Bill O'Reilly calls Lupe Fiasco a Pinhead


FOX News head of clowns Bill O'Reilly talked about Lupe on his show yesterday, while I didn't find a video of it yet, here's a transcript of what was 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.

UPDATE - Lupe responds via Twitter:

Whoa! I got invited to the O'reilly factor and turned it down??? Thats news to me...would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!

    Billy O loves calling folks Pinheads I remember when he called 50cent a pinhead when Obama was running for President and 50 said people would always be trying to kill Obama because he is African American.

  2. ...no, he shouldn't have gone on. He doesn't even like the station. Why even do that?

    No one cares about O'Reilly anymore.

  3. what a retardedly stupid statement. no one cares? oreily's ratings are pretty fuckin high...just cuz YOU don't care doesn't mean noone does. Jon Stewart went on the show and debated OReily...know why? Cuz he's smart and can actually argue.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I think Lu feels like that Debate might end up with O'Reilly in a choke hold.

    ReplyDelete
  5. O'Reilly is wrong on calling Lu a Pinhead, but he's right in the fact that Lu can't defend himself in claiming Obama to be a terrorist. Nor can anyone one of you guys that agree with him.

  6. They just to oppress his free speech by sullying his image. I agree with his decision not to go on.

  7. When your giving $30 billion+ to support Israel's war on Palestine while cutting homeland teachers from schools because there isn't enough money, YOU'RE A FUCKING TERRORIST. When your policy keeps minimum wage at 31 cent an hour to keep companies like Levi's and Hanes profit's high,YOU'RE A FUCKING TERRORIST!!

    Also, he is in full support of the war!
    Think of it this way, you have total control over a robot that is armed to the teeth... you see your robot killing others and you decided that youre not gonna do anything about it, well then, YOU ARE A FUCKING TERRORIST!!

    Lupe knows this. O'Reilly is just out to justify evils, not fight them.

  9. John Stewart can defeat bill o Reilly on his own show but I guess Lu can't. Cuz he offers vague examples very ambiguous while stewart can use actual dates names and events as examples I'm sorry but Lu ain't as smart as some of u think he is

  10. We all, as Lupe fans, need to show our support some how, and shut Bill O'Pinhead up for once. He has already helped us by making a mockery of himself when trying to defend his views on Common reciting poems at the White House, and trying to argue with Michael Moore. We need to defend Lupe.

  11. Why should lupe go to the factor? why should he entertain that fool? anything on fox news should be taken seriously!

  12. Lupe is my favorite rapper but my god is he a hypocrite. He's always preaching about how everybody needs to "stand up and take action!" and "fight for what you believe in" but honestly.....what has he done? I'll give him Kili, the Haiti song, and the Lupe Fiasco Foundation, but really, lots of other celebrities do charity work like this without wanting the title of "revolutionist". He has done nothing to challenge authority. NOTHING. He called Obama a terrorist and doesn't have the balls to back up this claim on a television network that reaches 100 million households a day, most of which whom probably didn't buy his album and haven't heard his ideas. He has the opportunity to be the voice that he wants to be but is too scared. Lets face it, even though Bill-o is a huge prick he's still a very smart guy. His knowledge on world history is the library of congress compared to Lu's corner street public. Lu knows he doesn't have the knowhow to debate, which is perfectly fine, but he needs to stop speaking his mind (especially on touchy subjects) if he can't back it up.

  13. Jon Stewart is more hip-hop than Lupe Fiasco.

  14. As much as i HATE Fox News, I'm inclined to agree with O'Reilly.


    I also see Lupe making a freestyle called "The Fiasco Factor" in the near future.

    It will be similar to SLR.

    people seem to forget this part about lupe's interview, what he means is that without the u.s government, all the other "terrorists" wont exist, which thus makes the u.s government the biggest terrorist
    makes sense from my point of view..

  20. @freshasfiasco

    when did the minimum wage drop to 31 cents...for real?

    and when did we give 30 bil to israel? especially since Obama wants Israel to go back to the 67 borders..

    AND when did Palestine become innocent? Both of them are completely in the wrong.

    And the worst thing you said was cutting homeland teachers...the federal government has absolutely no control over state actions regarding school systems...so...looks like your wrong again...that's 4 for 4. Granted the Fed. could step in about the schools BUT then the entirety of the right would cry about big government so.....

  21. oh and I hope that this was a misunderstanding and BillO's people were in contact with the wrong people...maybe we'll see this go down after all.

  22. yo friend...

    you're sayin that without the US gov, terrorism wouldn't exist?

    this blog gets funnier every single day. I swear. It's like watching a car wreck in slow motion. It's unbelievable and you want to look away, but you can't. You have to stare in awe.

    ReplyDelete
  23. O MacDonald got em. I was just about to say...that's RIDICULOUS. Why does al Quaeda hit Europe too then? Terrorism existed long before the United States. Sure, 9/11 and some other shit directly dealing with us were pretty damn certainly a result of our foreign policies but...seriously? ALL terrorism is inspired by us? Like honestly? I'm sure we we're responsible for Darfur and Rwanda too then. Matterfact I think we caused the Holocaust.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lol darfur and Rwanda were all caused by foreign influences. We could have helped stop both but didn't because it wasn't economically beneficial. Rwanda was caused because of the Europians and so was darfur.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can these people read? he said they never contacted him jeez meaning he didn't have a chance to decline as he goes on to say he wouldn't miss such an opportunity

    ReplyDelete
  26. The civil war in Darfur is funded by oil. Oil which the 1st world pays for, and America leads the world in oil consumption. We had nearly nothing to do with Rwanda, as far as I can tell but I'm sure if you were able to check where the weapons came from, some of them were American made.

    Also, Lupe isn't saying that America is the only one causing terrorism, he said that we are the biggest terrorist group. His statement of "The root causes of the terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen" is not stating that the US is the only cause of terrorism, he is stating that all that we are doing is a root cause of terrorism.

    Another thing. Freshasfiasco was talking about Haiti when referring the the minimum wage. The US fought to keep Haiti's minimum wage at 31 cents an hour, even though the government had worked to raise it to 61 cents.

    With regards to the Israel thing; all you have to do is "google USA gives 30bil to Isreal" and you can learn plenty, so I am not even going to comment on that piece of ignorance. It is also foolish to say that the fed and the state are completely independent of one another. Yes, teaching is a state thing, but if there was money at the federal level, there would also be money at the state level for teachers. Sending 30bil to Israel when we have issues keeping many federal programs open (the issue with the government almost closing down completely a few months back comes to mind) is wrong.

    Finally, Palestine is not innocent. They are both in the wrong in their fighting, but Israel did not have their country taken away by a bunch of random 1st world countries after WWII. They are fighting to get their country back while Israel is fighting to keep it.

    All in all, I hope that Lupe can get on O'Riley. Mostly so he can redefine what he was saying. Saying that Obama is a terrorist is an ignorant statement in itself, but when viewing Obama as a figurehead of the US, he is a terrorist because of what we are doing in the world. We cause harm everywhere we go, not just direct harm like the war in Iraq, but also indirect harm, such as when our companies keep people in capitalistic slavery and the US does nothing to stop it because the people of America want cheap clothes from walmart.

  27. Lupe didn't tweet that he wasn't contacted until most of these comments were posted. He tweeted it like, an hour ago.

    "Lu knows he doesn't have the knowhow to debate, which is perfectly fine, but he needs to stop speaking his mind (especially on touchy subjects) if he can't back it up."

    this is why america is fucked. most people dont know enough to challenge the system so they dont say anything. we can clearly see that something is wrong but when the average person tries to take a stand they are hit with shitstorm of legal bullshit and precedents, so they just back down. the average person probably couldnt explain why its wrong to pay workers over seas 10 cents/hr to make cheaper jeans but they know its wrong. but the people who think its perfectly fine to outsource jobs to india and lay off thousands of americans could explain how that saves millions of dollars so we just accept that they must be right because they can explain it better.

    maybe lupe wont be able to win a debate against the guy whos been the king of spin since lupe was in middle school but maybe his messege will get through to someone who can. o'reillys fan base already hates rappers so what does lupe really have to be scared of? its not like lupe is an arthur, or an unknown up and coming politician who needs this interview to boost sales. lupe isnt cam'ron lol when o'reilly tries some funny shit like yelling over him or editing footage, lupe will call him on it.

    and it wouldnt even be hard for lupe to defend his statement honestly. and he wouldnt be the first person to go on the o'reilly factor who has labeled obama a terrorist. but he might be the only person to go on thats considers the bush AND obama admin to be terrorist.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lupe is talented in writing music and if you are going to hate on him for the obama thing, you defenitly are one of the most pathetic fans I have ever seen and heard. Keep music and his political views apart.

    He didn't know that "the factor" invited him, and honestly if he declined I would agree, bc Lupe is going to defend himself by exposing secret things of the US, Lupe is probably aware of the things that were never been exposed like most of us know by researching it. Imagine if he screamed on FOX news that 9/11 was a cover up and shit. Also Billy is an arrogant bastard who never lets his guest say the entire sentence, Billy always cuts and interupts the speech that his guest is going to give,.

    Even if I don't agree completely with Lupe calling Obama a terrorist, I kinda understand what he is trying to say.

    Whether you like it or not US is a terrorist, not only US, the world is full of rich ass terrorist.
    I mean see it like this: you have a hater, he is hating on everything that you do, what are you going to do? you are going to hate back, wich makes you automatically a hater too, you like it or not, now there is 2 haters. What does this have in common with the issue here. You have a terrorist what happened here is US became a terrorist after attacking countries, right. WHY? because he did the same he killed bunch of innocent citizens. So what happened here is there double more terrorism in the world. More terror leads to wars and dying for stupid reasons like oil or something called power.

    What did you learn hating is not goint to get you anywhere, neither does becoming like your enemy is going to make you look like a hero or powerful.

  31. What do we know?

    We know that for a fact only Lupe knows what he meant when he made those remarks. Now we, as spectators, can interpret what he said as whatever we so choose. However, I think that interpretation needs to be logical and without the blatant disrespect and badgering.

    ON THAT NOTE, because this man declined the offer to discuss his statements, that instantly implies that he has no backing? He's a "pinhead"? I highly disagree. On the post roughly a week back titled "Lupe Fiasco on calling Obama a Terrorist: 'I've Got Nothing to Clarify'", I think he went into further clarification though he may not have gone as in depth as I'm sure he could've because of possible time constraints. The notion that Lupe (or anyone for that matter)is constantly obligated in this "because you HAVE to" manner to explain himself publicly or in a private setting irks me a bit.

    In light of that, to belittle or speak of him disparagingly because of a decline is petty.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lupe is just a human. You guys are clearly saying that there shouldn't be freedom of speech. Everyone has to right to say what is up in his mind. You even have the right to say that "ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORIST" or "ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS" but it's up to you to agree on this statement or not. Now there are going to be people who support this statement without any proof and there are going to be people who protest to this statement saying it's offensive or defending themselves with proof. There is always going to be hate and racism bc people don't know or understand the way that the people around him live. racism is just ignorance.

    But also these things keep us in balance, imagine the world without hate or racism. We need evil to be good, and we need good to be evil.

    We need an enemy to be a Hero! We need a hero to be an enemy!

    Lupe has the right to speak his mind, he has the right to critise the government, I mean c'mon what do you think that the government is Perfect? The government is build up by criticism. Everything is build by criticism even an musician or an artist.

    What the fuck do you know about foreign policy. I'm sorry, but I didn't realize we had a seasoned scholar of international relations and United States history. I wasn't aware that to have read just about every major biography of every president dating back Teddy Roosevelt and knew about how the office of the Presidency has evolved since that era. Maybe I missed the part where you actually named a specific event or better yet several events that sparked this terrorism.

    Ten years ago, if a rapper like talib kweli or common said something to this effect, you would all busy stringing him up to the closest proverbial tree that you could find on the Internet. But since Lord Fiasco decreed in such specificity that Obama is the biggest terrorist in the U.S. and is also responsible for causing ALL other forms of terrorism, and therefore, is the most influential terrorist in this existence, you all are ready to vote anti-Obama come 2012. Doing so would utterly ruin the chances for this country to get out of debt or at least move toward reducing the national debt.

    But anarchists do not comprehend the consequences of their own dogma. This is all, therefore, irrelevant.

    The ignorant will push the masses into voting against their own interests due to emotional weakness and irrational thinking.

  41. Whether or not he was actually invited is irrelevant. He was asked by multiple networks to elaborate and he denied. Let's face it; lupe is an attention whore. Also for you fools who think Israel is the demon in the middle east conflict; before 1967 there was no Palestine. In that "war" there is no right or wrong, but Israel is Americas ally. There's no scandal by one country aiding an ally. Lupe has got his fans brainwashed.

  42. Bush went to war under a lie he sold to American people (WMD's). Now were fighting in Libya over their in house issues(or their oil). We are still in Iraq over Bush's lie, and we still haven't paid for that war. The wars alone accounts for the lion share of the deficit. And you mean to tell me if there were cops from another country to run your town and occasionally kill some of your peers, you wouldn't want to retaliate. That's all he's saying. Had he been talking about Bush, people would be applauding him unequivocally.
    As far as oreilly goes,all you have to do is be more obnoxious than him and back up your points with facts. John Stewart isn't a genius, he has a research team (every talk show does) that presented him with facts, he studied them, and used them on o'reilly. Cam'ron and Dame Dash owned him for god sakes! lmao

  43. All you people need to stop and think. Just because people agree with Lu' doesn't mean they are anarchist or conspiracy theorist. And for those who disagree with Lupe, think about what he said. You don't have to agree but you have to admit that he made a very good point. We are in a "War on Terror" Think about that for a sec. War causes terror. If you hit somebody what is the most common response. They are going to hit back. And when they hit back we call them terrorist. But I bet that they are over there calling us terrorist. I all goes back to who hit first. I think that US hit first. Can I prove it? No, but can you disprove it? I don't think so. So stop acting like you know everything and listen for once in you life.

    "All you people need to stop and think. Just because people agree with Lu' doesn't mean they are anarchist or conspiracy theorist."

    Because anarchists believe in such radical ideals and tend to incorporate said ideals in nearly all aspects of life, it would be difficult to separate the two in a situation like this. The comments he made were based on those ideals. Saying that the leader of the one of the largest countries in the world, the country that you are from, is a terrorist, makes you an anarchist. There is absolutely ZERO proof of any kind to even suggest that President Obama, or any of the Presidents for that matter, has acted on motives of terrorism. The war in Iraq was not the result of President Bush wanting to scare Saddam or any of the people in the Middle East. He acted on information that turned out to be disproved. Speculating further is useless. One thing is for certain, however. President Obama has actively pursued the initial goals of the post-9/11 wars.

    Sneaking into a compound in a sovereign state to assassinate the most wanted criminal mastermind in the world was a known possibility for over ten years. IF Pakistan was aware of his presence, rest assured that they were aware of the consequences. Quite honestly, I think that Pakistan needs to be held responsible for hindering American missions in the region. Generally, it would be political suicide to engage another country militarily during election season. Obama, however, doesn't always do things that are politically good for his career versus what needs to be done. That said, I am eager to see what he decides to do.

    First of all, you openly admitted that you don't know who hit who first in this back and forth between the west and the middle east. The short version is that the region has been under constant strain for a VERY LONG TIME. Each country has reasons for hating the next due to land wars, religious differences, political alliances, natural resource competition, and trading power in the global economic marketplace.

    Second, you openly admitted that you cannot prove what you are claiming to be true. Your reasoning said that since I cannot DISPROVE what you claim to be true, that I have to stop being skeptical and "listen" to you.

    Okay, I'm listening... for facts and proof. Still none? How long do I need to continue this listening until you realize that you are building your argument with popsicle sticks?

    DJ2KO: Ultimately, I'm happy because I know that imbeciles like you are limited to blogs like this in just how far you can go with asinine arguments like the one you tried to make. No, I am not limited in the same capacity because I know how to properly formulate and educated, logical opinion based on fact, not faith.

    It is not at all difficult to separate the two. In order to be conspiricy theorist there must first be a conspircy, correct? Now I do not recall hearing a conspircy in the statement made by Lupe. If you find one please fell free to quote it as you so often like to do.

    An anarchist is one one who practices anarchism. Now lets see some definitions of the anarchism

    1.The theory or doctrine that all forms of government are oppressive and undesirable and should be abolished.

    2. Active resistance and terrorism against the state, as used by some anarchists.

    3. Rejection of all forms of coercive control and authority.

    I will even give you the sight
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/anarchism

    Now did the statment made by Lupe agree with any of the given definitions? Did he give the impression that "all forms of government are oppressive and undesirable and should be abolished."? Did he indicate that he would be part of "Active resistance and terrorism against the state," ? Did he say that he rejects all forms of government. I don't think he did.

    And you talk that you want proof of this and that, but you have yet to give any yourself. What information did Bush learn that made him declare war?

    And why would they be held reeponsible for something they have no part in. I have heard of the War in Iraq, the War on Terror, and even the War on Drugs , but I have not heard the War in Pakistan. If your neighbors dog died in your front yard should you be held responsible? You didn't kill the dog but it was on your propety so it is your fault? That makes total sense.

    Einstien said:
    "The short version is that the region has been under constant strain for a VERY LONG TIME. Each country has reasons for hating the next due to land wars, religious differences, political alliances, natural resource competition, and trading power in the global economic marketplace"

    Listen some of your reasons of hate. Land wars? Hey we are running out of land over here some we are going to go take some of yours. Religious differences?I don't belive what you belive so Im a go bomb you. Natural resources? We are runnning ou of timber so we are going to go steal some yours. Trade power? You to powerful so we have to attack you? Those sound like some pretty terrorist reasons to go to war.

    And you will get your facts as soon as I get mine.

    Einstien: Ultimately, Im happy because I know that big-headed people like you like to think that they are smarter than everyone. No, my mind is not as closed as your's because I know how to listen and respect my opponent, and think for myself insteasd of belive everyting that I am told.
