The Missouri rodeo clown, who infuriated thin-skinned liberals across America by wearing an Obama mask, has been banned from performing at the Missouri State Fair – for life. The decision is nothing more than a cowardly reaction in the face of a politically correct, pathetic attack. This morning on radio, Glenn asked the audience take a stand.
This isn’t the first time that Glenn has stood for freedom of speech. When Daily Show creator Lizzie Winstead tweeted a polarizing tweet about the tornado in Moore, OK – Glenn stood for her right to speak. He defended Paula Deen’s right to free speech when she was accussed of using racially charged langauge, and he defended Bill Maher over comments for 9/11. When an artist painted Obama as Jesus, Glenn agreed that the Constitution didn’t protect people from being offended or having hurt feelings.
The rodeo clown in Missouri is just the latest example of personal outrage running roughshod over the Constitution and the First Amendment.
Freedom of speech is one of the cornerstones upon which this country was founded, and yet we find ourselves living in a land ruled by political correctness and cowardliness. You don’t have to agree with the message of the Rodeo clown. You don’t have to agree with the way he chose to express himself. But we can all agree that he has the right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
You have that right too. Show you support freedom of speech by using the hashtag #WeAreAllRodeoClowns on Facebook and Twitter.
