It’s a marked improvement over the original by any standard.
I don’t see how anyone could consider this sort of work “vandalism.” The crosswalk is now more informative and artistically profound.
The question mark invites the viewer to think and reflect, but unlike worthless modern art which is designed merely to confuse, the artist here gives clues that will alert the art connoisseur to the answer he seeks.
Unfortunately, journalists have no appreciation for art – or memes.
Someone painted a green question mark and cloud on Burnaby’s first rainbow crosswalk overnight. The crosswalk was installed Thursday by the City of Burnaby in anticipation of Burnaby Pride event on Saturday.
A question mark… and cloud… Goyim, have you learned nothing?
These retards don’t even realize the question mark is dotted with a star of David, and that the “cloud” is in the shape of the Platonic ideal of a Middle-Eastern merchant.
The work is an obvious homage to the classic masterpiece by the artist known as 4chan.
I’m not surprised at this stunning lack of culture, coming as it does from a journalist.
Members of the Burnaby Pride planning committee woke up to the sad news this morning that someone had vandalized their new rainbow crosswalk.
The crosswalk, located on Jubilee Avenue across from the baseball fields, was painted by the City of Burnaby on Thursday in anticipation of the city’s first Pride event, happening Saturday (tomorrow).
Evelyn McGowan, from the Burnaby Youth Hub and one of the organizers of Burnaby Pride, said she was disappointed to hear about the vandalism.
Saying this is vandalism is like saying Michelangelo “vandalized” the ceiling of the Sistine chapel.
“The Pope said he was disappointed to hear about the vandalism.” Not.
“The rainbow crosswalk was installed as a symbol of hope and love, inclusion and belonging and to recognize and celebrate the LGBTQ2S+ community in Burnaby, which exists and has always existed, and vandalism to this crosswalk shows a fundamental disrespect for the residents of Burnaby, particularly the LGBTQ2S+ community,” she said.
The acronym keeps growing like a tumor…
I’ll just presume the “+” means every imaginable perversion known to man is included in that group. Pedophiles, zoophiles, necrophiliacs… You name it.
While the crosswalk will be repaired in time for tomorrow’s Pride street party, McGowan said the vandalism is a good reminder of the work that still needs to be done to ensure the LGBTQ2S+ community feels welcome and safe in Burnaby.
“I was disappointed, but I also see this as an opportunity for deeper community dialogue and understanding around identities, and it’ll hopefully help to build a more compassionate and unified community,” she said.
A community unified around the values of homosexualism – which is to say, on the rejection of all moral values except hedonism.
The brave soul responsible for improving Burnaby’s shrine to decadence with a holy merchant meme is a saintly memetic warrior fighting for the dignity of his city.
He’s the hero Burnaby needs, but doesn’t deserve.
