The ‘Divider-In-Chief’ just can’t help himself, can he?
Every decision he ever makes seems to be designed to undermine and undercut America and the things that make it strong.
Even the painting by which he is to be remembered, and the man he chose to paint it.
Of course, Doug has a fascinating take on it:
Dear CNN: Obama’s Portrait Artist Likes To Paint Blacks Beheading Whites – Is That 'Racism?'
Posted by ClashDaily.com with Doug Giles on Tuesday, February 13, 2018
CNN gave the artist, Kehinde Wiley, a ‘glowing’ profile. Of course they did.
Social media had a field day with the portraits, because of how ridiculous they look.
Here’s one of the better parodies making the rounds:
Leaving aside his preference for making it look like he’s used your grandmother’s couch as a canvas, there is something about this painter’s body of work that — if key details were reversed — would be inciting calls of ‘Nazi’ from these very same news outlets.
The Media(D) are somehow blind to that when it occurs in the reverse. See for yourself.
Here is a black woman swinging a white woman’s severed head:
Here’s a close-up:
Another one like it:
Here’s the close-up:
His defenders are saying that other artwork portrays violence, including beheadings as historic. True enough, but they were almost always connected to a particular well-known classical or biblical story. Or recounting a famous historical event.
It should be easy, then for his defenders to tell us which epic scene in a well-known story is he bringing to life with these decapitations? Or are we right in saying it is just another tired example of race porn?
Speaking of ‘race porn’, what’s with the Black Panther hero-worship?
Can you imagine the outrage to a sympathetic portrait of some guy in Klansman garb? Without resorting to ‘special pleading’ please explain how is this REALLY any better.
We’re not even saying the artist lacks talent, per se. We are saying something much worse. He is derivative.
Some key ideas he’s gotten wrong in his worldview have actually hamstrung him. For example, he mistakenly said that Church Art was about power… which must be his rationale for ‘appropriating’ it.
Dude, seriously. Take a breath. Not everything is about politics. Historically, Church Art was about — would you believe — devotion. About beauty. About pointing to something beyond the here and now. They believe their faith MEANT something, that it mattered who and what they worshipped.
Which is why works like this fall flat.
Hollowing out religious ideas by stripping it of the original meaning and politicizing it? And race-baiting in the process?
No WONDER Obama loved this guy.
They’re two of a kind.
Maybe there’s a hidden meaning there:

Personally, we feel like this would have been the most appropriate portrait — especially with his legacy being wiped out so thoroughly.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Ladies, get yours here.
