Lil Wayne: FLAG TRAMPLE WAS AN ACCIDENT I Didn't See It There
tmz ^ | 6/18 | tmz

Posted on 06/18/2013 7:41:20 AM PDT by RummyChick

Lil Wayne is lying through his diamond-encrusted teeth ... claiming he didn't INTENTIONALLY step on the American flag during a video shoot ... despite the fact he can be seen looking down on Old Glory several times during the performance.

Wayne just tweeted about his controversial video shoot for "God Bless Amerika" in New Orleans ... saying, "I didn't step on the flag on purpose! It's a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drop it's just there as I perform."

Translation -- I swear it was an accident ... please don't hate me.

Lil Wayne...

Liar 92% I believe him 8%

Total Votes: 24,788 *Poll Results Problem is ... during the video, you can see Wayne look down on the flag at several points in the shoot ... yet continues to trample all over the stars and stripes.

So ... you buyin' Weezy's explanation

Ha, he’s on a set which has been prepared for a video shoot and there just happens to be a flag laying on the ground where they are videoing him. Yeah, right.

The words to his “song” say otherwise.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it was an accident. He’s usually high as hell on weed and sizzurp(aka purple or drank).

My previously unintentional boycott of Lil’ Wayne is now officially intentional.

Holder’s people don’t consider themselves Americans, so they weren’t offended in the least. Note all the churdren (remember Joycelyn Elders?) watching and learning how to be un-American.

I really wish I would have looked at that picture before my first post. That is blatant. He’s walking straight down a laid out flag.

I guess “Weezie” can do no wrong to some people.

lyrics
uh, my mind’s filled with mine fields
The ashes fall, the wine spills
The world stops, drops and rolls
It’s Judgment Day or a fire drill
Yea, I pour out my heart, have a drink
They say the drunk never lie, they ain’t never lyin yea
My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of kill em all and let em die

[Hook]
God bless Amerika
This ole’ godless Amerika
I heard tomorrow ain’t promised today
The end of time is like a hour away

[Verse 2]
Damn, military minded, lost and can’t find it
The stars on the flag are never shining
Uh, I saw a butterfly in hell today
Will I die or go to jail today?
Cause I live by the sword and die by the sword
Heard police was looking for me, I’mma hide by abroad
Shootin stars in my pocket, bitch sit on my rocket
I’m wired off a socket, but still shocking
Everybody wanna tell me what I need
You can play a role in my life but not the lead
If there’s food for thought then I’m guilty of greed
Mama said take what you want – I took heed yea
Now let it breathe, yea, back to life, back to reality
Been eating my girl and she’s so sweet, got cavities
Granted we do it for vanity not humanity
But what’s appealing to me is under banana trees, love
I go so hard, I tried to pay homage but I was overcharged
Ain’t that a bitch? I’m just a nut tryna bust a nut in the nut shell
Used to say fuck the police, now I say fuck jail
Same shit, different air freshner
I don’t play boy, I ain’t Hugh Hefner
Tryna be a step ahead, but a few feet behind
Two fingers to my head, pop! Peace of mind
I be in the cloud, cloud number 9
And I just fucked the clock and let it come to time
It’s a cold world, I put on a mink
There’s a chain of commands, I’m the missing link

[Hook]
God bless Amerika
This ole’ godless Amerika
I heard tomorrow ain’t promised today
And I’m smoking on them flowers, catch the bouquet

[Outro]
Here we live by the sword and die by the sword
The police are looking for me, I’mma hide by abroad
Shootin stars in my pocket, bitch sit on my rocket
I’m wired off a socket, but still shockin em
Everybody wanna tell me what I need
You can play a role in my life but not the lead
I saw a butterfly in hell today
Will I die or go to jail today ?

You can clearly see in the video the guys on the ladders purposely made the flag fall, this was all staged to happen.

Its becoming clearer day by day, that America is in a struggle to the death between us and them.

Don’t know a single cracka that holds their pistol sideways, guess who’s gonna win.

“A boycott here would be perfectly appropriate,” Ziegler said. “But unlikely to be effective because his fan base will not see any negative coverage of this act from the news sources they are likely to consume.”

An expected answer coming from someone who’d have to run a Hoover for a year to suck up one small IQ point.

At least he (it?) is a good example of how little talent there is in “music” these days.

Ll’l Wayne was feelin a bit under the weather, and noticed to his horror that, from the neck up, his skin was fading to a ghostly pallor.

Panicked, he rushed to the doctor, who prescribed that he immediately drink a large beaker full of a noisome, brownish liquid.

Upon doing so, Li’l Wayne sputtered and spewed, screaming, “THIS TASTES LIKE BULLSH*T!!!”

“It IS,” said the doctor. “You were about a quart low.”

I don’t care what “entertainers” do. While the flag is an important symbol, I care about the Central Party and the US Government alphabet agencies that are destroying the values underlying the flag.

Li’l Wayne can do what he wishes. It isn’t he that is circumventing my Constitutional Rights. Nor does that happen if he steps on a flag.

It happens by government employees, by Congress, by the Adminstration - EVERY DAY.

The flag was tied to a sandbag. The only reason to do that on a set is to pull it down rapidly and make sure it doesn’t just fall over on the “actor”. This was absolutely intentional to be a reveal of the crowd behind him.

Send this anti-American Obamabot back to Africa where he can find nice sticks and dirt to eat while he dodges lions and leopards and pit vipers trying to kill his useless ass. These disrespectful, ungrateful filth have no idea how good they have it here.

A little perspective would do these lazy sphincters a world of good, if only they possessed the mental capacity to objectively weigh the differences and come to an intelligently informed conclusion.

Li'l Wan is just another pepper-scented tool in the Progressive's "Destroy America" arsenal of brain-dead propagandists. That smell happens when you just keep dousing yourself with cologne instead of taking a shower. If Obama had a son, he'd smell just like Li'l Wan.

Now, where did I put that remote...?

What a pile of ignorant anthropoid babble. These imbeciles really are numb from the neck up. That this garbage is considered "music" is just more tragic confirmation of the decline of our once-great society.

The God-less imbeciles have taken over. Heaven help us.

The real problem is no one had the brass to stand up to the little pimp and tell him to GTFO the flag or else.

Why would they do that? They probably agree with him.

Maybe the real problem is that Lilly Wayne doesn’t know what the U.S. Flag looks like. Apparently, neither do any of the crowd around him. Nor the crew who released it from top of the ladder. Nor the guy taking the video.

Well... it didn't just happen to lay down so smoothly and flat like a carpet pathway. The 'crew' practiced it several times before they found a way to get it to land ...jes rite. Lil Wayne's producer had to do several takes. The crowd is watching , and gathered round just like any public place where someone sets up to FILM a MUSIC VIDEO. This video footage is not one of the many takes from Wayne's crew, but from someone's phonecam, so you are seeing ONE out of several times that he walked on the flag.
