Town in France Bans Clowns for Halloween

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A town in southern France has banned people from dressing up as clowns after a spate of attacks in several parts of the country.


There have been a number of assaults by people disguised as fake, evil clowns.

Some of those wreaking havoc on the streets have been armed with pistols, knives or baseball bats."

Sky News

The law bans anyone over the age of 12 from dressing up as a clown for Halloween, this law is a step in the right direction but it doesn`t go far enough. Everyone, regardless of age, should be prohibited from dressing up as a clown for Halloween, or any other day of the year.

Parents, for God`s sake, don`t let your child dress up like a clown; he will grow up to be a serial killer like John Wayne Gacy. Dress your kid as someone or something less provocative and disturbing: Hitler, Ebola virus, a jihadist, Lady Gaga, a sexy nun ...

These denizens of hell are inherently evil, corruption oozes out of every pore in their misbegotten bodies. It`s utterly ineffectual to quarantine clowns; if they aren`t destroyed their evil will infect every aspect of society.

I urge municipalities in America to follow the fine example of Vendargues, and ban clowns. I pray that all my readers will enjoy a happy, sane and clown-free Halloween.
