I would say that poster is tamed compared to the posters we will see of him in the future if the economy continues to worsen.

I think it's definitely meant to have racist overtones.

en.wikipedia.org...

An archetype caricature used to lampoon a member of another race.

So I question who is responsible for it? Who benefits by aggravating racial tensions? The PTB.

Besides, our problem now isn't socialism - it's fascism. When corporations and Government merge.

cryptogon.com...

But socialism is much handier for inflaming the prejudices and passions of middle class.

I knew race would come up. FYI Vanity Fair did a portrait of Bush as the joker as well.



Man the racist argument is so old and played out.

Someone did a 'joker' poster about Bush43 a while back as well.
See it here

Whatever.

I have been searching for a thread about the Bush/Joker poster because i'm sure liberals will be on there defending Bush and calling Vanity Fair racists, right?

The liberals are already starting to go nuts about this in the MSM. I'd expect Chris Mathews will spend a week convincing us its a racist far right attack.

www.ktla.com...

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

Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.

"Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says Hutchinson, "it is mean-spirited and dangerous."

"We have issued a public challenge to the person or group that put up the poster to come forth and publicly tell why they have used this offensive depiction to ridicule President Obama."

Well if you knew it would come up maybe that's because you "get" that the image is supposed to be racist.

The question is - Who benefits?

I cannot speak for anyone else but myself, and posting the picture here had nothing to do with race to me.

I have never cared for any President we have ever had, with exception to J.F.K. due to the fact that I know they are puppets controlled by the Bilderberg Group, or some other assinine group, when the President should be an uncontrolled representative of the people who actually elected him.

So you agree that the Bush/Joker image is racist as well?

It's a very cynical exploitation of the race issue

The fact Obama is 'brown' has been used in several ways within that poster

which in turn is merely part of a vicious campaign to discredit and ridicule him.


I'm pretty certain of the nationality of those who orchestrated the poster campaign AND the Orly Taitz circus.

And personally, I do not believe they're American

or British

or Australian

or European

or South American

or Central American

or Pacific Islanders

or Catholic

or Muslim

or Hindu

or Budhist

or Protestant

or Pagan

What is Ozcams razor? I've seen people use it in reference to some kind of measure.

I guess I could google it.



the principle that "entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily."


What does that mean? Be nice please.

The Joker was an Anarchist Not a socialist...

Whoever created the poster needs to do more research...

Why do "intelligent" people think that criticizing BHO makes that person a racist??


So I suppose our Leader wants us to do nothing but praise his every effort and there by not receive bad-press...... I'm thinking of a word that is similar to socialism... oh yeah... communism!

Intelligent people don't.

But associating the criticism with racism marginalizes the dissent, which is the real objective.

So again, who benefits?

Since I started the thread, I wasn't sure if that allowed me to post this little news topic but since it was related to the leader, can someone explain why BHO signed this doc on his first day in office? Again, I would like to say that I am open to those ideas even if they differ from my own and I will not act like a child when responding.

Link for document reference.

First day

It is the Principle of Occam's Razor.

Paraphrasing, it means that for any given issue or problem the simplest solution is the most likely one.



The very last "principle" people on a conspiracy website such as this seem to want to pay attention to ...

He new it would come up because anyone who has anything negative to say about Obama is labeled a racist.

Sorry.

I'll tell you who benefits. Not Obama.

The people that think ''socialism'' is rising are the people in the middle. The fat part of the Bell Curve doesn't want to give away their money to slobs on the low end. When they realize that Obama's campaign promises were lies, they'll vote him out.

The wealthy people who won't miss a little money will always give away some money simply to keep the lower slobs on a chain, but the middle class people are the ones that will feel the pinch of a little bit here a little bit there. The middle class is the class that is getting worked up over what they think is Obama's ''too socialist'' agenda. It is easy for them to understand. They all understand how socialism leads to communism and they don't want that. The middle class believes in work and success. They believe they are differentiated from the lower class because of hard work. They don't want to share with lower class bums.

If I was a billionaire I'd buy the lower class crack until they died. I'd pay for all your baby mama abortions also. I'd keep you in prison or dumb and drugged until you died and left my world.

However, the middle class can't afford to destroy the lower class. The middle class is trying to climb up on the backs of the lower class. The upper class will climb middle class backs as well, so they don't mind shoving both middle and lower classes down the ladder.
