A new version of the Obama Joker poster featuring Michelle Obama has now started to appear around the country. This one was photgraphed on the Boston subway system.
How long before the media claim that this expression of the first amendment is “racist” despite the fact that George W. Bush was also portrayed as the Joker as well as a blood-sucking vampire?
For hundreds of years, satirical lampooning and cartoon characatures have been part of American political culture, yet all of a sudden the corporate media claims that it is a thought crime to diminish the God-like status of Obama, anointed upon him by the establishment despite polls showing his popular approval rating is sinking faster than Bush, while also implying that simply posting flyers in public is a criminal offense – despite the fact that Barack Obama himself encouraged his supporters to do the same thing – even blocking out stop signs in the process – during his campaign.
