Last year, the Lefty Hollywood types took a fairly life like GWB mask, stuffed it, put a great head of hair on it, and put it on a POLE, to look like a beheaded peasant or enemy soldier for the show "Game of Thrones". Naturally, many on the Right thought it was inappropriate to do that to a still living ex-POTUS.
We were told, at various times and by various people attached to HBO and "Game of Thrones", that it was (a) joke / oversight / ART, and it wasn't meant as disrespect.
Of course the question then, is this. IF it wasn't done on purpose, WHY use that particular mask? If it wasn't a jab, or suggestion for where top put the ACTUAL head of GWB, why not use a Clinton mask? Carter mask? JFK mask? FDR mask? WHY use a mask at all? OK then, let's say that I'll believe what you said about (a) joke / oversight / ART. And now, to show just how open minded and above reproach they are on the Left, I'll post THIS STORY.
The Missouri State Fair has permanently banned a
rodeo clown whose imitation of President Barack Obama has been widely
criticized as disrespectful.
Fair officials said Monday that the rodeo clown has been barred from
ever performing at the fair again. They are also reviewing whether to
take any actions against the contractor responsible for Saturday’s
During the event, a clown wore a mask of Obama and asked the
spectators if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” Many in the
audience responded enthusiastically.
A rodeo announcer said he had no advance knowledge of the widely-criticized act and his attorney said the clown went rogue.
State Fair officials said in a statement Sunday that the act was
“inappropriate” and “does not reflect the opinions or standards” of the
fair. The Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, which sponsored the event,
also apologized in an online statement and said its board of directors
“is dealing with the situation firmly and quickly as this type of
behavior will not be tolerated.”
What the official statement should have said was
“...dealing with the situation firmly and quickly as this type of
free speech will not be tolerated!”
So much for this guy's choices of (a) joke / ART right? I've YET to see anything from the rodeo clown, or to hear HIS side of wearing a mask, lampooning the clown at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
