Video: Graf artist Saber on the flag video that earned him rightwing death threats


Graffiti artist Saber on his flag piece that sent the right into conniptions. An epileptic who can't get health insurance because of his pre-existing condition, he made the graffiti piece of layered graffiti over a flag image for Organizing for America’s Health Care Video Challenge, where it was a finalist. He drew the ire of rightwing media outlets like Fox News and NewsMax and death threats from online commenters. To that, he says, bring it on: "I'm happy to be America's Enemy No. 1. Please. By all means. It makes my art more valuable."

Not safe for work (language).

Their umbrage is incredible. He can can suffer the consequence of denial of health care coverage but how very dare he use the flag.
