Sure got the NAACP’s panties in a wad.
The hell with the NAACP! Hypocrite turds that they are!
I would think that rodeo clowns need very good vision to prevent an encounter with a raging bull.
How can the small slits in the mask enable good vision??
Talk about double standards.
Leftists understand that ridicule is politics’ most potent weapon, so they actually resist it, unlike the stupid party.
I think I will get an Obama mask for halloween
buy now before the ban takes effect
It just sounds like Marxism to me.
“...sounds like Marxism to me.”
It IS Marxism and fascism, and it will get much, much worse.
Is that a George W or George H W mask ?
Or I guess it was W as he was the gov of Texas in 94?
He wasn’t the gov until 95.
So I’m guessing that’s an H W Bush mask ?
But it looks like W.... ?
(Ah yes... conversations with myself without my morning coffee)
If mosquitoes were not so annoying, there would be no DDT.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.
Look at the bright side; if it wasn’t for double standards liberals would have no standards at all.
In the era of Obama; even rodeo clowns are a source of scandal.
But abandoning Navy SEALS in a battle is totally fine.
There have been Obama masks since he became president just as there have been masks of other presidents such as Bush.
You can buy a full, pullover, vinyl mask of Obama on the internet for $10-$15. Probably also available at your local costume shop.
Why then is this particular Obama mask controversial while the other Obama masks have not been controversial?
Masks are actually caricatures and as such Obama masks feature large teeth and big ears. And this rodeo clown Obama mask also features large teeth and big ears.
But the rodeo mask also features Obama as having thick lips and blue gums/lips.
So, instead of trying to compare this mask of Obama to masks of Bush, you need to compare this Obama mask to other Obama masks.
TELL THEM HOW YOU REALLY FEEL! I have!
This skit has been around since the 1960s when Lyndon Johnson was the “dummy”. I worked rodeos then and saw it often.
How the skit works.
Rodeo clowns work in teams. One yells he is going to bring out a dummy for the bulls to hit, he then drags out the dummy, often with the mask of a current politician, and props it up with a broomstick.
When the bull come out, often the bull will buck away from the dummy.
The the next bull and rider may buck toward the dummy in which the dummy jumps to life, grabs the broomstick, whops the bull on the butt, and runs for the fence with the bull after him. This gives a thrown rider a chance to get away in the opposite direction.
The audience always loves it.
The WhiteHouse needs to get those pics.
