For a lot of Republicans being Obama haters is what comes natural. It’s like it’s part of their DNA.
So it’s no surprise that a GOP congressman from Texas wants to invite the shameful rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair last weekend, to come to Houston and do his thing there.
If you forgot the details or somehow didn’t hear about the clown’s controversial shenanigans, at the fair he fired up the crowd by not only wearing a mask of President Obama, but he encouraged a bull to run him down.
Even though the clown has been banned from future state fairs in Missouri and the other performers have been ordered to undergo sensitivity training, Rep. Steve Stockman (pictured below) invited the rodeo group to perform in his congressional district near Houston, according to NBC News.
“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if it’s speech they don’t agree with… They want to crush dissent by isolating and polarizing anyone who questions Obama, even if it’s a rodeo clown with a harmless gag,” Stockman said in a statement.
Interestingly Missouri state officials on both sides of the aisle were quick to denounce the performance, saying it was inappropriate and did not represent the values of the state’s residents.
“We are better than this,” Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, tweeted Sunday.
