Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) invited the rodeo clown who performed at the Missouri State Fair in an Obama mask to appear at a rodeo in his district.
“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with,” said Stockman, “From Molly Ivins to Louie Gohmert and every opinion between Texans value free and open political speech. I’m sure any rodeo in Texas would be proud to have performers.”
“Disagreeing with speech is one thing. Banning it and ordering citizens into reeducation classes for mocking a liberal leader is another,” said Stockman. “Liberals have targeted this man for personal destruction to create a climate of fear.”
“The liberal reaction is straight out of Alinsky. They want to crush dissent by isolating and polarizing anyone who questions Obama, even if it’s a rodeo clown with a harmless gag,” said Stockman. “The idea to create a state of fear and make people afraid to trivialize Obama. No one tried to personally destroy the rodeo clown who wore a George H.W. Bush mask.”
In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, the TX congressman called the request by the Missouri chapter of the NAACP for a federal investigation into a rodeo clown a “silly”, “misguided and hypocritical” thing that should be ignored.
“A rodeo clown is really a nominal thing and it hurt no one,” Stockman told FoxNews.com. “They didn’t speak out when George Bush was being portrayed as a murderer. To become relevant again, they need to become more of an honest broker and not have contrived anger.”
Stockman said the NAACP would better serve its constituents by focusing on ways to decrease unemployment among the black community. He also noted that the national civil rights group was silent after a July incident on a Florida bus where three black teens beat a fellow white student. Though Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent told Fox News the attack did not appear to be racially motivated, former Florida Rep. Allen West, who is black, chided Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, noting they condemned Florida’s laws in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting yet remained mum on the bus attac
“We can’t get the Justice Department to look at Benghazi, so it would be ironic that the Justice Department would investigate a clown.”
Well that’s because Benghazi is a “phony scandal”. This raaaaacist, “minstrelly” rodeo clown in “black face” who has endangered the president by inciting racist bulls to gore him – — that, my friends – is a real scandal.
Fox News reports that “messages seeking comment from Justice Department and NAACP officials were not immediately returned Thursday.”
