Trump Painting Takes a Shot At Social Justice Warriors Take a Closer Look (new Jon McNaughton)
Political Insider ^ | April 27, 2018 10: | Rusty

An incredible new portrait of President Trump contains a subtle message for social justice warriors and college snowflakes about leaving their liberal mindset behind and learning to succeed in the real world on their own.

The painting, titled Teach a Man to Fish, shows a young man sitting on a bench alongside President Trump, accompanied by a tackle box. The President is holding a fishing pole, offering it to the young man.

The message is from an old proverb which helps explain the mindset that divides Republicans who are pro-work and reward and Democrats who like handing out free gifts.

The sage advice reads:

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day;
Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

In other words, teaching someone to help themselves is a far better virtue than giving them a handout.

My new painting, “Teach a Man a Fish.” — “You can give a man a pole. It doesn’t mean he will use it.” —JonMcNaughton.com pic.twitter.com/yEvMO8sBZo — Jon McNaughton (@McNaughtonArt) April 25, 2018

The painting was created by world-renowned artist Jon McNaughton and contains another subtle message within.

Take a closer look at the young man’s books that he has left on the ground.

Two of them are titled Socialism and Justice Warrior.

“I imagined President Trump sitting next to a young college student,” McNaughton writes. “His pack is beside him and his Socialism and Justice Warrior books laid aside. He listens to Trump’s proposal and looks at the different bait he can use to catch his fish.”

“Trump offers him a fishing pole,” he adds. “Each of us has the freedom to choose our own destiny.”

The only remaining question is this – Will the young man choose the path to provide for himself, or will he remain with his victim mentality looking for handouts like any good socialist would?

Build a man a fire, he stays warm for a few hours.

Set a man on fire, he stays warm for the rest of his life.

I would wonder if a man in full suit and tie on a bench in a flowered meadow holding a heavy duty possibly surf rod with a fly actually is a very good fishing teacher.

Good thought, poor execution

The top book is “Positive Policy Accomplishments During the Obama Presidency”. The pages are blank.

From the article:

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day;
Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

In other words, teaching someone to help themselves is a far better virtue than giving them a handout.

I think he meant to show Trump as we always see him.

Powerful. But what good is this when the Democratic governor of PA can nullify my vote by conspiring with the PA Supreme Court to redistrict my area (Tim Murphy’s old PA-18 Congressional District) into a solid Democratic one and we’re stuck with Democratic hack Mike Doyle as our Congressman. We didn’t even have a Republican running against Doyle until one week before the primary, a black female from McKeesport stepped in as a write-in candidate on the Republican ticket, her name was T. Mack. She said she’ll run against Doyle in the fall.
