Controversial Painter Depicts Obama With Burning Constitution (http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/03/20/controversial-painter-depicts-obama-with-burning-constitution/)

Provo, Utah (CBSDC) – Jon McNaughton, a controversial artist who often mixes religion and politics in his work, has released a new painting.

In “One Nation Under Socialism,” President Obama holds the U.S. Constitution as it burns.

While McNaughton previously depicted Obama stepping on the nation’s founding document, (http://lasvegas.cbslocal.com/2012/02/03/controversial-artist-depicts-obama-trampling-the-constitution/) “One Nation Under Socialism” glowers directly as if challenging the viewer. His right hand is holding the Constitution and his left hand is pointing to the flames.

McNaughton tells CBSDC that the hands “represents his recognition of what is happening (to the Constitution) as it goes up.”

“There are numerous symbols and subtleties in this painting, and I’m not ready to reveal all of them,” McNaughton said. >>>

“People need to start talking, and the conversation is about to get heated,” he said.

As with his other works, McNaughton released a video on YouTube detailing “One Nation Under Socialism.”

In the voice over, McNaughton says, “This is my pledge. I pledge allegiance to the United States of America and not to an ideology that could never stand: one nation — under socialism — divisive with no liberty or justice for anyone.”

Check out the comments. This is CBS. :cool:

The video on YouTube referred to in above article.

"I pledge allegiance to the United States of America,
And not to an ideology, which can never stand,
One nation under socialism, divisive,
With no liberty or justice for anyone."

This November, you will make a choice. Will you choose One Nation Under Socialism?

Some may already be familiar with the image featured above. For those who aren’t, it is painting titled “The Forgotten Man” which features President Obama trampling on the Constitution while an astonished James Madison pleads with him to stop. To the side, a man sits on a park bench in the throes of depression while 43 presidents look on. The painting, which uses discarded dollar bills and scraps of paper with individual constitutional amendments scrawled onto them.

The Blaze first reported on artist Jon McNaughton’s controversial rendition back in 2010 when the artwork was released. Now, however, McNauughton’s Forgotten Man has resurfaced and is making its rounds across the internet again after appearing on Rachel Maddow’s blog on Thursday.

In a video that accompanied The Forgotten Man’s release, the politically charged McNaughton revealed, “For a long time I didn’t know if I wanted to paint this picture, because I worried it might be too controversial.”

He explained that the man on the park bench “represents every man, woman, and child who is an American“ and who ”hopes to find the American dream of happiness and prosperity.” The artist added, “But now because of unconstitutional acts imposed on the American people by our government we stand on the precipice of disasters.”

Controversial? So ... the truth is controversial to the "elite" class?

A search of McNaughton’s postings on Facebook reveal a number of paintings with strong political and religious themes including another provocative work released in October 2011 titled “Wake Up America.” The image features Obama smiling on the stump while shackled Americans gather around him.

Considering NDAA (http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=28441) (signed on New Year's Eve 2011) and Obama's new Executive Order (http://www.activistpost.com/2012/03/new-obama-executive-order-seizes-us.html), this painting seems pretty accurate.

Because he has a flaming rage against Capitalism & white people that burns within.

I thought the portrait looked more like Rahm Emanuel than Barack Obama.

Because Geraldine left him. :friendly_wink:

That said, libs make a movie about a sitting president(Bush) being assassinated and all is well. Non-lib paints a picture of Obama holding a burning Constitution and the wailing and gnashing of teeth become so loud that it drowns out the TV.

In another painting, he has The Forgotten Man cutting his chains.

Close up from the image Arroyo posted above ...

Much of McNaughton’s work is political in nature. Previously, he released “One Nation Under God,” a painting depicting Jesus holding the Constitution and judging several archetypes including a liberal journalist, a smug college professor, and a man McNaughton calls “Mr. Hollywood.”

He is good. I tend to think he is heavy handed but does rely on symbolism and metaphor to get his point across.

The interesting thing about that painting is one of the only two obvious black people, besides the President, is looking at The Forgotten Man cutting his chains.

I think that's the real obama. the MSM always show the big smile and BS. This painter seems to be able to see beyond that facade and capture the real person, who is an evil S.O.B. in my opinion.

So this is the liberal depiction of "One Nation Under God ... if the founding fathers and patriotic heroes of the past could speak to us today"?

Wow. Just wow.

Yep, funny how they detest hateful rhetoric, against their own filthy A-holes, but when a Conservative is targeted, "nothing to see here, move along."

It's called "One Nation, Under Cthulhu", and as parodies go, it's not bad. It's also a pretty good depiction of what a second Obama term will look like.

Controversial Painter Depicts Obama With Burning Constitution (http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/03/20/controversial-painter-depicts-obama-with-burning-constitution/)


“There are numerous symbols and subtleties in this painting, and I’m not ready to reveal all of them,” McNaughton said. >>>

lol oh wow it's just so subtle, yet.....so full of meaning. The way the painter dances with subtly, playing with the viewers expectations (whoa, it's on fire! that's not right), playing with the form of the painting, playing with our very emotions touches on on true hidden meaning of this work.

I....I'm not entirely sure if I "get it", what with all the subtle symbols, but all I can say is we should get rid of this picture. It's just so,,,,controversial! oh dear my sensibilities. This piece of Art is striking me right to the core, cracking open my entire worldview. It's bad, we need to censor this Controversial atrocity. There will be riots in the streets.

When the "right" meets to protest its peaceful and pretty much "family friendly". No looting, no trashing everything in sight. No defecating anywhere and everywhere thats convenient ... or not. Its the left that actually indulges that behavior ... in spades.

I also remember someone doing a Cthulhu presidential campaign back in 2008....

As is your entire sarcastic post, Wei.

There will be riots in the streets.

Perhaps not because of this painting ... but if Obama and Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc. keep up with their race baiting ... it definitely raises the possibility, that there could very well be in the near future.


Personally, I don't really care how you feel about this painting one way or another. Am merely responding to the views that YOU yourself have put forth.

Didn't want you to think that it went over most folks heads in here. It didn't.

I was thinking the same thing. Granted I haven't been watching a lot of television news lately, but I haven't heard about this firestorm of controversy at all. This is the only place I've ever heard about it.

As for it being a controversy that is causing wailing and gnashing of teeth...hahaha I don't see it. This ranks somewhere between a misspelled Tea Party sign and a truck covered in bumper stickers.

All over the country, liberals toss and turn in their sleep as this infectious piece of visual TRUTH shatters their constructed reality. :rolleyes:
