While much of the art world and entertainment industry leans decisively to the left, there are those among them who hold a more conservative ideology, and some of those are increasingly speaking out about their beliefs through the use of their own talents.

One of those is conservative artist Jon McNaughton, a Utah-based artist who over the years has painted a number of compelling portraits that were first exceptionally critical of former President Barack Obama and are now supportive of President Donald Trump.

McNaughton’s latest work of art centers around the current sharp divide between Trump, who aims to secure the nation by securing the southern border, and numerous prominent Democrats who have staunchly opposed and obstructed those efforts.

The painting is titled “National Emergency,” and it features a number of prominent Democrats standing atop a tattered American flag — while holding various flags representing other nations or groups — as the president looks sadly upon the lost doll of a little immigrant girl forced to make the dangerous and illicit cross-border journey into the U.S. … as a caravan of countless illegal migrants approach the border in the distance behind them.

In McNaughton’s description of the work, he wrote, “In my new painting, the Democrat establishment declares victory against President Trump as he announces a national emergency to secure the border. They proudly hold the flags they represent and cherish.

“Our politicians have become traitors to this country, in most cases they are more loyal to whichever country, lobbyist, corporation, or special interest group that will keep them in office and line their bank accounts. I’m sick of how they trample our flag and do not seek America’s interests first,” he continued.

McNaughton added, “Trump stands apart from them with his head bowed contemplating the state of our border situation. He sees a lost doll left behind by a little girl forced to make the dangerous journey. To not build the wall is to allow people on both sides of the border to suffer needlessly.”

As can be seen in the painting, McNaughton provided great detail in his representation of those who currently stand most opposed to his border security efforts, and shows by way of the flags they are holding where their interests lie, ahead of those of the American people.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is holding the flag of communist China, while Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren holds one for the European Union. They stand beside Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who are holding a Mexican flag together.

To the other side of Pelosi and Schumer stand failed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with an Iranian flag and former President Obama with a United Nations flag.

In the background stands New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a New York flag alongside Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who hold up a Palestinian flag. California Reps. Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters can also been seen holding a California flag.

Meanwhile, a veritable horde of people are crossing through the desert toward the border in the far distance behind all of them, as the Democrats cheer about blocking Trump’s efforts to halt that flow of humanity.

President Trump made numerous efforts to reach out and negotiate with a Congress to find an agreeable solution to the ongoing crisis at the border, to no avail.

As a result of the decided lack of cooperation from Democrats, Trump finally fell back on congressionally authorized presidential powers to declare a national emergency to directly address the situation himself.

Of course, the Democrats are fighting that, too, and have refused to relent in their incessant opposition to everything done by Trump, up to and including stomping on the desires and interests of the American people who voted to elect the president that is so despised by the left.

This painting beautifully, if quite tragically, sums up the current situation in a rather stark, but necessary, manner.

    Wonderful, & devastatingly on point & sad. I would only have suggested that the artist put the IS IS flag in Omar’s hands.

    This is eight years of Obama’s putting Mus lims & socialists in our government; & upping the indoctrination & brainwashing in our schools. Today’s environment is an example of how Is lam is the “religion of peace:” Don’t object, do as you’re told, & peace will remain. Objection is met with protests, slander, Lies, obstruction, intimidation, & threats; & will ultimately devolve into open civil war & genocde, as is the history of the twins Is lam & Communism/Socialism.

    all i have to say is this. Why can’t we just dump all these traitors into an area far far away and let them start there own country that they can run and destroy on their own..
    Me personally i am sick and tired of the display of true hate for us, the American people by these left from these left over subhumans that have NO SENSE of reality because they haven’t lived in the real world like we do for so long…They have been being fed, paid and nurtured by all of us in the blind faith that they would do what is BEST for our country..Trump is hated by them because he brought out all the dirty laundry for the world to see…he destroy there perfect little world..and NOW WE ALL KNOW just how MUCH the DEMON RATS HATE US…and love our enemies…

    THIS PICTURE IS NOT JUST A JOKE OR A LITTE HUMOR. REALLY IS FACTUAL. ALL REPUBLICAN AND OTHER NON-DEMOCRATS NEED TO PUT THEIR “BIG MAN” PANTS ON AND SHUT THEM DOWN. DO YOUR JOBS! WORRY MORE ABOUT AMERICA THAN MAYBE LOSING A FEW VOTES. DO GOOD WORK AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED WITH VOTES FROM OTHERS.

    Spot on! Wonderful painting of the trueness of character of the Left and where their allegiance lies…..not with the United States and its citizens.

    I would opine, that all the folks in the painting holding flags other then the US flag, are traitors, and as such should be executed!

    I would love to have a copy of this painting, to hang in my house. I live close to the border and I know what kind of crisis we have. I have lost friends, on Facebook, as they call me racist. Of course they live in Maine, Chicago, and Virginia, and have no idea what they are talking about. CNN, MSNBC and the Democrat party have done a great dis-service to the American people for lying so much and talking about NO CRISIS, when I believe they all knew better. The want open borders.
