CONSERVATIVES FIRED UP: CALL ON PUBLICLY FUNDED BROOKLYN MUSEUM TO CANCEL OFFENSIVE AND ANTI CHRISTIAN EXHIBITION
The Kings County Conservative Party calls on the Federal, State and Municipally funded Brooklyn Museum to cancel its upcoming Exhibition entitled “a Fire in My Belly” by David Wojnarowocz. The exhibition was terminated from the Smithsonian National Gallery and should not be housed at the museum. Some of the items said to be displayed include images of “ants crawling over the image of Jesus on a crucifix, two halves of a loaf of bread being sewn together, the bloody mouth of a man being sewn shut, a hand dropping coins, a man undressing, a man’s genitals, a bowl of blood, and mummified humans,” according to CNN.
As members of the community of interest, the Kings County Conservative Party are aghast. There is no redeeming social, scientific, political value or any value whatsoever to this exhibition, which breaches community standards and indeed any standards. When will the Brooklyn Museum learn? A private gallery can offend as many people as they want behind closed doors, but public institutions need to be accountable. We look forward to a resolution of this issue, either through the Museum coming to its senses and the sensibilities of its audience or through leadership on this issue.
