Skip to comments.NAACP state head: Missouri rodeo clown committed a ‘hate crime’ by wearing Obama mask
Posted on 08/16/2013 10:56:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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.
Wearing a mask is a “hate crime”? ROTFL! What a retard. Looks like it won’t be long before the advanced “colored people” have Halloween declared a “hate crime” in this country.
I would hate to suggest it....but there will be comments and signs over the remaining three years....with the “rodeo-clown” symbol used for this President. Someone will eventually make up a country-and-western tune....entitled: rodeo-clown.
Keep pushing, you racist azzes, and you’ll get the race war you so clearly want. But that fire will burn EVERYONE, including you.

Liberalism a mental illness. No joke. They have no idea about the forces they’re messing with...
“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.”
They may think so in their delusion (liberalism IS a mental disorder), but they’ll be wrong. The flames they are fanning for personal gain will leave few unscathed.
What an ignoramus.
Maybe what someone needs to do is come out with a
mask of Obama that’s white, then it wouldn’t be
I agree. You make great points but I must admit the idea of rewarding them with a set aside hunting season would be delightful as well. :) Evil people.
Let’s drive them nuts!
[this is just bogus...all Dobes are conservatives]
To Mary Ratliffe: You’re an insipid b!tch. Profile that, you entitlement whore.
I think that’s the perfect way to mock Obama.
I also don’t quite get it: are the Blacks really that stupid?
Unless they’re really sure the whole martial law thing is going to save them after they push their juvenile outrage one too many times, they gotta understand that they’d probably only survive about five days in the race war they’re agitating for, and that’s if only the Hispanics or only the Asians mobilize. If the Whites get off their couches I’d only give them about 36 hours before they become a really minor minority. Do they really want to push these tantrums a whole lot further? Nobody’s buying it, and my general sense is that patience is wearing thin out there.
YES they are that stupid, but never fear, white people are equally stupid.
People never realize that hell gets out of hand!
Hell is averted by letting heaven back in.
Heaven is welcomed by ceasing from saying no to it. Heaven is eager to come in. It’s we humans who are saying no by doing the do-si-do with the devil. If we change the partner we swing to God, then marvelous things will happen again.
OK... we humans => us humans
You need to get hold of some better drugs, my friend.
Hey, I’m high on the Holy Spirit. Yeah you’ll think I’m crazy and I don’t mind. God has made me sane.
By the way you know yourself... see your tag... where “primitive spirits” (evil) lead. I just followed the light UPWARD.
Martial law? The active, reserve and national guard military
are also majority white. When you delve into combat arms units it gets even more Caucasian. TSA, no matter how much ammo they’ve got, are not a military or even paramilitary force. All the police and SWAT teams in the country would last maybe 2 days if the SHTF in any serious way. Who will enforce this hypothetical martial law?
Well, it was actually not I who followed the light. That doesn’t give the credit due to God. I essentially prayed to the Lord to be glorified in an area of very difficult sin. The Lord answered and gave me not only victory over that very difficult sin but He gave me the view from heaven! Talk about a holy yeehaw! I now realize that the victory was achieved by filling me with His light, which He is pressing on a world that still doesn’t want it... I was a rare exception in that I begged hard for it and in the right way. But He is busy setting the world up to teach it yet another lesson on letting the light in.
This is a fair description of every image of Zero on the Internet.
Are they all hate crimes? This guy is too dumb to breathe.
What happened to “imitation is the greatest form of flattery”? A clown imitating another, bigger clown POTUS.
This ap-cray will result in hesitation to have another liberal/lefty black as president anytime soon - BHO and handlers are so stupid. But, why should they care??
Why would we willingly go thru this nonsense again, in our life-time??!
We’d better not forget - surely we won’t - - ?
Oops I forgot - Obamalong ‘won’ by fraud. . .
A rodeo clown wearing a mask of a high profile person because of just that. He chose a mask of someone highly recognizable and current - color be dam_ed.
I’ve not heard it suggested, but if the clown also happens to detest the prez and chose to mock him, SO WHAT??? He should have ordered the mask in milky-white???
The resultant treatment of this rodeo clown is scandalous.
A GENuine scandal at that . .
Obama wears obama mask on Saturday Nighy Live skit
A Halloween mask is a hate crime? WTF, anyway? Are these people nuts? (as if I need to ask!)
