Sabo: The Pro-Trump Street Artist

"Republicans Are The New Punk"

From The Guardian:
The guerrilla art movement is usually associated with leftwing politics. Banksy targets capitalism, consumerism and inequality. 
Blek le Rat, the father of stencil graffiti, depicts oppression and resistance. 
Shepard Fairey gilded Barack Obama’s rise with the iconic “Hope” poster and now highlights the scapegoating of Muslims and the corporatisation of US politics. 
In the Trump era, the right, however, has its own guerrilla artist: 
Sabo, a former US marine who works from an apartment-cum-studio in Los Angeles beneath a sign that says “Fuck Tibet”. Another says “Fuck peace”. 
Under cover of darkness, he peppers public spaces in LA with images and slogans targeting liberals, whom he associates with “pot-smoking lazy bums” hostile to western values. He puts the same images and slogans on posters, T-shirts and pins which he sells from his website and at Republican party gatherings across the US. 
“I think leftism is a mental disorder,” Sabo, 49, said in an interview at his home. “I truly believe I’m fighting the good fight.”

I would like it if it said, "Fuck TIbet, Fuck Peace." That would be great.
