Send in the Obama Clowns
Frontpage Mag ^ | August 15, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 08/15/2013 3:45:08 AM PDT by dontreadthis

On Saturday night in Sedalia, a Missouri city with a population that would fit into Arrowhead Stadium four times over, the entire nation was shaken when a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask performed his usual routine. Toward the end of Obama’s first term a tornado had torn through Sedalia blowing off roofs and destroying a school bus barn, but that was nothing compared to this.

The governor of Missouri stated that the performance, which involved Obama being chased by a bull, did not “reflect the values of Missourians”. He did not clarify whether the other times that a rodeo clown was chased around by a bull did reflect those values.

The lieutenant governor “implored” the governor to “hold the people responsible for the other night accountable”. The best way to do that may be with a Un-Missourian Activities Committee. Senator McCarthy may have subpoenaed actors, but UMAC’s Obama clowns can subpoena rodeo clowns.

Senator McCaskill called it “shameful.” Congressman William Clay called it, “an ugly face of intolerance”. It was unclear whether he was referring to the clown, the man whose face he was wearing or a country where intolerant mockery of intolerable politicians was no longer tolerated.

The Missouri State Fair apologized and banned the unnamed rodeo clown for life and announced that they are reviewing their contract with the Missouri Rodeo Cowboys Association. Their next contract will hopefully have an ironclad “No Mocking Obama” clause in place to prevent another tragedy from taking place.

The announcer has resigned as president of the Cowboys Association, even though he had yet to be caught smuggling assault rifles to Mexican drug dealers or lying about a terrorist attack on an American diplomatic facility, and may also be forced to resign as Superintendent of the Boonville School District.

The vicious monster claimed that it wasn’t his voice on the tape saying “he’s gonna getcha, getcha!” but did concede that he said, “Watch out for that bull, Obama.” Several news organizations are currently analyzing the tape, as if it came from a gentleman named Zapruder, to determine the voice behind the rodeo thoughtcrime.

The Kansas City Star described the bull run as “borderline illegal”. “The U.S. Secret Service takes threats against the president seriously,” its editorial said. “While the president himself was in no danger here, it’s the kind of stupid activity that could give nuts ideas about harming the president.”

It’s comforting to learn that Obama experienced no personal danger from the rodeo clown. Even the most creative Hollywood villain would find his imagination stressed to the limit trying to recreate the Missouri State Fair as an assassination plot.

But the Star’s Yael T. Abouhalkah is right to remain vigilant against the threat of someone smuggling an angry bull on board Air Force One during its next jaunt to Martha’s Vineyard or hurling a furious Red Angus from a catapult into the White House.

In a world where Socialist is a racial slur, why can’t bull be an assassination plot?

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. And sometimes liberty is the price of eternal vigilance against subversive rodeo clowns.

A clown, perhaps the same one, or another of the Spartacean clowns crowding the arena, was heard to say, “I know I’m a clown, he just run around acting like one and doesn’t know he is one.”

The unknown rodeo clown, like so many court jesters throughout the ages, was expressing the very subversive sentiment that the only difference between the clown and the crown is that the former knows what he is and the latter doesn’t.

In Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Olivia tells her steward, “Oh, you are sick of self-love, Malvolio, and taste with a distempered appetite. To be generous, guiltless, and of free disposition is to take those things for bird-bolts that you deem cannon-bullets. There is no slander in an allowed fool, though he do nothing but rail.”

Like Malvolio, Obama and his supporters are anything but generous and guiltless. And so they take every bird-bolt as a cannonade. A rodeo clown quickly becomes a national crisis. The pettiest insult to a petty ego must be avenged, punished and transformed into a teachable moment.

There are no “all-licensed fools” allowed anymore, not even at a state fair, a place that no one could imagine Obama paying a visit to (barring an election or an exploitable school shooting) because fools like Obama and Malvolio who do not know that they are fools do not tolerate fools gladly.

A strong ruler kept all-licensed fools who would tell him what he did not wish to hear, but a weak ruler would only keep allowed fools who would mock his rivals and his enemies, but never him.

If you want to see allowed fools capering on stage, tune in to Saturday Night Live where grotesque depictions of Obama’s enemies are the norm, but where, until recently, Obama was played in uncomfortable blackface by Fred Armisen, a white liberal, as a man who is just too good to be mocked.

But what can’t be seen on the stage of Saturday Night Live must go underground to the Missouri State Fair. In every totalitarian country, the jokes that can’t be told are told anyway in secret places, between friends and to rural and working class audiences. The Soviet anecdote was born out of such restrictions.

“Premier Andropov,” one anecdote went, “I heard you collect political anecdotes. How many do you have so far?”

“A whole Gulag,” was the answer. An eagle-eyed Daily Kossack with a camera has added one rodeo clown and one cowboy president to the Obama gulag.

Unlike community organizers, cowboy presidents however are capable of bearing the stings and arrows of rodeo clowns.

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.

Maybe the best way to describe life in the US, before the dawn of the OSSR, is with another Soviet anecdote.

A Moscow cop sees a man poking a hole in the tire of the American ambassador’s car. The vandal puts his mouth on the hole and begins sucking in the escaping air.

“What are you doing?” the cop demands.

Sheepishly the man tells him, “I wanted to breathe the air of freedom.”

Now that even those of us in Sedalia, Missouri are choking on foul Moscow smogs, I wonder whose tires we’ll have to poke through to breathe the air of freedom.

This is close to perfect. The humor on the surface makes it an engaging piece of writing. The underlying reality is actually terrifying.

I am pretty sure by now that it is against the law to sell an Obama mask.
Like Muhammed his image must be protected., he is a god.

This article explains the bad night that Missouri had.

The shame of Missouri is not the clown who appeared with an Obama mask , but the fear it brought on those who cowerd when it happened. Missouri shamed itself. It’s leadership all soiled themselves over a joke. Are we so frightened of black backlash that we have lost all sense of America’s freedoms.

We have watched as blacks harassed a Hispanic for self-defense, we have watched as the Congress of the United States cowers in fear of using their powers to slow the Executive Orders of a Muslim Half breed and place some semblance of common sense in this country, while we destroy our military with Homosexuals and Women in combat, while we screw over our veterans, and screw over the whole populace with an unworkable heath care bill.

Missouri, has shown us their yellow stripe. I thought better of them.

Well, as best as I understand it, Halloween is a time where temporary escapees from hell (or their depictions) are on the prowl and display. So why not scads of Barack Obama masks this coming October 31, it would only be in keeping with that chilling, creepy, weird, fiendish, freaky unholy-day.

But more seriously, yes this stuff is from hell! But our true fight is not against ghosts, witches, or warlocks. We are fighting demons, which get their evil power by cutting off God’s light.

How to fight it: pray for the exaltation of God. Even in Barack Obama himself. Barack could really pop a lot of these evil bubbles himself, if he let God reach through him and ask these folks who are worshiping him as King Of The Generic Black Men to cut it out, please. That his dignity comes from elsewhere.

Anyhow, have a good night (or morning as case may be).

This needs to 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!!!

It’s a bing or google away, but why.

It’s going to take military strength love... not hate... to get Barack and his idolaters out of their spiritual hole. And we will likely see Barack depart on schedule in 2017, but the folks who idolized him will be right there, so the game can’t be played by just waiting out the clock.

When Oprah accused a Swiss clerk of racism because she thought the clerk wouldn't show her a purse that cost $38,000 because she is black, the clerk called Oprah "a liar."

Oprah forgot that white people in other countries don't cower to racism accusations and Oprah backed down. All of a sudden she didn't want to talk about it any more.

Oprah needs to take Jesse and Al to Switzerland and Missouri needs a few Swiss purse store clerks.

As long as he was portraying a white guy at the time, you betcha!

Remember, the PEOPLE attending the performance were responding favorably to it. So when you say Missouri shamed itself, it’s true for the “leaders” and the those in ultimate charge of the entertainment activities. But the people in the seats would seem to side with the performance and they would be the ordinary folks of Missouri.

I realize that, I also realize that it isn’t only Missouri, but a problem all over the United States of America.

The fact that this man is half black has virtually and realistically insured that any question of his competence, abilities, or political motivations, are out of bounds and are accepted by the frightened whites who cater to the entitlement voters.
Those who suffer white guilt, those who refuse to see what is happening in ghetto’s where killing, murders, and beatings are common occurences to blacks and where whites dare not to tread. Yet when one White-Hispanic (whatever the hell that is) shoots one of them who is trying to beat him to death,it is a major event.

It’s time whites opened their eyes to what is going on.
We are in the clutch’s of a Racist president, with Muslim , and Homosexual leanings, who is appointing those of the same ilk to high offices such as the Attorney General, and Homeland security. White people in this nations today are under attack and almost half of us have already surrendered.

I give you the cowards in Missouri as an example.

I certainly know that not all in Missouri are cowards or devotee’s to the Obama religion, and I am certain they are ashamed of what is happening, as I am ashamed of what is happening in my State of Maryland. Where we have as Governor a POS as sorry as Obama.

A few years ago, in the well liked movie, Point Break, the storyline went like this:

In the coastal town of Los Angeles, a gang of bank robbers call themselves the ex-presidents. commit their crimes while wearing masks of ex-presidents Reagan, Carter, Nixon and Johnson.

No one went nuts like our current Obozo loving idiots.
