Congressman invites rodeo clown Obama to perform in Texas

The fallout over the rodeo clown who donned a mask resembling President Obama during a bull riding competition has turned into a witch hunt.

In addition to apologizing, Missouri State Fair officials barred the rodeo clown, Tuffy Gessling, from ever performing at the fair again and the announcer, who served as president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, resigned his position. And all involved with the association are required to participate in “sensitivity training.”

But the hyper-sensitive supporters of President Obama are now embracing the incident with the same vigor that drives the exploitation of the death of Trayvon Martin and have their sights on the announcer, Mark Ficken, who also serves as superintendent of the Boonville School District.

In a statement this week, the Boonville School District said it “will not tolerate racially inflammatory statements by its District employees” and it has taken steps to hire an outside investigator, according to The (St. Louis) Riverfront Times.

“At the conclusion of the investigation, if it is discovered that District employees participated in the offensive conduct or remarks, then the District will take appropriate action,” the statement read.

As noted in a report by UPI, Ficken has disputed media reports he delivered lines that fair officials said were “inappropriate and disrespectful, and contends he only delivered the single statement, “Watch out for that bull Obama!” as a warning to the clown that the bull was approaching.

At the center of the dispute is the claim by an apparent Obama supporter in attendance that night, Perry Beam, who said the announcer asked the crowd if anyone wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” Beam also said it felt “like some kind of Klan rally you’d see on TV.”

Meanwhile, as the politically motivated seek their pound of flesh in Missouri, U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, has invited Gessling to perform in his home state of Texas, Politico reported.

“The liberal reaction is straight out of Alinsky,” Stockman said. “They want to crush dissent by isolating and polarizing anyone who questions Obama, even if it’s a rodeo clown with a harmless gag. The idea to create a state of fear and make people afraid to trivialize Obama.”
