University of Oklahoma’s stolen art flyover creates stir

Sept. 5, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement upon the completion of a two hour tail gate flyover by a plane towing a banner urging Oklahoma University President David Boren to “#return the stolen art”.

“Americans for Limited Government is committed to protecting private property, and there can be no more egregious example in the 20th century of government confiscation than Hitler’s theft of property owned by Jewish people as they were ordered to death camps.

“OU President David Boren should act immediately to return the artwork in his University’s possession that was stolen by the Nazi’s from a Jewish family. While OU obtained the art through a legal donation, it is unconscionable that they are spending tens of thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees to keep it from its rightful owner.

“Today’s flyover is part of Americans for Limited Government’s on-going effort to persuade Mr. Boren to set a good example for his students and #returnthestolenart immediately.”
