The more observant among you may have noticed a disturbing trend in the Age of Obama; specifically, this administration behaves in ways that would make a typical banana republic dictator blush, deciding to enforce certain laws or not others, unilaterally suspending, postponing or granting waivers against enforcement of duly-enacted legislation, including his signature legacy item, Obamacare, or parts of it, and using every trick in the book to do an end run around the Constitution.
Last May, when the White House mouthpiece of the week, Dan Pfeiffer, appeared on a Sunday show, he said it all. “The law is irrelevant.” All of this blatant unrepentant lawlessness is unprecedented, dare I say, “historic.” Those of you desperately asking why no one is standing up to this gangsta government need look no further than the furor surrounding the ridiculous episode involving a rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair, who dared to mock His Highness, Barack Hussein Obama.
The overused phrase “over the top” does not begin to describe hysteria inspired by the routine mocking of the President of the United States by a clown. Repeating – this guy’s official job title is “clown,” and yet his donning of an Obama mask has resulted in mandatory sensitivity training for rodeo clowns in Missouri, the resignation of president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association and the announcer at the event, and a life long ban for the clown who put on the mask. Seriously? “Sensitivity training for clowns.” Let that sink in.
The Missouri NAACP is demanding that another race baiter, Attorney General Eric Holder’s (In)Justice Department and the Secret Service launch an investigation. This is the same bunch that had no problem with a black man being beaten up at a Tea Party rally by union thugs because their victim was an “Uncle Tom.”
I know that all of you are exasperated, ready to scream “Since when did it become a firing offense to criticize or mock the President of the United States? Where were these people when writers were penning screenplays about the assassination of President George W. Bush? Where was the outrage when HBO’s Game of Thrones featured the head of President George W. Bush on a pike?” Both President Bush and President LIncoln were compared to apes, monkeys and chimps, and there is no record of anyone being required to attend sensitivity training as a result. In fact, as the Washington Times story notes, in 1994, another rodeo clown did a very similar act featuring President George H.W. Bush. The answer to the “since when” question is: “Since we decided to buy into the Left’s Critical Race Theory, which says racist Amerika is forever unredeemable.”
As we approach the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, on August 28, it’s worth noting several very disturbing facts highlighted by this ludicrous non-event; first, that for all the lip service that race hustlers like Al Sharpton pay to Dr. King’s noble call to judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin, the reality is that a color-blind society is the last thing that they want. In fact, it’s their worst nightmare.
