PM is spitting mad, there is nothing like the combination of ignorance and arrogance to make PM’s being shake it like it was a Polaroid picture of fury being hung out to dry. The Film and Publication Board of South Africa has given The Spear painting by Brett Murray, a representation of President Jacob Zuma with his pants down, a “16N” rating. This action by the FPB is a regatta of ignorance sailing on a storm of arrogance.The Film and Publications Board implied it had an obligation to suppress political criticism. Fuck you. You have just destroyed your credibility.You have no knowledge of South African Art History, yet you think that you have a right, let alone a jurisdiction, to give an artwork a “16N” rating. Fuck you. This is a sad day for South African arts and artists, and if you for one minute think, that the arts community will respect your “right” to “rate” an artwork, fuck you, and by the way FPB – fuck you.
