BUZZFEED - Popular conservative artist Jon McNaughton has released a new painting, the latest in his controversial series of anti-Obama artwork.

The Empowered Man—which shows President Obama watching in horror as a thirty something white male, standing in front of the White House holds up the U.S. constitution in one hand and a wad of cash in the other—was released this week.

“I wanted this painting to reflect the hope many Americans are having that we can steer our country back on track,” McNaughton emailed BuzzFeed. “I used real models and it took a couple of months to paint.”

The Empowered Man is a follow up to another painting called Wake Up America, which included inflammatory images of President Obama standing in a rain shower of corporate cash while American workers trudged along in chains. {Click For More}

  1. The images are only "inflammatory" because they are aimed at Obama and not Bush or Reagan.

    1. One thing is clear, they would be "inflammatory" to some group regardless of how framed.

      For those in the liberty movement McNaughton has them framed almost right. I believe the LCR pointed that out in post in his post at LCR.
