Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted late Sunday, “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.”

“So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama,” he continued, ”and eventually was told to move on to the next song…Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”

This isn’t the first time the rapper, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has been vocal about his dislike for the president.

During an interview with CBS in 2011, he called the president a terrorist. Lupe said, “My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America. . .

I don't understand why they would have allowed him to perform to begin with.

I’m guessing they made an assumption that he was on their side.

You would think a psychopath like this guy would be welcomed with open arms by the Obamunists.

I guess the useful idiot wasn’t useful enough.

I guess it’s safe to say that the concert was a total fiasco.

Two years ago, the NOI was saying the same thing about the President as the rapper. He didn’t get the new “smile and say yessah” memo from the NOI.

$10 says the rapper thinks Obama isn’t liberal ENOUGH. He’s no conservative, he is to the left of the ‘Bamster.

Poor fool. Doesn’t he realize that criticizing American wars and calling the president a terrorist is a tool that only can be used against Republicans?

Because racist democrats believe all blacks must support Obama.

Thanks Hoodat.
...after going on an anti-war, anti-Obama rant... Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted late Sunday, "...played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn't vote for Obama... and eventually was told to move on to the next song... Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go." ...the rapper, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has been vocal about his dislike for [Zero] ...called [Zero] a terrorist... said, "My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America..."
It must have been that good, solid, anti-US stance that got him booked to perform in the first place.

You know I hate rap but any black rapper that speaks out against the tyrant in chief may make me donate to their cause just the same...

Wouldn’t it be great if his own daughters turned against him realizing what an a-hole of epic proportions he is. I bet he spends far more time on the course than he does with his daughters and you can bet they are going to start figuring him out. More torture than the staunchest Republican politician could ever dish out...lol

It's only hip for Democrat rappers to call Republican presidents terrorists and urge they end "the war". It isn't hip to protest ClintonObama.
