Obama mocked in 'Joker' posters

Judging by the poster showing Barack Obama as Heath Ledger’s Joker and daubed with the word ‘socialism’ in various locations across LA, there appears to be a concerted effort by the far-right to undermine the US president.
The uncredited poster shows his lips smeared in red lipstick, his eye sockets kohl-black and his hair dyed green. Combined with a whitened face, it strongly resembles Ledger’s Joker image in ‘The Dark Knight’.
The accusations against Obama of ‘socialism’ come as the president tries to launch healthcare reforms with a $590 billion programme.
The latest smear follows a conspiracy theory propagated by ‘the birthers’, a group of far-right activists claiming that Obama was not born in the US but in Kenya and as a result he is not entitled to be president and first citizen under US Constitution rules.
