Fail Occurred: 6/8/2011
Lupe Fiasco is the type of person who thinks they're very smart, sorta like that girl who took Psych 101 and thought she has you all figured out. In an interview with the CBS-affiliated web show "What's Trending" this past June, Lupe said, "In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America."
Simplifying U.S. foreign policy to a simple land-grab for blood and oil, Fiasco seemed to forget about all the humanitarian relief efforts, investment, and development and basically all the good this country provides worldwide. It wasn't that he didn't have a point to make, it was just that his sensationalizing his stance made it less nuanced. He went on to say that, as a rule, he doesn't vote. Also, that he "doesn't get involved in politics." Thanks for your thoughts.
