Cheers to the rodeo clown in Missouri
Renew America ^ | 8-17-13 | Sylvia Thomas

Posted on 08/17/2013 8:07:42 PM PDT by ReformationFan

The hubbub generated by unhinged leftists, especially black unhinged leftists, over the Missouri rodeo clown's act with the Obama mask is breathtakingly idiotic. I only wish that I were able to contact that gentleman to applaud him for giving his audience something about which to cheer. From my childhood memory of circus clowns, that is what clowns do.

Nothing was more disgusting about this fiasco than the fact (if I heard correctly) that the clown was booted out of his job, and Missourians did not rise up to demand that he not be let go. This fact, coupled with the close-running second of an NAACP group demanding that the Justice Department investigate the clown's behavior as hate speech, is enough to drive a sane person over the edge.

One commentator at the Eagle Rising blog site, although chiding the clown's opposers for going overboard, still felt it necessary to describe the behavior as "stupid" and "tacky." My take is that the behavior was neither stupid nor tacky. It was either an entertainer donning a president's mask, as so many entertainers have done with other presidents, to entertain; or It was an American's way of using the tools of his trade (clown) to show his obvious disgust with what Barack Obama is doing to this country. Maybe it was a bit of both, but either way, he has every right in a free (at the moment) country to ply his trade.

How long any of us will have the right to express ourselves freely is debatable, at the rate the nation is declining. Right now, however, there is no law saying you cannot be disgusted by a person holding the office of President. As long as you do not threaten that person's physical well-being, which this man did not do.

This crap will continue to go on until someone stands up and tells the race baiters to go to hell. We are wussified.

The entire action exposed many Missourians to be gutless wonders. How did the State that gave us the brave and courageous people of Joplin stoop so low as to remove a rodeo CLOWN for doing what he was supposed to do?

As I recall, there were PLENTY of people who were disgusted by the previous occupant of the White House, and to the best of my recollection not ONE of them got fired on account of it. As I also remember, a certain lady who might very well be your next Dear Leader once screeched that dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Maybe those were her exact words, maybe not, but at his point in time what difference does it make? /sarcasm;)

The fact is this came up and the state courts agreed this is “racism” since at least 15 years age...its nothing new

Wussification is not a new phenomena

its okay to put Bush's head on a stake in Game of Thrones, as I've heard, or to wear his mask at a rodeo, but no our precious dear hitler....

This is the same state that didn’t have a problem with Mel Carnahan once performing in blackface, but then again, he was a Democrat, so he got a pass.

Hoping there will be some trick-or-treaters as rodeo clowns in an 0bama mask.

I was in Seattle this weekend and on a tram with 95% whites. My wife asked me to describe without looking the person who was talking so loud and crass. I got it write. She wasn’t one of the 95%.

Allen Tombs on Fox’s “Newswatch” today was complaining about racism shown in the exaggerated negro characteristics of the clown’s mask - of course, it was a characterization, so there were bound to be some exaggerated features - I remember all the Nixon masks and cartoons in the newspaper which used to feature his upturned “skijump” nose - no complaints of nosism were heard......

MO people believe in McCaskill, as the LA folk like Landrieu, and I think their liberalism shows through.

The clown made fun of government parasites, and now the government is using blacks to get a “legitimate democratic wish” to illegally crush dissent and criticism.

Cult of the personality. This was bound to happen with blacks. I honestly believe that if Obama stood up and said he was satan incarnate he would still get 99% of the black vote. Don’t make fun of the demi-god.

The moxie is when we tell the race baiters to come to heaven. Anyone can tell them to go to hell. Even Satan tells them to go to hell. Yeah it’s nonintuitive! Because we’ve lost sight of a heaven that is a very HEAVY heaven. We’ve let heaven be attenuated to cotton candy status. FOOEY.

Speaking of Halloween, we need “invade” party goods stores and buy up 0bama masks, something similar to the Chick-Fil-A “buycott”. This Halloween I was thinking of dressing up as an Elvis Zombie (kinda like Viva Las Vegas meets Night of the Living Dead :) ) but an 0bama get-up would be a good “plan B”.

To quote the character Dr. Ellis Cheever in the movie Contagion, “Someone doesn’t have to weaponize the bird flu. The birds are doing that …”

Well, you no longer have to parody these people who take great umbrage at the rodeo clown “disrespecting“ Obama. They do it themselves.

They’ve “weaponized” umbrage.
