Shameful Missouri State
Fair stunt smears Obama

Kansas City Star [KS], by Yael T. Abouhalkah

Original Article

Posted By:gorton, 8/11/2013 7:11:02 PM

The taxpayer-supported Missouri State Fair is getting a lot of negative publicity in social media Sunday following a report of a shameful stunt that occurred Saturday night in Sedalia. (Snip) Basically, a clown wearing a mask of Obama came out during the bull riding event. The crowd was asked if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull. Things got worse from there." Things got worse from there, which doesn’t surprise me, given the anti-Obama feeling among many fairgoers from rural Missouri, where Obama lost to Mitt Romney (at least 60-40 percent in much of outlying parts of state)

Comments:
A reporter named Abouhalkah is horrified by rodeo clowns wearing an Obama mask. Looks like this is his first rodeo.

Please note corrections, including proper use of "Snip" when editing and posting to word limit. Headline needed splitting. LCom Staff.

My first thought was of Saturday Night Live skewering Gerald Ford as a bumbling idiot, and of George Bush as simply an idiot. No outcries of being disrespectful for that.

obama treats us with disrespect on a daily basis so I don´t really care about hurting his fragile ego. Frankly they could have put the mask right under the bull´s tail and let the chips fall where they may. This has probably ruined his whole vacation.

Apparently they had to comb through all of rural Missouri to find two or three people who found this stunt disrespectful. I find it hilarious just like the idea of thinking of Obama as a president and pontificating that he deserves respect. For what, his golf score? His concern for the American people? His glorious record in foreign policy?

The bull is something that barry is very close to, so it was an appropriate skit. So Yael, how did the bull feel about it?

Obama is doing his best to destroy our country. If that is not an act of disrespect for the entire citizenry, I don´t know what is.
While the office of POTUS deserves respect, the person of this POTUS deserves none.

The way W was savaged so viciously, and in so many different ways, is truly sad and truly sickening - and something of which pretty much everyone except his admirers is still in denial.

Here, in a rare case of Zippy getting a little dose himself, they make the mistake of getting a little too rough, and in a taxpayer-funded event, and it gets called out in bold print. How ironic. Obama has it made...

The clown who did this was probably aware of the fact that shortly after a visit to Warrensburg, a terrorist was let go on murder charges. Thin skin, indeed.

zippy was in no way harmed. Being 1,200 miles away? No harm. The rules are seriously different for those of the other party.

The whole thing sounds hilarious , including the hybèrbolic recounting by the frantic writer.
The writer wants the Secret Service to investigate , but,he did note that Obama
was " never in any danger ".
That´s because Obama a ) was 2,000 miles away at his multimillion dollar luxury vacation .
And b) it was a spoof.
Did he have the same reaction to the off Broadway play about doing away with President Bush ?
Of course not.

I am a Missouri resident and am not at all surprised that the KC Star would print this type of article. We sometimes wonder if it is owned my the NY Times bunch.

As for the act in question I have to agree with most of the above posters, the vitriol slung at Presidents Bush(both of them) and Ford were sometime much worse and I personally don´t see anything wrong with what was done. It wasn´t an insult to the office but instead directed at a creature that needs and has earned it.

The affirmative action affect--we are supposed to be conditioned to know in movies that the black sidekick of the protagonist is better than most humans, wise, self-sacrificing, stronger than Whitey, what else in this standard character?

Can´t even make fun of the man who speaks to hear himself talk (everyone else gone obaMao deaf) ´s white half because it is socialist so also invisible to the corrupt left leaning media and their minions.

ObaMao´s stunts shame obaMao. That the media tried to destroy GWB even if it destroyed the country is a given and the result of that blatant hate and the hate of democrats makes the jokes at the expense of fork-tongued socialist community organizer prez a-okay. Bring ´em on?

Couldn´t tell the truth during the election and now can´t make jokes either. When will obaMao grow up and stand like a man, a man who claimed the office of the most powerful man on earth but isn´t and who if tries will get troops killed for his vanity and pride.

His $7.6 mil vacation in the Hamptons lightly taken as any entitlement is in entitlement mentality is, is the real shame and they bring it on themselves as do the dems and media dems who uphold it.

Equal is as equal does?

Poster#17 is right: The K.C. Star is nothing more than a fish wrapper for the Democrat Party. And whatever a "YAEL´ is, with that kind of a name; the Bar-B-Que Pork in KC is in No DANGER. Anyway his idea of a State Fair is probably chopping off body parts that offend him. Like was found in the City Soccer Stadium in Kabul when the US Troops first liberated it from the TALLY-BAN.

Wasn´t there. Didn´t see it. I do remember that rodeo clowns did such things fifty and sixty years ago.

And at fairs you could throw baseballs at masks of various politicians.

Only five years ago you could do anything to an image of Bush.

But Obama is sacred. In the class with Stalin and Mao; a pair the left also still worships.

When a lot of people with Muslim sounding names use the word shameful to describe Islamic terrorism and the murder and torture of Christians and Jews, I might start paying attention to other things they write. I also think that people from countries who persecute Christians should not be allowed into the United States. Either that or they should be put up with liberals in their houses so that our minorities, gays, lesbians, feminists, and atheists can really appreciate the ideals and lifestyles of their Islamic brothers.

Note how the title is designed to damn the Missouri State Fair, rather than just the stunt? Many would call it hilarious. The laughingly leftist KC Star and their ace (totally unbiased) reporter Yael T. Abouhalkah call it shameful.

Another proud Missouri here - I wasn´t there, but apparently a lot of people in the crowd thought it was FUNNY, as it was meant to be. I am also sick of anytime someone speaks against obama, it´s turned into a "RACIST" thing. I think only the people who voted for him just because he is black, resort to the racist accusations. So now they´re talking about pulling funding for the state fair totally? What a bunch of hypocrites!

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
