The Irish Examiner reports that rapper Dr. Dre has based three of his Beats by Dre headphone companies in Ireland due to the country’s generous corporate tax rate which reduces his tax liability.

Dr Dre’s business empire, Beats Electronics, this year established three separate companies in Clonakilty, Co Cork, to avail of Ireland’s corporate tax rate.

    The fact that so many businesses are moving to low corporate tax countries is proof that low taxes attract business….

    …but retarded racist rich leftards – while moving to lower taxed areas – actually deny the obvious while blaming Bush and calling middle-class conservatives RAAAACIST.

    This is beyond hypocrisy – this is a war on hard-working normal middle-class America.

    The same racist rich leftards now want to disarm Americans. Anybody guess what comes next?

    Will Americans rise up and fight these racist rich fascist fucks?

    So long as he says that the rich should pay more, he’s given a pass on his actual failure to do so. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Don’t forget that when those companies go overseas, so do the jobs.

    Come on, libtards! What do you have to say now? When Romney did it, it was bad. When Dr. Dre does it, it’s good!

    Phucking hypocrites.
