KRS-One, truth seeker

Who else is psyched that KRS-One is apparently now receiving talking points from Alex Jones? A week or so ago, he was interviewed on Alex Jones’ radio show, and the other day, a video surfaced in which he led a crowd in a chant of, “9/11 was an inside job,” and then afterwards he gave an interview in which he dropped more knowledge than any rapper has ever dropped in an interview. Which is not saying a whole lot, but still.

Could there be a conspiracy theory-laded KRS-One album on the horizon? We can only hope.

I’m not even a troofer myself. I’m not saying I know for a fact that Bush and Cheney didn’t do it, or that I can prove scientifically that a building with a burning plane in it should collapse all of a sudden as if it was one of those planned building explosions. But I do tend to agree with Matt Taibbi that saying Bush did it kinda lets him off the hook for letting it happen in the first place. It makes him seem much more capable than he actually is.

Which I know has been an issue in the news this week, with Cheney giving that interview to Politico, talking about how he deserves credit for preventing any terror attacks here since 9/11, as if al Qaeda actually tried some shit, and he foiled it, and about how – now that Gitmo’s supposedly gonna be closing – someone’s gonna sneak a nuke into the country and blow us all up. Fortunately, I’m pretty sure he was just talking out of his ass. Er, I hope he was!

But if KRS-One wants to believe that 9/11 was an inside job, then so be it. Far be it for me to try to tell him what to think. I can’t even claim that I wouldn’t be chanting right along with the crowd, if I was at a show like that. I find that shit funny. That video looked like it might have been the best rap concert evar, and I’ve heard KRS-One shows are the best anyway. I wouldn’t know, since I’ve never seen one. I don’t he think he’s in Missouri very often, but I might have to put forth extra effort to catch him live, before he goes back to coming up with convoluted, asinine new definitions of the word hip-hop or whatever.

Another statement in this clip I couldn’t get behind was the part where says he voted for Obama, but only so he could have the right to criticize. First of all, I’m not sure where people got this idea that if you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to criticize, but it’s fucking bullshit. I didn’t vote in the 2000 election, even though I was 19, and I’ve been criticizing George W. Bush ever since. And if you don’t like it, you can suck my dick. Nhjic.

Also, I’m not sure if I’m buying that that’s the reason he voted for Obama. Watching the video, you can tell it’s not normally his m.o. to pull a lever. No Boutros. When someone mentioned something to him about voting, he started to say, “Of course not,” since he probably hardly ever votes. But then he had to catch himself, since he did vote in this election. And then he had to cop a plea, since he probably felt guilty about having voted for Obama, when he’d just gotten done bashing the guy from the stage.

My guess it that he might have let his wife talk him into it. The other day, Combat Jack had a post up about how in the hell KRS-One ever ended up marrying Miss Melodie, and it seemed rather obvious to me: The guy’s fucking huge, ugly, and crazy as shit. He’s famous (amongst old people), and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s got a lot of money, but I doubt women are really feeling KRS-One like that. (If any girls are reading this, feel free to chime in.) I bet the crowds at his shows are mostly chubby white guys who look like they used to be big fans of Wu-Tang.

But I digress.

Otherwise, I thought everything he had to say re: Obama was on point. People are playing themselves, if they think he didn’t come from the same Bilderberg Conference as everyone else who’s ever been president. Except for maybe John Kennedy, and you saw what happened to him. These next four years could be even worse than the last eight years, if only for the fact that everyone’s so convinced that Obama is Jesus. As if! At least someone’s got the balls to point out that he isn’t.

    As an Obama supporter, I can honestly say that he’s not going to be perfect and he will make mistakes. Anyone that doesn’t realize that is doing more harm than good. Turning a blind eye to a guy that you support is the same thing as what the people we criticize over at Fox News have done for the past 8 years.

  • these posts are racist

    Obama’s foreign policy team is the same team that has controlled foreign policy for decades. Nothing will change in the middle east and hence the same problems we’ve seen will continue and worsen as it is impossible to expect people to live forever under oppression, tyranny and imperialism.

    And for us average folks in the US, if you think you’re life will imporve, think again…the same corporate entities and lobby groups are still running the show. Obama sold his soul to become president. He had to.

    That’s a fuck up post your drinking that right wing cool aid, I agree with a lot with the bast master but I disagree with the both of you give Obama a chance and if the new world order means black people first I’m 100 with that it’s been along time coming let this be a lesson to you see what happen when you didn’t vote and you see what happen when you do vote. Large voter turn out 95 % of blacks vote for Obama and we won that means the system works if you use it so keep hope alive don’t be a hater. Don’t let these white people fool you or scare you can be scare all day it not going to change whats going to happen or note happen why should we be scared where all going to die anyway so live your life ! All this talk about being safe being a black man from the inner city you aint safe as soon as you walk out your door some us aint safe in our on homes so fuck being scared it don’t get you know where being round put into camps separated from you family taken from your homeland force to bow or be kill we already been threw that realty not prophecy we have live and survived the apocalypse so live you life and know you have the power to make change .

    Must you digress in every fucking post, Bol? Don’t think that anyone hasn’t noticed…

    So KRS gets your props because he’s open to criticize Obama? Nigga, I reserve the right to criticize whether I’ve got stake in the claim or not. I mean, if you elected the nigga and he does a shitty job, then hate on him, mang. And if you didn’t vote for his ass and he does a shitty job, then, shit, you can still hate on him. A shitty job-doer deserves to get shat on no matter what…and that’s some real shit right there. I’m not shitting on my black brothers, but a lot of niggaz look at Obama like he’s Christ on Earth, here to save us all or some shit. He might do some things alright, but in the end, it’ll be a bitter pill to swallow if dude shits on my fellow countryman just to appease some White dudes or some Jewish niggaz. Everybody needs to get real–the Office of The President revolves around the same corporate-ladder tactics as any large business–dudes will do anything/say anything/kiss any ass to get that corner office, then once they’re there, they’ll do what needs to be done to ensure that they stay–this ain’t post WW1 Germany, so I don’t see Obama killing all the Right-Wing Republican Niggaz in opposition, so he’s better off just being chill and making nice so he can enjoy his comfy seat.

    The ill part of it is even he is telling heads everyday that they gotta put in that work too.

    He repeatedly states: “Now I can’t do this alone…”

    What I realize alot is the media having a hard time calling him President.

    All that other masonic stuff, I can’t co-sign. I don’t know if it’s fact or not.

    “I bet the crowds at his shows are mostly chubby white guys who look like they used to be big fans of Wu-Tang.”

    I resent that statement. Not because it’s false, I’ve just never been to a KRS-One Show.

    I’ve never bought into the theory that the Bush administration was behind 9/11, mostly because I don’t think anyone in his cabinet could find they’re dick with both hands in a hall of mirrors.

    I have no problem believing that before those Towers had even collapsed someone got the bright idea that this would set up the perfect scenario to carry out the number one agenda of the administration — If memory serves correctly,(according to Bob Woodward’s book “Plan Of Attack”) Bush said in the summer of 2000 the primary focus, or rather the #1 goal of his first term would be to remove Sadaam Hussein from power.

    I’ve said for years that Colin Powell’s briefing to the U.N. was what got the rest of us to think he(Sadaam) actually had weapons even though we didn’t see a correlation between Iraq and 9/11.
    They managed to get the one person in the whole administration we would take at face value to present the situation to us.

    Funny how Powell didn’t want anything to do with Bush’s second term. I think it’s safe to say he basically ended his entire political career by carrying the water for his Commander in Chief. Jus’ a good soldier following orders, huh…

    First off Bol needs to stay off politics. Because his comedy isn’t strong enough to carry it i.e. he is no Steve Colbert or John Stuart. Stick to making fun of these rap clowns and the occasional pron reference and you’ll be good. All this conspiracy talk does nobody any good. OK let’s say all of this was a set up for the big scary new world order wooooo. What is the average citizen going to do? The citizens of the U.S. are conditioned wage slaves trained to mindlessly consume. That is why revolution is largely a pipe dream were you remove one tyrant and replace him with another. If you want to exact any change in your life or community get invovled and get educated. But pointing out grandous schemes of world domination (COOOBRAAAA sorry don’t know where that came from) is just a waist of time unless you plan a covert attack on the tri-lateral council (Grab your tin foil hat folks).

    And all you clowns attacking Obama before he gets a chance to breathe are just as bad as the worse part of the media outlets. No Obama will not fix all of the world problems, If he can get anything done with that jimmy rigged congress. No he is not going to be able to save the working poor from the trap they have been brain washed in. Because like it or not responsibilty starts with an individual to recognize your condition and fight with every fiber of your being to over come and don’t tell me it can’t be done, my ancestors over come and survived some of the worst attrocities to get us this far. Now what are we to do to move forward?

    KRS is right. Just watch. Obama answers to higher authorities the elite secret societies that run the world. Its going down trust that. He may cure alot of America’s ills momentarily but in the long run years down the line. We are really in for a big CHANGE. 2012.
