Have you heard about the artist Wafaa Bilal's exhibit being closed? His Virtual Jihadi exhibit was closed due to any angry College Republican group. I first read about it on yahoo news and then found a recent interview with him where it was mentioned. The CR's on the campus where the exhibit was to be held stated that the art department there is a "haven for terrorist" all because Bilal's Virtual Jihadi installation, which is basically a game where Bush is killed by a terrorist that looks like Wafaa in the face. Bilal is no stranger to this sort of thing and it is not like he is some smuck off the streets. He teaches at SAIC! So what do you guys think about this? Don't you think we should all be concerned when exhibits are closed because of political reasons?
Here is a link to the interview
