Political Street Art: Violence Is The Religion of the Left

There is a lot of street art in my neighborhood, some of it political, some not. The running theme overall is a seething self-loathing. In the non-political street art category, some are so obscene that I would be ashamed even taking a photograph of it, much less putting it up on my blog.

This above recent example is a curious item of anarcho-hipsterim. No surprise that the left would embrace yet another terrorist. This time it's Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber. I'm always suspect of any reference to the World Trade Center in leftist art because it's usually either trooferish or a swipe at America. This one in particular strikes me odd because the Unabomber, a Harvard graduate, hated modern society and everything that the World Trade Center and New York City represented.

You are so right!! The least tollerant people in the world are the left wing zealots. Keep up the great work! The silent majority is waiting with baited breath for November.The next American revolution is taking place!!

Indeed, Wild Bill. Intolerant is almost putting it mildly. I have plenty of firsthand experience with the violent left from covering anti-war demonstrations over the years.

My friend, zombie just informed me that the Unabomber is a big hero for the anarcho-left in San Francisco.

Here's some info here:

"Out in my neck of the woods, the anarcho-left has never hidden its idol-worship of the Unabomber.

They simply love the guy around here! On this page, http://www.zombietime.com/churchill_in_bay_area/churchill_sf_anarchist_bookfair_march_26_2005/, the third picture down,

shows the Unabomber's Manifesto approvingly on sale at the SF Anarchist Bookfair."

And then people are surprised when they act out their beliefs. A person's heroes are a little window to their soul -- and the lefty zealots have none, apparently.

I was in Union Square busting the chops of the communist antisemitism brigade. Now that I am an officer I must be careful as commies do make up fake charges against hecklers.

Beak,

There are times that I miss the good ol' / bad ol' days back when people were afraid to go to Union Square Park.

Uban Infidel and Wild Bill greetings. I hope I don't disappoint you and your interpritation about the Nyte Walka grafic, but you are totally way off the mark. The image does not represent the UniBomber, on the contrary, it is a portrait of a NYC artist named Nyte Walka. The grafic had no intent to connect it with Unibomber, it's just a coincidence. The NY skyline has the Twin Towers incorported into the motif because they will always be a part of NY, infact they should be rebuilt somewhere in Manhattan if not where they were. The skyline with towers is an homage to the true NY skyline and for all not to forget that they were standing and why they are not anymore. This Nyte Walka image is purely art for the streets with no political undertone or affiliations.

FYI: NYTE WALKA is a PROUD AMERICAN
