I don’t think this is what they meant by stimulating the economy.  I don’t want to think about the jobs this is supposed to create.

Fox News Reports:

The National Endowment for the Arts may be spending some of the money it received from the Recovery and Reinvestment Act to fund nude simulated-sex dances, Saturday night "pervert" revues and the airing of pornographic horror films at art houses in San Francisco.

The NEA was given $80 million of the government’s $787 billion economic stimulus bill to spread around to needy artists nationwide, and most of the money is being spent to help preserve jobs in museums, orchestras, theaters and dance troupes that have been hit hard by the recession.

But some of the NEA’s grants are spicing up more than the economy. A few of their more risque choices have some taxpayer advocates hot under the collar, including a $50,000 infusion for the Frameline film house, which recently screened Thundercrack, "the world’s only underground kinky art porno horror film, complete with four men, three women and a gorilla."

Really?  Taxpayer money being spent on this crap?  Not only is this a complete waste of money, but pornography is destructive to those who partake in it and those who make it.  It is appalling to me, but I shouldn’t be surprised this coming from the same federal department that funded a crucifix in a bottle of urine named “Piss Christ” and called that art.  This group wouldn’t know art if it came up and smacked them upside the head.  Not to mention where the heck in the constitution does it say the Government is to provide for the arts?

Keep the artists starving I say!  The National Endowment of the Arts needs to be disbanded and defunded, and let’s do it for the children.

  1. What is art? Hiitler was right when he got rid of those artists. We need to do the same. This art is disgusting.

  2. Wow! It is beyond belief that 80 million dollars were given to the National Endowment for the Arts when the economy is in such a state to begin with, adding to our national debt, but this? Funny how that hasn’t made the network news shows… I’m praying for a revival of conscience for our lawmakers. I can’t believe someone actually thought this was something taxpayers would find acceptable.
