If any of you where on twitter in October, you know who Lupe Fiasco is. He is the rapper who repeatedly tweeted about the "American system of government" ,"black people should never vote",and how he is proud to say he has never voted for anyone.

The rant from tonight has been called anti Obama, but it was really anti American as he has been ranting since Bush was in office.

sorry for the source, the story is still fresh.

I do find it a little weird that Republicans are defending him on twitter. Lupe is the same man who claimed 9/11 was a false flag operation, that we should not have fought al-queda, the same man that says he does not pledge allegiance to the flag.

Sounds like a mentally disturbed imbecile. Precisely the sort of person I'd expect to be one of Obama's greatest supporters.

Everything he said is true. I don't pledge allegiance to that flag either. 9/11 was an inside job.

Obvious question is, why was he asked to perform in the first place? Just to maximize the "Chicago" connection or something?

Have you ever seen the argument between him and Bill O'Reilly before? If not, its posted below this.


Lupe Fiasco vs. Bill O'Reilly in Edited Fox Interview - 6/20/2011 - YouTube

Anyways Lupe Fiasco is against the establishment essentially of America, he believes that every American President is a terrorist. He's one of my favorite musicians but I don't always appreciate what he has to say. I'm against some of the policies America has implemented over the past and present, and believe that reform can happen to this country great again, but I can't be against the entire American system as he is.

He isn't a imbecile, he's actually one of the more intelligent hip-hop artist, essentially he rebels against any government not just America's. He's what's known as an anarchist, if you didn't know.

Fiasco is noted for his anti-establishment views. In an interview with Stephen Colbert on the satirical news show The Colbert Report, Fiasco stated his credo on political philosophy: "You should criticize power even if you agree with it."[77] In another interview in June 2011 on the CBS program What's Trending, Fiasco discussed the political content of his music, stating, "My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America. I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists."[78] He additionally criticized Obama for his stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.[79] In keeping with his anti-establishment views, Fiasco does not vote in U.S. elections.[77]


Yep. I agree with that all.
