Not so fast Bill Maher

Serial pot smoking liberal asshole Islamophobe and Israeli apologist Bill Maher is taking credit for bringing down Milo the right wing gay Brit.  I'm not sure of Maher's dope addled logic because when the right wing's pet gay was on Maher's show the other night, he was conciliatory and chummy with that revolting pile of garbage.  They laughed and made fun of people who don't like Milo's misogyny, sexism, transphobia, and anti Semitism. They giggled and agreed all that awful shit that was said was just a big joke and that people need to calm down and let hateful people spew hate speech because that's what the racist entitled white founding fathers would have wanted, you know free speech and all that.  

But no.  It wasn't a joke, Maher isn't responsible for bringing anyone down and in fact, Maher is responsible for creating people like Milo because of the way he gladly gives any right winger he can find a platform on his show.  And fuck Maher for claiming to be a champion of free speech when he never ever has any pro Palestinian voices on his show.  

Fuck Bill Maher.  And fuck you too if you support his bullshit.

Martial Raysse

Raysse is a French artist who achieved fame and renown in the 20th century.  He's still alive as I write this and one of his pieces of art recently set a record for having the highest sale price of any living French artist.  He concentrates mainly on the female form and his work is an embodiment of the pop art movement. I love his use of color and the 'ordinary-ness' of his subject matter.

Swedish terror

Trump was right.  There was a terror attack in Sweden last Friday.  

Some dastardly bastard terror group is going after beautiful Swedish women who wear bikinis.

None of them are safe.

Beautiful Swedish women in bikinis are experiencing the theft of their clothes by assorted terrorist groups.

The terrorists won't be happy until all beautiful Swedish women are forced to run around topless.  Damn those sick twisted bastards.  DAMN THEM TO HELL!

Steve Wheeler

I discovered Wheeler when I Googled my real name and the word 'art.'  He was a 20th century artist who died in 1992 who used bold unmodulated colors.  He owes a debt to Cubism, but his work is still striking nonetheless.

Yo, black folks, do me a solid...

Thanks.  I appreciate it.

TN legislator Matthew Hill is a fascist piece of shit

Meet Matthew Hill.  He's a member of the TN legislature and he never met a gun he didn't want to suck off or strap to his micro penis before he fucked someone over, usually the poor.  He wants guns in bars, in state parks, and very probably in the vaginas of uppity women.  He's a frightened manchild who's political career consists of screwing over working class people, shitting on the poor, and making the lives of women miserable.

But all that stuff pales in comparison to what he wants to do now.

Hill now wants to criminalize dissent, take away the free speech from those he disagrees with, and he wants to deny people in TN equal protection under the law.  How does he want to do all of that unconstitutional stuff?  He wants to revoke a demonstrator's right to take action in civil court against someone who hits them with their vehicle if said demonstrator is blocking a street or road.  That's right he wants to take away the right of people in TN to seek redress in civil courts if they get hit while protesting or demonstrating.  This fascist piece of shit hates it when people use free speech he doesn't agree with and he wants people who do use free speech he disagrees with to be hurt, maimed or killed by someone in a car or truck.  He claims to be pro life but the life he's pro on isn't someone who gets hit by a car while demonstrating.

Of course Hill is like all the conservative turds in the cesspool that is the TN legislature, he takes his cues and gets his ideas for legislation from others.  This idea of taking away people's right to demonstrate in the road ways, which was used so effectively by Martin Luther King Jr by the way, came from states where it's being used effectively now, like Minnesota and Missouri.  Hill took time out from rewatching a Jeff Foxworthy video or gay porn or whatever it he watches, and he thought to himself, "That there am are be a good idear, maybe them protesters is gonna be too scared ta protest iffen a few of them git run over.  I'mma make that a law because I hate all them people saying they want rights and that black lives matter.  Whew, all that thinking stuff is hard, I'mma go back to watching tranny porn until ALEC or the NRA calls and tells me what they's wantin' me to do next."

On it's face the law that Hill wants to pass is unconstitutional because it would deprive people of their constitutional right to free speech and it deprives people from equal protection under the law.  And if it somehow passes the corporate drone who is our governor signs it into law, I'll be the first to take him to court to sue to get it overturned.

Hill may have a lifetime gerrymandered seat in the TN legislature but he doesn't scare me.  I've got free speech and hundreds of years of case law behind me.  He's got a boner for criminalizing dissent and speech he disagrees with.  Fuck him, fuck his entitlement, his white male Christian supremacist world view, and his fascism.  And finally, I'm not saying Matthew Hill murders homeless people while dressed as Adolf Hitler, sells their organs on the black market, and makes dildoes out of their bleached bones, but I am saying that he has never denied doing that or offered any proof that he hasn't done it, because after all, when you try to take away people's hard won constitutional rights and protections, then you're capable of just about anything.

Also, when I was 8 yrs old I watched my sister Linda who was 9 get hit and killed by a car.  I can still see her getting hit in my mind every day and I still miss her every day.  So for this piece of shit HIll to try to take away anyone's right to sue in civil courts after being hit by a car, fuck him.  I hope he has the misfortune to see someone close to him get hit and killed by a car.  But knowing what a sack of semen and rotting fecal matter Hill is, he'd probably rush to comfort the driver.

And now a word from Melania

"What you mean I can't make money off fashion and fragrance in my capacity as American first wife?  You mean I fucked this repulsive orange piece of shit for no good reason?  Damn you to hell America."

Chaim Soutine

Chaim Soutine was a 20th century Russian born artist.  He studied painting in Finland and then moved to France where he lived and worked.  He was a contemporary and friend of many modern artists including Modigliani, who painted his portrait twice.  

Soutine was well regarded among his fellow artists and art dealers who recognized his genius. One dealer was so impressed by Soutine's work that he paid him cash for 60 paintings.  Soutine took the cash, ran out in the street in Paris, hailed a cab, and had it take him to Nice, a city on the southern coast of France that was a favorite destination for artists living in France between World War 1 and World War 2. 

He managed to avoid serving in the first world war, which was a minor miracle.  But his Jewish roots caught up to him in Nazi occupied France in the second world war.  Soutine had to stay on the run to avoid getting captured and sent to a concentration camp.  He suffered from some health problems, including ulcers, which went untreated due to having to stay one step ahead of the fascists.  He died of a perforated ulcer in 1943 while hiding in a forest in France. 
Today, some of his work sells for millions of dollars at auction.  And many of his paintings survive in collections and in museums around the world.

But the world was robbed of all the other paintings he would have made if he had not been indirectly killed by the Nazis. Soutine's life and untimely death remind us that fascists not only stole and looted priceless works of art during their years in power in Germany, they also directly and indirectly caused the deaths of artists, both male and female, the world has come to see as modern masters of art.
This is why it's important to keep making art and to keep fighting against all fascists everywhere, both here in the USA in the form of the alt right, white nationalists, and the orange asshole in the White House who wants a ban on Muslims, and those world wide, especially in Europe and the UK. Fascists hate free speech, entertainment, and art, because all those things are used against them. Keep up the fight and keep artists remembering who's lives were cut short by fascists.

Reaction to the Muslim ban

"Can we ban those poutine eatin' hockey lovin' maple syrup squirtin' Canadians too?  They smell funny and they're so healthy, they're up to something.  And they're always welcoming Muslims refugees with open arms.  I bet they're all planning something together."

"I favor this ban only because I'm afraid that if my kids hear about Islam they'll leave behind the hell fire and brimstone kind of Christianity we grew up with and become Muslims, then we'd have to ban them too."

"If we ban Muslims, then who am I going to open fire on when I nut up and start shooting off my automatic machine guns?  I can't very well shoot white folks now can I."

"It's not a problem for me personally, so it's not a problem.  Also, I'm wearing lunch meat underpants."

"Am I the only black person in this post?  I am?  Oh gee thanks for making me speak for all of black America.  No pressure there is there?"

"I hate that material.  It's so bland and ugly.  I'm glad The Orange One is banning Muslin."

"I'm sorry.  I appear to have wandered into this post by accident.  I came here to buy some drugs.  Can you point me to where I can pick up some marijuana or oxycontin?  Thanks a bunch."
