Multiple life-sized naked statues of Donald Trump appeared in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cleveland on Thursday. “The Emperor has no Balls,” is the name of the sculpture, an idea of a self-professed anarchist collective nicknamed “Indecline.”
Anarchism, as a social and political movement, wants to abolish the state and everything that has been imposed by society. Instead, it promotes the establishment of aware self-ruling communities that don’t need of class systems to function.
That is why anarchist groups, like Indecline, have a total disregard for social rules that prohibit nudity or vandalism, for example.
The Donald Trump statue in New York got the attention of the citizens quickly. The Union Square became a popular site where people gathered to take photographs with “naked Trump” before it was removed by the Parks Department.
“NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small,” joked Sam Biederman of the NYC Parks Department.
The Trump statue seeks to strip the candidate off his persona and show a real man
“The Emperor has no Balls”, indeed, has a very explicit tiny manhood. The art piece is the creation of an artist from Cleveland. It is a stern Trump with an unfriendly face, spreading discipline with his hands folded over a round belly.
The clay and silicon sculpture is the new satirical protest of the group Indecline, which has spoken out against the controversial man several times in the past. This time, Indecline members wanted to showcase the aspirant in the most humiliating way they could imagine: without the expensive suits and sheer confidence to expose the weak, mortal being that lies beneath.
The collective has hopes that the former reality TV star never reaches “the most powerful political and military position in the world.”
What else has Indecline done?
Their messages are inside artistic expressions. Spray paint, masks, and short films are the main features of their messages
Other projects of the collective include replacing the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the names of African-Americans killed by police; and the “longest graffiti in the world,” or so they say, with the words “This Land Was Our Land” across an abandoned highway in the Mojave Desert.
Recently they made a video called “Rape Trump” to criticize the candidate’s message of “rapist” illegally pouring from Mexico to the United States. Indecline recorded several people vandalizing a wall that already exists between the two nations in Tijuana.
Apparently, Indecline has not made a dent in the Trump Tower. Nor the video nor the statue generated any response from the Republican’s campaign team.
The Donald Trump statue is karma on the works
Indecline expects to hear laughs over a naked man, wrinkled, fat and with a small genitalia. The stunted member to which the sculpture means to draw particular attention might be its weakest point.
Bullying one person’s looks is, ironically, something Trump has done to feed the controversy. Trump has insulted people because of their looks, weight, ethnicity, and a very long etc.
He mocked a Miss Universe contestants for “overweight.” Trump called Venezuelan model Alicia Machado “Miss Piggy” a month after she won Miss Universe pageant in 1996, and recently called Rosie O’Donell “my niece, fat little Rosie;” and even made fun of Chris Christie’s weight during a Trump rally.
