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

Posted on 08/13/2013 6:15:51 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

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.”

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?

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.

“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.””

OK, I think I have been open minded on these issues as long as I can possibly be. That is over. If Hutchinson and the rest of his ilk feel so disenfranchised or discriminated upon by the people in this country, why stay? Go where you will be more happy, try some god forsaken place in some jungle in Africa where you can be an American African. See how many benefits you get. Try for that affirmative action chiefdom job. I will be happy to have the government provide you one way transportation with the proviso you never come back. Good bye and good riddance.

I wonder if the liberals realize how they’ve desensitized this country to any real race discrimination. I would never believe anyone claiming it now. That race card is worn out and threadbare. I can’t help but laugh now every time it’s thrown out there.

I wouldn’t wear an Obama mask to mock the man because it seems sill. With that said, I’ve seen people mocking Presidents with masks for years and years. I’ve seen Nixon masks, Reagan masks, Bush masks (both 41 and 43). I even remember seeing Clinton masks. It’s a part of politics. The guy at the rodea may be weird or over-the-top or whatever, but he’s certainly done nothning that I haven’t seen done many times before in my life. Why are we talking about this rodea clown again?

Rodeo Clown with Obama Mask is GOP’s Base

Oooh. There are some people who just should not do television.

But as to the not-quite-substance of this feller's remarks, it struck me that it's the Democrats who are wearing the 0bummer mask—all of them. They have half-black 0bama masks on, in the hopes of insulating their criminal actions from criticism. Notice that there was nothing said during the rodeo sequence about race—except by 0bummer's people, who pretended to be shocked.

Reminds one of the really old-school, "You wouldn't hit a man with glasses, would you?" Except it's, "You wouldn't hit a man wearing a designated-victim mask, would you?"

Try me.
