A Republican congressman took matters into his own hands Friday and personally removed a painting depicting police officers as pigs that a colleague had allowed to be displayed at the U.S. Capitol complex.

“I was angry,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told FoxNews.com. “I’ve seen the press [reporting] on this for about a week or so. … I’m in the Marine Corps. If you want it done, just call us.”

Hunter said he walked over to the artwork Friday morning with a few colleagues and unscrewed it. He then delivered it to the office of Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., the congressman whose office had allowed the piece to be displayed. The painting, hanging since June, was done by a high school student who had won Clay’s annual Congressional Art competition.

The piece drew outrage, however, from law enforcement groups and fellow lawmakers.

As for whether the painting will stay down, Hunter said: “Lacy can put it back up, I guess, if he wants to … but I’m allowed to take it down.”

    Good to know there is representation in DC that is willing to stand for all American citizens rather than a select few.

  • suz

    Any congress man or woman that allows this to go back up should have any security pulled from them. I mean bodyguards , etc.

  • Grim Reaper

    It is high time to take out all the trash that is infecting our nation. Kudos to you from a former Navy Corpsman who was proud to serve with Marines like you.

  • Rodney Steward

    Glad to see a man still has ba$$s in that twisted state, and if the man puts it back up, this time when you take it down, tell him this is his new butt plug and show him how to insert it!!

    • Jo Ann Kowalski

      I have an idea for a geat painting. All congress n senators depicting as clowns with puppet strings

      • Rodney Steward

        Yep, but I’d like to see those strings around their necks!!

  • Howie Subnick

    I SPENT 4 YEARS IN THE NAVY AND 32 YEARS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED IF LACY CLAY HAS TO DIAL 911 I SUGGEST HE CALL A TAXI! WHAT A FIRST CLASS MORON! ANOTHER DEMO SHOWS HOW EDUCATED HE IS. I WILL LEAVE THESE WORDS OF WISDOM FOR MR. CLAY. “KISS MY EVER LOV’IN ASS”.

    MASONS AND ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTITIES IT IS PAST TIME TO QUIT PLAY ACTING AND START WORKING TO SAVE THIS COUNTRY, LIKE MASONS DID THE FIRST 60 YEARS. BEFORE MUSLIMS TAKE US OVER AND STOP US HERE.

    I AM A 32 DEGREE MASON, WITH NEARLY 60 YEARS OF SERVICE AND I CAN TAKE A STAND. A KOREAN WAR VET 51/53. I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT JOHNSON’S TAX EXAMPTION CLAUSE DID FOR THIS COUNTRY.

    IF OUR FIRST PRESIDENT, GEORGE WASHINGTON A MASTER OF HIS LODGE TOOK A STAND, SO CAN YOU AND IF YOU DO NOT, YOU ARE TRYING TO DESTROY MY COUNTRY. HE DID NOT HIDE.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS MOOSE, ELKS,AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE RUNNING AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE MOST QUALIFIED.

    TRUMP HAS SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH WHAT THE TAX EXAMPT DEAL THAT JOHNSON PUT ON, KEEPING TAX EXEMPT ENTITIES FROM TALKING POLITICS.

    WE MUST FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY OR LOSE IT, THE MUSLIMS ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT OVER AND THE BIASED MEDIA AND POLITICIANS ARE TOO STUPID TO TELL THE PUBLIC.

    IF WE DO NOT STICK TOGETHER AS A UNIT, THEN WE ARE DONE FOR. THE AMISH PEOPLE VOTED AS A UNIT FOR TRUMP AND GAVE HIM PA., OH., MICH., IOWA, FLA., NEARLY VA., AND HELPED IN IND. THIS SHOW WHAT CHRISTIAN PEOPLE CAN DO WHEN WE STICK TOGETHER.

    GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015. WE CAN CHANGE THE DIRECTION OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING.

    MASONS HAD 14 PRESIDENTS AND 18 VICE PRESIDENTS, THE FIRST 100 YEARS AND WE DESIGNED WASHINGTON, DC. BUT BECAUSE OF A PLAN BY JOHNSON TO TAKE AWAY OUR TAX EXAMPTION WE ARE NOT ACTIVE IN POLITICS.

    TRUMP SAID HE WOULD DO AWAY WITH THE ABOVE LAW.

    I VOTED FOR TRUMP. IF YOU GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, YOU WILL KNOW WHY.

    A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. LET US HOPE AND PRAY TRUMP ENFORCES THIS LAW.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVEL OF THIS WORLD.

    GRAND LODGE IN WASHINGTON, AND GRAND LODGES IN EACH STATE HAD BETTER WAKE UP OR WE WILL LOSE ALL PRIVELAGES IF THERE IS A MUSLIM TAKE OVER AND SO WILL ALL TAX EXAMPTS.

    BELIEVERS IN CHRIST STICK TOGETHER, THIS IS WHAT MILLIONS AMISH PEOPLE DID. 30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP. THERE COULD BE 20 MILLION AMISH IN THIS COUNTRY.

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, IOWA AND HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA.

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN.

    I BELIEVE WE HAVE BEEN SET UP BY HILLARY, OBAMA, KERRY, SOROS, AND THE BIASED MEDIA AT A TRY FOR A MUSLIM TAKEOVER, IF NOT, WHY ARE THERE A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMS. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

    OH, I HAVE KEEP RECORDS OF ALL THINGS THAT HAS HAPPENED THE LAST 8 YEARS AND HAVE FACTS AND FIGURES IF ANY OF YOU PEOPLE DOUBT ME.

    SHARE, SHARE, SHARE THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

    • Wingedgodd3ss

      Thank you for your service. I agree with what you said. I’m a practicing, weekly mass attending Catholic and this is the first time I ever heard a priest specifically direct church members to vote for someone and he said Trump. I don’t know how someone can call themselves a Catholic and ever vote democrat but there are a lot. I don’t know if it was a directive from the arch diocese but I hope so. I hope Catholics return to their core beliefs and vote conservative. Christians need to mobilize, organize and be involved.

  • Robert Pekarik

    Fill the perverted state of California with Marine’s, Navy Seals and Army Rangers and let them roam the streets for about 2 years. The first ones to go will be the corrupt to the core democrats. Imprison them in San Francisco and instead of a sanctuary city it can be transformed into a mental institution.

  • justinwachin

    Maybe congressman Clay should forego any police protection if he feels that way about law enforcement. I’m glad Rep. Hunter took the “artwork” down. It’s refreshing to see a congressman with integrity and love of country.

    Surely the people of Missouri can come up with someone better than Lacy Clay to send to Washington.

    What does this say about the teaching and the values that are being allowed and promoted within the Public School System. Or the ethics and morals of those responsible to the people of this nation, time for a serious wake-up.

    For this to have been allowed all these years is a testament to what O and his minions really are because a Real President would have had this removed long ago.

    The age of Law and Order is back in town and my sincere hopes are, after all these years of a Theater of the Bold and the Traitors every single person on that Hill who has done anything against this country is taken out.

    There is so much Swamp and so few years for Trump to clean it out. Just as he said when running I can get it started but it will be up to the people to keep it going. Reminding me of what Ben Franklin said to the lady after the Constitution written and she asked: ” What have you given us?” “A Republic, Madame if you can keep it.” Well folks we lost it for eight years and so much like the Transgender diktat, ordering all Public schools to allow members of one biological sex to use the showers, locker rooms, and restrooms if opposite sex can be taken down. This diktat, like Islam, was only satisfied with total submission.

    Good bye to so many wrongs perpetrated on the American people, like Joe Biden said: “IT IS OVER.”

      Amen…..SEMPER FI !

  • mort_f

    Researched google. Rep. Lacy’s father was a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus. As it is written: (Bad) apples do not fall far from the tree. Like father, like son. Didn’t research demographics of his district, but I can guess.

    • Rick

      Typical BLM racist BS!

  • Vernon Geberth

    Good for him. Interesting that it took a former MARINE to do what was right

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      it is just the begining

      • Wingedgodd3ss

        Did you really? Used to be a liberal?

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          yes

          • Wingedgodd3ss

            What changed for you? Seriously I would love to know!!

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            I changed during the Carter years, when I woke up to the fact that liberal did not mean liberal.

          • Wingedgodd3ss

            Yeah Carter really did suck but I don’t think the media sucked like they do now…or the schools…

          • used_to_be_a_liberal

            very true.

    • Mike

      What gets me is ? How did a picture depicting police officers as pigs ever win the contest in the first place. I would have had that child expelled from the school with a F. I’ll bet someday that kid will need the police to come to his rescue for something, and I can only hope they get their TO LATE. It’s Spanking TIME !!!!!!

      • Vernon Geberth

        That was the Obama White House and the stupid Racist Congressmen in the Black Caucus showing their true feelings about law enforcement. Well there is a New Sheriff in town and his name is Donald Trump. Maybe now we can make America Great Again

        • Mike

          They replaced Sheriff Joe in Arizona with a POS. And have done just about everything they can do to put the police down, I guess we the people will be expected to take the law into our own hands. So obam can try and enforce martial law, Hemmmm let’s see what the numbers would be like . My guess is around 4 to 5 thousand pissed of Americans to one police officer who will side with the people anyway, they won’t be able to use our American soldiers either, NATO military start pushing Americans around, = dead NATO soldiers, we don’t want to but we will not allow our own government to destroy our society, we will not be ruled by the people we elect. They need to be removed from our country…..

        KINDS OF TELL YOU HOW and BY WHAT THIS (D) FUBAR STUPID IDIOT MEMBER OF THE BLACK CONGRESSIONAL CAUCUS GETS VOTED BY ….. BLM and ANARCHISTS

        • Warren

          We probably should Report the Hanging of this Painting to the White Congressional Caucus! Ohhh Wait —–

          • The Redhawk

            Only if one enters that Cage with CAUTION and a bunch of bananas

  • Wingedgodd3ss

    I’m glad they took it down but why did it take 6 months? Maybe that guy wasn’t a rep yet?

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      A rep. yet, nope, I tend to think that his action was motivated/pushed foreword by the “Trump Effect/Affect” that is moving us all in the correct direction. I will bet that he wanted to do more then just take it down when he first saw it, but political pressure restrained him, until now. Now wait for more of this in other areas too, by other politicians. The ball has begun to roll.

      • Wingedgodd3ss

        It’s about time people start doing something.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          yup, and don’t forget, People “R” US

        • Retired

          2018 election will be the next chance to remove more garbage out of WDC.

          • Wingedgodd3ss

            Yeah but are Ryan, Rubio, McCain, Graham, Cornyn, McConnell up for election? I’m sure I missed a few rinos….

    • Retired

      You forget Obamy is still around and a new Congress was just sworn in.

      • Wingedgodd3ss

        Excellent point.

  • Shelly Shannon

    Yea! Im happy to see that someone has the scruples to prove their point. Our Hero and true patriot. Thank you congressman Hunter!

  • Paul Franklin

    Go you devil dang !!!! Back the Blue !!
