One of my all-time favorite Deeky W. Gashlycrumb posts is this precious gem from 2012, in which he highlighted some of the best in Ron Paul Fanboy Photoshopping. I absolutely adore conservative hero art, and there is no shortage of it during any presidential election.

Conservative hero art is distinct from other conservative photoshopping of "memes" that are in actuality nothing but full-tilt bigotry. It is, instead, the patriotic elevation of the vile politicians whose platform is the legislation of that bigotry.

Shaker jenn_smithson just emailed me this beauty she found posted (unironically) on Facebook:

image of Donald Trump as George Washington with a bald eagle on his arm and a machine gun in his other hand

WOW! That is stunning.

This is one of my favorite pieces of Ted Cruz conservative hero art:

comic book image of Senator Ted Cruz wearing a blue suit an a US flag tie, in the Superman flying position, with his forward hand prominently displaying a gold wedding band, surrounded by comic text reading: Back by popular demand! Senator Ted Cruz: Ted Saves America!

Just kidding. That's an actual page from Ted Cruz's coloring book for children. Which I'm fairly certain was mostly purchased by adults. For themselves.

Anyway! Seen any good conservative hero art this election care of friends or relatives you can't delete from Facebook without causing drama you don't want to deal with?
