Obama campaign's poster for his Berlin rally

Is this creepy, or what?

Looks inspired by fascist art.

"....fascist art scorns realism in the name of "idealism." The tastes for the monumental and for mass obeisance to the hero... reflecting the view of all totalitarian regimes that art has the function of "immortalizing" its leaders and doctrines.... the will is staged publicly, in the drama of the leader and the chorus." (Susan Sontag)

Since your example looks nothing at all like Obama's poster, I think this post is creepy. There's plenty of real fascism to discuss in July 2008, after all.

I'm a regular reader and I'm not in agreeance with you on this. That is not an offensive poster. He's the star of the show not the Fuerher.
