Free Expression? Sure . . . Uh, Never Mind . . .

An artist erected a near-naked statue of Hillary Clinton in downtown Manhattan this morning and that quickly triggered a heated fight between defenders of the piece of art and women trying to tear it down. The women seemed to be winning. In one of America's most politically liberal cities, this was not surprising.
The caricature of Hillary shows her with hoofed feet and a Wall Street banker resting his head on her bare breasts. Not very long ago a grotesque statue of a pot-bellied, naked Donald Trump was mostly allowed to remain standing and was even heralded as appropriate "protest art." 
Seems "free expression" is fine, just so long as it doesn't offend the left.
