REFUGE TAKEOVER

Posted by on Aug 13, 2016 in Burka, Political, Street Art, Writing | 24 Comments

While cycling through Century City I noticed some banners promoting an exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography titled “REFUGEE”.

These were beautifully shot banners of beautiful, hardworking people wanting nothing more than a better life for themselves and their families. 

So why did I take offense to them? 

What offended me wasn’t what was in front of me. What offended me was what wasn’t.



These weren’t the people who scare the living hell out of us. These aren’t the people we talk about when we demand our officials take a closer look at our open boarder policies. 

These banners were flying in the face of the questions, “Why are so many military aged males entering Western countries seeking refugee status?” “Where are all the women?”



I get that art patrons who’re insulated from the realities of life by their wealth like financing exhibits like this to help calm the herd of the dangers they fear. … But in my opinion this is not art. This isn’t even close. Like most left wing “art” it only tells half of the story, the kinder, more genteel half. It challenges nothing.



I found it ironic that this exhibit was being shown at the foot of OUR West Coast Twin Towers. A chilling reminder of the consequences we suffered on 911 after only 19 “REFUGEES” murdered over 3,000 american people.

My creative offerings to this conversation were immediately taken down. I thought it was funny that it was my images people were stopping to take photos of. My images did something the others didn’t, they ruffled feathers, they sparked interest, they inspired action.

“REFUGEE” is on display from the dates of April 23rd – Aug 21st 2016 a the Annenberg Space for Photography.

    I just saw your work today- bless you! It is powerful. And so much needed in our current blinded climate full of those who will not see because they don’t want to be labeled. Or think very deeply because they are too busy.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your
    blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    I am a Texan and a colorless American living north of Austin. You’re composites are awesome, but the message is stunning and provokes thought, as true art should. Thank you for being the voice of Reason in this time of Madness. You are a true patriot. I know the thought-police hypocrites in Austin would never allow your art to be exhibited, but there’s always Georgetown! No doubt those preaching tolerance have a bounty on your head, so be careful. BTW, please make the “Undocumented Democrats” a bumper sticker so I can drive around Austin displaying your work. You belong back in Tejas, mi amigo!

    Thank you so much for being a voice for the voiceless – It’s refreshing to see the whole truth reflected in our country’s public environment –

    Please keep giving these globalist left-wing loons hell, revealing the full story and all the facts, exposing their bias, bigoted, fake victim ideology –

    Thanks again – Sincerely, a proud South bay Deplorable

DO THEY THINK WE ARE FUCKING STUPID? APPARENTLY. FUCK ISLAM AND THE PEDOPHILE PROPHET IT RODE IN ON.

    Watched your Tucker interview, so I had to look you up. Now the whole office has visited your page. I classify myself as fiscally conservative but lean middle to maybe a little to the left socially (I am compassionate—-most of the time). I love your message. TRANSPARENCY seems to be the message…..love your media encouraging all of us to peel back the onion and challenge positions and what we’re being told! From Houston, but visit LA every year…..will be there Mar. 11 – 18, so hoping to see some of your art! Keep up the fight.

    I have been wishing I could draw things like this for years. Stick figures only for me.
    Love them all. Please keep up the good work. The world need you.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your talent, courage and COMMON SENSE that most of our fellow artists don’t seem to have. Keep it up.

    Thank you and God bless you for your work. The mainstream artists challenge nothing, which is why they are mainstream. You challenge everything and it’s needed.

    Love, love, love the posters. Hadn’t heard of you until Truth Revolt put out an article about you losing your Facebook page. You’ll probably get more attention now! If you are on any other social media sites, I’d love to follow you. Very well done.
