An Obamanation: NJ Police PO’d Over Barack Obama White House Invite to Cop-Killer Promoting Rapper Common
Let’s see Obama justify this disgusting travesty … rapper Common, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr. How is a cop killing promoting rapper allowed in the White House?
The New Jersey State Police are up in arms and outraged that President Barack Obama would invite rapper Common to the White House. What’s the matter with inviting Common, a cop killing promoting rappers. C’mon man, yo, yo ain’t dis here what dis here prezident iz all about? Obama be a President that brings people together. Can America wake up from their delusion of what Obama was touted as being and just realize that this man could care less about bridging the divides in the US. Why should we not be surprised as the Gateway Pundit states, the chickens appear to have come home to roost … Common is a former Obama church member. I guess Barack never heard Common rap either.

While even casual hip-hop fans wouldn’t characterize him as a controversial rapper, Common found himself under the microscope after First Lady Michelle Obama invited him to the White House for an arts event. In question: the lyrics to “A Song for Assata,” about convicted cop-killer and former Black Panther Assata Shakur.
The White House said Wednesday it stood by the decision to invite Common. Press Secretary Jay Carney said the conservative backlash distorts what Common stands for, and added that the president appreciates Common’s work with children in Chicago.
How is this individual allowed in the People’s House on the tax payer’s dime?
How could anyone justify the actions of any singer who raps about praising the acts of a cop killer? Seriously, Obama was just at Ground Zero and praising the acts of the first responders, fireman, police and paramedics and now this. WAKE UP POLICE … are you understanding now that it was just a photo-op? The furor from the New Jersey police centers on “A Song for Assata” lyrics like “Your power and pride is beautiful. May God bless your soul.”
Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, was convicted for the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike. She escaped prison in 1979, and is living in asylum in Cuba.
“The young people who read this stuff, hear this stuff, are getting a very dangerous and deadly message,” David Jones, president of the State Troopers Fraternal Association union, said on Tuesday.
White House Press Secretary lied his way through the presser regarding Obama invitation of Common’s to the WH. Barack Obama is a supporter of police and is against violent and misogynous lyrics, yet he is willing to overlook it because he is just that kind of a swell guy. NICE. So its ok that the Great Barack Hussein Obama speaks out against violence and praises cops, but when it comes time for action and symbolism, Obama says screw you and invites a cop-killing promoting rapper to the White House.
To borrow a line from one of Obama’s past racial gaffes, me thinks Obama is acting stupidly. The Daily Caller has transcribed some of the lyrics of this Poet Lauriat. Certain things this President has done have been unforgivable … this one is right at the top of the list. Maybe the NJ police and police across America will remember this slap in the face in 2012 when they vote.
BTW America, how’s that “Hope & Change” working out for you?
What would happen if a white singer who made racist comments in their lyrics and praised individuals who killed blacks was invited to the WH by a white President? Think the MSM would be calling for impeachment?
