LOS ANGELES — Johnny Depp has asked a crowd at the Glastonbury Festival when was the last time an actor assassinated a president. The remarks came during a segment Thursday in which Depp was speaking about President Donald Trump.
“Look at London! That’s what the Democrats and the mainstream media want for us”
“This is the 1960s all over again. The only thing we are missing is an assassination, but even that is gaining favor.”
The extremist rhetoric, and outright propaganda narratives that are being purveyed by our national mainstream media directly contributed to the recent politically targeted shooting of Congressman Scalise at baseball practice in Arlington, VA.
In light of this event in which 5 people, including 2 Capitol Police, were shot, bipartisan support of our country and the value of all life, should bring us together in unity. It is time for the left to show some dignity as human beings and speak out against the violence and hate.
But that is not happening, the media continues to attack our President, and by doing so the value and the decency of our country in the eyes of the international community is being reduced. Even here in the U.S., now in repeated cases, extremist members of the left are expressing support of violence against Trump supporters, and republicans.
The people who live in these echo chamber bubbles of society have developed extreme ideologies to support their dwindling political relevance. This cult-like anti-government activism has spread into the Arts community. In a copycat version of Kathy Griffins violent Severed Head image, the following group from Harrisburg, PA, shows no shame in its equally disturbing new art exhibit.
CopyCat Severed Head “Art” Display
According to their website, We Arts Collective (WAC):
“The behavior of our current administration is unacceptable, and we are left without proper recourse.”
- In celebration of Kathy Griffin’s violent display of the severed head of our current United States President Donald J. Trump, this exhibit is led by this artist.
“These attacks against the image represent more than just attempts at censorship, but rather the ideologies that fuel the support of our current President. We fully believe that art is one of the last forms of expression in which we can feel free and is a tool to be wielded in the struggle against injustice.” – WAC
- This artist holds strong beliefs in the anti-Trump rhetoric.
“We are recreating this photo in order to support freedom of expression through art while simultaneously resisting the current administrations outlandish use of power against the interests of American citizens.” – WAC
