Demotivational Poster: National Endowment For The Arts

Last week, Sarah Palin pissed off the liberal media (what else is new?) by claiming that the National Endowment for the Arts was “frivolous”. Of course, she never said that art, or even art-funding, was frivolous; but to moonbats, she might as well have, and openly confess that she was an uncultured swine—a Philistine!

According to their logic, if the government doesn’t do it, no one will. Without the NEA, there would be no art. Without the Department of Education, there would be no education. Without PBS, there would be no Sesame Street. Without the military, there would be no national defense. (Scratch that. The military is the only thing about government moonbats hate.)

Of course, Ms. Palin has a point. Just perform a Google search and you’ll see why Palin and others are less than pleased about the “art” funded with our tax dollars. Crucifixes submerged in urine. Bullwhips inserted into men’s anuses. Masturbation as stage performance. Sadists carving into human backs onstage. In the words of Neal Boortz, the NEA is welfare for artists who can’t sell their art in the free market.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for art, and as a free speech advocate, I think art should be controversial and not be subject to unnecessary censorship—which is why art should be left to the private sector, where individuals have the choice of what art they wish to fund, rather than the public sector, where they are forced to fund all  art, even that which they find distasteful.
