Halloween Special: The Dreaded Obama Mask Offends Again

0 Shares

A guy or girl – the offender was wearing a mask – got the suits at a Kentucky hospital all up in arms recently after participating in a Halloween costume contest while wearing a straitjacket and sporting the dreaded mask that gets everyone in trouble – the grotesque mask representing the likeness of President Barack Obama.

WZTV Nashville reported Tuesday that the vice president of human resources at Jennie Stuart Medical Center was apologizing to hospital staff and taking personal responsibility for the incident, and was asking that “employees refrain from political, religious, ethnic and gender-based costumes at other functions.”

A hapless rodeo clown at this year’s Missouri State Fair pioneered the Obama-impersonating martyrdom phenomenon when he dared to look like this at a rodeo back in August:

But if you’re a “True Blood” fan, perhaps you’ll remember this scene from season five (that’s way back in 2012), when a gang of gun-toting rednecks rode around the fictional town of Bon Temps, La. doing target practice on anybody whose existence they felt constituted a violation of the natural order of things:

Remember the National flap that proceeded from HBO’s misappropriation of Barry’s mug in the portrayal of – oh, my goodness – a hate group? That’s because there wasn’t one.

As for the hospital staffer who wore the Obama mask, at least there’s a silver lining: The group featuring the Obama character earned third place in the costume competition.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

        To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

        You don’t have to be a Marine to make a difference the only requirement is being truly patriotic and the willingness to back it up!!!

  • lokiswife

    How soon they forget all the rude Bush caricatures, jokes, masks and comedy skits. Fair’s fair – you had your laughs at George’s expense, now we have our laughs at Obama’s expense and the town clown gives us plenty to laugh at!

    • squeeze127

      To them, the shoe on the other foot doesn’t apply to them!

      • Gib74

        They would like it more to have it on the other foot than ~other places…

        • Peter Wang

          Before you criticise somebody, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way you are a mile away when you criticise them, and even better, you have their shoes.

          • Gib74

            What in the bloody ‘ell does being in their shoes have to do with the comment that liberals can’t take it when their wanna-be deity is shown to be mortal.

            A BADLY flawed mortal at that.

            Reading comprehension hero… Learn it, live it, love it.

            But WHY would I want to be in a lefties shoes? I’ve got to have my rear up before 4 am. My back is still messed up but I carry on throughout the day instead of crying about it all the time or taking disability money when I can still do more work than most welfare families think of doing in a month. I pay my bills. I don’t waste what money I do get on booze, games, or cars/houses I can’t afford.

            ‘Their shoes’ sounds pretty nice to be given so much for free and have new Mercedes like the Boston terrorists were given by the American people along with all those new clothes he like to be strutting around in.

            Be in their shoes?? Pfffft… I’m perfectly fine in my work-boots, thanks. = ]

      Bush didn’t throw tantrums over them either. He knew how to take humor ;)

      • bj

        Bush is so stupid he believed his own lies

        • fahkir1

          Just like you do!

          Now get back under the table.

        • Sick of NY

          And Führer Obama doesn’t ?? Bush may have been an idiot but the Führer Obama has done nothing but lie to the American people with every word that flows from his filthy mouth ! As much as I dislike Liberals, even Slick Willy got a laugh when people made fun of him. Your Führer is clinically narcissistic, any psychologist can attest to that.

        • Robert Messmer

          At least President Bush’s classmates in college remember him being there.

      The town clown gives us plenty to laugh at and more to cry over.

  • Peter Wang

    Hmmm!: “employees refrain from political, religious, ethnic and gender-based costumes at other functions.” Doesn’t leave much to wear does it. Guests will be reduced to turning up in their underwear sporting bow-ties and pearl necklaces. What’s a gender-based costume anyway? The world as we know it, has gone mad. I want to know why no one in authority ever tells these PC people to shove it.

    • bliiybob

      It isn’t the world that has gone mad, it is just that those who are the minority and in charge, have the power to dictate to the majority what they can wear and do. It is backwards and unless we the majority tell the minority to shove off they will continue to desolve your freedoms to express yourself.

      • Vis Fac

        bliiy The minority is now the MAJORITY the working responsible folks are the minority. How else do these inane acts and laws get approval? Stupidity runs amok and we just sit and watch never saying anything lest we be offensive. I am not politically correct and I say what’s on my mind and if whoever I say it to cannot handle it I suggest they see their therapist.

        To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      Peter it’s Political Correctness gone amok. We mustn’t “offend” anyone right.

      They don’t care how much I am “offended” by their stupidity but that’s OK they are the offensive ones and they’re “allowed”!!!!!

    • Robert Messmer

      Superman and Wonder Woman come to mind as gender-based costumes, but that probably is not what the VP was mouthing off about. Can’t go to their functions dressed as a homosexual or lesbian? Would it be wrong for a Jewish person to go dressed as a Rabbi?

  • Lizard

    I guess truth hurts Obama fans

  • Lizard

    Gee how bad to hurt Obama feelings big baby

    • Motov

      Better to hurt his widdle feelings, than what we all like to “hurt”,…LOL

      Janus – is that you again!?

      • Robert Wood

        YEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Warrior

    I’m offended by the mask and the real deal. Both are totally FRAUDULENT!

  • joe1cr

    The mask is great, the only problem with it is I can not tell if Obama is lying as the lips on it never move. ‘Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of chit by it’s clean end.

  • paendragon

    I WANT ONE OF THOSE! WHO MAKES THEM, AND WHERE CAN I GET ONE?

  • Corsica

    Why the fk is the VP of Human Resources apologizing for the “incident”. Pres Barry is fair game like anyone else. You’d think he was fkg Stalin or something, which he acts like. Fk anybody who’s offended.

    • garygerke

      Your right, plus it is our first amendment right!
      This skinny black man has undone all that MLK did for racism in America! Barry….you need to get over it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Idiot needs to get a sense of humor, being pres, he is a prime target–I remember Regan Masks–did not hear one word–JFK masks–nothing–what seems to be the problem now? All pres have had halloween masks, he is an arrogant B*****

  • JimH

    TRICK OR TREAT. It has to be a nasty trick, because it certainly isn’t a treat.

  • Fred

    Ironically enough, you can do an internet search and find SNL skits, and other comedy parodies, for presidents dating back to the inception of motion pictures, but anything poking fun at king Obama gets scrubbed within 48 hrs (probably what all of the IT staff that should be addressing the Obamacare site is busy doing). Try searching the infamous Obama/Hu Jintao skit from SNL, you won’t find it, if you do it won’t be up more than couple days max before it’s scrubbed. Youtube always cites “copyright infringement” as their standard excuse for taking down Obama parodies, yet the skits remain on youtube for all past presidents, no infringement there….

  • Fred

    I saw a tshirt that says:

    This is my Obama costume, give me all your candy so I can redistribute it !

    • Motov

      LMAO

  • Hoosier Daddy

    I bought an Obama mask to wear when driving in case I get snapped by a speed camera. Maybe I should stop so I don’t wind up in the national “news.”

  • Sam

    How about an obama mask with a turd hat?

  • mari

    There are masks of every president. Why can no one wear a mask of Prince Obama?
