Out Comes the Race Card to Counter Obama the Socialist Joker Mania

Moonbats don’t much like the Obama the Socialist Joker craze. Listen to them screech at LA Weekly:

A new poster depicting President Obama as a version of Heath Ledger’s Joker character in The Dark Knight has appeared in Los Angeles, according to rightwing sources. … 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.

A noose? Oh, I get it: the posters fail to flatter The One; therefore they must be racist.

KTLA reports:

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

That’s because Obama really is a socialist, and his smash-and-grab looter policies make it obvious that comparisons with a demented criminal are apt. Pictures like these attacking W and Laura Bush weren’t called mean-spirited and dangerous, as McQ pointed out earlier — just irrelevant and weird, because they had no validity, especially considering the striking resemblance between Bush and the Joker’s nemesis Batman in The Dark Knight:
