Tolerant Trump supporters threaten to kill artist

Everyone knows that throughout history artists have been regarded as everything from eclectic to downright insane. Despite that, their services have been sought out by rich and poor alike because art, no matter how odd a form it takes, says something to everyone.

Such is the case for Karen Fiorito who was commissioned to paint an anti-Trump billboard (see article). As she relates:
“There have been a couple of people who have said they will come and get me, or that I should be sleeping with a gun underneath my pillow,” she said. “They are very determined to get under my skin.”
Fiorito has been an artist her entire life. She earned a master’s degree in arts from Arizona State University, and says the billboard is expected to remain up through the duration of Trump’s presidency.

“If things change or get worse, we might update it,” she said.

But for now, she says, she plans to lay low.

The billboard is pretty nasty. But the ones showing dead aborted fetuses are far worse.

These are threats, but probably do constitute illegal acts. The attacks on Trump supporters are real. Here are a few of them; I can easily find many more. http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/17/he...mp-supporters/

Well, it's certainly more believable than things like Mother Jones, Raw Story, Slate, and other sources I see being linked.

It's funny how the whiners never disputed the story, only the sources. But here's a few more to whine about:

https://cdanews.com/2017/03/donald-t...death-threats/

http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefi...receives-death

And for the record, here is the original story from the Arizona Republic which everyone is basing their story off of:

http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/...eats/99349252/

By comparison, note the Fox tabloid article which deliberately fails to mention the death threats:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/03/20...billboard.html

It's similar to that always factual farce called RT. Again, no mention of death threats:

https://www.rt.com/viral/381280-nazi...board-arizona/

You can be sure if an anti-Hillary billboard was up and the person was being threatened the Fox tabloid and fake site Breitbart would be all over it, screaming from the hilltops how freedom of expression was being trampled on by the left. But when it comes to their own people trampling on freedom of expression, crickets.

Typical and predictable hypocrites.

Let's be real here... the chances of you dying by your coffee table are higher than you getting killed over art, even if you were to draw Muhammad. So, this is a non-issue.

Except for the time it happened. And of course the other time it happened.

It's not about art, its about politics, and people do get killed over that.

Well doesn't that just sound awful.

Hopefully they step up to social justice Democrat level and follow through.

Death threats to Americans? Only a big deal when it's a foreigner threatening a veteran.
