Russell Simmons LOL’d at Harriet Tubman rape video, but … rodeo clown! What say you, Obama?

Civility lecturer Russell Simmons published a “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape” video that he called the “funniest thing I’ve ever seen.” Because, y’know, LOL at slave rape humor and the pornification of the heroic Tubman.

After his “buddies from the NAACP” called, Simmons removed the degrading video and reminded everyone how awesomely liberal he is. The hip-hop tycoon apologized “if people r hurt” and retweeted a message declaring him “da Harriet Tubman for our generation.”

Here we go again: Liberalism as a defense against the indefensible.

Yes, won’t that be fascinating?

Can we expect beer summits and personal phone calls and the White House leading a national conversation on racism and misogyny? Will President Obama declare that his supporter, Russell Simmons, “could have been me“? Or will Simmons get a pass since he didn’t do anything as offensive as slipping on a rubber Obama mask?


Oh, there might very well be a phone call from the White House:

Stay tuned for the inevitable liberal hypocrisy.

The free passes are out there, however, the spankings are a far cry from the outrage inspired by the Missouri rodeo clown in an Obama mask.

Lefty UPenn professor Anthea Butler wanted to imprison the creator of that crappy YouTube video that wasn’t responsible for the terrorist attack in Benghazi last year. She’s more than willing to school Simmons, but it looks like he’ll get off without jail time.

Then there’s the ol’ publicity stunt excuse:

Let’s close this out with some delicious retweets of Simmons’ past tweets.

As we know, self-awareness is super hard for Simmons.

  • BlahBlah

    Since when did Russel Simmons become a self help guru? BRB Must go chant.

  • Clayton Grant

    “Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you.” – Russell Simmons
    So, just about any 15 yr old would do?

    • CatHerder

      If you can find one that likes Harriet Tubman porn.

    • Osumashi Kinyobe

      For him, any amoeba would do.

    • Jay Stevens

      No, particularly stupid 15 year olds would do.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Anyone remember another video maker who made a video that other people considered distasteful? Isn’t he STILL in jail? Could it possibly be that these Egypt riots are a direct result of this Harriet Tubman video?…………… Shouldn’t Obama and Susan Rice be out there kissing disenfranchised butts, making grandiose apologies, attacking the video, and throwing the video’s producers in jail?……………….. Oh well, at this point in time, what difference does it make?

  • Republicanvet

    Pretty sad

  • Republicanvet

    As I was trying to post using the droid Twitchy app…
    Pretty sad when the left is so rabid at decimating rodeo clowns rather than jihadis over running the middle east.

  • Magnifico

    Obama’s such an ego-driven little bitch. If he had any class, he’d defend the rodeo clown.

    • World B. Free

      Well, he has no class, so he won’t.

  • Republicanvet

    So when is Preezy YOLO appearing at the UN to apologize for Simmons video?

    • World B. Free

      Just as soon as he’s finished with his golf and Beluga caviar with the Comcast CEO.

  • Drinky McGee

    OUTRAGE!!! I hope Harriet Tubman is ok. Has anyone talked to her?

    • wwbdinct

      It goes right over your pointy little head, doesn’t it? It’s the liberal hypocrisy Stoopid!

    • Jill

      Are ‘films’ that couple rape and slavery favored in your household?

  • ObamaFail

    I wonder how this will be spun into another story of “white privilege.”

  • FlatFoot

    Mr. Simmons has woefully underestimated Harriett Tubman and has done her memory a great disservice. But, then again, now she and her amazing humanitarian deeds might be the ‘hot topic’ of discussion for awhile — plus… BONUS!    ‘Hating Whitey’ will get a breath of fresh air too, so there’s always that.

    • unknown

      I’m sorry but I cannot stop laughing at that picture

  • twinx

    Barack Obama: “Who the f%$* is Harriet Tubman????”

    • Juliette Akinyi Ochieng


  • neoface

    Only in America, a person with limited vocabulary can become a millionaire. It just goes to show money can’t buy class.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Careful, Larry “the Cable Guy” or Yakov Smirnov might sue ya for using that line… XD LOL! Jawamax 8<{D}

      • Raj Arjan

        You only think that Larry and Yakov have a limited vocabulary. Hint: It’s part of the act.

  • CO2 Producer

    Is it okay for me to laugh at this? I just don’t know anymore.

  • Richard Jefferies

    Harriet Tubman mockery is okay with lefties because she tried to free the slaves. She apparently wasn’t black enough. She should have just stayed on the Democrat plantation (the real one). Harriet Tubman is another example of a black conservative being ridiculed.

  • therealguyfaux

    Harriet Tubman explains it all for you:

    See, y’all don’t be gittin’ da point–

    ‘Sawright t’ make fun of a heroic black woman, when de white man in dat video be de butt o’ de joke– she be gittin’ ovah, playin’ Marse fo’ a fool!

    Ain’ awright t’ make fun of a heroic black man, when he be de butt o’ de joke, an’ you be playin’ HIM fo’ a fool.

  • HinterlandG

    Money can’t buy you class. Russell Simmons couldn’t dream much less actually walk in Harriet Tubman’s shoes.

  • Laurel

    The left doesn’t give a damn about a rodeo clown…they just weaponize any and everything for personal gain.

    And if they really and truly do care about that rodeo clown then they are dumber than I ever thought they were.

  • Osumashi Kinyobe

    This jackhole has a golden toilet. Of course he would laugh at such filth.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    What a gift! It is our sacred duty to God and The United States of America to make sure to never let Ol’ Uncle Rush live this down. Tweet him once a day. Mention him at rallies. Call in about him. If you’re active in the black community, what an compelling discussion this could start. Any professors talking about all the ways Libs are truer than cons, cite this.

  • mmoore229

    The predicable left comes out with their forgiveness of their own. Dr. Marc Lamont Hill states that the only thing he saw wrong was the video was not very artistically done. Not, its content, but its “artistic value”.

    • Sons Thunder

      These are just two of Dr. Hill’s tweets that directly contradict your claim; these tweets had been up for 16 hours when you made your factually-inaccurate claim.

      More importantly, this video sanitizes the vicious effects of slavery. It trivializes the everyday practice of rape against Black women.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) August 15, 2013

      By saying that the video was the "funniest thing I've ever seen," @UncleRUSH is endorsing rape culture and disrespecting a revered elder.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) August 15, 2013

      • mmoore229

        well there is this one also: Marc Lamont Hill

        First of all, the Harriet Tubman video wasn’t even funny. On a basic artistic level, it wasn’t well done

        • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

          Just like “The Innocence of Muslim” (which I saw) Jawamax 8<{D}

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    He even disgraces the team on his baseball cap….To HELL with Steroid Scandals, @UncleRush You call George Zimmerman “White Racist” (HINT: HISPANIC!), same thought on KING FINK RODEO CLOWN OBAMA, but you degradate a GREAT HERO! I hope KARMA knows where you live… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • SophieRo3

    ‘I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.’

    – Harriet Tubman

    Too bad so many are unaware that they are slaves.

  • Jay Stevens


    Why all the outrage? We are witnessing typical liberal black behavior followed by the typical weasel worded liberal apology, “I apologize if you were offended.” It is behavior we have learned to expect.

    And we see Prof. Anthea Butler mildly scolding him and trolling for students.

    And this is what the Republican inspired Voting Rights Act of 1964 has led to. Sometimes I despair.
