Now, I happened to see on Drudge’s website today, they got a new health care logo. So I clicked on it, and I went to the White House website, Organizing for Health Care because I wanted to see a bigger version of the health care logo. And it’s got the standard Obama logo, the circle with the three red stripes and the blue sky at the top. But then it’s got things in it I haven’t seen since World War II. First off, this guy’s obsessed with crowds. You ought to go look at this. I can’t show it to you on the Dittocam, it’s too small. But you can get an idea if you go to Drudge’s page or just MyBarackObama.com, Organizing for Health Care. It has three stars. It’s got wings, sort of a AMA type logo or something, and then it’s got masses of zombie-like people lined up behind the logo and between what is a bright blue sun with radiant rays shooting out from it. The guy is obviously obsessed with crowds. The picture here is designed to put forth the image that people are clamoring for it and supporting it in massive numbers, but this guy and his logos and the posters and so forth, this is just odd. I haven’t seen this type of thing since World War II.
I actually think Obama is in the process of becoming a caricature. I do. I think he’s becoming a caricature of himself slowly. You know this poster of Obama out there as the Joker? People are all bent out of shape about this. It turns out that Vanity Fair back in 2008 sometime did their own artwork in a cover story of Bush as the Joker, as Heath Ledger Joker and it was praised as a great piece of art. Now, this is a poster, and they’re saying this is racist, this is humiliating, you don’t talk about the president of the United States. The very people who spent seven years mocking everything about George W. Bush telling us how to assassinate him in books, doing movies about his being assassinated, calling him Hitler are just outraged about this, but there’s nothing racist about this Obama poster. In fact, if you’ve seen The Dark Knight — have you seen The Dark Knight, Snerdley? All right, you know the character of the Joker in that movie, the Joker in that movie took every opportunity to remake Gotham City, didn’t he?
He had a big damn chip on his shoulder about his childhood and about a bunch of other things. His goal was to undermine the whole system. I think whoever did this is pretty brilliant, actually. And to effect the change that the people of Gotham City didn’t want, the Joker created chaos upon chaos. The whole city was focused on him and what he was going to do next. He viewed crisis as an opportunity. So the Joker orchestrated crisis after crisis after crisis. And the Joker wore a mask. I mean whoever put this poster together is pretty smart because there are some similarities here to what the Joker did in that movie and what Obama is doing to this country. And, by the way, Obama has admitted to wearing masks. In Dreams from My Father: ‘It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned. People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved, such a pleasant surprise to find a well mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.’ This is his tactic for fooling white people. This is the mask.
They are just livid over this poster out there now. Well, bloggers and some of the cable network people are talking about it, but this thing that Vanity Fair ran doesn’t even look like Bush. It looks like David Corn, the guy who used to write for The Nation. On a normal day it looks like David Corn. But they mocked Bush doing this the same way. From the UK tabloid, the Daily Mail: ‘Spoof Poster of Obama’s Face Painted as The Joker Branded ‘Dangerous and Mean-Spirited’ — A poster depicting Barack Obama as Batman villain The Joker has been called ‘mean-spirited and dangerous’ by the US President’s supporters. … The creator of the image remains unknown, but the website that first published the image crashed yesterday because so many had been attempting to view it. It has since been spotted in Los Angeles and Atlanta.’ A poster. A poster has been spotted. A poster spotted in Los Angeles. Oh, and a poster spotted in Atlanta. They’re trying to figure out who did it. Thomas Lifson: ‘Open mockery of Barack Obama, as disillusionment sets in with the man, his policies, and the phony image of a race-healing, brilliant, scholarly, middle-of-the-roader.’
RUSH: Let me ask you a question, folks. Why is it art when some cretin dips a crucifix or a cross in a jar of urine? He got a federal grant to do it. It’s hung in some museum in New York. Remember that from back in the nineties? Andres Serrano, a crucifix dangled in a jar of urine in a museum. It was called art. Federal tax dollars granted him the money that was not necessary to do it. But a poster of Obama as the Joker paid for by someone on his own and hung on telephone poles or wherever in Los Angeles and Atlanta is over the line! That poster ought to be framed and hung in a museum. It’s art, after all, isn’t it? Maybe somebody ought to write a book about Obama. It could be called: Barack Obama is a Big-Eared Idiot. I’ll bet the libs would love that! Barack Obama is a Big-Eared Dumbo. I bet the libs would love it.
You see, you libs don’t get to tell us what we can and cannot do; what we can and cannot say. You have set the standard. You want to play the game by your rules? We’re more than happy to. You elect people to high public office who are often disgusting, who have pathetic backgrounds and so forth. You embrace artists who are on the public dole defacing images of Jesus. You fund street protests and organizers, and we’re supposed to play by different rules? We’re supposed to just take it lying down? We choose not to. If I’d have known this guy that did the poster, I would have commissioned it. I’ve always wanted to be a patron to the arts, but the arts have never been interested in me, other than my own art of broadcasting. I am an artist here, and it’s artistry each and every day. Yeah, somebody do it. Let’s write the book, Barack Obama is a Big-Eared Idiot, and let’s see how the libs react to that.
RUSH: Koko Jr. from the website just reminded me of a story from the Associated Press on April 13th, 2005: ‘The Secret Service sent agents to investigate a college art gallery exhibit of mock postage stamps, one depicting President George W. Bush with a gun pointed at his head. The exhibit, ‘Axis of Evil: The Secret History of Sin,’ opened last week at Columbia College in Chicago. It features stamps designed by 47 artists addressing issues such as the Roman Catholic sex-abuse scandal, racism and the war in Iraq. None of the artists is tied to the college.’ The Secret Service was looking into this. We’ll post this. Koko Jr., put this on the website right now, too, just the graphic of this story so people can see. They’re all upset about a poster over of The One, a poster of The One depicting him as a Joker.
Meanwhile, we’ve had to sit here and we’ve had to pay for people putting chocolate all over themselves and writhing around nude on stage and having that called art. We had to watch and be told how artistic it was for a crucifix to be put in a jar of urine that we had to pay for with an NEA grant and some of the other debasements of our culture that the left has given us. By the way, did you see The Dark Knight in high definition? I have seen it in Blu-ray high definition just like I’m watching this administration in high definition, and the chaos is the chaos.
