Obama “Joker” Socialism Poster Popping up in LA … Demonizing the President … Since When has that been an Issue?


And now for something completely different … Suddenly demonizing the President is off limits when it had been a cottage industry for the past eight years under GWB.

When it is a questionable depiction  of a Republican, it’s called art. When it is is feces smeared on a picture of Christ or a crucifix in urine, it is called art. However, when dare it be a picture of President Barack Obama looking like the Joker, it is considered mean. No double and triple standard here. Then there is the obligatory, it must be racist because it is against Obama.


With the amount of bizarre and over the top “art” that is out there, why would anyone thing that Obama is above it? Maybe the President will have a press conference on this matter and say that someone acted “stupidly”?

A poster of Barack Obama appearing like the Heath Ledger’s character, “The Joker,” from “The Dark Night” Batman movie is turning heads in Los Angeles, CA.

The Obama-Joker poster shows President Obama with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick and also has the word “socialism” printed in bold, dark letters under the image of his face.

Obama as the Joker Bad, Bush as the Joker Good


Vanity Fair; George W. Bush: Comic-Book Villain?

I wonder id they would feel the same if the poster depicted, oh, George W. Bush or Sarah Palin? Wrong to demonize the President? Where were these people for the last 8 years? Hell, I must have missed the part where Earl Ofari Hutchinson spoke up on the ongoing demonization of Sarah Palin and her family. However, I tend to agree with Sundries Shack, The Riddler might have been a better comparison.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

“Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery,” says Hutchinson, “it is mean-spirited and dangerous.”

No body seems to know who is responsible for the Obama Joker posters.

This all plays into the notion that the LEFT must protect Obama at all times and everything dome against him is off limits or racism. It is ok to go personally after Sarah Palin, but oh no, no artist renditions of The One. The people are growing weary.

      To the liberal, Obama represents everything good and honest so to make fun of him in this manner is blasphemy. The liberal thinks Bush, Palin, and any other conservative represent everything bad and evil in the world so making fun of them is the right and moral thing to do. Liberals believe freedom of speech only applies to them. Get out the torches and pitchforks and let them know what you think about their double standards.

      I see no problem whatsoever with that poster. Besides, it’s ALOT less demeaning than what they did to GW making him appear as a chimp all the time. (yeah…let’s see them do THAT to the great Zero and see the backlash it would produce…but would have to be next to a pic of GW that some lib did the same way :>)

      No more wild cherry lollypops for Barry!

      Some people are mystified by the DoughBummer as Joker tie-in, but I think it makes perfect sense. This is our evil AzzClown-in-Chief, f’ing up our country as fast as he can, before the sheeple wake up from their snoozes.

      This poster is gathering momentum around the country, and by far most of the commentary I’ve seen posted have been positive, i.e. anti -0-bama.

      Looks like middle class America is waking up to this fraud, and hopefully it’s not too late.

    6. Scott on August 4th, 2009 1:23 pm

      Question is: where can i find some of these posters to put around where I live?

      Any info greatly appreciated!

    7. buster on August 4th, 2009 2:31 pm

      The pictures would be better off on toilet paper !!!

    8. xoxo on August 4th, 2009 2:48 pm

      lol Scott, I want some of those posters too, so i can hang them around town, everyone I know hates Obama.

    9. martha claire on August 4th, 2009 2:56 pm

      Liberals are soooo arrogant and cruel….

    10. rightknight on August 4th, 2009 5:18 pm

      This Obama guy is going to give the Real Joker
      a bad name.

    11. bardofoc on August 4th, 2009 6:13 pm

      Anyone looking for posters or other merchandise with this image might want to check out this site I just found. Not sure how legit it is, though,

      ((link removed))

      Edit: This is the third site link posted for these t-shirts and mugs, etc with the Obama Joker image. I suggest that if you really want it to create one yourself at Cafepress or Zazzle or search one of those sites. Someone is going to get rich off stupid people willing to pay extra for something they could easily create themselves. (klaasend)

    12. Elmer on August 4th, 2009 8:27 pm

      This has to be one of the cleverest political statements ever. Absolutely brilliant!

    13. St Stephen on August 4th, 2009 10:06 pm

      Political satire has existed in the United States since they were colonies.

      It will not stop and shouldn’t regardless of who the leader may be. It’s part and parcel of what our heroes sacrifice life and limb for. We realize that, as should the liberals.

    14. yoyo muffintop on August 4th, 2009 11:18 pm

      This was done by the Republican Party (which of course SM’s failed to mention) – you would think they would be “above it”.

      These immature antics should be relegated to the internet and private citizens, not carried by official party organs. The fact the Republican Party sees fit to engage in such anklebiting, while having no solutions for the country’s problems (and apparently unprepared for the daunting uphill battle they face in 2010) shows they are content with being the regional party, the Birthers, the ones screaming from the security of the backbench about how to win yet screwed the pooch when they were in the game.

      This to me is parody, not at all like the many documented racist pictures and off color jokes that have been spread through official Republican organs.
      With this coming from the Republican Party, it’s quite telling of how bereft of ideas and imagination there is in todays GOP.

    15. rightknight on August 5th, 2009 1:36 am

      Obowma is demonizing himself more thoroughly
      than any amateur artist can. The People with the
      pitchforks are milling around nervously and vocally
      now. Do the ‘Elite’ non-representatives notice the
      activity? Are the ‘Elite’ considering what type of work
      they would like to be doing for a career in the future?
      Actually, art projects like this can evoke profound
      thought even if the art is not that profound itself.

      Katie, bar the door!

    16. Dolf on August 5th, 2009 5:33 am

      @14, thats what you get with supporters like scott

    17. Scott on August 5th, 2009 6:33 am

      #14 and #16…keep up the looney liberal MSM conspiracy theories that the GOP put out those posters. LOL! Keep up the Bill O’Reilly talking points from two nights ago….

      The GOP has solutions; fact is the liberals won’t listen to any of them. Obama will not listen to any of them.

      Truth hurts…poster is spot ON!

      Keep thinking the GOP won’t win back a lot of seats next election…America is waking up.

      You liberals are such scum of the earth; really below the dirt I scuff of my shoes.

      All you have to know about this arrogant and elitist administration as they labeled the people at the town hall meetings demanding answers as right wing extremists that was manufactured by the GOP…LOL…NICE! These are ordinary everyday Americans worried about where this country is going and the liberals and the administration are in frantic mode….Obama keeps alienating people and let him and the buffoon Robert Gibbs keep sticking their foot in their respective pieholes!

      You really can’t make this stuff up but lunatic liberals do…because they know the tide is turning….

      Yoyo – I hear the INS is looking for you!

    18. SUPER DAVE on August 5th, 2009 8:33 am

      YOYO: this was done in LA. high population of afros, mostly democrat i would imagine. i seriously doubt that the republicans would stoop to democratic standards.
      he should be glad that his wife and children weren’t targeted like Sarah Palin’s family. of course obama’s thug party loves to be cowardly back jumpers. thugs never attack from the front always from the democratic back.

    19. tuyvnsurvivor on August 5th, 2009 8:45 am

      I think Obama could be captioned very well just using depections of his hands. Notice that he uses his sweet gesturing hands in a most articulative manner. During his bigger grifter moments. One day (if not already) he will be easily depected by his hand signals of sociolisum.

    20. Jack Hammer on August 5th, 2009 8:47 am

      Scott is a class act isn’t he?

    21. St Stephen on August 5th, 2009 8:52 am


      Alas poor yoyo, in a realm of his/her own, not of this planet.

      Yes, you indeed pick and choose words out of statements and ignore the context of the posts. Actually that is all that you can do since you have been programmed that way.

      I chuckle more at your convoluted posts than at the caricatures of the president(s) represented as the joker on this thread.

      But I guess you cannot help but be a revisionist, after all. The tide, fortunately for the United States, is turning and you will be once again weeping and gnashing your teeth as our country(U.S.A) will get back on the right track come 2012.

      You need to deprogram yourself, yoyo.

    22. St Stephen on August 5th, 2009 8:55 am

      By the way, yo’, it is called POLITICAL satire. I already posted that, but of course you either did not see it or did but your programmed mind decided not to select it as it did not fit your archaic left of liberal agenda.

      You sly revisionist, you!

    23. Dolf on August 5th, 2009 9:08 am


      the solutions of the GOP

      Guess they kinda got lost in the hatefull bs

    24. Scott on August 5th, 2009 10:02 am

      mmmmm…. did you just get off your knees while servicing your boyfriend?

      Yeah, right…what hateful bs? Oh you mean the hateful bs the administration and people like Pelosi and Obama who villify insurance companies, doctors, ordinary citizens who have an opposing viewpoint…you’re a complete g-d idiot!

      Censorship is already underway….democratic congresspeople will not even answer their constitiuents..having elderly people forcefully removed….LOL! THUGS!

      Jack….turn the page….like I care what some liberal dirtbag such as yourself thinks of me. You’re right I have class unlike most liberals. thank you for the compliment….

    25. SUPER DAVE on August 5th, 2009 11:12 am

      jack: i would like to see scott put you in a triangle choke and watch your head turn purple like your boy’s lips.

    26. Michelle Smith on August 5th, 2009 12:25 pm

      ROFLMAO @ YoYo….Really?

    27. SUPER DAVE on August 5th, 2009 12:47 pm

      be easy on little jackie. he’s only in second grade at obama elementary school.

    28. russ on August 5th, 2009 3:35 pm

      let me say this before you read the rest. I am an American who loves freedom above all else up to the point of steeping on someone’s toes… I do not like to be told what to do when I’m not hurting anyone…that being said do you know what the two pics of bush and obama as the joker have in common besides the obvious?

      they are both politicians, liars, and money puppets…

      not saints or saviors…some lie more then others but to think otherwise is naive and foolish… I think obama IS screwing up this country more then any other before him but don’t label me a r.w. loon cause I don’t trust anyone I don’t have my eyeball on

    29. yoyo muffintop on August 5th, 2009 7:40 pm

      #21 – Didn’t quite understand huh? Not surprising.
      I’ll help you out….open up the “W” on your pill case and take those pills.

      You never know St Stephen – It might help you stop calling individuals with learning disabilities “retards” and “deaf and dumb” like you say you do.

      Unfortunately St Stephen, there is too much qrm emanating from you to make any sense of.

      It seems quite apparent that you seem confused by what is posted as you would rather revel in sophomoric name calling.

      #21 & #22 St Stephen – your qrm(and any subsequent prattle and gibberish) shall be duly ignored.

    30. CBB on August 5th, 2009 9:54 pm

      I’m getting very tired of people who feel they don’t have a voice being labeled as an “angry right winged activist’s mob”.

      I wonder what a “fishy” e-mail is? I wonder why the White House wants to be alerted to them and what they plan to do with that information.

      I wonder what the White House called the civil rights movement, and the marches.

      I wonder if they comprehend, in hindsight, that those people felt they didn’t have a voice to right a wrong?

    31. St Stephen on August 5th, 2009 9:58 pm

      #29 YO Yo


      Please do as you promise and duly ignore me.

      Now I do not need to communicate with you at all since you choose to remain incoherent and revisionist with your left of liberal archaic rants.

      Your qrm has gotten not only faint but filtered out completely as you join the ranks of the unintelligible with your pick and choose dissection of reading posts.

      I plan to be commenting on this board a long, long time and one less discontent as yourself is fine with me. Thank you.

      Adios, au revoir, sayonara and toodle-doo!

    32. St Stephen on August 5th, 2009 10:18 pm

      29 YO yo

      One more nugget before I bid you a fond adieu(or is that fondue?)

      Whatever you choose to revise from my posts, YOU seem to be the one who revels in using those names. I told SM I would not use the terms on this board yet you have bandied the terms about like throwing candy from a float on the Macy’s parade. You likey?

      Also, I have not denigrated, ever, and in fact supported, the Special Olympics, unlike our President Barack Obama while engaging in a friendly game of bowling.

      Oops, time for you to revise another post. Make sure that you do not mention President Obama’s mocking of the Special Olympics. I got an idea! Say I did it! Yeah, that’ll work. QRM, right?

    33. Christina on August 5th, 2009 10:54 pm

      More people are becoming more aware of what Obama is really all about. I would love to purchase one of these posters.

    34. Michelle Smith on August 6th, 2009 12:21 pm

      #29 YoYo Pontificates “It seems quite apparent that you seem confused by what is posted as you would rather revel in sophomoric name calling.”

      Are you serious? And you don’t resort to sophomoric name calling? PLEASE! I find that laughable. In fact, I find most everything you post laughable which is why I choose to ignore most of what you spew forth.

    35. Michelle Smith on August 6th, 2009 12:23 pm

      @#33 Christina

      Most people are aware but there are still some like YoYo & caesu & jack hammer and a few other tools that will never get it.

    36. allrise on August 7th, 2009 7:31 am

      They took the new Obama “Joker” poster into AllRise.com community court. Join and share your opinion http://bit.ly/obama01

    37. Elmer on August 8th, 2009 10:53 am

      Re #33: Actually, I’m one of the posters who is becoming more aware; however, I’m not for sale…

    38. BUN on August 8th, 2009 11:11 am

      #23 Dolf…why you just give it a rest. You are on every blog site spitting your hatred, enough of you!!

    39. Angel Carter on September 29th, 2009 9:44 am

      y so much hate, wake up america and pull together, we need each other, soon u will see how much!
