Yesterday I posted up the Obama Joker Poster on my blog. Well, within a few hours one of my lefty commenters stated the following:
The only thing missing is the noose. I never took you to be a racist, BoBo. I guess I was wrong?
Hmm…he must have read the L.A. Weekly just before he came to my blog – here’s what they said about the poster:
The poster, which bears a very superficial resemblance to Shepard Fairey’s famous Obama Hope illustration, has been pasted on freeway supports and other public surfaces. It has a bit of everything to appeal to the drunk tank of California conservatism: Obama is in white face, his mouth (like Ledger’s Joker’s) has been grotesquely slit wide open and the word “Socialism” appears below his face. The only thing missing is a noose.
Emphasis is mine. Seems like the loonies are out in full force on this one. How the hell is that poster even remotely racist? Why is this image from Vanity Fair last year acceptable
- but an Obama dissenter doing it becomes racist? Same old double standards. H/T to John Kaduk of The Right Wing for sending me a link to this – it touches on this very subject – great cartoon.
So, not only do we have Vanity Fair with that picture up there – the very same L.A. Weekly up there is the same one that had a cover depicting Bush as Dracula.
And then there were the BusHitler Posters -
So – because we do the same kinda shit to a “black” President that has been done to every freakin’ President in modern history – now we’re racists? Is it necessary to point out that Obama is not actually “black”? He’s biracial – a mulatto to be more correct. You guys on the left are morons and no one is buying your shit any longer.
Here’s what I see when I look at that Obama Joker Socialist poster – The fact the artist puts him in Joker makeup is symbolism for Obama’s complete lack of concern over other people’s money. It’s all about power. This is exactly what Socialism is. If you remember from Dark Knight – the joker was stealing everybody’s money. Once he amassed a whole shitload of it – he burned it all. It was never about the money – it was always about the power. Putting Teh Obamessiah in Joker makeup is very appropriate, it is satire, and it most definitely is not racist. This is a Freedom of Speech issue – and the only one’s who ever seem to be attempting to stifle that freedom are you idiots on the left. You make every attempt to shut down those who disagree with you. Well – forget it – the silent majority is no longer silent – and you can thank that idiot Obama and his fascist policies for that.
You guys played that “you’re a racist” card one too many times – get the fuck over it already!
