I don't think it was racist at all nor incited violence against Obama because he's black. I mean despite the antics there were no verbal threats made nor any comments what so ever that were racist in any way shape or form. And so what if the mask was black? Obama just happens to be black. I mean if it was a mask of a president that was Scottish I'm sure the mask would be white as snow with red hair but that doesn't mean it's racist towards Scottish people. All this is are the Liberal Democrats are so incredibly wound up over race that their party has become psychotic over the subject. Now I'm not a Conservative myself and do consider myself a Democrat but I'm one of the few that doesn't seem to see racism hidden under every bed or learning in dark corners of my mind. ha ha It's the extremists that are ruining the Democratic party by being so psychotic over racism.

There are no grounds what so ever to arrest that rodeo clown and in fact there was no real reason for him even to be fired. There was nothing racist about the entire thing. What I think is happening is that a majority of Liberal Democrats are so overly hyped up about racism that they have actually become psychotic over the subject. Also Liberals are always falsely accusing people of stuff to find their "token bad guys" be it false rape charges, racism, unfair political moves, or anything. This rodeo clown did nothing wrong. The mask was black because Obama just happens to be black case closed. The only reason the man got fired was for Public Relations because the United States of America is full of Professional Victims gone psychotic over race issues where there are none.

"Speech said in jest is protected."

Since when? Show me where it says that in the Constitution.

And try telling that to the NSA officers at the airport the next time you "jest" about having a bomb in your suitcase.

Then see how "protected" you are.

Political Correctness gone mad!!!

All this over a mask that if you remember a few years back when it was a GW Bush mask, everyone thought it was Funny !!

Yet we give this IDIOT Obama a pass for Bengahzi, Fast and Furious, spying on our citizens, the Obama care fiasco, Ft Hood workplace violence, shovel ready jobs lies , his involvement in The Trayvon Case and the rest ..to many to mention failures of his term.

This whole mask thing proves one thing his skin pigment shields his Incompetence. When the going gets tough ..deflect and find a racist angle and stand behind it.

OBAMA = 100% FAILURE

Can people not grasp the concept that Obama nor the Democratic / Liberal base had an any issue with the rodeo mask stunt? It was the MO Fair Director.

It's because the Democrappers are so thinned-skinned and have to distact American people from all Obama's disasters.

The Republicans have one goal: To destroy the white race. Don't be fooled by Republican rhetoric! The Republican party hates the white man and wants to keep him down. They talk a big game about advancing our white race, but they pass laws that put our white brothers in prison and keep us as the lowest class! Republicans are the biggest racists there are, and they hate whites!

I hate whites too...
