Priorities: NAACP wants Eric Holder, Secret Service to probe rodeo clown thoroughly

The president of the Missouri NAACP chapter has called for the Secret Service and Department of Justice to investigate an “incendiary event” at the Missouri State Fair involving a rodeo clown in an Obama mask.

“The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our President are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department,” Mary Ratliff declared Tuesday.

Tuffy Gessling, the clown in question, has been banned from the fair permanently and apologized in a Facebook post, saying he “never meant to offend or hurt anyone’s feelings.” The president of the Missouri Rodeo Cowboys Association has stepped down over the controversy and faces an investigation in his day job as a school superintendent.

Dana Loesch notes that the NAACP wasn’t so upset when a black man was beaten at an Obamacare town hall in St. Louis.
