View Full Version : Obama The Joker Enraging The Left

An poster showing Barack Obama as the Joker has stirred up his supporters.

The striking poster from an unknown source has been pasted up in subways and other public spaces across the US.

Writing in the newspaper LA Weekly, politics reporter Steven Mikulan said: It has a bit of everything to appeal to the drunk tank of California conservatism.

The only thing missing is a noose.

I dont see the race angle as much as the race-baiters would like to use it.

The Guardian tries its best to invoke race:

The Joker poster is mean-spirited, sure, as plenty of satirical images are, but is it dangerous? If it is, it comes down to race. As with the New York Post cartoon that conflated an Obama initiative and the shooting of a rogue ape, its a moot point whether the intention was bigoted: the simple fact of publishing an image of a black president with his face covered in white greasepaint but for the eyes and a red slash of a mouth cant help but evoke a minstrel aesthetic, even if its in reverse. An argument could be made that the inflammatory potential of such imagery is likely to outweigh any potential satirical value.

Now if you really want to piss off the moonbats:
