2. However

In the original Rockwell, the men are federal agents actually protecting the little girl going to school.
So, is the intent to turn that upside down and picture (current) federal officers as abrogating her human
rights?

3. that's how i read it - part of the overall message i think

the might of our federal agencies, now turned against the weak and downtrodden whose cause they once helped advance

6. That painting by Rockwell always blew me away

Rockwell's original is STILL relevant, of course-- now it's joined by another that continues with the same theme.

How abominably these babies are being treated.

7. The remake misses completely the point of the original and gets it backward.


In the remake, the government is attacking the girl to punish the parents.

In the original, the government is enforcing the girls right as the parents wanted.

8. But as an earlier poster noted

This is the "Trump Era" version. Everything he has done has been "backwards" (the reverse).
