Soon to be New Sheriffs in Town, GOP Reps Boehner & Cantor to Smithsonian: Pull Exhibit Featuring Ant Covered Jesus or Else

 

So an ant covered Jesus is what passes as art these days? Not any more as there is soon to be a new Sheriffs in town. The exhibit, “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” includes video images of an ant-covered Jesus on a crucifix, male genitals, naked brothers kissing, men in chains among other so-called art images.

Republican US Reps John Boehner and Eric Cantor tell the Smithsonian to pull the exhibit featuring images of an ant covered Jesus or face the consequences. Soon to be House Speaker Boehner reminded the Smithsonian that he is soon to be Speaker and warned the federally funded institution that it will face serious questions when the Republican Congress considers the next budget.

“American families have a right to expect better from recipients of taxpayer funds in a tough economy,” Boehner’s Spokesman Kevin Smith told CNSNews.com. “While the amount of money involved may be small, it’s symbolic of the arrogance Washington routinely applies to thousands of spending decisions involving Americans’ hard-earned money at a time when one in every 10 Americans is out of work and our children’s future is being threatened by debt.

“Smithsonian officials should either acknowledge the mistake and correct it, or be prepared to face tough scrutiny beginning in January when the new majority in the House moves to end the job-killing spending spree in Washington,” Smith said.

When asked to clarify what exactly Boehner meant by calling on the Smithsonian to “correct” their mistake with the exhibit, Smith responded in an email that Boehner wanted the exhibit “cancelled.”

Cantor, meanwhile, said the exhibit should be “pulled.”

It appears that the Smithsonian has blinked. As reported at Big Hollywood, the Smithsonian has pulled the exhibit. Also reported at Fox News, a video depicting Jesus on a crucifix covered in ants will be removed from an exhibit at the museum. Intentionally sacrilegious? Oh, but it was ok to unintentionally do so? Because who would ever think that having an ant covered Jesus would ever be considered sacrilegious.

“I regret that some reports about the exhibit have created an impression that the video is intentionally sacrilegious,”the statement read. “In fact, the artists’s intention was to depict the suffering of an AIDS victim. It was not the museum’s intention to offend. We are removing the video today. The museum’s statement at the exhibition’s entrance, ‘This exhibition contains mature themes,’ will remain in place.”

So these so-called artists thought they were being cutting edge and daring. However, as stated by the Jawa Report, if these artists really wanted to be daring and controversial, they’d create an ant-covered Quran exhibit. Imagine what would have happened to the artists if it were an ant covered Mohamed? However, if they ever created such art, they would have their heads cut off. It’s much easier and safer to sacrilege Jesus.

      If this is the type of garbage the Smithsonian is willing to spend money to exhibit, I think it is time to pull their funding for at least a year.

      An investigation needs to be made into how such an exhibit was funded and the responsible parties should loose their job.

      It’s about time. We seem to hear about these so called “art” exhibits more an more. Let these people get out and get a real job and peddle their trash on their off time.

      Congratulations! We must protect the nation from the diseased minds of artists and creative people!
      Hitler, Stalin and Mao agree: censorship works!
      Freedom of speech? NOT IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!!!

      SM: More comments from the cluless. To compare this country to that of Nazi and Communism has no concept of history. Sounds good I guess though. Please buy a vowel.

      there goes freedom of expression.
      ___________
      SM: Nope, thats the same old tired argument from those who peddle smut as art. With tax payer $’s, there are limits.

      How come these artists do not believe in seperation of Church and State, they do they rest of the time.

      I will make my challenge again … oh you edgy artists who find it so easy to blaspheme Jesus … let’s see you brave souls do the same with Mohammed. Didn’t think so, I guess you like your head.

      These artists have every right to create whatever they want, but not on my dime. I’m paying for it, I can tell them what to create. If they tried to sell this crap in a free market they would starve to death.
      ___________
      SM: You got it Rusty. They are free to do what ever they want with their own $’s and funding. The LEFT will say that the exhibit was funded privately. BS!!! What about all the people and the maintenance of the building. Sorry, but if you artists want to promote crap, do it with your own money.

      …the arts should be funded by private individuals and/or corporate foundations, NOT the government.

      Let ‘em express and be creative, but let the private sector do it. Nothing wrong with that direction.

    8. Dolf on December 1st, 2010 12:15 pm

      I agree with you on that.

    9. numbersgirl on December 1st, 2010 4:22 pm

      I’m sick and tired of my country, my values,and my God getting trashed daily and on MY DIME! Bravo SM -
      challenge these jerks to portray Mohamed this way. This is not art – this is garbage.

    10. ffoulkes on December 1st, 2010 10:13 pm

      i’m not at all a fan of publically-funded art, but, particularly as there are buildings full of anti-islamic ‘art’, it’s enjoyable seeing christians writhe when they reap what they’ve sown.

    11. Scott on December 2nd, 2010 11:02 am

      Really #10…care to provide proof of GOVERNMENT FUNDED buildings with anti-islamic art? Prove it. If it’s a privately owned building they can do what they want…did you miss the point of the whole discussion?

      Oh, you’ve got something against Christians? There are no Christians writhing, reaping or sowing anything.

      The problem is ANTI-Christians such as yourself (btw, Christians founded this country, NOT Islam) who come over here and try to force upon us with your socialist leftist puke libtards sharia law! Screw you.

      This country would be better off without ALL islamic people. THEY ALL hate us period. They may smile and be nice to your face; but behind closed doors in private with their own; you bet they talk about how much they hate us; even though they can’t get the opportunities in their dirt hole countries that they can get HERE!

    12. Scott on December 2nd, 2010 1:53 pm

      BTW #10 – I SPIT on Mohammed; Allah or whatever you sacafice your sheep, cows, or whatever too.

      Bunch of barbarians! Just look at the Middle East; stonings, hangings and all the men over there and I know this for a fact from my neighbor who traveled to these places; are child touchers and he said its quite obvious and out in the open. Think about it: why do they despise women? Because they are G-A-Y! Any culture that hides or threatens or beats; the greatest creation of all; a woman; are just a bunch of loonbirds!
