Follow the Leader, NEAP

The fact that people will follow those they know are lying to them is astounding, but when you have no internal compass. Still, one of the architects of getting the NEA to turn artists into propagandists has not been fired but reassigned:

"On August tenth, the National Endowment for the Arts participated in a call with arts organizations to inform them of the president's call to national service. The White House office of public engagement also participated in the call, which provided information on how the Corporation for National and Community Service can assist groups interested in sponsoring service projects or having their members volunteer on other projects. This call was not a means to promote any legislative agenda and any suggestions to that end are simply false. The NEA regularly does outreach to various organizations to inform of the work we are doing and the resources available to them." [Read]

Let us guess: you are okay with his lying because they are pretty little lies that sound good and show he cares? Still, we have to with the fact you accept his lies because you are pathetic.

Nice explanation for:

"Take photos. Take video. Post it on your blogs. Get the word out. Like I said, this is a community that knows how to make a stink. Do it. Do it within your town. Do it nationally. Call on other producers, marketers, publicists, art -- you know -- artists, people from within our community and get them engaged."

Yes, it is time for a name change: NEAP, National Endowment for Artists Propagandizing
