Obama rodeo stunt leads
to sensitivity training for
Missouri State Fair clowns

New York Daily News, by Doyle Murphy

The Missouri State Fair will force rodeo clowns to complete sensitivity training after a clown mocked President Obama in a stunt one spectator likened to a Ku Klux Klan rally. The fair’s commission also approved a lifetime ban on the offending clown. The controversy began on Saturday at the fair in Sedalia. A clown in an Obama mask with a broom handle attached to his backside moved into the arena as another clown called out over the microphone, “This bull’s going to get’cha, Obama! He’s gonna get’cha!” The fair commission has called the stunt “unacceptable,” and approved a measure that would

The guy was a rodeo clown.. get it... a rodeo clown... for Pete´s sake.

Democrats don´t give a hoot about the IRS targeting political groups, don´t give a hoot about Benghazi, don´t give a hoot about Obamacare....


a rodeo clown makes fun of a president...and my gosh...the Dems get upset.

This is their attempt to have us take our eyes off the ball.

"sensitivity training"... for a clown?

Who is going to do the training?

Our country is headed to leader worship...you know...like that little twerp from North Korea...when the people walk into the water to follow him in a boat.

Ooops...now I have to go to training.

#3 - I thought I saw something earlier where the NAACP is asking the DOJ to investigation the rodeo clown.

This country needs to think long and hard before they elect any more black politicians. They all appear to have some inferiority complex and need to constantly have their egos massaged.

Obama is the one who needs Sensitivity Training.

He should also be sent to Clown School
so he can learn how to be a proper clown,
not a Chicago Clown.

Uh, Sir?

Yes, Gordo?

Uh, mmm, Some rodeo clowns have made fun of your image. What should we do to them in retaliation?

Godo, Gordo, Gordo- How many times must I tell you. Rodeo clowns are a peso a dozen. If you can not convince them your way, then they must go to the Re-Education camps.

You mean, Sir, Send them first to "Sensitivity Training"?

Yes. Yes! Of course. I see what you mean, Gordo. Very clever. "Sen-see-teev-ity Camps"---

Er, ah- Training, Sir. It sounds better.

Oh, Yes---Good. And then, After they have come out of the camps, we can do as we like to them if they back slide.

That´s good Sir. And, it can be a valuable lesson to any of the other citizens who might be wanting to try something similar. Like draw non-flattering cartoons of you, or imitate you in a silly maner on television.

Yes. Good thinking, Gordo. Oh- By the way?

Yes, Sir?

Did anyone laugh when these so-called "Clowns" made fun of me?

Yes. I believe so, Sir.

Get their names. We should send Azod and his men to talk to them. Oh, and give their names to the IRS. They should learn from their mistakes with these silly "Clowns".

Very good, Sir. I´ll see to it immediately.

From a CONSERVATIVE Missourian who doesn´t like the way this is exploding anymore than you do, don´t judge ALL Missourian´s by the responses of the democrats-in-charge. Apparently there were plenty of rodeo attendees who LAUGHED at the JOKE - who understood it was a JOKE - and we´re not all that thin-skinned and judgmental. I agree with what Rush said, all it would take would be obama to laugh about it and tell everyone to forget it, but he´s too conceited to do that.

If I understand correctly, the clown was only banned from the Mo State Fair, which is also the entity demanding "sensitivity training" for all the rodeo clowns. If I were one of those guys, I would just scratch the Mo state fair off my go-to list before I would go to "sensitivity training". And if I could be the collective PRCA membership, I would do the same thing--there are a lot of other rodeos to perform in.

Like all leftist programs, sensitivity training has the opposite result - it p!sses people off and makes them less sensitive, especially when they are forced to attend for some inane grievance. The natural human reaction to being forced into it is to think,"Eff you and your sensitivity, you pansy!".

Wait until a robber shows up at an elderly folks´ nursing home wearing an O-Bomber mask
and stealing everybody´s money (sorta like O-Bomber´s KommieKare) and then maybe
choosing who will be allowed to live and die.

That´ll raise a few hackles amonst the DimWitz and DimWitches.

Of course this is a Dog Whistle for racism.
Next they´ll escalate to the word or concept of "lynching."

When will Weiner be given sensitivity training?

Shouldn´t Weiner be more sensitive?

From the same foks who told us that hanging a noose in your yard on Halloween is racist, now they tell us a rodeo clown is banned for life from a MO state fair and needs sensitivity training for making fun of Obama. I read somewhere that dictators do not like being made fun of, especially Mulatto dictators it seems. Hey Obama, go stick it where the sun don´t shine, bro!

Never been to Missouri and never going there. The whole state needs to go to sensitivity training -- to learn how to laugh at jokes.

The only thing wrong with that clown was that his ears were not big enough! His teeth were big enough though . . . almost matched Mooche´s six inch teeth.

After remarks he made at the National Action Network conference this week and various actions on voting rights and equality he’s taken over the past several months, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is starting to wonder if Attorney General Eric Holder is “the Obama we had been hoping for.” Even though she admitted it’s not entirely fair to “separate” Holder from President Barack Obama, that’s the question the host posed to her panel Saturday morning. “I think he may be the greatest addition to the entire Obama Administration,” Fordham University’s Christina Greer told Harris-Perry, saying the “foundational work”

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent.

The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings.

Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage. Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal

LONDON - NATO says tens of thousands of Russian troops are massed on the border with Ukraine for a potential invasion, yet Western states still lack a strategy to stop Moscow from intervening in its former Soviet neighbors. (Snip) Ultimately, Moscow´s commitment to rebuild the former USSR as its own unilateral sphere of influence may outstrip the determination of Washington and its European allies to stop it. Experts say Moscow has been infiltrating its neighbors ever more deeply, building its influence amongst security forces, government officials and politicians. That, some say, allows it to stir up instability in locations like

TMZ reported Thursday that police are in the beginning stages of investigating an alleged incident which TMZ said happened at the Viceroy Hotel in Miami earlier this month. The story said the police were investigating for "possible sexual assault," but Bay Area News Group crime reporter Natalie Neysa Alund wrote that the incident is not being investigated as a sexual assault.

Two new surveys clearly show that the number of people who lack health insurance in the United States has dropped — but largely not because people have enrolled in Obamacare exchanges. (Snip) What Gallup doesn´t dive into is where people are gaining insurance. That´s where the new survey from the RAND Corporation comes in. Interestingly, RAND discovered that the vast majority of new insurance coverage came not from enrollments in the Obamacare exchanges, as you might expect. Instead, it was heavily from expansions of coverage by employers and from the expansion of Medicaid — a component of the Affordable Care

The sample of claims data—considered a preliminary look at whether new enrollees are sicker-than-average—also found that prescriptions for treating pain, seizures, and depression are also proportionally higher in exchange plans, according to Express Scripts, one of the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit management companies.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition. The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It
