Why is the National Endowment for the Arts funding a Che Guevara exhibit?

Oct. 28, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging President Donald Trump to fire National Endowment for the Arts Chair Mary Anne Carter for allowing a Che Guevera exhibit to be funded with U.S. taxpayer monies:

“Senators Marco Rubio  and Sen. Rick Scott recently wrote a letter to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) expressing their concern about a grant to a Texas art museum. Their concern stemmed from the fact that the museum created an exhibit featuring images of Che Guevara without providing appropriate context. Americans for Limited Government stands with Sens. Rubio and Scott.

“President Donald Trump should strongly consider replacing Mary Anne Carter as the head of the NEA as it clearly continues to promote the cultural destruction of American values. There is no excuse for a murderous communist thug like Che Guevara who hated America and human rights to be legitimized using U.S. taxpayer dollars. This is exactly the kind of swamp draining that the American people expect from the Trump administration and the fact that the NEA still does not get it is shocking.”
