A poster depicting President Barack Obama as Heath Ledger's "Joker" character from "The Dark Knight" has sparked controversy after it appeared on the streets of Los Angeles.continues here

The poster shows the US president with white face paint, dark eye shadow and smudged red lipstick above the caption "socialism", in an apparent attack on the US president's efforts to reform health care and stimulus spending.

It is unknown who created and distributed the image, which some believe has racial overtones because it shows Mr Obama as a black-and-white minstrel in reverse.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson, president of the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable, denounced the image and called on those behind it to reveal themselves. "Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery. has racial overtones because it shows Mr Obama as a black-and-white minstrel in reverse No it shows obama as the cartoon character the joker-AAWR

"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."

A stark visual contrast to Shepard Fairey's popular red, white and blue image of the president-elect featuring the caption "hope", the "socialism" image has appeared as Mr Obama is facing a growing swell of criticism as he attempts to force through his $1 trillion health care programme.

The "socialism" poster has spread virally across the internet, crashing the website that first displayed images of it and rising to the top of Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list. Paper versions also appear to be spreading, with some showing up in Atlanta, Georgia.

Some Right-wing commentators have seized approvingly on the image. Thomas Lifson wrote on the conservative American Thinker website: "It is starting. Open mockery of Barack Obama, as disillusionment sets in with the man, his policies, and the phony image of a race-healing, brilliant, scholarly, middle-of-the-roader."

The liberal tabloid "LA Weekly", which depicted George W. Bush, the former president, as Dracula on its cover in 2004, denounced the Obama-Joker poster as virulently racist. continues here

“A black-and-white minstrel in reverse”, you know it would be funny if it wasn’t so serious, if leftists hadn’t infiltrated every nation and injured normal discourse, if the people still had free speech and truth was valued. Now I have a lot of issues with the election of Mr Obama, primarily I note the tremendous push given his campaign, by the owned media, leftists, liberals and yes, non-white communities, you see groups vote on the basis of self-interest and generally with regard to non-white minorities, this is governed by race. Of course, should no non-white candidate be standing, then the community will vote for the candidate that must advocates their cause, Mr Obama received 96 percent of the black vote and a believed 67 percent of the Hispanic vote. It is perhaps for this reason he endorsed the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, giving no consideration to her rather dubious political past.

The election of Mr Obama was a racial event, quite simply he was propelled into office atop a wave of demographic change, leftist agitation and liberal guilt, yet one must always realise that individuals are defined by group, one can see this with the dropping of the charges against the New Black Panther Party members, individuals charged with voter intimidation in Philadelphia during November's elections, this blatant case of voter intimidation appears to be unworthy of consideration even though one individual wielded a baton ,although should Klan members endeavour to do the same, one can envisage really quite a different outcome indeed. We also see this with his appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, prompting Sen. Mitch McConnell to remark, “Judge Sotomayor is a fine person with an impressive story and a distinguished background. But a judge must be able to check his or her personal or political agenda at the courtroom door and do justice even-handedly, as the judicial oath requires. This is the most fundamental test. It’s a test Judge Sotomayor does not pass.”

Sonia Sotomayor has always supported her own group interest or that of non-whites, even from right back in her university days at Princeton, during her time at university she joined Acción Puertorriqueña, a group that lobbies for the rights of illegal immigrants, she also joined Third World Centre, a group that advocated for and championed the rights of people of colour. So we can see at a glance that Mr Obamas administration and indeed decision making process, is at times governed by out-group thinking, of particular note here, Mr Omamas intervention in the Gates case, the tagging of the arrest of Henry Louis Gates as, Cambridge police acting stupidly, of particular importance. Mr Obama simply went on the defensive, he defended a perceived member of his own group before knowing the full facts and no “beer summit” can alter such publicly noted behaviour. Yet we are told that America takes no note of race that America is a melting pot, yet in truth the pot is melting, because of the white hot anger on all sides, rage that threatens to spill out of control at any moment.
