NEA is strictly politicized

Again, why should taxpayers have to fund liberal propaganda? 

Recently funded projects:

- a play about activist lesbians who “are staunchly opposed to gun ownership.”

- $20,000 for a series of “climate change-themed public art installations” in Minneapolis

- a theatrical interpretation of President Obama’s deferred action immigration program for $40,000.

List goes on and on, see:

You can always point out something you don't like, but the majority of the grants is to provide artist with residencies.  A relative of mine used to live in one of those residencies as a struggling artist.  Now she has her own art shop and is doing very well.

Whether the NEA is politicized or not, it has no business being funded by public tax dollars. It's a complete waste of spending.

I'm sure that, now that she's successful, she'll pay it all back.

Why should tax payers pay for Ivanka's Trump's 300 Billion childcare plan?

This is a far better question
