Controversial Painter Depicts Obama With Burning Constitution

by on March 21, 2012
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.
