The NEA: National Endorser for the Administration

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has begun a nationwide campaign to encourage artists to create works that are supportive of the current Administration’s progressive initiatives.

While some find it disturbing that a taxpayer-funded arts institution is being employed to further the specific policy agenda of the White House, we here at Planet Moron believe it is perfectly appropriate to use a public institution to venerate Dear Leader given that he is the very embodiment of the people. 

Sure, you could argue that the NEA was established for the purpose of “supporting excellence in the arts, both new and established; bringing the arts to all Americans; and providing leadership in arts education,” but seeing as it is the single largest provider of funding to artists, that’s really not in your best interest now is it?

To that end, we offer up some of our own art in support of the President:.

This piece is meant to illustrate humanity's enduring struggle against the dualities of empiricism and abstract rationalism within the framework of perceived knowledge.  Also, that John Boehner is the devil.

John Beelzebub

The work below demonstrates the tension that exists between existential notions of expression and the dialectic of tolerance while at the same time showering Rush Limbaugh in the blood of those innocents he has all but condemned to death due to his opposition to Obama's health care reform.

Rush Blood

The piece that follows seeks to synthesize an Andy Warhol aesthetic together with the universal message that we should all live in peace, respect one another, and support the public option as outlined in Title II, Subtitle B of House Resolution 3200.

Stand With Obama!

True art allows the viewer to experience the world through another’s eyes.  This piece allows you to experience the world through Chris Matthews' eyes:

Remember it is incumbent upon all of us to support this latest initiative. As an NEA official said on a conference call to artists who depend on the NEA for their livelihood:

“This is just the beginning. This is the first telephone call of a brand new conversation. We are just now learning how to really bring this community together to speak with the government. What that looks like legally?…bare with us as we learn the language so that we can speak to each other safely… “ 

See, they’re all about bringing the artistic community together with the government to establish a unified message in an attempt to circumvent the law.

And isn’t that what art is all about?
