Video killed the rodeo clown

Video killed the rodeo clown

A Rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair wore an Obama mask.

The crowd did not want the clown to win.

This video killed the rodeo clown’s career:

Now the clown has been fired … permanently after an outcry from Democratic politicians.

Drudge - Obama Clown fired

AP Rodeo Clown Fired

You know what needs to be done:

Jim Hoft has some background on how clowns were treated when they made fun of Bush.

But this ain’t Bush.

Thou shall not blaspheme!

He was permanently banned for making fun of Obama? That’s pathetic. Missouri, are you going to stand for this?

    ISTR the “Obama Truth Squads” started in Missouri, and that state’s “fusion center” was one of the first to push the “Tea Party Terrorist” lie.

He ridicule Dear Leader. Weep, weep for Dear Leader.

What country you say this happened in?

That’s a career?

And, here I thought if you could burn a flag, because it’s under the First Amendment, then you could wear a mask. Heck, what if you wrap the mask on your “hindquarters? That way, if you’re a “cracker” you’ve got your arse covered.

Did you know Reagan masks were popular when Reagan was president?

Suddenly they’re outlawed? Who makes up these rules?

Hell, boy, everyone knows that the best rodeos are in Texas. And we would love for you to don that mask anytime you want.

Time to boycott the Missouri State Fair.

Revising and extending my remarks, all Rodeo Associations should refuse to participate in any future Missouri State Fairs until this decision is reversed. What if they gave a Rodeo and nobody showed up?

So HBO can put George W Bush’s head on a pike in Game of Thrones and that’s totally cool.(snicker…snicker)
But an Obama rodeo clown? That’s disrespectful!!!

I think we’re seeing who the real clowns are.

So now the American dictatorship has a mask?

That only it and the NSA can use?

They can take away our clowns, but they can’t take away our contempt for this administration and its tactics.

When you are an incompetent clown, you can’t take competent clowns making fun of you.

What a titantic, world-class asshole we have for a president.

pegale al negro – I bet you in Mexico they use the mask

The twitter mob gets another scalp. In the past month or so, they forced the juror in the Zimmerman trial not to write a book. Then they forced CVS and Walgreen’s not to carry the Rolling Stone issue with the Boston bomber’s picture on the cover. Now they get a rodeo clown fired — for clowning around.

This is going to be one stale, boring, monotonous world by the time they’ve intimidated everyone into thinking and speaking in a way that nobody ever gets offended by anything ever.

    I assume it’s somehow related to the blackface ban. But it really means we have a king.

    I don’t care if the world is monotonous, as long as things are even. We simply need to copy their tactics.

My initial thought was of Claire McCaskill complaining that taxpayer money was used to fund this. What is her stand on defunding the NEA and PBS for their funding of several objectional exhibits?

This incident is reminiscent of the incident over “Mirth & Girth” where Chicago politicians literally stormed the Chicago Museum of Art and stole a painting of Harold Washington in underwear. Said politicians later complaining of the defunding of the Chicago Art Museam over an exhibit called “What is the proper way to display an Wmerican flag?”

It is also reminiscent of Tonya Dixon-Neely a teacher who was recorded ywlling at students that they could be arrested for criticizing Obama.

The idiocy of the hypersensitive Obama worshipers is really wearing thin.

Rick the Curmudgeon | August 12, 2013 at 9:30 pm

Did any of the assclowns that complained about the Øbama clown offer to take his place in the areena?
Didn’t think so.

This is Jug-Eared Jaysus we’re talking about. You can’t poke fun at Jug-Eared cuz he ain’t got no sense of humor.

Cult of personality.

Let’s not let the whacko’s feel neglected here:


I wonder if the broom was a Libman?

At least the guy wearing the mask wasn’t beheaded. Remember the Bush Mask used as a beheaded head in Game of Thrones?

This is a phony scandal. The clown should be reinstated with an apology and back pay.

That said, are they more disappointed with the clown or the Joker? This seems to be a classic case of projection.

    I was so annoyed at this outrageous suppression of political dissent that I wrote to Jay Nixon, Claire McCaskill, Peter what’s his name, and the ACLU, pointing out that political speech is protected by the First Amendment.

    What is not funny is that poor old Tuffy is out of a job. That’s real damage, and I hope he sues the pants off this crowd of crybabies.

    And to the person who moaned about “disrespecting the president?” This president doesn’t even respect his own laws, what is there to respect?

Another unemployed victim of Obama.

daylightdisinfectant | August 12, 2013 at 10:43 pm


I have to admit, the next time I watch the real Obama, I am going to imagine him in the ring with “Raging Bull”. It will help me get through the moment.

What this clown and the announcer did was not appropriate for a state sponsored event. All tax payers regardless of their political affiliations contribute to this fair. Making fun of the POTUS to include sticking a broom handle up his butt was a disgusting display. I say good for the people who spoke out against this total lack of respect for the President of the United States. In this country you certainly have a right to free speech but you also have to suffer the consequences when you offend many people. There is probably a local KKK rally available where he can perform.

    Valerie in reply to mwsomerset. | August 13, 2013 at 12:03 am

    Are you one of those buffoons that doesn’t know that masks of the faces of the presidents have been available for decades in the halloween shops?

    NOW you want to complain? After Reagan, Carter, both Bushes and both Clintons have gotten the same treatment?


    Radegunda in reply to mwsomerset. | August 13, 2013 at 2:23 am

    Those who wish they could defend this bad joke of a president nearly always start waving the race talisman – i.e. “How dare you criticize our First Black President!”

    Those who criticize him, by contrast, pay him the respect of holding him to the same standards we would apply to a white president. Remember all the hyperventilating about the “Clinton haters”? Now that the Clintons’ critics are criticizing Obama too, we’re told it’s all because of race – which is patently ludicrous.

    Finrod in reply to mwsomerset. | August 13, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    And I’m *sure* you complained about mockery of George W. Bush when that was going on.


    Pathetic whiner.

mwsomerset, when you suggest “a local KKK rally” to this clown, I think you are assuming that his dislike of the president is racial, not because of his (Obama’s) policies. Might be true, or might not, but racial discord in this country is too serious an issue to throw unproven accusations around. Free speech should always be allowed and racism denounced only when it is really proven. Anyway, the issue should be are political stunts allowed in the rodeo? If not the clown should be censured, if they are, this is just Obama’s turn in the barrel-“politics ain’t beanbag” JFK is supposed to have said.
Personally, though I dislike most of this administration’s policies, I’m not comfortable with these kind of clown acts, but free speech is more important than hurt feelings.

    I’m pretty sure the PRCA and PBR aren’t too concerned about discipline from the Missouri State Fair. I’ve spent a lifetime with horses, from Hunter-Jumpers to Working Cow Horses, and know a few rodeo hands. Never ever heard of this state fandango as a high spot for anyone. Just the fact they react to a clown so sensitively with tax payer money tells me the fair itself should be shut down. They’re not supposed to be one party affairs, or any party affairs. So screw ’em.

      Aridog in reply to Aridog. | August 13, 2013 at 2:44 pm

      Now what would amuse me, and something I’d pay money to watch, would be if Obama himself got in that ring with bulls to distract them from thrown riders. On those days I got stuck with herding steers along on foot, pen to pen, for cutting contests … just steers mind you … scared me half to death, but the tough farm kids moved them along like sheep. I doubt a political animal like Obama would even get in the pen with calves.

I wonder exactly how many of the hypocrites criticizing the Rodeo Clown in this case were outspoken critics of the routine “burning in effigy” occurrences that happened during the George W. Bush administration. They seemed to happen quite frequently, and I seem to remember being told “well, you have to be tolerant of dissent, no matter what disrespectful form it takes.”

Oh, what’s that? Not a single one of these hypocrites made a peep regarding what the Liberal slime were doing to effigies of Bush? Well, that should be entirely telling.

As always: LOUDLY call them out on their hypocrisy and SHAME those criticizing now about their sudden “change of heart” due to the politics of those involved. This means the REPUBLICANS too who think we can change the minds of the Liberal slime who want nothing more than to watch every Conservative burn.

Suddenly dissent is no longer the finest expression of patriotism?

1st Amendment concerns aside, the simple truths of Obama’s unpopularity and incompetence are forbidden topics, as is the fact he just isn’t all that intelligent.

Think about it: Harvard Law Review President, publishes not a single signed article by himself. How often has that happened? 14 years as “ConLaw lecturer” and not a single scholarly article published? Has that EVER happened?

First book written by a very weak writer, second book polished up. Great at speaking from a teleprompter, invariably gaffes and stumbles off the cuff.

Answers questions in debates or press conferences with long and meandering answers that avoid tough points and aim to “run out the clock” on questions.

These are not the attributes of a very smart man.

    Radegunda in reply to Estragon. | August 13, 2013 at 2:30 am

    I think it was the first book that was written by a good writer — which Obama had shown no sign of being up to that point (nor afterward, for that matter). Many people noted that the second book was very different in style, a much less literary work, and most of them chalked it up to a different purpose: the first book more autobiographical, the second more policy wonkery. A more plausible explanation is that Bill Ayers was not available or willing to write the second book.

      Aridog in reply to Radegunda. | August 13, 2013 at 5:38 pm

      “Political wonkery?” Bernadine Dohrn could have handled that one…and probably did.
      I find the texts in either that are obvious iterations of the struggle to be black enough to plainly be the words of a white man or woman who aren’t black at all. Maybe it is just me and my bigotry. I am definitely bigoted toward whites who profess to fully understand what it is to be black. They’re almost as funny as the blacks who purport expertise in all things “white.” Neither side of that liberal dialectic know jack squat, and neither side will listen to anyone else, or even each other, either.

    Radegunda in reply to Estragon. | August 13, 2013 at 2:36 am

    It isn’t just off the cuff that he makes gaffes. I’ve heard some doozies that seemed to have been planned in advance — like “Cinco de Cuatro,” or the farmer-planting-crops analogy that he used right after signing the ACA and it was diametrically opposed to the point he was trying to make (and the point was a stupid one too).

As far as I’m concerned the Mo Fair ban doesn’t go far enough. I won’t be satisfied until this Obama clown is banned from the White House and any future public office.

Obama was on late night comedy (Leno) not long ago. This mask business is just a change in venue for him.
Besides every campaigner wants face time with the public.

Clowns are bottom class citizens.
They are allowed to embarrass themselves. They are allowed to make fools of themselves. Anything! As long as it serves the purpose of entertaining The King and his Court.
However, clowns are not allowed under any circumstance, to make fun of The King Himself.

Off with his head!!


It is another Daily Kos flap-a-doodle. The outrage must be fed even if they have to go to rural Missouri to do it. A child saw it! How to explain a mask of Fearless Leader to a child! Why a vegetarian Daily Kos-ite would take a kid to a rodeo to see poor animals abused is not questioned.

The problem is one of administrative government. These things can happen because we cede control to the government to “run things” like rodeos “for the greater good and safety”. Once in charge, they get to make the rules and the policies.

It is our fault. Why do we expect a government, which is run by democrats, to not punish anyone who dares insult “the One”?

Rodeo clowns have donned presidential masks and been hit by bulls or dressed up dummies as presidents that have been hit by bulls for years.
This man has been banned for life from the Missouri Fair, the Fair is talking about legal action against the Rodeo Association and the local school board is looking into legal action against the ANNOUNCER who is a local school board member.(Of course, the entire Fair board is made up of Democrats)
The offense police have made their mark deeply in America. This is very scary.

is it possible for the rodeo man to sue? enterprising constitutionalist wealthy people could do america a grand favor by establishing an aclu-type agency to look and file lawsuits pro bono whenever an individual or state’s rights and the constitution are potentially violated by the anti-american radical left. such agency could possibly help this man and other plaintiffs of similar circumstances.

whereas the left is unfailingly and vociferously offended whenever their political and cultural demigods are ridiculed for it mostly hit a raw nerve being mostly true their hypocrisy of doing the same thing against their opponents further reinforces their self-denial of their ilk being the ones truly worthy of lampooning and contempt.

Henry Hawkins | August 13, 2013 at 1:59 pm

This is a good thing. The rodeo clown will receive enough money in unsolicited donations that he’ll retire a wealthy man, while the knee-jerk Obama worshippers who place their idolatry above others’ freedoms have moved that much closer to total political irrelevancy via self-mockery.

The clown evaded the bull but not the bullshit.

In other news, Lorne Michaels is now in prison for life for serial Presidential mockery.

“UPDATE! Obama is dancing to the music of local rap artist and school teacher Mic Crenshaw who’s lyrics include: ”We Gotta Get Past Capital and Private Property,” ”Like a shank to the pancreas,” “occupy property and block the streets,” and “wage labor is slavery.” (H/T LaL)”

Mister Natural | August 14, 2013 at 4:34 am

Can someone remind me?

Where is the ACLU?

From now on have the clowns in congress work the rodeo. All other professional clowns should boycott until those in charge come to their senses.
