Painting, hung in Capitol Hill display by Democrat Rep. William Lacy Clay, St. Louis.

A high school student’s painting that portrays the events in Ferguson, Missouri, is back on the wall on Capitol Hill.

Democratic congressman William Lacy Clay rehung the painting on Tuesday after a Republican lawmaker had removed it because he found it offensive. The painting depicts a pig in a police uniform aiming a gun at a protester among several images.

Clay said returning the painting was about defending the Constitution. The Missouri congressman said it is “pathetic” that some Republicans constantly refer to themselves as constitutional conservatives, but don’t think the same document protects the free speech rights of his 18-year-old constituent.

David Pulphus won an annual arts competition in Clay’s congressional district. His picture portrays events in Ferguson, Missouri, after the shooting of an unarmed teenager set off protests.

California Rep. Duncan Hunter removed the painting last Friday and says GOP leaders will seek its permanent removal by the House architect.

    Congressional Black Caucus is nothing more than a group trying to live in the past that does nothing for the black citizens. They have some power, but use it to line their pockets and continue to throw the race card at every opportunity.

      Now is the time to charge the artist and the ENTIRE Black Caucus with their favorite scream “RACIST”….. On the morning of 21 Jan 2017, President Trump needs to issue an EXECUTIVE order that in both the Senate and the house, the seating will done alphabetically by name and seniority, starting at the rear of both houses, and no more than 2 members of the same party may be seated side by side. The aisles will no longer be a divider of parties….. The Black Caucus will cease to exist, unless there can be a White Caucus… Negros in both houses will be scattered about to show that they can live in harmony with whitey

      That is all the Democrats have to sell to the American public, HATE. If they don’t like you because you don’t agree with their socialism, they will smear you with their one word lynchings, racist, homophobe, hater, white privelege, etc. It finally appears that some of America has gotten wise to their demagoguery and won’t buy it any longer; however, it also appears that a percentage of black Americans have grown up believing that whites want to keep them down and that if it weren’t for that they would be wildly successful. Isn’t it strange that all the cities run by Democrats have high crime rates, high out of work rates for blacks, high black on black murder rates, low opinions of their police, and high civic debt, although they have many black Democrats working in government!? Or that current president has done everything except verbalize his opinion that there should be a race war!? Pray for peace in America during Obama’s last ten days in office!

      Dragonfire, I’m as non-PC as they get, but your favorite word still grates on my sense of morals, as I was raised to refer to them as black…and I am nearly 60 years old BTW. I know their race uses the word constantly toward one another, but IMHO, the word Negro or black would suffice, as negro is the Spanish word for black anyway! Besides, just about any of the old references would suffice to insult them, if that is your intent: negro (this one especially), blacks, colored people – NOT Africans, because they are NOT African. Don’t know if you are old enough, but back in the day, they couldn’t decide what they wanted to be referred to as: negro, black, colored people, people of color, Africans, African-Americans – let’s see, have I forgotten any? There were so many…

If one of the WHITE Congressmen held such an “art” contest and chose as the winner a painting depicting Confederate monuments and such flanked by Confederate flags, do you think this DONKEY Lacey would be as “concerned” about the “rights” of the artist? I’m guessing he’d be howling like a banshee, demanding that it be removed, and “artist’s” rights be DAMNED. Wouldn’t you say?

      “The painting’s return was led by Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), who said its removal went against freedom of speech and expression: “This is about protecting the Constitution,” he said.”
      (Also…) “Clay said returning the painting was about defending the Constitution. The Missouri congressman said it is “pathetic” that some Republicans constantly refer to themselves as constitutional conservatives,…”

      Where did the CBC stand recently regarding freedom of speech concerning displaying of the Confederate flag?

      “We acknowledge that demanding the removal of these hurtful images and symbols that represent decades of hatred and oppression is only the first step in addressing the racism plaguing our country, but we must also acknowledge that symbols matter,” The resolution calls for:
      ••• Immediate removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the South Carolina State House;
      ••• Discontinuing sale of the Confederate flag merchandise by retailers;
      ••• Removal of the symbolic and/or actual references to the Confederacy in the seven states where they still remain; and
      ••• Banning use of the Confederate battle flag and its likeness on any governmental property, not excluding license plates.”

      Rep Clay, in light of the facts presented above, what is truly “pathetic” is your blatant hypocrisy,…and that of the Congressional Black Circus (not a typo).

      You’ve got that right. Apparently only liberals have a right to be protected from being offended. Why did Representative Clay not cite the Constitution when they were pulling “Huck Finn” and “To Kill a Mockingbird” from a Virginia school district because some parents were offended by their contents? Where was the left’s Freedom of Speech righteousness whenever conservative speakers, to include Condoleeza Rice, were not allowed to speak on college campuses because liberals found them offensive? More than its philosophy, I hate the left’s hypocrisy. Things like the Congressional Black Caucus, Black Miss America, Black History month, Hispanic Heritage month, etc., when not allowing equivalent recognition for whites, don’t bring people together; they drive them further apart. You want the races to get along, then stop creating lines of division and apply your standards and philosophy equally to everyone.

    While I personally believe the painting is in very bad taste, I respectfully believe that Rep Lacy should have the right to place the painting in his own office, but I don’t believe he has the justifiable right to foist it on the general public in the halls of Congress. There is a subtle but distinct difference. Kudos to Rep Hunter for justifiably objecting to something that is so patently offensive/in such poor taste.

    Why is there a Congressional Black Caucus? Why is this group based on color? Can there be a Congressional White Caucus? Why does Congress, who is supposed to make laws that cover every American hosting a group that is only one color? Does the Congressional Black Congress only represent Black people? If so, why?!

      Actually, the Black Caucus doesn’t represent any black people except the black people in congress. Larry Elder speaks of a white congressman (I can’t remember his name offhand) who represented a black district and tried to join the Black Caucus. The congressman was told he couldn’t join because he wasn’t black.

    If this Disgusting painting remains at the gallery I want the Confederate Flag there also, FREEDOM of Expression. You ******** forget and want Americans to forget that the POLICE ARE HUMAN BEINGS, I think the Police Unions in AMERICA need to bring HATE CRIME LAWSUIT against Democratic congressman William Lacy Clay, (D), St. Louis, MO. and the Congressional Black Caucus for 60 million dollars and not a cent less. AND NOT ONE PENNY FROM TAX PAYERS.

    My former police officer husband had a watch with the face of a pig in a police uniform, below which were the words “Pride, Integrity, Guts”, which indeed describes our brave police officers. I wonder who these Black Caucus idiots will call when someone breaks into their homes or attacks their families.

    The left loves calling people “racists”. The REAL “racists” are those who yell it the loudest and most often and before you in the personage of Kongressman lacy (lcit) stands a 110% racist communist ***hole. In the words of Herman Cain: NEWS NUGGET! Kongressman lacy is NOT a demoKrat; he is a COMMUNIST. I don’t care if he calls himself a “progressive” demoKrat, he is still a communist and nothing less.

    Well, ignorant racists are what they are and do what they do. Most black politicians unfortunately fall into this category. It helps them stay in office.

    Hopefully this clown finds himself in need of a police officer and then finds himself…wanting.

      bragar, black politicians seem INCAPABLE of governing without racial bias, even though they DEMAND that white people do so! I say in the interest of “equality”, if they CANNOT govern without racial bias, then they need to get the HELL OUT of government office until they CAN.

      Then they have the GALL to crawl all OVER Jeff Sessions to determine whether or not he is “too racist” to dispense justice without racial bias? Look at what the Justice Dept. has become under Obama! Justice dispensed by skin color and political persuasion–and if you are the wrong flavor of EITHER, you get NO JUSTICE, PERIOD! Eric freaking HOLDER even grandly announced that he would NOT investigate OR prosecute any black-on-white crime. How “unbiased” is THAT?

    I think the Congressman’s actions are despicable. An award for this disrespectful piece of ‘art’ does nothing to help relations between police and their communities. I have to assume the gentleman also has no respect for law enforcement. Those communities suffering with the effects of a culture that values nothing of merit, but encourages criminal behavior most often directed at members of their own race, need police in their communities. It is hard to imagine why people would elect someone who blames law enforcement rather than the real cause. Nothing will ever change until these people recognize that their culture is broken. Their families are broken and they need new community leaders who can make the hard decisions needed to walk the road back to a culture that contributes to society and encourages strong families and successful lives.

    I had a feeling they wouldn’t accept the removal of the painting and would try to rehang it… It’s going to take an act of congress itself, it seems, to get the ignorant members of the Black Caucus to finally have the picture taken out of their control and removed from the Halls of Congress permanently….

    The only purpose of the Congressional Black Caucus is to give blacks in Congress
    a greater voice, and hence, greater claim of racism and of being treated unfairly…

    Their insistence of rehanging a picture that depicts police officers as reprehensible beings, as animals who seek only to hunt and harass black citizens is itself reprehensible, and beneath the dignity of anyone who claims to represent law and order in our nations Capitol… a fact they are obviously incapable of comprehending….

    When will black racists be dealt with? They continue to divide America, beat, rape, rip off whitey, get away with it for their ’cause’. Their racist activities are blessed while a nation of folks who have never done one thing to harm them suffer their wrath. All racism should be punished. When will the field be leveled. A black deacon in a church told me that all black people have a core of hatred in them that will never be solved until Jesus returns.

      To have PEACE you need to find the Cause first! After the Civil War the SLAVES were given the choice to return to AFRICA. To facilitate, our Government bought a hug piece of Land. The COUNTRY Is called” LIBERIA.” A lot of Slaves chose to return but not all. The ones that remained were given compensation in money and Land. Liberia became a fairly prosperous land!
      Our forefathers gave little thought to the consequences that could ensue. They probably believed on command we would just live together and be happy. It just did not happened.
      To this day both races have suffered, Black and White. Different CULTURES take many generations to form and no Politicians can mandate to live together in peace.
      Since, we have Communism that infiltrated America. The Democrats have embraced the Alinsky hatred and used it to fuel Black againced White and vice versa. Now we can add the MUSLIM CULTURE which is even less willing to ASSIMILATE to AMERICAN CULTURE?

    I am not artistic but if someone out there would be willing to paint a picture of the black caucus as a group of ignorant monkeys, I would be willing to put my name on it and present it to Congressman Hunter to hang for me right next to the other painting until such time as both are removed.
