Obama to play the next Joker?

I'm not trying to start any political wars here but here are some stories circulating the internet. Same story two different sources.

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

Yeah, it's kind of funny. I believe it was the new yorker that had a pic of bush as the joker and it was heralded.

Personally, I think it fits...but hey, I'm a weirdo.

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

lol, I saw that on a facebook ad yesterday.

and yeah Rob... I thought the same thing. People could depict Bush with devil horns, and as the joker, calling it 'art' and 'satire', but when it's done to Obama, all of a sudden it's 'mean-spirited, dangerous, racist'.

*sigh*

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

The same paper that discredited the Obama picture also published a photo of Bush with Dracula teeth and they didn't call it "mean spirited". What's even worse is the new record for "word that means racist"-link. For instance, to call Obama a socialist is now racist.

The ignorance of the double standard in this country is ridiculous.

As for the photo it is now my avatar on another forum

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

It's basically at the point that any disagreement with the one means you're racist...and non-agreeing statement made is a racist one.

Oh well, at least we only have 3.5 more years of it.

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

I suddenly come to think of the Mallard Fillmore comic strip where once or twice a week he quotes news stories about Obama and ends it somehow with "You can't say that about Obama, that's racist". It's only funny because the circumstances are true.

Not that we were looking all that good going into the new election but the next few years just look dimmer and dimmer.

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

If racism wasn't such a profitable crutch for black people, it would have disappeared by now from all meaningful circumstances. Sure a small minority of people really are racist down to the core, but mostly its just a buzzword minorities use to generate interest in whatever cause it is they are spewing. It's just the "thing" to do now if you want to be on the news.

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

Yup...these pics were deemed "OK"

Quote:
Artist Drew Friedman submitted this depiction of George Bush, entitled "No Joke," to Vanity Fair in July 2008, shortly after the release of "The Dark Knight," the sixth installment of the Batman series. Friedman told FOXNews.com the analogy was "timely" due to the proximity of the film's release. Some conservatives, however, said the image was disrespectful and went too far. Asked what he thought of the more recent version depicting Obama as the comic villian, Friedman replied, "Great minds think alike."



Quote:
This image, created by artist Alex Ross, appeared on the cover of the Village Voice on Oct. 26, 2004. It accompanied an article by "Nixonland" author Rick Perlstein. The image returned to pop culture last October during an episode of HBO's "True Blood," when it appeared in a scene set at Fangtasia, a vampire bar.



Quote:
Artist Shepard Fairey released this image, "Bush Hell," or "One Hell of a Leader," in 2004. It appeared on the cover of L.A. Weekly on Nov. 5 of that year, drawing the ire of some readers who called it "moronic" and even "not suitable for children." Other readers congratulated the paper for its fearlessness and labeled it "one of the finest political cartoons" ever. Note the satanic symbol on Bush's collar. Fairey would later create President Obama's iconic "Hope" poster.

Re: Obama to play the next Joker?

When its all said and done Republicans don't like it when Republicans get made fun of in the media and Democrats don't like it when Democrats get made fun of.

Shocking, I know.
