Oregon – Anti-Trump Gallery Illustration Taken Down after Online Outrage

Thanks to the great outrage over the obvious ISIS-inspired depiction of a ‘Jihadi John’ beheading of US President Trump, the One Grand art gallery decided, in the end, to take down its graphic window display.

Many on social media had called to the gallery owner directly, stating they thought the anti-Trump image was "classless," "shameless" and "totally disgusting."

Mr Lar Larson, a Portland-based radio talk show host, warned during his weekly show about the possible impact of such a violent display: "Some Lefty is going to make that kind of threat, which constitutes a crime, to make somebody fear for their life or safety or those around them.”

“And that conservative person, who is being assaulted merely because they support a particular person who is the President of the United States today, is going to act to protect themselves. Somebody is going to get hurt or killed, I believe that is probably likely."

Many online social commenters claim that these kinds of depictions will eventually lead to a second US civil war, where the far left will be pit against the far right.

Meanwhile, Portland police said they did not receive any official complaint whereas the U.S. Secret Service spokesman acknowledged the agency was aware of the gallery’s depiction of the president but does not give any further comment about future investigation.

The owner stated he had received a call on his answering machine stating his house would ‘go up in flames with his family in it.’

The gallery did continue to sell prints of Trump’s face being beheaded, with profits of those sales going to Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and the National Immigration Law Center (according to an Instagram post).

Many likened the ‘art’ to the image of comedian Ms Kathy Griffin who showed herself at a photo shoot as she held a decapitated head resembling POTUS back in 2016.

The guy looks like a real loser! That should be considered hate speech and a threat to our President. He looks muslim, should be deported. If that window was in my town it would have been broke first day or a bucket of paint thrown on it! These creeps need to go, they want to kill our President they should not live in this country!

Don't be surprised that some anti-left extremist of equal and opposite vitriol follows this family around. That's what so weird about polar opposites. They can be just as stupid and the left is too damn ignorant to think about that. The get in your face can get ugly in a hurry when your that out of touch.
