Chicago Rapper: Obama 'The Biggest Terrorist'

It must be racist or something.
We know of at least one Chicago rapper who won't be getting an invite to the White House anytime soon.

Lupe Fiasco called out President Barack Obama this week, calling his fellow Chicagoan "the biggest terrorist."

The comments came in an interview with CBS News Tuesday while discussing the political content of his music.

"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."
Doesn't he realizes it's Bush's fault? Meanwhile, while angry rappers lash out at Obama, even pasty white guys are chiming in.
And it's not the only shots the president has taken this week. Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty stopped through Chicago Tuesday and said Obama "needs to go to rehab" in reference to the economic recovery.
Elsewhere in the disorganized community that is Chicago we've got teen gangs running wild. But oh no, now some are concerned that Mayor Emanuel's promised crackdown on the former Obama supporters is racial profiling.
Many community leaders say situation makes society label black males guilty by association.

“Almost any black man basically who wears a white shirt and dark pants is going to be looked at suspiciously. And that’s very unfortunate,” said Phillip Jackson.

He runs The Black Star Project and spent this evening training new mentors.

They’re volunteers who will hit the street to try to reach teens who would participate in the attacks.

“If a bunch of strong, positive black men walked up to those same boys, they would start listening,” Jackson told the volunteers.
Hmm. Let's see. The president is running his nonstop campaign in Chicago, he still has a residence there and probably will be back living there in 19 months. Maybe he can have a chat with the youths.
