No peace for yankee hipster in Denmark

Denmark – Yankee Hipster Shepard Fairey, well known for the Obama ‘Hope’ poster design, was beaten to a bloody pulp by two men for being a imperialistic bastard, and saw his mural named ‘Peace Dove’ being defecated with the text “No Peace! Go home Yankee Hipster.”

The designer of the Obama ‘Hope’ poster decided to imperialize The Kingdom of Denmark, which didn’t sit well with at least two Danish citizens who weren’t looking forward to the Obamaisation of their country, who promptly beat him up in front of the Kodboderne 18 nightclub last Saturday.

Anti-American sentiments came to a head as the Danish defenders shouted things about the “Obama Illuminati” to Fairey and his colleague Romeo Trinidad. The LA-based artist believes the attack was sparked by a misunderstanding over his mural commemorating the demolition of the legendary “Ungdomshuset” (youth house) at Jagtvej 69. The building, a long-term base for Copenhagen’s left-wing community, was controversially demolished in 2007.

Left-wing Anarchists where pretty pissed off about this mural though, because they understand very well what America means when they talk about peace: Armed oppression and a total police state, and Judeochristian Capitalistic American values that only serves to widen the gap between ‘haves’ and ‘havenots.’ And as Ben Franklin once said: “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” making the Anarchists automatically more American than the Yankee artist.
