    Rapper Lupe Fiasco was thrown offstage and escorted off the premises of a Washington, D.C. concert hall during a pre-inauguration concert Sunday night, after going on an anti-war, anti-Obama rant, according to concertgoers.

    Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted late Sunday, “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.”

    “So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama,” he continued, ”and eventually was told to move on to the next song…Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”

    Another attendee at the StartUp RockOn event tweeted, “Things going terribly wrong at @lupefiasco performance during#SURO. Kicked off stage, bashing obama…”

    This isn’t the first time the rapper, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has been vocal about his dislike for the president.

    During an interview with CBS in 2011, he called the president a terrorist. Lupe said, “My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s actually causing the other forms of terrorism.”

    “You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

    Lupe has also criticized Obama’s stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has stated that he does not vote in elections because of his anti-establishment views.

    StartUp Rock On, the concert’s organizers, claimed shortly after 2:00 a.m. Monday that Lupe “left the stage earlier than we had planned. But Lupe Fiasco was not ‘kicked off stage’ for an ‘anti-Obama rant.’”

    “We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech,” the organizers said. “This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.”

    LOL! Can't wait to see how this is discussed at the DUmp.

    Definitely gonna have to watch how they reply lest they get banned.

    They're all anti-war/soldier over there. But this idiot is blaming Obama not Bu$hitler.

    Their loyalties are gonna be torn.

    It will come as no surprise to anyone that I had never heard of Loopy.

    But just reading the article makes me believe Loopy is anti-everything, including anti-American. He doesn't like anything about America and will only like it when it is run his way. It is not known where he got the idea that he has all the answers since he never went to college, but he assures us that he is "very intelligent".

    But this is America. In America a rapper with a high school education is allowed to speak his mind every bit as much as The President. Hard to tell who has the best mind, though, Loopy or Barry. It's also hard to tell how he got invited, but I hope he got a good look around since he won't be back.

    I don't like his politics, but this video is actually pretty good. I suspect our young "ghetto type" is actually a suburbanite.

    It'll be interesting to see what the MSM has to say about this...or if they just pretend it never happened despite all the evidence to the contrary.

    On one hand he's a poster child for the left...anti-war and pretty much anti-America (except for the $$$ that buys his records).

    On the other hand he just trashed the Patron Saint of the left in front of thousands of people for almost 30 minutes.

    Then there's the whole race issue.

    Would have been easier for them to talk about and report on if it had been Pat Green or Hank Williams, Jr.

    Obviously not the people who planned the event. Must be the same people who picked the original preacher for the inauguration.
