Michigan Town Bans Clown Costumes From Annual Halloween Celebration To Protect People With Clown Phobias

Unknown-1It appears that city officials in Oak Park, Michigan do not have enough crimes or infrastructure issues to address.  The officials took it upon themselves to outlaw clown halloween costumes because they are just too scary.  The illogic of the measure is only equalled by its futility.  It is precisely the type of measure that characterizes the “nanny state” where officials impose their own whims and will on citizens.  The ban from the Halloween celebration is meant to protect “people [with] phobias and anxiety about clowns.”

The ban was imposed in anticipation of

The city’s public invitation expressly states that “clown costumes are not allowed.”

Laurie Stasiak, the city’s recreation director, told the Oakland County Times that “In the past few years many clown costumes have been given a very scary and evil look.  Many scary and horror movies are centered around these types of characters.  About 3 years [ago] there were national incidents in the news were people were dressing up as clowns and scaring people and in some cases assaulting them.  Many people have phobias and anxiety about clowns.  It’s because of this that we asked people not to dress up as clowns for this community event.”

So how about those people with phobias of vombies?  In my case, I have an intense and demonstrated anxiety over public officials who try to regulate every aspect of human existence.

  1. So, being fearful of clowns is acceptable and to be encouraged and catered to, but being fearful of Muslim atrocity is prejudiced and unacceptable? John Wayne Gacy may not have been a very nice man but he did not blow up masses of people for no reason screaming the Muslim war-cry ‘Allahu Akbar!’
    Has the world gone dotty? If so, who is the beneficiary, I ask? Being innocent and harmless is simply asking to get stamped on.

  2. YNOT – the NPC pretends the Democratic Party is not the party of the KKK, slavery or Jim Crow laws. Bad scripting.

    1. Mr. Kurtz……….thanks…I’ve never seen Mark Dice….. My gosh…poor Megan is pathetic now that she’s pc.
      She had A lot of promise, until that first plastic surgery

  3. So clowns offend people, somebody is always offended by something. People with thin skin offend me.

  4. When the una bomber sent a( one) bomb, it would detonate. Whoever sent these couldn’t get one to go off. I want to keep an open mind, but something stinks here.

    1. Almost all of the people who received these packages were not in government anymore. They had special security screenings. Everyone knows you can’t mail a bomb to a former president without it getting caught in the screening process.

      Whoever it is, I hope they are found and brought to justice…before the midterms. I don’t know at this point if it’s a Democrat or a Republican, and can’t rule out either.
