What Isn't Art

Art has been used for millennia to communicate political and religious messages. Some loved it, some hated it, and as with anything, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, which probably explains the continued existence of Madonna as a somewhat viable entertainer.

But this is not art. A suitcase bomb used to kill innocent people. A straight jacket made from the U.S. flag. A stamp with a gun to the President's head. Why do we entertain this crap? Why does this stuff get any play?

In the context of anti-American propaganda, this stuff supports the enemy.

And I suppose that a photo of Hitler might also be considered art by some. But not by American folks. Please display the stuff in Gaza, Ramallah, Riyadh, Aden, Karachi, Paris, Toronto, or some other sewer hole where such stuff is welcome.

Good Americans don't produce this stuff.

And it's not art.
