White Presidents, on the other hand, are free game.
A rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask during a show at the Missouri State Fair found himself banned forever.
SEDALIA, Mo. (KSDK) – The rodeo clown who donned an Obama mask during a show at the Missouri State Fair over the weekend has been permanently banned from performer there ever again.
In a statement released to the media Monday afternoon, the commission apologized again for the rodeo clown’s actions and said they were inappropriate and not keeping with the fair’s standards.
The commission unanimously voted to ratify a decision by Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe to ban the rodeo clown who wore the mask. The clown was not identified.
Albert S. Watkins, attorney for Mark Ficken, the rodeo announcer at the Missouri State Fair, said the clown went off script and was the one who made the controversial comments about the president.
A witness who provided NewsChannel 5 with video and pictures of the clown claimed the announcer “whipped the audience into a lather” by repeatedly asking attendees if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.”
Democrats immediately and predictably called the incident racist
“They mentioned the president’s name, I don’t know, 100 times. It was sickening. It was feeling like some kind of Klan rally you’d see on TV,” said Beam.
and a call for violence against Obama.
I’ve written it a million times. Liberals have ZERO long term memory. In 1994 President George HW Bush was depicted as a dummy target for a rodeo.
Politicians and the national media jumped all over the incident, deeming it to be inappropriate and disrespectful. However, very few are acknowledging that what took place in Sedalia, Mo., on Saturday night was a duplication of a stunt that has been performed many times before.
In fact, it was documented back in 1994 that a dummy wearing a President George H.W. Bush mask, propped up by a broomstick, was employed as a decoy during a bull riding riding contest.
One member of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association who was at Saturday’s event told the Associated Press that there was nothing offensive or unusual about the rodeo clowns actions — he was trying to look like a dummy and that rodeo clowns have long performed such acts, often imitating sitting presidents.
Even Bubba was reportedly used as a rodeo dummy:
Suddenly the techno music and pyrotechnics return, and a bull is let loose. He cuts a fine figure against the spraying lights. Bucking bulls are the ultimate rodeo event, but like a roller coaster ride, it’s short and a little anticlimactic. After throwing its rider, one bull gores a dummy that’s wearing a Bill Clinton facemask. In spite of all the ceremony, the rodeo ends abruptly and we rush to the car.
And the difference is painfully obvious. HW and Bubba are white. That makes insulting and calling for violence against them acceptable. Only when the black President is used in a similar fashion does umbrage erupt.
And speaking of calling for violence, here’s a reminder of how W was treated:
No, their thoughts are not focused on killing jihadists. Their dreams lie with killing George W. Bush. The mainstreaming of presidential assassination chic is on.
In her new book, “Peace Mom,” Cindy Sheehan confesses on page 29 that she has imagined going back in time and killing the infant George W. Bush in order to prevent the Iraq War. It’s the moonbat version of pre-emption. Sheehan admits she has entertained this infanticidal fantasy “often.” That ice-cream-and-coffee hunger strike is getting to her head.
And if you need more, here ya go.
You can’t help but wonder how the left would react to a movie depicting an assassination of Obama. The left loved the Bush assassination movie. It received the top award at the 2006 Toronto Film Fextival.
Do you imagine a movie about the assassination of Barack Obama receiving a top award anywhere?
Or would that be racist and a call for inciting violence?
The White House press corps has been reduced to a sniveling, whimpering bunch of weenies who have been brow-beaten into total compliance. Now for the rest of America.
