    Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) has invited the rodeo clown that was banned for life from Missouri state fairs to perform in Texas’s 36th District. The unnamed man made headlines after he wore a President Barack Obama mask and asked the audience if they wanted to see Obama run down by a bull.

    “Liberals want to bronco bust dissent,” Stockman said in an e-mailed statement. “But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with.”

    Stockman said Texans would welcome such performers to their state.

    “I’m sure any rodeo in Texas would be proud to have performers,” he said.

    Stockman noted that the rodeo clown apparently has been ordered to get sensitivity training.

    “Disagreeing with speech is one thing,” Stockman said. “Banning it and ordering citizens into reeducation classes for mocking a liberal leader is another.”
