Tucker is running the Arnautoff story for the second day in a row. I’m really glad he isn’t letting it die.
He showed the school hearing where students are wailing about how the mural is hurting them. It’s an absolute disgrace how impressionable, hormonal kids are being riled up by disgusting, evil adults to attack the art. Instead of educating the kids on the art and the talented artist who created it, they are winding them up into hysterical outbursts. As a teacher, I find this absolutely unprofessional and wrong. This could be a great opportunity to teach students something really fascinating. Arnautoff was such an interesting fellow with a career in art that students really need to hear about.
It’s not only art that’s being destroyed but an opportunity to teach. What a disgrace.
A guy called Ethan Bearman came on Tucker to defend the destruction of the mural saying it’s ok because “we have photographs of it.” I mean, seriously.
Bearman also said that the mural lowers test scores.
I look at folks like Bearman and think, “I can’t be on whatever side such people are. I just can’t.”
