As a bare minimum, I'm thinking that 'shocking' and 'provocative' artwork shouldn't just be another variation on something that's been done approximately 800 000 times before. Ditto, shouldn't a verdict of 'courageous' actually require facing some risk ?

Hey, if anyone's boldly sticking two fingers up to the zeitgeist, it's the protesters. How come we never see glowing tributes to their courage ? Surely their work counts as 'thought provoking', even if the thought it provokes goes something along the lines of
'giving house room to people who want to insult your customer's deeply-held beliefs probably isn't such a good idea'.

Bottom line: same ol', same ol'. Liberals claim the right to insult and abuse the Right, then when the return fire comes in, they try and cast themselves as, well, Jesus on the Cross.
