Australia, the Commonwealth of thieves, has handed Calvin Broadus the lemon:
Rapper Snoop Dogg [Calvin Broadus] has been banned from entering Australia after failing a character test, according to officials.
Australia has character tests? Countries still have character tests? We don't. We threw them out with Bill Clinton. It happened in the '92 presidential election cycle when George Bush Sr. timidly questioned Bill Clinton's character. The Clinton camp responded, much like a rapper would, that being President is about the economy, STUPID! And you wonder why the libs still ferociously beat the drum daily about the stupidity of Bush the younger. They have to. This collective tossing out of character by us has allowed pond scum like Snoop Dogg to flourish plus make millions for himself and lots of other already rich people. Meanwhile, Elvis would croon, if he hadn't offed himself with his own decadent lifestyle:
On a cold and gray chicago mornin
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
Its another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto
People, dont you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way...
We have turned our heads and we are to blind to see. But we are not blind enough to not see Mrs. Clinton and Barak Obama falling over each other trying to prove how black they are. We are not too blind to see how they are behaving like street addicts. Street addicts say anything and will do anything to get the drug. Mrs. Clinton and Obama will say anything and do anything to get the White House. Imagine, street addicts are vying to be leaders of the Free World. You don't have to imagine it, you are witnessing it.
Yesterday, Peggy Noonan made a very good point in her column on how we are scaring our children:
For 50 years in America, whenever the subject has turned to what our culture presents, the bright response has been, "You don't like it? Change the channel." But there is no other channel to change to, no safe place to click to. Our culture is national. The terrorizing of children is all over.
Click. Smug and menacing rappers.
Click. "This is Bauer. He's got a nuke and he's going to take out Los Angeles."
Click. Rosie grabs her crotch. "Eat this."
Click. "Every day 2,000 children are reported missing . . ."
Click. Don Imus's face.
Click. "Eyewitnesses say the shooter then lined the students up . . ."
Click. An antismoking campaign on local New York television. A man growls out how he felt when they found his cancer. He removes a bib and shows us the rough red hole in his throat. He holds a microphone to it to deliver his message.
Don't smoke, he says.
This is what TV will be like in Purgatory.
It's not only roughness and frightening things in our mass media, it's politics too. Daily alarms on global warming with constant videotape of glaciers melting and crashing into the sea. Anchors constantly asking, "Is there still time to save the Earth? Scientists warn we must move now." And international terrorism. "Is the Port of Newark safe, or a potential landing point for deadly biological weapons?"...
...We are not giving the children of our country a stable platform. We are instead giving them a soul-shaking sense that life is unsafe, incoherent, full of random dread. And we are doing this, I think, for three reasons.
One is politics--our political views, our cultural views, so need to be expressed and are, God knows, so much more important than the peace of a child. Another is money--there's money in the sickness that is sold to us. Everyone who works at a TV network knew ratings would go up when the Cho tapes broke.
But another reason is that, for all our protestations about how sensitive we are, how interested in justice, how interested in the children, we are not. We are interested in politics. We are interested in money. We are interested in ourselves.
We are frightening our children to death, and I'll tell you what makes me angriest. I am not sure the makers of our culture fully notice what they are doing, what impact their work is having, because the makers of our culture are affluent. Affluence buys protection. You can afford to make your children safe. You can afford the constant vigilance needed to protect your children from the culture you produce, from the magazine and the TV and the CD and the radio. You can afford the doctors and tutors and nannies and mannies and therapists, the people who put off the TV and the Internet and offer conversation.
If you have money in America, you can hire people who compose the human chrysalis that protect the butterflies of the upper classes as they grow. The lacking, the poor, the working and middle class--they have no protection. Their kids are on their own. And they're scared.
Too bad no one cares in this big sensitive country of ours.
I would just add that in the ghetto, the majority of the children are fatherless. The children there have been looking to pond scum like Sean Puffy Combs and Snoop Dogg as their fathers. And it's getting them killed. Or even worse:
Admittedly, Snoop and some of his peers have called women "b----es" and "ho's" in their lyrics, but as the Dogg put it Tuesday afternoon (April 10), there is no parallel to what Imus said.
"It's a completely different scenario," said Snoop, barking over the phone from a hotel room in L.A. "[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We're talking about ho's that's in the 'hood that ain't doing sh--, that's trying to get a n---a for his money. These are two separate things. First of all, we ain't no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC [which announced Wednesday it would drop its simulcast of Imus' radio show] going hard on black girls. We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them mutha----as say we in the same league as him."...
At the time of this interview, Snoop's arraignment on felony charges (possession of a firearm and sale or transportation of marijuana) was looming, but on Wednesday afternoon (April 11), he pleaded no contest to the charges and was sentenced to five years' probation and 800 hours of community service; a three-year prison sentence was suspended. "Snoop accepts full responsibility for these matters," his attorney, Donald Etra, said in a statement. "He understands that, while he has every reason to seek security and protection, he cannot have a gun in his own vehicle, and he must only employ licensed security personnel. By the same token, although Snoop possesses a medical marijuana certificate, he recognizes, he cannot possess more marijuana than permitted by that law." The charges stem from Snoop's October arrest at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California (see "Snoop Dogg Arrested For Drug, Gun Possession At Airport").
Amid all this, he's promoting a new album as well: a compilation called Snoop Dogg Presents: The Big Squeeze that is geared toward giving some shine to upcoming artists as well as seasoned vets. It's due April 24 on Koch.
"I produced the whole album," the Dogg explained. "I'm trying to give some light to these West Coast artists out here. Some of them are rivals, so I brought them all together so they could move forward. I call it The Big Squeeze because I'm finnin' to squeeze the game by the neck. It's a parade of the artists that I felt was my starters. As opposed to grabbing everybody from the West Coast, I grabbed the ones I thought were best at the time.
"We'll be dropping The [Big] Squeeze 2 in like three months just to make sure it's more and more talent that's coming," he added. "As opposed to calling in Pharrell and Timbaland and Scott Storch, all my high-powered friends, I said, 'Let me do it on my own and show them that if I'm willing to make the sacrifice, maybe they will too.' ... I just wanted to give them a shot. Do a record with them, people know they official ... then they got me whenever they need me. If they wanna do a [record] deal with me, then come on. If not, then they on their own. I'm not trying to lock anybody down."
You may even get to see some of these artists on the stage with Snoop soon. He and Diddy are bringing their tour to the U.S. after a run of several weeks across the world (see "Snoop Dogg Barred From Entering U.K., Cancels Dates With Diddy"). The West Coast King is also focusing on an adults-only cartoon movie to accompany his album Tha Blue Carpet Treatment.
Snoop Dogg does not care about the folks who buy his album. They have embraced him and his deadly ethos. Yet, his contempt for them is the worse on record. Like a true ganster, Snoop cares only about himself. Now, his audience will be lining up to buy tickets for his and Sean Puffy P.Diddy Combs' concert tour this summer. England and now Australia have banned Snoop. The concerts have been canceled. Do we have the courage, for the sake of the children, to cancel him here? If not, could we just suggest that no responsible parent would let their children go to one of these concerts?
Oh, but if you do that, you might not be invited to the parties in Southampton...
Someone, somewhere, please ask the street addicts, Mrs. Clinton and Barak Obama their opinions about this. While you're at it, ask the Archbishop of St. Louis his opinion too. It will do us all a world of good, plus help the children.
