Hip Hop Billionaire Defends Chavez

By Debbie Schlussel
Hip hop billionaire, Russell Simmons, is mad that Americans are upset by Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez’s outrageous, anti-American comments at the UN and around New York.
Instead of attacking Chavez’s comments, Simmons–the man who made billions from American consumers of his Def Jam records and his Phat Farm clothes–attacked Americans.
Today’s New York Daily News reports that Simmons made these absurd comments:

“The name-calling . . . perpetuates the cycle of violence. We have freedom of speech in this country, and he was expressing an opinion. It wasn’t the most eloquent way to say it, but all this outrage because someone has an opinion is just negative. We should promote love and understanding.”

Hip Hop Billionaire Russell Simmons Pimps for US-Hater Hugo Chavez

Uh, “name-calling”? Chavez called Bush “the devil” and an “alcoholic.” Simmons’ Rodney King can’t-we-all-just-get-along? philosophy is anachronistic in this day and age. Leave it to a “trend-setter” like Simmons not to have a clue.
And by the way, Simmons made this ludicrous statement at

the Clinton Global Initiative conference at the Sheraton, where former President Bill Clinton pushed his stands on climate change, poverty and disease.

Figures. Simmons is hardly one to lecture anyone about promoting love and understanding, since his Hip-Hop Summit Action Network promotes Islamofascism and anti-Semitism, as I detailed in the Jerusalem Post.

Of course, Simmons falls into that leftist liberal category where anything is tolerated as long as itís anti-American. I wonder how long Chavez would let Simmons keep his money if Simmons moved to the Peoples Republic of Venezuela. Just a thought.

LONG before Ronald[6] Wilson[6] Reagan[6] got into the WHITE House the so-called “third” world has regarded the denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as the root of MOST evil…yet when a DEMOCRATICALLY elected official voices his objections to someone who got in on a coup, he’s vilified???
Amerikkka is more famous for its CHUTZPAH and HUBRIS than it is for its pseudoliberation theology, and now that the chickens are coming home to roost the limbaughnistas are shaking in their boots—i LOVE it:)
You can only PRAY that Mr I-was-getting-high-while-the-UNfortunate-sons were trudging thru the rice paddies in Vietnam IS getting drunk, TAHT would explain why he’s so arrogant and idiotic to the rest of the CIVILIZED world!!!

Ah yes Hugo chavez the little man who couldn’t, It seems all these little evil people come here to AMERICA to sound off, with their trite comments and accusations of how bad it is here in America, yet they keep coming back.
As far as The President getting drunk while in the service and not trudging through the paddies of Vietnam, he was an F-102, Delta Daggar pilot and the 102′s, and he did volunteer to go however his MOS did not fit into the scheme of deployment in RVN, get your facts straight, …But at least he served and did NOT claim to be a phony hero ala John ‘Hanoi’ Kerry or like BJ Clinton who was off in some communist country bad mouthing the United States, Canada was clintons second choice.

Sadly, Simmons is not alone. An MSN on-line poll asked whether you agree or disagree with Chavez’s diatribe. A full 52% of respondents agreed. Please, Debby, tell me MSN is 1) owned by Osama Bin Laden, 2) rigged by Bush-hating leftists, or 3)simply inaccurate due to “software issues”.

How ironic, this post, and right next to the comments THREE ads for Baby Phat in the Ads by Gooooogle.
I will not buy the products produced by this hip hop mogul’s [now - or soon to be ex?] wife – there was a pair of shoes I wanted and as soon as I saw the brand – knew I could easily live without them.
THOSE GOOGLE ADS ARE A BIG PROBLEM. I CANNOT CONTROL WHAT IS ON THE ADS. WE KEEP TRYING TO BAN COMPANIES LIKE THAT, BUT CAN’T GET THEM BANNED FAST ENOUGH. THANKS FOR POINTING THIS OUT, AND PLEASE KNOW THAT I DO NOT AND WOULD NOT CHOOSE THOSE KINDS OF ADS.

BT in SA: It is very difficult to block out every single website that displays these kind of Goooogle ads. But what you can do is click on the ads without buying anything :) That way, the advertisers lose money, and Debbie makes money on ad clicks.

I wished the FBI wouldn’t have given Google the chance to pop off. They could have hired a service that monitors Google hits instead of asking for their help. There is a kind of wealth that leads some people to almost a stateless being where countries are just docking points based on the tax advantages. It’s not until they have to sit out a World War somewhere that these people, that take American citizenship for granted, realize what a great country they live in. I remember Googling my friend’s name with him at a bar and just two hits came up, both terrorism papers from the 1980′s that were published. Now there are ten pages of stupid stuff worldwide on a movie part he had. Scary. I hope the Google billionaires get a clue.

Debbie – Wasn’t complaining, rather realized it wasn’t your fault the ads were there – just merely pointed it out for your information; and
Twit – Now that I know this – will click on each and every one of them twice from now on! Thanks for giving me the scoop that the advertisers will lose $$$ and Debbie will make some! Wish I’d have known earlier, but know now!

Why doesn’t this mental primate move to Venezuela and peddle his shit there? Answer: Because Latinos living in countries in Central and South America hate blacks (see how blacks are treated in Castro’s Cuba). This mental moron should only try living in a cesspool like that and mouth-off against the government.
It’ll be a beat-down followed by a long stint in a lice-infested prison.

Q: What did Hip Hop Billionaire Russell Simmons get on his SAT
A: barbecue sauce

KOAJaps on September 26, 2006 at 4:05 pm

Russel Simmons spawned from the primal soup of Hollis Woods Jamaica Queens NY. He was street thug and Drug pusher. Some how he became this hip hop mogal ? Follow the train Russel aka Russel Simmons.
THIS PERSON IS CLUELESS PERIOD. He produces and sponsors a radio show in Atlanta V103 Frank & Wanda show they are just as brain dead as he is. They all must be on crank or crack. It is all verbal bs and the black Atlanta crowd go along with it. As long as it is a black person slinging it they swallow it hook, line, sinker, and the boat! Other wise you will get the drama,plenty of drama.
IT is the communist socialist agenda, black people against white people that Martin Luther King preached ( he was not a Christian) out of Ebineszer Baptist Church.

Here is where the rubber meets the road folks -
Most Americans recognize that shakedown artists like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are working an immensely lucrative racket, sponsored by the conspiracy for world government and implemented by the nationís Communist government schools. Train white boys ñ honkies ñ from kindergarten through high school and college to believe they are guilty of ìracism,î and when they are grown they will collaborate in shaking themselves down. Hey, if it ainít broke, donít fix it, right Jesse! Right Russel !
Because of intense, lifelong brainwashing, not enough Americans yet understand that Mike (Martin Luther) King, Jr., is an even bigger fraud; that in fact everything we have been told about him is phony, even starting with his name, which his father changed to enhance their career in religion. As part of the uncelebration of the phony holiday inflicted in his name, here again is our annual rendition of the facts.
There are five aspects of the King career: his Communism, his violence, his plagiarism, the fact that he was a sexual predator who made Bildo Clinton, the Arkansas rapist, look like a cloistered monk; and the fact that he did not believe in Christianity.
What is the saying the apple don’t fall far from the tree and Russel Simmon’s is one of the apples that followed the Mike Kings Train, along with the MSM ( drive by media), or from Russsels street people drive by shottings it is one and the same.
FRAUD – FRAUD – FRAUD – FRAUD WAKE UP AMERICA !
WHY DON’T THEY UNDERSTAND !
