As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

The Obamas Invite Cop Hating Rapper to the White House

What do you think of when you imagine a White House “Celebration of American Poetry and Prose?” A quiet collection of serious minded women and professorial looking men reciting, in tones both dramatic and hushed, carefully crafted cadenzas in a setting of earnest reflection?

Think again. Think of THIS:

Yo, yo, yo, lissen up. This is not your father’s candy ass poetry reading, you hear?

Mrs. Obama, who is supposedly so concerned about the future of our nation’s impressionable and overweight youth, has invited this spigot of hatred, a rapper who calls himself “Common,” to the White House Wednesday to share his vitriol.

It’s one thing to be angry about your circumstances and to express it. It’s quite another to threaten harm against the police.

Instead of inviting this person to the White House, Obama should probably be trying to find out if “Common” is serious about his own lyrics. He’s not a poet. He’s a security threat.

How fraudulent of Obama to head to Ground Zero last week and have his picture taken with police who responded to the 9/11 disaster, and then give the presidential seal of approval to someone who wrote this:

Tell the law, my Uzi weighs a ton

I walk like a warrior,

from them I won’t run . . .

Use your mind and nine-power, get the government touch

Them boys chat-chat on how him pop gun

I got the black strap to make the cops run

They watching me, I’m watching them

The man seems to wish violence against George W. Bush as well:

With that happening, why they messing with Saddam?

Burn a Bush cos’ for peace he no push no button

Killing over oil and grease

no weapons of destruction

How can we follow a leader when this a corrupt one

Tomorrow night, “Common” will be standing in the East Room, below the life size paintings of George and Martha Washington, spewing this kind of stuff.

It’s not just an outrage. It’s incomprehensible.

How could this be?

Well, turns out Common is from Chicago. Not just from Chicago, but a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ since childhood. Does that church name ring a bell? The pastor there is Jeremiah Wright.

I wonder where Common learned his songs of hatred? It appears the Obamas have not completely cut their ties to the church.

I’ve looked at some of Common’s other lyrics. Some of it is an honest attempt to grapple with the life in the city. And much of it is poorly constructed, plenty of it is profane, and as we see above, some of it promotes violence against law enforcement and Obama’s predecessor as president.

Whatever the artistry that may be involved here, this is not a man whose “ouvre” merits to a visit to the White House. It’s an insult to the nation.

I assume Common has been instructed not to recite his anti-cop rant. If he does, Obama will incur the political damage he richly deserves.

  1. I’m not surprised by the O’s inviting this violence promoting racist to speak at the WhiteHouse. He’s not the first and he won’t be the last profane Black artist that they embrace and promote.

  2. I can guarantee you it won’t be on the three networks or most of the cables.
    If people complain I would suspect there will be no response, most likely, or maybe they’ll play the race card.

    What if Common does a rap on Libya…the killing of Gaddafi’s grandchildren, blood for oil or maybe about shooting of the unarmed Bin Laden in the eye?

    The Obamas can act with impunity because they are never held accountable. Just yesterday MO wore a very expensve, chi chi, French top from Jean Paul Gaultier to exercise in, but you’ll never hear about that.

  3. THATS RACIST!!!

    BTW; is Obama truly “American Black”? = White hippie mother + Black college failure Kenyan father?
    LOL! If they were my parents I would have to fill out a dozen+ pages to my SF-86 “security clearance form” and Yet? Obama never had to go thru a SF-86 as a ‘college student’, ‘law proffesor’, ‘Illinois politican’ OR ‘US Senator’…

  4. These two are so deep in hypocrisy and double standards that it has all our heads spinning.

    A Daily Caller article on this subject reported that back in 2003, Laura Bush invited some poets to reprise the works of Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes and Walt Whitman. She had to cancel the event after some loony leftists protested and threatened to crash the party. Maybe the Tea Party should protest this guy visiting our White House. Nah, they would probably wind up in the pokey if they tried.

  5. Using the same skills in the video above
    I composed this poem from the comment – dove.

    Full-on charming,
    But this is not alarming.

    O’s inviting a racist to speak,
    in the WhiteHouse this week.

    He’s not the first, nor the last
    profane Black artist to give a blast.

    They embrace and promote,
    but a word won’t be rote.

    By the three networks and cable,
    People complain, but they not able.

    To get a response will be hard,
    The networks be play-in the race card.

    If Common were to rap on Libya,
    We’d all be cheering to hear-i-ya?

    Kill-in Gaddafi’s grand-chill-in,
    blood for oil makes you a villain.

    Shooting Bin Laden in the eye,
    Obama will say “Boo-ya!”

    They act with impunity, no accountability,
    Just yesterday MO wore chi chi.

    French top by Jean Paul Gaultier,
    for her exercise, but you’ll never hear.

    The culture wars have begun!
    THATS RACIST – son.

    Is Obama truly “American Black”?
    White mother and father who’s black.

    LOL! If they were my parents I’d stick
    a dozen+ pages to my SF-86.

    Obama’s never been thru a SF-86,
    student, professor, Sentor, makes me sick.

    These two are so deep in hypocrisy
    the double standards are a felicity.

    This isn’t tone-deafness either,
    He and Michelle are not believers.

    Keeping it real. Peace

  6. yo yo yo, listen up!
    the cops have something for your strap
    the cops will put you on your back
    time for you to take a nap
    hate-mongering rapper; take the dirt nap

    And, the American Public will send Mr. and Mrs. Obama back to chicago; back to private life; back to reverend wright;

    yo yo yo, problem solved; back to Chicago and the hate-mongering crowd in the church where God does not live and is not known.

    yo yo yo, obamas go home and get out of the People’s House

  7. It was the president that said “the police acted stupidly” in the Professor Gates Cambridge Massachsetts situation… right?!!?

    So why should a foul mouth rapper who hates police bother Obama?

  8. Leave it to Comrade Obozo to dumb down America’s youth with this kind of GARBAGE! Counting the days until he is OUT OF OFFICE, January 20, 2013! Good riddance!

  9. When I click “like”, let it be known that I appreciate the article, not the stupid idea of inviting this thug to the house of the people. Some nerve, however not surprising.

  10. Birds of a feather flock together. Common for the Commoners. Just because BOgus and his double wide bride inhabit the White House does not mean that they have any class or common sense whatsoever. The invitation to this illiterate idiot to “perform” at the “people’s house” just proves the point. We must make absolutely sure that we fumigate the place when BO is dismissed in 2012.

  11. Obama was raised by a white mother and white grand parents. I don’t see how the man can hate white people.
    People need to calm down…It’s poetry. When I was college I wrote all kinds of poems about love, fear, hate and my concerns with society. Are people really going to hold people’s poems as their life long beliefs.
    If thats the case, I should have been kicked out of elementry school for confessng my love to my teacher.. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, your the best 2nd grade math teacher, and for that I love you. ;)

    • At first I thought you were joking. But after re-reading this, I believe you really are trying to suggest an equivilancy between your not-to-be-taken-seriously attempts at poety when you were 7 years old, and the “art” produced by this miscreant who goes by the name “Common”. I might buy your argument if he were, say 12 or 13 years old. Maybe, even using your other arguement…college age. But this idiot is 39 years old, and I think at that age it is fair to conclude that these ARE representative of his life long beliefs. Afterall, this man is old enough to hold the office (God forbid) of the very man who has invited or at least allows him to spew this nonsense in the White House.

  12. Even if he did the songs, it would not be reported. Main stream media is to busy kissing their… Why start reporting what really goes on now they haven’t for the last two and half years.

  13. 1) Michele isn’t in college
    2) They are supposed to represent all Americans, not underclass black cop murderers
    3) You say “It’s poetry” as though that is something trivial – if it’s trivial, why are we doing it in the WH? If it isn’t trivial, why are they spewing hatred at a WH function?
    You have yet to mature enough to recognize intellectual trash ..

  14. Surprised? NO! Bet they already had Rev. Wright over to preach too.
    Bill Ayers was on the visitors’ log for the WH several times the first few months. The “Libtard Media” will give this rap “artiste” a pass just like they do every other “friend of the Obamas”…”If you want to know Who I AM…just look at Who I surround myself with!”….Barry Obama.

  15. It’s not just about “poetry” or “art” …. Common is a big supporter of Assata Shakur, a Black Panther (woman) who was convicted of murdering a New Jersey state trooper. She escaped & is now living in Cuba – she’s on the FBI’s most wanted list.

    This article includes Common rapping in Jeremiah Wright’s “church” in Jan. ’08:
    http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/jjmnolte/2011/05/10/obama-white-house-invites-racist-misogynist-pro-cop-killer-rapper-to-evening-of-poetry/

    Notice how he calls for Obama for Pres? A blatant violation of the church’s non-profit status – but of course who cares.

    Common is such a fan of this cop killer that he named his own daughter after her.

    And read what Common said about white girls in the Big Hollywood article – the short version is that they’re good for screwing (which he’d done) but not marrying & not dating.

    • A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika
      Nothing proper about your propaganda
      Fools follow the rules when the set commands you
      I give a shout out to the living dead
      Who stood and watched at the feds cold centralized
      So serene on the screen
      You was mesmerized
      Cellular phones sounding a death tone
      No escape from the mass mind rape
      Play it again jack and then rewind the tape
      Play it again and again and again
      Until your mind is locked in
      Believing all the lies that they are telling you
      Buying all the products that they’re selling you
      They say jump
      You say how high
      Corporations cold
      Turn you to stone before you realize

  16. Assata was a Black Panther during times of intense racism when black people were being murdered by racist white cops. How easy is it for racist cops to lie and say she shot someone when she actually didn’t? Do you people forget about what it was like for black people during this time when they were still being treated as slaves? I am a white person but I am not ignorant to HISTORICAL evidence! NOT ALL cops are GOOD people, get that in your head. A LOT of them are corrupted, RACIST sociopathic scum bags who murder innocent people!
