I like to share stories like this when I come across them for two reasons: 1) They’re hilarious. A rapper calling out a president… on Twitter… threatening to “go Kanye”. You really can’t make that sort of thing up. 2) They illustrate how absolutely ridiculous and hypocritical the main stream media is in their treatment/ coverage of this president or Democrat politicians, generally. The guy’s more or less accusing the president of turning a blind eye to what he refers to as genocide in his native Chicago and CBS Local’s the only main stream outlet running the story?
Former Diddy protégé Shyne has gone on a Twitter tear against the president. The Belize-born rapper has been calling out President Barack Obama for not doing more to curb the murder rate in the president’s hometown of Chicago.
“If @barackobama doesn’t do something about the genocide in Chicago fast,” he tweeted Monday (January 14), “I’m gonna have an @kanyewest melt down & say Barack Don’t care about?”
The rapper’s reference to a Kanye West moment has to do with the meltdown West had while filming a telethon for Hurricane Katrina victims. ”George Bush don’t care about black people,” West said on the live telecast in 2005.
Shyne’s Twitter tirade began on Sunday when he asked President Obama to call in his celebrity friends for reinforcements.
I particularly enjoyed this part.
“Dear @BarackObama, call Jay-Z to fly his private plane Down to Chicago & you fly yours the same way you called in the stars to win Ohio#help”
Maybe a bit too far…?
“@barackobama I forgot you weren’t an impoverished inner city kid! You grew up in Kansas & Hawaii! You only play the ghetto card come election time!”
Perhaps the reason MSM outlets won’t be covering the story?
