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.
