Apparently he played this one song for 30 minutes straight and was kicked off stage by concert organizers.

Oooh where's the freedom of speech?! What will become of this nobody rapper who agreed to come to the White House?

fatatty - 2013-01-21
He's actually a pretty well known and successful rapper. But this was a pretty silly way to protest, and I don't think anyone needs to be outraged.

Nobody rapper? Kids today...

Anyone who samples Modest Mouse, turns it into a mainstream played out pop song, and simultaneously declares themselves "anti-establishment" and says that the US Government and it's president are the biggest terrorists in the world, and that if the US government didn't exist there would be no terrorism, isn't really anyone to get worked up over or take seriously.

oh shit he is the modest mouse rapper?


Gmork - 2013-01-21
So yeah, a nobody rapper.

"what happened to freedom of speech!"

it got mixed on the down-low.
SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-01-21
From what I can find, this was even an official inauguration party, he went on and on for thirty minutes rapping basically the same song, and the crowd was getting annoyed. The firm running the event made a decision and moved him off to get the next act started.

He was more than given time to say his piece, and he overstayed his welcome. He forgot the first rule of swaying the masses: Entertain first or they won't listen.
Prickly Pete - 2013-01-21
What does he mean "freedom of speech"? I didn't see him get arrested or beheaded so there's your freedom of speech, dumbass.
dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-01-21
He's like all the people on YouTube who say their freedom of speech has been taken away when someone bans them from their channel for repeatedly calling the channel owner a niggerfaggot.

Editing is not censorship. Censorship is when the government shuts down your site. When someone deletes your comments from their own site, that's editing. There's good editing and bad editing, but everyone has the right to edit their own publication.

And concert organizers can throw a performer off of their own stage.

It would be nice if people in this country could figure out that "freedom of speech" doesn't mean you have a constitutionally guaranteed right to an audience.

Nor does it not make you free from the consequences of making a jackass out of yourself.

The Bill of Rights is basically there to express the relationship between citizens and the government, which is to say, a citizen's right to do stuff trumps any wish the government might have for them not to do it. What the Bill of Rights DOESN'T cover is citizen vs. citizen, and that's where the government has a legitimate role in curbing speech and other activities.

Protesting Obama's policies: okay because the government has no right to object. Protesting Obama's policies at 3am over a loudspeaker: not okay because some of us have to work in the morning.

That guy - 2013-01-21
He's keeping it real!
Adham Nu'man - 2013-01-22
Well, that was a total FIASCO!
SteamPoweredKleenex - 2013-01-22
Which rapper is Fiasco?

EvilHomer - 2013-01-22
An entertainer making disparaging remarks about our President at an inappropriate time?! Preposterous. Imagine how offended we'd be if something like this had happened during Bush's tenure.
dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-01-22
I don't think anyone is really offended by anything here besides an annoying rapper being a retard and getting attention for it.

And yeah, people got bent all the time when entertainers talked shit about Bush. They were just usually the people who voted for him. Same case with Obama.
