A rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair inadvertently revealed the depth of inanity that political correctness and political bias has reached in this country. It should be a wakeup call slapping all with a dose of reality, but it may be that political correctness is too far gone to be influenced by reality.
Seeing Obama made fun of by this clown shocked the liberal media and the far left as much as the French Mohammed cartoons seemed to have shocked Muslims. As a result, the state fair commission banned the clown for life and will now require all clowns to undergo sensitivity training. Obama must not be mocked in any way and everyone must bow to the liberal god he has become.
When President George H. Bush was treated similarly by a rodeo clown in 1994, there was no outrage. That, however, occurred a decade ago when political correctness was just in its toddler stages. Today, it has grown into a monster, terrifying all into submissiveness – and into sensitivity training, the American version of the Vietnamese government’s reeducation camps. Let’s be honest here: It is not training, it is punishment.
Another clown, Lady Gaga, upset the PC apple cart with a disrespectful song about burkas. She can make fun of Catholicism, Judaism, Scientology, etc., but the PC line is drawn at Muslim’s religion and practices as it is with Obama and will soon be with Hillary.
A third clown, Rachel Maddow, is now self-righteously referring to the Washington ‘Redskins’ as the ‘R-word’ because ‘Redskins’ is so “painfully racist”. It is Maddow who is painful here; heroically discovering a heretofore hidden offense in a word used honorably for decades and understood to signify strength, tenacity, and courage. How many are really insulted by this?
It is not the rodeo clown who is offensive; it is all these other clowns who are trying to control all in the name of political correctness. They need to be banned for life.

I enjoyed this posting because I cannot stand Political Correctness as it feed into the problem of a nation where honesty is not the flavor of the day. An illegal immigrant is an illegal immigrant why soften the term by saying undocumented immigrant? You know life is full of winning and losing not everybody gets to be home coming queen and not every player gets a trophy, only the winners of the contest. Political correctness is warping reality to an alarming degree. Why can’t people accept honesty, it is not always comfortable but it is always real.
