More batspit crazy from the left.

Daniell Rider, a Hobby Lobby consumer, found a decoration at one of their stores so offensive, she shared the image on Facebook requesting that they remove the decor from their shelves.

What was it?

Rider on Thursday shared a photo of a shelf with glass bottles containing what appear to be replicas of raw cotton plants.

She captioned the photo, “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative about raw cotton… A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves.”

“A little sensitivity goes a long way,” she added. “PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.''

 

What kind of outcry occurred?

After Rider shared the post, it garnered viral attention on Facebook.

At the time of this writing, the post has been “liked” 33k times, has received 76k 

comments, and has been shared nearly 7k times.

The reaction was split — some commenters supported Rider’s outrage and wrote things like, “What do you expect from HL!!!? NEVER shop there!” while others couldn’t find the offense in the innocuous-looking decoration.

One commenter wrote, “Ummm… it’s cotton… ***…its 2017… do you know some slaves in 2017 that picked this cotton and didn’t get paid for it. Just… stop.”

Some perspective

Art is art, and visual decor falls into that category.

Visually stimulating productions of art — whether worthy of The Louvre, or simply available at your local craft store — is created with intent and meant for interpretation.

Art’s intent is to be stimulating, and oftentimes meant to be a conversation piece in order to trigger important conversations.

Art can also be art for the sake of visual appreciation. There doesn’t necessarily need to be a deep meaning behind it.

While artists like Vincent Van Gogh and Jackson Pollock are widely different, each represents an unconventional aspect of art appreciation which some may “get,” while others may not.

Batspit crazy liberal " journalist".

Release Leslie Van Houten. If she hadn't been a Manson follower, she would have left prison long ago

As a young journalist in 1969, I was assigned to cover the highly sensational trial of the so-called Manson family. They were accused of the gruesome murders of, among others, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. Almost 50 years after the killings here in Los Angeles, former Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten is again eligible for parole, and a state panel recently recommended her release. But the ultimate decision rests with Gov. Jerry Brown, who in 2016 said Van Houten posed “an unreasonable risk to society.” That wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. I believe that Van Houten, who was just 19 at the time of the killings and is now 68, has earned her freedom.

Just think of all the things this crazy woman will have to toss out because they are made from cotton. Wonder what they will use next time she gets her nails "did", or her hair dyed those wild colors, or when blacks get their hair straightened? BTW, straight hair on a black person means they have appropriated our culture.

Aren't these the same people that invented Black eyed peas,
Pancakes and welfare..??

Alabama cotton fields in full bloom are beautiful.  It doesn't last long and has no more to do with field hands picking it by hand, than a mule plowing the field.  I'm old enough to have viewed both on small farms.  Not all the people doing the hard work were black.

I know plenty of older folks that picked cotton. None of them are black.

The uncalled for un-American propaganda from the misguided

such an extremely quick period of time, what happened to
common sense..

Nothing misguided about them.  No "father forgive them, they know not what they do."  The left knows what they are about -- "the children of darkness are wiser, in their time, than the children of light."
