To the president of the Missouri NAACP, who is saying that the rodeo clown who mocked President Obama during the Missouri State Fair should be criminally charged: You are a bloody IDIOT.
Look, the original action was breathtakingly rude, racist, hateful, and only made the people involved (including those applauding) look like total hicks. (Sorry to my friends who live in Missouri, but if you want a state with a good reputation, move.)
But was this a hate crime? No.
If we can't mock our elected public officials, slap my ass and call us true tyranny.
Blah, blah, First Amendment, blah, blah.
