Tax dollars support sickness masquerading as art at Sundance Film Festival

AFA reports that tax dollars were used to support the Sundance Film Festival which recently featured a "tasteful film about men fornicating with horses."

The National Endowment for the Arts gave between $100,000 and $249,000 to help underwrite the festival, and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) gave between $50,000 and $99,999.

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) gets millions of dollars to support "art." A few years ago the NEA helped fund a crucifix submerged in urine and named "Pis- Christ." NEA has sponsored similar "art" projects with tax dollars.

PBS gets tax funding from The Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Every other non-profit broadcasting station must raise their own funds, but CPB and PBS are funded with hundreds of millions of tax dollars. PBS is probably the most liberal network in America. Hollywood has hundreds of millions of dollars to underwrite the cost of the Sundance Film Festival, but they would rather use your tax dollars than their own money. Together, these two organizations provided upwards of $350,000 of tax money to the film festival.
