Department of Barely-Sub Text

So they're doing statue of MLK, and apparently it's disturbing the US Commission of Fine Arts:

A powerful federal arts commission is urging that the sculpture of Martin Luther King Jr. proposed for a memorial on the Tidal Basin be reworked because it is too "confrontational" and reminiscent of political art in totalitarian states.

This is from the commission that approved a Riefenstahlian WW2 memorial.
