This man has never been politically correct…
…and now was not the time to start.
The proverbial line in the sand has been drawn. Detroit native and hip-hop mogul Eminem made that blatantly obvious in regards to President Donald Trump and any of his Trump-supporting fans during a four-and-a-half minute freestyle at the 2017 BET Awards on Tuesday night.
“You’re either for us, or against us.”
Brace yourselves, this one gets ugly.
After appearing on the song, “No Favors,” with fellow Detroiter Big Sean on his 2017 album, I Decided, it was obvious the 8-Mile star was no fan of this administration:
“And fuck Ann Coulter with a Klan poster. With a lamp post, door handle, shutter. A damn bolt cutter, a sandal, a can opener, a candle, rubber. Piano, a flannel, sucker, some hand soap, butter. A banjo and manhole cover…ran over the tramp with the Land Rover. The band, the Lambo, Hummer, and Road Runner…gotta make an example of her,”
Eminem not exactly mincing words there, as he never has.
He also added, “That’s for Sandra Bland…and Philando,” referring to two incidents of suspected race-related deaths. Sandra Bland was found hanged in a Texas jail cell in 2015 three days after being arrested for failing to use her turn signal. Philando Castile was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Minnesota when the officer overreacted to Castile’s legally owned firearm.
It was those types of incidents, with no to little action or response from government officials, that sparked NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick to kneel during the national anthem. An issue that this administration continues to address and one Eminem would address in his Tuesday night cypher that would make his feelings known crystal-clear.
“Now if you’re a black athlete, you’re a spoiled little brat trying to use your platform or your stature, to try to give those a voice who don’t have one, he [Trump] says you’re spitting in the face of vets who fought for us you bastards.”
But as we’ve come to learn with this administration, the White House is constantly contradicting themselves. Eminem wouldn’t let Trump’s hypocrisy go unnoticed.
“Unless you’re a P.O.W. Who’s tortured and battered cause to him your as zero cause he don’t like his war heroes captured…………But that’s not disrespecting the military.”
This was of course referencing Trump’s attack against Sen. (R-AZ) John McCain, when, in July 2015 as the presidential race was heating up, Trump told Politico, “He’s [McCain] not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
McCain, former Navy pilot, spent five-and-a-half years as a prisoner at “Hanoi Hilton,” a notorious torture prison in North Vietnam. Two of those years were spent in solitary confinement, according to Politico.
But, as Eminem so pointedly rhymes, and is so clear to many more, is most of what Trump does is just a distraction taking away from the real issues plaguing the nation.
“But this is his form of distraction. Plus he gets an enormous reaction, when he attacks the NFL so we focus on that, instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform from Nevada. All these horrible tragedies, and he’s bored, rather cause a Twitterstorm with the Packers.”
Therefore, Eminem officially declared it not possible to simultaneously be a fan of the legendary artist and a Trump supporter. For those people contemplating the decision, Eminem, once again mincing no words, says, “Fuck you.”
“And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his , I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against. And if you can’t decide who you like more and you’re split on who you should stand beside, I’ll do it for you with this. FUCK YOU. The rest of America stand up, we love our military, and we love our country. But WE FUCKING HATE TRUMP!”
His reasons are simple, as are many who oppose the president, and include the endorsement of alt-right champion Steve Bannon and support for “the Klansmen.” Eminem also let’s us know what his plans are if the wall on the southern border ever becomes reality.
