Congressional Black Caucus Decides To Rehang Race Baiting - Hateful Police As Pigs Painting
By: Dr. Jake Baker - TapWires News Service
It is sad but true that the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) an ultra-liberal race based group on Capitol Hill has rehung a painting which depicts police officers as despoiling racist swine on Capitol Hill.
As one might imagine the painting elicited both complaints and disappointment from police groups and their officers, both black and white, who appropriately found the painting offensive and slanderous. The racially-charged painting which has been rehung was taken down by congressman Duncan Hunter of California.
The news of the CBC’s intentions was made public by a January 9 tweet from Fox Business Network contributor Charles V Payne.

Congressional Black Caucus to rehang "Police as Pigs" painting tomorrow saying: "It’s about defending the Constitution.”
Lacy Clay a Missouri Democrat originally hung the police as pigs painting, which depicted law enforcement mistreating minorities in Ferguson, Missouri. As you recall the local thug Mike Brown had just robbed a convenient store and decided to beat up a police officer on his way home. He was shot in self-defense, but lies and race-baiting activists whipped a crowd into a frenzied mob, which devolved into what we now know as Ferguson.
“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,” Rep. Hunter said after he removed the offensive painting from the wall.
Hunter also said that he was approached by numerous members of the Capitol Police who expressed dismay at the paintings inclusion in the art work submitted by the nation’s high schoolers to the Congressional Art Competition.
Congressman Hunter reminded Rep. Clay can keep putting it up, but that he, Hunter, can also keep taking it back down.
One police union has termed the painting “reprehensible and repugnant.”
The leftists at the CBC, though, are claiming they are replacing the panting because of “the Constitution.” Here is their reasoning.
“The rehanging of this painting for public view represents more than just protecting the rights of a student artist, it is a proud statement in defense of the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which guarantees freedom of expression to every American,” a statement by the CBC said. The statement also noted the offensive painting had been “removed without permission or proper authority” by Rep. Hunter.
Of course, what the CBC does not mention is, that while all are free to speak their mind we are not required to mindlessly accept what they say or do … and that applies to racist hateful artwork as well.
As a reply to Congressman Clay’s tweet announcing his and the CBS’s intention to rehang the offensive painting, a fellow tweeter noted for Clay that the family of a recently murdered Africa American police officer out of Orlando might not be too appreciative of the Congressional Black Caucus’ use of the Constitution as an excuse to continue the race bating hate-mongering.Congress, Race Baiting, Rep Duncan Hunter, Hateful , Duncan Hunter, Rep Lacy Clay, Art Work, Lacey Clay
