Recently the left has been outraged over the rodeo clown who wore a mask of Obama while performing. The crowd loved it; the left is crying about it. The NAACP is asking the Department of Justice to investigate the clown, others on the left are asking the Secret Service to investigate the clown. The clown has been banned for life from any further rodeos put on by this particular rodeo company! Did you ever think that in the United States wearing a mask of a president would cause this reaction? This is not America!! The left is trying to make Obama royalty by making it next to illegal to make fun of the king! This is as bad as muslims when they riot over spoofs of Mohammed! The left is also saying a US president should not be mocked or disrespected. Really?
If you will look back 10 years ago and think of President Bush. The left made a film (they said it was a documentary) on the assassination of Bush. The left called it art and the filmmakers were never investigated nor did they lose their jobs.
Or In the 2004 novella “Checkpoint,” author Nicholson Baker depicted a conversation between two men planning to assassinate Bush. “He’s one dead armadillo,” says one character, speaking of the president. The Washington Post was impressed by the book’s “fanciful flourishes and fierce, furious fits of anger.” Baker was not banned from anything and is still writing and being published today.
The left must have forgotten depictions of Bush as a chimpanzee, in particular, were common on the Internet during those years. And not unheard of on television. In October 2009, after Bush left office HBO’s Bill Maher said on his program “Real Time,” that, “Barack Obama, an actual college professor, replaced George Bush, an actual chimp.” Maher was not banned from HBO; he is still the host of the program.
Let’s look at the left’s disrespect and ridicule, in 2007, TV newswoman Erin Burnett, who then worked for MSNBC, repeatedly referred to Bush as a “monkey” during a report on an economic summit. Burnett, who later apologized, was not banned from television; she is now a prime-time anchor on CNN. Either the left thinks calling a sitting president a “monkey” is not disrespectful or they are hypocrites!! Can you imagine what would happen if a FOX news person were to call Obama a “monkey?” I think we all know the left is nothing but hypocritical in just about everything they do or say.
AND THE VERY SAME ACT IN 1994, the case of a rodeo clown wearing a mask of George H.W. Bush and noted that a contemporary account in The Philadelphia Inquirer closely resembled press accounts of the Missouri sketch.
“The big white gate flew open. The bull came out bucking. The rider flopped from side to side and the bullfighters held back, letting the bull make his moves until the rider dropped off. Licciardello crouched in a heavily padded barrel, a human target should the bull decide to charge. Hawkins waited near the barrel, holding his big inner tube. A dummy with a George Bush mask stood beside the clown, propped up by a broomstick,” wrote Douglas A. Campbell of The Inquirer at the time. Remember how outraged the left was over this disrespectful incident of a sitting president? No? You don’t remember it because there was no outrage. That is the point; the conservatives of this nation understand free speech and the left ONLY believes in “free speech” when they agree with it.
Anyone who believes in free speech has to stand up and support this rodeo clown. Even if you do not like with what he did, he still has the right to do it in the United States! The left is trying to shut down OUR free speech because they are afraid. They are afraid people are waking up and the left cannot allow that. They are doing everything they can to shut discussions down; they are afraid of people like us who will no longer keep our mouths shut. We cannot allow the left to try and intimidate us or distract us by calling us “racist” for speaking out about Obama and his policies and actions.
