Why clowns? Why now? Why ever? While I know that there have always been people that have had huge issues with the painted faces and large red noses and perpetually grinning lips. I for one, have never undertood what generates the fear? In anycase, clowns are here and here to stay and pop up in strange places it seems.
I see articles on clown sightings, menacing clowns, clowns just looking at you and clowns that get beat down. Not to mention some stories about down right mean clowns that try to abduct little children. So, I was wondering, why clowns. What exactly is happening with our society that clowns need to come out and start making these vast assortments of visitations?
While I don’t suppose I’ll ever find out the answer, this whole clowning around stuff has brought up a powerful thought. Why should people be judging clowns? I mean, we get all upset at people being negative towards people of color, or with religios differences, or alternate gender identities. So why should clowns get any different treatment?
Perhaps the clowns have simply had enough of being third rate citizens? Maybe they, like the organizations of “Black Lives Matter,” and “He for She,” have finally come together and decided to let the country know about their plight.
In any case, I don’t think people should be just randomly assulting clowns or shouting at them. Now, if a clown is infact break the law, then by all means, we must use the necessary course to bring them to justice. But to have clown be smashed down, just because they decided to smile on any given day… Well that’s just wrong.
