Sundays With The Christianists: In Great Artist Jon McNaughton’s Novel, Wingnuts Finally Win Every Argument

Sternums up, everybody! Time to wrap up our visit to the mind of Great American Artist Of America Jon McNaughton, as revealed in his teen novel Knight of the Superstitions. It’s a stirring tale of a young Mary Sue named Josh Knight, who with the help of his guardian angel Nathaniel becomes adept at seeing and defeating the surprisingly boring demons and other evil influences that plague our world. Last week we looked at Josh’s spiritual journey, such as it is; this week, we’ll take a look at the book’s very insightful political content, although we suppose McNaughton would say there’s no difference. So strap on your Spiritual Armor — we recommend strong coffee or maybe a Bloody Mary — and we’ll watch Josh strike a blow for liberty against the oppression of liberal education.

Instead of Trying To Be Funny About Ted Cruz Lecturing Trayvon Martin’s Mom, Here Is A Stand Your Ground Painting Instead

We couldn’t think of a way to make a joke about yesterday’s spectacle of Sen. Ted Cruz and other Republicans lecturing Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, about how “Stand Your Ground” laws have actually been good for black people. So instead, here’s something far easier to laugh at: “Stand Your Ground,” an inspirational painting by Constitution artist and great novelist Jon McNaughton. Subtle, isn’t it?

Sundays With The Christianists Special Report: Great Artist Jon McNaughton Wrote A Novel About God, Angels, And Good Posture

We’re going to take a short break from our American history textbooks for homeschoolers, because Alert Reader “Blanche” tipped us off to a self-published booklike object that we somehow missed when it splashed into the internet in late July: Great American Artist Jon McNaughton has written a novel that does for Teen Fiction what Christian Rock did for music. McNaughton took a little time away from painting Patriotic Classics like “Jesus Hands Washington the Constitution,” “Obama Burns the Constitution,” and “Bro Shames Democrat Preznits By Holding Up The Magically Unburnt Constitution,” so he could write a book. A book for young people, full of magic and imagination and wonder, with all the subtlety of McNaughton’s art. It is called Knight of the Superstitions, and it is easily the equal of the “Harry Potter” books, in that it contains words and can be purchased as an e-book. It’s getting rave reader reviews* on Amazon, which means that a whole bunch of homeschooled teens are going to have it dumped on them, poor things. We read it so you won’t have to.

Glenn Beck Doesn’t Know Much About Art, But He Knows What He Likes (Jesus, Furries, The Chick From Reno 911, Black Velvet)

As part of his insane “Man In The Moon” event in Salt Lake City that will save America yet again this weekend, Glenn Beck has some art for you all to enjoy. It’s hardly the earth-shattering game-changing revelation that he promised within 24 hours, three weeks ago, but it’s still art. We like Art, especially if we call it “ort” like Molly Ivins did. It’s purdy. And after you visit this collection of what TheBlaze pitches as “Stunning Paintings Intended to Restore Americans’ Confidence in God, Morality and the Declaration of Independence,” we are certain that you will agree: Utah produces Ort like Texas produces pregnant men. There’s just so much to say about this gallery of inspirational schlock, starting with, “Nice try, guys, but you’re still no Jon McNaughton. This piece, “Covenant Makers,” by Mike Malm, comes close, but while it’s McNaughtonesque in its deployment of emotional images and totally subtle symbolism, it lacks the bugfuck craziness that makes McNaughton without peer in the Wingnut Art world. Buckle up, because we are about to submit you to several wastes of perfectly good black velvet.

Jon McNaughton, America’s Greatest Painter, Now Fighting Slavery, Geography

Republican painter-artist Jon McNaughton has come out with a new painting! You know, in case there was too much subtlety in his painting of Obama presiding over a terror-wracked deathscape Sharialand populated by Nidal Hassan and unemployed brown people. This one’s called “The Runaway Slave,” and that torch means he’s voting for Romney. “Runaway” is a reference to his escape from the plantation of government dependency, and “Slave” is a reference to him, you know, being black.

America’s Greatest Artist Jon McNaughton’s New Painting May Be Too Subtle

Like the dude in that great Gahan Wilson cartoon, Jon McNaughton just paints what he sees. And judging by the apparent popularity of his work with at least some segment of Real America, his optic nerve is wired directly into the right-wing id. Still, one wonders: is it possible that McNaughton may at some point commit an act of artistic overreach, some grandiose hubristic mess like Francis Ford Coppola’s One From The Heart, Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate, or Jerry Lewis’s The Day The Clown Cried? It is perhaps too soon to judge whether McNaughton’s latest achievement, “Obamanation (One Painting That Says It All),” will be the artist’s crazy-old-man-yelling-at-a-chair moment, but at least we can say with absolute certainty that it is accurately titled: it contains “sixty symbols” of “the subtle, mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration.” Mr. McNaughton says that he produced this work in “an undisclosed studio” so he could “paint privately, without interruption” and possibly because he is such a powerful enemy of socialism that he feared Obama’s death robots would vaporize him with their abortion lasers or something.

America’s Greatest Artist Depicts Obama Burning The Constitution

Our old pal Jon McNaughton, the hero behind such paintings as 2009’s One Nation Under God (The Jesusy-Constitution one) (Don’t forget the Blood Remix!) and 2010’s The Forgotten Man has produced this new masterwork, One Nation Under Socialism, which you can purchase for a mere $345. What does it mean, this work of paintery in which Barack Obama is just stone cold lightin’ the Constitution on fire? Jon McNaughton will answer all of your questions.

Jon McNaughton Would Like To Address His Critics

The mastermind behind the greatest painting ever, Jon McNaughton, would like to go on the record: “Some of the chatter going around on these liberal blog sites I feel is unfounded.” Also: “Why Satan? I don’t for a second believe he looks like that, but I do believe he is real.” [Jon McNaughton Art] Read more on Jon McNaughton Would Like To Address His Critics…

‘Real American’ Records Actual Historical Event In Beautiful Painting

A bunch of you have sent us a link to this painting by a fellow named Jon McNaughton, depicting the divine event that took place during the hot Philadelphia summer of 1787, when Jeebus flew to America from his ice cave on Pluto to deliver the U.S. Constitution to some brat before an in-studio audience consisting of George Washington, Mister Hollywood, Liberal News Reporter, Satan, and others. “Jon McNaughton would like to set the record straight,” we read.
