A rodeo clown is in deep trouble with liberals for daring to make fun of Obama. All he did was wear an Obama mask during the rodeo and the left is reacting as if it was a crime against humanity. On radio, Glenn reminded the angry leftists that Obama is not God.
TheBlaze picked up on a liberal attendees outrage over the rodeo clown which was posted on Facebook:
Last night, Lily and I took a student from Taiwan to the rodeo at the Missouri State Fair. Just prior to the start of the bull riding event, one of the clowns came out dressed in [an Obama mask]. The announcer wanted to know if anyone would like to see Obama run down by a bull. 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. 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. We then left quickly and quietly. Lily’s student is an inquisitive boy and asks a lot of questions about what he sees, and though he had never been to a rodeo he asked nothing about it, nor anything about America this time. We rode the sixty miles home in silence. In a way I’m glad. I had no answers for him.
A writer for The Daily Kos, a progressive blog, responded by saying: “Silence is not an appropriate response to this ‘entertainment’ on grounds owned by all Missourians. I can’t write anymore at how disgusting this is. All I want is some heads to roll.”
The Governor, the Lt. Governor, and U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill from Missouri have all come out and condemned the incident.
In response to the incident, Glenn was left wondering when we reacted to cartoonish portrayals of the President with the same anger that radical Islamists have reacted to portrayals of the Prophet Muhammad. In the past, creators of cartoons that mocked Muhammad have been met with death threats, and some creators have been forced to censor their work for fear of violent retaliation and outrage.
“You can have an opinion on this and you can write your opinion on this. Let me just address those in positions of power. You should read the United States Constitution. Since when did we begin to treat the president of the United States like frickin’ Mohammed! He’s not the Prophet Muhammad. He is not God, he is not Allah. He is not the Prophet Muhammad. Stop treating him as he is God. He is not God,” Glenn said.
“Did we hear anything about the Bush masks that people wore? Did we hear anything about the Nixon masks that people wore, the Ronald Reagan masks that people wore, the Ronald Reagan puppets and Muppets that they used you to make in the Eighties?”
Glenn said that progressives have used race as a firewall to stop people from criticizing President Obama.
“Just because he’s black,” Glenn said. “He is dismantling and reversing the Constitution of the United States. And don’t take my word for it. Take his word for it. He says he wants a charter of positive liberties, not a charter of negative liberties. Here is a scholar of the Constitution that wants to reverse what the Constitution is. He’s a danger to the Constitution. It has nothing to do with him being black. It has nothing to do with where he was born.”
