Influential Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco recently had some harsh words for President Barack Obama, which is no surprise for anyone who follows his music. Lupe's been critical of Obama in the past, but he took it a step further when he called Obama "the biggest terrorist" in America in an interview with CBS News.
“In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America," he said. "For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it’s easy for us because it’s really just some oil, which we can really get on our own."
I understand the point Lupe is trying to make -- that U.S. foreign policy helps create terrorists -- but calling the president a terrorist is, undoubtedly, ridiculous.
