Assassination chic artist of the day

If you’re a left-wing artist looking for attention, you can never go wrong with assassination chic. The latest entrant is one Wafaa Bilal. He’s got issues, as they say:

An artist’s video game that is being exhibited at a free-speech exhibit in Chicago challenges players to kill the president.

The video game is part of a “confrontational art” exhibit by Chicago-based artist Wafaa Bilal.

In the 3-D game, “The Night of Bush Capturing; A Virtual Jihadi,” players are sent on a mission to kill President George W. Bush.

Bilal, 42, said his art is a personal attempt to deal with the deaths of citizens in the country of his birth. The artist said his brother died in Iraq in 2004 from a U.S bomb.

The game is part of the Freedom of Speech exhibition at FLATFILE Galleries. It runs until Aug. 22.

The game was scheduled for exhibition in March at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y., but school administrators shut it down after less than a day, according to a TimeOutChicago blog post.

“The game itself is not an act of terrorism,” said one protester. “But it simply promotes it.”

FYI: Bilal was inspired by al Qaeda’s “Night of Bush capturing” jihadi propaganda video.

His website is “The Virtual Jihadi.”

And Obama and his grievance-mongering supporters have the nerve to whine about that New Yorker cartoon…
