Texas Congressman Steve Stockman has invited the rodeo clown who mocked President Obama to perform at a rodeo in the 36th district of Texas.
This rodeo performer mocked the president by wearing a mask of him during the Missouri State Fair.
He then stood where the bulls were while the DJ yelled, “We’re going to stomp Obama now…”As soon as this bull comes out, Obama, don’t you move. He’s going to getcha, getcha, getcha, getcha.”
After some public outrage, the rodeo clown was banned from performing at any rodeo in the entire state. He also offered up an apology and is required to take sensitivity training.
However, Rep. Steve Stockman believes that the performer was just taking advantage of his First Amendment right, tweeting this in support of the clown’s performance:
Liberals are offended by rodeo clowns because rodeo clowns perform useful work.

Stockman’s press release also stated:
“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with,” said Stockman, “From Molly Ivins to Louie Gohmert and every opinion between Texans value free and open political speech. I’m sure any rodeo in Texas would be proud to have performers.”
“Disagreeing with speech is one thing. Banning it and ordering citizens into reeducation classes for mocking a liberal leader is another,” said Stockman. “Liberals have targeted this man for personal destruction to create a climate of fear.”
What else is there to say? The GOP never ceases to amaze…..
