Obama Joker Photo Goes Viral

Surely by now you've seen the Obama as Joker posters popping up around LA.

obama-socialism-tshirt.jpg


If you haven't seen pictures of them in the wild, NewsBusters has the images from Tammy Bruce. Tammy's site is dead as a doornail because the NewsBusters site hotlinked the images... Here's one of the images from before her site croaked...

Since I went to all the trouble of recreating the street poster for the graphic above, I figured I'd slap it on a t-shirt, A) to see how long that lasts, and B) to see if anyone would really wear it...

Funny how sensitive the Lefties are about pointed criticism. Keith Olber-Man and Chris Mathews must be ready to explode in outrage.

I don't personally see how anybody with anything even remotely mature critical thinking skills cannot call what Obama and the Democratic Congress is NOT socialism. But that's just me. A major in economics spoiled me for life. I expect to be picked up for questioning any day.

You mean money doesn't magically appear whenever a 'good idea' is promoted in Congress? That it actually comes from the economy instead of from the money tree in the back yard of the White House?

That 2+2 actually equals 4 instead of whatever's politically expedient?

Hmmm. Fancy that...

Adrian -I know you... (Below threshold)
JLawson:

Adrian -

I know you're partisan, I know you're willfully blind to the debt Obama's running up. But we're showing Obama the exact same level of respect that prestigeous rag Vanity Fair showed Bush. You should be glad we're showing it! After all, isn't 'fairness' the most important thing when it comes to political speech from 'the people'?

So it really doesn't look like you've got any cause at all to complain, Adrian. After all - it's already been established that dissent is the highest form of patriotism - so put on your big-boy underwear and deal with it. I don't think you've seen anything yet if the town hall meetings are an indication of what's to come.

(Frankly, though, I AM a bit concerned - what will happen if someone gets the idea to put PELOSI on a 4-sheet like that? Man, that'd be the stuff of nightmares!)

I'm all for letting the wingutia world express themselves in ways such as the above for two reasons:

1. They have the right to and people die for that right.

2. They continue to demonstrate that the current conservative movement is (to quote someone else) barren of ideas and has absolutely nothing to add that will try and dig this country out of the hole the Bush administration put us in.

These folks look like fools, racists, xenophobes, whacked out conspiracy theorists. Bad for them, good for the rest of the country. This is the movement which is home to luminaries and deep political thinkers like Joe The Plumber, Sarah The Quitter, Boss Limbaugh, Mad Glenn Beck (who is actually making Ann Coulter look a tad sane), Dick Armey's army of bug-eyed whipped up tea baggers etc etc etc.

The Conservative nee Republican Party has an approval rating hovering around 10%, the 21%ers own the party and damn I want to defend their right to say whatever the hell they want to say.

JLawson:

When it became appropriate, Adrian.

Obama's a clown - an evil one. Hell, he goes to a whole new level of evil clownness.

Between his lack of economic smarts and domestic smarts, his lack of a clue when dealing with international relations, we're looking at Joker-level management skills.

But one thing strange - did you notice that no matter how many of his henchmen the Joker killed off over the years, he STILL had no problems coming up with the warm bodies (usually moving) to implement his plans? What would drive someone to serve and support someone like the Joker, when only death and destruction was in the offing?

iwogisdead:

. . . the current conservative movement is . . . barren of ideas . . .

As opposed to who? Obama's great idea is to pay for his healthcare boondoggle with all the money we're going to save on avoidable amputations by sending diabetics to nutritionists. That's on top of all that money we're going to save by stopping unneeded tonsillectomies. That's the extent of what he has offered the country on this issue.

Having any old inane idea is not always a good thing. The idiocy from the left reminds me of the crap we'd talk about sitting around the dorm at 3:00 in the morning after drinking too much beer. Most of us grow out of that. The situation can get worse, and that's where we're heading.

SAUD:
"I'm all for letting the wingutia world express themselves in ways such as the above for two reasons:"

Wow, that's an amazing amount of BS for such a small space. You left out the third and most important reason: the MAINSTREAM Democrats have been doing the same or worse for the past eight years. One LA Weekly writer is whining incessantly about the Obama Joker image - and the LA Weekly did a cover a while back with Bush as a vampire, with blood dripping from his fangs. Note, for another example, the Vanity Fair image that JLawson cited.

So, according to you, graffiti posted around LA (and now the blogosphere) is somehow worse than the exact same thing featuring Bush - that was printed in a mainstream left wing publication?

JLawson:

Actually, I think I'd like to revise my #18. Obama ISN'T Joker-level as far as foriegn policy goes.

Joker level would be slipping a nuke onto the planes of FRIENDLY heads of state, timed to go off just before they land.

Joker level would be giving massive amounts of gifts (including gold bars) to unfriendly heads of state - then quietly puncturing the gas tanks and sealing the holes with a compound which would dissolve after about two hours of overwater flight. And there'd be a LOT of holes - enough to drain all the tanks in about ten minutes.

Joker level would be turning loose terrorists into the country, and giving them everything they need to be happy. (You know, C4, M-4s with lots of ammo, cell phones, blasting caps, all the necessities of modern life...) Then invoking 'social justice' to keep the police from doing anything about them. (Would that come under domestic issues, or foriegn? Hard to say...)

Joker level would be mandating drilling wherever good levels of oil could be found, then nuking oil fields in the ME and SA to drive the price of oil up. Only hard currencies accepted, folks - like gold or platinum bars....

So you know, maybe Obama ain't so bad after all...

JLawson:

Don't worry, Saud -

Someday, you'll get it. And you'll understand that all the folks who've told you the crap they have, to form the opinions you've got now, weren't your friends at all - much as you thought they were. They just saw you as an expendable, worthless spear carrier, a source of money and support - and discardable as a used kleenex... if they thought of you at all.

And you're going to be pissed you were so stupid and gullible for so long. It hit me midway through the Reagan years - I'd been a Carter supporter and a Democrat, and watching what happened in the late '70s cured me of the idea that government could manage everything. (What really pissed me off was the arrangements the Dems made with Reagan so he could re-fund the military. Sure, he could boost the military budget - as long as twice that much went into 'social causes'. Did wonders for the deficit, and the debt...)

But each generation has to learn that people in office sometimes see themselves as 'better' than the people who put them there. They're not listening. They think they don't have to.

They're wrong.

One embraces terrorists and madmen, is dedicated to anarchy and the destruction of capitalist society, and sends the population fleeing in horror from his creations.

The other is a fictional character played by the late Heath Ledger.

This might sound odd - but I'm kind of against banning SAUD. Where else is he going to run up against people who will cause him to at least THINK about what he believes?

Hell, I probably would have sounded like him, back in the day. (Maybe not quite so derisive of those who disagree... don't think I'd be so free with the label 'moron' as he is...)

But that he's showing up and being derisive - yet trying hard to explain why WE are wrong with stuff that's manifestly false - makes me think he's starting to be aware that a lot of what he believes simply isn't workable.

And I like to point out, without being obvious, the utter hypocrisy of the denizens of the land of wingnutia. Most of the denizens don't get that.

I prefer my comics free of line drawings of ridiculously muscular manly men running and jumping and pretending to die in their underwear like a bunch of histrionic fruitcakes, it's true. Such comics are aimed at pre-sexualized boys as an emotional catharthis.
