DONOHUE ON “CROSSFIRE”

Catalyst November Issue 1999

9-28-99

Following a video clip of Hillary Clinton explaining why she is against defunding the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Donohue commented:

“…it’s appropriate that we are talking about elephant dung, because this lady certainly stepped in it when she made that remark.”

 

DONOHUE ON THE “TODAY SHOW”

“Our Blessed Mother is very important to Catholics.  It’s more important, I think, to Catholics than maybe Martin Luther King might even be to the African-American community.  And when you throw elephant dung and have pictures of vaginas and anuses surrounding her in this- this kind of invidious fashion, my answer is go show your filth down the street.  Find a fat cat bigot.   There are alot of fat cat bigots who don’t like Catholics in this country; let them sponsor it.  But if the government cannot sponsor my religion, and it shouldn’t, it shouldn’t be in the business of allowing people to bash my religion.  What this is is pure, unadulterated hate speech.  And the government should not be involved in hate speech against my religion or anybody else’s.”

 

DONOHUE ON NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO

“You want to shock people? Why don’t you take your own mother and wipe crap over her? But don’t you dare take our spiritual mother, the spiritual mother of people worldwide and millions of people in the New York City area, and desecrate her.”

 

DONOHUE AT RALLY AGAINST THE MUSEUM

“People have told me that there are multiple interpretations to this. Only people who have been drunk on the ideas of modern art would believe this. If somebody puts a swastika on a synagogue, there’s only one answer—and everyone knows what it is. When you throw elephant dung with pornographic pictures on Our Blessed Mother, there’s only one meaning.”

“People are saying that Africans and African-Americans approve of putting dung on sacred pictures. That’s a racist statement. I have worked in the African-American community. I’ve taught in Spanish Harlem. I don’t know one African-American family that when it comes to celebrating Kwanza, they send a pile of excrement to their friends.”

“Now that art has been reduced to dung and puke, there is no better time to cut public funding of the arts.”
