But, The Gov’t SHOULD Support The Arts, Right?

Feds Spend $20,000 on Musical About Illegal Immigrant Lesbian

Via Billy

Socialist theater group has received $461,000 from

the NEA

The National Endowment for the Arts is spending $20,000 for a musical about a lesbian illegal immigrant who is in love with an ICE agent.

The San Francisco Mime Troupe, a self-described socialist theater group, received the funding in the first round of grants awarded under the Trump administration. Jane Chu is the current chairman of the NEA, who was appointed by former president Barack Obama in 2014.

The musical is entitled “WALLS!” and stars a “bad hombre,” mocking a phrase used by Trump to describe criminal illegal aliens during a presidential debate.

Our tax dollars at work!
I do wonder if the uproar would be the same if they were portrayed as a heterosexual couple, though…
Regardless, I do understand this is a drop in the bucket, compared to FISA funding to continue to spy on law-abiding Americans, and military spending.
(Or rather, I assume so, as most intelligence funding is clouded in secrecy.)

  1. (sigh) I just wish we had more choice about what our tax dollars are spent on. Seems such a waste.

  2. The gummint spends a great deal of our money on things & activities for which it clearly has no Constitutional authority. More than one analyst has concluded that nearly everything the federal gov’t has done in the last 120 years is unauthorized or outright illegal.

    Good luck getting that turned around.
