NAACP calls on Justice Dept., Secret Service to investigate rodeo clown flap
Washington Times ^ | August 14, 2013 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 08/15/2013 2:21:09 AM PDT by grundle

The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama’s face...

... the fallout so far has included the resignation of the head of Missouri’s rodeo-clown organization, and the announcement of Missouri State Fair officials that all rodeo clowns will now have to take sensitivity training as a condition of their employment.

... the clown who actually performed the skit... has been banned for life from state rodeo performances.

Investigating a rodeo clown will solve all our problems. No wait. I meant, investigating the azzclown in the white hut and banning him from holding public office for life will solve all our problems.

The NAACP is strangely silent though when it comes to real issues affecting race.

Liberal hypocrisy, like stupidity, knows no color.

This is the kind of thing they do when there’s something they want to draw everyone’s attention away from...like benghazi, the IRS scandal, the NSA scandal, the Clinton scandal, seal team 6 scandal, etc.

So everyone associated with the rodeo should tell the great state of Missouri to shove it and not go to their silly event.

What a bunch of whining idiots...why would you want to go and subject yourself to that crap?

Plenty of other palces to go and be...or to run a paralell event...

Dunno...sounds like some folks in Mo. got their heads on too tight and their cohones in a box.

When the backlash begins, things are going to get really ugly for the racebaiters and the queers. I think the average American is really getting fed up with this crap. The “American Dream” is collapsing for a lot of normal people and families are being hurt. And all the government cares about (Democrat and Republican) is nonsense about rodeo clowns and boycotting the Olympics.

"Twenty years and a whole other nation ago, a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair not only wore a George H.W. Bush mask, but even swapped out a dummy in the same mask that the bull tore apart on the spot.

The nation did not shudder, the politicians did not call for the clown’s head and there was no secret service investigation of a possible assassination-by-bull plot by a gang of rogue rodeo clowns.

But that was America; a strange and different country. It was not perfect, but rodeo clowns, comedians and your neighbor Bob felt free to mock the President of the United States without worrying that the heavy hand of manufactured outrage would descend on their necks.

It is hard to describe that America to a younger generation that has never lived in it and has never known anything other than the liberal morality mobs of the Obama age eager to pounce on some offense of heteronormative white privilege committed against liberal conformity."


This needs to be repeated over, and over again to any and everyone who thinks the BS going on in Missouri is anything but more race baiting in support of the CLOWN in the White House!!!

Missouri leadership made fools of themselves over this so it isn’t surprising that the NAACP wants in on it. They want to make fools of themselves too.

It is an easy task for them as they are mostly fools to begin with. They all voted for this insult to the human race.

What else do you expect? And what the hell do they think is going to be accomplished by investigating the incident? It was just a rodeo clown mking fun of an inept a$$clown who’s destroying our economy, our standard of living, our status as a superpower. and making us the enemy of everyone in the world. He fully deserves to be ridiculed. It was just comic relief. Get over it, lefties. Stop with the feigned indignation.

I’ve always wondered...If they’re so worried about racial issues why do they keep the word, “Colored”, in their name. You’d think they’d change that if they were really concerned abouit the disparity between races.

It is literally time to start putting some folks in prison at hard labor for all of this. It's time. You are NOT going to tell us what is funny and what is not funny. You are NOT going to intimidate us into not criticizing or making fun of ANY politician. If you want to ridicule, criticize and make fun of those with whom you disagree, fine. However, if you want to punish others who do such to politicians without overt physical threats, you need to be punished for inciting violence. What do you want, NAACP, and others like you? War? Are you stupid?

Stop and think for a second. What if conservatives decided to launch these kinds of attacks for mocking conservative politicians? We would have riots in the streets. Maybe it's time for riots in the streets over this outrage. The problem is, we don't have time to riot and protest like you do because we are so busy working paying taxes to feed, clother, shelter and healthcare the useful idiots who sit on their public housing front porches and respond to your beck and call. Who has enslaved whom?

Leave_________the__________man__________alone.

Let’s see. They’re boycotting MO, TX (James Byrd), FL (TM), AZ because of immigration, and all the rest of the states that have stand your ground laws.

What states can blacks live in and travel to any more?

The NAACP has jumped the shark, and has lost any pretense of respectability or legitimacy. They should not expect to be taken seriously when they conduct themselves like clowns. The NAACP should be treated with the contempt that it deserves.

Don’t laugh, folks. Libs have worked themselves up into a frenzy over this, and we know that once they get their teeth into something they don’t let go. How long before this guys identity, address, soc security number, etc., is “accidentally” released by the media? Undoubtedly he and his family will be getting death threats. And his parents, too. If he has any sense he will get the hell out of this stinking country.

Apparently fair goers are siding against the clown because they are still going to the fair instead of boycotting it.

Of all the presidents before this one, you could mock them if they weren’t doing their job to your liking.

With this one though... it means you have evil racism in your heart and therefore are a threat to society and must be removed.

Damn, why didn’t they think of putting a black president in there earlier?
