Skip to comments.NAACP state head: Missouri rodeo clown committed a ‘hate crime’ by wearing Obama mask

President of the Missouri chapter of the NAACP Mary Ratliff claimed in a radio interview Thursday that the Obama mask-donning rodeo clown committed a hate crime, CBS St. Louis reports.
I think that a hate crime occurred, Mary Ratliff said to KXNT Radio. I think a hate crime occurs when you use a persons race to depict who they are and to make degrading comments, gestures, et cetera, against them.
Ratliffs definition stands in stark contrast to the actual federal hate crimes statue, which would require rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling to willfully cause bodily injury to President Barack Obama with fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device.
Ratliff did not indicate if Gessling had attempted to attack the president with fire or other weaponry, but did say the Secret Service should investigate the matter nonetheless.
When taxpayer money is utilized to discredit and be disrespectful to our president, whether he be black, white, Hispanic, Latina it is an outrage, she continued.
Ratliff said she believes the mean rodeo act requires that the Department of Justice dedicate more taxpayer dollars into investigating Gesslings feelings about Obama.....

More like a disgusted crime.
Well then, Halloween should be mighty interesting this year...
You know this had to have happened at a rodeo because of all the bullsh*t be flung about. All the crap Bush was subjected to including movies about him being assassinated and that was okay because he was a Republican, but wearing a Obama mask makes someone racist? These morons belittle actual racism when it happens by this insane defense of our communist resident from parody and rightful dissent.
the biggest racists and hate crime purveyors these days are the black whines in the NAACP and all the other blatant race baiters in this country , led by the Prezzy hisself .
git urs hea :
We should ALL acquire these and wear them as often as we can irritate the race baiters with them .
I’m just wondering how the NAACP thinks Obama could have been mocked without using his race?
works both ways. either it works both ways or it doesn’ t work either way.
It’s just business. She’s simply using the incident to stir the pot. The real hustlers know full well that they are selling carefully tended bovine excrement, but that’s the nature of the hustle. It’s how they pay the rent, etc.
They probably know, or at least suspect, they’re skating close to the edge, but they really don’t have a choice, not the way they see it. Without race hustling, they don’t have anything to sell which means they lose their wealth, their social clout, and everything else that matters to them.
Oh, no doubt they do know that there may come a time when the hammer drops, the riots start, and things get very nasty. And you can bet when they do they will be in the middle of a crowd, egging them on, but far enough away from the fray to be safe.
Of course, you can also expect them to do a quick vanishing act if things get too hot. First rule of any successful con artist is to keep an exit clear in case you need to lam out of town ahead of the posse.
“When taxpayer money is utilized to discredit and be disrespectful to our president, whether he be black, white, Hispanic, Latina it is an outrage, she continued.
The clown used taxpayer money in this rodeo skit???
My head hurts from reading this stupidity.
This is getting so stupid it’s beginning to hurt my feelings.
Good point, there isn’t a generic image to use to mock a sitting president, without using something that resembles him, and if he is black, that mask will have to reflect that, just as Bush’s mask was white.
The President should say, “stop it!” But he is so thin-skinned, instead feeds the nonsense...
“Oh, no doubt they do know that there may come a time when the hammer drops, the riots start, and things get very nasty. And you can bet when they do they will be in the middle of a crowd, egging them on, but far enough away from the fray to be safe.”
And all the while, blaming it on conservatives, republicans, the Tea Party, Chick Fil A, Christians and anyone else who doesn’t toe their line. I’m sick sick sick of it.
Why would the resident say stop it? This is what he wants something to stir the racial pot despite the fact that there is nothing racial about this.
He is not thin skinned but he loves feeding it.
