Mo. State Fair bans rodeo clown who mocked Obama
yahoo ^ | 8/12/13 | David Leib

Posted on 08/12/2013 4:19:02 PM PDT by Nachum

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.

The rodeo clown won't be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday's event.

The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside. Spectators were asked if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull." Many in the audience responded enthusiastically.

Numerous Missouri officials denounced the act after video and photos were posted online. Some Democratic Missouri lawmakers suggested Monday that there should be financial consequences for the fair.

This story should be repeated and posted as often as possible, around the world, if possible linking to the pictures of the mask and the broomstick.

0bummer is going to pay many times over for that phone call he had someone make to Missouri. Couldn't happen to more ungainly weenie.

A lifetime ban? Seriously?

Soviet Missouri has ruled, apparently.

Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association

If they have any self respect at all, the Rodeo Cowboys should demand that the rodeo clown be fully reinstated with an apology.

If Obama were smart, he'd pick up the phone, call the fair officials, tell them that they're overreacting, and get the guy's job back.

Anybody wanna take bets?

A Nixon mask, a Reagan mask, or a GW mask and we never would have heard the story . In fact if we did it would have been in jest an great fun.

For crying out loud! Bet they didn’t pull that sort of censorship when Bush was president, or Reagan, or pick-a-Republican.

Yep, late-night comedians can broadcast “Snipers Wanted” on photos of Bush, or film Bush assassination-fantasy movies and have it be called art; or, hang Palin in effegy, or stand-up comics make jokes about gang-raping Palin, or tweet that she needs to be assassinated...

But the very MOMENT that Obama, the Messiah, gets mocked, and it’s time to bring out the guillotine.

I agree with the ruling. Clowns were mocked by wearing Obama’s face.

bull’s eye performance by one of the great rodeo clowns. The extreme over reaction by blatant hypocrits should bring this rodeo to an abrupt halt. Cowboys are not pansies.

All the horses at the rodeo should have an Obama sticker on their rear ends. Then when someone asks why, the cowboy just says, “ Because only a horse’s ass would have an Obama sticker.”
