This morning, our DCG published a post on an art gallery in Portland, Oregon, One Grand Gallery, displaying an image in its window of President Trump being decapitated and the words “Fuck Trump”.
Jordan Chan-Mendez is the founder and co-owner of One Grand Gallery, located at 1000 E. Burnside St., Portland, OR 97214 (Google Map here).
Since Portland is a Leftist city, Chan-Mendez probably thought he would have the enthusiastic support of Portlanders.
Even Portland has a limit.
Fox 12 Oregon reports that the art gallery has scraped the “behead Trump” image off its window after “continuous threats” and a request from the gallery’s landlord.
The man who identified himself as One Grand Gallery’s founder, refused to give his name and hid his face from the FOX 12 camera crew. The man also declined to explain why the gallery put the image up in a window that faces a public street and sidewalk.
Fox 12 reporter Tyler Dumont: “But, I mean, you felt strong enough to put this out here?”
Gallery Founder: “Yeah, but people that are responding, are responding with such anger and violence. People want the gallery to go up in flames with my family.”
The gallery isn’t the only business to receive threats. A worker at an unaffiliated automotive shop, Total Performance Converters, located one floor above the art gallery said the phone has been ringing off the hook all morning, after pictures of the “behead Trump” image went viral on social media. Shop owner Dane Johnson said he’s received phone calls from “all over the United States”:
“It’s been a crazy, crazy morning. I’ve had threats, I’ve had rocks thrown through the window. I’ve had threats that we’re never going to do business with you again. I’ve also had threats on my life, you know, ‘we’re going to come and kill you’.”
Although the “behead Trump” image has been scraped off the gallery’s window, the gallery still displays other hate-Trump “art work,” such as these two:
