‘ A high school student's mural angers parents over what they say are hidden messages’


[www.npr.org]


‘ Another parent who described herself as a "conservative, right-wing, gun-loving American" admonished parents for going after the student artist so viciously.

"I've never seen more bigoted people in my life," she said. ‘

I wonder how long until some adult vandalizes it. If it is, it should be left in that state with an explanatory note.

Or some student.

I didn't look to closely at the mural, as I'm not trying to find 'hidden' messages.

But if the student and administration settled on what the mural should look like, then that's all that should be on the wall.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

FWIW I do think that there were choices in the mural that today read as political statements. Strangely, they aren't necessarily the things being fought over.

Adults were looking for something to be offended over and they found it. End of story.

She altered the original design submission when she painted the mural, but she has agreed to remove those symbols that weren't in the original submission, so most of the mural remains.

Adults can be so noxious.

Same here so I thought that was what some were offended by.

Regardless the artwork is very good.

I'm surprised they didn't complain about the vaccinations and the masking.

From the article: "LGBTQ propaganda"

Is this any different than heterosexual propaganda?



It is what it is.

Yes, it’s more colorful.
