4. perfectly captures the how republicans see america-
-this is what the christian nut jobs call eduction, nothing more than a collection of symbols and easy lies. What is amazing is how they mention Lincoln, just some guy who was shot. Is that supposed to be a warning? In Texas, this is what our school board would be forcing teachers to teach.

The right wing is turning us into a nation of freaks.

16. The reality is many of the Founding Fathers...
...Also hated organized religion! The idea America was founded as a Christian Nation is joke! The Masons played a much larger role in crafting our Constitution than did the Christians. Not that I am a fan of the Masons but I would take them over organized religion any day!

Free speech and relying on reason and rational thought not Christianity is what many of our founding fathers used as guidance.

Edited on Thu Oct-08-09 06:21 AM by CJCRANE
The actual US Constitution has far too many socialeftist buzzwords like "we the people", "rights", "government" etc.

7. How illuminating - of their fears, ignorance and misunderstanding. The artist clearly
Edited on Thu Oct-08-09 06:28 AM by geckosfeet
has a revisionist perspective of the religious views of the founding fathers (Thomas Jefferson lined up behind Jesus!? - give it a rest).

This is a fine example of the modern day rural primitive propaganda style. It exhibits the classic misunderstanding of history, fear of the world outside of their sphere of existence and understanding, and a narrow intolerant regionalist view of religions role in our country.

9. What an idiot ..... Thomas Jefferson in his Jesus loves America pix?
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his god, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government
reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their "legislature" should "make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between church and State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in
behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in
opposition to his social duties. T. Jefferson

14. And Frederick Douglas (sic). And Ben Franklin. And Thomas Payne (sic).
Edited on Thu Oct-08-09 06:53 AM by Dogmudgeon
And about five or six other outspoken Freethinkers, Deists, Atheists, and Agnostics -- McNaughton isn't particular.

Or maybe he's really an atheist and this is his form of coded communication to his Satanic Masters. Or not.

--d!
(On edit: I forgot to properly spell McNaughton's misspellings.)

What a moran. If you can stomach it click on the "interview" w/ the artist.

Teddy Roosevelt was too liberal but he still put him in the picture & decorated combat
vet and WW II hero JFK kinda loved America.

13. and their captions remind me of bad Freshman writing
Edited on Thu Oct-08-09 06:45 AM by zazen
"Mr Hollywood. He represents your entertainment business in America. It is very apparent that there is a liberal slant with Hollywood. He looks down at the judge and pregnant woman with ridicule and amusement."

It's too early to do a full-blown rhetorical analysis. . . but I guess it's just their unfounded generalizations that emanate from their oral world of crazy theories, that they try to turn into "formal writing," as if that turns it into a statement of fact. Kind of like their idiotic Intelligent Design museum.

And talk about weird projections--people in Hollywood ridicule pregnant women? WTF?!

25. it's weird that they include Susan B. Anthony and give a "neutral" description
given that they represent every social force that attempts to restrain women from full participation in society.

Usually they try to co-opt the civil rights movement but not women's rights. Like, where's Martin Luther King? I can't believe they didn't co-opt his identity. Maybe they actually comprehend that his message was equally about class inequalities and therefore even more subversive than is commonly understood.

who had no use for their God or the kind of people who always know just what he wants them to do (particularly what he wants them to do to other people).

18. As a Canadian, this is really the kind of thing that reminds me...
that, in spite of all of our superficial similarities, in spite of all the American pop culture we consume, our countries are very different in some key ways. I just don't see that kind of painting being done here, even by our conservative christians. For example, a former leader of the Conservative Party once said that he believed dinosaurs and humans had coexisted and the earth was under 10,000 years old; he was universally ridiculed in the media and forced out of his leadership. In the US, mainstream media outlets can't go after the "bible is literal truth" crowd the same way.

I really find this painting fascinating!

22. what is worse, that 15-20 years ago, we would have done the same thing.
Flat earthers were laughed at. And then newt and his grinches took over, and conspired with the religious reich. From there, it was a sad step into a quasi-religious nation, with the separation of church and state being dismantled by design. Feith - based initiatives (sorry, dougie) STILL exist, if only because Obama has not bothered to put a stop to them. Hell, we just voted to re-fund abstinence policies, even though every single study shows that they fail, and worse, they make things worse.

It sure does not feel like we have a majority in congress, not with this crap occurring.

52. My favorite:
"Represents the modern American solider. With "King" written on his body,, he also fills in for Martin Luther King Jr. Because we can't have two black guys right next to each other. That would be a mob."

20. Wait... This is serious?
When I first saw it, I thought it must be from someplace like Landover Baptist (a religious parody site).

When you can't tell reality from parody, you know there's a problem.

26. We, the God-Fearing People of the United Christian States . . .
in order to create Heaven on Earth, establish justice for White, Anglo-Saxon, Christian, Corporate, Heterosexual Males, insure domestic tranquility by beating up niggers, kikes, papists, femi-nazis, wetbacks, terrorist Muslims and faggots, provide for the common defense by conquering the world for Christ, and to secure the blessings of liberty for those who render blind, unquestioning obedience to our leaders whom God has chosen, do ordain, establish and bless this sacred Constitution for the United Christian States of America.

:sarcasm:

This is why we have Separation of Church and State.

Why would anyone who has a clue put someone who is supposed to represent MLK in a bloody military uniform. Did the artist not know that MLK was against the Vietnam war?

That's about as far as I got. Clearly this fool has no understanding of the concept of separation of church and state.

Idiot.
