Dana Carvey, The Rodeo Clown and The Head On A Stick
“You Are Ruled By Those You Are Not Allowed To Criticize.” – Voltaire
There’s one hell of a dragon egg hidden in Game of Thrones season one. Turns out one of the many heads on a spike decorating King’s Landing belonged to ex-president George Bush. Warning spoilers ahead. If you keep your eyes peeled when King Joffrey takes Sansa Stark to gaze upon the spiked head of her dead father around 12 minutes in, you’ll notice that one of the heads looks slightly familiar. Show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explained in their DVD commentary (from Season 1, episode 10) that the decapitated head is actually George Bush.
You had to feel for the poor guys over on the set of Game of Thrones. They had this scene where King Joffrey took his girlfriend Sansa on a tour of all the heads he’d recently severed,* but were short a few plastic masks to paint up as decaying cadaver heads. They couldn’t seem to locate any Jerry Brown or Arnold Schwarzenegger faces so they were forced, against their better judgment**, to use a facial likeness of President George W. Bush. It’s amazing how accidents happen. It wasn’t anything, you know, political. And who can forget how hilarious Dana Carvey used to be. “A thousand points of light!” he’d intone in his most mocking imitation of a President George H. W. Bush in the middle of the 1992 election campaign. But this was “comedy.” He wouldn’t do that to influence any voters, now would he? It’s all in good fun you Crazy Wingnuts, so lighten up.
Now we get to the amusing goings on over at the Missouri State Fair. It seems a rodeo clown there came up with the idea of running around in front of an angry bull wearing a Barack Obama Mask. It wasn’t hilariously funny. Better than Letterman’s jokes about A-Rod knocking up Sarah Palin’s children between HGH injections, but not on a level with vintage Dana Carvey SNL. The Left was of course tolerate and patient. They decided to just let the lowbrows do their “Dance of The Sloping Foreheads.” It’s just comedy they reasoned. It can’t hurt anyone. Oh Wait….
Just listen to how detestable liberals who thought Dana Carvey was “just kidding” and that the poor props guys over on Game of Thrones used “inappropriate judgement” have reacted. Will nobody rid them of this insane clown posse?!
The audience was asked, over a public address system, if it wanted to see Mr. Obama “run down by a bull.” Many people present clapped and cheered, according to one witness, Perry Beam. “It was feeling like some kind of Klan rally,” said Mr. Beam.
So obviously Mr. Beam got told he could switch to the heavier tampon size if he can’t take a joke at this stage of his menstrual cycle. It was just “comedy” after all. What type of a world leader can’t take an occasional joke at his expense? It’s not like he was accused of being the Devil by a 3rd World dictator at UN HQ or anything. No. Apparently Americans are dumb enough to actually vote for the type of world leader that can’t take a joke. And not only that, we must now have more sensitive rodeo clowns.*** I assure you that you can’t distract 800 lbs of pissed-off beef-on-the-hoof without the ability to make that latte’ with just the right froth.
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.”
This is how great nations die and go to Hell in a hand basket. We’ve got people who oppose our way of life in Syria who show off in front of You-Tube by eating the guts of the people they’ve killed on the battlefield. We’ve got cultural enemies in Yemen who deliberately contract marriage with and deflower 6-year-old girls so that other men won’t kidnap them because they are no longer virginal. And who is in charge of America? Our guy is so thin-skinned that Rodeo Clowns get sent to sensitivity training for making fun of him during a bull-riding event. No wonder President Putin has told us point-blank he’ll arrest any activist gays he finds on our Olympic Team. This assumes we can still compete in places where the venue coordinators haven’t been to the appropriate sensitivity training.
But ultimately this feigned outrage, this shock over the fact that The Great State of Missouri doesn’t have sensitive Rodeo Clowns is a power play. It is a way to impose a set of cultural values and a way of life on others through authoritarian bullying. When The NAACP demands that the DOJ and Secret Service get called in to investigate an immature rodeo clown, this is deliberate and targeted overkill. The Fascist power of being professionally offended should never be underestimated. After all, Voltaire was very perceptive about the power that comes with being immune from any type of negative critique.
*-Not quite as amusing as the time when teenaged Ivan The Terrible actually did play war against the other kids using live ammo, but still an odd choice for a date night if you ask me.
**-Yep, they ran that up the flagpole as a BS excuse.
***- Good Gawd, what pathetic cliché’ Leftism. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
