Just when you thought this presidential race couldn’t get any lower, the progressive left redefines the old cliché “hitting below the belt.”
On August 18th, five life-size statues of a naked, castrated, Donald Trump were put on display in New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Cleveland. Each bore the title “The Emperor Has No Balls.”
The Washington Post credits the anarchists’ collective known as INDECLINE. The grotesque characterization depicts the republican presidential candidate as morbidly obese, riddled with varicose veins, and a shriveled manhood.
The artist, Joshua Monroe chose to sign his name using the alias “Ginger” in the hope of avoiding backlash, nonetheless he hasn’t been shy about interviews.
He told The Washington Post:
“When the guys approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities,” he said, referring to INDECLINE members. “Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities.”
The statue planted in New York’s Union Square, was removed promptly by the Parks Department. According to the Daily Intelligencer, the Department joined in the ridicule by stating, “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”
While passersby pose for selfies with the statue, some progressive pundits are reveling in the mockery.
Christina Cauterucci, a staff writer for Slate writes,
“It’s easy to see why many met the sight of this righteous humiliation of a notorious bully with glee. Trump has spent his entire career insulting people for their looks, specifically their weight.”
However, Marissa Jenae Johnson, a political agitator for the Black liberation movement isn’t laughing. In fact, she’s in the awkward position of having to defend Trump.
“This joke didn’t reveal that the emperor has no balls—but rather that the progressives have no grounding and no truly transformative strategy.”
Johnson goes on to say,
“These statues and the ensuing praise of them say more about the people laughing than they do about Trump himself.”
Well said. In fact, it should be noted that this is the same people that put a mural on the Mexican border last November that read, “Rape Trump” in Spanish.
Reports say that these fine folks have no problem doing the same for Hillary Clinton. Although, there was no mention of anything on the drawing board. Also, the fines the cities impose could be hefty.
The rotund statues take an industrial strength epoxy to keep in place. Damage to sidewalks have been reported. This, along with the backlash from their own side might weigh into the decision whether it’s worth it to give the world a 3D rendition of Clinton with more manhood than Trump.
Whether the democratic party likes it or not, the anarchists have been turned loose to do what they do best, defame and destroy.
