Obamunists Push Idolatry to New Extreme of Blasphemy

A portrait of the new Messiah will be officially unveiled at New York's Union Square on April 29, to mark the 100-day anniversary of his Ascendancy. Here it is:

the-truth-michael-dantuono.jpg

The 30" x 54" acrylic painting, by Michael D'Antuono, is entitled, "The Truth." It is evidently not a sick joke, but an actual tribute, inspired by religious awe. The title is a reference to John 14:6.

To liberals, Obama isn't a cheap little punk, a Marxist saboteur, or a post turtle. He is a deity. After he absolves the white man of his sins by destroying America, we will have heaven on earth in the form of a Third World socialist utopia.

I support Obama, but don't like this or find it funny. The only funny thing is, you're spreading it around!

Man, some Americans really like to idolize their Presidents. Here in Australia we see the PM as just another bloke with a job to do, but comparing Obama to Jesus? Bizarre.

OMO! (Get it?)

Moon - he's "spreading it around" cuz it's already going around...notice the On tips from Antara, SK, V the K, Burning Hot, and Byron. Hat tips: theblogprof, NewsBusters, and Gateway Pundit. he mentions after it....


sooooo many tips etc.... don't climb all over Van because he's also laughing at this audacious indoctrination of the "obamesiah"!

I doubt there's a conservative behind this.

Maybe you're not a "Moonbat" then?

can we say "WTF" here? they'll eventually get the messiah they deserve - hope they like it hot.

If this is serious, then I believe we've found our anti-Christ.

I think a King Tut hat would be more appropriate for the Boy King.

This is the funniest thing I have ever seen. It seriously does make one wonder what length the moonbats will go to in order to transform Obama into an icon. Imagine Obama busts with "CHANGE" inscribed on them. The commemorative plates are cheesy enough. The common man that our president claims to be is so overly commercialized and marketed to his Kool Aid drinking masses that I laugh at the sheeple on the hourly basis.


Check out my blog today. I talk about liberal moonbats and their influence in my life.

Umm, yeah. Who is the audience for this sort of hagiography? You guys cheered when he accepted the nomination in the Greek Temple set. You guys were making schoolchildren sing songs of praise in his honor. You guys are the ones who mindlessly chanted "Hope and Change" all of the last year. You guys are the ones who've put him on the cover of Time Magazine (often with his head surrounded by a halo-like glow) more often than GW Bush had in all eight years of his presidency.

You guys have treated Obama like a Messianic figure from Day 1 of the campaign, you own this one, pal.

Posted by: Gregory of Yardale at April 27, 2009 8:19 AM

Ready to call anyone the anti-Christ. Eugh. If you really read and believed in the bible you wouldn't find it funny, but blasphemous.

And why wouldn't a conservative be behind it, cowlove? It would be the perfect thing for you to paint, then post, then complain about.

Yeah, we're running short of things to ridicule lefties for, so we had to resort to making things up. How'd you stumble onto the conspiracy? Now we have to off you. :(

Here's your sign, and your tinfoil hat.

Posted by: cowlove at April 27, 2009 8:25 AM

The Left just gets sicker and sicker and sicker.

Posted by: Kevin R at April 27, 2009 8:50 AM

tinfoil hat and kool-aid. Two things you've latched on to that don't have anything to do with me or most lefties.

It makes it easier to hate us if you make us weird though. ANd saying stuff like "here's your tinfoil hat" seems a lot like a "shut up weirdo" argument.

But by all means, turn me into whatever you need me to be. If that's what you think I am, then there's probably not much that's going to change your mind.

Lol. If you have a problem being classified as a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist, then don't say such silly things like, "It would be the perfect thing for you to paint, then post, then complain about." You were far better off just leaving it at, "I support Obama, but don't like this or find it funny."

If you feel like I'm calling you a weirdo, it might be because I'm noting how freaking weird the things you're saying are, ya know? Oh, and I never said anything about kool-aid, but if the shoe fits...

Posted by: cowlove at April 27, 2009 8:57 AM

Unlike the Confederacy of Anonymous Idiots, we on the right are smart enough to Google the name of the artist, "Michael D'Antuono..." and discover his own comment on the piece in question.

"Aided by the media, politics has taken a nasty turn in the last decade and I firmly believe that this is one of the underlying causes of our nation's current problems," says D'Antuono."

In other words, the Savior, Obama, has been crucified by the "nastiness" of politics and media. Since the left-wing media haven't been exactly crucifying Obama, it's pretty clear which side he thinks is.

Posted by: Gregory of Yardale at April 27, 2009 8:58 AM

appaling how the conversation is following Obama's path of "deflect & deture"....look here...while over here I .....

yet, here "they" are - at tinfoil, antichrist & koolaid...completely missing the point of the whole reason Van posted it...

Posted by: Heather M at April 27, 2009 9:02 AM

This confirms the cult of personality surrounding Obama.

It also poses him not as the messiah, but the anti-christ. When Jesus died, the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom. This painting has the veil being spread from bottom to top. Oops. D'Antuono needs to pay more attention in Sunday school.

Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s chief propagandist, said in a broadcast on 19 April 1936, that "Germany has been transformed into a great house of the Lord where the Fuhrer as our mediator stands before the throne of God.".

From German Propaganda Archive http://www.bytwerk.com/gpa/images/hoff1/hitler5.jpg

therealbarackobama.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/obama-sign-of-progress.jpg

"The luxury, the perversion, the iniquity, the wanton display, and the Jewish materialism [of Berlin’s commercial district] disgusted me so thoroughly that I was almost beside myself," Hitler recalled. "I nearly imagined myself to be Jesus Christ when he came to his Father’s temple and found it full of money-changers. I can well imagine how he felt when he seized a whip and scourged them out."


===========

Germans had only to find the right passages in his autobiography, Mein Kampf, to understand that Hitler literally demanded planetary conquest of them. As he put it himself, world peace could not arrive until "that day when the man superior to all others will have conquered and subjugated the world."

Just blasphemous. Can you imagine the furor that would erupt in the Muslim world if he was depicted as their prophet?

I find the painting extremely ironic because eventually, like it or not, that TOTUS will be crucified.

Posted by: Corona at April 27, 2009 9:58 AM

Violent and ridiculous to the end, and still outraged and curious as to how you're so marginalized.

Posted by: Moon bat at April 27, 2009 10:08 AM

You seem to be very familiar with Nazism "Artfldgr" I guess that makes sense.

I've never seen this logo you post before. And other than this, you fail to make any connection whatsoever with the current presidency.

Posted by: Moon bat at April 27, 2009 10:23 AM

If Obama were the Messiah, he would have preached that only the Top 5% of Saints had to be crucified for your sins.

Posted by: V the K at April 27, 2009 10:39 AM

Someone asked how do you know this was done by a liberal?
You can usually tell liberal art by the following (abridged) checklist:



  • tasteless/crass
  • banal
  • immature
  • meant to shock (excuse me: make people "think")
  • iconoclastic
  • plagiaristic
  • worthless
  • malodorous
  • syncophantic
  • visually awkward
  • stupid
  • done in human urine or feces
  • about human urine or feces
  • arrogant
  • noninovative
  • baseless
  • meaningless
  • trashy
  • thin/trivial
  • cartoonish
  • offensive
  • obvious
  • humorless
  • obscene



  • No. This definitely smells of liberal.
    Hope this helps you out.

    "Violent and ridiculous to the end, and still outraged and curious as to how you're so marginalized."

    Sadly Moon Bat, there are many on both left AND right who are "violent and ridiculous". It is those of us who try to live our lives by the rules of common sense and common decency who have been "marginalized".

    Not everyone who voted for Obama fits the definition of Moonbat, but neither are most of those who voted against him Rightwing Extremists, Racists or Radicals.

    Ironically, it has been the tolerance for "diversity" of moderate conservatives and classic liberals that has allowed the Western world to be overrun by moonbats. Perhaps if the "Silent Majority" had found its voice sooner, the world would be a much safer (and saner) place.

    Yes "Fiberal" (how many fibs do you tell, by the way?)

    This list you made up out of your prejudice and hot sir is extremely helpful. According to this site, conservatives are wonderful and liberals are terrible and should alternately be shot, or crucified, or whatever ....

    Talk about your party kool aid. How much thinking did that take.
    1. Get angry
    2. Make list

    Dear artsy liberals, if this is just artistic expression, why not: Depict Obama in full Arab dress, surrounded by 14 wives, one of which looks to be about 9 years old. Make his left hand very very dirty and his beard exactly the size of a fist. You could have a tree off to the side, whispering where all the Jews are, so he could kill them. To add a touch of kitsch, you could include that horse he visited heaven on.

    Why not? Could be meant to shock, or at least make people think.

    Posted by: Karin at April 27, 2009 11:26 AM

    JESUS was crucified between two theives obama surrounds himself with theives

    Posted by: SPURWING PLOVER at April 27, 2009 11:30 AM

    If that's what comes to your mind Karin, then go for it. But don't take the dirty dregs from your mind and make it mine.

    If you really think the president is an Arab pedophile, you're free to do so. I doubt your picture would make anyone think though.

    I also find it odd that nobody here thinks a conservative would have made this painting. What you call the liberal media may shed some fancy light on their subject, but its you folks that keep calling him CHrist and anti-christ alternately. Seems fitting that one of you would make it in the first place.

    Moon Bat,

    "--liberals are terrible and should -- be crucified--"
    That seems to be the message in the painting. I see it worked on you.


    Karin

    "Could be meant to shock, or at least make people think"
    Correct. (see list; last post)



    Anon

    "I also find it odd that nobody here thinks a conservative would have made this painting."

    See list; last post- Please apply to odd finding.

    Posted by: Fiberal at April 27, 2009 12:02 PM

    IMO, this is a massive publicity stunt by the artist to draw attention to his work. Actually, I think he intended to target both extremes equally.

    This is an interesting statement: "D'Antuono insists that this piece is a mirror; reflecting the personal opinions and emotions of the viewer; that "The Truth" like beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. D'Antuono expects that individual interpretations will vary as widely as they do in the political arena. The work will be seen by one viewer at a time behind a voting booth-inspired public installation."

    And this shows how it will be displayed. http://www.dantuonoarts.com/pfinal.pdf

    "Ready to call anyone the anti-Christ. Eugh. If you really read and believed in the bible you wouldn't find it funny, but blasphemous."
    I DO find it blasphemous. I don't consider Obama the Antichrist, for two reasons:
    1. It is believed the Antichrist will come from somewhere in Europe, most likely Italy.
    2. Base on what I know of the Bible and its commentaries, the Antichrist's initial popularity will make Obama look like William "She Bangs" Hung in comparison.
    "And why wouldn't a conservative be behind it, cowlove? It would be the perfect thing for you to paint, then post, then complain about."
    Gasp! Oh noes! They're on to us, they've figured out our conspiracy! And we would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!
    LMAO!
    " ANd saying stuff like "here's your tinfoil hat" seems a lot like a "shut up weirdo" argument."
    No, it's a "You're acting like a brainless, paranoid, consiracy theorist nutjob" argument.

    "If you really think the president is an Arab pedophile, you're free to do so. I doubt your picture would make anyone think though."
    You really are a buffoon, aren't you, Anon?
    Karin was saying if you're going to make a painting of Obama as Jesus, why not also make a painting of Obama as the Muslim "prophet" Mohammad? The vast majority of her description was in keeping with things the Koran says about Mohammad, including the fact that Mohammad had over a dozen wives, including a little girl whom he married when she was 6 years old and first had sex with when she was 9. The point he was making is one that we conservatives have been making for years now, with the left never giving a legitimate answer: Why is it that the liberal media and liberal "Artists" love doing blasphemous mockeries of Jesus, yet almost always refuse to make such mockeries of Mohammad?

    "I also find it odd that nobody here thinks a conservative would have made this painting."
    The vast majority of consevatives would not blaspheme Christ in such a way.
    btw, much of the left HAS compared Obama to Jesus. Louis Farrakhan has called him "The messiah," a few liberal bloggers have claimed he's the Second Coming, and when Rolling Stone Magazine (The liberal rag of choice for stoned college students) made an issue endorsing Obama, the cover was a picture of Obama radiating a divine glow.

    NEWSFLASH:

    The artist insists that the work was intended purely as a political piece. "The religious reference was used metaphorically and not to insult anyone's religious beliefs. If that is the effect that my art has had on anyone, I am truly sorry," says D'Antuono.

    In other words, we just don't get it.

    Okay. so this was not an actual confession to a liberal ideology but the face-hanging-out-stupidity of the man is one big clue.

    (See list; post before last)

    If you're going to keep insisting that Obama is Jesus, I guess I can't talk you out of it.

    I actually pity him. He appears to be a rather simple minded idealogue put into politics as some one's front man (Soros maybe?).

    It would be in his best interest to quell this sort of display quickly and very firmly, before the left decide he is worth more as a martyr than a President. If his supporters and handlers see the rush to socialism loosing steam I would not want to be him.

    good think your accross the net moon, or you would have gotten a slug to the mouth.

    my family were killed in both hitlers and stalins camps. not because they were like you, smug leftists running the camps

    here, you can read and see what happened to my family.

    home.parks.lv/leonards/BaigaisGads/eng/Lapas74_76.htm

    Within all the nearest surroundings of Riga were found pits with shooting victims. In each of them were 10 - 30 corpses or more. In Biķernieki were discovered new graves, in Dreiliņi more in another.

    How many of such mass graves were hidden and still is hiding all unfortunate, befouled with severity Latvian land? The names of many who were found in the graves are not known, the destinies of countless others can not possibly be followed up even today


    yes. my family knew the socialists well, but unlike the socialists you follow they were not treated well with wine and food, and such...

    no, they were given homes, and this is where they dwell. now.

    to look through my family album, would tear your heart out... out of a huge family, with lots of cousins and all knew each other...all the property, the houses, the children, everything.

    all buried in mass graves...

    still want to sound smart moon?

    for I know one thing you dont... I know who they come for first, and they come for the traitors like you. the people who put their own selfishness ahead of their state. they are too dangerous to let live, so they go first. this prevents the counter revolution.

    enjoy what you have...
    for i know what you will get...
    and i am too old to share it with you...
    so you can have it all to yourself..

    you will eventually sit and dine at a table laden with teh consequences of your actions, hope you can stomach it.
