Silencing the arts

Eve L. Ewing penned an op-ed piece in the New York Times that convincingly laid out the real danger behind defunding the National Endowment for the Arts, which Dear Leader has proposed doing in his budget:
Much like the disappearance of data from government websites and the exclusion of critical reporters from White House briefings, this move signals something broader and more threatening than the inability of one group of people to do their work. It’s about control. It’s about creating a society where propaganda reigns and dissent is silenced.
Dear Leader and his advisors don't like critical voices. Dear Leader wants to drown them out, as he repeatedly showed during his campaign. He has a thin skin and absolutely no respect for those who disagree with him. But it's our government, not his.
