This is absolutely bizarre to me.
Barack and Michelle Obama had a poetry night at the White House. Among the invited honorees was a rapper named “Common” who has actually celebrated two different CONVICTED cop murderers.
Again, not just ONE cop murderer, but TWO:
- Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, was convicted for the 1973 slaying of Trooper Werner Foerster. She escaped prison and fled to the communist nation Cuba, where “Common” actually went to visit her prior to his “A Song for Assata.”
- Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia Police Department Officer Daniel Faulkner.
Two murdered police officers. Two convicted cop killers. And the man who celebrated those cop killers was personally invited by the Obamas for a reading of his “poetry” in the White House.
The garbage excuses I have heard from Democrats are absolutely incredible. As genuinely depraved as I believe Democrats are, they never cease to surprise me with their moral depravity.
The latest defense was offered by Jon Stewart – and of course immediately picked up as a talking point by the left. I blocked someone as a lying vermin, and he posted back with – of course – Jon Stewart’s talking point. Said talking point is that if you exclude “Common” for celebrating cop killers, you must also discard any invite of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Bono.
What is interesting about this assortment of singers is that the above list consists of – in order from above - 1) a left wing radical; 2) a hard-core Democrat; and 3) a liberal.
Let’s take Bono – who apparently wrote a song called “Native Son” about an American Indian named Peltier who killed two FBI agents – first:
Bono fans fill Obama coffers
The presidential hopeful has found just what he’s looking for in U2 devotees as they swell his campaign reserves

One is charismatic, plays to packed stadiums and wants to change the world. The other is Bono. Now a group of U2 fans, struck by the parallels between Barack Obama and the Irish rock star, have become one of the U.S. Democratic presidential nominee’s most enthusiastic band of supporters.
U2 fans for Obama, a collection of 103 U2 devotees, has raised almost $18,000 (EU12,200) for the presidential hopeful’s campaign and organised more than 600 events to date.
The group, whose website and blog are linked to the presidential candidate’s official homepage, believe that “since Bono can’t run for U.S. president, Obama is the next best thing”. Their blog declares that members “see in Obama a progressive Christian who embodies the ideas and sentiments…so compelling in U2′s music.”
The politician is already an avowed fan of the band, recently telling Rolling Stone magazine that U2 is on his iPod playlist. Bono attended the Democratic convention in Denver last week where he heard two U2 tracks, “City of Blinding Lights” and “Beautiful Day,” bookend Obama’s acceptance speech early on Friday. “Beautiful Day” was also the musical backdrop a night earlier when Obama introduced Senator Joe Biden, his nominee for vice-president, to the Denver crowd.
Oh, yeah, that one sure puts us conservative Republicans to shame. He’s clearly one of our guys, right? I mean, we’re responsible for this guy, right?
Oh, that’s right: WRONG!!!
I’m not going to bother to see if Bono was ever invited to attend anything during the Bush presidency, but if he was, I’ll bet you it was because of his humanitarian efforts, rather than because of his songs.
Then there’s Bruce Springsteen. I don’t know what cop killer this turd eulogized, and I really don’t care. But here’s the skinny on him:
‘The Boss’ would hire Obama for the top job
CAMPAIGN ’08: RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE
Rock star Bruce Springsteen endorses the Illinois Democrat. Clinton wins over salsa artist Willie Colon.
April 17, 2008|Johanna Neuman and Noam N. Levey | Times Staff Writers
Bruce Springsteen, the poetic rocker whose lyrics have chronicled the hardships of working-class Americans in struggling factory towns, on Wednesday endorsed Barack Obama for president.
The support that the music star known as “the Boss” threw behind the Illinois senator was a highlight of a relatively quiet day on the campaign trail, as Obama and rival Hillary Rodham Clinton prepared for Wednesday night’s Democratic debate in Philadelphia.
Okay, that’s two scratched off the list of three.
How about Bob Dylan?
“Joan Baez spoke of Dylan’s liberal political bend in “No Direction Home.” He was not a conservative.”
As Bob Dylan sang, “I’m liberal but to a degree. I want everybody to be free. But if you think I’m going to let Barry Goldwater move in next door to me and marry my daughter you must think I’m crazy . . .”
And Goldwater, of course, was the Republican nominee who was destroyed by the famous/infamous 1964 ”Daisy” ad (you know, the ad by Vietnam warmonger Lyndon Johnson that implied Goldwater was a warmonger).
So Dylan was really just a garden variety liberal: he was the kind of hypocrite who was liberal, and therefore tolerant of everybody and everything but people he disagreed with like conservatives. Then the intolerant hater burst out of his chest like that creature from Alien.
So I can draw two conclusions from this: 1) if you sing songs celebrating cop murders, YOU ARE A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT. And 2) Democrats are so insane that they actually justify Obama inviting a rapper who celebrates two cop murderers by citing three other liberals who also seem to have celebrated cop killers.
Only a Democrat is morally sick and psychologically irrational enough to see the reason in this defense.
Allow me to also point out that this black president who made sure we all understood that “the Cambridge police acted stupidly” (conclusion determined after stating he didn’t know any of the actual facts) invited a black man who eulogized two Black Panthers who both murdered WHITE police officers.
Also allow me to point out that there is a direct link between Barack Obama and “Common”: both were members of Jeremiah Wright’s demonic racist and un-American church.
Here is Trooper Werner Foerster, who was MURDERED by Assata Shakur:
And here is Philadelphia Police Department Officer Daniel Faulkner, who was murdered by Mumia Abu-Jamar.
Take a good look at these two white men who were murdered by Black Panthers as they tried to do their duties maintaining the thin blue line between civilization and total anarchy and mayhem. And tell me how you would feel about a president inviting a singer who wrote songs celebrating the murders of two BLACK police officers by two convicted white Ku Klux Klansmen who were nobly fighting for “white justice,” or “white power,” or “the cause,” or however the hell you want to phrase it to make it like “Common’s” eulogies. Because THAT is EXACTLY what we have in the case of two Black Panthers murdering two white police officers.
Hey, how about if your next president invites a singer who soulfully and spiritually eulogizes James Earl Ray – the “so-called” but actually innocent man convicted of the murder of Martin Luther King??? Here’s an article from – you guessed it, Democratic Underground – saying James Earl Ray is innocent. Hey, why not celebrate him as some kind of hero?!?!?!
If you are a Democrat, and you are not personally ashamed of your Disgrace-in-Chief, you are simply a cockroach masquerading as a human being.
