There are just so many things wrong with this painting (that Dunvegan discusses at length in his earlier post), I'll let you drink it all in for a minute for yourself:

For context, here's Wonkette:

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.

This painting, and the man behind it, helps bring into stark relief something that has been building in my mind lately.

All the loony teabaggers, Glenn Beck worshippers, snake handlers, white Southern racists and Michelle Bachmann HATE us -- the liberals, the gays, the atheists, the apostates and anything else that runs across their field of fear, animus and anger that day.  I mean real seething, bubbling, boiling, toiling and troubling HATE.

They view the lot of us as corrupt and fundamentally EVIL.  They really do think that we -- in league with Satan (and maybe even Undead Hitler) -- are actively committed to the enslavement of America under Marxism and the demolishing of what they view as "Real America".

I don't think I'm being too hyperbolic here.  This shit really scares me.  Because what are these people going to do in the face of what they HATE and view as EVIL?  Once enough people really internalize that Barack Obama is just as bad as Hitler was...  then what?

Do we need another Oklahoma City bombing before conservative people in the mainstream wake up and stop feeding this festering wound that is only growing more infected and gangrenous by the day?

Seacrest out...

What will it take before "mainsteam" conservatives (i.e. the not completely insane ones) start toning down the hate-filled, inciteful rhetoric?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
