U.S. Hip Hop Singer (Racist, Lewd, Violent Lyrics) Most Welcome In U.K. ("50 Cent")
Daily Mail, UK ^ | 8 May 2009 | AmericanInTokyo

Posted on 05/08/2009 4:14:41 AM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

A quick tour of the internet shows that the England has NO PROBLEM WITH ALLOWING U.S. RAP/HIP HOP PERFORMERS enter UK territory for concerts, business deals, etc. despite their filthy lyrics including extremely racist and sexist as well as lewd and violence-inciting comments.

Are they on "the list"?

These are not barred at the UK's borders, and yet U.S. conservative talk show hosts who do not swear or use such vulgarities, nor incite violence, are banned. What gives?

(From December 2008) US Hip Hop "star's" Rolls Royce in London, and stretch limousine with entourage of 15 (50 Cent):

50 Cent: Rap "star's" grand entrance at London's Heathrow Airport with thug/gansta guards. Immigration? No sweat!:

50 Cent locked out of Rolls in downtown London; American entourage skilled at breaking in with coat hanger:

And typical lyrics, such as from "Peep Show":

I'm really really gettin into your freak show You give me a little baby then I'ma want mo' O.D.B. said it, "I like it raw!" Exotic erotic we're movin on the floor Enough to make a nigga lose control I'm down to go wherever you wan' go You got a man, I keep it on the low I do my thing you know I gets my dough I got a few stacks me and you could blow We headed to the hotel after the show I know how to romance you be my private dancer

From Rolling Stone, 2003, about "50 Cent":

The Life of a Hunted Man ..."At twelve, he was a crack dealer. At twenty-three, he was nearly shot to death. Now, at twenty-six, he is a hip-hop ruler. And old rivals want him dead... It's well past 4 a.m., and 50 cent's six bodyguards are out in the hallway of the hotel, lazily leaning against the wall or completely asleep. 50 is inside his room, still pulsing with energy. Three hours ago, he finished the biggest show of his career yet, a sold-out date for a crowd of 15,000 at Long Island's Nassau Coliseum. When 50 left the venue, he was surrounded by a ring of bodyguards until he climbed into a bulletproof GMC Suburban. A convoy of nine trucks followed him three minutes down the road to this hotel. Now, as his crew prowls for groupies, 50 is keeping a roomful of friends in stitches, telling stories about his past with the same mix of he-didn't-just-say-that humor and gruesome detail that has made him the most exciting new MC and the coolest new villain in hip-hop since the emergence of Eminem. Tonight he'll hold court for three or four hours straight until it's time to leave for a tour date in Baltimore. There's a thin wife-beater covering his chiseled torso and a Yankees hat balanced at an angle atop the white do-rag on his head. His navy-blue bulletproof vest is there on the floor."

The UK Home Minister should be forced to give an explanation about her “selection criteria”.

I only posted the relatively "tame" lyrics this guy puts out.

I ran through it. A LOT of violence (potentially inciteful to violence) and vulgarity not to mention clearly racist terminology. I could not dare post them here on FR due to the rules. Everyone can imagine.

And yet he and his entourage, with criminal records, are allowed into the UK as most recently as December (and there are others). I think this fact should be an abject embarrassment to the British Government.

Some 50 cent lyrics:

You think you know me? (Officer Ricky)

Nigga, You don't know me! (Officer Ricky)

50... ayo! C-O!

I put a razor thru ya face
I put a nine on my waist
I cock the shotty just in case
I pump nothin but bass
I put a pint of blood in the whip
A pint of blood on the ground
Bullets, bullets get to ricochetin
bouncing all around
That body all case cold I got her white wit it
If they ask me I think niggas from basely did it
I'm a southside nigga, we take on all comers
The first shot pop, we get to warrin all summer
These niggaz ain't hard I get on em on some different sh*t
Different strap, different clip, I blow the door off your whip


I can't even post the rest. It gets nastier. I can't really understand the language or what he's trying to say other than he like to kill people.

“I think this fact should be an abject embarrassment to the British Government.”

I think these rappers are an embararssment to Americans too, but it’s a free country, at least for some.

Politicians, in the UK as well as America, don’t particulary mind speech about racism, abusing women or killing cops; notice the only speech they attack is when it’s about them. And the more truthful the criticism gets, the more they react to it. What they really want to regulate is political speech, which our courts once valued above all forms of speech.

This FR thread should be sent to an enterprising, honest (probably center-of-right) British journalist in London with one of the dailies or tabs. I will try to think of someone here on the quick. It is late in the day there, but maybe it would reach their deadline for tomorrow’s news in London. This could really prove to be an embarrassment. How can they justify Savage on the “halt” list, and let this kind of riff-raff in, who pose the very threat to the UK that they accuse Savage of representing. I dont even know of Savage having a rap sheet, but man, you ought to see that hip-hopper’s run-ins with the law in the USA.

At any rate, hundreds of people will see this FR thread before the day is out stateside. I thought it would add some interesting dimension to this controversy. Maybe FOX News morning crew will even run with it.

But it would be racist to ban 50 whatever. I would imagine riots would occur over banning this disgusting person.

• From the Rapper Million $$ Bill....

Kill the Rapper,Kill him dead
Shoot the scoundrel in the head

Crush his throat with his gold chain
Watch the video of his pain.

Hate the bastard, the illigit
Mouthing nonsensense, verbal shit

The story here that we must tell
Let the SOB rot in hell

The remaining dots to be connected:

a) was this current Home Minister the Home Minister when this hip hop fool was let into England late last year?

b) were her "rules" regarding "banned undesirables" in place at the the time?

Of course, this is just one case, I found other cases of UK visitors from the US and elsewhere whose language or behavior is much more worse than Savage's and they were not only allowed to come into the UK, they also performed as entertainers and made money.

Talk about hypocrasy and double standards. There is no way they can wiggle out of this one it seems.

OK, I got the goods on her:

(From the UK Home Office's own website): "In 2008, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith introduced new measures that favoured excluding people who have spread hatred. She said that coming to the UK is ‘a privilege’. ‘I refuse to extend that privilege to individuals who abuse our standards and values to undermine our way of life. Therefore, I will not hesitate to name and shame those who foster extremist views as I want them to know that they are not welcome here,’ she said. ‘The government opposes extremism in all its forms and I am determined to stop those who want to spread extremism, hatred and violent messages in our communities from coming to our country.’"

Problem: How do you PimP slap an american black man and get away with it?..

Answer: YOU DON'T.. thats why barry obama got elected president..
--------------------------------

Note: many/most american black men deserve to get slapped hard.. preferable by other blackmen.. But even a black man cannot publicly slap an american black man.. except with humor.. There is reason a majority(60% to 80%) of american black men will spend time in prison.. They are guilty of many more things than they get caught performing..

They havent anything to stand on now, do they? If Savage sues that lady, I hope he might use this in the case to show selective application of their “ban”, which stinks to high heaven and smells of collusion between the UK Home Office and our own DHS (I would wager, although I dont gamble, that it is how it started. It is obviously a retaliation for something Savage said; considering the timeline, it is probably punishment over his reaction to the DHS Napolitano report calling conservative and “terrorists”, Savage went totally ballistic-with good cause—over that. Consider that DHS’s “sister” organization in the UK whom they have good contact with is Home Office. It is not too difficult to connect the dots.

I could not help but notice that the filthy-mouthed brothers clearly bring money into the formerly Great Britain, whereas Michael Savage is a white man over the age of 50. Michael Savage is clearly an easy target for the Smith woman because it is popular to trash white men just about anywhere in the world. And trashing brothers will get you into trouble with the NAALCP and the greedy entrepreneurs in the country who like to count their money.

In case you ask NAALCP stands for the National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People, per Rush Limbaugh.

Your overview is right on target.

Check out this double standard:

'Che Guevara’s daughter, Aleida, will be in Britain next month for a hoopla titled Cuba50, which is billed as “the biggest European celebration in this 50th anniversary year.“ In London’s expansive Barbican Centre, Britain will throw the continent’s biggest party commemorating 50 years of Castro’s Stalinist regime, which jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s, murdered political prisoners at a higher rate than pre-war Hitler’s, and came closest of anyone to plunging the world into nuclear war.

Let's hope Michael Savage sues the pants off that Labour Party battle axe.

Napolitano will sooner or later legally slip up, and she too will be sued.
