Tear Down That Offensive Mural !!

Oh riiight, it’s only offensive because of the near nudity. In Australia. Not because it’s offensive to Queen Hillary. Oh sure.

An Australian mural of US presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a revealing, stars and stripes swimsuit may be taken down, after it has reportedly been deemed offensive.

The creator of the painting, the street artist who goes by the name Lushsux and who has also painted murals of the likes of Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian, branded calls to remove it “pathetic”.

The provocative mural is on the wall of a small business in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray, and reports say the business has been asked by the local Maribyrnong Council to remove it.

“We believe it is offensive because of the depiction of a near-naked woman, not on the basis of disrespect to Hillary Clinton, in accordance with the Graffiti Prevention Act 2007,” the council’s chief executive Stephen Wall told Fairfax Media on Friday.

Wall said local police had been asked to urgently provide their opinion on the mural, adding that the council intended to issue a notice to the building’s owner to remove it within 10 days.

Lushsux accused the council of being out of control, telling Fairfax the mural was “on par offence-wise” with a deodorant ad.

Speaking on Melbourne radio, Lushsux said he suspected that his Instagram account, which he said had some 110,000 followers, was deleted due to him posting a photo of the raunchy Hillary image.

“It’s hard enough to be an artist… to lose your social media following in this day and age is a big loss,” he told 3AW on Friday.

But the artist shows no sign of changing his style. Asked what he planned next, Lushsux told listeners: “I might paint a big mural of Trump in similar style.”

A couple of points here ...


First, I’d rate this as a D+ in terms of creativity, given that everyone already knows what a money grubbing grafter she is. And also given that the whole Hillary in a flag-ish one piece has already been done as a photoshop all over the internet:

Second, it was no big deal when Sarah Palin was “mocked” in several swimsuits, hooker outfits, tracksuits, etc. Well, except that in general she looked pretty good in all of them, even though most were ‘shopped:

Third, this kind of stuff isn’t limited just to Americans. Either mocking misogyny knows no borders, or guys everywhere find creative ways to share their arousal from powerful women:

So what are we really dealing with here? Maybe Oz is doing a little preemptive favor currying, just in case?

Hey, maybe they should have done like Albania, and put up a statue to her. Granted, it’s a rather manly looking one, but come on.

I guess they were out of Nobel Prize medals in Oslo this week.

No, I’m not making this up. Check out the video. Better yet, peek below the fold and check out the reaction of our news talking heads to Albania’s news talking ... heads.

UPDATE A big “fify”: the artist has reconsidered and repainted and is throwing PC back at everyone , that is, if they know how to notice things like that ...

I can’t wait to see this bit of news on tonight’s Albania Today show.  image

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
