GEORGE W. BUSH UNVEILS PAINTING OF THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD TO STUNNED AUDIENCE



Dallas Texas – Former president George W. Bush, 68, debuted his latest art exhibition to an intimate audience of close friends and family this past weekend at a small art gallery in Dallas, Texas. However, it was one painting in particular that left some spectators stunned, confused, and heading for the exits.

The very last portrait in Mr. Bush’s new “The Art of Religion: Diplomacy through Tolerance and Faith,” exhibit was reportedly that of the Prophet Muhammad, an image that is forbidden in Islamic faith and punishable by death.

Details are sketchy but according to wait staff, the 43rd President of the United States unveiled each painting one at a time, offering a few words about each piece. One onlooker who wishes to remain anonymous reports, “Outta nowhere I hear this collective gasp, I turn around to see what’s going on and half the guests are scurrying for their coats.” Asked about Mr. Bush’s reaction, “He seemed confused, someone from the audience came up and threw his coat over the painting and walked him (Mr. Bush) to the back. (It) was crazy.” Asked if it was indeed the prophet Muhammad depicted in the painting our source offers, “I believe so, yeah.”

The question now is -was this another Bush blunder or was it deliberate? The timing seems suspect considering the recent terrorist shooting at the “Draw Muhammad Contest” in nearby Garland, Texas. The controversial contest, sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) has sparked intense debate over what is and what is not acceptable free speech. If Mr. Bush was trying to make a political statement you would think security on hand would have been much tighter for the event.

1. I suspect satire

This is the second "story" today sourced to nationalreport.net that (1) is not credible, (2) somehow involved Islam, (3) had the same smiling faces of Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin smiling at the top of the story when I clicked on the link.

I don't know what this is, but it can't be real.

2. Same As the Other Thread

The one about sharia law in Dearborn, MI.

This one, however, should not have been done. Not everyone would realize that it was a joke story and there could be some bad consequences. I may not be very fond of GWB, but I certainly don't want some idiot to get all pissed off about the piece and do something stupid.

5. I'm sure both President Bushes

as well as most other recent presidents are threatened by Muslim extremists on a daily basis. That's why they have Secret Service protection. Stories like this, satire or not, would not be much of a game changer.

9. Muslims have at least 666 legitimate reasons to hate the Chimp

I doubt this satirical article will make much of a difference in that respect.

On Sun May 17, 2015, 05:45 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

http://www.discussionist.com/1014138921

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is uncivil, off-topic, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Poster is spreading lies posting this without saying it is fake news. This is a ToS violation and the height of uncivility

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of Discussionist members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sun May 17, 2015, 06:01 PM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I agree with the alerter. The source is easily found to be a satirical site. Publishing fake news about a person to score a political point is dishonest, and calls into question the integrity of this site.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: If asked to serve on a jury I will always vote to LEAVE IT --> VOTE
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: passing off obvious satire as NEWS.

And it's an offensive news story at that... What's next? Bat Boy goes to Congress in the POLITICS section?
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Posting lies is a TOS violation? That would leave one side of the debate here with very little to talk about. Interesting and humorous that they take such offense when the "other" side does it. Leave.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: It is far from being "the height of uncivility."
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Atilla, find something else to redirect your anger. Hide this.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.
