Protesters banned from the Smithsonian for life

An update to my earlier post on the art that was censored by the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery under pressure from the Catholic League.  Two brave protesters (one wearing the removed video art on an ipad around his neck) were forcibly removed from the institution, and banned for life.  The 1987 video -- a piece made by the artist while he was dying of AIDS, about the ostracized sufferers of the 1980's is hard to watch and intentionally so.  See it HERE.

  1. Can't believe they would ban the protesters for life, although if they keep caving to radical religious preferences soon they'll have to censor everything and there won't be any reason to visit anyway.
