When a Democrat Congressman put up a vile, cop-hating painting right in the U.S. Capitol, one GOP House member took immediate action.
Congressman Duncan Hunter, Republican from California took down a controversial painting from the wall of a Capitol complex hallway Friday morning.
The painting by St. Louis student David Pulphus — and sponsored by the violent Black Lives Matter movement — which was selected as a winner of a Congressional art contest in 2016 is about the Ferguson, Missouri anti-police riots and depicts police officers as pigs shooting an unarmed Black kid with his hands up, with Ferguson thug Michael Brown on a cross like Jesus.
The painting was selected to hang in the Capitol by the office of Congressman William Lacy Clay, Democrat from Missouri. Clay is a far-left member of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), and a big supporter of the violent Black Lives Matter movement.
It has hung at the Capitol in a tunnel that connects lawmakers’ offices at the Longworth Building where no member could miss seeing it nearly every day.
Well one Republican Congressman — Rep. Duncan Hunter — had enough of the disgusting “art” and took action today — removing it from the wall and having it sent back to Rep. Clay.
Fox News reported:
A Republican congressman took matters into his own hands Friday and personally removed a painting depicting police officers as pigs that a colleague had allowed to be displayed at the U.S. Capitol complex.
“I was angry,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told FoxNews.com. “I’ve seen the press reporting on this for about a week or so. … I’m in the Marine Corps. If you want it done, just call us.”

YES! That’s what I’m talking about!
And Hunter was joined by 27,000 cops who also asked for it to be taken down:
In an earlier statement calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to remove it, the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the Sergeants Benevolent Association of New York, and the San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose Police Officers Associations said: “This false narrative portrays law enforcement professionals as posing a danger to the very communities we serve. That is untrue and this ‘art’ reinforces this false narrative and is disrespectful on so many levels.”
“False narrative” doesn’t even come close to describing this vile piece of propaganda.
With the St. Louis Arch in the background, the painting clearly is depicting the blood libel of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” that everyone from BLM to Al Sharpton to Barack Obama insisted “gentle giant” Michael Brown said before being shot by a racist cop.
But as a Grand Jury reported, and even then-AG Eric Holder admitted, it was all a lie. Brown never said it, had assaulted Wilson and grabbed his gun in an attempt to shoot the officer, before Wilson regained control and shot Brown. Moreover, just prior to the incident, the “innocent child” Brown — a hulking young man of nearly 6′ 3″ — had violently robbed a convenience store nearby.
We salute Rep. Hunter, and hope the Black Lives Matter stooges in Congress receive his message loud in clear: there’s a new Sheriff in the White House, and America isn’t gonna take this crap any longer.
