Numbers 22 and 23 on the list of communist goals entered into the Congressional record back when Congress vigorously opposed communism:
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
The artist, Thomas Houseago, is such a big shot in the art world that he works out of a 25,000 square foot studio. According to the print version of Friday’s Wall Street Journal, the shapeless, awkward, and meaningless grotesquerie above will fetch $400,000.
That’s a real bargain, compared to the $800,000 this one will knock you back:
The work is by Wade Guyton, who is so devoid of creativity that he could not even come up with a title for it.
The point of pretending this crap is art is the same as for all things liberal: to corrode and destroy Western Civilization. There can be no real art — which uplifts, inspires, and would cause us to take pride — so long as museums are full of ugly moronic trash.
This same approach has been applied to most every aspect of our culture, which is how they reduced us to the point that Obama could be democratically elected.
On a tip from Varla.
