Obama’s iPod, my messages
Did you know that US President Obama and I share the same taste in music? Oh, yeah. He should be flattered that we each listen to the same music on our iPods.
I love music that degrades women, advocates crime, endorses illicit drug use, and generally fosters an attitude of, well, an attitude. I not only love it, I’m behind it. I created the hip hop genre; I was rap before rap was cool.
Now Obama’s taste in music is not new news. I’ve known Obama was a Jay-Z fan since 2008. I’m just surprised this fact eluded so many self-righteous Americans. In the past, such musical leanings would raise a red flag that I would have to dispatch legions to claw back.
I suppose that these days most people buy the line that “it’s just music.” And, of course, I agree. It’s just music, nothing more.
What alarms me, however, is the expressed opinions of one writer, Thomas Chatterton Williams. Williams disagrees with me that all that ignorant, misogynistic, criminal and violent content is “just music.” In an article entitled, “President Obama’s ‘Rap Palate’,” he criticized Obama for this presidential proclamation:
Jay-Z used to be sort of what predominated, but now I’ve got a little Nas and a little Lil Wayne and some other stuff, but I would not claim to be an expert.
First of all, “not an expert”? That seems to sum up Obama’s status for everything, but hey, I would have voted for him also. I love most of his policies.
But I digress. This Williams guy is coming dangerously close to blowing my cover in the music industry, by stating in plain language that “hip hop” music advocates the same things as I:
Lil Wayne is emblematic of a hip-hop culture that is ignorant, misogynistic, casually criminal and often violent.
Hey, Mr. Williams, keep your big mouth shut. Obama, and all the young, impressionable, poor, easily influenced, kids in America can listen to whatever they want. Who are you, the morally superior thought police? Apparently so, listen to what else this busy-body Williams spouts:
Naming thuggish rappers might make Mr. Obama seem relatable and cool to a generation of Americans under the sway of hip-hop culture, but it sends a harmful message—especially when, in black America, some 70% of babies are born out of wedlock.
“Harmful messages”? Who are you to judge, Mr. Williams? What you call harmful I (and many others of my servants) call “cool” or “hip.” Babies born out of wedlock? What’s wrong with that? If I could have my way they would not have been born in the first place. You should at least be pleased that these babies slipped my abortion grip.
You see, I have used music throughout the ages to push my agenda of “harmful messages.” But in the old days I had to get people to come to where music was, and, frankly, that music was pretty tame. But today, music is everywhere accessible, and in seemingly endless variety. Live music, recorded music, pirated music, it’s everywhere. And add to the music and lyrics the new musical dimensions of MTV and music videos, and I find endless creative (and unhindered) outlets for my powerful messages.
I often wonder, where are these kid’s parents? Ha ha ha ha ha.
Vulgar language, obscene phrases, violent expressions–I love them all as clear expressions of my will on earth. And the more kids I can get to listen to “just music” of this type, the more I can work through their minds to their hearts to influence them to faithfully carry out my will.
So, Mr. Williams, lay off Obama and his iPod. His iPod is Satan Approved.
