On Friday, New Orleans Democrat Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced that, in recognition of the city’s black and brown artists, the city has dedicated $7.2 million in bond funding to public art. They have already used some of the funding to purchase over 60 pieces of work created by local black artists. Remember, this is a city where Democrats used federal funding that was supposed to go toward building up their 5 levee systems to handle category 5 hurricanes but they used a lot of the money to rebuild historic statues and historic pubs that were destroyed by drunk men with beads.

The books were so cooked for the New Orleans government that they asked for a delay of a federal audit. When the government gives you millions and billions of dollars, eventually the government wants to audit that money to make sure that it went to where it was appropriated.

Since the Democrats in New Orleans squandered the gobbles of cash that the federal government gave them to go toward the Army Corps of Engineers to work on the levees, they asked for some time to hold off the audit as long as they could. Louisiana US Senator Mary Landrieu, it was reported at the time, helped to hold off the federal audit.

After Katrina, she very publicly said she wanted to punch George W. Bush in the face for how he handled Katrina. The truth of the matter was that Bush’s FEMA agency did a fantastic job handling the hurricane despite the fact that the local and state Democrats did things that really gummed up the works and made relief efforts extremely difficult.

After so much time passed, the federal government finally said it was doing the audit no matter what. It was at that point that the Democrats in New Orleans had the good fortune of having the Katrina hurricane hit the coast. I say good fortune because the audit that would have revealed massive amounts of corruption and fraud by the Democrats in New Orleans and Louisiana, which thanks to the hurricane, the audit was now put by the wayside because the Democrats immediately exploited Katrina and trashed President Bush by claiming that his racism would not allow him to help the black people in New Orleans. The American people sat back watching this unfold, scratching their heads and wondering what the hell were the Democrats talking about? The whole exploitation of the hurricane was quickly put together just to block their culpability of stealing federal money that was appropriated for something that they didn’t spend it on. To this day, we have never heard again about the audit.

I bring these things up just to give you an idea of the level of Democrat corruption in New Orleans.

On Friday, just in time for the Juneteenth celebration, Cantrell visited the unveiling of the most recent of the sculptures that were paid for with the bond funding, which was a giant afro pick with a black power fist on the handle. The black power fist was a symbol used by the radical Black Panther Party as a sign of resistance.

DOH!

When I first saw this story, I thought it was from the Babylon Bee. I thought it was a joke spawned by Mel Brooks’ Star Wars parody movie “Space Balls” where Empire soldiers were ordered to comb the desert, showing white soldiers using combs to scrape the desert sand. The scene iterates through two pairs of soldiers with giant combs sifting through the sand and then the camera focuses on two black soldiers with an afro pick. It was considered funny back in 1987 and completely and utterly racist.

WATCH:

Washington Times columnist Tim Young responded:

“A hair pick???”

‘Silently scrolls for all the Spaceball references. ‘

A woman pointed out what a waste of money and the moment in history this disaster is.

“Of all of the AMAZING AND SIGNIFICANT contributions African Americans have made to our culture in science, entertainment, music, sports, academia, etc. this is what you chose to symbolize them?! Next you’ll be “honoring” women by displaying a sculpture of a large makeup mirror.”

More people chimed in on just how inappropriate the sculpture is:

“What does a hair pic have to do with my enslaved ancestors?”

“Art is great. However when your city is literally on life support bc the crime is running rampid, wouldn’t that 7.2M be better spent elsewhere. I don’t know maybe police!”

“Holy shit, that’s real??? I’m sorry but WTF”

“I mean, they couldn’t think of one person? Not a single black person in history to look up to? A $ store comb. Made in China.”

“Yes. Harriet Tubman risked her life as an armed scout and spy for the union army and saved many slaves via the Underground Railroad so her accomplishments could be memorialized by an Afro Pick”

“This sculpture is insulting, not fitting as a celebration for freedom. Your city is filled with rich culture and you chose a hair pick. Not a person, a group, fine arts, musicians, or culinary arts. You chose a hair pick?????”

Democrats; you can’t live with them… please pass the salt.

  • It makes about as much sense as the whole JUNETEENTH nonsense anyways. I think it’s perfect. Biden patronizing the racist black leadership with another ridiculous handout. Love getting ubangi central. At least they still done have to have the black killing black truth.

    • Some one needs to paint some barbed wire black and tangle it into that “pick” so it looks like cockhair!

    • Juneteenth, what, is this another bull$hit made up “holiday” like Kwanzaa? Under Biden, the country is in a disaster. People need to be working , not taking some fictitious “holiday”. I didn’t get my mail delivered yesterday. When I called the Post Office, I was told it was a Federal Holiday!!! When did that happen??

  • There has been No ! juneteenth or pride day in the Passed and there should not be any more. There’s been none of this CRAP until Everyone started Screaming Radical Racism , Race Baiting , Race Card s and Bigotry. I’m ashamed of this Country. We The People should not have put Up with this CARP any longer. Just because of a few Retarded Individuals that these thing s are gonna change the World.

  • So we now celebrate a holiday made possible because of Democrats withholding the Republican freeing the slaves proclamation for years. Then Democrats take credit without blame. Ain’t American politics great?

  • OH MY! I guess they couldn’t find anybody that deserved a statue? NOT They didn’t look too hard. How much did the Mayor get in kickbacks for this one???
    That should be an embarrassment to ANYBODY!

  • If that isn’t RACIST I don’t know what is ! There’s RACIST and there is RACIST and this takes the CAKE ! This is as Racist as Juneteenth or Pride Day.

  • I don’t know, or care for that matter, what the rest of you plan on doing on this idiotic “HOLIDAY”, but I will be proudly displaying the Stars and Bars in front of my house and don’t give a dam who doesn’t like it, In fact the more blacks that it pisses off, the better I like it !!!! F**K AL SHARPTON !!! I REFUSE TO PANDER TO KNEE GROWS !!!!

  • The mayor of New Orleans is racist idiot. New Orleans is a VERY dangerous city, with people being murdered every day. And yet, this ignorant moron wastes taxpayers’ money on this piece of $hit eyesore. Visit New Orleans and you may very well die there.

  • Good grief! Not bad enough to “celebrate” a made- up “holiday”, but to WASTE taxpayer monies on that eyesore??? It doesn’t say “New Orleans” in the least; doesn’t say ANYTHING really.

  • Yep lets celebrate black supremacy ! And condemn White supremacy! Fact is DC is home to the ALL BLACK CAUCUS! WHERE WHITES CAN’T VOTE! Funny why can’t we have an all white Caucus? Or all ASIAN CAUCUS? OR SPANISH CAUCUS? DC is the home of the biggest hypocrites on the planet! The Democrats are pushing for another race war! They won’t stop till they get it ! Then claim it was anybody but them that did anything! When the Democratic BLM came to are town we showed up armed with a simple message! YOU LOOT AND WE SHOOT! They didn’t bother to stay for their own rally! We watch as Democrats let them burn down cities and destroy businesses ! Not to mention the lives they destroyed! But if the Democrats get their race war they might fined themselves all living if AFRICA! And there will be no need for courts to say anything. As they may be sent with them!

  • COMPLETE INSULT ! My Great Great Grandmother Zella Weston was a free slave from Alabama. We have a national celebration ,today her freedom and others. The only thing you can come with is a freakin comb with a black panther fist. How ignorant. Get on The View if you need support .

  • First and foremost I could care less what statues go up. But if we pull alleged racist statues down (ie Robert E Lee) than this racist statue should’ve never went up. The black panthers were/are a racist hate group that hate whites. So again we have a double standard. If one statue stands while another is taken down that’s racism is it’s greatest form.
