Political art by Natalie Buske Thomas: These works and others have been censored when shared on social media platforms (note: Natalie is no longer active on any social media). The sight of these works have also cost Natalie gallery showings, lost work, and incited a mob purge/terror campaign against her involving two well known “protest” groups. Whatever differences we may have, if we do not agree that humans should have the right to express our thoughts and feelings regarding government, society, and world events, we destroy ourselves. One man’s opinion does not silence another. We have laws to protect people from harassment, slander, libel, and threats. Those are sufficient, when enforced and proven in a court of law through evidence in front of a jury of our peers. Mob rule and muzzling unpopular opinion or dissent never helps the people, but always fosters oppression by the powerful few. Never stop raising your voice, even if you are falsely accused of “hate” or other non-criminal charges that deny your freedom to speak and hold opinions, thoughts, and emotions that others do not like. These are not crimes, and never will be. Those who state that they can determine the heart of man and declare it to be criminal, while no crimes have been committed, are lying. These lies can never overwhelm truth. Always honor yourself and humanity by saying what’s on your heart, even when others tell you that you have no right to do so.
Note: Unavailable as prints at this time: “Silenced”, “Frog Censorship”, and a few others.
