    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, “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.”

    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 (signed on New Year's Eve 2011) and Obama's new Executive Order, this painting seems pretty accurate.

    I was looking at this; why does Flip Wilson look so mad?

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

    Because Geraldine left him.

    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.
    The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

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