    'I think leftism is a disorder': is this artist the rightwing Banksy?
    Street artist Sabo shot to fame during the 2016 US election with his politically incorrect approach. Now he’s plastering LA with controversial works

    https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2017/jun/21/rightwing-street-artist-sabo-donald-trump-la

    In the Trump era, the right, however, has its own guerrilla artist: Sabo, a former US marine who works from an apartment-cum-studio in Los Angeles

    Under cover of darkness, he peppers public spaces in LA with images and slogans targeting liberals, whom he associates with “pot-smoking lazy bums” hostile to western values. He puts the same images and slogans on posters, T-shirts and pins which he sells from his website and at Republican party gatherings across the US.

    I've seen this guy on Tucker Carlson's show. He is the real deal. And he is pretty funny. A social warrior who hasn't disengaged his brain.

    He also looks like he can take care of himself if confronted on the street by a pack of snowflakes... :)

    Unless dishonorably discharged, is there really an ex-marine? :)

    There's no such thing. Once a Marine, always a Marine.
    You can tell a Marine....




    But you can't tell 'em much.

    Finally! Art that I both understand and can identify as something). Fruit, human, sky, etc.

    I've been scolded by friends for this. There is NO such thing as an ex-Marine. They are "former" Marines, if anything. :supergrin:
