Provo painter depicts Obama torching Constitution [video]

John McNaughton, the stridently right-wing painter from Provo, is at it again.

McNaughton unveiled his latest painting last week on YouTube: "One Nation Under Socialism," which shows a stern-faced President Barack Obama holding up a copy of the U.S. Constitution -- which is in flames.

And in case McNaughton's imagery is too subtle for you to decipher, he includes a lenghty statement along with the video.

"At this very moment our Constitution is literally going up in flames," McNaughton writes (showing literally zero comprehension of what the word "literally" means). "What will you do to preserve the Constitution and save America?"

The Constitution is a big theme in McNaughton's works. In past paintings, he has depicted the Constitution held up by Jesus and stepped on by Obama.
