A Democrat Representative, Lucius Clay had a painting contest and the winning painting, depicting a cop as a pig, was hung in the Capital Building. It is a totally inappropriate painting to be hung in the Nation’s Capital. No one seemed to have the intestinal fortitude to take it down until Representative Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Marine veteran, unscrewed the painting from the wall and removed it, returned it to Rep. Clay’s office. See the great video interview below.
As Written By Rick Moran for American Thinker:
A painting depicting a police officer as a wild boar shooting a black man has hung in the hall of the U.S. Capitol building since the summer, causing outrage among police organizations across the country.
Several police groups urged Speaker Paul Ryan to remove the offensive painting, which won an art competition in the district of St. Louis congressman Lacy Clay.
Yesterday, Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Marine veteran, unscrewed the painting from the wall and removed it, returning it to Rep. Clay’s Office.
“I took it down when I walked by and gave it back to Lacy,” Hunter told POLITICO. Asked about blowback from Clay, the Congressional Black Caucus or Democrats, he scoffed: “Blowback from what? Taking a down a painting that depicts policemen as pigs? No, I’m not.”
