Art-Lovers - You Are Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

Probably not going to be around to post tonight, so I thought I'd leave you with a question of culture to ponder in my absence.

I see that the Royal Academy of Arts in London is about to put on an exhibition of the works of Rodin. While the culture-vultures of the capital may enjoy stroking their chins over the artistic endeavours of a mass-murdering killing machine, I find it distasteful that the latte-sipping bobos can justify the horrors this beast has inflicted upon humanity.

This is political correctness gone mad. If the RAA decided to exhibit the postcards of Hitler, there would be an outcry, but what's sauce for the goose ought to be sauce for scourge of Japan.

What's next? A retrospective of Mothra's minor sketches? Mecha-Godzilla, a life in sculpture?

When will the do-gooders and bleeding-hearted liberals get it through their heads that the hard working families of Great Britain want action against terrorists, not exhibitions praising their atrocities?

Rodin: "A Portrait of the Artist as a Terrifying Hell-Beast", 1965
