Another WTF Moment.

If you live in Miami, you will face both the best, the weirdest and the worst of multiculturalism. I love being in a multicultural world of foods: Rotis one day, BBQ another (And at the Hitching Post you can have the choice of your favorite meat with baked beans or Cuban black beans) and get some Argentinian or Brazilian Churrasco. Nothing is more confusing that listening to 3 fans blasting the last season of Dolphins Football in English spoken with Creole, Portuguese and Southern accents. At the end, you get used to it since that is Miami.

But this is a wee bit too much:

I found this Jihadi/Hamaz/Gaza Strip revolutionary bullcrap in the Miami Art District. I am sure it means some multicultural “artistic” statement for some “enlightened” (with a very dim bulb) artist, but I fail to see it. Just another load of Islamofacism in our streets yet I might be the Homeland Security Domestic Terrorist suspect.

  1. He’s claiming ‘fair use’ under copyright law. However, ‘fair use’ stipulates that one must not make a profit on derivative works, which he did. I don’t think that the AP is *too* upset over it given that they were in the pocket of Obama to begin with and the poster helped popularize him among the drug-addled youth.

    Fairey’s work is creepy, especially since he admits its based on ‘socialist realism’ like in those old life-size pictures that the Communist Parties would hang of people like Stalin, Mao, and Castro around cities.

    And people still wear shirts with the HOPE picture on it around here. The only other political figures I see on T-shirts are Guevara and Mugabe. I don’t think the connection is accidental.
