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.

Abouhalkah´s a raging leftist who fits the profile of K.C. Star columnists perfectly. The only conservative on the Star´s editorial board retired this year so the board and the columnists are all of one mind now - worship Obama, promote Hillary´s candidacy and preserve the Left´s agenda (and objective journalism be dam*ed)

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!

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
