)-- It was reported on CNNiReport on July 3, 2012, that a crude effigy was produced during the rodeo on Saturday night, and then violently beaten and destroyed in response to an announcer's call to the audience: "Who wants to rip Obama's head off?"
"The National Atheist party is horrified that anyone of any political ideology could think that it is appropriate to behave in this manner. While such conduct probably should be characterized as protected speech, the mere fact that the office of the President of the United States is subject to this level of disrespect and hatred speaks volumes as to how far U.S. conservatives have strayed from ethical and bipartisan cooperation. This is a clear and compelling display of irreconcilable division." Troy Boyle, President, National Atheist Party
