This is seriously outrageous! A VETERAN artist painted a beautiful mural on the walls of a VA hospital in Western Colorado which depicted American military history including the Confederate flag! After all, the Rebel flag is a part of our history and heritage.

But the controversial flag has been declared by liberals to be racist. They want it removed and forgotten while they collect their welfare checks and food stamps, section 8 housing and whatever the hell it is these freeloading bottom feeders collect.

Now, Obama’s VA is ordering the artist to paint over the Confederate flag portion of the mural. If it were me I’d tell them to go screw themselves. They should just put a big painting of Obama and Sharpton and Michael Brown there and be done with it. Racist politically corrupt a holes.

A beautifully illustrated depiction of American war history is painted on walls in the canteen in the Grand Junction, Colorado Veterans Administration Medical Center. The mural was created by military veteran and painter, Lee Bowerman, whom local donors commissioned to do the work on behalf of the veterans served at the Western Colorado facility. Spanning all American wars, from the Revolutionary War, to present conflicts in the Middle East, the mural is a reverent reminder of generations of heroes who sacrificed all in the cause of freedom.

Recently, the Civil War portion of the mural was blocked by a tall poster, after complaints were issued about an image of the Confederate flag. In an Aug. 13 interview with Watchdog Arena, Paul Sweeney, Chief of Customer Relations and Public Affairs at the Grand Junction VA, indicated that he did not know how many complaints came in about the Confederate flag, but that the decision to cover the image was firm.

“The decision was made that we would have to modify the painting, so we called the artist and asked him to ‘rework’ that part of the mural,” Sweeney said. He told Watchdog Arena that artist Lee Bowerman agreed to make the changes and that the current Confederate flag would be repainted as an American flag.

When asked about who directed the ‘reworking’ of the mural, Sweeney claimed that the decision was not made locally. “It was outside of Grand Junction. It could have been regional or it could have been national,” he stated. He said he did not know how complaints made locally about the Confederate flag would have filtered up to higher levels within the V.A.

According to Sweeney, the artist quoted a “reasonable” figure of around $200 to cover and repaint the controversial portion of the mural. “I think we did the right thing in asking him [Bowerman] to come in and redo the work. It’s his vision, it’s his inspiration,” Sweeney said.

No. It is no longer his vision. You are demanding that he change his vision according to Obama’s standards. Look, I’ll pay the dude $2000 to refuse to change his vision. Don’t paint over your work dude. Tell these commies to pound sand. Fricking Marxist trash.
