Catholic League Endorses Trump’s Gutting Of The Arts Because “Perverts” Shouldn’t Get Federal Money

Via press release from Catholic League president Bill Donohue:

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), National Public Radio (NPR), and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), are all subsidized by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). The Trump administration is right to propose a budget that completely guts these entities of federal funding. That is why I am asking members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to honor the president’s request.

Justice demands that these agencies should be eliminated: Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for assaults on their religion. Christians constitute roughly 75 percent of the population; Catholics are approximately 25 percent of the total. In the name of “art,” these Americans are expected to pay for irreverent exhibits, but depictions that are reverential—such as a nativity scene outside City Hall—are denied a dime. It’s time we stopped giving the arts a privileged position and cut their funding. The same is true for publicly funded radio and TV programming that has a history of insulting the majority of Americans.

The CPB was founded in the 1960s, and it has been plagued with problems ever since. In the late 1980s, the NEA funded Andre Serrano’s “Piss Christ” and Robert Mapplethorpe’s “The Perfect Moment.” Serrano took a crucifix and dropped it into a jar of his own urine, branding it art. The NEA gave a Philadelphia museum $30,000 to display graphic homosexual S&M photos taken by Mapplethorpe.

In 1998, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that there is no constitutional prohibition against Congress setting decency standards for the NEA. But attempts by the NEA to enforce grant recipients to sign an anti-obscenity pledge went nowhere. This is why Congress must act.

To show how perverse things have become, President Barack Obama not only approved generous grants to the NEA, he actually included $50 million for the arts as part of his “federal stimulus package.” One of the first beneficiaries was a San Francisco outfit, CounterPULSE. It received $25,000 to pay for employees’ salaries. What did the public get from it? The group hosted “a long-running pansexual performance series” called “Perverts Put Out”; it asked the audience to “Join your fellow pervs for some explicit twisted fun.”

Third victim of London terror attack named as US tourist who was on holiday with his wife

The third victim of the terror attack in London has been named as a US tourist who died after falling from Westminster Bridge.

Kurt Cochran was reportedly on holiday in London with his wife, who suffered a serious injury in the terrorist attack and is recovering in hospital.

He fell to his death from the south end of Westminster Bridge as the car used in the terror attack sped down it, ploughing into pedestrians.

Donald Trump Jr just had the worst response to the Westminster attack

On Wednesday afternoon a police officer was stabbed and killed by an assailant outside the British Houses of Parliament

A car then plouged into a crowd of people on Westminster bridge, killing one woman and injuring at least 10. Three French teenagers on a school trip to London were also badly injured in the attack. 

At the moment, the situation remains fluid and facts are scarce. indy100 is updating their page with exactly what we know and what we don't know throughout the evening. 

Elsewhere on the internet, Donald Trump Jr, Donald Trump's eldest son, decided to share an article from seven months ago.

Mr Trump Jr shared an Independent article titled: Sadiq Khan: 'London mayor says terror attacks 'part and parcel' of living in a major city.'

His comment alongside the article read: 

You have to be kidding me?!

The article was originally posted in September 2016, and was a plea from the Mayor for Londoners to be vigilant to the dangers of living in a big city. 

The Mayor told the Evening Standard that he had many 'sleepless nights' after a bombing in New York last year, and said that London needs to be prepared for these kinds of attacks. 

He added: 

That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice.

Donald Trump Jr's choice to share a seven month old article, seemingly without reading it or pointing out that it was an old quote, was received with disbelief and overwhelming denigration.

Channel 4's Ciaran Jenkins asked if Mr Trump Jr had even read the article "before goading London's Mayor during a live incident'.

President Trump. (Bill O’Leary/The Washington Post)

President Trump. (Bill O’Leary/The Washington Post)

Why is the Trump presidency such a rolling disaster?

When Republicans imagined having a president of their own and control of Congress, they thought it would be a nonstop string of legislative achievements and improvements to government, bringing an inspiring new era of efficiency and effectiveness that showed Americans what the GOP was really capable of.

That is not quite how things are working out. Let’s take a brief tour around the news from just today, to see what is befalling the Trump administration:

Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland halted the second version of the administration’s travel ban, ruling that its discriminatory intent likely makes it unconstitutional and putting it on indefinite hold.: After a brutal Congressional Budget Office assessment showed that the Republican bill would cause 24 million Americans to lose their health coverage, House Speaker Paul Ryan now admits that the bill can’t pass the House in its current form.: “President Trump on Thursday will unveil a budget plan that calls for a sharp increase in military spending and stark cuts across much of the rest of the government including the elimination of dozens of long-standing federal programs that assist the poor, fund scientific research and aid America’s allies abroad.”

That last one may not look like bad news — yet. But it’s going to produce both internal and external problems. It’s already causing consternation among Republicans on Capitol Hill, many of whom like to talk about limited government in the abstract but aren’t as happy about the kind of radical cuts the administration is suggesting, setting up a conflict between the White House and Congress. They’ll also find that the public, too, thinks “small government” sounds like a good idea until you start cutting the programs they depend on. And that’s before we even get to the Russia scandal.

Every administration has good periods and bad periods, successes and failures. But this is more than a slow start; two months in, this presidency is a rolling disaster.
