Israel: Banksy’s “wall” art project shows he’s “a dunce”

Gavin McInnesArchive

I'm here in Israel with a bunch of other Rebel's on our week-long fact-finding mission. Did you know that artist Banksy has an exhibit in Jerusalem right now, criticizing the country's security wall? He's an idiot because the wall saves lives, and Trump needs to build one just like it.

I don’t blame you one bit, art has become nothing but a dog whistle for lefty initiatives.

John Rob; I’m taking your word on it because I don’t know a damn thing about art.

Ok, everybody who comes to the rebel for an in depth critique of artwork raise your hand.
Yea, didn’t think so..

Banksy was interesting before he got all political and special, anyone who knows about art knows that when it becomes political it becomes cliché dogma. I was interested in the wall work when he first tagged it, but was sorely disappointed when I finally saw some of it, which in my mind, lost his darting edge.
He’s been tagging that wall for years now, I’m beginning to think it’s the unlimited medium that has him so ‘inspired’ and not some sense of righteousness.
After all, we all know that artists will create any excuse to perform.

I don’t blame Gavin for passing on Banksy, due to the fact that Banksy has become passé.

If it keeps the murdering Islamist extremists out I am for this wall.
Canada should learn from this!

The followers of Sharia law are not our friends!

And without walls, Rome wouldn’t exist.

M.K. said, “Where am I hating Peter?”

“Just wall propaganda. People pay to support this site?”

That must be an, “I love you” statement.

M.K. said, " Nobody has addressed my valid statement that this article has NOTHING to do with Banksy. "

The title does relate to the article because it is comparing Banksy’ exhibit in Jerusalem to the country’s security wall, so Gavin went out to the country’s security wall to see for himself, and reported on it.

M.K. said, " I’m exposing poor journalism."

That is your opinion. You do understand, don’t you, that your opinion is just one in many and no more valid that anyone else’s?

The rest of the rebel fans view all of Gavin’s reports/videos in context. Context is good.

M.K said, “Have fun in your echo chamber.”

Okay. Bye.

I’m not triggered, I’m pointing out basic journalism skills, ie. Make the content of your reporting match the title of your reporting.

And calling me a delicate flower isn’t name-calling? Nobody has addressed my valid statement that this article has NOTHING to do with Banksy. The guy doesn’t even GO to the hotel to report about it, as the title of his report suggests. He uses it as fodder to draw more viewership.

Where am I hating Peter? Or are you assuming that because you don’t agree with me I am automatically hating? Because that seems to be the alt-right default— to close your ears when a valid point is raised. I’m not hating on anyone. I’m exposing poor journalism.

You also assume I am a fan of Hillary. Another assumption that seems to be your default. You guys are good at assumptions.

Have fun in your echo chamber.

People like Matthew K will always view those opinions and views he disagrees with, with hate. He is not capable of tolerating other’s opinions if they differ from his opinion. That is the self-proclaiming tolerant left for you.

Matthew does not like The Rebel because he does not like the opinions of the people here, so he insults The Rebel and its’ staff. Next will be the people that support the website … oh, the hater has already done that … so then next is to start with the name calling, racist, Islamophobe, etc., etc, etc.

That is all that people like Matthew have … is hate and bile.

“it doesn’t take much to “trigger” those delicate little flowers these days, eh?”

So very true.

My God, it doesn’t take much to “trigger” those delicate little flowers these days, eh?
News flash; Thursday is the four-month anniversary of Hilary’s defeat. RUN TO YOUR SAFE SPACE!

M.K. is going to get a nice pay check from his union friends, how lowlife is it to work for union as a puppy slave.

Already know more about that wall than ever before, thanks TheRebel, this will be fun to know more about Israel.

Matt , even you are listening to the beautiful choir music of the REBEL , and your not even in the choir — gotchew moment , your hooked now , in a year or so you will be a baptized member of the REBEL , Hal a lu ja !!!

The title of the article is “Banksy’s ‘Wall’ Art Project….” yet the only reporting on the actual art project is a screenshot of a Guardian article. Seriously. Call it “Why the Wall is Necessary,” because THAT’S what this “story” is about. This “reporter” only mentions Bansky so he can call him a Dunce (and probably because this project has received a lot of attention lately, and The Rebel is hoping to boost it’s viewership numbers). Again, some high quality reporting here. Keep preaching to the choir, Rebel.

Welcome matt , yes I also agree with you about the high quality of the news service the WORLD WIDE REBEL NEWS ORGANIZATION provides , it’s refreshingly simple and straight to the point , without all that politically correct virtue signaling that the old maid LUGENPRESSE provides

We enjoy fresh meat offerings , we just hope your not leftover hamburger

Good one GAVIN !!!

Not enough fake “nuance” for you, Matthew?
commented 2017-03-08 08:21:23 -0500
Matthew, you are correct, it is high quality reporting. Makes a great change from the CBC doesn’t it. You are also correct that it is unbelievable we are paying for the CBC crap.

Anyway, welcome to The Rebel with your recognition of its much higher quality to the MSM.

How much do you pay to support he Communist Broadcasting Corporation ?
commented 2017-03-08 07:51:57 -0500
Wow, that’s some quality reporting right there. I thought it was going to be an educated critique of Banksy’s hotel. Nope. Just wall propaganda. People pay to support this site?
