Liberals have absolutely no humor when it is one of them being made fun of
(Kansas City Star) The taxpayer-supported Missouri State Fair got a lot of negative publicity Sunday following a report of a shameful stunt that occurred Saturday night in Sedalia.
The story by an eyewitness, Perry Beam, is posted to Daily Kos and Show Me Progress.
Basically, a clown wearing a mask of President Barack Obama came out during the bull riding event at the fair. The crowd was asked if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull.” (UPDATE: 6:55 p.m.: Here are two short videos of part of the incident: “We’re going to smoke Obama, man,” says announcer.)
Egged on by the crowd and the announcer, “One of the clowns ran up and started bobbling the lips on the mask and the people went crazy. Finally, a bull came close enough to him that he had to move, so he jumped up and ran away to the delight of the onlookers hooting and hollering from the stands.”
Obviously this is a horrible show of respect for the President of the United States at a public event at the state fair– which got more than $400,000 from Missouri state taxpayers this year.
We didn’t show King George III much respect, either. Furthermore, I don’t remember liberals getting upset over people wearing George W. Bush masks, or when Game Of Thrones featured a GWB head. Bush mask good, Obama mask bad. Respect is earned. Considering Obama constantly denigrates people who do not believe as he does, he gets the respect he earned.
It’s also borderline illegal; the U.S. Secret Service takes threats against the president seriously. While the president himself was in no danger here, it’s the kind of stupid activity that could give nuts ideas about harming the president.
Good grief, a threat? Seriously? So, should these nuts have been investigated?
Or were they just expressing their 1st Amendment Rights?
All sorts of politicians, including Republicans, jumped on this, and stated how shameful it was. Remember how all those Democrat politicians denounced people wearing Bush mask, and even all the assassination chic against Bush? No? Hmph.
BTW, funny how liberals get very worked up over this, but not IRS targeting of Conservative groups, 4 dead Americans in Benghazi, the hundreds killed and injured by Fast and Furious guns, etc.
