Foxnews.com headline story: "Obama Joker Poster in U.S. Contest?"

article: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/14/florida-police-qu...

I don't what the hell is going on but this is the 2nd time this week a foxnews.com headline story has mentioned infowars.com and quoted Kurt Nimmo (see http://www.dailypaul.com/node/102785). Maybe pigs WILL start flying soon.

Did you ever think...

that perhaps the perception of Obama was the joke?

and...

to be clear, this isn't about Obama being a savior. It's about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

To say it another way, Ayn Rand is great but so is quantum mechanics. Money is about energy and the real wealthy people care more about enlightenment than controlling people.

Huh?

small caveat

"Bob Kane's original comic book Joker is a master criminal and a bizarre psychopath. Obama is not necessarily a psychopath -- that is to say a ruthless hands-on serial killer -- but by the standard of his office he is a master criminal, or rather a front man for a cartel of master criminals," wrote Kurt Nimmo.

Barrio is probably not a psychopath, and almost certainly not a sociopath, and absolutely not a "hands-on" serial killer, but we can still safely conclude that he is a narcissistic mass murderer. At least judging from his mounting body counts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan so far.

It's considered racist

The minstrel was a white man with a black-face with red lips whose thickness was exaggerated and eyes made extra wide.

the obama-as-joker is black man with a white-face with red lips whose thickness was exaggerated and eyes made extra wide.

huge difference, right?

the subtle black man acting white meme also stirs racial undertones.

the only thing is accomplishes is thumbing our noses at the left and to conjure up bad racial memories of the past.

this is how they get activists to unwittingly spin their wheels in a direction they don't want to go.

Joker = Racist

You'd need a master's degree in the Sociology of Minorities from an Ivy League school or a whole lot of repressed white guilt in order to see racism in Obama-as-the-Joker.

I like it! It knocks the hero of the uppity, racist white liberals who support Obama down a couple notches.

Oh yea, just like the Bush

Oh yea, just like the Bush Joker was racist?

Get a clue.

that's what i'm talking about

do you also believe it is okay to use the n-word on black people because they call eachother that?

you are clueless!

n word

I call white people the "n" word just to see their reaction.

What is clueless...

is seeing this as racist at all.

Most people see it as putting a cartoon character on an individual's face.

You see it as white paint on a black man.

Reality check here....

well, duh!

what else do you think they were going for?

see: http://arnoskatas.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/the-obama-dece...

Yea in the words of KRS1

Yea in the words of KRS1 "They put a black face on the New World Order" - KRS1 is an African American, what a "racist" observation he made.

Sorry...

I had realized that you were kinda slow because of your first post.

I just had not realized how slow.

In pointing out that the Obama/Joker poster is racist, you accomplishing one thing and one thing only... you are showing that you are racist.

Most people don't live in the 1920's anymore, or use the social values of that time. Most will see this as it is... a cartoon character mixed with a personality.

They don't see it as a black and white issue.. if they did, it would be because they think there is an issue in the first place. Which means they think that black and white people are somehow different because of thier skin color.

Hope that helps you, although I doubt it.

~Live life to its fullest, with an open heart, open arms and most important... an open mind~

oh i see

it is me who is the racist. that's it. because everyone knows only racists are capable of pointing out obscenities.

people who don't have the observation skills, foresight, or street knowledge are perfectly fine to be offensive, so long as they remain willfully oblivious to what causes others to get offended.

problem solved. everybody can go home now. go back to sleep. everything is fine. nothing to see here folks. keep watching tv.

It's not racist, period. If

It's not racist, period. If anyone makes a racial interpretation out of it, that interpretation is incorrect.

the people plastering the images

the people plastering the images all over are completely innocent. i agree. obviously, they aren't intending to create more racial division.

but the minority interpretation is precisely what should be of concern to us for that reason.

Oh please!

The minority interpretation is way too often falacious indignation accompanied by the race card. Buck up and grow a spine. This is about identifying a criminal with a criminal...unless you believe all criminals have a black...uh white...uh arabic face.

I am reminded of the Bush poster that had him flying, knee bent, one arm extended, tearing his shirt off exposing a "W" on his chest in a decidedly Superman fashion and I didn't see any superheroes running around playing the "immortal" card.

Come off your imperceptibly high horse. It ain't about race...it's about criminality.

you're totally oblivious

you're totally oblivious to the concept of psychological warfare, and subliminal messaging.

this ain't about race. this is about the unwitting personification of a racist movement co-opted by the same string-pullers who successfully sleighed the tea-party dragons.

Ahhh yes

the personification of unintended consequesces. I certainly get that and I'm hardly oblivious to any of it. However, I guarantee you that ANYTHING done in opposition to BO will be twisted to satisfy the race card players.

Do you think a simple picture of him...sans-makeup...accompanied by the word fascist or socialist would somehow pass muster with these people (the spinmeisters)? Do you think that a more "acceptable" form of protest...acceptable to those that want to play the race-card with impunity?

Screw that. You can't battle by tying your own hands behind your back. Those that oppose Obama now will not suddenly accept him because of righteous indignation over the poster, but those on the fence, or those who are unaware who see infowars.com may gain some curiosity over the poster and be led to the Obama Deception or in some other direction that isn't in lock-step with the Joker. Education is what matters here and anything that assaults the senses and causes even a small percentage of the population to truly examine the issues may be better than "the high road".

no

i understand the spinmeisters would have you believe that socialism is another word for the n-word. that is their job. divide and conquer. that's why i bring this up.

the image is probably psyops. that is why their is no author. even before the infowars poster drive, there was a fake internet effort trumpeted up to create the illusion of a genuine grassroots movement -- all based on 4 measly posters "somewhere in LA." it was a PR hoax then, and it is a PR hoax now.

crying foul over this poster will fall on deaf ears, because the right has already been setup to believe that the left is merely playing the race card again. we will accuse them of double-standards and hypocrisy. after all, there was a bush-as-joker image that came first, right?

meanwhile, many on the left who have picked up on the racial undertones of the image may never adequately explain why they feel negatively toward it. consciously or subconsciously, it will wedge our efforts and have the complete opposite effect of everything we are trying to accomplish.

it has long been understood that the best strategy to kill the message of liberty is to portray anybody that touches it as a bunch of white angry racists. this poster drive puts us well on our way, whether you like it or not.

so it's perfect.

I see your point, but it may

I see your point, but it may also backfire on them if this is a psyop.

I wonder if...

many black clowns wear whiteface? Anyone here go to clown college?

of course they are reporting it

it's a strawman op designed to give the impression that the end the fed movement is just a bunch of conspiratorial racist nutters.

well...

Meanwhile, contrary to local media reports stating that residents are outraged over the prospect of Obama as the Joker, a central Florida news poll indicates many Floridians support the right to criticize and even parody the president. A screen capture of the poll results follows.

of course people support that

but that's the point. the obama-as-joker picture passes the main filters because at a glance it's just obama with a joker painted on. what is the harm in that?

but i'll tell you what the difference is.

from 2000-2008 bush was portrayed as a chimpanzee.

some people say that this means its open season to portray obama as a chmpanzee, too.

but what do you think?

it's not a double-standard. when bush was portrayed as a monkey it was because he was dumb. obama is being portrayed as a monkey because of the color of his skin. or at least that is obviously how it would be perceived.

snowstorm in hell lol

perhaps next we will see Dick Cheney on Alex Jones tv show?

I didn't read the Fox News

I didn't read the Fox News article, but it is quite interesting that they are reporting on it. You know how bad news is better than no news? Somebody high up in Fox might want to give the clown stuff more promotion, maybe so that more people do it. Even if they are criticizing what infowars is doing it still will have the result of spreading that contest to others who have not yet seen it. My guess is that Fox wants to spread the news of this contest, even if they are critical of it.

...

they weren't even critical of it actually

the article mentioned that Alex Jones was discouraging people from posting on private/federal property and included a quote from Kurt Nimmo as to the true motivation for posting the images (non-racial).

Who Cares?

At least they’re doing something, all this concern about the image of “the movement” is bobo groupthink.

If you want to post an Obama Joker that says “infowars”, so what?
If you want to post an Obama Joker that says “socialism”, so what?
If you want to post an Obama Joker that says “fascism”, so what?

I’m going to post some that say “dog poo”.

I don’t really like Jones either, but I appreciate what he has done, and also cringe at some of the things he’s done, but so what? At least he’s doing something.

Has anyone read “The Starfish and the Spider”?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Starfish_and_the_Spider

“It sounds like the opening line to a bad joke: What do the Apache Indians, Craigslist, Skype, and Al Qaeda have in common? The answer goes to the heart of a rewardingly simple new book: They're all decentralized organizations that have bedeviled the established hierarchy hell-bent on crushing them.
The Starfish and the Spider is about the open-source revolution, a trend that authors Ori Brafman and Rod A. Beckstrom demonstrate is simultaneously dismantling many established industries while harnessing the creativity of the masses to generate new ones. (The title refers to the authors' metaphor that a starfish and a spider appear to be structured similarly, but if you crush a spider's head, it dies. Cut a starfish in half, and you'll end up with two.) Open source has spread far beyond its recent successes with file sharing and software. You can now find cooperatively developed art, literature, even religion.
What Brafman and Beckstrom attempt to add to the discussion is a sense of how you can harness the power of leaderless, decentralized movements. Their effort has mixed results. The authors do an excellent job of illustrating how cooperative networks--such as the Apaches prior to the early 1900s, or Al Qaeda today--benefit from operating without a central hierarchy. But they can't exactly explain how you can do it. Ironically, the best they can do is explain how to interrupt or redirect a starfish network when it's chewing away at profits. The U.S. government finally bested the Apaches, for instance, when it provided its leaders with cattle, a form of wealth that reshaped the amorphous, nomadic tribes into easily manageable hierarchies.
Wealth, it turns out, is the elephant in the room. As the authors put it, "The moment you introduce property rights into the equation [be they intellectual, physical, or otherwise], everything changes: The starfish organization turns into a spider." As a consolation, they make a case for the viability of hybrid entities. Think eBay or Intuit --firms that channel customers' and employees' bottom-up efforts into hierarchical businesses. They may be the best one can hope for. Brafman and Beckstrom make this much clear: If you're the head of a spider, look out for the starfish.”
