It’s a poster that’s created controversy across the country.
It portrayed President Barack Obama as the Joker from “The Dark Knight” movie with the word ‘socialism’ plastered underneath.
(ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW)
The image was created by a student at UIC. But he had no idea his art was being used to make a political statement.
Artist Firas Alkhateeb wanted to make one thing clear from the very beginning. He did make Barack Obama look like the Joker in the image. But he did not add the caption that says ‘socialism.’ Someone else did that. Regardless, he now finds himself in the center of a firestorm.
