This is in one sense a bit like saying he just wishes people wouldn't let black people and Jews fully participate in society—which is to say, it's baldly retrogressive, and blatantly bigoted—but he doesn't even advance an argument for his opinion; it's apparently the result of some dyspeptic musings while attending a particular exhibit he didn't enjoy.
