White House Falls into Common Trap
The White House put itself into a box - Block the hateful race baiting rapper Common from his scheduled appearance at the White House Wednesday and make the story bigger, or leave things alone and add another radical hater to the list of Obama friends. They did the wrong thing, of course, and let the invite stand.
"It's ironic that -- to take out those particular lyrics about this particular artist [who is] in fact known as a socially conscious hip-hop artist, rapper who has done a lot of good things. You can oppose some of what he has done and appreciate some of the other things he has done," White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday afternoon.
The New Jersey Police Union is unhappy with the Obamas because of cop hating lyrics, as all Americans should be. No surprise, Common has a connection to the race divide stomping Reverend Wright.
