Because a rodeo clown named Tuffy Gessling taunted a bull while wearing an Obama mask, Mary Ratliff, the head of the Missouri NAACP called for the US Justice Department and the Secret Service to investigate because Ratliff believes Tuffy is “guilty of inciting violence against the president.”
Ms. Ratliff also called the clown’s actions “a hate crime.”
Thus far, President Obama, the butt of the rodeo joke, has remained silent on the subject. One would think that because, under any other circumstance, a clown costume would be considered all in good fun, Barack Obama, who wore a similar mask for a Saturday Night Live comedy skit back on November 3, 2007, would come to Tuffy’s defense, and call off the race baiters.
But he hasn’t and he won’t. That’s why it’s good to revisit history.
Seems that a year almost to the day before the historic 2008 election, doing a comedic turn in a skit depicting a Halloween party at Hillary and Bill’s Chappaqua home, a man showed up wearing a Barack Obama mask.
That man turned out to be Senator Barack Obama who said, “I have nothing to hide.”
Wow! Five years later, Barack Obama saying that he’s got “nothing to hide,” is even funnier than Darrell Hammond, who played Bill Clinton, calling Hillary Clinton, dressed as a bride, played by Amy Poehler, a witch.
Delighting the SNL audience, rather than avoid the bull, Obama threw a little of his usual bull around when he said, “I enjoy being myself. I’m not going to change who I am just because it’s Halloween.”
The hindsight translation for that joke is this: Barack Obama is just as scary with or without the mask.
Nonetheless, if Barack Obama had even the slightest bit of integrity, he’d call off the racist pit bulls and put this silly controversy to rest.
Why? Because if Tuffy Gessling committed a hate crime by wearing an Obama mask, than in 2007, on Saturday Night Live, to get a laugh, the Barack Obama clown committed a hate crime against himself.
Thus, maybe it’s time our post-racial president joined Tuffy and the rest of the clowns for sensitivity training.

It's FINALLY HERE!
Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!
Enjoy this excerpt from the book:
"In actuality, black people will go to substandard hospitals, wait in long lines behind illegal immigrants, and be treated like non-citizens, as there simply won’t be enough healthcare to go around. There will be the occasional lucky few who will receive treatment, and we will parade them around like championship rings, thus continuing the ruse. As you can see, we’ve left out nothing. We touch more on this in Chapter 10: Promise Everything, Deliver Nothing. If for some reason we happen to run out of blacks, we will be able to apply our trade to the Mexicans with little disruptions. Plans are already underway for our next edition in this “How To” series: How to be a Latino "Race Pimp for Fun and Profit…even if you’re Illegal."
