If progressives had real trust in Obama’s commitment to doing the right thing, the administration would have broad leeway to do deals. But the president doesn’t command that kind of trust.
These fools sicken us. They let Obama get away with his FISA lies, before the Denver convention, almost a year ago, and now they are upset. All the lies, all the misogyny, all the sexism, all the race-baiting – and now they’re upset. Our vocabulary is too limited to describe the contempt we have for these fools and Left Talkers. We’ll repeat what we know about Obama The Joker – burn this into your “minds” those that dare call yourselves “progressives”:
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
It took these “progressive” boys and girls this long to begin to understand Obama can’t be trusted. How long will it take these Joker’s fools to realize that expecting “progressive” Dimocrats in Congress to oppose their darling Obama is truly a fools errand? Already these “progressive” Dimocrats have signaled they will give their lives to The Joker and his Corrupt Chicago Circus. [
Get a clue you PINO fools – read why “reconciliation rules” will not work to revive this health care corpse and how congressional “progressives” crumbled already – after they signed that famous letter.
Obama Congressional Dimocrats are as reliable as Obama’s cologne.]

It turns out the “racist” who created the Obama The Joker poster is not a white man nor a white woman. Because the “racist” is not white, Big Media will ignore the story. We won’t.
Big Media was hysterical with shouts of “racism”. Long, tedious, non-imaginative articles were written trying to detect “racism” and code messages in what was clearly a very effective bit of artistry. The Washington Post led the hysteria with an article called Obama As The Joker: Racial Fear’s Ugly Face.
Obama, like the Joker and like the racial stereotype of the black man, carries within him an unknowable, volatile and dangerous marker of urban violence, which could erupt at any time. The charge of socialism is secondary to the basic message that Obama can’t be trusted, not because he is a politician, but because he’s black.
The lesson from the article is that no matter what Obama does he cannot be attacked because any and all attacks are racist. Let us be the first to damn those “progressives” and Paul Krugman who do not trust Obama as “racists, racists, racists”.
Who is the “racist” that created the Obama The Joker image. It turns out the “racist” is a 20 year old Palestinian socialist.
When cryptic posters portraying President Obama as the Joker from “Batman” began popping up around Los Angeles and other cities, the question many asked was, Who is behind the image?
Was it an ultra-conservative grassroots group or a disgruntled street artist going against the grain?
Nope, it turns out, just a 20-year-old college student from Chicago.
Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the picture of Obama with the recognizable clown makeup using Adobe’s Photoshop software. [snip]
Then the counter exploded after a still-anonymous rogue famously found his image, digitally removed the references to Time Magazine, captioned the picture with the word “socialism” and hung printed copies around L.A., making headlines.
Alkhateeb is not a fan of Barack Obama nor of Rahm Emanuel. Alkhateeb should be frightened. Alkhateeb is dealing with thugs who are sure to get at him.
Alkhateeb says he wasn’t actively trying to cover his tracks, but he did want to lay low. He initially had concerns about connecting his name with anything critical of the president — especially living in Chicago, where people are “very, very liberal,” he said.
“After Obama was elected, you had all of these people who basically saw him as the second coming of Christ,” Alkhateeb said. “From my perspective, there wasn’t much substance to him.”
He’s not white, therefore no story for Big Media.
“I abstained from voting in November,” he wrote in an e-mail. “Living in Illinois, my vote means close to nothing as there was no chance Obama would not win the state.” If he had to choose a politician to support, Alkhateeb said, it would be Ohio Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich. [snip]
Although Alkhateeb claims he was making no political statement with the artwork, he’s plugged into the Washington debate. Though born in the United States, his Palestinian family closely follows Middle Eastern politics.
“I think he’s definitely doing better than Bush was,” Alkhateeb said of Obama. Alkhateeb’s views on foreign relations align with the Democrats, he said, while he prefers Republican ideals on domestic issues.
Alkhateeb’s assessment of Obama: “In terms of domestic policy, I don’t think he’s really doing much good for the country right now,” he said. “We don’t have to ‘hero worship’ the guy.”
Alkhateeb it is reported is a socialist and is offended by the description of Obama as a socialist. Even the socialists don’t want anything to do with Obama anymore.
He’s honored by Shepard Fairey’s assessment of his Joker picture, but disagrees with some of Fairey’s comments criticizing the message of the Socialism poster.
“He made a picture of Bush as a vampire,” Alkhateeb said about Fairey. “That’s kind of speaking with two faces.”
Regardless, Alkhateeb does agree with the Obama “Hope” artist about “socialism” being the wrong caption for the Joker image. “It really doesn’t make any sense to me at all,” he said. “To accuse him of being a socialist is really … immature. First of all, who said being a socialist is evil?”

Another story which will be downplayed by Big Media because of race is The Gun story. Recall the attack on a protester at a town hall event. The attack featured racial epithets of the “n” word variety. But the man attacked was black and he was protesting against Obama – so no Big Media story for you.
The Gun story is another instance of guns taken to Obama events. In earlier events the gun packing papa was interviewed by the leg tingler on MSNBC and much noise was made about potential attacks on Obama.
In Phoenix, Arizona there was a man outside an Obama publicity stunt with an ominous rifle clearly visible. The man does not like Obama’s health care scam nor gun control. Unfortunately for Big Media, the man is not white. The gun-toting papa is African-American – so no Big Media story for you.
We could be comical and accuse Big Media of racism for refusing to interview black men while providing much publicity to white men.
Outside the Phoenix Convention Center, protesters held signs against Obama’s health care proposals while others are calling for a withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.
One protester who didn’t want to give his name was walking around with a rifle in full view.
“I’m exercising my right as an American in Arizona,” he said. “I’m actually totally against healthcare in this way, in this manner, stealing it from people. I don’t think that’s appropriate.”
The man also carried a hand gun on his hip and a round of ammunition in his back pocket, all completely legal.
He said he’s fighting both health care and his right to carry a firearm in public.
“I come from another state where open carry is legal, but no one does it, so police don’t really know about it, and they harass people and arrest people falsely,” he said. “In America, people have the ability to fight back and resist.”
Black men who do not like Obama will be shunted aside as a non-story by Big Media. “People of color” (an odious phrase) are generally exempt from Big Media scrutiny too if they don’t like Obama. White people who don’t support Obama will be featured racists on the evening news.
