Considering the terrorist acts they have committed to advance “animal rights,” you would think that moonbats at least have the redeeming quality of kindness to animals. They don’t always. San Francisco — a city named after the patron saint of animals but now run entirely by the left-wing lunatic fringe — is blowing $750,000 of taxpayer money on a commission for Tom Otterness, a Brooklyn artist who has passed off killing a dog as art.
In June, the board of directors of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency approved a contract with Otterness for 59 bronze sculptures to fill three levels of the proposed subway’s Moscone station.
Michael Vick’s notorious pit bull activities earned him a friendly phone call from the president, so why wouldn’t killing a dog land an artist a contract? But San Franfreakshow bureauweenies claim they didn’t know about Otterness shooting a dog — despite 11,209 people signing a petition against him earlier this year. In their defense, our liberal rulers are rarely aware of what’s going on outside their castles.
Otterness’s artistic vision may have spawned a new genre. Readers may recall that Costa Rican artist Guillermo “Habacuc” Vargas tied up a dog and left it to starve to death in front of art connoisseurs, allowing them to participate in the sophisticated profundity of making a helpless animal die in slow agony.
