Fiery artist paints Obama with a burning Constitution3/21/2012
Utah-based artist Jon McNaughton has released a new painting, "One Nation Under Socialism," that shows President Obama holding onto a burning copy of the Constitution. McNaughton's previous works include a Constitution-toting Jesus and Obama calmly standing on top of the Bill of Rights (Are you sensing a theme here?) Although New York magazine's art critic called McNaughton's latest "visually dead as a doornail," and his Obama does kind of looks like the guy in the Allstate commercials, what McNaughton lacks in artistic ability he makes up in controversy. "Socialism" has sparked an intense debate between McNaughton's supporters and those who probably aren't about to place an order for the $345 print.
Is McNaughton an artist or an antagonist?
