Lupe has faced a number of criticism for blasting Obama and the latest to do so has been Bill O’ Reilly (who’s no stranger to rappers). During a taping of The O’Reilly Factor here’s the transcript of what O’Reilly said:
Pinheads & Patriots
You may remember the name Lupe Fiasco. I wish I had that name. He is a Chicago rapper who often says outrageous things like this:
LUPE FIASCO, RAPPER: “My fight against terrorism, to me the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America, you know.”
“So for me it’s like I’m trying to fight the terrorism that is actually causing the other forms of terrorism, you know. The root causes of the terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”Mr. Fiasco has been invited on “The Factor” but has declined, possibly because he could not possibly defend that remark, which makes him a pinhead. Now the reason I say I wish I was named Lupe Fiasco, wouldn’t it be great, “The Fiasco Factor”? I mean, it would be tremendous.
