Sean Hannity Breaks The Bank For Insane Anti-Obama Painting

April 3, 2012 4:28 pm Category: Memo Pad 68 Comments A+ / A-

Sean Hannity may have a new item to add to his list of instances of wasteful spending.

According to BuzzFeed, the Fox News pundit recently purchased the original acrylic version of right wing painter Jon McNaughton’s “One Nation Under Socialism” — a painting which depicts President Obama burning the Constitution.

(via mcnaughtonart.com)

It’s unknown exactly how much Hannity paid for the painting but McNaughton told BuzzFeed that his original works usually sell for around $300,000.

It’s also unknown how Hannity plans to reconcile the painting with his insistence that “you have to be respectful to the President.” One assumes, however, that it won’t stop Hannity from claiming that his employer, Fox News, is strictly “fair and balanced.”

    OK, now Hannity has dropped to a new low. Conservatives like to ask “Why does President Obama hate America?” I have to ask “Why do Conservatives hate anyone who is a Democrat who occupies the Oval Office?” This painting disgusts me.

    • ObozoMustGo

      Baron, we dont hate anyone who is a dumbocRAT who occupies the Oval Office. We hate the anti-American, socialist radicals that occupy the Oval Office……. wait….. uhhh….. OK, so I suppose I’m we hate most all dumbocRATS. You’re all a bunch of leftist nutjobs. This dumbocRATic party is NOT your Democratic party of your grand parents or great grand parents. This party has been taken over by the most radical leftist nutjobs from the 60s. It should be called the Democratic Socialist Party if they were to be honest.

      Have a nice day!

    The author complains that the Obama administration seks a Socialist state. Does he not see that the Republicans want a theocracuy and oligarchy, or perhaps a new monarchy or dictatorship.? once they have stripped the women of their rights, they focus more on removing civil rights from the rest of the 99%.

    • ObozoMustGo

      Truth Seeker… there is no truth in what you seek. You clearly are one of the many useful idiots who dominate this site. What do you mean Repubs want Oligarchy? Did you not read Obozo’s latest Executive Order on National Defense Resources Preparedness? Have you a single clue what an Oligarchy is? And this horseshit about stripping women of their rights? What a bunch of crap that is, and you leftist idiots know it. It’s like if you cant have free rubbers and BC pills, your whole world is being infringed upon. Get a life you idiot! You talk of the “99%”. You must be one of those Occupy Wall Street bums. Dont you have a tent city protests you should be at where you can get stoned and laid by whoever passes your tent? Go get a job and provide for yourself you loser!

      • david key

        What has happened to our country that we talk as though we hats each other? Such extreme rhetoric. We all need to reel it in. We are only hurting ourselves, and our countries image on the world stage.

        • ObozoMustGo

          Because, david, in many respects we do hate each other. We have 2 fundamentally opposed viewpoints where there is no compromise. You either like socialism or you detest it. You either like liberty and freedom or you like big government. You either value equal opportunity or you value government insured equality of outcomes. These ideas are 180 degrees apart. Those of us conservatives have been passive for 100 years while the radical leftists have taken over the DemocRATic party. We have been passive while the left has been mean spirited, lied about their agenda, and have tried to label those of us that adhere to the principles of our founding as some form of extremists. They have been following Saul Alynski’s script book for 40-50 years. Many of us are fed up with being passive and instead choose to point out the leftist nutjobs sheer stupidity and hypocrisy weherever we find it by calling them out, by naming them what they really are… complete morons and useful idiot tools of the left.

          Hope this helps. Have a nice day!

        Wow……I am impressed with your remarks….so eloquent and electrifying. Could U be from Ippississim?
        Now listen you dirtbag, you sewage, you racist, you uneducated moron, you draft-dodger………U poor SOB………U and your likes could not hold a candle to President Obama………..Obama in 2012!!!!!

        • ObozoMustGo

          I’ll remind you of some things. Here’s some of Obozo’s failures to ponder:

          1) Obozo comes into office $9T in debt. 3 years later, $16T in debt
          1a) 1st President to oversee a downgrade in US credit ratings in history!
          2) 2 years complete control of the government. NO budget as required by the Constitution. Still has no budget
          3) A new bankrupting entitlement program called Obozocare jammed through congress against the vast majority of Americans who were against it (and still are) and with the blessings of the idiot Pelosi who said “we have to pass the bill before we know what is in it”
          4) Persistent unemployment that has been the worst since the Great Depression, especially among blacks and young people. His administration keeps claiming unemployment is going down, but in reality, they manipulate the formula by reducing the # of jobs available.
          5) Promises to close Gitmo…. instead, he spends $750K on a soccer field for terrorists.
          6) Gas prices are up 100% across the nation. And Obozo is so dumb he actually believes that increasing supply has no effect on prices… what an idiot!
          7) Real inflation rates are close to 8% or higher. Who measures inflation without food and fuel??????? Obozo does!
          8) SOLYNDRA!!!!!!!! need I say more?
          9) OK… I’ll say more… SOLAR TRUST – $2.3 BILLION taxpayer dollars flushed down the toilet to Obozo’s rich finance guys and campaign donors. Company just declared bankruptcy.
          10) Fast and Furious!!!!! If this was a Republican Admin, all of you nutjobs that write on this web site would be going justifiably ballistic!! It would be the lead story on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSLSD, CNN, etc. etc.

          • whatisaliberal

            Oh please, OMG, don’t you realize the things you list are NOT Pres. Obama’s fault?
            Afterall, he had no idea what a mess Pres. Bush had made of things. He and Congress are to blame for ALL of today’s problems … oh wait, which party was in total control of Congress from 2006-2010? Never mind.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Hey whatis! You make a very good point. By the way, you notice Obozo running around claiming credit for more drilling in America than ever before? He doesnt tell the useful idiots that all drilling on federal lands is being done on permits the Bush Admin approved. He doesnt tell them that all the NatGas and new oil is coming from private lands. He doesnt tell them that his admin has not approved a single new permit for offshore or onshore drilling on Federal lands. That silly Obozo… he’s such a clown!

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_B6RROC4IUESHT322QS5VJVPYRM Lynda

            You really don’t understand macro economics do you. Trying to conflate the increase in the national debt to Obama without an understanding of the policies put into place requires tossing out reality. Those policies are still in place. The Bush Tax cuts were suppose to create jobs. Where are the jobs? The trillions spent on the two wars and the trillions still to be spent on veteran care for the next five or six decades. Yes Obama trimmed the fiscal and actual bleeding in one of those wars, but the other still continues.
            The drug up to Medicare that added hundreds of billions to the debt like the two wars as also not paid for.

            BTW, Peolsi did not say ‘so we know what’s in it.’ The word was so ‘you.’ Perhaps that was too subtle for you, but it means so the public will finally know what is indeed in the bill…and more importantly what is not…such as death panels.

            You can pretend that unemployment is still not going down if you believe such delusional nonsense, but the facts suggest otherwise. Yes agencies play with numbers, but take a look around the job market and perhaps you will notice an increase in folks working. The deficit in the treasury has begun to shrink due to an increase in revenue coming in from the new jobs.

            The Affordable Care Ace was certainly not jammed down anyones throat. It took fourteen months to take place, hardly jamming by any definition. The bill had to be discussed and passed through several congressional committees. Look it up.

            The number of folks still in Gitmo is only a fraction of what it was before Obama took office. Do you really not remember what happened when Justice tried to remove those folks and put them into prisons in the US? Why not blame those who stopped the process instead of trying to make Obama responsibile?

            There have been thousand and thousands of jobs created in alternative energy program. Solyndra failed and the cost to taxpayers might be $500 billion in guaranteed loans. In a free market society there are always winners and losers. Are you against our economic system? Government money has been provided to nuclear, gas and oil for many, many decades. If you bother to do a little fact checking you will find dozens of failed attempts in those energy fields as well. Was all of the money that did not produce energy for the bucks flushed as well?

            Your comment on gas prices alone is worth the price of admission. You clearly are a rookie when it comes to understanding the real world of energy production and pricing. Any fifth grader can point out to you the effect of world events, the increase of energy use in China, India and the rest of the globe as starters. Also the facts provided by the oil industry prove that production is higher today in the US than in recent years. We are selling gas abroad. Has that increase in supply helped you at the pump? No..don’t you really what to know why?

  • ObozoMustGo

    Why does anyone care what Sean Hannity spends his money on? Why are you leftist nutjobs always sticking your busy body noses into other people’s business? Who cares?

    It is a GREAT PAINTING though. I wish I could afford it.

    • frivolous01

      Well, if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black. You don’t think that the right deciding that women that have decided to have an abortion should be required to undergo an invasive ultrasound that is not medically necessary is a little bit of sticking your noses in someone else’s business?

      • ObozoMustGo

        For you to try to draw a moral equivalence between murder of innocent babies and what painting someone buys with their own money is laughable, but predictable for a leftist nutjob and useful idiot like you!

        • frivolous01

          So basically what you are saying is that you have no interest or ability to enter into reasoned and/or logical discourse. Rather you prefer to make Ad Hominem attacks on the character of people that you do not know in hopes of shutting them up. That’s cool, I kind of figured that out from your previous postings but I was willing to give you a chance. No further information needed. Thank you and have a great life.

          • ObozoMustGo

            Hey friv… I actually do have some good, decent conversations with people of the opposite veiw on this site. But the majority are just paid “talking point” posters from the Obozo community organizer’s team. And some of them are just plain insufferable morons…. or both. It’s a weakness of mine. I dont handle morons well. Sorry! Good luck to you, as well.

      He was raised a Marxist. He himself admits to his leanings in his books. Why do you get so worked up denying what he has told you? Racism?

        • ObozoMustGo

          Emilia… montanabill is NOT making anything up. Did you read Obozo’s book? He was raised a Marxist. His mother was a committed socialist and his father was a committed socialist and anti-colonialist. What is so hard to understand about what he himself has admitted?

          • Obama2012Hillary2016and2020

            I see that you have a lot of respect for the Office of the President of the United States of America. By calling PRESIDENT Obama “Obozo” it just goes to show how small of a person you truly are!

            And, so what if PRESIDENT Obama was raised a Marxist? I was raised a Baptist, but I saw the “light” and realized that religion is just something that people with low or no moral character do to make themselves feel better about the awful things they do in their personal life. So Jesus is REALLY going to forgive you for all your sins? NOT!!! I will give it to you that Jesus was a great person and a great teacher, but he is not the Almighty Savior he is made out to be.

            What would Jesus do? He would have respect for whomever is in office as the President of the United States of America! There was NO hatred in “His” heart. Maybe you should be more like him if you really believe that “He” will be coming to save you!!!

          • ObozoMustGo

            You’re right. I have no respect for Obozo the clown. I cant help it. He has no respect for America or our Constitution. He constantly pits Americans against Americans in rhetoric of class warfare. Why should I respect him?

            What division of the dumbocRATic party do you work for? Are you one of those paid cheerleaders to go on blogs and defend the indefendable?

            Obozo was raised a Marxist and YES, IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. His world view is one of class warfare, one of victimization, belief in equality of results, belief in governments ability to shape and change the nature of man. YES, IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. It explains everything about the man.

            Case in point, you were raised Baptist, but no longer attend or identify with a church. Interestingly enough, however, your views on Jesus Christ still remain with you and do in fact color the way you see the world and even me. You cant help it. It’s who you are. And Obozo is a Marxist.

            By the way, I dont really care what your religious beliefs or affiliations or non- affiliations are. I dont expect you to care about my beliefs or non-beliefs. Just that we respect one another’s rights to be what we want and NOT infringe on the other’s rights to do the same. Agreed?

            Have a nice day!

          • ObozoMustGo

            By the way, for the record… It was Hillary that started the whole “birther” thing about Obozo not being a legal citizen during the 08 dumbocRAT primary. You were aware of that, right?

        • montanabill

          Making things up? Do you mean like his upbringing? Or the statements in his own books? Is it really your position that if one does not agree with the President’s policies, they must be racist? You may call me all the names you want, but I do my homework and racial make-up has not a thing to do with anything. Maybe you need to do your homework and quit judging him by the color of his skin.

          • Obama2012Hillary2016and2020

            Hey montanabill,

            I am going to profile you right now. White male, late 50′s early 60′s, making over $100,000 per year in a white collar job, drinks every night of the week to “relax after work”, has 2 to 3 kids and about 8 grandchildren, goes to church every Sunday to be more like Jesus but after church is over gets into the car, lights a cigarette, cusses out fellow church members for cutting you off in the parking lot, and goes home and forgets everything you just learned in church.

            Sound about right?!!

            Why is it that all the Republicans want is to get that “nigger” out of office rather than put someone in that could do the job even half as good as PRESIDENT Obama has done. All of the exit polling shows that Republicans are just trying to settle for who they think has the best chance at beating PRESIDENT Obama in November and not getting someone in that can do a better job than PRESIDENT Obama.

            I did not like PRESIDENT Bush, or “W” as the Republicans liked to refer to him as, but I still called him President because the title demands respect no matter who is in the office! Maybe if you had more respect for the office and less hatred for the man in that office we wouldn’t be calling you a racist!

            OBAMA 2012!!!!!!

      first – as montanabill posted above, do a little research and see all the vile things said about Pres. Bush before whining about Pres. Obama being disrepected.

      And in case you are unaware, here elected officials and citizens are not required to ‘take orders’ from the President. He is supposed to work for the people – not the other way around.

    So, I guess you are angry that Hannity bought this picture before you? You know, you are the only one who spews hate on these forums. You know, many of us did not like Bush, but we did not attack him personally, just his policies. Just what makes you think you can talk about the president like that? Why don’t you go and find some right wing forum and spew your hate and racism there.

    • montanabill

      “we did not attack him personally”? Where were you during the Bush years? Do a simple search of the internet to refresh your memory.

      • whatisaliberal

        mahjong13, like so many others, seems blind to the hate and vile naming calling spewed by those on the same side of the argument. The hate-filled rhetoric seems pretty evenly disbursed on bothe the left and the right. I guess it’s all dependent on your perspective … and level of hypocrisy.

  • whatisaliberal

    And the National Memo thinks this is news because …?

    First of , how Hannity spends ‘his’ money is of no concern to you or me or anyone else as long as it is lawful.

    Secondly, I have seen McNaughton’s work. Although much it is definitely created with a strong political bias, it in no way is dispectful of the President. It is a commentary on what McNaughton believes are flawed policy and values.

    Contrast that with those on the left who have repeatedly depicted conservatives as tyrannts and bloody murderers who throw grandmas off cliffs and slaughter innocents.

    Of course it seems any criticism of President Obama is immediately labeled racist, hate talk by this ‘news’ source and most of its liberal* followers.

    *Liberal: Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded. REALLY!

  • DHGOVER

    It is with a sense of deep dread that I observe my old fear of the dumbing of America apparently coming true. I am from the Southwest, currently living in Massachusetts. I was pretty well prepared to live with the ivory tower intellectuals who think they know “the people” of America, but I could not have been prepared for the anti-intellectualism of the new Republican Party. I am more afraid of that misguided bunch of moralists than of ANY other group in the world. I keep having to remind myself that these people who were so large in my own history really believe the ignorant tripe they are spouting. I see us waging impossible wars in the Middle East and getting bogged down in tribal philosophies that have kept the common citizens of those nations enslaved by ancient chauvinistic godism. Actually, I hear a thread of that “old time religion” in the Republican diatribes. It’s too much. They have even politicized the Supreme Court. I watch our basic rights and freedoms flying out the national window while the legislators fight amongst each other like the kids in my neighborhood did when I was in third grade. Where is logic? Where is patient consideration of competing points of view? Where is true debate? Those debacles labeled Republican Debates were tacky and were conducted at the level of borderline intellectual functioning. I don’t think a thoughtful candidate against the Republicans would have to do anything but show 30-second shots of any of those debates and follow them by a one-liner…”Do you want any of those clowns to run this Nation?” Social Darwinism, well, that’s a two-edged sword. I can’t imagine living under that philosophy as interpreted by charismatic “Christians”. We have to live by what is, and Darwin was very close in many ways to telling us what is, but we are the thinking animal; we can decide what is a good path to follow, and we are capable of choosing a logical middle path that avoids the hate-fueled path of the fanatic. Logic must guide us if we are to survive. Logic is cool-headed. It neither rants nor gives itself a hand-forged halo. Let’s think before we vote about how we really want to live and move further into the 21st century.

    President Obama has already won his second term.

  • siegfried89

    Obama is not a Marxist. America already has adopted Communism: ‘Free’ public education, heavy progressive income tax, central banking system; Obama had nothing to do with any of these. You will know Obama is a Marxist when he takes your house away. Wait a minute, the banks are already doing that. Oh! by the way, great picture

    mahjong13: Probably because those ‘right wing’ forums are full of left wing crazies doing exactly the same thing. What ever happened to civil differences of opinions?

    And by the way, Hannity purchased a painting, an original work of art – not a picture!

  • ObozoMustGo

    Emilia, You’re a Republican like Barack Hussein Obozo is a fiscal conservative…. NOT!

  • openmyeye

    $300,000 for this piece of crap, hannity is such an idiot. Is this what the conservatives have to to do to try to get votes, to scare and bully people. How sad how very sad.

    Sean Hannity is despicable human being…. on second thought, he might be an Alien….

  • aphanumerical

    I’m glad I’m not you guys. If Obama wins or loses, I’ll still be me, and you guys will still be you guys, voting against your interest and screaming like little girls while you win an arms race against a bag of skittles. Tsk , tsk , tsk is the sound I make as I look down my nose at your little monkey faces.

    By the time you liberals understand how Obama and his Party’s leaders are taking away our Freedoms & disregarding “all of our’s” Constitution, it will be too late to turn back, then you will be crying, “what happened?”

    • ExPAVIC

      Paul where you always this stupid or is this a recent malady?

      I suppose you thought George W. Bush was the second coming as he screwed up the entire country while failing to nail Osama bin Laden.

      Yep, George was a real Republican, dumb and did nothing.

  • ObozoMustGo

    It’s really very simple, Lynda.

    1) Obozo has spent nearly $1.5 TRILLION PER YEAR more than we have taken in. That’s on his back, baby. It doesnt pass the smell test to say he’s not responsible for what he has done. Obozo is the first president to lead us into a credit downgrade in history. A dubious claim to fame indeed.
    2) Obozo restricts supply of oil, gas prices go up. Your whole convoluted excuse doesnt pass the smell test.
    3) The unemployment number presented in the news media is a number that is based upon an equation where the denominator (total jobs available) has been shrinking while the numerator (total people working) has been shrinking at a lower rate. Since Obozo took office, the total number of jobs available has gone down by 6 MILLION jobs. U6, the best measure of unemployment which includes those that have stopped looking and those that are underemployed puts real unemployment at about 15%. Regardless, if you go with Obozo’s best case numbers and say it’s 8.3%, it’s unvelievable that you leftists actually think this is good. 8.3% unemployment is horrible, unless your the lazy bums of France or Greece.
    4) And yes, Obozocare WAS jammed down America’s throat. 60% of the people opposed it. ZERO support from Republicans. Widespread distrust and growing resentment for government resulted in Obozo getting trounced in 2010.
    5) Obozo is NOT authorized to be a venture capitalist with MY tax dollars! In fact, it’s laughable that the dummies on the left dont understand that Obozo chose to launder money to his big campaign donors who were investors and would have lost their shirts without Oboze giving them money so they could give some back to him. Only useful idiots think that government drives private innovation. It does not, except in matters of defense technologies which the government has a resopnsibility to invest in for our protection.

    Have a nice day, Lynda!

    Comments like those from montanabill prove that there are many Zimmermans in this country. Just the sight of a black face, and if his (it’s usually the males that racists really despise) hoodie hides his face–yup. He’s up to no good. Time to get out the trusty shotgun! Very reminiscent of the blood lust of the Nazis at the sight of a Jewish face–sentiments alive and “well” in this country, and especially in the western and southern states. No surprise that Bill lives in MT.

  • citizenmb

    Any other station would fire Hannity, fortwith. But Fox News will probably give him a raise and a pat on the back. God help this country with the venom spewed day and night by that disreputable channel, corrupting minds and hearts with their lies and hatred.

    Sean Hannity is the epitomy of egg-sucking, chicken stealing gutter trash.

  • Clarpark24

    Don’t fall for the hype, this isn’t about race. Ever heard the name Bill Clinton? This is about the extremist base of the Republican party that can’t just oppose, but must demonize and persecute. Obama makes it easy for them – Black, young, foreigner father, foreign sounding name – but it wouldn’t have been any different for Hillary. For the moment we can only guess how many times you can work “president on the rag” or “president needs to man up” or “first lady still can’t keep it in his pants” into a headline in four years.

    We live in a time when a small but noisy faction on the right sees someone as easy going as Barack Obama as an evil presence, and someone as downright nasty and angry as Rick Santorum as a real guy. After a couple of minutes listening to wing nuts rant, I just thank God for keeping me sane.

    Is ignorance such a coveted commodity in this country that we we will shield and protect it at all costs. That we will bow down to whomever seems to expound what seems to pass as a rational thought at the moment, only to find out later that it has been manipulated and skewered to reinforce the belief systems and propaganda being regurgitated by the power elite of this country to maintain control. This is not a political struggle, this is a humanitarian call to arms to protect what is rightfully ours, this planet, this air we breath, this dwindling drinkable water supply we cherish and require for life. We are 7 billion strong and this is our world and like it or not, we will take it back from the users, the profiteers, the abusers of human rights, the greed of corporations whose bottom line is profits before people. So be warned and be aware that nothing can stop an idea whose time has finally come…. Our Arab Spring is upon us….Occupy or be occupied! Time has come today!
