Flashback: Liberals Were Silent When George Bush Dummies Were Used at Rodeos

Rodeos have used presidential masks on dummies for decades.

A photo surfaced last year showing clowns taking down a dummy with a Barrack Obama mask at a recent rodeo.

Back in 1994, the cowboys used George Bush dummies at the Woodstown, Pennsylvania rodeo.
For some reason, the liberals didn’t seem to mind this too much.
Philly.com reported:

“The big white gate flew open. The bull came out bucking. The rider flopped from side to side and the bullfighters held back, letting the bull make his moves until the rider dropped off. Licciardello crouched in a heavily padded barrel, a human target should the bull decide to charge. Hawkins waited near the barrel, holding his big inner tube. A dummy with a George Bush mask stood beside the clown, propped up by a broomstick.“…

…”.J. Hawkins rolled out the big inner tube, and the bull lowered his head, shot forward and launched into the tube, sending it bounding down the center of the arena. The crowd cheered. Then the bull saw the George Bush dummy.

He tore into it, sending the rubber mask flying halfway across the sand as he turned toward the fence, sending cowboys scrambling up the fence rails, hooking one with his horn and tossing him off the fence.”

More… Today the Missouri State Fair imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.
