Painting Depicts Obama as Crucified Christ

Posted in Top Stories | 0 comments Painting Depicts Obama as Crucified Christ

Nov 26, 2012

By Todd Starnes

A painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on a cross is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston.

The painting by Michael D’Antuono is part of a larger exhibit called “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” It’s on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th.

The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president on the cross with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.

It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York City’s Union Square. But that event was cancelled due to public outrage.

“I always regretted cancelling my exhibit in New York because I feel my First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings,” D’Antuono told Fox News. “We should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.”

A spokesperson for the art gallery told Fox News there hasn’t been any criticism of the painting.

Lefties use these images and references purely for the offense and shock value. They not only don't know who He is; they really couldn't care less.

It's a way to give Christians the bird. That's all.

This “artist” specializes in visual propaganda of the sort Stalin liked to posterize. Of course, he thinks his work is too important to censor, but if he had lived in the land of his heroes, he would have fallen afoul of some apparatchik and been dragged off to the gulag a long time ago.

The first thing that struck me about the painting was Obama wearing an American Flag Pin.

That might work if it was partially burned and placed into a fish aquarium filled with pig urine.

No, I disagree. Somewhere in California there must be something akin to that painting already adorning a wall in at least one of our “prestigious” college or university campuses.

So far as I am concerned, the crucifixion cannot happen quickly enough.

The Romans thought it an excellent way to execute criminals, and in fact, MANY criminals were hung on a crucifix, to die in agony in public. The gallows and the guillotine are only newer and much quicker ways of public execution.

But like Robespierre, wishing these ends upon another sometimes comes around to claim its greatest proponent.

Equip him with scuba gear and they could make it a TV series. They could call it “Sewer Hunt”

“Come on you liberal artists, where is that picture of

That would basically be taking a photograph.

All the painting lacks are a few brown crap globs to expess the disdain people have for the crucified president. He deserves no respect, even in extremis.

It is a shame his feet are not shown. One bare foot immersed in urine would have been a nice touch.

Lastly, Come the resurection, he will be crucified again.

...and been dragged off to the gulag a long time ago...

I beg to differ. I think this "artist" would be, in the land of his heroes, a high-up party member in good standing, with his own prime Dacha.

On the other hand, Jon Mcnaughton would clearly be deep in a Siber... I mean in a Sonoran Desert camp.

It’s so striking! They say Bronco Bama is so much like Lincoln. Wha’ happen him, eh? They say Bronco Bama is a saviour. In history, every time some human puts another human into the ‘saviour’ category, there is a Brutus in the crowd.
Except for the repercussions, (which might thin out the herd a little, anyway), I’m waiting for this current carnal narcissist to meet his Brutus.

They are obviously misinterpreting the painting. Properly interpreted, you see Obastard as the crucified Dumachus (aka Dismas, Dysmas, Dimas, Demas, Zoatham and Rach).

Yes, this poor, put-upon man of color has only been elected president, not once, but twice! With the way the nutcase Left in this country has been acting since Obummer was re-elected, you would think he was soundly defeated. Were it only true...
