Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.
Apparently criticizing the one true president mompants isn’t allowed anymore in American society… Rap Artist Lupe Fiasco was set to perform at an inaugural celebration, but was shoved off stage after he uttered disfavor with president Obama according to people at the concert:
Josh Rogin@joshroginSo Lupe 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.
Just so everyone is clear. Lupe Fiasco accused Barack Obama of not addressing right-wing racism. That’s why he was kicked off stange, ok?
Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.
Fiasco is noted for his anti-establishment views. In an interview with Stephen Colbert on the satirical news show The Colbert Report, Fiasco stated his credo on political philosophy: “You should criticize power even if you agree with it.” In another interview in June 2011 on the CBS program What’s Trending, Fiasco discussed the political content of his music, stating, “My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.” He additionally criticized Obama for his stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In keeping with his anti-establishment views, Fiasco does not vote in U.S. elections.
And he’s a Muslim! Well. That’s cool. I guess. more
