Sean Hannity Disses "Controversial Rapper" Common, Karl Rove Says Common's a "Thug"

Common sure doesn't look like a thug.
Fox News' Sean Hannity dedicated 10-minutes of his program last night to shit on Common, and criticize Michelle Obama for inviting the "controversial rapper and poet" to her White House Poetry Night.

In typical "fair and balanced" fashion, Hannity even invited two black guys to discuss the "running list of controversial comments" Common's made over the years. Unfortunately, as Rap Radar points out, one of the dudes played the "Uncle Tom" role and "threw Common under the bus." And when Bucknell University Professor James Peterson chimed in with anything, Hannity and David Webb quickly countered with bullshit rebuttals about how fucked-up the White House is for inviting a dude that uses the "the N word" into "the people's house, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue."

To prove what a threat Common is to America, Fox played a clip of the rapper performing at Reverend Jeremiah Wright's Trinity Church in 2007. As y'all remember, the Obamas were Trinity Church parishioners until the president had to sever ties with Wright for making comments "like an old uncle who says things (you) don't always agree with."

The two-part segment, dubbed "The Invitation," also included a visit from "the architect," Karl Rove. Fox's foremost expert on hip hop repeatedly called Common a "thug," and also added that the invitation "speaks volumes about President Obama and this White House staff."

Hmm, if White House guests speak volumes about a president, then explain why an alleged child molester was invited to Ronald Reagan's White House in 1984.

Check out clips from last night's episode of The Sean Hannity Show, and try to not vomit on your keyboard.

FOR WORTH, TEXAS- The president of the Fort Worth Chapter of the SouthernChristian Leadership Conference (SCLC) is demanding an apology from former WhiteHouse aide Carl Rove or he will call on people of good will to boycott the FoxChannel.

"For too long, people like Mr. Rove have used this kind of hate speech tobelittled our young black men and have gotten away with it. Not any longer. Weare fighting back." say the Rev. Kyev Tatum, who is also Pastor of theFriendship Rock Baptist Church.

"Stop calling our children Thugs. We demand an apology," Rev. Tatum said. "Weare concerned with the hostile hateful discourse towards the African-Americancommunity in general and especially our Black Men."

"We condemn Mr. Rove's statements on Fox News and he should stop the madnessimmediately before he ignites another race war in America. It is not healthy forrace relations in the 21st Century. His brand of sensational political racist is no longer acceptable in America." says Rev. Tatum.

Many Civil Rights leaders believe using the word "thug" is the new code word inthe 21st Century to degrade the black community.

"You have gone from calling us niggers to calling us Thugs. Enough isenough."

I've always thought of him as borderline white. And if the last 15 years have taught us anything, it's do the opposite as Karl Rove says.

common is one of the best emcee's of our time, a truly conscious artist that works for the greater good. if they'd ever listened to even a single one of his songs they'd know that.

at any rate, maybe he'll sell a few new albums. fuck these assholes.
