Bush rodeo clown allowed in ’94, Obama clown banned forever

rodeo-clownWhile there is no written law, we may have finally reached a place in America where it’s forbidden to publicly mock the president of the United States — assuming the president is an African-American and a member of the Democratic Party.

The outcry over a rodeo clown donning a mask resembling President Obama reached a new level of absurdity when it was reported Monday that the man behind the mask has been permanently banned from performing at the fair ever again, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Missouri State Fair officials barred the rodeo clown from ever performing at the fair again and are requiring that “all officials and subcontractors associated with the association must participate in “sensitivity training,” the Post-Dispatch noted.

In addition, the president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, who served as the announcer at the event, resigned on Monday.

Several state lawmakers are also demanding an investigation after threatening to cut funding for the fair, an annual event that receives state tax dollars.

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.

“The joke is not that it was the president,” he said. “They drag out this person dressed like a dummy and all of the sudden this dummy just takes off running. That’s what’s funny.”

The only difference between then and now is the hyper-sensitivity and double standard that applies to the first African-American president.

Hyper-sensitivity that was on full display when the apparent Obama supporter who drew attention to the incident, Perry Beam, said it felt “like some kind of Klan rally you’d see on TV,” as reported by the USA Today.

All of which may explain why race relations in America are imploding under President Barack Obama’s tutelage.

    The figure in the President Bush mask was a dummy, not an actual person. Nothing was ever announced or was the crowd asked about President Bush.

    No one asked the crowd if they would like to see Bush run over by a bull.
    No one said over the loudspeaker “As soon as this bull comes out, Bush, don’t you move! He’s going to getcha, getcha getcha, getcha.”
    No one announced over the loudspeaker “We’re going to stomp Bush now!”
    But it’s hilarious to watch the right try to swing this as the same.

    I’m originally from Missouri. It does not surprise me a bunch of backwoods Praise Jesus-hand me a beer-where’s my shootin’ iron- rednecks would be whoopin and
    hollerin for Obama to be run over, beaten, hung,
    shot or anything else, etc. I’d been more surprised if they had booed the comments.

    The whole scenario is stupid and so is the outrage since we’re talking about an idiot who’s job is a rodeo clown. lol

      Speaking of idiots, please learn the difference between “whose” and “who’s.”

    Why do people keep calling Obama African-American? Isn’t he just a plain half white, half black American? What’s with the Africa stuff? (Except that he was most likely born in Africa!)

    Here is the moron, Perry Beams FaceBook page. Blow up his inbox on FaceBook with messages and tell him what a pathetic little whiner he is.

    He is the one who originally whined about this and caused all this ridiculous mess.

    To suggest 1) that race relations in the US are imploding is absurd and 2) that the president is responsible to teaching race relations is equally absurd. In what year did race relations in the US reach its zenith that today the state of those relations is so much lower to say that they have collapsed entirely? The President is now responsible for managing race relations? I thought the jobs description was to uphold and defend the Constitution. Were Bush and Clinton also responsible for race relations. It is true that Obama did give away a lot to certain minorities such as Wall Street Bankers (who are largely white and male) so maybe you do have a point.

    Personally, I think any president is fair game and Obama has recently been giving detractors a lot of meat, but I also think as Americans we should allow ourselves venues where politics takes a vacation and we can *all* just have fun.

    The real reason the Missouri Obama fake clown has been banished forever is because the real one resides in the White House. Yes, the phony president, member of the Muslim Brotherhood (Google it) is a real clown – dangerous however and nothing to laugh at.
    He should be arrested…forget impeachment. Frog-walk his as* out the front door and into a Federal prison.
