? If you're going to be upset at the odd spending of your Tax dollars, be mad across the board . . . not just at "Obama" and for partisan purposes.

    I have always been against the government wasteful funding of this BS.. along with much more BS government spending

    I did not point this only on Obama or as some DEM or REP thing.. simply that people should be concerned when their tax dollars are going to this shit
