The Joker Is A (Not) Socialist

This is an ad that I found in the sidebar while cruising Facebook (because I like to 'cruise' Facebook from time to time). Apparently, The Joker has become the poster-boy for socialism.

Someone please send these guys my rant contrasting The Joker and socialism. Money:
Anyone who is a fan of The Dark Knight (comic books or movies) knows that what's striking about the Joker character is that he is an anarchist. He describes himself as an 'agent of chaos'. These qualities are the antithesis of socialism.

If the Joker were a rabid socialist, he would have attempted to destroy Gotham City in the name of an all-powerful government. Instead, he was trying to destroy the city and in the process he nearly takes down the government as well (by using many of it's own employees no less).
Ugh.
