The Day Free Speech Died in America

The Washington Times reported:

The fallout from a Missouri rodeo clown’s mockery of President Obama continued as the Missouri State Fair said it will force all clowns to undergo sensitivity training and the head of the state rodeo-clown organization resigned.

The state fair commission voted Monday to ratify its decision to ban for life the clown in question who wore an Obama mask. The rodeo announcer and a second clown wearing a microphone asked whether the crowd wanted to see him get run down by a bull.

The crowd enthusiastically approved, according to spectators, one of whom compared it to a Ku Klux Klan rally and said his mixed-race family felt threatened.

But the state commission went further Monday, saying it will require that before the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association can take part in any future state fair, “they must provide evidence to the director of the Missouri State Fair that they have proof that all officials and subcontractors of the MRCA have successfully participated in sensitivity training.”

I wonder if they ordered sensitivity training when this happened back in 1994 with a George Bush mask? Did Bill Maher have to take sensitivity training?

When you are no longer allowed to mock politicians, you have submitted utterly to their rule.

No clown should ply their trade in the Missouri
State Fair until the State Commission is completely replaced.

Apparently we need to be more sensitive to the feelings of politicians. That’s surely what they intend, isn’t it? Sensitivity training to prevent politicians from feeling bad.
