Rockwell’s ‘Freedom of Speech,’ updated


I Tweeted this during the Q&A of an appearance by John Kasich at the SC Chamber of Commerce today:

Nobody retweeted it, so I guess no one was struck by the similarity the way I was. (It’s not any particular detail about the photos. They just felt alike, to me. I saw it, felt it, got my phone up, zoomed in quickly and shot it, less than a second before she sat down.)

But I go ahead and share it here anyway…

    Not quite. In the Rockwell painting everyone is paying attention to the speaker; in your picture only 3 people appear to be paying her any attention.

    Regarding “‘Freedom of Speech,’ updated”, we are reminded:

    Our freedoms of speech apply equally to Pope Francis, a non-U.S. citizen, who next week plans to meet illegal immigrants on our Mexican border to promote open borders, and to U.S. citizens who cherish their right to criticize the Pope for such meddling, as well as those depicting the Prophet Mohammad for his coerced, antithetical, and unmodernized dictates.
