Missouri State Fair officials apologize for rodeo clown who wore Obama mask
WaPo ^ | 8/12/13 | Aaron Blake

Posted on 08/12/2013 2:26:44 PM PDT by ColdOne

Update 4:15 p.m.: The rodeo clown has been banned from participating in the state fair again.

SNIP

Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.), meanwhile, said: “I am amazed that in 2013, such hatred, intolerance and disrespect towards the President of the United States could take place at the Missouri State Fair. Our fair is supposed to showcase the best of Missouri, instead, it showed an ugly face of intolerance and ignorance to the world.”

Funny, I don’t remember a$$-kissing groveling apologies over the hate directed at GWBush.

Hopefully they will also ban all the fans who cheered the guy as well. That will leave exactly ONE person left standing, the liberal who posted the video with all the usual whines. Since he hates rodeo too, they can ban that. And then they can cancel the state fair altogether, which will be fine with the Obama crowd.

CAVED! I can’t believe it! Presidents have always been the butts of jokes at rodeos! I still remember the anti LBJ joke from the 1960s.

Cowboy walks into a bar and says “Lyndon Johnson is a horse’s Ass! (they substituted Horses neck).

Another cowboy gets up and slugs him.
1st cowboy says..”Man this must be LBJ country!:

The other cowboy says...”WE AIN’T LBJ country! But we are darn good horse country!”

Why is the Washington Poo concerned? When it came to an extended case of corruption, murder, coverup, and public support for the activities at an abortion clinic in Philly, we were told that they didn’t cover local crime stories.

It didn’t show hatred, or intolerence it perhaps
showed some disrespect but we are allowed to do
that.....at least we WERE.

I’m only surprised the clown got off as lightly
as he has, in the Soviet Union he’d of gotten 10 years.
Oh well, that’s probably next the way things are going.

Because free speech is just friggin wrong when exercised by a conservative against a socialist. From everything I have read the crowd loved it. I think the State Fair Officials are all geldings.

explain why they automatically assume someone wearing an obama mask is wearing it for hatred?!?

so are we to now assume anyone who wears a mask of someone else automatically HATES that person?

I have never heard the rationale for this conclusion.

I intensely dislike obama, I have no desire to ever wear anything with his face on it.

Daily KOS made it “newsworthy”.

Yet if something is heavily discussed n FR or Rush Limbaugh, it gets buried by the MSM.

obama walks into a doctor’s office with a frog on his head. The doctor says “Can I help you?”

The frog said “Yeah, can you get this wart off my ass?”

Is that racist?

The article also says it was the clown who asked the crowd if they wanted to see him get run over by a bull. It was the announcer. And the public cheered wildly.

Next time just put a tranny in an Obama mask in the kissing boot. State fair officials and politicos would be supportive of that.

Someone should re-record the song but make it about Bush.

Sense he’s half white, wouldn’t the clown be half racist?

Did they apologize to all rodeo clowns for the degrading
comparison to a bozo who has never done anything courageous?

I am left to assume that Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) and the Missouri State Fair officials are homosexuals, baby killing supporters and country destroying anti-Americans.

They should apologize.

The mask more properly would have been placed on the bull's arse, so B.S. could spew from the mouth periodically for the pleasure of the crowd.

Lacy Clay needs to do some studying of history of USA politics to ease her conscience. In fact she only needs to review the last 50 or so years. This the kind of government representative who is handling our Constitutional rights? The state of Missouri should be ashamed of It’s self for acting in such a deprivation of freedom of expression. Maybe there is a civil rights case here. Of course I have to admit I enjoyed what I saw and heard and felt a tinge of truth.

The Washington Post considers this news.

They work for BO and they won’t admit it.

They are sold. After how many years as a dynasty business?

Just, sold.

Anyone who wonders what the future holds for BO supporters of any kind is just not paying any attention.

"I am amazed that in 2013, such hatred, intolerance and disrespect towards the President of the United States could take place"

Well, Ms. Democrat suck-ass,

I'm amazed that such hatred for We The People and the U.S. Constitution, as intended, ignoring of laws and selective enforcement of Laws, and disrespect for the OFFICE OF the President of the United States itself could take place BY THE INELIGIBLE TOKEN BLACK jackass that was voter-fraud-elected to the Office, myself.

Get a grip, you fool.

Actually, dressing as a clown is a factual representation of the current Occupant, but the piles of manure around the rodeo corral were more representative of his Agenda.....
