Popular Artist’s Pro-Trump Painting Rejected – Patriots Demand To Know Why

Published

on

I am a big fan of artist Jon McNaughton and have been from the beginning. I think everyone should own one or more of his prints. He’s got incredible talent. Not only that but he has an uncanny way of looking into the hearts and minds of Americans and then painting what they really feel. His paintings are moving and patriotic and he’s a big fan of President Trump. What’s not to love? I urge you to look at his paintings… you will love him the way I do, I’m sure of it. He’s famous in conservative circles and is not only a talented artist, he’s got a sharp wit to go with it and he is an intellectual as well.

Facebook does not share my admiration of Jon McNaughton evidently. An ad for his latest painting that depicts President Trump ‘Crossing the Swamp’, reminiscent of the famous painting ‘Washington Crossing the Delaware’, was not accepted on Facebook. McNaughton’s site describes his painting as follows:

“Over 240 years ago George Washington suffered through Valley Forge and crossed the Delaware River to bring an astonishing victory to the Continental Army. This led to what many thought was impossible, to defeat a despot King and his formidable army.

“Today, Trump endeavors to cross the “swamp” of Washington DC as he carries the light of truth, hope, and prosperity. The murky water of the deep state is laced with dangerous vermin, perfectly willing to destroy American prosperity for their personal ideologies and financial gain. The establishment Democrats, Never-Trumper-Republicans, Deep State, and Fake News Media will do all they can to stop the majority of the American people from succeeding.

“As an artist, I paint what I feel needs to be said about the current state of our country. My hope is that Trump will be remembered as the President that restored America’s greatness. I want to be on that boat for freedom!

“Crossing the Swamp” “Never give up. Never lower your light. Never stop till the swamp is dry.” – Jon McNaughton”

The left immediately ridiculed the painting online. For those of us who are constitutionalists though, it has a significant and poignant meaning. In the boat are members of President Trump’s cabinet. Trump is standing and leading the way. Passengers in the boat include Nikki Haley, James Mattis, Ben Carson, President Trump, Jeff Sessions, Mike Pence, Melania Trump, Mike Pompeo, Sarah Sanders, Ivanka Trump, John Bolton, Kellyanne Conway, and John Kelly. I think it is certainly representative of Trump’s fight against the Deep State and his efforts to drain the swamp. It also pays homage to those who are fighting alongside him.

McNaughton submitted his ad to Facebook to promote his painting never dreaming it would be rejected. He tweeted out a screenshot of the rejection with a red circle around the rebuff from Facebook. Jon’s paintings have stirred controversy from the beginning and are a lightning rod for derision from the left. They depict current political events as he sees them. Facebook did not give a reason for the rejection and patriots demand to know why they saw fit to nix McNaughton’s ad.

Facebook runs ads for leftist groups all over the place including Media Matters, Planned Parenthood and a bevy of other radical leftist institutions. There is nothing wrong with this painting unless of course, you hate President Trump. Then there is plenty to not like I guess. I simply don’t get why Facebook would reject Jon’s ad here. It makes no sane sense.

If you will remember, Sean Hannity gave President Trump McNaughton’s ‘The Forgotten Man’ as a present immediately after his inauguration. It is a unique painting as well and McNaughton describes it this way:

“Against the background of a darkening sky, all of the past Presidents of the United States gather before the White House, as if to commemorate some great event. In the left-hand corner of the painting sits a man. That man, with his head bowed, appears distraught and hopeless as he contemplates his future. Some of the past Presidents try to console him while looking in the direction of the modern Presidents as if to say, “What have you done?” Many of these modern Presidents, seemingly oblivious to anything other than themselves, appear to be congratulating each other on their great accomplishments. In front of the man, paper trash is blowing in the wind. Crumpled dollar bills, legislative documents, and, like a whisper—the U.S. Constitution beneath the foot of Barack Obama.”

Jon McNaughton does not sell his original paintings. But in the case of ‘The Forgotten Man’, he made an exception. He sold the painting to Sean Hannity who in turn gifted it to Trump. The title is in reference to ‘The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression’ by Amity Shlaes. It’s a re-analysis of the events of the Great Depression, generally from a free market perspective. It was a heartfelt and apropos gift to President Trump. ‘Crossing The Swamp’ has even more feeling and patriotism in it if that is possible. Facebook needs to explain themselves on this. America is waiting.

Former Facebook Security Chief Just Blindsided Google CEO With Earth Shattering Claim

Many have been critical of Google’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, now a former Facebook executive has called out Google’s CEO for lying about the company’s motives.
Facebook’s former security chief Alex Stamos took to Twitter recently to attack Google CEO Sundar Pichai for his comments defending the company’s decision to move into the China market with its censored search engine known as “Project Dragonfly,” Silicon Beat reports.

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Pichai stated that Google was “committed to serving users in China” and compared Chinese censorship laws to the “right to be forgotten” law in the European Union. Pichai received severe criticism for this comparison, both internally and from those outside of Google.

“Tech companies constantly walk a difficult path between complying with local law and protecting human rights,” Stamos tweeted Thursday. “For Sundar to compare the “right to be forgotten” (which I agree is problematic) with censorship in China is, at best, amoral and mendacious.”

Stamos further added that: “China’s censorship regime is a tool to maintain the absolute control of the party-state and is in no way comparable,” to the right to be forgotten law.

Google software engineer Colin McMillen tweeted: “It is extremely bad that Sundar appears to either think that RTBF is morally equivalent to government surveillance & censorship, or that he appears to think that nobody will notice this analogy is extremely inaccurate.”

WATCH: Entire Eagles Offense Does Incredible Gesture For Veterans- Kaepernick Probably Pissed

The Eagles offense struggled on Sunday night, and put up their fair share of bad plays. However, their celebration game was definitely on point.

The defending Super Bowl champs hosted the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Which, also happened to be on Veterans Day. While the first part of the game brought forth precious little in terms of offensive output. The second half saw a burst of scoring from both teams and, a salute to our veterans from the entire Eagles offense:

The NFL has certainly done its fair share of damage in tarnishing the celebration of our flag, anthem, and military, by protesting during the national anthem. However, with those protests having all but disappeared, it would be good for the NFL to work towards resuming its former place as the primary celebrators of our flag and country, in American sports.

Sunday night was a good start.
