18h UTC; MONDAY, 12 AUGUST 2013: No wonder there are certain specimens of conservative Zealotry and True Belief who have this delusional idea about what they call "White Culture" being entitled to "natural dominance as of right" ... and same is somehow supposedly "under clear and present threat and attack" by the forces of multiculturalism and diversity supposedly "under the New World Order's nefarious and sinister control and influence," with "no regard whatsoever for White Cultural Identity and Integrity, and the natural right of dominance" that "unwritten tradition," or so they think, bestows thereon.

And Saturday evening's Unfortunate Events at the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia have taken this delusional notion of "White Cultural Supremacy" to new lows and depths of depravity. Not to mention recalling, at least to Your Correspondent, where dictatorial and totalitarian regimes have this affinity for using sport and culture as propaganda weapons and tools, in particular as a distractive from the enforced poverty and privation the State  subjected the masses to; classic examples thereof include the Nazi regime's exploiting the 1934 jubilee season of the Oberammergau Passion Play as an anti-Semitic propaganda tool ... the then-Soviet Union using its circuses as anti-American propaganda conduits from time to time ... and South Africa's apartheid regime using their national rugby team, the Springboks, as an example of White Afrikaner Dominance as of Natural, Divinely-Ordained Right.

In any event, the Missouri State Fair now has serious egg on its face, and then some, in the fallout from Saturday's Unfortunate Events, video of which has gone viral across Teh Innerwebz. And, inevitably, has drawn its share of criticism from all quarters across the Show-Me State, paying no attention to political or ideological differences. Consider:
  • A statement from the Missouri Rodeo Cowboys Association (MRCA), under whose sanction and auspices said rodeo was held, stated that it was "dealing with the situation firmly and quickly," adding that "The Sport of Rodeo is not meant to be a political platform.... We are taking measures by training and educating our contract acts to prevent anything like this from ever happening again.”
  • The Missouri State Fair issued the following Appy Polly Loggy: “The performance by one of the rodeo clowns at Saturday’s event was inappropriate and disrespectful, and does not reflect the opinions or standards of the Missouri State Fair. We strive to be a family friendly event and regret that Saturday’s rodeo badly missed that mark.”
  • Statement by Scott  Holste, press secretary to Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (Democrat): “The governor agrees that the performance was disrespectful and offensive, and does not reflect the values of Missourians or the State Fair.”
  • Successive Tweets from Missouri Lieutennant-Governor Peter Kinder (Republican) in response: “I love the MoStateFair and will attend this week. I implore GovJayNixon to hold the people responsible for the other night accountable.” A few minootas later: “The MoStateFair celebrates Missouri and our people. I condemn the actions disrespectful to POTUS the other night. We are better than this.”
  • At least one Missouri state legislator has gone on record stating that he would be boycotting the Missouri State Fair henceforth.
  • Missouri's Democratic United States Senator, Claire McCaskill, noted that the Missouri State Fair receives taxpayer monies and that young people in attendance obviously got bad ideas by the performance, adding that "Missouri is better than this and I expect someone to be held accountable."


By contrast, the Minnesota State Fair, as opens its annual run Thursday week, has received no public monies of any kind since 1949, notwithstanding where its enablers, the Minnesota State Agricultural Society, are a State of Minnesota agency and insturmentality; instead, it relies on a mix of revenue from gate admissions, Grandstand performances, Mighty Midway and Kidway ride tickets, lease of exhibitor and concession space, parking fees, use of its facilities for non-Fair events throughout the year (notably the Back to the '50's car show and swap meet, the Minnesota Beef Expo and the Friends School Plant Sale) and winter storage of trailers and campers. Not to mention being the sole beneficiary of the Minnesota State Fair Foundation, which serves to preserve and maintain the Minnesota State Fairgrounds (as has been thus since 1885) and makes possible the Minnesota State Fair's several educational and cultural programmes, including the Moo, Baa and Oink Booths, Little Farm Hands and the amusements on several free stages across the State Fairgrounds. Is it any wonder that the Minnesota State Fair has actually managed to consistently attract over 1 million visitors run-of-fair every year since 1955?

In any event, such a disgraceful show of so-called "White Culture" as (dis)graced the Missouri State Fair's good name and repute for years to come has basically made the whole concept of "White Culture" a farce and a joke. As it ought to be in these presumably enlightened and advanced times that those who push the "White Culture" trope whine about being the eventual decline and ruin of Thy Dear and Lovely Nation, even with their vainglorious attempts at using His Name to try and save said Nation (even to the extent of parroting what Afrikaner Nationalists down South Africa way long saw as one of their Sanctii Sanctorum, as in die Gelofte of one Sarel Cilliers ahead of the 1838 battle of Blood River).
