Missouri NAACP responds to State Fair incident
connectmidmissouri.com ^ | August 13, 2013

Posted on 08/13/2013 3:27:23 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

From Mary Ratliff, State President of the NAACP:

"The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our President are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department. Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair ."

"In addition, our Legislature has failed to support Medicare Expansion in Missouri, has consistently attempted to dismantle our Human Rights Commission, fail to adequately fund urban schools (whom are predominately African American), yet they are subsidizing the Missouri State Fair to the tune of $400,000; we are calling for the subsidy to stop."

"Racially intolerant and insulting incidents are not uncommon in the our State lately; and in some cases on the floor of the State Capitol where intolerant and insulting behavior towards our African American President has occurred, clearly reflects the sorrow history of racism in our Country and more specifically attitudes reminisces of the Missouri Compromise."

"Lastly, the Governor's planned Pancake Breakfast for Thursday should be his 'Last Supper' at the Missouri State Fair in response to the racially intolerant attacks on his Commander in Chief."

Political Correctness must be stopped, or freedom will disappear for two or three generations.

Is this in reference to the ‘rodeo clown’ incident?

If so, one can only say, ‘Good Lord...’

Oh, puleeze. If this had been done to President Bush the press would have laughed it off as a harmless prank.

Remember...
ANY critism of Obama is RASSISS!

Get it?

Welcome to the new paradigm.

If it had been done to Bush (and I’m sure it was, and worse), it never would have made the news. Because in Bush’s case, it was justified. Or so the otherwise “tolerant” would say.

Dear Missouri NAACP: President Obama likes Americans who are black so much, that he vacations at Martha’s Vineyard so he can be around them more. He made a big deal out of flying in his dog. That tells me that he likes dogs more than he likes Americans who are black. Wake up.

The Iowa and Wisconsin Fairs are worse where blacks went around beating people.

Or the white kid in Kansas City, Missouri who got set on fire.

Mary Ratliff’s statements are just the kind of maniacal rantings which one would expect from a race-card-tossing Traitorobamanite, and represent a pus-oozing sore on the political butt of America.

I’m confused. We can’t make fun of the president because he’s black and cured racism and brought us all together?

I know, only a liberal thinks like that...it’s retarded.

Talk about “thin-skinned”!

That one they would have. But, one does not mock, blaspheme, nor take the name of their god, one barack Obama, in vain without suffering dire repercussions and reprisals. Also, as the evidence shows and has shown, the Republican Party is included in the cult of Obama worshipers. John Mc Cain and Lindsey Graham are the head deacons.

"Lastly, the Governor's planned Pancake Breakfast for Thursday should be his 'Last Supper' at the Missouri State Fair in response to the racially intolerant attacks on his Commander in Chief."

So, how is this closing comment meant to be taken? "Governor, 'govern' thyself?" Make sure 'Caesar' is appeased ??

They'll tell you no one threatened Bush with a charging bull.

And they'll be serious.

If this is a newsworthy example of racism then there is no racism.

My understanding it was done to Pres. H.W. Bush back in 1994, although he was a former pres. at the time. I think it was the same routine as well.

I’ve known a few PRCA cowboys. They stick together. I think that the State Fair guys have gone too far and will experience a cowboy-cott at next year’s fair.

Read an article linked from Drudge (I think) on this from some left-wing rag, was interested in the comments. The ones from the Ohomo worshipers were hilarious, some of them must have been in tears when they posted - all because Dear Leader got dissed. In the immortal words of Mr. T - I pity the fools.

Don’t be afraid of them, give them something to be outraged about every week until they have a melt down and people will see how ridiculous they are. This “boy who cried wolf” act will soon be seen for the big hilarious fraud that it is.

Back in 1996, I tried to get the NAACP to issue a response to Presidential candidate Alan Keyes being arrested for trying to enter a venue where a Presidential debate was being held. They told me at the time that “the NAACP does not get involved with political issues”.
