Breitbart's Big Hollywood did the lead in, the "Pregame Report" linked here.

LOTS of links in the article, I strongly recommend you read it from the web site & follow the links

But, there is even a larger issue that hasn’t yet received much attention in the press. Among the Obama Administration officials on the call were Buffy Wicks, Office of Public Engagement and the lead White House official on the President’s Serve.Gov initiative to promote national service. Also on the call was Nell Abernathy, Director of Outreach for Serve.Gov. One of their main goals on the call, it seems, was to encourage artists to produce works that would reinforce the President’s call for service; specifically through the Serve.Gov web-portal.

As Dana Loesch recently reported at Big Government, the Serve.Gov portal funnels citizens to volunteer or service projects connected with ACORN and other leftist groups. The taxpayer-funded website is evolving into a cyber-recruitment tool for the progressive movement.

So what did happen on that call? Was the NEA coordinating with the White House to push their agenda on a group of artists eager for and reliant upon the NEA for grants, or is the NEA telling the truth that this call “was not a means to promote any legislative agenda”?

Today the actual article went up on Breitbart's Big Government

If you’ve ever wondered–and worried–about where government support of the arts leads, look no further than the full transcript of an August 10 telecon between an official at the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and a group of “independent artists from around the country.” The short version: It leads to the use of taxpayer-funded culture as a means of propagandizing for specific, partisan political aims. Which corrupts not just art but artists.

Again, go to the original article at the link and read it with all the supporting links & evidence.

So it seems, that the corruption also travels into the arts world. And the real *shocker* with this revelation is that it is DIRECTLY linked to the Obama Administration.

Hope & Change?

I know it's not FDR he's (Obama) emulating.

More Chavez, and Venezuela.

Nice find.

Thanks Mike, there's more, I just posted a new thread about Bank of America being ACORN's partner & major funder.

How much corruption will have to be exposed before people finally get PISSED OFF and MAKE it STOP?
