Artwork Critical Of Obama Displayed On Nation’s Most Liberal Campus

While it can easily be said that Libertarians and Conservatives have the thinkers, there is no doubt that Liberals have the artists. In fact, it has long been conceded by people on both sides of the aisle that the left owns art, especially the world of political protest art.

If you need proof of this, think back to the early 2000’s when you couldn’t turn on the television or go online without encountering some vapid painting or slam poem made with the intention of criticizing the Bush Administration. Think of all the artists and activists that tried to crucify Bush over his foreign policy that have fallen mysteriously silent now that their candidate is in charge.

It was this hypocrisy on the part of leftist artists that inspired Boulder based photographer Patrick Waters to create a series of images that attempts to break Liberal’s stranglehold on political art.

By combining surrealist imagery with the bite of H.L. Mencken style political satire, Waters is able to strip away the pomp and circumstance of American politics in order to reveal the sordid underbelly of D.C. and its leaders.

What is most shocking about Waters’ photos is not their subject matter, but the fact that they were displayed at one of the country’s most liberal campuses. Last March, Waters’ images were prominently displayed at a gallery in the middle of The University of Colorado at Boulder, a school infamous for having only one Conservative academic.

In an interview with The Gateway Pundit, Waters said that he was worried that his photos would be vandalized or that he might be academically persecuted for his views. Thankfully, this was not the case.

While Waters’ images are strange and sometimes abrasive, it is nonetheless important to seek out and foster creative political voices outside of the left. It is high time that Conservatives and Libertarians reject the notion that only those on the left are able to make artistic criticisms about politics and reclaim culture.

          “This site proves that statement wrong and the conservative candidates for President solidifies that it is idiotic….”

          It’s amusing to watch daily how Liberals like yourself make broad, unsupported, & snarky declarations while demanding from Conservatives proof that the sky is blue. Then, when we do give you 50+ substantiated points on any subject you quickly run to the corner denying you asked for anything and then bellow about how obsessed we are!…hahaha. You non-thinkers are so cute sometimes.

          Like little Kindergartners that never grew up- still yelling, “It’s not fair! Life’s not fair!” 🙂

          • Doug says

            Comprehension isn’t a strong point for you. Where. Did. I. Mention. Obama?

            You’re obviously upset and a very sad sad person.

          • wetboy says

            Again, you make my point by making broad and unsubstantiated statements. It is a hallmark of liberal arrogance and pseudo-intellectualism that to disagree with their OBVIOUSLY superior viewpoint, one MUST be a… sad, upset, obsessed, angry, inbred {Insert negative character trait here} person.

            No, It couldn’t possibly be because we have well-thought out philosophies that offer the broadest possible freedoms and prosperity to the most amount of people.

            There’s a principle in psychology called transference…and you progressives, angry at a world that doesn’t offer perfect security, order, and fairness (as defined by you), demonstrate that principle everyday in your personal views and State-run media….

          • Doug says

            It was a very pointed statement at your reading and comprehension skills, which are seriously lacking. Your pseudo intellectual rhetoric is on point though.

            Last time, where do I mention Obama?

          • wetboy says

            I never mentioned Obama in relation to your posts. It is irrelevant. Particularly since, while I know you would LIKE to defend his policies, you simply can’t whilst maintaining any sort of intellectual credibility.

            Progressives can’t really defend his disastrous record (did you see the latest news from the Obama’s own IRS actuaries? ObamaCare isn’t going to run $2,500 for a family of four as promised, but $20,000/Yr! WooHoo!). No, instead they have to do what all socialist do when their policies fail miserably, look for a capitalist/conservative boogeyman to point to. “Wooo! GreedyMan is gonna get you! Woooo!”

            It works for a while, but eventually even the stupid peasants who voted for “equality for all” get tired of hearing the excuses…like in Cuba & Venezuela. That’s when the Police State comes in….

          • Doug says

            You’re obviously self centered but if I didn’t mention Obama why would you list 50 some aught “points” about him? The answer is your angry and irrational.

          • wetboy says

            That wasn’t my post, dummy. Looks like “reading and comprehension isn’t a strong point for you”. Hahaha. Like most Progressives, you show yourself to be the dumbest fella at the table.

            Putting that aside, the likely reason he posted those points was that you progressives all march in virtual ideological lockstep with Obama and his ilk, so he was no doubt pointing out with his example why people like you should never be listened to seriously. Liberals are fun to watch, but you are dangerous to the nation when put in power. It’s like letting teenage inmates run the asylum.

            Your emotionally-based idealogy simply doesn’t leave room for the serious analytical thinking of what happens 2, 3, or 5 steps down the road when your naive policies are enacted. From taxation policy to National Defense, you have a kindergartner’s level of thinking and the only thing you think is truly hateful are the Conservative adults in the room telling you, “No…you can’t have all that candy. It’s bad for you”…

          • Doug says

            Re-read your post. It’s barely coherent and you are a psychotic who thinks he knows the ideology of someone on the Internet by one post that, isn’t about his ideology.

          • wetboy says

            Everyone else seemed to comprehend my posts just fine. Maybe you should go back to community college and work on finishing up that art history degree. You will fit in just fine with that level of deep thinking…

            Idiotic, obsessed, sad, upset, psychotic….all descriptors YOU gave to folks you never met but feel comfortable giving psychological diagnoses upon. And since you immediately attacked Conservatives and Libertarians in your very post, even a community college dropout can figure out thru simple deduction what side of the political spectrum you inhabit.

            See? We use logic. You use hyperbolic emotionalism. And that’s why you lose every argument. So you liberals have to rely on ad hominem attacks and charges of sexism, racism, homophobia et al. …anything to change the glaring focus on your intellectual impotence…

          • Doug says

            TL:DR

            But I’m sure it said something about democrats, Obama and other assorted nonsensical rhetoric

    • Semper Fido says

      Well, the Libertarian part is right. Libertarians are the single most well read party in American politics.

      • Doug says

        Yes, the homophobic Dr with no political experience is a stooge. But not as much of a stooge as the person who votes for him thinking he has a chance.

        • Cawoonache says

          Homophobe? Is that going to be the DNC/OFA attack point against Dr. Carson? Probably not going to resonate all that effectively with middle class American voters. If that’s the best you can do, you people are in trouble. As for political experience, it is experienced politicians that created the cesspool of corruption Washington D.C. has become. Why would we want more of that?

          • Doug says

            Don’t keep up on current events much do you? You’re right a completely unproven leader is what this country needs. I’m not even a democrat, I just love embarrassing you mouth breathers

          • Cawoonache says

            Not even a Democrat? What, too conservative for you? If you think what you’ve done here is embarrass me, you are delusional.

  2. Disco Obama says

    The right has plenty of protest artists, just open your stupid eyes. We have Sabo, ten times better than any liberal artist out there,

  3. Sam Houston says

    “What is most shocking about Waters’ photos is not their subject matter…”
    University of Colorado at Boulder too Liberal? They are too stoned to give a crap. Just the way Obama and his Prog Masters like it.
