Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti Calls Out Downtown Mural On Vortex Building A ‘Shameful Act of Anti-Semitism’

The mural is painted on a brick building that’s home to the Vortex, a 400-person event space in downtown Los Angeles. The Vortex said in a statement on Facebook that the mural was created several years ago to acknowledge the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as part of the “L.A. vs. War” art show.The company said it “stands for free expression” and that the artist “did not intend to express an anti-Semitic message.” It said it planned to host a public discussion about the controversy at the Olympic Boulevard event space.

A mural that depicts a Grim Reaper wearing a cloak covered with Stars of David, holding what appears to be a dead baby and a missile, was blasted by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office as a “shameful act of anti-Semitism.”

While Los Angeles mayor Garcetti rightly blasted the amazingly hateful and highly anti-semitic outdoor mural as disgusting, it’s worthy to note that the owners of the building on the which the mural was painted are calling it “free expression”. Hmm. I wonder what they would say if it was a mural blasting Islam or Muhammed. Would that still be considered valid ‘free expression’? Lol, I think you know the answer to that one.

“Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.” Psalm 129:5 (KJV)

We find ourselves in a weird, crazy time, and it is growing stranger by the minute. You can go to jail for crushing a baby turtle egg, but will be applauded as a ‘civil rights hero’ for murdering your own baby a day before it’s born. That’s the upside life we live in 2019. As for me, I will stand with the Jews as God’s chosen people no matter what the hateful and insane Liberals decide to do, think or say.

I sincerely hope that this article will help to bring about the removal of this hideous mural. And to all our loyal NTEB readers in the greater Los Angeles area, it would be great if y’all could step in and down something about it, thank you!

Downtown L.A. mural ‘shameful act of anti-Semitism,’ mayor’s office says

FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES: The mayor learned of the mural on Tuesday through posts on social media, said his spokesman, Alex Comisar.

“Imagery like this should have no place in our city,” Comisar said. “Mayor Garcetti was incredibly upset by it. We’re looking into the recourse that we have to have it taken down.”

The mural is painted on a brick building that’s home to the Vortex, a 400-person event space in downtown Los Angeles. The Vortex said in a statement on Facebook that the mural was created several years ago to acknowledge the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as part of the “L.A. vs. War” art show.

The company said it “stands for free expression” and that the artist “did not intend to express an anti-Semitic message.” It said it planned to host a public discussion about the controversy at the Olympic Boulevard event space.

“We believe his intent deserves considerable weight,” the Vortex said about the artist. “We invite those who feel otherwise to paint another mural next to it.”

The Anti-Defamation League on Tuesday called for the mural’s removal.

“For a venue that purports to welcome the community, the Vortex should join us in condemning hateful imagery that invokes anti-Semitic canards conflating Jews with death, snakes, bombs and killing babies,” the organization said in a statement. READ MORE
