As we pointed out earlier, Fox was singing a much different tune about Common approximately half-a-year ago. Reporter Jason Robinson interviewed the "rap legend" for an October 2010 report for FoxNews.com and told him, "your music is very positive. And you're known as the conscious rapper. How important is that to you, and how important do you think that is to our kids?"
Common responded that it's a "significant role" and that he's "happy to be known as the conscious rapper."
Furthermore, if Fox personalities are so upset about what musicians are saying, when will they call out Ted Nugent, a rock musician and conservative activist with a long history of inflammatory rhetoric? Sean Hannity has referred to Nugent as a "friend and frequent guest on the program." In addition to calling Obama a "piece of ****" and referring to Hillary Clinton as a "worthless bitch," Nugent claims to have told the president "to suck on" his machine gun and Clinton that she "might want to ride one of these into the sunset." He made both comments while holding (fake?) machine guns in both hands.
Despite Nugent's vitriol, Palin welcomed him on her podcast, writing in a tweet: "Ted Nugent will be on the SPAlaska.com podcast an hour before the TLC show airs to talk about hunting."
In addition, if Fox really wants to go down the road of criticizing musicians for select lyrics, there are plenty of other people to criticize. For instance, why has Palin praised musician Kid Rock instead of condemning him?
In her book Going Rogue, Palin expressed her gratitude for the endorsement of Kid Rock and praised him for being "very pro-America" and for having "common sense views." Yet Kid Rock has made a living off selling records with offensive lyrics. He also ignited a controversy with the NAACP after displaying a Confederate flag at a 2008 concert.
Why do you hate America, parados?
Could we all just imagine for a second what the unbiased press would be saying right now if Bush had invited a "poet" to the WH who said he didn't like interracial dating?
We all noticed you didn't reply to the point.
Is it kinda difficult to admit this President put his seal of approval on a racist?
.....He was five and she was six
They rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and she wore white
She would always win the fight
Bang bang she shot him down
Bang bang he hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang Vince Foster hit the ground.
Mansions, limos, seasons blurr,
Slick porked his girls and he porked her
Yet she would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play
Bang bang I shot you down
Bang bang you hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang Vince Foster hit the ground....
Power, money, intrigue and
the one day trips to Switzerland
Unlaundered money in a bag
So heavy that it made him sag
and then that final, fateful day,
he knew too much, and heard her say
I have no idea
what that means.
Poor little thang.
Is 3-4 words in a sentence all you can handle?
Public school product, no doubt.
