[Andrew Sargus] Klein gives us a splendid insight into the central conceit of the liberal mind: Nothing exists — or has existed, or ever will exist — unless it’s funded with federal taxpayer dollars.
Therefore, to oppose federal funding for “the arts” is to be anti-art, just as opposing federal funding for public schools is to be anti-education. Such is the shriveled state of the liberal psyche that it never even occurs to these dimwits to let people keep their own money to spend on whatever they want. You want to renovate a theater? Go renovate a theater. But don’t bring the IRS down on my back to force me to pay for your tastes in architecture.
