Skip to comments.NJ State Police "Outraged" Over Rapper Invited to White House (Praised Fugitive Cop Killer)
Posted on 05/10/2011 6:30:04 PM PDT by kristinn
The invitation of rapper Common to a White House this week is drawing the ire of the union representing New Jersey state police.
While not even casual hip-hop fans would characterize him as a controversial rapper, Common found himself under the microscope after First Lady Michelle Obama invited him to the White House for an arts event. FOX News and Sarah Palin criticized the decision after the Daily Caller published some of Common's lyrics, including some that criticize President George W. Bush.
For Jersey police, the outrage centers on a song by Common about Assata Shakur, formerly known as Joanne Chesimard, who was convicted for the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike. Garden State police take offense at "A Song for Assata," which includes the lines "Your power and pride is beautiful. May God bless your soul."
For David Jones, president of the State Troopers Fraternal Association union, the White House invitation to a rapper who seems to celebrate Shakur is disturbing.
"The young people who read this stuff, hear this stuff, are getting a very dangerous and deadly message," Jones said.

No surprise - the rapper and the Obamas are cut from the same cloth.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Hey..what happened to more civil discourse???
A call to burn the man... just a little constructive criticism.
These people are incapable of telling the truth about anything.
“The young people who read this stuff, hear this stuff, are getting a very dangerous and deadly message,” Jones said.
Poor little Sachsa. Poor little Malia.
Or maybe FUBO and FUMO will put the kids to bed before the racist rapper with f-bombs and n-words “entertains” the Obamas with tales of burning presidents and killing cops.
“Toke Obama” would probably get a visit from the SS.
After watching the deplorable behavior of the cops during the Minnisota collective bargaining debable, I'm guessing the answer to your question depends heavily on whether they're unionized or not.
This was a topic on Hannity tonight. I only caught part of it but there were two black men - one defending the invite and one against it. The Obamas are racists but we already knew that.
zer0 ,the rapper, most all marxist, liberal, socialist, democrats would burn all of us.
Forget the minority vote, they already know what to do
They all want their pensions
Assata Shakur is the step-aunt of Tupac Shakur.
Sean Hannity just played a clip of Common rapping a “vote for Obama” ditty at Trinity United Church in 2007. The ditty included a line about Obama being a church member.
“Reverend” Wright was dancing behind him.
Are you kidding? Barry bassturd wants his daughters to have the full effect of ‘his people’s culture’ so they will be kept up as late as necessary to absorb some of this ‘real magic negro’ spittle.
Most Liberal, Marxist, Socialist, Democrats and zer0 would burn us all if, they could get away with it,
But who’s taxes would the government collect if that happened?
Not the bum’s I know, Their collecting, unemployment, union bennies,food stamps,and Govt give aways that I did not know existed, Like signing up for school, and picking up a cool 2k with no strings attached. (NY) and there is more like no cost walk in the Hospital health care.
Makes you wonder,why work?
Makes you wonder, why they can’t suspend this BS and balance the budge
It is the trash infesting the White House who invited this vile clown. Don’t blame him, blame the host. Besides Obama’s girls attended Rev Wright’s church their whole lives! Eeek.
I'm wondering every day. So few of us left working for private businesses, and even fewer paying federal taxes, I'm not sure what the point is. Any money saved will just be redistributed or worthless by the time it came for us to use it anyway.
When asked for comment, Obama said, “The police are acting stupidly.”
You are right, the Obamas are cut from exactly the same cloth as Black racist “Common”!!! They hate White people, they hate Women, they hate Italians, they hate Police, they hate GW Bush, they hate America. The “brother” Common loves The Obamas, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louie Farrakhan, Van Jones, etc., all sworn America haters. How’s that for “Hope & Change”, Americans???
I seriously doubt that a majority of them vote democrat. I have known and worked with a decent number of NJ State Troopers over the years and quite a few of them had political views that would make many Freepers seem like left wing pantywaists. Comparing NJ State Troopers to local cops or other State Police doesn’t work. They are a breed all their own. Even though they have compromised some of the training it is still very very tough to become a NJ State Trooper. A good friend of mine who went through both Marine Boot Camp and NJ State Trooper training said his time on Parris Island was much easier both physically and mentally.
the hypocrisy is so beyond the “masses”.
bread and circuses...the Plantation lives on.
Their boot camp at Sea Girt is hard. My father knew a few when he was an EMT instructor. Including two who were killed by the radicals (the one killed by Chesimard, and another by a member of the Weather Underground). The comparison with the Marine Corps is a good one - the same squared away ethic.
NAPO endorsed Obama for president in 2008 and Democrats John F. Kerry in 2004 and Al Gore in 2000.

Washington, DC - The Justice Department announced today that it has opened a civil pattern or practice investigation into the Newark, N.J., Police Department (NPD) involving allegations of use of excessive force, discriminatory policing, whether detainees confined to holding cells are subjected to unreasonable risk of harm and whether officers retaliate against citizens who legally attempt to observe or record police activity.
The investigation is in accordance with the pattern or practice provision of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, the anti-discrimination provisions of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
No surprise - the rapper and the Obamas are cut from the same cloth.
Yep, both ghetto trash.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
people should be outraged
Black CLASSLESS THUGS inhabit the White House and they invite black classless thugs into it.....they know no other kind.
Yep. This admin is nothing more than a bunch of arrogant snot nosed punks thumbing their nose at everything...they do it for the rise and they selfishly enjoy it.
It's only white people that he talks about burning & killing. Therefore nothing to see here, just move along...only entertaining lyrics for the entire commie pig 0dumbo family. Geez, I hate this entire 0dumb0 family more than ever. May they all roast for eternity in Hell.
From the article:
"Common, who is also a successful actor, is known as one of the most lyrically poetic rappers."
I guess he really is Shakespeare. Like this sonnet:
"Them dick boys got a lock of cock in them!"
We have trash in the White House, inviting trash.
And here we have, the First "Lady" of the United States, 'Gettin her Freak On' for the cameras.
Moochhell knows as much about 'fine' arts as a pig knows about Sunday school. Speaking of pigs.
Michelle looks like any other linebacker on the field!
Where was this outrage when Common was hosting the 2010 National Christmas Tree Lighting?
I just think there are bigger things to worry about these days.
“The White House appearance comes during the same week that lawmen from across the nation, including Jones, make their annual trek to Washington to honor their fallen comrades at the National Law Enforcement Memorial.”
Not a coincidence. It`s a deliberate, planned kick in the face to police officers.
Interesting that no one gets upset when terrorist Bill Ayres visits the White House.....
Sad, the black trash they’re bringing to the White House.
I remember the days when it was a noble place.
This junk keeps everyone from the real issues like the economy, jobs, and a government that is spending us into oblivion.
No doubt Elton John had sex with his boyfriend in the Lincoln bedroom..great...unemployment is at 9%..our leaders and at least a third of the population is conplicitly destroying America.
Bye bye America im glad I knew before things went totally haywire.
Yeah, but those in NJ aren’t “single issue” voters...as long as he still pursues his, anti-Americanism, atheistic socialism, and anti-Christianity, they will vote for him. Stamping out morality takes a lot of work and NJ has shown time and again that it is superior at that task.
Obama is a Chicago thug. Makes sense he would hang out with gangsta rappers from the hood.
Obama has shown his anti-Americanism, again.
These are black RACIST thug scum from hell!!! Yes the Obama's are racist black thugs.
His Attorney General Mr. "My People" is a black racist who hates white people!
Zero attacked a white police officer and defended a black racist Professor.
He invites black racists like Common, Maya Angelou, Al Sharpton and every other ghetto thug he could dig up.
I've wondered where all the gang bangers from the west side of Chicago went when the ghetto was torn down. It turns out they moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Barack and Michelle Obama are RACIST
Too bad that isn't grounds for impeachment.
