Skip to comments.MSNBC Guest: Rodeo Clown with Obama Mask is GOPís Base
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 GOPs 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 Committees effort at rebranding in the wake of the GOPs 2012 loss was undone by a groundswell of opposition among Republican base voters.
He said that it is clear that the GOPs 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: thats their base. Thats their rank and file.
Hutchinson recently appeared on Al Sharptons radio program where he called Fox News Channel hosts Bill OReilly and Sean Hannity, as well as CNN anchor Don Lemon, professional assassins of African-Americans.

Shall we really get into what Barry’s base is?
These leftist wing nuts are simply demanding that no one take them seriously.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
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’m buying me an Obama mask.
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.
Hallowe’en is coming
I’ll take some clown, over some leftist, Marxist, hypocritical POS any day.
Say it: Obama Clown.
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.
” Is this Communist Russia?”
No, you live in the USSA, Communist America. Get use to it.
It will not go away in your lifetime, and why I will not return.
10 million Obama masked march on Halloween.
We’ll go out and redistribute candy.
And what exactly is the Dem base..lets see..Communists, Marxists, felons, fags, transgender freaks, bums who refuse to work and collect Govt goodies..I can go on there are lots more
I went to a party a few years back as Ronald Reagan among a bunch of Democrats and everyone luv’d it.
You guys can’t take a joke.
Fine by me. Demonstrates how thin your character is.
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.
MSNBC promotes Al Sharpton. Shove your race baiting.
I try to have a healthy Oba ma every morning.
So they get angry at the clown with the obama mask. If they can’t take a joke, then they should not have voted for a clown for their _resident.
GOP’s base, my ass. GOP is a bunch of moderate RATS.
I would say the rodeo guy represents everyone who sees through Barry’s BS.
Now, the FIRST amendment is under assault.
Well, only for HALF the country, I guess..
If he means that the GOP’s base is made up of people who sees Obama for what he is, then guilty as charged!
I responded to this as others should have responded to the clown... I laughed, very much.
You and me both, and so many other ex-pats I know. Time to get together and form our own capitalist ex-pat haven for disenfranchised conservatives.
The clown speaks for me.
Boy, that clown was awesome!! I LMAO. People,as general rule , hate obama’s guts. You could see it right there at the fair. But these darn gutless republicrats like boehner, ryan and rubio are worms. At least obammy was given a chance but “no mo”.
Clown with odumber mask ... probably an insult to other clowns. But if they’re ok with it, I see no problem.
...but only about half as much as he hates us. Never thought I'd see the day.
Are you referring to “The 47%”?????????????????????
“You and me both, and so many other ex-pats I know.”
Watch out for the handful of “dog in a manger” FReepers who despise anyone who can run his own life and become an expat.
They claim that they will fight to save the country, but give no clue as to what they can or will do.
It is one thing when your country is invaded by another power, but it is a real problem to start shooting your own people. The USSA has passed the point of no return.
Reminds me of the comedian who dare to make fun of Hitler. It did not end well for the comedian.
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.
Go ahead Hutchinson, rant and rave. Enjoy the moment, feel the power, but know this all the way to your soul... your fantasy WILL end.
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?
Someone PLEASE tell this stupid asshat it’s not about race! It’s about the total failure and inexperience of a socialist community organizer be him of purple,yellow, green or blue color...damn it!!!
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 maskall 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 raceexcept 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?"
Does this mean no more BO Hallowe’en masks? Check the costume offerings for this fall.
No, it's Communist America.
I’m sure he’s trying to make a point . . .
