The Name Probably Should Have Been a Clue....

A rapper named Lupe (Loopy) Fiasco (yep) decided to spice things up at one of the Obama inaugurals:

Although Fiasco was booked as the headliner for the StartUp RockOn concert in celebration of Obama's reelection, the 30-year-old Chicago rapper apparently had no plans to cheer the current administration. Instead, after taking the stage at The Hamilton in Washington, he reportedly announced that he didn't vote for the president in the 2012 election and spent more than 30 minutes performing an anti-war song.
More details on his "performance" here:

"At the Obama inauguration party Lupe Fiasco opened his set with his 2011 single “Words I never Said,” in which he criticizes Obama for the president’s silence after the bombing of the Gaza strip. He rapped the song over and over again for more than 20 minutes. “Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn is a racist, Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say s---,” he continually rhymed.
The rapper also criticizes the War on Terror and questions the Sept. 11 attacks in the song, asking “9/11, building seven, did they really pull it?”
I suspect that his trutherism and his comments on Limbaugh and Beck didn't get him booted offstage, but his criticism of Obama did.  And although I am not a huge fan of the President, I think the song was inappropriate for the time and place.  And apparently, the knucklehead just kept repeating that over and over again:
"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."

Hmm, given the rather icy relationship between Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu, I'm not sure what the president "saying shit" would have accomplished with regard to Gaza.

But it doesn't appear that we're dealing with the brightest light in the harbor here.

Why don't you try "debunking" some 9/11-related evidence, Pat? It's amusing to watch, torch-boy.

Cowardly is obviously bored. Is Pat not posting enough for you to rage over? Hey, again, do you believe the planes had pods on them?

I guess Cowardly is, ironically, too cowardly to answer any questions.

You mean questions like "what's the source of your BS that cutting torches made all of the melted iron in the dust"? He's been dodging that one for years.

Cowardly indeed. No irony at all.

Critical thinkers know Pat never even made that statement.

And you know this how? When did you become an expert on all the things Pat never said?

"The iron microspheres reported in the RJ Lee report could easily have been caused by the steelworkers using acetylene torches on the steel during the rescue operation." -Pat Curley, "researcher".

"The source of the iron microspheres was cutting torches at the cleanup site. That's a fully documented and proven fact." -RGT, wannabe troll.

Pat never said that. Why are you unable to source your claims? Is it stupidity or laziness?
