    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.

    I find it offensive! Reverse black face of a African American. Disgusting!

    I'm offended that the DUmmies are offended.
    Woe to those who call evil good
    and good evil,
    who put darkness for light
    and light for darkness,
    who put bitter for sweet
    and sweet for bitter.

    Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    and clever in their own sight.

    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.

    "If you bound the arms and legs of gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps, weighed him down with chains, threw him in a pool and he sank, you wouldn't call it a 'failure of swimming'. So, when markets have been weighted down by inept and excessive regulation, why call this a 'failure of capitalism'?"

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