A crowd attending a rodeo show at the Missouri State Fair this weekend whooped and hollered as the announcer called for a clown wearing an Obama mask "to get gored," according to the Raw Story.

"I felt like I was at a Klan rally," Missouri State Fair goer Perry Beam told Raw Story, his outrage stoked by watching a rodeo crowd whoop and holler at a clown wearing an Obama mask while an announcer asked "Who wants to see Obama get trampled?" this weekend.

The fair – which is established by the Missouri Legislature – is formally a nonpartisan event. "This isn't a Republican state fair," Beam said. "I want to write the governor and the fair board, because I want my money back. This was shameful."
