article imageMan Questioned About Bush Yard Artwork

By RobotGod     Mar 1, 2007 in World
Secret Service agents have questioned an Alameda man about a display in his front yard featuring a cardboard cutout of President Bush with a knife through his head.
Michael McDonald said he was grilled for about 90 minutes by two agents who asked about his personal history and his political views. They also asked him to allow access to his medical records, he said.
It also has painted blood running over the President's eyes and down the bridge of his nose. He said the agents asked if he interpreted his work as a threat against the country's chief executive. He said no.
"They said, 'You've got a knife sitting in the head of the president of the United States,'" McDonald told The Oakland Tribune. "I said, 'No, I got a knife in a piece of cardboard.'"
He has been placing art in his front yard for 13 years and rotates the pieces monthly. The Bush piece remains in the yard. He painted over the president's likeness in yellow and penciled in a swastika on the chest. The knife still pierces the forehead, running through a recently added sign that says, "Anonymous."
Aint that a statement about the nation under GW Bush. This man had every right to express himself and ultimately felt like he had to change his own artwork.
Yet it's ok for Bush to send men off to die and get bullets in their heads.
