BREAKING NEWS:  The rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask during a show at the Missouri State Fair over the weekend has been permanently banned from performing there ever again, The Hill reports.

In a statement released to the media Monday afternoon, the commission apologized again for the rodeo clown’s actions and said they were inappropriate and not keeping with the fair’s standards.

The commission unanimously voted to ratify a decision by Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe to ban the rodeo clown who wore the mask.  The clown was not identified.

Albert S. Watkins, attorney for Mark Ficken, the rodeo announcer at the Missouri State Fair, said the clown went off script and was the one who made the controversial comments about the president.

A witness who provided NewsChannel 5 with video and pictures of the clown claimed the announcer “whipped the audience into a lather” by repeatedly asking attendees if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” Source:  KSDK

The announcer, Mark Ficken, who happens to be the Boonville School Superintendent and president of the Missouri Cowboy Rodeo Association is just as culpable, since he was the one who repeatedly asked audience members if they wanted to see Obama run down by the bull. The clown just wore a mask,  Ficken threatened president. He should be permanently banned too. Why did Mark Ficken lawyer up so quickly?

    In summary, if you mock President Obama- even as a rodeo clown designed to mock people- than your life, liberty, and property will be threatened. We are slaves and to mock our masters will bring penalties. If you were part of this attempt to destroy this man’s life simply because he work a mask to mock something (as is his job as a clown), then you should feel bad for supporting this sort of thuggish and tyrannical behavior.
