When they come for Hubbers will there be anyone left to speak out?
LOL, if you're implying that deciding not to contract with a company whose employee behaved inappropriately on the job unless the company provides additional training to its employees is the equivalent of the Nazis coming for the Jews, then all I can do is chuckle at your misplaced drama.
If you see no abridgment Free Speech, than all I can do is laugh. A CLOWN mocking a President is hardly inappropriate conduct. If using the power of government to re-educate free people is not tyranny, than all I can do is laugh.
Are you against the right of an employer to determine what is appropriate behavior on the job? Are you against the right of an employer to require a specific type of training for its employees?
You are WAY over dramatizing this incident.
We have wrongly come to believe that tyranny is the execution of some grand plan that quickly strips a people of their liberty. It is a glacial progression away from freedom and toward tyranny.
A clown acting like a clown is acceptable behavior when the President is Republican or white - just as Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, both widely mocked by clowns everywhere. But let the President be black and there is no room for free expression.

The Hollow Men by T.S. Elliot
The over 100,000 people killed in Syria, were oppressed by their government. The hundreds that have been killed in Egypt this week, were oppressed by their government. The rodeo clown who was fired from a private company for behaving in a way his employer didn't approve of, has yet to even be so much as inconvenienced by his government.
This guy wasn't thrown in prison for making fun of President Obama, he wasn't beaten or tortured. His family wasn't rounded up in the middle of the night and used as leverage against him. In fact, after he got fired, Congressman Stockman (R) TX. offered him a job at a rodeo there.
I love the 1st amendment as much as anyone, and I'm certainly no fan of the President, but let's not go overboard here on this one.
Given these criteria there would never have been an American Revolution.
An entertainment company did something their contract said they cannot do--they lost the contract.
Big whoop. If I did something party-political on the job the same thing would happen to me.

Why was it okay then but not now?
Because the governor of the state didn't dance on strings pulled by the NAACP who are so irritated by any criticism of Obama that a clown acting like a clown is offensive.

Why are so many people afraid of clowns?Some people are absolutely freaked out by clowns, as if they were some Hollywood horror monster. I don't get it. They are silly looking, and meant to make us laugh.

Can you describe the scariest clown you have seen and where you saw it?
