Artist's Statement
Richard Loyal French

Back in WWII, images were used extensively against our enemies, in the media, even cartoons (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Donald Duck and others joined in on the war against the "Evil Axis"), and posters were everywhere warning against "trusting everyone" and talking to much giving the enemy information that would give them the advantage.

Propaganda we call it now... a tool that works, that most people today consider a "bad thing".

I don't.

My images I intend to be "in your face", "hard to ignore", Blunt honesty - much like the war effort of WWII.

But then... we had a media that loved America, as did our President then... Not now. 
And we had Americans who were strong willed, and used to hardships and death, and surviving in odds that would kill you otherwise.

Most people today... don't know hardship. They don't know anything beyond that "horrible things happen somewhere else" as you take-selfies and watch the Kardashians.

YOU DON'T WANT to See the blood, the gore, and the REALITY of the inhumanity that these animals are REALLY DOING!

You can, and do, turn the page of the paper and refuse to look at the pictures there... Turn off Fox News, because they report the truth that you don't want to acknowledge.  Or... as some have done in my case, Report my images to Facebook so that they can shut me down, and and stop my images from being circulated.  And remove my posts altogether.

Yes... to some.  My images are way over the top. Because they are not used to having their "Perfect world"... or their "Perfect President Messiah" come crumbling down to Reality.

Or... worse... Administrators of groups who claim to be against Obama, who claim to be against Islam, afraid that the "Great Oppressors" and "Overseers" of Facebook and/or the "Goose-Step NSA" will come to Spank them!

And so the Administrators removes anything that really Bites hard the Reality of how barbaric these Animals are... and follows exactly what the Obama administration wants: Not to Show how Obama is allowing these Atrocities to grow, and grow, and grow, as if they were just in someone's imagination and nothing more... as he Golfs on his never-ending Vacation. "Nothing to see here... ISIS is not Islam". 
They Conform to the Blindness that Obama desires.

After all your just a Dog with no bite... and Obama eats Dogs!

Those type of Administrators are the dogs who bark from "Closed Groups" who hide while they bark that they want to really make a difference... but have no teeth to bite anyone... And are really useless.

It's a dog eat dog world... and I do bite. 
And I bite Hard! 

Like it.. or get the fuck out of my way!

I hope that the Greatest Generation (those that fought in WWII) would have been proud of the images I do. Because I am proud of them, what they fought for... How valiant, brave and daring AMERICANS they were.... and the sacrifices that they made FOR America and our Freedoms that we enjoy today.

My images fight THEIR Good Fight, as well as our own today.... With all the passion and truth that they had back then.

The Art of winning war has never changed... only the American People have grown weak, spineless, self-serving and cowardly... afraid to stand up and be a strong unstoppable American Force.

My Images are Intended to be a mirror of the times and its harsh reality.

Perhaps you don't like, nor can stomach, the images I post because, it really is a mirror... a mirror that shows that YOU are not of the mettle of Americans that our fathers and grand-fathers were who Won World War II.  A mirror that shows how gutless that you really are.

I intend to be that mirror that "they" will have to look into.
