offensive pictures

at today's bleat, jon comments:
...on a 'defining deviancy down' level, Rudy Giuliani's later tiff with the Brooklyn Museum about what government supported art should be showed that approved targets by the cultural elite for boot stomping now had open support for their actions among those same elites, no matter how crude the symbol. That is even though those same elites would never give up the comfort of their own personal privileges (or sensibilities -- try picturing a mural unveiled in a public or a government-owned building in New York that, even in abstract, depicted the horrors of Kermit Gosnell's clinic in a similar fashion to Picasso's Gurnica. The Valspar gallon white flat buckets and rollers would be on that thing within 24 hours of its unveiling).
also, a related comment links a much larger ugly picture
