California city scrubs BLM mural after Trump supporter requests for MAGA slogan

Redwood City has removed a BLM mural last week after receiving a request to paint a Trump 2020 statement on the same street. City’s resident Dan Pease had painted the BLM mural after receiving permission from city officials as part of a Fourth of July public art celebration. Another resident Maria Rutenburg last week asked permission to paint a MAGA 2020 on the street if it was now a public forum.

This is brilliant. This story clearly demonstrates why a city should never permit people to paint political messages on public streets. The moment you allow one person to write a political message on the street you must allow all other people to write political messages on the street.
