Obama 'Joker' Poster Causing a Stir in L.A.


Obama 'Joker' Poster Causing a Stir in L.A.

LOS ANGELES -- A poster showing President Barack Obama as Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight" is creating a stir on the streets of Los Angeles where the image began appearing over the weekend.

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.

It's unclear who created the image and who is posting it across the city. No one has taken credit so far.

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

Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

24. The Joker definitely was not a socialist.
I'm offended by this poster - as an Obama supporter, and as a Heath Ledger/Joker fan.


Be offended all you want moonbat!

3. As much as I hate this thing...
...I'm afraid the artist is protected by the 1st Amendment.

Unless you could prove that the Joker's "smile" can be interpreted as a bodily threat against the President, which actually doesn't seem too hard to do.


Funny, most DUmmies had fun with BusHitler's pics.:rolleyes:

I have checked the DUmp for two days waiting from someone to post this very article. After two days, they finally saw it and one DUmmie admiting they didn't even know what it meant! :D

Too. Friggin. Funny.

Here's a DUer's review of "The Dark Knight". He goes on about how Batman is an evil and narcissistic authoritarian ultra-rich imposing his own idea of justice on Gotham, and how the Joker is the true hero. :rolleyes:

Funny-where was the outcry when Vanity Fair did the same to George Bush, and being Vanity Fair it got much broader exposure.

That would require them to actually have standards, instead of running off emotion 24/7. Any moles to post the W Joker poster, just to check the reaction? :D

Between the Joker and these, we could do some serious wallpapering.

Their favourite was "The Secret Service make me Nervous".,.which is what you get for violating USC Title 18 871.

I seen a major depression come on in the Moonbats; it finally struck home that they're not the oppsition any more and now its their turn to get the barb.

As a cop once told me after his patrol car's tires were slashed ( right after mine were) " pay back is a bitch."

Hey Moonbats! This is just the begining :D

I'm shocked it took four replies for someone to shreik "RACIST!!!"

Straight Story argues against the accusation and is ignored, which is unsurprising.

What did you expect? When were they ever anything but hypocrites? "Do as we say, not as we do (or what other people we like do, which we like)!"

Gee, I wonder what I'll ever do with all of them.
I'm afraid I may have over ordered. :D

They sell sticky backed ink jet and laser printer paper at Staples.
You have to cut them out yourself, but playing with scissors always makes me calm.

yea but if I did that I wouldn't be able to control myself. I can already think of cars and doors and other things I'd want to put those stickers on and I'd just end up in trouble.

As tempting as that sounds, I wouldn't do that either.
After all, I'm not a DUmmy.

It would make a statement on some of the flyers that have been posted downtown though. :)
