Guess Which Famous Singer Just Called Louis Farrakhan a ‘Super Hero’
The Blaze ^ | 4/18/13

Posted on 04/18/2013 8:08:25 AM PDT by Impala64ssa


Singer Erykah Badu took to her Twitter account early in the morning on Wednesday to share her very-candid views on the Minister Louis Farrakhan. Rather than taking aim at some of the divisive comments that the faith leader continues to utter, she labeled him a “Super Hero” and a “beautiful, brave being.”

“Louis Farakahn is a SuperHero. That’s A beautiful brave being,” she wrote (note: the minister’s name is “Farrakhan” not “Farakahn” as noted in her tweet; spelling and grammar kept in tact).

Clearly confounded by the message, Twitchy asked, “Since when are racism and anti-Semitism beautiful or brave?,” referring to the Nation of Islam leader’s seemingly contentious and fiery commentary about whites and Jews, among others.

In an effort to further highlight the curious nature of Badu’s pro-Farrakhan tweet, Twitchy also noted that, last year, the singer tweeted a message that the outlet believes the faith leader would patently reject.

In Aug. 2012, Badu tweeted, “‘Race’ should be taken off of EVERY form. We are all Americans.” To this, Twitchy responded, “Criticism of the race card is just the sort of thing that would send “superhero” Farrakhan into uncontrollable fits of rage.”

Later, following push-back on Twitter, Badu seemingly defended her praise of Farrakhan.

So, it seems Farrakhan has the support of a Grammy-Award winning singer, despite his intensely divisive and troubling language, which TheBlaze has extensively documented.

Badu is an excellent singer/songwriter. That doesn’t mean she knows what she’s talking about on political/social issue. I don’t hold the stupidity of artists/musicians/actors against them, I just ignore them.

Well, at least she's right about that, 100% right.

These music performing whores receive each others' self-congratulatory applause (offered by the rest of the Music Industry Whores) and mistake it for real approval from actual people. They hear the cheers of their fellow Bubble Dwelling Prostitutes, and take it to mean that their "work," opinions, and twisted moral belief structures have not only validity but also wide acceptance.

Having spent decades working in the music industry, the only other people in America who are as uselessly self-loving and delusionally self-important are the actors in Hollywood, the vast majority of which are hopelessly brain-dead über-liberal wastes of oxygen and real estate.

Pathetic jokes upon themselves that they are, they make the perfect Pied Pipers for the rest of the Liberal imbeciles, not to mention the perfect punch-lines for intelligent life forms. The only thing I like about most musicians and actors is punching them in the nuts. Hard.

If it’s not Classical, 80’s Rock, the group ‘Deadbolt’, ‘MutantSurfing.com” on my computer’s Internet Radio, or my TV’s Music Choice channel ‘Soundscapes’, “I don’t know you!”

I do not pay any entertainer to open their yap, other than to sing music! Once they do, IF I had any music of theirs, it’s gone. Goes back to somebody speaking, under a tent, about what happens when you put your money in something, that you become part of that thing.

A skank praising trash! Hardly news.

More mindless garbage from the music industry which it seems can rarely produce a good voice but sure can mask one with skin, flashing lights, loud percussion and the most vile of instruments a screaming electric guitar.

No wonder they are usually high on drugs or booze as that is the only way they could tolerate each other.

As to FairyCon, my only regret is when he dies his body will contaminate the earth with his islamic filth.

Should be called the 'poverty pimp card' - not the race card... Lots of good black people slimed by heavy-handed poverty pimp tactics....
