The Virginia NAACP called it an abomination and a sign of disrespect. The owner of a downtown Richmond strip club called it exercising his right to free speech.
About three dozen people attended a lunchtime protest yesterday outside Velvet, where a new banner on one of the exterior walls depicts President Barack Obama as the Joker of "Batman" movie fame.

If it had been a BUSH “Joker” poster, they’d be praising it for it’s artistic value, and demanding an NEA subsidy for taking it around the country to show school children....
The hypocrisy of these people knows no bounds.
They were up early and it isn’t the first of the month yet, check day.
This picture needs to be on every building and telephone poll in America.
If it had been Bush, Beck, Rush or any White guy, the Muslim leaning NAACP would applaud.
I know this mentality. I have seen Blacks lose their minds at ANY criticism of Obama. It has gone to the point where Blacks have actually called the police to report a sign or bumper sticker critical of Obama. This is no accident. I have met Blacks who absolutely believe that it is illegal, i.e., against the law, to criticize Obama. This shows their penchant for totalitarianism as well as their expectation to be coddled and pampered by Whitey.
They are not used to being treated as equals.
Don’t know who the liberace in flowing purple robes is, but I’m willing to bet he doesn’t have to get up early each day and put in 12 hours to feed his family. Community agitator/organizer probably would be a safe bet.
It’s hard to take someone seriously, even if they’re argument is flawed, when they dress up like a clown.
I guess my point is, and I really don’t have one, is that I’m really left wondering two things: 1) Does he have a matching pontiff pointy hat, and 2) Does the flowing robe match the upholstery in his ‘72 Eldorado pimpmobile.
FYI... It isn’t a good strip joint. Too expensive for such a lousy joint.
It's great, and I get people asking if they can snap cell phone pics of it too.
I wear it all the time.
Sometimes I get some nasty looks, but f em. I couldn't care less about offending Obama lovers.
In fact, I wear the shirt just as much to offend Obama @$$-kissers as I do to put smiles on peoples faces who think he's a POS.
Message vs. Messenger. The "protest" was over the sign. They didn't seem to mind the stripping.
The Oboma image was disrespectful, but the stripping was...well....respectable in their eyes, I guess.
Can you imagine the furor if Barack were painted in black face? ;-P
Now I’d like to see those two set up side by side on that building with a sign underneath that says “IRONY!”
BO has NOT EARNED ANY RESPECT!
There seems to be some moral confusion here. Where were you people before the sign went up? Were you protesting the personal degradation and economic damage strip clubs do to the community?
Oh, I see. You ordinarily wouldn't harass a strip club because that's where the guys in your leadership go for entertainment. Probably seems like sacrilege to have an anti-Obama poster there.
Carol Burnett in “Went with the Wind”? My kids have memorized that sketch.
King Salim Khalfani, president of the Virginia NAACP. Seriously, that's his name.
This is the mural as it appears today:
Dancer Kaitlyn McGee handed out a statement from club owner Sam Moore, who did not appear. The statement described him as a “staunch libertarian” and said the banner was intended to show his displeasure with Obama’s policies.
“Mr. Moore would like to say that anyone who believes that his banner is racist is an ignoramus,” it read.
He's, no doubt, a minister at the Church of Oboma.
