A school in the San Diego area, the MAAC Community Charter School in Chula Vista, actually has a mural of President Donald Trump’s head pierced by a spear.
Isn’t it a federal offense to threaten the president of the United States?
One has to wonder how this same mural would have been perceived if the head on the spear had been Barack Obama’s.
Anyhow, the story is that KUSI first broke the story of the mural, and it was then covered up by school officials. But the station went back out to check on the status of the image, and apparently — it’s not been completely removed, but only covered by a tarp.
From KUSI News:
On Thursday May 3, KUSI’s Dan Plante went back to MAAC Community Charter School in Chula Vista to follow up on violent mural. Since KUSI broke this story, the mural has been covered up, but we are not sure if it is temporary or permanent. Dan Plante spoke to people in the area and reached out to the school for comment. A local woman even commented on our Facebook post thanking KUSI News for “free advertising.” After we reached out to her via Facebook messenger, she declined to comment on camera about her part in making the violent mural. …
Parents are voicing concerns about an overtly political message on a wall of the MAAC Charter School in Chula Vista on Third Avenue.
KUSI News learned about the mural after a viewer sent a picture, offended by the depiction. It depicts an Aztec warrior, spearing President Donald Trump’s decapitated, bloody head.
Many residents in the area considered it graphic and inappropriate, considering it was on the wall of a school.
KUSI started looking into the mural Tuesday but received no comment from the school. By Wednesday, the school sent a statement and had already covered up the mural.
MAAC Charter, chartered by Sweetwater Union High School District, touts itself as a community school that offers students a unique curriculum in which students learn traditional subjects in relation to real-world issues. Director Tommy Ramirez explained this mural was apart of Battlegroundz, an annual event which highlights the urban art form of street murals to raise money to provide scholarships for seniors.
“We understand that there was a mural painted at the event this past weekend that does not align with our school’s philosophy of non-violence. We have been in communication with the artist who has agreed to modify the artwork to better align with the school’s philosophy,” Ramirez said.
Currently, the mural is covered by a black tarp.
