..... a 2004 protest song in which PSY joins others in protesting American policies in Korea and Iraq. According to sources including the Washington Post and New York Magazine (http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/12/psy-kill-american-soldiers-rap.html?mid=facebook_nymag), the rap translates to:

Kill those (expletive) Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives
Kill those (expletive) Yankees who ordered them to torture
Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers
Kill them all slowly and painfully
Now my skills in Korean rap are non-existent, but running the original Korean text through several online translators do consistently bring up Yankees (spelled Yang Ke) and the “killing slowly and painfully” part comes through pretty clear.

Just the kind of words dear leader loves to hear!

Hmmm. I'm no longer a fan. Well, never really was, it's just the 2012 macarena.

Now I'm pretty sure I hate this POS that would be living in a totalitarian crap hole if not for the blood and sweat of Americans for over 50 years.

Send his arse to NK.

Of course the president will still be seen with him, and may even ask him to perform that song.

To perform for White House Occupants?

My first response was 'What, the MAO Glee Club was busy?"

So he hates what happened at Gitmo, big deal. I'm sure lots of Americans would be mad too. He's not the first to say he wants to kill americans, he won't be the last. There are tons of American rappers saying they want to kill americans. Don't see you getting up in arms about them, because you don't hear about it, because you don't listen to rap and it doesn't get on the news.

His chicken**** response was basically that everyone else was doing it...........

"...... The song – from eight years ago – was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time............

****tard.

I kind of get a kick out of the "hate waterboarding, love bombing Libya in 2011" crowd.

You're not too bright, are you? How can one be upset about something they aren't aware of? Can't you see a problem with your complaint?

So go ahead and list some rappers names and the lyrics, and I'll try to be torqued off about that too if it'll make you feel better. :upeyes:

The very second of the first day I need to get my news from a rapper, I'm getting to the top of a very high building & jumping!

Whats worse, singing about killing people or actually doing it?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/dec/08/psy-lyrics-anti-us-anger

From the article:

Whatever else one wants to say, the US is a country that, for more than a decade, has loudly and continuously declared itself to be a "nation at war". It's not "at war" in any one county, but in many countries around the globe.





In the last four years alone, it has used drones to end people's lives in six predominantly Muslim country (http://www.businessinsider.com/us-launches-drone-strikes-in-sixth-muslim-country-2011-6) (probably more (http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/03/20123574732969894.html)). Under its Nobel Peace Prize-winning leader, it has repeatedly wiped out entire families (including just this week (http://www.pajhwok.com/en/2012/12/05/5-family-members-killed-nuristan-airstrike)), slaughtered dozens of children at a time (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/yemen/7806882/US-cluster-bombs-killed-35-women-and-children.html), targeted and killed people rescuing and grieving its victims (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/aug/20/us-drones-strikes-target-rescuers-pakistan), and either deliberately (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2133282/The-boy-sitting-photos-protesting-deadly-US-drone-strikes--Three-days-later-killed--US-drone-says-Jemima-Khan.html) or recklessly (http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-10-22/world/35277515_1_awlaki-military-airstrike-al-qaeda-affiliate) dropped bombs on teenagers (including its own citizens), then justified it with the most foul and morally deranged rationale (http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/10/how-team-obama-justifies-the-killing-of-a-16-year-old-american/264028/).




It embraces and props up (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/01/10/readout-presidents-meeting-saudi-foreign-minister-prince-saud-al-faisal) the world's most repressive tyrants (http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2012/0514/US-resumes-arms-sales-to-Bahrain.-Activists-feel-abandoned). It isolates itself from the world and embraces blatant double standards in order to enable the worst behavior of its client states (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/dec/04/israel-nukes-palestine-un-vote-rogue). It continues to maintain a global network of prisons where people are kept indefinitely in cages with no charges. It exempts itself and its leaders (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/aug/31/obama-justice-department-immunity-bush-cia-torturer) from the international institutions of justice while demanding that the leaders of other, less powerful states be punished there (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2010/12/15/statement-president-obama-international-criminal-court-announcement). And it is currently in the process of suffocating a nation of 75 million people (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/oct/07/iran-santions-suffering) with an increasingly sadistic sanctions regime, while proudly boasting about it and threatening more.





It spent years imprisoning even Muslim journalists with no charges (http://www.salon.com/2009/05/11/journalists_6/). And then there's that little fact about how, less than a decade ago, it created a worldwide torture regime and then launched an aggressive war that destroyed a nation of 26 million people, one that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent human beings.

From the article:
Being the world's only superpower, it's a mutha sometimes. It's lonely at the top. :supergrin:

Of course I kid. I only wanted to ask you why you don't think we hear a peep anymore from the peace-loving left? They were rabid up until 2008, then dropped off the radar. Seems they have no problem when it's their people doing it. So weird.

Hanging chads, it wasn't the war, it was anger over a loss in a close race.

When a dem does it, the code pink crowds are noticeably smaller.

Guys, the average *American* rapper sings about killing cops, raping women and shooting "whitey" and most of their audience doesn't bat an eye. Trust me; PSY won't have any appreciable backlash with his base.
