Ghoulish gungrabber Russell Simmons has already been busted as a hypocrite, but it never hurts to remind people that he’s also a dolt. When a Twitter user pointed out to him that dictatorships arise in part when the public is unable to defend itself against government tyranny:

Simmons claimed that it’s in fact “cooperation’s” that are putting America on the fast track to fascism.

Er, corporations, that is.

Either way, Simmons is full of it. As is one of his sycophants:

Yeah. Darn that Citizens United! Meanwhile:

But that’s perfectly acceptable when Obama does it, right Russell?

And what does he have to say about this?

It’s true:

While Simmons was creepily distracted by a naked Rihanna, he failed to notice that Chicago has reached the 500-homicide milestone for 2012:

40-year-old Nathaniel Jackson was shot on the city’s West Side around 9 p.m Thursday. He was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. The victim’s family has confirmed his identity.

Chicago Police say Jackson was shot in the head while standing outside a convenience store at Augusta Boulevard and Lavergne Avenue in the Austin Neighborhood.

…2008 was the last time Chicago reached 500 homicides.

But hey — priorities!

Also, #JusticeforTrayvon!

Huh? Not sure that makes remotely any sense, but then, when does Simmons ever make sense? Not when he’s whining about the Second Amendment, and certainly not when he’s weighing in on the fiscal cliff:

Pretty funny coming from a guy who regularly exploits the poor.

Awww … he’s pushing #My2k. How cute!

Jared Leto must be beaming.

Russell ought to take this matter up with fellow dictator-hater Harry Reid. Harry doesn’t seem too bothered by the fiscal cliff. Maybe he could teach yoga-lover Russell a few more relaxation techniques.
