Skip to comments.White House calls rapper Common ’socially conscious,’ opposes cop killing lyrics (B.S Alert)
Posted on 05/11/2011 12:41:45 PM PDT by MissesBush
The White House is standing behind its decision to welcome rapper Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., AKA Common, to Washington, D.C. Wednesday night amidst controversy over the hip hop artists lyrics which include support for violence against cops and former President George W. Bush.
The president opposes those kinds of lyrics, said Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary.
Despite that opposition, Carney indicated that Common would still be welcome at An Evening of Poetry at the White House tonight.
Hes known as a socially conscious hip hop artist or rapper, who in fact, has done, a lot of good things, offered Carney. You can oppose some of what hes done and appreciate some of the other things hes done.

If the White House opposes cop killing lyrics, then they'd disinvite this cockroach from the People's House. You can't have it both ways. And by the way, what exactly has this low life done that we need to appreciate? Denigrating our culture? Furthering the culture of violence and hatred in minority communities? Coarsening our national discourse?
Hurts to ride that pointed picket fence, doesn’t it Obummer?
He fits inline with the squatters soiling the peoples house, NO CLASS AND COULD CARE LESS.
When this comes up in 2012 the kenyan will simply say “just because I was in the same room doesn’t mean I heard what he was saying.” (ala Wright etc)
“O” and Lynn are the same identical crud. So, “O” sees nothing wrong with the guy.
Time to get out the old BS Meter.
A socially conscious rapper? No such thing.
I keep thinking if this were G.W. and he had a racist entertainer at the Whitey House - the media, the RATS would be going bananas, Hell I remember when G. W. was going to speak at Bob Jones University - you would think the way the media reacted he was attending a KKK rally.
This whole thing with the media and racist RATS stinks to high heaven.
Roses are Red
Sunflowers are Yellow

Is one ‘Common’ Fellow.
So, what do you think my chances of being invited to An Evening of Poetry at the White House.
Sounds just like the people I know who voted for him.
I bet they would describe Rev Wright as “socially conscious” as well.
Such scum being allowed to run and ruin or country is unforgivable.
The Obamas make me want to puke.
Oh well, nothing else for them to do but pull the Democrat lever at the election polls. Because that's what union personnel do. Vote Democrat.
Obama embraces the hate, racism and violence perpetuated by the New Black Panthers, gangster rappers and Reverend Wright, secure in the knowledge that anyone who points that out will be branded a racist by the left and MSM.
If GWB had Lee Greenwood at the WH singing “God Bless the USA” the Democrat/Progressive/Socialist Party-media would be having a major fit.
One of the worst insults that my grandmother could hurl at someone was to say that they were, “common”. Methinks this rapper is aptly named.
If I decide to rob a bank tomorrow I’m using this defense. The bank robbing will not represent all of my work, most of which is socially conscious.
In the meanwhile he assembles his gang and their insprirational lyrics...
In the meanwhile he assembles his gang and their inspirational lyrics...
Sure is great to choose good things for the nation, huh...Obama!
Was this guy’s performance at the WH announced BEFORE Bush declined the invitation to accompany Obama to Ground Zero last week?
Sure. Like Osama Bin Laden. He did some good things, too. So why exactly did Obama target him?
only after, when asked about the lyrics, he responds, “i don’t know all the facts but the police acted stupidly”....
I just went and read several of his lyrics. Not one was without a dozen swear words, and I think every one was about sex outside marriage and glorified violence. My plan was to post some of it, but it’s just not possible. It’s hard for this old dog to understand the slang, I probably missed half the sex and violence references.
Any word that they will let their children listen to this ‘music’?
Heck, I could say the same thing about Adolf Hitler, Jeffrey Dahmer, and a host of other folks...
Thanks for the insight, and for upholding your standards, Mr. White House Spokesman...
If that gets out, he will most assuredly get uninvited.
If it’s so good - their children should be put front row and center...and perhaps a question and answer session would be in order...
Perhaps he could invite the former poet laureate of New Jersey, Amiri Baraka, to read his poem, “Somebody Blew Up America.” Do not overlook the good things this poet has done. He be teeching our youts good Inglish. Look at Detroit - the future of America.
He’s a friend of Obama’s. Went to Wright’s church with Obama. Was probably a big contributor. So of course he’s getting rewarded. I don’t care if he shows up at the White House, but it is what it is.
it bothers me that so few “Freepers”, relatively speaking, have spoken out on this travesty. This is the real Obamas surfacing. “Hate and disdain for America & most Americans, Women, Italians, Jews, Cops, GW Bush, etc.” Sad commentary about our once great country. And.....take my word for it, class warfare and hate for ethnics (this time Whites), any kind, eventually leads to slaughter and genocide of innocents. Leave Obama, Jones, Farrakhan, Wright to their whims and the trio from the thirties, Hitler, Mussolini & Stalin will be reigning supreme once more!!! Wake up America & Americans!!!
Cannot answer that question —
“Socially Conscious” = Radical Nutcase
And we all thought Slick Willie soiled the carpets in the White House...
And all the police unions are pissed at this, but not to worry they will circle the wagons in 2012 and will cast their vote for this turd.
Its just the language of illiterate, uneducated drug traders who have no respect for societal norms. Nothing like aspiring to a greater, better future.
Current peers to the first lady...er,,,,, first hoe that is.
