"Rise" is the key word here. Make a note whenever you hear it.

Once again I am reminded of why I live where I live.

Bilboards are against the law here. They trash up the scenery.

When a billboard calls for violence....and it is called art...

Then the opposition puts up their own billboard stating, "Let's meet their violence tenfold,"....and call that art...

...and then the revolutionary socialist apologists start apologizing for their art calling for violence because they thought the artists on the other side would back down....

THEN THAT'S WHAT IS CALLED 'THE ART OF WAR.'

I mean, just saying from a pragmatic viewpoint that art is in the eye of the beholder, right?

Well, it might not mention 'race' specifically. But it does allude to 'violence'. Even if they are calling their violence an act of art.

So goes the subtitle of 'Revolutionary Art Forms.'

Albeit, any art form can be met with a competing art form. I mean, Leonardo and Michelangelo were adversaries.

Whether race is mentioned specifically or not, the artistic message for violence is loud and clear.

Why. That could be called 'Explosive Art.'

Hmmmm.....ain't art fun and all

Anybody and everybody has the right to call for a revolt for whatever reason they feel necessary.;

Just remember that when someone calls for a revolt,. someone else is likely to call for a counter-revolt.

And that is what might be called 'A Line of Fire Art Form?'

War is art. Art is war.

WAR ART....

This billboard is nothing new in the history of Mexican Revolutionary Art.

Well, shoot.....pardon the pun.....people make a big deal about the murals in the Denver Airport, and all.

Let's just say that the billboard's artistic call for revolutionary violence has been documented and understood. Everyone can debate the artistic merits of the billboard. Cause nobody's going to debate that the artistic message of the billboard is for violence.

Now, you want to debate the artistic merits of violence, okey dokey..

If this billboard was in English and said rise up. with mob of people holding signs.. most everyone on here would be "hell yeah! rise up against the feds! ron paul! yar yar yar!" (for the record i love ron paul)


but no since its in spanish you automatically assume something else.

The billboard says nothing about starting a revolt.

But even if it did.....from what I understand.

People on ATS call for revolts all the time...I guess as long as you're a white American christian male it's a good thing.

A mexican American does it and they're an evil racist?



Funny.

Ohhhhhhh..,...it's all off topic whenever you socialist apologists get your panties in a wad?

Now, let's see.....Leonardo's fresco 'The Last Supper is Art.'

A billboard in Austin calling for violence is what? Oh, you say that's art, too.

Uh, huh......


Hey man, do you know how to read? Did you read the first sentence in my post?......I don't like the billboards depiction either, I agree that is very thought provoking. It will mean many different things to many different people, but what the artist stated in the video is the true meaning of the billboard.

This is the USA, a melting pot of numerous different cultures and races. Regardless of that and the fact that the SW USA is thick with Mexican culture, A public billboard clearly depicting people uprising in what seems to be a riot or protest scene could definetly start trending, not only with other artists, but with the people who see the billboards and understand the meaning.

If I were to drive by that, I would not understand what it said...."Rise up, My people". If it were in English, on a billboard, in Mexico, with an American Flag......Would there or would there not be uproar?....You bet your a$$ there would!

You gotta see both sides.

If it is so bad here, you can go back to Mexico......But if you come here legally, and do it right, I welcome you, I love Mexican culture, I've been to Mexico several times, hell I am 1/4 Mexican myself. But billboards like this in a country you escaped to for a better life are imho kind of hypocritical.

Mexicans need to rise up against the drug lords which are pretty much the government and take their own country back.

And coltcall...........You sound like you just want to argue like a little kid.......grow up.

What? I'm worried about that there little poster?

I didn't post it here. I wasn't even thinking about it until you socialists decided to make an issue out of violent art forms.

Here's the inevitable end of the billboard.

Motorists are driving along. They see the billboard. They are NOT watching some video explaining the billboard. The billboard calls for violence.

The motorist is reminded that their automobile is like their home the castle, that they can legally carry a handgun in their automobile.

Cause there's this billboard on the highway that is easily interpreted by many as a call for violence.

Now, if the billboard was an artistic interpretation of a naked lady, those motorists would get different interpretations of the work of art.

But, alas, the billboard is supraliminally calling for violence.

Hey, about time the artist take responsibility for their work? No?

The billboard presents the archetypal images of raised, clinched fists.

That's a universal call for violence.

Regardless of what language the caption. The raised clinched fist is recognized worldwide as a sign of violence.

Two fingers extended in a V is an archetypal symbol for peace....in whatever language.

Paid for by city tax dollars no less.


That pretty much says it all as to how far gone our country is, doesn't it? If there are people out there who don't see a problem with things today, they have their eyes closed very tightly.


really seems like you have your eyes closed tightly? Take a moment and research the program and think about what the picture says (dont just let Alex jones spoon feed you) It says lift yourself up.. not viva la revolucion. It is a city program that has sponsors. That does mean taxpayers paid for the sign to be put up.


Don't make me laugh. Lift yourself up? That interpretation does't fit with the imagery at all but nice try. The sign is racist period. Take that sign with a similar tag line and put white people on it and you would be crying a river right now. A sign like that shouldn't be promoted by the city, sorry.

That sign deserves criticism, it was poorly done and thought out and doesn't convey a positive message regardless or your assertions I was being spoon fed anything.

If you ask me most art that is publicized is an attempt to divide not unite. And this is all about division...

No offense to Native Americans but...they were once from another country and migrated to the Americas.

If you are born in a country doesn't that make you a Native? If not how many generations does it take to make you one?

If you claim to be Mexican shouldn't you be in Mexico then? Wouldn't the same be said of African or Polish for that matter?

If you love your homeland so much and promote it why don't you live there? Why stay in a country that is not your home country that you love so dearly?

Racism in any form had it's place and time last Century! As did Nationalism...it's time to move on.

At what point do you become a human with out a race label and call Earth your home?

Of course they would be all for it. Only white male conservatives are allowed to call for revolutions.


All non-whites must stay in their place.

I fail to see the problem with this poster..... I grew up in texas el paso. very mixed culture there. In school I used to be hassled by students and teachers for speaking spanish. The teachers only spoke english in class even if they knew spanish.

Nothing she stated in that video said to me to revolt. It said yeah you have mexican heritage and it is okay to be that way.

I will be honest. People look down on you for not being white. I experienced all that crap when I came to the midwest. When I would date women here their family usually had a problem with it and they gave me # about it simply because I was not white.

After graduating college and got my first job one of the first things said to me by one guy I was working with for three months. "when I heard you were coming to work for us and I knew you were mexican I didin't know what to expect but you are like us you are alight."

I even got some pretty odd comments when I married my wife like wow a mexican and a russian how does that work.

You are made to feel bad for being what you are whether it is on purpose or not.



So I get her message and it has nothing to do with taking over the USA.
