Rapper and Obama Supporting Pal Lil' Wayne Sports New Communist T-Shirt in Music Video
10-20-2009

Wish I could say that this is nothing in the grand scheme of things...but these t-shirts have become quite the hot item as of the last 3 weeks with them being sold all over the net and e-bay. I had no idea why a few local kids were wearing such trash the other day when my family was shopping at Wal-Mart so sure enough I looked more into the fashion trend.

It is none other than Obama supporter and rap star Lil' Wayne with Jay Sean who is wearing it in the #1 video in the country on BET, VH1, and Much Music in Canada.

This is just one link to the many e-bay sales for them.

If you haven't heard or simply forgot...Obama went out of his way to cite Lil' Wayne as one of his favorites last summer.

From Time magazine:

http://swampland.blogs.time.com/2008/07/08/the_politics_of_lil_wayne/

"You are probably not that good a rapper. Maybe you are the next Lil' Wayne, but probably not, in which case you need to stay in school," Obama, D-Ill., told a cheering crowd, brought to a standing ovation at a town hall meeting in Powder Springs, Georgia.

The presumptive Democratic nominee was speaking about high school drop out rates and the need for people to be committed to working hard in school so they can get a job after school.

Obama said he knows some young men think they can't find a job unless they are a really good basketball player.

"Which most of you brothas are not," Obama, who played basketball in high school, a sport he continues to play to this day, said jokingly. "I know you think you are, but you're not. You are over-rated in your own mind. You will not play in the NBA."

To quote Inigo Montoya, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Cool...take all of his stuff and leave him with a loaf of bread. Refuse? Now that's just gulag talk right there.

I don't think many kids are learning anything about communism anymore. It's been whitewashed. I've had to make sure I personally educate my kids regularly on the dangers and ruthlessness of communism.

The only good thing about Communists wearing red is that if things ever really get ugly, they’ll be much easier to sight in at 200 yards.

He came here for a town hall meeting but couldn't find the time when the whole town was underwater a few weeks ago.

Problem is...the useful idiot has tens of millions of kids in this country listening to him. Sells millions of records and is easily the biggest name in hip-hop...probably eclipsing Jay-Z. The entire propaganda machine is disturbing and frightening.

Hey, he can work for bread and a small cubicle in a glorious state-owned apartment block. He should really work for the good of all rather than for selfish reason like money for bling, right comrade?

I swear if this country ever becomes ‘Beyond Thunderdome’; it’s people like this and their political heroes that need to be pillaged immediately.

I have stickers that represent my paint business that I do on the side. Its high-end motorcycle paint. (I only do about one per month)

I would not want my stickers on a piece of crap motorcycle with a bad paintjob.

The same holds true here except I think its a good thing that these thugs show their support for Zer0. I love to see a gangster with a Zer0 shirt on or a jacked up pimp car with two gangster brothers inside and an Obama sticker on it.
My idiot coworker saw one of those on our lunch break one day and said “Oh my God, is that what I voted for??”

So true. Not downplaying the role, only the people who know not what the talk about.

Lil’Wayne is more than a supporter...he is one of Obama’s favorite artists and he regards him as one of the best hip hop artists of our time. But I appreciate what you are saying...believe me.

I’ve been in favor of calling them communists for a long time, no more “liberals” or “progressives”. It’s time to take the gloves off!

Amazing that he has become the “standard” that the President of the United States considers to be a musical and lyrical “genius”.

We are screwed.
