Nice quote by a Missouri state fair goer:
It's all the media's fault.
I'm half tempted to answer by just reposting all the pictures right there. The phrase phony scandal has been floating around, looking for something to attach to... well, we found it, in the Missouri State Fair.
Wow if some of those IRS agents had just worn Obama masks we might have a true investigation!!!!
Or Benghazi attackers!
The media and the Dems have gone way over the top to lionize and beatified Obama.
In a way it is sort of sick and scary in that it looks like what the Marxists in the USSR, Chinia, North Korea, and Cuba did for their leaders. Which is ironic because one of the
beliefs in Marxism is about the collective and not the individual.
Examples of Obama Idol Worship
Still a rodeo. Still a clown. Still benign, to funny (even if in poor taste).
SNL has crossed this 'line' a thousand times, a thousand different ways, and its always still just funny.
End of *story*
(* as if there was even one).
Check out this racist that also wore an Obama mask
The more I think about it the more I think that Obama and the rodeo clown could trade places and we would be no worse off.
The clown should NOT have worn the mask. It was an insult to Rodeo Clowns everywhere.
He's not qualified to be a rodeo clown either...
But he is a Clown-he would just be afraid of the bulls and would get someone killed. The man can't do anything of value.
Republican columnist - and Floridian - Kathleen Parker in today's Washington Post:
Question: If a black person wears a George W. Bush mask, is he racist? The next logical question answers the first: What if the clown wears a Bush mask at an event attended primarily by blacks and invites the crowd to cheer for the bulls?
This unlikely event would feel offensive for the same reasons the recent clown event did. The Missouri rodeo audience was mostly white and the masked man in the ring was depicting a black man. This changes everything we think about humor, about clowns and about good old-fashioned fun.
Just as N-jokes are no longer funny to almost anyone, placing a black man in the arena like an unarmed gladiator isn’t amusing. As much as we aspire to racial harmony, we have centuries of history to overcome, including the mob-inspired lynching of black men, and this is what so many saw in the clown skit. Memory conquers humor. ....
This is where political commentary becomes something else. Frightening. We all know what happens when the mob is empowered, especially when further emboldened by the excuse of humor. Few statements are more dishonest than “It’s just a joke.”
I am the last person who would suggest that irreverence be censored or punished — or that clowns be sensitized. The excessively reverent are far scarier to me than those who would die laughing. Political satire is, in fact, a public service inasmuch as it channels aggression that otherwise might find bloody expression.
But a civil society should find reprehensible even mock violence against a president, especially one who belongs to a minority that was once targeted for state-sanctioned violence.
I sincerely doubt that the rodeo clown was motivated by racial hatred. I also doubt that President Obama much cared, except for how his daughters might feel about it. Or, to be cynical, about the degree to which public outrage accrued to his political advantage. I even give the benefit of the doubt to those who cheered the bulls as being inspired by political rather than racial animus."
I have to wonder if you gave the Bush daughters as much consideration when their father was attacked for being stupid and a war criminal by the left. Sadly the children can't be sheltered from the hate their political parents receive. If it's that important to Barry and Michelle then they should have stayed out of the spotlight.
Please, the Mighty Magnificent (isn't he just perfectly gorgeous to see) Emperor, The Grate and Powerfuless, El Jefe, cannot be the butt of any jokes, nor be made fun of in any way. Any attempt to do so will first, be properly exploited and conjured into something it wasn't, and second, the person caught doing it will be publicly castrated and branded as a racial escape goat.
You people will show the proper respect, proper decorum, and proper emotion for the MME,TG&P,EJ, at all times . . . or else.
somebody re-post those Bush and Reagan pictures for Row. He still does not get it.
It's both amusing and sad to see the same people who can't understand black's supporting democrats by over 90% in elections being so tone deaf to the racial overtones in events they support and their own comments. I don't remember any democratic congressman or party spokesman supporting faux lynchings of W and those protests didn't even have racial overtones like the Missouri rodeo. Some just can't help n themselves as they embarrass themselves and one of the countries two major parties, and further cement their future minority status, approaching peripheral status.
Take a step back from political motivations and consider -- there are supposed Americans that apparently believe this guy should be put in prison for the rodeo performance. That. Is. Sick. There are not two sides to that. That is sick, and that it is anti-American goes without saying.
No, the guy should obviously not go to prison.
Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for an explanation from the guy on this thread who claimed this proves Obama is a tyrant.
Many things make him a tyrant -- he is the very soul of de Tocqueville's soft despot -- but the issue here is clearly the near religious fantacism and irrational race-hustling behind the mob. His fault is that he is not uttering a single word to mitigate things, where a better man -- even feeling insulted -- would give the "hey hey, a bad joke is still a joke" talk to simmer things down.
But anyone calling for the sort of investigations that this thread started with are saying he should maybe go to prison off this, and that is disgusting.
Nothing more than a ploy to divert attention from Obama's IRS criminal activity and Clinton's embezzlement from their foundation.
