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.
