Lupe Fiasco Clarifies Obama Statement In Clip From "The O'Reilly Factor"

UPDATE #3: Lupe engages Bill O'Reilly in a debate about the occupation of Afghanistan, and says he was not trying to simply undermine President Obama.

No stranger to controversy, FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly recently weighed in on Lupe Fiasco’s comments regarding President Obama as “the biggest terrorist.” After the Chicago, Illinois rapper declined to appear on “The O’Reilly Factor,” the show’s host lashed out at Lu, branding him a “pinhead.”

“Mr. Fiasco has been invited on ‘The Factor’ but has declined, possibly because he could not possibly defend that remark, which makes him a pinhead,” he said during his “Pinheads & Patriots” segment. “Now the reason I say I wish I was named Lupe Fiasco, wouldn't it be great, ‘The Fiasco Factor?’ I mean, it would be tremendous.”

Lu responded to his claims, stating that he would "NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!"

Lupe previously defended his comments, explaining that he had “nothing to clarify. “It's funky because everybody's pulling soundbites from this one interview that we did, but they don't talk about anything else from the interview. [...] So it's really about, 'What do people want to listen to?' It's not what I want to talk about, cause I want to talk about all types of shit... there wasn't the same reaction about me having a book club... about me trying to promote literacy in a country with 50 million functioning illiterates walking around, because we have a failed and flawed education system."

Whoa! I got invited to the O'reilly factor and turned it down??? Thats news to me...would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!less than a minute ago via Mobile Web Favorite Retweet Reply

UPDATE: According to The LupEND Blog, Lupe will be taping an interview for "The O'Reilly Factor" today, with the episode airing next week. HipHopDX will keep you updated.

[June 16]

UPDATE #2: In anticipation of the interview airing tonight at 8 p.m. on FOX News, Lupe Fiasco attempts to explain to Bill O’Reilly why he made his controversial comments calling President Obama “the biggest terrorist.” An advance clip from the show sees the FOX pundit trying to understand what Lu meant.

“To put it into context, I was asked about a song I did called ‘Words I Never Said,’ which addresses the war on terrorism,” says Lupe. “So the statement that I made, which was ‘I believe that the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America and its foreign policy,’ that was what the whole context of everything was. And there’s really just an expression of me trying to understand, critically, the society.”

Lupe’s full appearance is below.

    Jewbag bankers are the cancer of the planet. I'd love to meet Lupe and explain how the system works. He's correct on virtually everything. I do NOT agree at all with his stance on refusing to vote. That is absolutely fruitless and idiotic, but he is a very intelligent young black man, to say the least. He may be the only rapper out today besides Immortal Technique to serve as a role model to American kids of all backgrounds.

  • Fiasco Factor

    Lupe didn't look like a asshole, idiot or etc. He stated his opinion. I mean lets be real our gov will only let you know what they want you to know. If you honestly believe our gov is "Noble" and wont mislead you than you need to wake up.

  • billy bucks

    How can you guys give props for Lupe going on this show. He looked like an asshole. I'm a Lupe fan, but he got butt fucked on TV. If you don't know what you're talking about stay the fuck off the show.

    • Common Sense

      The only person that looked like an ahole on that show is the known ahole Bill and he never disproved Lupe's point that he wasn't just talking about Obama but the foreign policy from him him and other presidents in the past. It's so funny to see this racist idiot get played by a fellow young smart black man that is more than twenty years his junior LOL. If you didn't understand some of this because it's over your head have someone explain it to you.

    Well, if you look at Lupe's Twitter profile, he said that they edited out several things: "Did they edit out the part about the US military manuals that teach you how to be a terrorist?" "Yes. No mention regarding military manuals. Oh really...come on billy...well read em for your self America" So it may not be fair to judge him poorly if they edited out all of the points that he made to try to make him look bad...

      we're fighting a war. Should we be handing out cupcakes? You need to realize that this world is harsh. The countries that want us blown off the face of the earth are GANGSTER...if things ran the way YOU think they should, we'd ALL be living in caves eating rat too. We ARE noble compared to the rest of the world. We'll fuck you up if we have to, and we'll help you out if you need it...Where else do YOU want to live? MOVE if you think there's a better country!!

    fuck fox news and bill o'reilly dumb ass and fuck oboma uncle tom ass nigga too!!!!lupe won that shit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The Show Must Go On

    ...and another thing, whether you agree with Lupe or not, you HAVE to give him props for going on the O'Reilly Factor. O'Reilly can potentially cause his guests to commit media suicide due to lack of information and, of course, O'Reilly's methods in interviewing. So for Lupe going on the show, props holmes. Two completely different cultures duking it out on national television.

    • Javi

      Totally agree, O'Reilly continuously brings people he feels he can man handle on his show. He always interrupts, and always bends the situation to his benefit. I think Lupe could of handled himself a little bit more professional but I think over all he did a good job in defending himself, and his views. Lupe is a coo ass nigga, cause if you think about it not too many people would of remained calm like he did. Over all I think this whole thing is stupid..instead of arguing about it they could do something about it

      o'reilly is one of the more intelligent people on fox, I dont agree with all his points but if you actually watch his show (especially in recent years where he has backed off from the headstrong character he used to be) you'll see that,

  • The Show Must Go On

    I'm glad this finally went down. Though O'Reilly had his moments of talking over Lupe, though Lupe had his moments of being unclear of his Obama statement, overall great interview. What is irritating though is the editing that Fox did on this interview. I hope the full interview comes out soon.




  • X

    First and foremost, I'm a fan of Lupe. As far as with the interview...Edited (Very Likely) or not...Lupe's arguments were not as sharp at all. For all the previous posters stating "facts" in Lupe's defense...He didn't use of any the "facts" to support his claim or probably doesn't know to begin with...To be honest, why go on Bill O'Reily and not Bill Maher? He has a better chance of not being made a fool out of (Which O'Reily intended & succeeded) While Lupe did excerise his right to Freedom of Speech... the delivery has to be executed to the fullest. Especially in politics. Effort = B/B-

  • Brik

    Here is the thing, Lupe is an intellegent person, he knows his history and his current events. However, as with a lot of young people we let our passions get ahead of our intellegence, when we feel strongly about an issue. Things are rarely as cut and dry as they seem, and when you speak you got to think first about what you say and when, because there will be the Bill O'Reilly's out there who are also intellegent, that will use that passion either against you or for their personal or proffessional gain, or whatever agenda they may have.

  • joe5286

    wish Lupe used O'Reilly's platform to talk about 9/11 truth. Lupe knows that 911 was an inside job, but he acted like the War on Terror was legitimate in this segment

    • r

      ino, he couldve jumped in easily when o'reilly said about 9/11 but he just let it pass by. fuck that shitt

  • Mack

    First things first, If you want to agree you will or if you dont you wont. The one thing I keep seeing as a trend when reviewing comments is Lupes "showing". So he didn't rep himself well/didnt show well? That's the general feeling i'm getting. Well I thought the purpose was for lupe to come on the show and defend or clarify his statements. Which I seen him do or atleast try to over O'reilly's usual, "i'll talk louder than you and get my point across so I can never seem wrong" antic. Newsflash people..... He clarified his statement and the lack of the media putting things in context. So how do you say he mis-represents himself? The one thing that bothers me is never whats said by the media or artists but the Lack of intelligence I find when reading all the comments of people who respond. think about what your saying and why, becuase no-one gives a shit what you or I say, and no-one REALLY gives a shit when we sound dumb as rock, when we do respond. Simply clarified why O'reilly was pointing out Lupe's fans like we have the intelligence of a third grader. STEP YOUR COMPREHENSION GAME UP PEOPLE/bloggers

    • retarded

      is what you are

  • Hmmm....stick to rap kid.

    I'm surprised, O'Reilly was very rational and sound in his arguments and Lupe looked like an idiot. It's obvious from what he said that his opinion of calling Obama a terrorist was not an intelligent, thought out opinion and he didn't even do the research on his arguments before going up against a professional (the reasons for the afghanistan war).

    • Hmmm...stick to flipping burgers kid

      you obviously didnt watch. and there's this little thing called editing.

  • Shaun

    listen guys...i think Bill o'reily was right here, but why you guys saying shit about Lupe now like honestly. He has an opinion, everyone has an opinion and this show is just a target range where opinions get shot down. The whole fox news organization is like that honestly, if you have an opinion stick by it. Thats one of the best things abot this country, as for me thinking Obama's a terrorist, depends how you look at it because i'm sure there's people in other countries that see us as a bunch of terrorists.

    Look wars are always started by bitter parties for stupid brash reasons in this case for oil plus Lupe is sounding super bias. Both al qaeda and the american government cannot be trusted. One party wants to effectively take over the world (Dont lie to yourself they do) and one wants to be a tyrant and push people around expecting al qaeda and other political opponents in general not to fight back.

Lupe's intentions are good but i dont think he knows enough. Need to get someone like KRS-ONE or Prodigy on the show, they know the real deal.

  • John Mullins

    Ive always been of fan of Lupe's music and thought of him as being a pretty smart person. He still is, but he didn't make such a good showing here. He didn't do a good job of backing up what he was saying with facts and spent most of the time defending his comments and responding to Bill, rather than explaining. Bill controlled that whole discussion

    • ollie

      he didn't really explain himself but what he needed to do was engage with what o'reilly was saying. for example o'reilly says 'obama is not a terrorist. he is doing what he thinks is right....' lupe needed to say 'and terrorists don't believe what they are doing is right?' lupe just had an agenda on a sheet and he rushed it

    Lupe is a guy who wasn't able to handle the politics going on with Atlantic Records. This guy shouldn't be allowed to talk about real things. Funny how all his fans are hailing him as the next messiah, while he's basically just another rapper who's using this rebel thing as his gimmick and image, trying to sell records to you. People who are using music as a form of education have missed it. It's really funny how he's going to make all of you think you're smart when you're listening to him just because he says some big words.

    • Anonymous

      1. your ridiculous comparison of being an artist on a record label and being the leader of the world is nothing more than a lame cheap shot. they have zero relation to eachother. youre just taking shots. 2. i couldnt disagree more with lupe but he at least he knows what he's talking about. the only reason you say its a gimmick is because its his profession to rap and he's in the business of selling record. by that logic u could say everybody in the industry with an outspoken opinion is a gimmick. at least lupe makes the effort to talk about it and does so in a way that's intelligent.. even if u dont agree with his views.

    Read your governments budget and see exactly how much they spend on military aid. Also check the Israel fund, America gave $3Bn last year and this year, and has over $240 million in stockpiles in Israel.

  • Opinion Matters

    Lupe well-done for keeping your composure, while arguing the most idiot TV show host on earth. O’Reilly himself doesn’t even know how to talk politically or politely, how can a fool like O’Reilly asks someone else whether he has a higher education or not. What a “Pinhead”? Bill O’Reilly believes that OBAMA was a mistake to be even a President of the United States and now pretending that he is siding with the President. What a joke. These fools who are making senseless comments, first listen carefully and observe the whole debate the way is going then reach your conclusion.

Of course Obama ain't a terrorist because he's a puppet, but he's willingness to overlook the atrocious shit cause through the occupation in Iraq, Afgan and his side bombings in other countries makes him accountable.

    • Eddy.

      Obama is a glorified terrorist, his actions (Killing Bin Laden) will only lead to the deaths of thousands more innocent Americans, but then of course we will all blame Islam again.

  • emiles

    there was no winner or loser here, they barely had time to have a legitimate debate. Lupe Fiasco is basically saying if you're going to blame the Afghanistan government (which we took down) for allowing terrorism then we are just as guilty since our foreign policies have allowed governments like Afghanistan to do what they do, in all reality no one cared what was happening over there until they hurt us. O'Reilly is stating the Presidents job isn't to be superman and save for world form corruption but merely keep the people safe (and that may require getting ones hands dirty). This was really a idealistic dispute and it really makes you think. I know people have a lot of pre-conceived notion about O'Reilly but in recent times hes cooled down and after seeing him have a civil debate with John Stewart I've earned a respect for him, that doesn't mean I agree with him though.

    • Your Opinion Matters

      I surely welcome your comment here by observing both sides, unlike these selfish idiots who don’t get it half of the debate. Although, O'Reilly is narrow mind “pinhead” who doesn’t consider what he says most of the time… He is typical stereotype Racist, so is FOX NEWS and all their Staff. I called it FAKE NEWS… But well-done Mate for being balanced audience..!!

    Kill for Peace! (smh) "Humanitarian Aid" sure has changed from my days. I thought it involved dropping food, not bombs?? and NATO is saving them from being killed by Gadaffi?? So....if these aren't "hostilities....not "acts of war" I guess that makes us_terrorists? Suppose we will make our own list? Nothing to investigate. This isn't a war according to White House lawyers. This must be lies. According to Obama there are no hostilities in Libya hence he doesn't need congressional approval. How could these civilians have been killed, since Obama said this isn't a war? So the building just collapsed. Gawd how I regret voting for that man. NATO has lost the air war in Libya. Now,it is beginning to lose the propaganda war too.

How are you going to shun your own government yet fail to mention any critical words for the other side?

    • neverkopout

      you see sir this is where I disagree with you first of all one man terrorist is another mans freedom fighter.So Obama is for a you a freedom fighter. However what lupe is trying to say is this Obama and every other president before him is a terrorist because of their foreign policy. Their foreign policy is so creul and soo wicked that only way these people decide to fight back is to become terrorist. Now that goverment in Afghanistan that orielly is talking about the american government funded that Afghanistan government with weapons in 1991 ( I believe) to defeat the russian those same weapons are the weapons bin landen used to arm his organisation so american government send your troops to be killed by weapons they made. My question to you is this how would react to china coming to america making deals that destroyed uour well being because that is what america does with its foreign policy to other country

    • Alexander Foes

      How is he right on this one? Lupe's words were taken out of context. Obama is the biggest terrorist right now. We are not in the past, we are talking about right now. Also, Have you read the military killing manuals....they are very similar to terrorist manuals, except without suicide bombing. It is no longer the presidents job to protect the country as you have seen: The American Dream is no longer existent, people are homeless, starving, people are forced to live a subversive life of drugs and violence in the ghettos that their own government placed them in and failed to protect them. You watch way too much Fox News. Go fuck a bunch of republicans, except save Michelle Bachmann for me, because she is a fine ass fucking bitch.

  • Dont Hate Articulate

    Lupe has some points but the word terrorist is a little overstated these days. I mean realistically I could label the GOP as terrorists because all they do is use fear to control the masses. Find a different word lupe and maybe you'd have a stronger argument. O'Reilly couldn't differentiate the War in Afghanistan and the hunt for Bin Laden. It was all part of the same operation in retaliation. Much love to the soldiers.

    Why do these rappers or anybody black that have something to say feel as though it would be a good ideal to go on fox news and express their views. That platform is not for us fox news has let us know plenty of times how bias they are. Lupe just looked like a dick head talking to him

  • Cognac

    It's not like Obama can just get up one day and say "You know what? End of this!" and send all the troops home. That would create a huge power vacuum in Afghanistan that India, Iran, Pakistan and China would all try to fill all at once and could create a conflict that makes the Afghanistan War look like Disney World. Also, the US is in Afghanistan at the request of the Afghan Government. Our country would look like straight pussies if we packed up and left suddenly. Every militant organization in the world would just do whatever the hell they wanted if we made a bitch move like that.

    • Anonymous

      What did you read to come up with this conclusion? Afgan has been in a civil war prior to us even going there. The Us is NOT the world police. This vacuum arguement holds no water. As far, as Obama not being able to fix the mess in a short time well that's partially true because Obama isn't trying to clean the mess but he's trying to perpetrate corporatist/globalist ideologies. Sit down and learn your facts, both you guys!

      Do you expect people to listen to logic and reason. Self-serving conspiracy theories simply believe America wants to kill everyone but America is not inherently evil they have their shortcomings just as every other nation.

  • CodeRed

    A lot of you are puppets just reciting talking points, whether it's to the left or the right. The thing is, the US AND the Taliban are both wrong in the Afghanistan War. The Taliban knowingly hid Bin Laden and are still knowingly working with Al Qaeda. That makes them legitimate targets. Also, they are killing and will continue to kill Afghan citizens. At the same time, the US' actions are causing the deaths of Afghan citizens. There are no good guys in war, but I don't agree with Lupe or o'Reilly

    how are we supposed to know if Lupe backed up his statement or not? first off OReilly has bashed Obama from day 1. now he defends him because a MUSICIAN said something about politics in which Bill is an "expert" on so he wanted to try to make him look stupid. second OReilly also likes to cut off every guest he's ever had and not let them get their point across or thought out. third he records his show, it isn't live, so he has an editing team that does what he or the network wants the show to look like.

    I'm a big fan of lupe but I must say that I'm a little dissappointed.

He really came off looking like Mos Def or somebody like that in this interview.

      Lupes whole point to the interview was to say that anyone should be able to make political statements and that you dont have to bea genius about it to make a point. Hes pretty well informed and he and O'Reilly had a decent debate. You could tell that lupe was getting frustrated cause O'Reilly wouldnt let him explain exactly what he meant. He said the terrorist thing more figuratively than anything.

    Bill MURDERED Lupe on the grand stage. Lupe was talking in circles, saying a whole lot of nothing. Bill laughed at him and insulted his fan base, had him stuttering like an idiot. O'Reilly snatched Lupe's heart out of his chest and swallowed it. Bill Called Lupe by his government name with a smirk, vicious. Lupe's father is a white guy that works on Fox News. His name's Bill.

    Funny how O'Reilly wouldn't let Lupe speak. Doesn't seem like a very good debate when you're talking over the other guy the whole time. The debate isn't about who can be louder and more boisterous, but on the subject of terrorism. What Lupe is saying, that Obama and every other president is a terrorist is in fact true. If you go to any dictionary and connect the dots to every war, every attack, every threat made by not just American presidents, but by just about every other political power, you'll realize it. Hiding behind the anger you have of Al-Qaeda doesn't change the fact that the term "terrorist" can be coined the other way too.

    • @anon

      Since the US has had its war on Terror, terrorism has increased. Get your facts straight! war on terror is a bullshit front GE making money producing arms, Oil companies making money while promoting scarcity, Blackwater making money with its million dollar contracts, people are getting paid to "rebuild countries" Ever time there is a "war" there is money to be made. Stop being a dumb nigga and believe they are "fighting for your freedoms"

    It's really simple Lupe. You sound a little ignorant for a rapper your age because you actually believe Obama is operating in a free world. Tupac, Nas and even Jay Z understand this.

      AMEN! Lupe watched a couple episodes of Democracy Now and all of the sudden he's an expert on American foreign policy.

      well, yea, Bush did fuck everything up....but we elected Obama so that he can fix all of that mess Bush has started!!! maybe he cant do all of that in under 4 years, but he should at least made a small improvement in the US!!! in other words, the US is on the ground with its face planted on the ground, and Obama cant get the US back to its feet, but he could AT LEAST put the US back on its knees!!! but instead, with Obama as President, gas prices were at its highest and the U.S. military are now dealing with this whole Libya bullshit and the unemployment rate is still higher than usual. so honestly, Obama is somewhat no different than Bush

    • emiles

      bush had entire documentaries made on how bad of a president he was, he got plenty of criticism. we're living in an era where if you're famous the media is going to pick on you until the public hates you. see lebron james, tiger woods, congressman weiner, and now lupe fiasco (he seems to be holding his own though)

    • Anonymous

      yeah good point. But the reason why he is being analyzed so hard is because he is the first black president, and people are interested in him. And being a rap site, they talk about every instance where an artist talks about him which is at least once by every artist in the industry. But back to the point, YEAH, it's pathetic people are getting discouraged by Obama's inability to miraculous solve disasters that Bush created.

    I will address some points: 1. Rap does has its politically side, you are only aware to mainstream hipPOP to know about it. Here are some political rap artists: Lupe Fiasco, KRS One, Common sense,Dead prez,imortal technique,2pac... 2.Prior to the enactment of the civil rights act of 1964, the democrats were conservative and republicans were liberals. due to it passing the conservatives could NOT accept it's inception and switched political parties: republicans became conservative and democrats became liberals. 3.The propagandised news sources in the USA is plentiful: fox,msnbc,cnn...All used to brainwash the american sheeple to think a certain way and not question it. 4. And the last, Lupe Fiasco comment related to Obama being a terrorist is fitting; occupying countries not for the sake of liberating the people but for setting up your own puppet regimes,taking control of their valuable sources and causing the genocide of its people is terrorism. Thank You.

Now they wanna get on Lupe's case 'cause he has an opinion on Obama? Since when do republicans care about black people's opinion anyway? Only when they can turn this into way to get people NOT to like Obama. What they're doing is using Lupe against his own people. Publicizing his comments on Obama so that black people and people in the Hip-Hop world will either A.) Embrace Lupe's opinion and therefore not vote for Obama. or B.) Embrace Bill O'Reilly's opinion and actually start listening to that fuckin' prick. Hip-Hop has to stop lending itself as a tool for these sneaky cocksuckers.

    I know this may be crazy, but O'Reilly is more so defending the title of president and Obama just so happens to be in office. I don't think anyone fox news or any other conservative network actually thinks that liberal politicians have an secret agenda to cause terror and do what's worst for society and the same go for conservatives. It's just politics are a dirty game and exaggerations and limited information gets used to persuade voters. In the end it's hard to argue that the citizens in the US have more opportunity than those of every other country, and we do more charity work than the rest of the world. Sorry I won't jump on the bandwagon where it's not cool to rep the red white and blue.

Lybia was a response by the UN which the US is apart of. A response that at least half this country and Lybians wanted him to do even sooner! Dropping bombs on Pakistan, when did that ever stop? Bush Tax cuts were extended because the House held unemployment benefits hostage if they weren't. You know those tax cuts for the wealthy that dumb asses out there think is going to get them a job. Giving money to banks? When dude. I know Bush set them up NICE with TARP or do think Obama did that too? How about Universal Healthcare? Nope! Republicans fucked that up too because it "socialism". Well guess what, cops, firemen, food inspection, roads, social security for your old ass is SOCIALISM too! Fuck outta' here with this Obama ruined my life bullshit.

    • ?

      Do you pay attention to anything other than what Obama says? Hes extended the wars, started a new war, dropping bombs in Pakistan, extended the Bush tax cuts and the patriot act...More inner city schools than ever have been closed, gave out more money to the banks....This could go on and on but I guess none of that really matters? What campaign promises has he went thru with exactly?

    Dudes like Lupe think they are the smartest motherfuckers in the world just because they can string some fucking words together. I never thought I would agree with Bill Oreilly. Fuckin' sellout!

      Lupe is speaking from a position of ignorance, as do many others, but he looks the part of a fool even more talking about an process that he admits he's too arrogant to participate (in). Dude, dont tell me Chevy is better than Ford if you've never driven either. Lupe libeled the President and he's getting it back. That's instant karma. This shit is a lot bigger than one man with a pen living in the White House. Presidents don't go grey overnight for nothing.

    Everybody on this blog site is fucking dumb, ignorant, brainwashed, easily molded, and un-analytical. Cant you see that O'reilly is defending Obama to justify this war? HE VOTED FOR MCCAIN! Why the fuck is he even defending obama now? And then you got the nerve to call Lupe an idiot? most of you didnt even pay attention to his words because most of you still bashin 'em for sayin "obama is a terrorist". shit, ITS TRUE! Mothafucka bout to send troops right back overseas. Libya isnt even our war yet we intervene like the superheroes of the planet, like we dont have our own issues, like we solved poverty, and illiteracy, and prejudice and discrimination. Yall cant tell Lupe shit

    • Righteous as fuck yup damn right

      This is what im sayin: O'reilly hopped on obamas nuts just to prove lupe wrong. If lupe would have said obama is the greatest president to grace these 50 states, o'reilly woulda been obama-bashin like he has for years. Another point im trying to prove is that everybody blames this underlying govt for obamas decisions calling him a puppet. He is making conscience decisions but everybody is willing to blame the people behind him. everybody needs to wake up and realize the capitalist mind is an independent mind. It doesnt need someone else to operate it.

  • Neazy

    I love Lupe, he's one of my favorite artists. But Lupe is a music guy, and artists say things to entertain people. He was just trying to draw attention to the fact that the US government destroys less fortunate peoples' lives in other countries, and by doing that we create terrorism because those people want to retaliate. Is Obama actually a terrorist who's intentionally doing evil things? No, and that's not what Lupe meant. But of course Bill is gonna attack him like that's exactly what he meant because he doesn't get it.

    • Neazy

      @DeepShit How is what he said ignorant? Is it because Obama isn't literally a terrorist? If that's what you think, then you're the ignorant one for not understanding the true meaning of his words.

    • Deep Shit

      @Neazy, "what Lupe meant?" Dude stepped off into politics from a position of ignorance; he writes his own beats...but he communicates ideas for a living nonetheless. He said what he meant, and whether or not he has the balls to stand by his words and not turn politician himself is all that remains to be seen. Sometimes you gotta educate yourself before you jump knee deep in shit.

If you didnt know we've been meddling in the middle east for decades and fucking shit up the whole time. When you kill so many civilians of course youre going to create more than a few "terrorists" that want you out of their region.

  • American_Sheeple

    for my typo on point 2: the conservatives could NOT accept its inception...

  • American_Sheeple

    I will address some points: 1. Rap does has its politically side, you are only aware to mainstream hipPOP to know about it. Here are some political rap artists: Lupe Fiasco, KRS One, Common sense,Dead prez,imortal technique,2pac... 2.Prior to the enactment of the civil rights act of 1964, the democrats were conservative and republicans were liberals. due to it passing the conservatives could accept it's inception and switched political parties: republicans became conservative and democrats became liberals. 3.The propagandised news sources in the USA is plentiful: fox,msnbc,cnn...All used to brainwash the american sheeple to think a certain way and not question it. 4. And the last, Lupe Fiasco comment related to Obama being a terrorist is fitting; occupying countries not for the sake of liberating the people but for setting up your own puppet regimes,taking control of their valuable sources and causing the genocide of its people is terrorism. Thank You.

    Not an O'reilly fan I think lupe's music is great but on this subject he is wrong if obama is a the biggest terorrist the what is the president of yemen,libya or iraq. I mean the whole republican debate was about tearing down everyhing obama has done in the last 3 years. They all support the paul ryan budget plan which would cut welfare,medicaid,and medicare all which obama supports and is fighting for and all are needed most by poor and middle class people. Mean while all republicans support a tax cut for people making 250,000-infiniti that includes jay-z,lil wayne and also lupe.Now the system is not perfect by far but it much better than some other countries that would kill you dead just for thinking about going against them. Those are terrorist.

    • Anthony Lundy

      From what I recall he called obama by name thats why he is on the show in the first place. Second we all can complain about the government or the police or anything else thats not perfect.But if it was not for the government or the police where would we be everybody thats on the police force is not bad just like all politician are not corrupt just like every black person is not a gang member thug and so on.Its easy to complain we you do nothing if he has a problem with the govenment he should offer ways he would fix it from the ground up instead of saying its all wrong and throwing his hands up.

    • ummm

      Obama has killed more people in Libya in the past few months than Gaddafi. Anyways, he wasn't directly calling Obama a terrorist, he was talking about the entire US government which includes former presidents, it's just like their actions fall back on the leader (aka Obama)just like Osama bin Laden got all the blame for Al Qaeda's actions just because he was the leader.

  • Ganjarelli

    I Gotta go with Lupe on this one. We will have the same demonstration we always get in these instances. It's called the "switcheroo", and it's the same, bland dish we've been eating for years. First things first - Know that whoever you vote for, you will still get the same GAME PLAN, regardless of race of political affiliation. Democratic or Republican, this person is who I like to call "The Puppet". This is the fall person. The one that everybody will blame when shit goes bad - ala George W. Bush. There are plenty of people who say "Fuck Bush!" and "We Love Obama!", when the truth is that they're using the same playbook. The playbook was written by the dozen or so richest motherfuckers on the planet (whom I will not refer to as Illuminati, cause that's something else altogether). The goal is simple. By continuing to support a Capitalist regime, they will continue to make money. Unless pesky, peace loving folks interfere with the business of war. Unless politicians funnel billions into our education system instead of the M.I.C. (Military Industrial Complex). Unless new avenues of renewable energy are sought out rather than rapidly diminishing fossil fuels. We are basically playing Monopoly with a single $500, against the banks millions, and only people like Oprah & Jay-Z even get the $500 dollar bill. For the rest of us it's like the the $5 dollar bill. Sorry for the shitty, monopoly comparison, getting a little off track here... Long story short - were being brainwashed! THINGS ARE SIMPLE! Why do billions go towards military while schools and programs close up shop? Because the plan is to build great fighters, not an educated society. Why have I heard of water powered cars and permanent magnet motors for over ten years now (probably longer) and still our reliance on coal and oil is stronger than ever? Cause they ain't done milking every dollar they can out of the under-educated in general populace. If I give up on selling weed, I wouldn't do it while I was still sittin on a half-pound, would I? Once again, a simple answer..... HELL NO! Gonna stop now, enough of my input. I expect to hear O'Reilly call Lupe unpatriotic, or a terrorist himself no doubt, just for opposing a system that is AT IT'S CORE very corrupt. We will see the Switcheroo at it's finest, as a sound arguement will be scoffed at, ridiculed for it's RADICAL nature, and rebuked, USUALLY by a single proclamation uttered OVER & OVER, due to lack of having a real intelligent response. I can see Bill already. "YOU are the terrorist buddy, YOU! YOU! YOU! For your radical, terrorist ideals!" LMAO. This is just my opinion, of course, and I think Bill O'Reilly is a complete fuck-up, as well as an all-around, brown-nosing pundit, republican faggot, and I expect that his arguement towards Lupe will be about as sound as my biased description of his character. Way to go Lupe! I admire your courage, but undoubtably going on the O'reilly Factor is like having a debate with a thirteen year-old; convinced of their own superiority and advanced knowledge, they will never admit to being wrong or that your point may have some validity, and will resort to the same, tired rhetoric we've all heard from FOX news before.

    • jr_rider 23

      Actually if you look at how the US budget is getting broken up, the military is getting funded on the lower end. Where just about half of the budget is going is health care. Maybe some of that money should go to education instead so then people can get the education to get a good job and buy their own health care. Also it shouldn't be the governments job to aid the poor. We as a community should be doing that already. The government should be going over more important matters that churches, non profit organization, or just us in the community can't comprehend.

    Yes. This is going to be interesting. Only thing is that I know Lupe knows a lot a things that he could potentially smash O'Reilly on, but it seems that Lupe is all that good of a debater. He's like me, knowing a lot of things, but when it comes down to it, I'm much better at producing valid points in music and through writing. During interviews I think Lupe chokes up a bit and doesn't know what to say. Hope Lupe can embarrass O'Reilly on his own show though. He just has to have patience and not start screaming back once O'Reilly starts getting aggravated.

    Bill O'Reily is the biggest piece of shit, all he does is complain about other people and if they don't go on his show then he insults them. Jon Stewart killed him in a debate like scenario then they edit the show to make it seem like O'Reily is smarter than he really is. the ironic thing is that O'Reily brought Stewart on to complain saying that the Daily Show takes things out of context to make it seem like other people are dumb but then they edited O'Reily show to make him seem better (practice what you preach you ignorant fuck). As you can tell I have a lot of hatred towards Fox "News" but it's justified with their racist remarks, trying to scare American people so they get more viewers which means more money. On Fox "News" if they don't like then they'll attack you without trying to understand their thinking behind it, but then again they are some of the laziest journalists in the world.

  • Espi

    I'm curious to see how Lupe would do on the O'Reily Factor. I think he will get chewed up to be honest. I'm sure he would do better then Waka Flaka in a voting both, but dude is not a politician. Lupe has some balls to say that, but there's a better way to go about stating how you feel. Now his statement will forever negatively overshadow the positive things he is trying to do such as his book club and promoting a better education system in America. For Real Talk 100, I mean no disrespect but what's your point? The fact that the Grand Old Party Republicans were once a legitimately conservative, free enterprise loving, thought bearing concious of the future party? Or the fact that they are now attention loving, no fact bearing, capitalists without limits, using Jesus to promote their shit party? Things have changed my man.

      Let me start by saying I'm a huge fan of Lupe, but this cat is like Nas in this regard. He's too smart for his own good and can't keep his thoughts in order.

  • Real Talk 100

    Federal laws aimed at discrimination by government actors are expressly within Congress’s authority under the Fourteenth Amendment. The Democrats opposed these civil rights laws not because of any questions about Congress’s authority to enact them—they couldn’t care less about the Constitution—but because they wanted to keep discriminating. The 1964 Civil Rights Act was again supported overwhelmingly by Republicans and less so by Democrats. As with the 1957 and 1960 civil rights acts, it was Republicans who passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act by huge majorities, with a distinctly smaller majority of Democrats supporting it. In the Senate, for example, 82 percent of Republicans voted for the 1964 Civil Rights Act, compared with only 66 percent of Democrats. In the House, 80 percent of Republicans supported the ’64 bill, compared with only 63 percent of Democrats. The only reason Democratic majorities were beginning to support civil rights for blacks was that by 1964—thanks to Republican voting rights acts—more blacks were voting. Democrats couldn’t keep winning elections in some parts of the country by appealing to the racist mob. As Democratic senator Carter Glass of Virginia had explained years earlier, “Discrimination! Why that is exactly what we propose,” saying the Democrats sought to “remove every negro voter who can be gotten rid of, legally, without materially impairing the numerical strength of the white electorate.” The Democrats’ position on civil rights depended on where the votes were. Of course, there were some serious civil rights champions among Democrats in the twentieth century—we’ve been hearing endless panegyrics to them our entire lives. Once the Democrats got involved, civil rights became just another racket with another mob. Unlike previous civil rights laws, the 1964 Civil Rights Act included provisions aimed at purely private actors, raising the hackles of some constitutional purists, notably Barry Goldwater, the Republicans’ 1964 presidential nominee. Goldwater, like the rest of his party, had supported every single civil rights bill until the 1964 act. But he broke with the vast majority of his fellow Republicans to oppose the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Like many other conservatives opposed to a living, growing, breathing Constitution, Goldwater actually opposed only two of the seven major provisions of the bill—those regulating privately owned housing and public accommodations. But there were other provisions he would have made tougher. For example, Goldwater wanted to make it mandatory that federal funds be withheld from programs practicing discrimination, rather than discretionary, as President Kennedy had requested. Goldwater was a vehement foe of segregation. He was a founder of the NAACP in Arizona, donating the equivalent of several thousand dollars to the organization’s efforts to integrate the public schools. When he was head of the Arizona National Guard, he had integrated the state Guard before Harry Truman announced he was integrating the U.S. military. As the Washington Post said, Goldwater “ended racial segregation in his family department stores, and he was instrumental in ending it in Phoenix schools and restaurants and in the Arizona National Guard.” But he was also a believer in limited government. It was, after all, racist Democratic politicians in the South using the force of the government to violate private property rights by enforcing the Jim Crow laws in the first place. As Sowell points out, it wasn’t the private bus companies demanding that blacks sit in the back of the bus, it was the government.

    • Real Talk 100

      Richard Nixon implemented affirminative action. @NY no I do not remember all the racist Southern Democrats becoming Republicans, because that's a myth. Every segregationist who ever served in the Senate was a Democrat and remained a Democrat except one. Even Strom Thurmond—the only one who later became a Republican—remained a Democrat for eighteen years after running for president as a Dixiecrat. There’s a reason they were not called the “Dixiecans.” Democratic senators Ernest Hollings, Richard Russell, and Sam Ervin all voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act and all remained Democrats for the rest of their lives. Al Gore’s father, Albert Gore, voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act; both he and his son remained lifelong Democrats. J. William Fulbright voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act; he remained a Democrat and became the political mentor to Bill Clinton. Senator Robert “Sheets” Byrd voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act; he remained a senior statesman in the Democratic Party until his dying day. A curious sleight of hand is required to hide from the children the fact that all the segregationists in the Senate were Democrats. In history books, such as Robert A. Caro’s biography of Lyndon Johnson, the segregationists are not called “Democrats.” They’re called “Southerners.” Except it wasn’t just “Southerners” voting against civil rights. Not every senator who opposed black civil rights was a Southerner, but every one was a Democrat. In addition to the Southern Democrats who voted against putting the 1957 civil rights bill on the Senate calendar, for example, there were five Democrats from nowhere near the South: Democratic senator Wayne Morse of Oregon—a favorite target of Senator Joe McCarthy—Democratic senator Warren Magnuson of Washington, Democratic senator James Murray of Montana, Democratic senator Mike Mansfield of Montana, and Democratic senator Joseph O’Mahoney of Wyoming. According to Caro, the Western Democrats traded their votes on civil rights for a dam authorization on the Idaho-Oregon border. That’s how dear black civil rights were to liberals—they traded them away for a dam.

      Well I enjoy reading a little lesser-known history since I don't have time to look the shit up myself.

      Are you forgetting that those Democrats were southern democrats and after the Civil Rights Movement those people became republicans because they would rather see minorities oppressed then have benefits for themselves.

      Nice copy and paste homie. Too bad no one will read this since you fail at trying to educate people.

      Wow that was insightful. So your point is?

  • Real Talk 100

    "The Senate vote on the 1960 Civil Rights Act was 71–18. Once again, every single vote against a civil rights bill came from a Democrat, including legendary liberal, hero of Watergate, Sam Ervin.17 Representative George McGovern voted “present.” He would also be the Democrats’ candidate for president in 1972.18 The vote of the Tennessee delegation in the House was typical: The two Republicans from Tennessee voted for the 1960 civil rights bill, the six Democrats from the state voted against."

      Also the right for black people to vote republicans was down for it people dont understand that the republicans have made a impact in a lot of shit pertaining to slavery,rights to vote(Civil Rights) They re all the same tho just Politics WWE No different

  • Real Talk 100

    Exposing the lies that our socialist public school system has brainwashed us with: "It was Republicans who overwhelmingly introduced, promoted, and passed every civil rights act from the end of the Civil War right up to and including the 1964 Civil Rights Act. President Eisenhower pushed the Civil Rights Act of 1957, written by Attorney General Herbert Brownell, guaranteeing black voting rights, to be enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice. During the endless deliberation on Eisenhower’s civil rights bill, Senator Lyndon Johnson warned his fellow segregationist Democrats, “Be ready to take up the goddamned nigra bill again.” Senator Sam Ervin, another liberal luminary—instrumental in the destruction of anti-communist Republicans Joe McCarthy and Richard Nixon—told his fellow segregationists, “I’m on your side, not theirs,” and advised them to face up to the fact that “we’ve got to give the goddamned niggers something. Eisenhower implemented the 1948 executive order President Truman had issued—but then ignored—desegregating the military. Also unlike Truman, Eisenhower hired blacks for prominent positions in his administration, such as assistant secretary of Labor (J. Ernest Wilkens), chairman of the U.S. Board of Parole (Scovel Richardson), UN delegate from the United States (Charles Mahoney), administrative officer on White House staff (Fredrick Morrow), minister to Romania (Clifton R. Wharton), and members of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (George M. Johnson and J. Ernest Wilkens)."

    The only time I ever saw a rapper go on a political news show and get the best of the host was when Shyne ethered my man Bill Maher on "Politically Incorrect" about 10 years ago. Oh, and Rza had a respectable showing on some CNN show one time. It'd be nice to see Lupe go on there and rep though.

      @ Anan... : Thankgod there are others out there! _____________________________________ People need to realize there is no such thing as free will. Well actually they don't because we as a species need this current system... Everyone works for 5/7ths of their life (mon - fri). Does everyone enjoy work ? hope so because that is all there is to life... In the current system , WE ( ordinary people) are all consumers , we 'work'to buy food,clothes ,homes , other 'necessities' , with all profit being used to better the system and create further 'cash' which forms a paradox. Thus we exchange our 'work' for 'living'. Think about it , from the day you were born , you were programmed ; the television you watch, the books you read , the clothes you wear , the music you listen to, who you vote for - Its all been VERY carefully thought about to ensure you have a passion to work and continue to be a consumer . What happens to those who drift off this path ? Branded : bludgers, Bums ,Useless , Lazy and so forth ( think about the negative contention with these words , why is it so ?) If you are still reading and are pondering why ? then think about this: - According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. -The average American consumes about fifty-three times more goods and services than someone from China. -The United States contains 5 percent of the world's population but accounts for 22 percent of fossil fuel consumption, 24 percent of carbon dioxide emissions, and 33 percent of paper and plastic use. -A child born in the United States will create thirteen times as much ecological damage over the course of his or her lifetime than a child born in Brazil. What I am trying to get at is : WE LIVE IN A FINITE ENVIRONMENT. Yes there is sustainability but research the population increase over the past century and you will see why we need this system... The only way to end world hunger/poverty/war. Is to eliminate the need for resources. Though our current system is fucked ( we let innocent die , have war , and literally have an army of pawns) its better than the alternate. ________________________________________ Well thats the end of my rant for the day , as a wise man once said , "Its all good , Its all right. Fuck all day, Fuck all nite"

      The fact is Obama is a great speaker and makes it seem like he's only talking to you even though he's speaking to everyone. He also pushed for a lot of things in his presidential race but majority of those things didn't happen, the tax cuts for the rich which he said he would not renew but he did, some very questionable decisions with the war (said they would be out by now). Obama basically continued all of the policies of Bush which we already knew failed, if he didn't run on Change he wouldn't have been selected over Hillary Clinton but like every politician he lied, the democrats got nothing done when they had majority in the house, senate and had a democrat for president and to me that is the biggest problem they got arrogant and fucked up.

      Music is not news it's not meant to be taken literally, it's about creativity what ever you want to make.

    Here's what I don't get. How come everyone is hating on Lupe for merely stating his opinion. I also don't get why Bill O'Reilly is calling him a pinhead for not wanting to go on another show and clarify his opinions. I ALSO don't get why Bill O'Reilly even gives a fuck because I remember him slandering Obama and calling all sorts of things that correspond with the label "Terrorist". That would be the first time ever, as far as I know, that Bill O'Reilly would have someone come onto his show with a similar opinion to him.

      December 21, 1787 Federalist 25 Alexander Hamilton "If, to obviate this consequence, it should be resolved to extend the prohibition to the RAISING of armies in time of peace, the United States would then exhibit the most extraordinary spectacle which the world has yet seen, that of a nation incapacitated by its Constitution to prepare for defense, before it was actually invaded. As the ceremony of a formal denunciation of war has of late fallen into disuse, the presence of an enemy within our territories must be waited for, as the legal warrant to the government to begin its levies of men for the protection of the State. We must receive the blow, before we could even prepare to return it. All that kind of policy by which nations anticipate distant danger, and meet the gathering storm, must be abstained from, as contrary to the genuine maxims of a free government. We must expose our property and liberty to the mercy of foreign invaders, and invite them by our weakness to seize the naked and defenseless prey, because we are afraid that rulers, created by our choice, dependent on our will, might endanger that liberty, by an abuse of the means necessary to its preservation."

    • Yup

      I guess some of those suicide bombers need to be reprogrammed with a little Aristole philosophy then, huh?

  • Real Talk 100

    Also it is not the policy of the United States to attack civilians. If a school was bombed in Libya, I have not heard about it, but it was not purposeful. Also if you recall, the Americans are only supporting the French and the British in Libya. Also if you recall, it was the communist Quadafi who sent his military including air craft to machine gun protesters.

      Do you really expect anyone to listen to what you are saying if you believe that "Quadafi" is a Communist.

  • Interesting...

    I don't like o'Reily, but I do enjoy his debates with people from time to time (as long as he lets them speak). If this is true about Lupe turning down this shot at the show, then Lupe is as ignorant as those functioning illiterates that he had mentioned before. If your going to throw a heavy, heavy statement such as Obama being the biggest terrorist, then you better be ready to be held accountable for it by people...

  • Real Talk 100

    Lupe's pompous pampered ass like alot of yall, got no idea what real terrorism is. This is the REALITY that the rest of the world has to deal with: Real terrorism is a mother and her daughter shopping in the Iraqi market and getting killed by a suicide bomber. Real terrorism is going to a hotel or to your mosque or to your home and a gang of dudes comes through the back door with machine guns. Real terrorism is getting your head sawed off on camera for being journalist. Real terrorism is when your mayors, your judges, and your policemen are getting killed left and right (Mexico), your new army recruits in training get bombed (Pakistan), and your kids can't go to school because the Taliban laced it with barbwire and land mines (Afghanistan).

    • You are a dumb@ss

      Real terrorism is going to work at the World Trade Center then looking out the window to see a plane coming right at you. Killing you and thousands of innocent people. The fact is we wouldn't be in this mess if it wasn't for that. Talk to someone who can give you some real facts about how it is over there. I got plenty of friends and family over there who tell me how it really is and not this conspiracy ignorance that the rest of you talk about.

    • Real Talk 100

      your facts are off homie, most Muslims have been killed in Iraq by other Muslims. Did you forget the suicide bombers attacking the Shiite holy places, and the market places daily? Did you forget about Zarqawi and AQI? Sunni militias armed by Libya? Al Sadr and other Shiite militias armed by Iran? Militants from Syria? The reason you have less violence today versus a few years ago was because of the Sunni Awakening and the Shitte government turning against al Sadr. In the void left open by American incompetance and the void closed by General Patreaus troop surge 1) The Sunnis found out they did not like Al Queda style governance, and 2) they realized they'd rather have America as their big bro than Iran. And the (Shiite) Iraqi government realized it was screwed with a civil war and the Americans leaving so it had to stand up agasint the rise of al Sadr and the other Shiite militias.

    • dumb@ss

      Also, real terrorism is when your disabled children go to school only for it to be bombed by the US (Libya). Real terrorism is when children as young as 11 are handcuffed by US soldiers and shot dead in the middle of the streets. The fact is, you don't know what real terrorism is either. Of course Lupe is speaking out, he is a Muslim and the US have killed more than 1 million Muslims in the past 8 years over in Iraq.
