A Mother That Would Make Rosie O’Donnell Proud

March 19, 2010

We all remember everybody’s favourite radical lesbian extremist Rosie O’Donnell dressing “her” four-year-old child, Vivienne up as some kind of child soldier/terrorist/guerrilla fighter in order to promote her own idiotic anti-war beliefs, right? I mean, that’s what children are for these days… political pawns and tools, amiright?

Don’t remember? Lemme refresh your memory:

Vivienne - Rosie's little tool

Yeah yeah, “But she meant THIS” or “IT was taken out of CONTEXT OMGZ”. I don’t buy it. However, all of that mess seems like small potatoes when you take a gander at Danish-Norwegian artist Nina Maria Kleivan and what she’s done to HER baby:

While most mothers dress their baby daughters in frilly dresses, a Danish-Norwegian artist dressed hers

Artist Nina Maria Kleivan dressed her daughter as Baby Hitler as part of her photo essay on evil doers.

up as Baby Hitler.

Nina Maria Kleivan created a photo essay on evil doers, dolling her daughter up as despicable despots ranging from Adolf Hitler to Benito Mussolini.

“We all have evil within us. Even small children are evil towards each other,” Kleivan told the Haaretz newspaper in Israel.

“Even my daughter could end up ruling Denmark with an iron fist,” said Kleivan, whose daughter, Faustina, is now 11 years old.

The controversial photo-series, titled “Potency,” has been exhibited in Denmark, Sweden, Italy and Germany.

Kleivan said the idea came to her over a decade ago while she was recovering from a tough pregnancy that left her in a wheelchair for four months.

Bored and unable to get to her studio, Kleivan began sewing little costumes of the most evil historical figures of the 20th century and photographing Faustina in them.

In the photo series, baby Faustina also portrays Joseph Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Ayatollah Khomeini, Chairman Mao Zedong, Idi Amin, Augusto Pinochet and Slobodan Milosevic.

“You need to be conscious that your actions have consequences that impact on your fellow human beings,” said Kleivan – whose father, a member of the Norwegian resistance in World War II, was held in a German prison camp.

“The people I let my daughter portray didn’t give a damn about the human cost, the casualties, their thoughts caused,” she said.

“Even though comical, you’re not supposed to only laugh at these pictures; you need to contemplate them, ponder where this evil comes from.”

Is it too late for her to include Barack Hussein Obama in this project? Sure, the kid’s eleven now, but even still.
