Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 09, 2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - A taxpayer-funded painting that portrays police as Nazis backed up by Ku Klux Klan members has ignited a debate about censorship in Minnesota. The painting, by Anishinaabe artist Jim Denomie, depicts the 2016 protests over the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota. Protesters were concerned about the impact on the Missouri River and the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Denomie's work shows Native American protesters on one side of a fiery river holding peaceful signs. On the far bank are police with military vehicles, attack dogs and a water cannon. One of the vehicles features a swastika, while Klan members stand behind the police. Nearby, a caricature of President Donald Trump is seen groping a woman.

Maybe folks should try being offended by tax-payer funded Nazis and Klansmen who wear a badge.

FTA: "State Rep. Josh Heintzeman, R-Nisswa, said the painting was "repulsive"..."

So you are saying the Republican representative is a "young lib"?
