Eminem’s Free Speech Hypocrisy

When rapper Eminem first came to national attention, several years ago, many in America were rightfully alarmed by his “songs” about gang-raping his sister for her 10th birthday and murdering and chopping up his wife Kim in front of their daughter.
But Marshall Mathers III (Eminem’s real name) and his representatives were constantly shouting from the treetops about the First Amendment and his “free speech” rights.
Well, now, the shoe is on the other foot. His twice ex-wife, Kim, has been talking to any and all who will listen–from ABC’s “20/20” to local radio stations in Detroit. She’s blabbed about everything from his penis size to his impotence to his drug abuse to his marital infidelities.

Eminem Hypocrisy: Free Speech for Him (with a Stripper). . .

But Not His Ex-Wife, Kim

So, imagine my surprise when I read this morning’s Detroit Newsistan to read that this champion of First Amendment free speech, Eminem, now can’t handle the exercise thereof by other parties. Yup, Mathers a/k/a Eminem is asking Michigan’s Macomb County Circuit Court to silence Kim Mathers from talking about him to the media.
He’s claiming that this speech is harmful to their daughter. As if Eminem’s rapping about the daughter helping him dump her mother’s body parts in a car trunk in a lake is any less traumatic. It isn’t.
This isn’t the first time Eminem has displayed his hypocrisy in a major way. As I’ve written, Mathers raps about “hos,” “bitches,” and gang-rape and poses with scantily-clad strippers. But he got into a . (Police were called.)
It’s time for someone to finally slap this hypocrite down. And I hope the Macomb County Circuit Court Judge hearing his motion to silence his ex-wife does the job.
The First Amendment doesn’t just apply to repulsive rappers. If Marshall Mathers III/Eminem wants to lecture America on the “virtues” of free speech, he must endure the exercise thereof by Kim Mathers.
Put up or shut up, Eminem. Karma is a bitch.

Eminenema may be another rapper who doesn’t believe half the garbage he spews. I’ve encountered many rappers over the past 2 decades. Some famous, some wanna-be’s. Almost all I’ve seen are frauds who tell their sucker audiences what they want to hear. Some speak and act with a gangsta thug attitude while on stage and in video interviews. When the show or interview is over they change personalities and become nice, pleasant individuals. I’ve even had some apologize to me for their on-stage behavior (making anti-white remarks) and admit it’s all part of the act. It’s not surprising to see Mather’s acting this way. Who knows how much of his act is real or not.

Between him and ICP, Detroit is leading the world in musical talent!

Well…I hope that after all these years we can move beyond Eminem being dsescribed as the “white” rapper…..he is a rapper…simple and plain and just like the rest of his ilk that insist on doing disrespectful music it is evidence that the “chickens have come home to roost.” Those with talent and PLAY INSTRUMENTS are few and far between in this new world order of gutter music….but instead of condemning the artist it high time that the radio stations, distributors, media outlets(BET, VIACOM, MTV) and record companies be contacted and brought to task for this negative imagery….Blacks, Whites and folks of all strata are being disrespected..ENOUGH!!!

I hope the court does the right thing. I hope the court silences both Mathers and the wife, all rappers, Oprah, Jerry Springer, Dr. Phil, all courtroom TV shows, and all of the other mindless drivel that contaminates our First Amendment airwaves.
You’d think I’d have some “right” not to be bombarded by crap all day, every day. Thankfully the media geniuses haven’t yet been able to pass legislation banning the OFF switch. It’s coming though, the OFF switch on your radio and TV clearly infringes on their Constitutional rights.

Wow, you guys are right on the money. But you know what…I can bet any of you that 97% of eminem fans, don’t even know he produced such songs about his sister and his mom.
And the off switch thing won’t happen. The same death busters that force force force force force this garbage in your face no matter where you go or what channel you watch, will show their conservationist side. They know you can’t leave your TV or radio or whatever on forever.
But I gotta admit…his ex-wife is a goddess…but that’s irrelevant.

Will the “Real Slim Shady Please SHUT UP”??

Great article, La Deb!
Mathers is just a typical do as I say not as I do celeb.
Curly, nobody is saying for the court to silence the dolts. That wasn’t the point, it’s what a hypocrite Mathers is, just like Al Gore, Oprah, and all the others.
I do agree, the “OFF” switch is the best silencer and works great for me.

Debbie, I was reading in the NYT how houses in Detroit are worth less than cars. I think me and you should start a real estate company and snap up some houses, sit on them for about 50 years until Detroit becomes decent, and then retire.

Debbie, you follow so much more of this “culture” (what an oxymoron that is about this dude) stuff than I do that my comments would just be noise on this. I hate rap and hip hop and all that crap anyway–yeah, I’m just too square I guess–but you make a great point on this dude.
However—where is the “eminemsrevenge” to weigh in when you need him???

“EnemasRegurgitate” is spinning in a high-speed wobble because his punkshit icon got it broke off in his ass by Debbie. Once again, another shithouse expert on nothing shows his true hypocrisy by spouting one line of jibberish but practicing the other. These rappers and hollywood schmucks need to keep their ignorant blowholes shut and just exist in their little dreamland and leave reality to those who have a true grasp on it.
