Saw this posted on a light pole at the intersection of highways 98 North and 60 West in that hotbed of political activity Bartow, Fla. today.
I guess the sign first been popped up in California in August, at least according to this report.
As a political statement, this is blatantly offensive. Think what you want about the President, but there is no freaking way the Joker is a socialist! That’s just ridiculous.
The Joker is obviously more of an anarchist; possibly a nihilist, in The Big Lebowski sense of the term.
So, in review: Obama as socialist, go for it; just slowly back away and leave the Joker out of it.
By the way, if you want to make the Obama-as-Socialist kind of statement, combine Obama’s picture with this guy. If you don’t know who this guy is, I suggest you stop making political statements that are offensive to the comic book sensibilities in all of us.
