From the Washington Examiner:
Buried in the interior appropriations bill headed to President Obama’s desk is a big spending increase for a controversial agency that his White House staff aims to use as artistic cover for creating political propaganda. National Endowment for the Arts’s annual spending goes from $155 million to $167.5 million, the most since the Clinton administration. A mere $12 million in a budget with $1.4 trillion in deficits might seem trifling. But documents obtained by Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act request leave no doubt that Obama aides meant to put those tax dollars to work paying “artists” to create posters and other propaganda paraphernalia supporting the Obama agenda.
Propoganda, not just for facist regimes and communists any more. Can you imagine the outrage from the left if George Bush had tried to employ artists to push his agenda with taxpayer dollars?
E-mails revealed by Judicial Watch show a phone conference was arranged between the White House Public Engagement Office and the National Endowment for the Arts to recruit artists to create art to push the Obama Administration’s agenda.
