Dana Loesch defends racist Obama clown stunt at the Missouri State Fair

Racist excuse-making teabagger  and St. Louis's Public Toxic Enemy #1 Dana Loesch defended the clown who played Barack Obama at the Missouri State Fair this past Saturday. The announcer identified as the idiot who decided to use the event for anti-Obama propaganda was Boonville Schools Superintendent Mark Ficken. The school board ought to terminate him from his position unless he resigns. 

RedState.com in which Loesch wrote this rubbish:
A rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair over the weekend donned an Obama mask instead of typical clown fare. The clown, a participant in the fair and not officially representative of the fair, broke the new golden rule: thou shalt not mock the President. [Show Me Progress photo]
The acceptance of taxpayer dollars equals the forfeiture of free speech. Democrats should be careful with that rule, considering their policies.
[...]But if they’re attempting to argue that free speech is restricted if one receives federal funding, progressives tie their own hands with policy.
Personally, I prefer to express dissent in a different manner. If there is evidence to justify the claim of violent threats that haven’t been reported, by all means, investigate. However, if this is an attempt to criminalize ridicule of political figures by way of identity politics, then no one can ridicule. Everyone is something and speech will cease to be free.
She further defended it as "free speech" and satire on twitter:

What happened at the Missouri State Fair is NOT a "nontroversy." 

Yael T. Abouhalkah at the Kansas City Star rightfully tells the truth about what happened at the Missouri State Fair:
The taxpayer-supported Missouri State Fair got a lot of negative publicity Sunday following a report of a shameful stunt that occurred Saturday night in Sedalia.
The story by an eyewitness, Perry Beam, is posted to Daily Kos and Show Me Progress.
Fortunately, by late Sunday evening, The Star reported that many top officials — from Gov. Jay Nixon to leading Republicans — were denouncing the incident.
Basically, a clown wearing a mask of President Barack Obama came out during the bull riding event at the fair. The crowd was asked if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull.” (UPDATE: 6:55 p.m.: Here is short video of part of the incident: “We’re going to smoke Obama, man,” says announcer.) 
Things got worse from there, which doesn’t surprise me, given the anti-Obama feeling among many fairgoers from rural Missouri, where Obama lost to Mitt Romney (at least 60-40 percent in much of outlying parts of state) in 2012 election.
Egged on by the crowd and the announcer, “One of the clowns ran up and started bobbling the lips on the mask and the people went crazy. Finally, a bull came close enough to him that he had to move, so he jumped up and ran away to the delight of the onlookers hooting and hollering from the stands.” 
Obviously this is a horrible show of respect for the President of the United States at a public event at the state fair— which got more than $400,000 from Missouri state taxpayers this year.
It’s also borderline illegal; the U.S. Secret Service takes threats against the president seriously. While the president himself was in no danger here, it’s the kind of stupid activity that could give nuts ideas about harming the president.
As a result of my viewpoints and reporting about Loesch's idiocy, I get torched by some righties on twitter over it.

Loesch, on Twitter, once again put her tired old smears against this blogger for exposing the truth about loons like her:

Dana, if you don't like being called out on your lies and distortions, too fucking bad! As long as you keep your distortion games up, I will continue to call you out on your BS! And I proudly see getting blocked by Dana and Chris Loesch as a badge of honor.

Her fanbase trolls smeared me for telling it like it is about these right-wing assholes:
