L.A. Street Artist Depicts GOP as Fossils-To-Be

L.A. Street Artist Depicts GOP as Fossils-To-Be

Is the GOP on the path to extinction?

Employees at Los Angeles’ La Brea Tar Pits arrived Monday morning to find three signs hung on an outdoor display of elephants. The elephants stand in and around one of the museum’s tar pits that have seeped natural asphalt for tens of thousands of years. The La Brea Tar Pits and Museum is an active excavation site where archeologists have found and continue to find countless fossils dating back to the Pleistocene epoch, or the earth’s last ice age.

A ‘hello my name is JEB’ tag hangs from the tusks of an elephant partially immersed in tar as a visibly worried baby elephant draped with ‘Rubio 2016’ watches on the perimeter. Another elephant labeled ‘establishment GOP’ observes the scene nearby. The scene is rich with anti-establishment overtones. Whether one agrees with the artist or not, it was a clever move.

The display was the work of conservative street artist Sabo, an ex-marine most known for his drive-by postings of politically inflammatory artwork. True to his abrasive form, he took to Facebook and commented on what he referred to as a “La Brea Tea Party.”

True to his abrasive form, Sabo took to Facebook with the following:

LA BREA TAR PITS 2016 – HAPPY NEW YEAR AND DEATH TO ALL ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS!!!

– THE LA BREA TAR PARTY!

Although most of his work targets Democrat politicians and liberal celebrities, Sabo is becoming increasingly known for his criticism of the Republican establishment. His ‘Blacklisted and Loving It’ poster made rounds across the internet in 2014 after several copies were appeared on the streets of Beverly Hills before a Ted Cruz rally.

Oh that’s just darn near perfect! Topped off by the little Rubio!

Kudos and thanks for sharing — first place I’ve seen it is here.

i’d list Sabo as the prime suspect in this outrage…

he’s awesome.

Cute stunt!

But I think those are mammoths, not elephants.

To be clear (given the article title), he is targeting the GOPe, not the GOP per se. Like cockroaches, they’ll never be extinct, they do belong on the endangered species list. They are lemmings once again scurrying off the cliff as we speak, part of some bizarre quadrennial ritual of political suicide.

Is that mammoth/mastodon on the right Mitch McConnell?

Tar them all. And feather them!

Gotta love Sabo!
