In a previous article I wrote about massive statues of bloody de-capitated Anglo-Saxon-like heads being erected in a Chinese-dominated suburb of Vancouver, BRITISH Columbia, in the same area as a massive 8,000-pound chrome statue of Russia's and China's communist tyrants Lenin and Mao. See CANADA COMMIE LENIN-MAO STATUE & LENIN-MAO MOCK CANADA OLYMPICS
There was no public uproar and almost non-existent news coverage when the bloody-heads were erected and a mere bit of mud-throwing at the Lenin head. But now I see, in reading this weekend's newspapers, that one of the statues was vandalized the other day. The boss of the arts-group that created the monstrosities (which they describe as "art pieces") is "screaming like a stuck-pig" (that's how Jackie Kennedy described Governor Connolly after he was hit by a bullet intended for JFK) and is demanding it be treated as "a serious crime" and the book thrown at the perpetrator.
It's indicitive of the Orwellian "doublethink" nation we've descended into that throwing a figurative egg at the hideous obscenities is deemed a crime instead of the real criminal act of putting pornographic political statements, touted as art, there in the first place.
I wonder if the vandalsim of the statue of the bloody-head was the act of a lone "prole" becoming conscious; or was it the opening salvo of an underground movement of "enemies of Big Brother" that Orwell's hero, Winston Smith, pinned all his hopes and dreams on.
In "1984" Orwell said that "If there is hope, it must lie in the proles.... if only they could become conscious of their own strength".
The throwing of the object that caused the hole in the head of the bloody statue is reminiscent, also, of the passage in "1984" where "the dark-haired girl suddenly picked up a Newspeak dictionary and flung it at the image of Goldstein on the telescreen".
In the news article below, describing the bloody-head vandalism, I've inserted photos at pertinent points:
Vandals put hole in severed head statue:
Art gallery boss calls for cops to act
Vancouver Sun, May 8, 2010
A public art piece in Richmond worth more than $1 million was vandalized this week, prompting the president of the Vancouver Biennale [gov't funded private art group that erected the statue] to call on police to treat it as a serious crime rather than an act of mischief, should the perpetrator be caught. "This was vicious and intended," said Barry Mowatt, president and founder of the Vancouver Biennale, which brings large public art installations from all over the world to Vancouver and, more recently, Richmond. "It should be treated as a crime."
The artwork in question, Cabeza Vainilla, Cabeza Cordoba, Cabeza Chiapas, by Mexican artist Javier Marin, features three massive stylized, severed heads in various positions. They are located under the Canada Line just north of the Lansdowne station.
The vandal punched a large, ragged hole in one of the heads, which are made of a tough polyresin.
"It's tragic because we can't figure out why," Mowatt said. The Marin piece [three statues of severed heads~jj] has not caused public controversy, unlike another Biennale installation in Richmond [the Lenin-Mao statue at which some protestors threw mud~jj].
Miss Mao, a huge stainless-steel bust of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin with a feminized Chairman Mao balanced on top of his head, was the subject of a months-long debate over the place of political art in the public sphere.
Mowatt said the Marin piece [severed-head statue~jj] is valued at $1.2 million. He is hoping the police will find surveillance video that captures the vandal in the act.

Another story in the news recently - indirectly related to the LENIN-MAO and BLOODY HEAD statues - is the selling of prime public land around the Olympic Oval to a Chinese developer to erect million-dollar condos marketed to rich immigrants from Communist China. This developer was previously behind the building of another highrise development - bought-up by elite immigrants - at coveted English Bay near Stanley Park. Symbolically, it overlooks a group of statues of Chinese people laughing hysterically (undoubtedly at stupid Anglo-Saxon host-nation).
Vancouver approves Olympic Oval condo plan
CBC News, Apr 27, 2010
Richmond - Mayor Malcolm Brodie has given the thumbs-up to a massive luxury condominium complex that is to be built around the Olympic speedskating oval. The 25 buildings of the River Green complex will cover 11 hectares on the south shore of the Fraser River, south of Vancouver. Brodie said the city has owned the land for decades, but it sat vacant, surrounded by industrial land and warehouses, until the Richmond Oval was built for the 2010 Winter Games.
The Oval is being converted into a multi-sport community centre, and the surrounding land will eventually be transformed into a massive residential neighbourhood by developer ASPAC. "It's going to be a very dynamic area," said Brodie Tuesday morning. "It's not going to be just like a stadium by itself. It's going to be right in the middle of an integrated community."
But the location — beside one of North America's largest rivers — has raised some concerns about potential flooding. Much of the city is already protected from the river by a series of dykes and special pumping stations. Architect James Cheng said to address the problems, the dyke holding back the Fraser River will be raised, the soft soil will be reinforced and the buildings will be designed much like a boat's hull to ensure that even if there is a flood, the buildings won't be damaged. He pointed to international examples of similar building scenarios to show that the project could be done. "Amsterdam is exactly the same thing," said Cheng. "They've been around a lot longer than we are. Recently, in Shanghai — which is also a river delta with accumulations of sand and stuff like that — they've been doing 100-storey buildings."
The Richmond Olympic Oval was where speedskating events were held during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Both Cheng and ASPAC were involved in the redevelopment of the Coal Harbour area in downtown Vancouver. The same style of luxury condo living will be used to market the Richmond development, said George Wong of Magnum Projects, the company that is marketing the River Green development. Wong said the units that will make up Phase 1 of River Green, which has already been approved by the city, will go on sale this summer, with construction expected to be completed by 2013. Wong predicted that even though the location doesn't share the same prestigious proximity to Stanley Park as the Coal Harbour project, the first phase would sell out in 60 days. He did admit, though, that the size of the project makes it hard to be certain. "Obviously, with anything of this size, there is anticipation and a bit of anxiety about how it's going to go," said Wong.

We in the Anglo-Saxon Western World are presently being invaded - albeit non-militarily - by an Oriental nation - an Asian Invasion. And unlike in ages past when other nations were being invaded, we are exerting no resistance against it. This pacifity in the face of attack is unprecedented in history. "The enemy within, by silent step, stole our freedom while we slept." ~ Jackie Jura

22.Doublethink (...The official ideology abounds with contradictions even when there is no reason for them.... It systematically undermines the solidarity of the family all the while appealing to the sentiment of family... It means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing them and to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies - all this is indispensably necessary....The prevailing mental condition is controlled insanity.)
23.The Proles (...If there was hope, it must lie in the proles because only there, in those swarming disregarded masses, 85 percent of the population of Oceania, could the force to destroy the Party ever be generated. The Party could not be overthrown from within. Its enemies, if it had any enemies, had no way of coming together or even of identifying one another. Even if the legendary Brotherhood existed, as just possibly it might, it was inconceivable that its members could ever assemble in larger numbers than twos and threes. Rebellion meant a look in the eyes, an inflection of the voice; at the most, an occasional whispered word. But the proles, if only they could somehow become conscious of their own strength, would have no need to conspire. They needed only to rise up and shake themselves like a horse shaking off flies. If they chose they could blow the Party to pieces tomorrow morning. Surely sooner or later it must occur to them to do it? And yet--!...)
32.Enemies of the Party (...All that they did was to keep alive in him the belief, or hope, that others besides himself were the enemies of the Party. Perhaps the rumours of vast underground conspiracies were true after all - perhaps the Brotherhood really existed! It was impossible, in spite of the endless arrests and confessions and executions, to be sure that the Brotherhood was not simply a myth. Some days he believed in it, some days not. For a second, two seconds, they had exchanged an equivocal glance, and that was the end of the story. But even that was a memorable event, in the locked loneliness in which one had to live....)

People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening bleating voice that came from the screen. The little sandy-haired woman had turned bright pink, and her mouth was opening and shutting like that of a landed fish. Even O'Brien's heavy face was flushed. He was sitting very straight in his chair, his powerful chest swelling and quivering as though he were standing up to the assault of a wave. The dark-haired girl behind Winston had begun crying out 'Swine! Swine! Swine!' and suddenly she picked up a heavy Newspeak dictionary and flung it at the screen. It struck Goldstein's nose and bounced off; the voice continued inexorably....)
