“Missouri State Fair imposes lifetime ban on Obama mask-wearing rodeo clown”
Some things just can’t be tolerated, speech or no speech. But feel free to burn a flag. While wearing your Nixon mask. Or your Reagan mask. Or either of your Bush masks. And your Che Guevera shirt. To make a statement about the duality of man.
In fact, fuck it: strap those masks onto some paper mache doll, put horns and a Hitler mustache on it, and then hang the creation in effigy! Make movies about their assassinations, and how those events — though you naturally condemn them in real life — would, you have to grudgingly posit, have changed the course of history for the better, leading to a world free of nuclear weapons and built on an egalitarian foundation of managed homogeneity — which brings peace, economic bliss, and a more tolerant world along with it.
– Provided the progressives get to run it, and don’t have to be part of the teeming masses they’ll have to lead. The poor, dumb sheep.
Because protesting Republican presidents is patriotic dissent. I know, because I spent 8 years being lectured about it.
Whereas poking fun at Obama? That’s practically the same as the murder of Emmett Till or the assassination of MLK Jr. Only worse, really, because this time, Democrats wouldn’t be responsible — and besides: historic.
Thus, such hatred must be condemned full-throatedly, even at great personal cost, because we can no longer allow ourselves to be tolerant of intolerance. We must steadfastly, instead, remain intolerant of intolerance, even if that means we ourselves display an ironic intolerance and, in our high dudgeon, eschew tolerance all together!
Because that’s the American way!
