State Fair Rodeo Clown Dresses Like Obama, Announcer Calls For Him To Be Run Over By Bull

Share This Story

During George Bush’s eight years in office, the Left became positively medieval in its approach to envisioning his suffering and degradation: he was burned in effigy, hanged in effigy, depicted being beheaded, morphed with monkeys and Hitler, assassinated in a movie, and even ended up on a major HBO TV show with his head on a pike. Conservatives didn’t like it, but they accepted it because that’s life in a free country. When Obama is the president, however, the rules are different.

That’s why it’s a front page story cloaked in absolute absolute outrage that a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair put on a Barack Obama mask, while the announcer asked the audience to holler out for the “President” to be run down by a bull. We’re not saying that was a nice thing to do, but up until “St. Obama” became president, it was pretty standard political fare in America, least during the Bush years.

As always, the Left is trying to shut down open political debate by claiming that this was “racism.” When worse sins were visited on pretend Bush’s, it was free speech. Now, however, thou shalt not say anything negative about the President.

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill just might have won the hypocrite of the year for her performance regarding the incident. When it came to President Bush, there were no limits on McCaskill’s rhetoric. For example, in 2008, she had this to say: “George Bush let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black.”

Now, though, with Obama in office, clowning around (literally) when it comes to the President is verboten: “’The young Missourians who witnessed this stunt learned exactly the wrong lesson about political discourse – that somehow it’s ever acceptable to, in a public event, disrespect, taunt, and joke about harming the President of our great nation.”

Really, Claire? Then why didn’t we hear a word from you when this kind of stuff was going on?

At no time, ever, did a media outlet decry these threats and imaginings. Heck, at no time — ever — did the media even acknowledge these threats.

Unless you live in a socialist “paradise,” the right to criticize, mock, and humiliate politicians, including the President (who is, after all, the people’s employee) is one of the most important rights we have in America. The newly imposed rule that Obama is above the rough and tumble of American politics is a very disturbing inroad on American freedom.
