A mural in the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia recently garnered international attention as none other than Hillary Clinton was featured in a bikini, carrying $100 bills. Evidently, the politically correct police promptly came and out and denounced such a sacrilege. According to the Guardian, the local council said the mural “contravened its gender equity policy.”
“We believe that this mural is offensive because of the depiction of a near-naked woman, not on the basis of disrespect to Hillary Clinton, and it is not in keeping with our stance on gender equity,” the council chief executive, Stephen Wall, said. “We contacted Victoria police to provide their opinion on the matter, and they deemed the mural to be offensive and in contravention of the Graffiti Prevention Act 2007, which [the] council is responsible for enforcing.”
The local artist, known as Lushlux, was threatened with prosecution and fines if he did not remove the mural. He complied, but not quite as expected by the local bureaucrats.
In an ironic turn of events, Lushlux decided to depict Hillary wearing a burqa, and left a message for the ultra PC, hyper-sensitive government folks. “If this Muslim woman offends u, u r a bigot, racist, sexist Islamophobe.” Be careful what you wish for...
We assume this new mural depiction would flatter Hillary, as Islam is a religion of peace. Or maybe not: On Wednesday, the wall had been painted completely black.
