    Obama "Joker" Artist is a Palestinian Arab from Chicago

    Obama 'Joker' Artist a Palestinian Arab from Chicago - Barack Obama - Gawker

    You know those posters of Obama looking like the Joker from Batman with the word "socialism" underneath? The creator of that creepy image has emerged, and it's not some "real" American from a red state. Far from it.

    According to the LA Times, the perpetrator is a 20-year-old University of Chicago Illinois student named Firas Alkhateeb who made the image during his winter break from school using PhotoShop, naturally.


    Sometimes, the truth really is stranger than fiction.

    Everything about this amuses me. The only thing that would make it better would be if he were earning royalties from use of this image as an avatar. I think I'm going to start referring to people who use it as "terrorist supporters."

    I still don't understand what the Joker has to do with Socialism. Where's the connection?

    Ya got me.

    If I were to guess, it's a parody of the pop-art style "HOPE" posters.

    Or, it has something to do with grinning while selling a socialist agenda.

    Did you read the article? NOTHING about this graphic makes sense. It's being used purely to shock and offend.

    I find it funny, personally.

    Yea, I did read it. The unknown guy who put in socialism. You know, the guy who doctored the doctored photo. He perhaps wanted to make a connection between the two, or not, I dunno.

    Anyway. If there IS a connection, I'm missing it.

    I find it funny, personally.
    I'd put it in the Strange Pictures thread. But Vicchio hardly ever posts anything there.
