Texas Congressman Invites Rodeo Clown To Texas

From The Hill:

GOP lawmaker invites rodeo clown who mocked Obama to perform in Texas

By Justin Sink | August 14, 2013

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) invited the rodeo clown who sparked controversy by donning a mask of President Obama at the Missouri State Fair to preform [sic] in Texas, his office said Wednesday.

“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with,” Stockman said in a statement. “From Molly Ivins to Louie Gohmert and every opinion between, Texans value free and open political speech. I’m sure any rodeo in Texas would be proud to have [the] performers.” …

Stockman dismissed the reaction as "straight out of Alinsky."

Exactly.

"They want to crush dissent by isolating and polarizing anyone who questions Obama, even if it’s a rodeo clown with a harmless gag,” said Stockman. “The idea to create a state of fear and make people afraid to trivialize Obama. No one tried to personally destroy the rodeo clown who wore a George H.W. Bush mask.”

The performer has been permanently banned from performing at the Missouri State Fair, and officials have mandated sensitivity training for future performers. Stockman seized on that mandate in extending his invitation to preform in Texas.

“Disagreeing with speech is one thing. Banning it and ordering citizens into reeducation classes for mocking a liberal leader is another,” Stockman said. “Liberals have targeted this man for personal destruction to create a climate of fear.” …

Whatever happened to ‘getting in people’s faces,’ as Obama once recommended?

Ironically, Texas seems to be becoming the real ‘sanctuary state.’

    When you work in Texas. ……..wear a hoodie with the mask.
    Better yet, wear muslim garb.
    Forgo reeducation camp and never work in Misery ever again.
    Retain a lawyer and sue their asses. Every stinking one!
    Good luck, pal.
