10 Reasons why the Obama-Joker Socialist posters are appropriate


Some people think that this now famous poster is not fair, and that it is mean spirited, and that it doesn’t address the issues, and whatnot. I disagree, so I give you the following reasons why this is an appropriate comparison between the Joker and Obama.

#1. Burning piles of money. Both Barack Obama and the Joker light giant piles of money on fire for no logical reason. The Joker did this in a dramatic scene from the Dark Knight, but Barack’s got him beat.  We’ve thrown away so much money for Cash for Clunkers, so fast, that it makes the Joker’s bonfire look like a Cub Scout camp out. Remember, he keeps bringing up how he inherited a 1.4 Trillion dollar debt? Well whoever replaces him in 3 1/2 years will inherit a 6-8 Trillion debt. We’d probably be better off if Barack just put it in a big pile and burned it, because at least then we wouldn’t have to worry about paying interest to the Chinese. 

#2. Some men just want to watch the world burn.  Remember that scene where Batman was trying to figure out the Joker’s seemingly insane schemes? And then Alfred came along and explained that some people don’t have a rational reason for what they do, they just want the world to burn? Well, most logical people can’t make heads or tails out of any of Barack’s fiscal policies, which seemed designed to do the exact opposite of what he’s promised for them to do. I think he just wants to watch America burn so it can be reborn as a glorious worker’s paradise.

#3 Neither have loyalty to their minions.  The Joker has no problem shooting his own men, or shoving them off of moving cars, or implanting exploding cell phones into them.  Barack will ditch any of his people who get in his way, whether they’re family, friends, mentors, pastors, or associates. Barack tossed his own Grandma under the bus.  Even the Joker thought that was harsh.

#4 The Origin Story.  The Joker told a few different stories about how he got his scar, and the viewer is never told which is the truth. In the end, it doesn’t matter, because the Joker is just the ultimate bad guy. Barack is an ivy-league elitist who plays himself off as some average joe who has been discriminated against.  He’s different things for different audiences. In the end, it doesn’t matter, because barack is just the ultimate socialist.

#5 Both can kill you with writing implements.  The Joker does it by stabbing the pencil through your brain. Barack does it by signing such terrible legislation that makes you want to drive a pencil through your brain.

#6 Bit players.  One has a two faced lawyer, driven mad with power, horribly disfigured, with a weird googly eye. He’s a true believer, but is just a pawn to be used by the mastermind. His name is Rahm Emmanuel.  The Joker had that guy played by Aaron Eckhart.

#7 The nemesis.  The Joker had to battle the Dark Knight, Batman, scourge of evil, hero of the shadows, righter of wrongs. A man who will do the right thing, no matter what the costs. A man who doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him. Obama had to fight John McCain, who’s just like Batman, if you made Batman old, and removed half his brain… and he cared more what the press said about him than his own party… Well, nevermind, this one doesn’t work.

#8 Going to any lengths to win.  It doesn’t matter how bad the odds, the Joker was willing to do anything to win. He was prepared to blow up a ship full of innocent people, and found really creative ways to take out his enemies.  Nothing was off the table. Barck will do anything to win, will blow up the economy, is really creative about using the press to slander his enemies, and nothing was off the table. 

#9 Prey upon the weakness of your enemies.  The Joker was not about sniveling and begging to survive. He used Batman’s morals as a weapon against him. He took Batman’s strengths and turned them into weaknesses. Barack uses America’s morals as a weapon against us. For example, how long did it take for the Joker/Obama poster to be called racist? One LA newspaper said the only thing missing was a noose… Because most Americans are not racist and don’t like to be called that, Obama’s folks do not hesitate to play the race card, because they know it is a quick and easy way to get many of us to back down.

I’m not really sure how its racist, unless they’re thinking back to the blackfaced white performers of the early part of the 20th century. Which is really ironic, since the most famous of them was Al Jolson, who loved Black America and was a pioneer of positive race relations, and who was beloved by the black community.  Unless they think that painting your face white is racism, and if that’s the case, they need to raise some hell with Kabuki theater.

#10 Both will lose in the end.  Yay!  Batman eventually beat the Joker, and only 3 and a half more years of FDR2!

EDIT! Darn it, I wrote this at lunch and totally forgot about the part where the Joker pretended to be a medical professional and then blew up a HOSPITAL!  Oh my gosh, this stuff writes itself. :D


From the Whitehouse.

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care.  These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation.  Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.


Words can’t express how I feel right now. 

I would be honored if my regular readers would report me to the Whitehouse for my subversive speech.  You can tell them that Larry Correia (the tall one, from Utah) said that they can take their idiotic health care proposal and jam it up their rectum, all 1,000+ pages, sideways.  Preferably while it is on fire.

Do you remember back in 2002 when DHS came out with their snitch on your neighbor if you think they’re a terrorist about to blow something up program? Do you remember the screaming indignity at that? Do you remember the institutional freak out about how this was the thought police, and Hollywood lining up and holding hands against the sheer fascism of reporting suspicious activity to the police?

Yeah… So do I.

Do you remember when every night on the news we were told that the protestors who were bussed from place to place with George Soros money and Cindy Sheehan were a “grass roots” movement?

I remember that too. So I’m wondering why ticked off American’s who stand up in town-hall meetings with their congressmen now are an “astroturf” movement.  Apparently our anger isn’t real. Our disagreement over health care is because we’re “uneducated” or “uninformed.” I’ve heard people called rednecks, right-wing agitators, and one recently returned GI was dismissed because he was dressed too nicely, and that was suspicious. Because Lord knows, soldiers can’t wear a suit.

Are you as tired of this as I am?

Have you seen the recent picture of Obama photoshopped as the Joker with SOCIALISM written underneath? I saw a young man post that on Facebook yesterday, and he was immediately ripped into by some other posters because it was just “hateful” and I think that there were insinuations of racism.

So… Were these same people offended with all the George Bush pictures that compared him to a monkey?

No, no, of course not. Because that is different.  See, Barack is just a good man, and if you disagree, then you’ll just have to agree to disagree, but don’t use Hate Speech. It is Hate Speech to call him a socialist.

Allrighty then. I’ve thrown this challenge out a few times and it has never been answered yet. Most of my readers fall into the right-libertarian end of the chart, I know that, but please, pass this challenge on to your liberal friends.

If Barack Obama isn’t a socialist, please name 5 policies, regulations, or laws that he has proposed or pushed during his presidency, that Karl Marx himself would not have approve of.

I’m still waiting for the first one. So if the father of socialism would approve of everything Obama has done, and the Socialist and Communist parties of America love and support the guy and his policies, wouldn’t that make him a… I don’t know… what’s the word I’m looking for… Socialist?  (I had one guy try to seriously suggest that staying in Afghanistan was one… Yes, because socialist countries have never gone to war…)

Listen, morons at flag@whitehouse.gov.  We’re not stupid. We’re not uneducated. We’re not uninformed. But we are extremely angry.  The subversives at the town-halls shouting down your puppet congressmen are regular people who share the same feelings of betrayal and fear as the rest of us.  We are smart enough to know that the government has never, ever, taken over anything and made it more efficient, better, or cheaper.

We know that other countries with socialized medicine have all sorts of problems. We know that the vast majority of medical research is performed by American companies. Most of us are happy with our insurance. Most of us can actually read the text of the law, which is more than I can say for congress. We know when we’re being lied to. 

It doesn’t take “fear mongering” to despise this bill. All it takes is basic literacy and a tiny love of freedom.

We’re not stupid. We’re pissed off. Get it straight.

Just finished up the interview with Gun Nuts Media


Just finished the interview. 40 minutes flew by. I had a great time and lots of folks called in. Caleb and Breda http://thebredafallacy.blogspot.com/ were awesome. Yep, I’d do that any time.

I even got to talk to folks that I know online, from here, the forums, and on FB, and coolest of all, I got to actually talk to Lawdog. I’ve known him since the dawn of TFL in… I want to say like 1995 or so. I’ve probably talked to him 4,000 times online and that was the first time I’d actually heard his voice. Man, the internet is wild.

The first caller was Dave, my old buddy, who was wondering when I was going to go shoot some 3gun again now that I’m a famous author. Well, if the royaty checks are really good, I might be able to buy half a case of 5.56!  

You can download the interview. Let me know what you think.
