Danes "Beat" bho loving artist-"..."go home, Yankee hipster"...

something smells about this-last two paragraphs lead me to believe the Fairey (artist) did "recognize" his assailants---
He is well known for his HOPE POSTER-

last two paragraphs--
"The artist said he had not filed a police report following the attack in Copenhagen. "I did not know any of the people or get a great look at them, so it seemed pointless," he said.

"I'm not a huge fan of the cops anyway. The only thing I could see coming out of it was further media commentary like 'street artist whiner Shepard Fairey can't hold it down in a fight so he snitches to the cops'."

my question-how can one SNITCH- if one does NOT know the assailants? and why would he care if the DANISH media label him a WHINER-or a SNITCH--

thank you Fat Scribe- for taking me back -enjoyed reading my own comments : - ) - BTW- google has your '09 post w/ mine :-)

BTW-the Danes did not give up their GUNS as did most other EU citizens!

"Fairey subsequently collaborated with former members of the 69 youth house to redecorate the lower half of the installation. His new version contains images of riot police and explosions, together with a new, more combative slogan: "Nothing forgotten, nothing forgiven"."

From the sounds of it, he's quite happy to hang out with these scumbags, so i guess he lay down with dogs and woke surprised that he has fleas.

i've written about Shepard Fairey over at FatScribe.

http://fatscribe.com/2009/08/socialism-and-politics-of-street.html

no one deserves to be attacked physically b/c some dutch scumbag dislikes a work of art. i wish to gawd that shep and his friend would have kicked the asses of these two criminals.

regardless of his political persuasion, he is a talented artist. his obey the giant series is legend. his contribution to politics will be long remembered into the next several centuries of US public policy studies.

however, my favorite day was when a little known chicago student took shep's AP photo-cum-political-poster and tweaked bho #44's visage into the joker.

now we're cooking with gas!
