I love that Obama Joker poster. I guess that makes me a racist. At least, according to the mental eunuchs who claim any satire of Obama is racism. Of course, those people are pathetic hypocrites since they are always disparaging white people. Even if many of them are one. That is a racist thing to do. All white people aren’t alike just as anyone of any race isn’t the same of every member of their race. But in the so called minds of those who bandy about the R word, those are the rules, apparently. Seems kind of racist to me.
Some of the hand wringing that’s still going on over this Joker poster makes me laugh, like this latest one from the Washington Post.
Comparisons to Shepard Fairey’s Obama posters, which rendered the president’s face a boldly contrasted palette of red and blue above the blunt message “hope,” generally tend to favor Fairey’s artistry. The exhausted icon of last year’s political campaign, now falling off bumpers and fading on T-shirts, had both a subtlety the current poster lacks and a simplicity that it desperately needs. Fairey’s image included a clever visual play on red- and blue-state political values (a windmill rendered in red, a tank and dollar sign sketched in blue), but it required only one step of mental grammar: Obama is hope.
The new Obama poster has two basic thrusts. Obama is a socialist, or a crypto-socialist. And Obama is somehow like the Joker, unpredictable and dangerous. But joining these two messages together yields more questions and contradictions than good poster art can sustain. The Joker is violent and dangerous, but a socialist?
Uh, this is a confusing message? Seems rather obvious to me. But this writer doesn’t get that socialism is crazy and dangerous. Justr look at what it has done to countries all over the world. I think Obama supporters are running scared. They know the public is losing support for old evil eyes by the day. And to see him get the same treatment Bush did in a lot less time has to be unnerving, because they were SO SURE he was the savior.
But like I said when he won the election, when the people put you up on that high of a pedestal, there is only one direction you can go. Down.
There is no way anyone could have fulfilled the hype he was getting. Yet he is even worse than I imagined, and I expected him to suck.
Now, with these ham handed attempts to ram their agendas down people’s throats, I suspect a lot of unemployed angry people are going to make the Dems life hell in the next few years. They have no ideas or solutions that work. It’s not going to be pretty.
