    WHO'S BEHIND DRAMATIC OBAMA JOKER POSTER?: Is it free speech or something straight up sinister?

    *And it don't stop. Has the circus that is the Obama Haters added another act, so to speak? Some supposed "artist" is going around LA plastering posters of the first black prez made to look like Heath Ledger's Joker in the "The Dark Knight." Not only that, but the word "socialism" is prominently situated under the image.
    The unknown person or persons created the poster by combining the cover photo of Mr. Obama from the October 2006 issue of Time Magazine, with the face makeup from the Joker.
    According to reports, the posters have been spotted in different parts of Los Angeles on Monday. Most people who have spotted them claim they were located near on-ramps and underpasses in both LA and Hollywood. Another report says they've also been seen in the Atlanta area.
    Meanwhile, LA activist and EUR columnist, Earl Ofari Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the posters to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.
    "Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery," says Hutchinson, "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."
    To no one's surprise, the graphic has also gone viral online. It initially crashed the website of conservative radio host Tammy Bruce, where it was first posted over the weekend. It has also risen to the top of Google's "Today's Hot Trends" list.

    Why dangerous? A lot of what Hutchinson says is true, but the "danger" is really, really well hidden.

    [​IMG]By Patrick J. Buchanan

    Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America . Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:

    First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

    Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ' 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

    We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude???

    Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving' white kids.? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America ? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

    Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

    As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

    Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

    We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena . And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

    Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago.
    We are a Christian Nation even if Mr. Obama says we are not.
    This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

    I want tee shirts and posters!! same picture. caption above, "impeach the JOKER!" caption under picture, "SOCIALISM is not the change I want!"

    I am serious !!! I will pay a reasonable wholesale price. Since no one wants to come forward with regard to making the posters, I will accept the heat for possible copy right infringement.
