I am just as offended by the following photo, that shows an anti-globalization demonstrator wearing an Ariel Sharon mask and a yellow Star of David during a demonstration at yesterday's annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland; but I also defend the right of these protesters to make their point freely.
Just as offending to me is Serrano's Piss Christ, depicted here. Although I don't have a constitutional right not to be offended, here we no longer have an expression of "free speech." I object to my tax dollars being used to fund this (or for that matter any) expenditure by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
