Amazing story from our street art-loving friends at ANIMAL New York, who broke the news of a war monument in a Brooklyn park being replaced with a bust of Edward Snowden. It’s a pretty damn fascinating story in the wake of John Oliver’s discussion with Edward Snowden about the NSA keeping everyone’s dick pics on HBO last evening.
In the words of the freedom-loving Bros who brought the Snowden bust to the park in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn:
Our goal is to bring a renewed vitality to the space and prompt even more visitors to ponder the sacrifices made for their freedoms. We hope this inspires them to reflect upon the responsibility we all bear to ensure our liberties exist long into the future.
FREEDOM! USA! LIBERTY! USA! AMERICA! TAKE THAT, TERRORISTS AND COMMIE FUCKS! ROCK, FLAG, EAGLE!
Of course, it was promptly taken down. Ugh. Fuggin’ communists….
