I quite simply don't understand these people. So filled with hatred it oozes out of their pores.

I get that there are artistes who don't like Rockwell on artistic terms. Fine, whatever.

But to not like Rockwell on the terms of his narratives is pretty much un-American. Yeah, I said it.

What kind of a weirdo, pinko, Communist doesn't like Rockwell?

Like here: [Link: collections.nrm.org...]

This is what happens when racists are smart enough to hide their real issues with a black President -- they sublimate their bigotry and focus on peripheral issues. At the bottom, though, this is pure, simple racism.

Sick.

Disgusting dirty people these wingers are.

Ruby Bridges Hall visiting the White House & viewing the painting (she serves on the board of Norman Rockwell Museum):

Maybe Jeannie DeAngelis should throw a tomato at it.

Well, MY tolerance just dropped to zero.

Breitbart doesn't like it that the president put up a painting of an iconic American hero, accompanied by some gentlemen who worked for Dwight D. Eisenhower, painted by a man whose very name evokes small-town America, and our best values as a nation?

Well, Breitbart can drop dead.

Oh, it's worse than I thought. The idiot woman writing this first claims she'd be happier if he'd shown 'Southern Justice', or the one with the little black kids looking at the little white kids as the mover unpacks their stuff, which is BS. I can pretty much write the whine she would have whined had either of those been used.

Then, she compares this to hanging a picture by Mohammed Atta. I'm sure the Rockwell estate will be very flattered by that comparison.

Then she goes on to whine about how Obama doesn't spend enough time praising white Civil War soldiers and civil rights workers. (I mean, shit, white people died so this man could be president. Doesn't that mean he owes it to them never to suggest that there ever was a struggle for them to die in, or that black people had anything to do with it?)

What an astonishing vile person.

Maybe Jeannie DeAngelis should throw a tomato at it.

Or scrawl "[deleted word]" across it.

not surprised, this is how these people think, now the internet allows them to show it

12 HappyWarrior  Fri, Sep 2, 2011 11:27:26am

The whole thing is stupid even for a Breitbart blogger.

There are these bright and burning moments in history when the good guys get an all too infrequent win. This was certainly one of them, and portrayals of those moments create affirmative emotions in people who are essentially good at heart.

It doesn't matter if it's this painting, a picture of the Berlin wall falling, or Jesse Owens crossing the finish line in 1936. It's all one thing; good winning through persistence and patience in the end. Times changing for the better forever.

So people who are offended by this painting or upset that it's hanging in the white house and writing convoluted essays about it are just fracking evil themselves.

re: #9 SanFranciscoZionist

Well, we already know what meme is coming down the pike, next. It's already started.

We're supposed to be, um, more appreciative of our treatment.

In fact! Ruby Bridges is the racist! She knowingly provoked whites to throw tomatoes at her! She's still talking about it 60 years later!!!!

Dhimmitude mentality.

15 Prideful, Arrogant Marriage Equality Advocate  Fri, Sep 2, 2011 4:16:20pm

HA! I think the White house should also put up a great big ole painting of D.P. Upham.
It would be interesting and telling to see who all would respond negatively to it.
