Just when you think it can’t get any worse…rodeo clown Obama…

How much worse can it get?

 

From the Huffington Post:

Officials from the Missouri State Fair apologized Sunday after a rodeo clown dressed as President Barack Obama sparked an uproar on Saturday evening.

A photo posted to the blog Show Me Progress showed the fair performer with an Obama mask on. According to fair attendee Perry Beam, the clown came out prior to the fair’s bull riding event.

“The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull,” reads Beam’s account. “The crowd went wild. He asked it again and again, louder each time, whipping the audience into a lather. One of the clowns ran up and started bobbling the lips on the mask and the people went crazy.”

The fair’s organizers issued an apology on Sunday, calling the event “disrespectful.”

 

Disrespectful? No, this was way beyond disrespectful. Disrespectful is when some idiot congressman shouts “You lie!” during a speech delivered by President Obama. This event was akin to a virtual lynching carried out by a group of people who would have loved to do the real thing if only they had enough rope and the power to turn the clock back to an era where they would feel more at home. And please keep in mind that this did not happen at some obscure backwoods carnival sponsored by white supremacists. This happened in 2013 at the Missouri State Fair.

This is racial hatred masquerading as entertainment. And if the real Obama had been swinging from a tree, twitching and burning, I’m quite certain the response would have been the same. Because that’s who these folks are. No need to pull back the hoods, because they are in plain view and don’t care who knows it. Hateful, ignorant, and damned proud of it.

It’s hard to even comment on this, because i don’t want to give it any more energy….and because it sickens and saddens me. What in the pluperfect hell do these “mad dogs” have for hearts? AND who let them out??
