Lupe Fiasco Calls Obama "The Biggest Terrorist"
Lupe Fiasco has been an ardent critic of President Obama and now the Chicago rapper is making headlines after he called the president "the biggest terrorist."
“To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America,” he said in an interview with CBS News' "What's Trending." “For me, I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism. The root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, 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 that we can really get on our own.”
Lupe also explained why he is not a part of the American political process in any way, despite being a rapper that addresses societal issues.
He continued, “I don’t vote. I don’t get involved in politics. Because it’s meaningless, to be honest. First of all, I’m a real big believer if I’m going to vouch for someone, I’m going to stand behind everything they do. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says I stand for this person, then I have to take responsibility for everything that he does. Because that’s just how I am as a human being. Politicians aren’t going to do that, because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”
This is not the first time Fiasco has been critical of Obama.
After the apparent slaying of terrorist Osama Bin Laden, he said, "Osama Dead!?! Afghan Operation done now??? Now kill poverty, wack schools, and US imperialism..."
