WaPo Overplays the Race Card on Obama Joker Posters

Posted by Dave Blount at August 6, 2009 10:04 AM

The Washington Post confirms what we've already heard from the most pathetic of race-baiting Obamunists — the Obama as Socialist Joker poster craze is racist:

…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…
The Joker's makeup in "Dark Knight" — the latest film in a long franchise that dramatizes fear of the urban world — emphasized the wounded nature of the villain, the sense that he was both a product and source of violence. Although Ledger was white, and the Joker is white, this equation of the wounded and the wounding mirrors basic racial typology in America. Urban blacks — the thinking goes — don't just live in dangerous neighborhoods, they carry that danger with them like a virus.…
The charge of socialism is secondary to the basic message that Obama can't be trusted, not because he is a politician, but because he's black.

Likewise, intelligentsia moonbats can't be trusted not because they're propagandists, but because they are full of BS.

The liberal establishment media has officially jumped the shark.

Critical of the Moonbat Messiah, therefore racist.

On a tip from mega.
