    This clown stuff is such an overreaction. Amazing.

    Just shows how many little bitches there are in the world these days. Ridicule of a president has been standard practice in this country since Washington. Clinton was savaged. Bush was savaged. Reagan was savaged. Carter was eviscerated. They have been mocked, hung in effigy, the constant subject of comedians and television monologues. That this even got media play shows some people need to go see their gynecologist. Yes...the women too.

    Meh, the fair can do whatever it likes in this case imho.

    As to your post, I have absolutely no reason why you included the picture of the GWB head from Game of Thrones which is an entirely seperate situation.

    In one case a person intentionally put on an Obama mask as part of his "clown" costume with the direct intent of making it perfectly clear he was referencing Obama to the point of having the PA announcer ask the crowd if they wanted to see Obama "ran down by a Bull".

    In the other case crew members on a TV set grabbed a bunch of dummy heads that were on hand, threw wigs on them, to use them as props and purposefully turned the face away along with giving it long hair to not make it clear that it was a model of the former President and was publicly stated that it was done for absolutely no political reason and in no way was highlighted by those doing it.

    Yes, TOTALLY similar enough to warrant using that picture alone to demonstrate your thoughts on this issue.

    As far as I know there isn't and this was not a racist act in any sense I'm sorry.

    While I don't believe Obama himself had anything to do with this, the people that did the ban are morons.
    I think so too....as I stated previously. A ban was over the top.

    I saw the video and I have to admit that I didn't see anything really racist here. I thought it was disrespectful to the President of the United States but nothing more.

    The dumbest Congress-WOMAN !!! , in perhaps our Nations History demanded those
    involved be held accountable.

    Not those " involved " in the death and cover up of our Ambassador and 3 Americans in Lybia be held accountable.

    Or those responsible for the IRS targeting of private Citizens based exclusively on their political and or religious ideology.

    Or those responsible for the thousands of guns that were allowed to walk into the hands of the Mexican Drug Cartels so the White House could create a false narrative concerning Gun Control.

    Not Eric Holder who's perjured himself in front of a Congressional Commitee...twice.

    Nah, the Rode Clown should be held accountable.

    Liberals, they're so corrupt the weight of their malfeasance alone guarantees their demise......politically of course

    This serves to demonstrate who the real clowns are.

    I love how the Cons try and spin everything into some vast liberal conspiracy. A highly efficient network to suppress Con freedoms.

    First it is Missouri, not a huge battle ground state in the elections. It went Willard by 10 points.

    Next it is rodeo, next to NASCAR it is THE redneck sport. Not a lot of limousine liberals in the bleachers.

    The Fair Board members are not going to have a bunch of 'Abortion is good' or 'Solar Power Now' bumper stickers on their gas guzzlers.

    But there may be a fair number of Missourians who are old school patriots, not one or two parts of the Constitution 'patriots'.

    There was a saying in the Army I served in- "You salute the rank, not the man." The difference between protesters out on the street vs on State Fairground property should be obvious. Something organized and that represents the State. Respect the Office of President even if you don't like the current occupant. Yanno try and bring a little class in a place that smells of horse and bulls**t.

    As an aside- I can't ever recall a clown wearing a mask- they need all their vision to be safe. A mask cuts down peripheral vision quite a bit. Does mess with breathing as well. I'd say this clown isn't the brightest guy who ever decided to make a living as an angry bull taunter.

    Lifetime ban may be a bit much but there are plenty of other events to work, it isn't as if he was banned from ALL rodeos. Then again many in here demanded Manning be executed for what he did....
