Coincidence?: Barack “Police Acted Stupidly” Obama Put Campaign Latrines on Top of Police Memorial, UPDATED: Key Supporter Simmons Praised/Promoted “F- the Police”
Despite Barack Obama’s gazillion-step back-track cha-cha over his absurd comments about Cambridge Police “act[ing] stupidly”–and his phone call with Sgt. James Crowley–we know what he really thinks of the police. He shares the same thoughts as Henry Louis “Ya, I’ll talk to your mama outside” Gates, Jr.
And for those who didn’t know what President Obama thought of the police, there might just be a tiny hint in the fact that, during during the election campaign, Obama set up porta potties directly on top of the Portland Police Memorial, which honors the city’s 25 fallen police officers. (Thanks to my bud, Brett Winterble of Covert Radio for the tips.)
Obama Porta Potties on Top of Police Memorial
Or there might be another tiny hint in the fact that one of Barack Hussein Obama’s biggest campaign supporters was none other than Russell Simmons, the well known hip-hop mogul who repeatedly praised and promoted the rap single, “F— Tha Police!” by NWA, whose former members were also Obama supporters. Simmons helped put together the “Yes We Can” celebrity music videos for the Obama campaign and produced the “Yes We Can” mix tape in conjunction with the Obama campaign. (And check out Simmons’ thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to Obama and his minions.) The Prez accepted Simmons cash, never disavowed any of these cretins, nor ever uttered a word against their famous hate-on-the-police song.
**** UPDATE, 07/25/09, 9:45 p.m.: In his book, “Do You!: 12 Laws to Access the Power in You to Achieve Happiness and Success,” Russell Simmons wrote:
“In all the years I’ve been involved in hip-hop, one of the most thrilling moments for me came in 1989 when NWA released their song ‘F— [DS: word edited with dashes] tha Police.’ . . . I heard a group of young people from South Central Los Angeles who had the courage to speak the truth about the police. . . . I do believe that ‘F— tha Police’ did make the atmosphere a little bit better in Los Angeles for a time.”
“I ask if he even has time to listen to music any more. ‘Oh yeah, man. If you put on ‘F— [DS: F-word edited] Da Police’ on that stereo, man, I’ll jump out this car right now. Right out the window.’ He pulses in his seat.”
END UPDATE ****
Just in case, you forgot the song, below is a dope rendition by my favorite rapper, “OG (Ol’ Gangsta) Moses” a/k/a Charlton Heston. (No, Heston never said anything about Jews or homosexuals dying–that’s some jerk smart aleck’s editing.)
To those who didn’t get it, that was a joke (and wasn’t the song), though Heston did read the lyrics of “F— the Police” to a Congressional Committee (sadly that video isn’t available). Here are the complete lyrics of “F— the Police,” which could have been written by Henry Louis “Skip” Gates, Jr.
