Its Back … Artist Jon McNaughton Depicts Barack Obama Trampling The Constitution in “The Forgotten Man”

 

ART, A POWERFUL REMINDER …

Certain works of art just have a way of resurfacing over and over again … as does “The Forgotten Man” depicting Barack Obama trampling the US Constitution. What a powerful piece of art showing a man sitting on a park bench, representing “We the People,” as he tries to find the American dream as an overwhelming expansion of government is trust upon him. All the Presidents of the past look upon the government of today and Barack Obama trampling on out freedoms, liberty and Constitution.

As the artist Jon McNaughton says in the below VIDEO, actions speak louder than words, as does the brush strokes of his painting … “Mr President, you took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States”. If you have not already seen this video, I suggest you do so.

In front of the White House a man is sitting on a park bench in the throes of depression. He is surrounded by all 43 presidents. In the forefront, purposefully ignoring the depressed man is President Obama, whose right foot is stepping on the Constitution. James Madison is next to Obama, pleading with him to stop.

“For a long time I didn’t know if I wanted to paint this picture, because I worried it might be too controversial,” McNaughton explains in a voice over. “(T)his man (on the park bench) represents every man, woman, and child who is an American… he hopes to find the American dream of happiness and prosperity.

“But now because of unconstitutional acts imposed by the American people by our government we stand on the precipice of disasters,” he added.

      “As the artist Jon McNaughton says in the below VIDEO, actions speak louder than words”

      And it’s really no contest when the words are constantly absent.

      His painting and your blog adverts contain the same amount of detail in explaining exactly what parts of the constitution Obama has violated as every blog post where I read this claimed.

      If this were credible you wouldn’t expect it to be something I need to have a treasure hunt to find or prompt anyone to add.

      Much like the old meme that the “natural born citizen” definition in the constitution made him ineligible, if you have thousands of people making a specific claim about an easily quotable document without ever being able to explain that claim with references, that’s usually a pretty good indicator it’s because they can’t.

      Deeply disturbing. Dare We the People take bold action to restore constitutional order. If not, it truly is all over for us and for our progeny.
