#283. Barack Obama Depicted as The Joker

Ceasar Romero. Jack Nicholson. Mark Hamill. Heath Ledger. And now, Barack Hussein Obama. What do these five men have in common? They have all played the Joker, the sadistic clown that is Batman’s arch-nemesis and one of the more sinister antagonists in contemporary literature.

Now, it would be fair to say that all of the aforementioned people weren’t fully aware of the character they were portraying, but they have left an indelible on the general public in how the Joker will forever be viewed.

Barack Obama was the first Black person to portray the Joker, and he has done so with gusto and disquieting brilliance. Merely digitally donning the High Prince of Evils makeup, Barack Obama has helped eradicate the iconic images of Heath Ledger’s imaginative depiction of the Joker in the 2008 film, The Dark Knight.

Now, when people think of the DC comic book villain and Batman’s age-old foe, they think of Barack Obama and the Joker posters that litter cyber-space, major cities and college campuses.

Already we have discussed how comic books dealt with the Barack Obama’s inauguration, which many people believe to be the greatest event in human history. Black people find it unsettling that every comic book cover, instead of just Spider-Man #513 and a few others, have not made the first Black president a regular character in EVERY comic book.

Obama, who received 96 percent of the Black vote nationally in the 2008 election, currently enjoys a 97 percent approval rating from Black people:

The President earns approval from 41% of white voters, 97% of black voters, and 58% of all other voters.

With the majority of the nation that isn’t categorized as a Black person believing that President Obama has already failed, one begins to understand the reality that criticism of Mein Obama is strictly not allowed in the vicinity of Black people. Black people consider Obama – like comic book illustrator Alex Ross’ infamous drawing – a real-life Superman, incapable of doing anything bad.

He is a God among mortals and for anyone to dare paint him in “white-face”, even if it is in the familiar makeup of the Joker, is a great sin. Mocking the president is not allowed, especially if he is Black and more so if he is Barack Obama.

Criticism of Obama is not allowed and Black people have been highly offended that anyone could question his decision making abilities and worse, compare him to the diabolical Joker. In fact, merely disagreeing with Mein Obama is grounds for being sent to Room 101; imagine what the punishment will be for the person who came up with the idea of the “Obama Joker” poster:

"So why the anonymity? Perhaps because the poster is ultimately a racially charged image. By using the "urban" makeup of the Heath Ledger Joker, instead of the urbane makeup of the Jack Nicholson character, the poster connects Obama to something many of his detractors fear but can't openly discuss. He is black and he is identified with the inner city, a source of political instability in the 1960s and '70s, and a lingering bogeyman in political consciousness despite falling crime rates.”

Despite falling crime rates? This above comment was written by a disingenuous white liberal who is obviously incapable of understanding crime in America and the preponderance of which it is committed by Black people.

One thing Black people don’t mind, especially if they live in Obama’s adopted hometown of Chicago, is killing other Black people.

A poll conducted by CNN came up with the surprising statistic that more people view Obama as a failure at this point in his presidency than they did George W. Bush (and this latest poll had an admitted over-sampling of Black people, which means his numbers are even worse, since 97 percent of Black people worship Obama like a deity).

Black people will view any criticism of Obama as racist and will willingly deploy that smear tactic to disengage from any debate in which they can’t win:

“Let's take the accusation of racism. I believe that the president's race means that there is a need for cultural sensitivity in how people talk about and depict him. And there is no doubt that some other cartoons and pictures have been offensive or highly questionable.
However, there is also a need to avoid being overly sensitive at every single joke or piece of satire that comes Obama's way, particularly those that are in contrast to one's own beliefs about the president. Is it simply too easy to call something anti-Obama "racist" just because one doesn't agree with it?”

Stuff Black People Don’t Like will always include Barack Obama depicted as the Joker poster, for it falls into the category of criticism of Mein Obama and also, disingenuous white liberals find it appealing to the most base, crass element of society: white people.

Barack Obama – to Black people – is not the Joker, but Clark Kent, Superman and the Black Panther rolled into one; a charitable, loving and erudite - not to mention Super-human -representative of their people.

With these Barack Obama-Joker images, Black people are worried that white people might finally realize the “that’s racist” smear is fully without merit. And the Damoclean Sword of racism that hangs over all white people's head potentially being removed for good, makes the Obama - Joker poster yet another inclusion in Stuff Black People Don't Like lore.

The POTUS has many resources at his disposal. He also represents the interests of 261,000,000 non-blacks in the USA. Regretably among his resources there will never be a 'RACE CARD'. The 'RACE CARD' was a Pre-Obama America anomoly and should quickly be traded in for the new and improved 'FREE SH*T CARD' that the government is now issuing.

Whould 97% of the black population vote for a hispanic presidential candidate. There is almost twice as many hispanics as blacks in the US. I'm gonna go ahead and step out on a limb here and assume no. And in the words of blacks I'm also gonna say... That be raysis ya'll. NOTE: I've never heard a hispanic try to use the 'RACE CARD'.

Then you've probably never heard of La Raza either.

Every racial group but whites actively promote their own self interests. Only whites are supposed to play the color-blind suckers in this rigged game.

Nor an asian...they have too much self-respect.....

'Hispanic' isn't a race. Is La Raza like LULAC? 45% of hispanics voted republican in the 2004 presidential election. 33% in 2008. I've never read anything about asian voting habits. The Asian community is a burden to no one. The point is that no race/group is as 'racist' as blacks are.

Democrats buy votes with 'social programs'. To make it worse they buy these votes with other people's money. That's a double ethics violation. The socialism of europe will never work here in America. Europe doesn't have the blacks that burden America culturally and finacially.

I am pleased to inform you that Europe does have blacks from Africa, and they make an honest living selling pirated music CDs (Mr. Geffen please take note) and sunglasses on the beach.

First of all they didn't say that 96% of black people voted for Obama - they said 96% of black people that voted, voted for Obama.

Secondly most of Obama's critics, especially those that showed up at the 9/12 protests, are indeed racist (I'm a white male from the south and I know a thing or two about race relations down there).

Thirdly, anyone who criticizes black people for supporting a black president is just plain ingnorant and should be sterilized.

Finally, demographically black people (and minorities in general) are less well off than white people. So then isn't it only natural for them to vote for the more liberal of the two candidates?

I still cannot believe that some people are convinced Obama is a Socialist. I wish he was, but he is not. People are idiotic.

If he's not a socialist then why is he spending like one.
