Rapper Lupe Fiasco Says President Obama is a Terrorist
The Chicago-based rapper Lupe Fiasco is in hot water after saying that President Barack Obama is a terrorist and that U.S. government policies are responsible for the terrorism that occurs around the world. During an interview on CBS News, the rapper said the following:
“My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”
Fiasco also said that he doesn’t vote because the current political system doesn’t work. He argues that the United States government allows the Israelis to engage in unspeakable abuses against the Palestinians, and he also criticizes the White House’s silence on this and other forms of oppression that occur both at home and abroad.
