Fascists Attack Andres Serrano Photos in Swedish Gallery

So sad that this is the state of public discourse. From the IHT:
A grainy video of four masked vandals running through an art gallery in Sweden, smashing sexually explicit photographs with crowbars and axes to the strain of thundering death-metal music, was posted on YouTube last week.

This was no joke or acting stunt. It was what actually happened on a quiet Friday afternoon in Lund, a small university town in southern Sweden where "The History of Sex," an exhibition of photographs by the New York artist Andres Serrano, had opened two weeks earlier.

I was debating whether or not to post a link to the video of the attack. I mean, why give these fascist fucks any extra exposure, right? But, I think it would be a mistake to hide from this video. It is important to expose this type of extremism for the bullshit it is.
