(Weasel Zippers)   In the middle of all the fauxtrage over that clown Obama appearing at the Rodeo in MO, someone points out that the exact same thing was done to GWB -- only without all the histrionics. Sensitive little dictator, isn't he?   (weaselzippers.us) divider line 171

As is usual with these kinds of threads, the POTUS is given credit for being all offended when its unlikely he's even aware of what happened at some small time oval of dirt in flyover land.

Of course, they don't describe any of the same violent rhetoric being used about George HW Bush. Not that I care about this "incident," but if you're going to b-b-but it, compare apples to apples.

Criticizing your President without fear of retribution is something that we hold on to dearly.

How far do we go? We burn effigies. And guess what? That has always been perfectly legal.

Giving in to the mob and investigating could have a chilling effect on political speech.

A GHWB mask near a rodeo clown two years after he left office?  Er... why?

I'm more bothered that it doesn't really make any sense.  Like comments on that article.

George HW Bush is a different person than George W Bush.

It only gets better. If you want to work as a clown  for the Missouri state fair rodeo, you much go to a reeducation camp first.

Stupid waste of time drawing our attention away from important invents in the world.

The guy who did this stunt says it wasn't political - that it was supposed to just be a joke.
And you know what?  I'm perfectly comfortable with saying 'public tax dollars can't be used to re-enact a lynching / klan rally'.
 
2013-08-14 07:59:49 AM  
I don't have a problem with the Obama Rodeo Clown. If they named a calf Obama then ran it down and roped it up, sure. But just getting chased by itself isn't offensive.

Is that what you seriously think what happened?

Wow no wonder why there is all this outrage. You got trolled, dude.
 
2013-08-14 08:01:54 AM  
Disguising Weasel Zippers as "Pennywise"?  Bad Subby!  That's very, very bad!  Don't make us whack you over the snout with a rolled up newspaper.

I need to start a conservative blog.  Phase one:  Present a hate object. Doesn't even have to be anything significant.  Just as long as it sets off the right wing lizard brain, for example: "Nancy Pelosi has breakfast".  Phase 2. Let the little retards go berserk.  Phase 3. Sell ads and profit!

Well, lets see.  You head down to one of the reddest and whitest states in the union.  Then you dress a guy up in blackface as the president.  Have him flap his big ole lips around a few times, and finish up by having him get chased by a bull.

The Klan wishes they'd thought of this first.

Umm, you do know what a lynching is, don't you?

Not only that, but damn, dude, yes he is black but that does not make him free from being mocked. Everything that anyone does mockingly against Obama is always racist to many people. No matter what it is, its always racist. Its bullshiat
 
2013-08-14 08:12:51 AM  
I see my comment from the previous thread still holds:

/PROTIP: clown dressed as politician? Ok. Whipping the audience into a lather over the prospect of serious bodily injury? Not Ok.

There's nothing in the linked article to suggest that the audience was asked if they wanted to see GHWB trampled.
 
2013-08-14 08:15:13 AM  
I really want Obama to troll everyone and show up somewhere in a flight suit. Can you imagine the head asplosions?
 
2013-08-14 08:20:44 AM  
I remember this idea that Missouri was some great harbinger of national sentiment because it had people living on both ends and nothing in the middle and was therefore a microcosm of the US for each election cycle.  With Mitt's landslide Missouri victory, I'm thinking I'll no longer hear analogies comparing Kansas City to LA and St. Louis to NYC from people who live in the Ozarks.

Do you even know what happened before he got chased? Because it doesn't seem like you do.
 
2013-08-14 08:22:49 AM  
Anyone who mocks a politician deserves to lose their job! Its unamaerican and beneath the dignity of a rodeo to mock someone! How dare they!!!

So unless it's EXACTLY the same, there is no valid comparison whatsoever.  Got it.

People from STL and KC don't go to the State Fair. It's literally in downtown BFE, and only representative of rural Missouri.

I've been to the fair once, many years ago, on behalf of my church.  Moving boxes of donations, or something like that.  I don't remember seeing any of the fair, though.

Smirky the Wonder Chimp: Is he even aware of the Clown Incident, Subby?


Oh, you KNOW he is.  Why else do you think he empowered the NSA to read all of our emails and listen to all of our phone calls?  It's so he can put the ki-bosh on anyone who hurts his widdle feewlings.  And his operatives are everywhere, ready to rat out patriotic Americans who want him and all Demnocrats out of office.

Reddest? I will tell the governor that. A democrat who's won handily both as that office and ag. Claire Macskill might object also.

How well I remember the Dubya years.  No criticism of the president or his (puppet master's) policies ever drew any outrage from the right.  The phrases "time of war," "America-hating," and "love it or leave it" never occurred.

This one was my favorite:

"The historical KKK would jeer, attack, beat, vandalize, loot and even murder blacks with the implied and even clear consent and support of the media and government. So, what do we have today? The BLACK KKK! They have become EXACTLY what they once HATED!"

Because being butthurt about a dumbass stunt is totally the same thing as a century long reign of terror resulting in thousands of murders, rapes, assaults, arsons, lynchings, etc.

cameroncrazy1984I really want Obama to troll everyone and show up somewhere in a flight suit. Can you imagine the head asplosions?
That, my friend, is a winning concept.  And the week after, he could pull a Dukakis in an Army tank.  Then, Lou Gossett Jr. at some Navy OCS school.  Then, Putin shirtless on a horse.  The possibilities are endless. In a few weeks time all the opposition would be dead from strokes.

Although Obama was probably personally uninvolved in the punishment of this rodeo clown, this is the sort of hysterical, hypersensitive reaction we've come to expect from the typical Obama supporter.

They don't seem to understand that getting a case of the vapors over a little mockery FROM A RODEO CLOWN doesn't actually assist their man-crush Obama. It makes him seem weak and fragile.

Traditionally lynchings were either hanging a black guy from a tree, or alternatively dragging him behind a truck for a few miles.  For a state fair re-enactment I think "lets cheer as the guy with big lips gets trampled by a two-ton cow" could fit the general idea.

The fact that you think that what happened to Emmett Till is in any way comparable to this really makes me think of you a whole lot less
