MSNBC Guest: Rodeo Clown with Obama Mask is GOPís Base
Mediaite ^ | August 13, 2013 | Noah Rothman

Progressive radio host and frequent MSNBC guest, Earl Ofari Hutchinson, appeared on MSNBC with Thomas Roberts on Tuesday where he dug into Republican efforts to deflect criticism that state-level voter identification laws are designed to disenfranchise minority voters. Hutchinson said that racially insensitive attacks on President Barack Obama appeal to the GOP’s base voters, personified by a rodeo clown who was recently criticized for wearing an Obama mask.

“The relentless racial assault on Obama has been the one unyielding constant from the moment that Obama declared his presidential candidacy in 2007,” Hutchinson recently wrote on his blog.

Asked to expand on that theme on MSNBC, Hutchinson said that the Republican National Committee’s effort at rebranding in the wake of the GOP’s 2012 loss was undone by a “groundswell” of opposition among Republican base voters.

He said that it is clear that the GOP’s rebranding effort has “died a stillborn death” and that shows that the Republican Party was always insincere about their stated plan to reach out to minority voters.

The GOP is looking over their shoulder and they know this,” Hutchinson opined, “they know the protesters at — were in Phoenix, they were in Orlando. All of that, and also the clown at the Missouri state fair, even though it seems outrageous and ridiculous and ludicrous, they understand one thing: that’s their base. That’s their rank and file.”

Hutchinson recently appeared on Al Sharpton’s radio program where he called Fox News Channel hosts Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, as well as CNN anchor Don Lemon, “professional assassins of African-Americans.”

These leftist wing nuts are simply demanding that no one take them seriously.

We are the rodeo clown. We’re the unsung anonymous heroes who make this country function while the “stars” strut about for a brief period on stage and they think the world revolves around them.

And, yes, we hate the arrogant, communist bastard who occupies our White House only because he was put there by people who do nothing but sit in the bleachers and cheer for the stars while ignoring the hardworking clowns who keep the rodeo smooth and safe.

So - we hate Obama. Is that now illegal? How long is the jail term? I’d maybe rather be inside anyway. So the clown speaks for We the People. He has to have sensitivity training? Is this Communist Russia?

Barry's base is the lint in the bottom of Geroge Soros 's pocket

I put on an obama mask on me bum every time I poop - that way it seems more realistic. He’s so full of...well, you get the idea.

That rodeo clown was just “speaking truth to power”.

We should throw the ridiculous phrases right back in the Statists clueless faces.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Who are you and why should I care what you think or say? Your idea of a GOP re-branding effort would be to act sluttier than Democrats already act to garner favor of the perpetually pissed off black Americans.

Any criticism of Obama is a “racially insensitive attack”?
I’m thinking of that stuff at rodeos that falls out of the animals’ rear ends ... It’s a lot like the stuff coming out of guys like Hutchinson’s mouth.
Yes that’s right. It’s the language of grievance politics. Don’t step in it.
