Symbolism lost on liberals: Politicians want ‘sexist’ statue removed

Once again, America’s intellectually superior liberals, the same people who laud so-called art like “Piss Christ” and rave about the genius of Robert Mapplethorpe’s “Self Portrait with Whip Up Ass,” are demonstrating their hypocrisy. Now they’re horrified by a one hundred year old “sexist” statue in Queens, New York.

The New York Daily News reports the stupidity:

A controversial Queens statue, featured as an “Eyesore Next Door” in the Daily News, should be sold through an online classifieds site, according to a group of elected officials.

U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner said the city should ditch the statue, “Triumph of Civic Virtue,” because it is “sexist.”

Some community leaders have tried for years to get the city to pay for the restoration of the decaying statue.

Weiner and City Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras (D-Jackson Heights) — who want to sell the statue on craigslist to raise funds — said it is offensive because it depicts a nude man stepping on two women.

The statue, crafted more than 100 years ago, is supposed to depict civic virtue, triumphant over the twin sirens of vice and corruption
