Heh. Lupe Fiasco is a rapper not known for being a shrinking violet. Fiasco performed at an inauguration party last night and was kicked off the stage after speaking ill of President Obama. How dare he criticize The One?

Event attendees, including Foreign Policy magazine’s Josh Rogin, reported from on the scene.

What the rapper do and say?

https://twitter.com/_Syriana_/status/293321364578902017

Heh. Yes, they did. And Twitter continued to buzz over the rapper all night.

Lupe Fiasco criticizing Obama for not addressing racism

Chris Geidner, a BuzzFeed reporter, clutches pearls and thinks it was oh-so-tacky.

And the event organizer wasn’t so excited afterward.

Then tries to deny the reason for the booting.

Oh, it was just about crowd (a cheering crowd) dissatisfaction, you see. Blogger SooperMexican points out some hypocrisy there.

Oh you filthy liberals are so quick to whine when people protest against you, and so happy to support those to criticize your political opponents at any event…

Ding, ding, ding! Others point out the hilarity of the organizers being “disappointed.” Do they not know who Lupe Fiasco is?

https://twitter.com/dascruggs/status/293252528865423360

Had the event organizers read Twitchy or, you know, googled, they would have know. Here’s a heads-up for next time:

Or, his Wikipedia page.

Some Twitter users bring up freedom of speech.

https://twitter.com/SUPERCUDER/status/293321424913977344

https://twitter.com/Cabeza_De_Huevo/status/293252850606288896

It was a private event, so that doesn’t apply. However, other Twitter users point out the hypocrisy. When was the last time a performer was booted for rants against Republican politicians or policies? It’s only frowned upon, to the point where one is booted from the stage, if aimed at The One.

Bingo. And these folks sum it all up with signature Twitter snark.

Hmm. Stay tuned!

    Apparently, the libbos were uninformed again. They were caught flat-footed again by their ignorance and typical “out-of-touchness”!

    • qualityrkc

      out of touch??? Lol we are the trendsetters. Liberals aren’t out of touch we are the ones who make things cool and hip. Maybe when I turn on the tv and see people square dancing in a burka will I agree that conservativesw are the ones who are in touch with the pulse of society.

      • Teresa Davis McCormick

        Trendsetters?? guess what……the left is mainstream now. How does it feel to be just like everyone else. Free thinking people are the rebels now.

        • qualityrkc

          Doesn’t change the fact that liberals are trendsetters in the arts and sciences. You mad??

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            actually liberals are quite common folk nowadays. No edgy, modern thinkers that I’ve seen. If you know of one, please let me know. That would be really refreshing.

        • qualityrkc

          And btw liberals always have been mainstream in america. The founders were the most liberal guys of their times. Hell even jesus was a huge liberal.

  • Teresa Davis McCormick

    This is a perfect example of the left wing racism. The organizers saw a black rapper and just assumed he was an Obama supporter. Without even checking out his lyrics or his political stance. I bet he was cracking up when he was called to do the gig. He knew he would be ousted, I bet. They played right into his hands. Dumbasses

    • qualityrkc

      Evidence? Wouldn’t making an assumption about why they chose a black muslim without any evidence racist in itself?just checked, yeh it is. I will be waiting for your evidence, thanks.

      • Teresa Davis McCormick

        oh you want evidence? I will give you evidence when you give me some that everyone who has been called a racist on the right deserved it. I don’t have to. Apparently since I’m a white, conservative female, I’m not allowed to call out racism when I see it? You must be a racist and a sexist.

  • lillymckim

    Fiasco called conservatives on the radio racists as well as saying he didn’t vote for Obama and “thats” when the “music” died for the Fiasco only when he mentioned Obama in a bad light…

  • $30423294

    I would love to get in the minds of the security personnel who did this.

    At any point did any of them feel they were doing something deeply wrong?

    Or were they “just following orders?”

    This is where our fight must be. The barbarians have stormed the gates. They have the levers of power. So we in the moral minority have to appeal to the conscience, one man at a time. Dare I say, as Martin Luther King did.

    You don’t have to live this way, democrats. You do not have to get swept up in this mania. It feels dirty because it IS dirty.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      I think they must have heavily debated it in their minds if they let him go on for 30 min.

    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      never heard of this guy before but plan to look him up. lol

      • lillymckim

        Wasalu Muhammad Jaco is his given name & hence the name change to “Fiasco”

      • itzyaboi95

        His music is good.

        • Teresa Davis McCormick

          yes I looked him up on you tube and really liked some of his songs.

      • qualityrkc

        He is a muslim. Don’t you peop0le hate muslims?

        • Teresa Davis McCormick

          “you people”?? didn’t you get a racist code word book? And by the way I did look him up and he seems to be a very intelligent man. Although I may not agree with all his views, some of his songs have a very good message. I like some rap music and don’t care for the beat but his words aren’t bad. LOL btw, while you are accusing me of hating all Muslims, you fail to realize that the organizers were so racist that they saw a black Muslim and automatically assumed he was in Obama’s corner. Have you tweeted them yet and asked them why they are racist? Prob not.

          • qualityrkc

            Conspiracy theorist. Provide evidence they picked him bc he was a black muslim. Btw how would they know he is a black muslim if they didn’t research him prior? Deeeerrrr. I accused you of hating muslims bc of what the repub party says. You accused them of picking lupe bc of racist assumptions you have made not bc of any tangeable evidence. Racist ass repubs never learn which is why you will continue to lose. You people have the deductive and comparitive analysis abilities of insects. Absolutely incapable of making a logically coherent statement without being completely hypocritical.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            So you have assumed that I’m a conspiracy theorist, a Republican, a Racists, anti Muslim and a hypocritical dumb person. All this because I think the organizers probably based their decision on race and not on research. LOL I think our comments show who is the logical one here.

          • qualityrkc

            Claiming the organizers picked him based on race and religion without any evidence is a conspiracy theory. Do you know what a conspiracy theory is?

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            why don’t you have your name on there? you can get on here and insult people from your computer but you don’t have the nuts to add your name. and since you don’t know and had to ask.
            conspiracy theory.
            A belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for an unexplained event.
            the invitation was an unexplained event?

          • qualityrkc

            Hahaha The unexplained event is why he was invited to the party brainiac. It is unexplainedx bc you can’t provide evidence proving he was invited bc he is a black muslim. This is why I told you to go back to school.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            you can’t provide evidence that he wasn’t. Do you know what speculation is? I suspect you are a whiny, no penis jerk. prove me wrong

          • qualityrkc

            Another braindead hockeymom throwing in her 2 cents…the burden of evidence always falls on the one making the claim. Your claim: lupe was invited bc the organizers saw he was a black muslim and assumed he favored obama. My claim: that your theory is a racist conspiracy theory bc you ascribe your own pre-conceived notions of race relations to the organizers without providing any evidence that was actually their thought process. So again, who is speculating here?go back to school

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            i love how you accuse me of pre conceived notions. Keep thinking that way. I could care less. obviously my skin is thicker than yours and Obama’s.

          • qualityrkc

            I called you a repub bc below you slam “left wing racism” and describe yourself as a conservative. Called you a racist bc you made accusations based on your own pre-conceived racist ideas without having evidence. The powers of deduction can be useful when you require the use of evidence to formulate coherent thoughts. Maybe its time to go back to school billy bob.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            so calling people out on their racist actions is racist? wow…that’s a totally new way for people to think about it?? not. when i say i saw racism it’s me being racist but when you do you’re so right? And I should go back to school? Is that were you were indoctrinated into that way of thinking? Maybe you should get more life experience and do some research on your own and stop trying to pigeon hole people. I don’t fit into your cookie cutter image you obviously have in your mind. Welcome some diversity in your life or shut the f up.

          • qualityrkc

            “That’s a totally new way for people to think about it. Not.” Lol paris hilton is that you?

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            boy you are really blowing up my disques. I must have really hit a nerve with you. How cute. Oh by the way billy bob? lol that’s a first for me. I told my kids that I got called billy bob by some ass on twitchy and they can’t stop laughing.

          • qualityrkc

            If you look at the board you will see you are the one responding to my comments initially. I am simply responding. Glad to please your future inmates.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            actually that’s not true, You started on me just after I commented that I’d never heard of Fiasco.

    • qualityrkc

      Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences pal. At a private event they can do whatever they want. Its not like Lupe is going to jail. They just threw him off their stage.

      • $30423294

        You are comparing their behavior to the lowest possible standard, i.e., civil law.

        I am comparing their behavior to the highest standard, i.e., moral law.

        I’m simply saying there is a better way to live. A more dignified way.

        • qualityrkc

          Civil law is not the lowest possible standard. A persons individual moral code may be superior to that of civil law but still civil law is hardly the lowest possible standard. There is no such thing as moral law in America. “Do unto other as you would have them do unto you” could be considered a great moral principle that is sometimes represented in our laws but by no means is it a law in itself. Where is this set of moral laws you are talking about? Who dictated them and who is charged with upholding them?

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            LOL Where do you think our laws came from? Go look it up, I’ll be happy to see what you come up with.

          • qualityrkc

            Where did our laws come from? Lol our system of governance? Or literally our laws? Our laws come from government who write, pass, and uphold them (atleast some of them). Didn’t have to look that up btw

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            yes and the laws that were written were based on the laws of morality.

          • qualityrkc

            I feel like we are going around in circles here lol. Please inform me where these laws of morality are written. You do know morality is a subjective term right? regardless I would love to read them.

          • qualityrkc

            I feel like we are going around in circles here lol. Please inform me where these laws of morality are written. You do know morality is a subjective term right? regardless I would love to read them.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            why should i tell someone something that they can clearly research on their own. Go somewhere else for a handout.

          • qualityrkc

            Only a republican would describe the free exchange of information as a “hand out”. This is what gives conservatives a bad name. Anti intellectualism is not something to be proud of.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            i suspect that you, like the rest of us, are aware there are books in a library and materials on-line you can check out. You’ve not offered any “free exchange of Information” yourself and this is not the library so……

    I don’t know this person’s work, but I think I need to ask the obvious question. When they invited him, did it not occur for even a brief moment that his last name might be a harbinger of things to come?

    Similarly, I doubt that Calamity Jane was invited to many social events.

        He said the whole damn thing is a racist system. Has nothing to do with left/right. If you know the song you know he hates all government and control. Has nothing to do with “wings” Good way to try and divide and conquer man.

      that is probably the real reason they threw his arse out; his comment about O. was more directed toward how much Barry should hate the right than it was about insulting the vacationer.

  • http://twitter.com/lazypadawan lazypadawan

    Lupe Fiasco is a radical. He’d told Bill O’Reilly a year or so ago that he didn’t like Obama. What were those organizers expecting? You might as well have booked Hank Williams Jr. and Ted Nugent too.

  • vino veritas

    The guy is probably just an opportunist. Creating controversy in his industry is a sure fire way to get your music out there and gain fame, which is the only real way to sell and become filthy stinking rich like all the rest do (while hypocritically bashing the very capitalist principals which allow them to do so, of course). What better way to do that than by being a renegade and bucking 99% of the pro-obama hypocrite tools who own his industry and who routinely lavish their Pavlovian drool and mindless praise on him whenever they can? Regardless of whether he actually means what he says & writes (and if he does then that just means he’s pissed that his potential savior & god isn’t as bat brained crazy as he is) the guy is still making more money and creating more fame for himself because of his critical stance regarding obama. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this kind of thing become a trend in fiasco’s industry now that this 2nd term of misery has begun. Money is more important to these degenerates than anything else.

      yes because free thought should be stomped out at every opportunity. They invited him remember?? You invite me into your house and we get into a fight then you can’t later accuse me of breaking and entering.
