Lupe Fiasco Calls President Obama ‘The Biggest Terrorist’, Says Voting Is ‘Meaningless’

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 06/08/11

Lupe FiascoLupe Fiasco has never been one to hold his tongue, no matter how controversial his words are, especially when its involving politics.

His latest comments may surprise many. In a recent interview with CBS News, the Chicago rapper lashes out at President Obama, even going as far as to call him the "biggest terrorist."

"In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America," Lupe tells CBS News' "What's Trending." "For me, I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism.

"The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you, as a government, allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's really just some oil, which we can really get on our own."

He believes Obama isn't the best choice of leadership for the U.S. so much so that he admits -- on the song, ""Words I Never Said", from his latest album, Lasers -- that he didn't vote for him during the 2008 presidential election ... and doesn't plan to do so in the upcoming 2012 election either.

However, Lupe doesn't believe voting is actually pretty meaningless. He doesn't even take part.

"I don't vote. No I don't vote. I don't get involved in politics. It's meaningless. To be honest," said Lupe. "If I'm going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, 'yeah I stand for this person,' then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that's just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren't going to do that because I don't want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere."

The reporter then asked him what would happen if no one voted at all, to which he replied, "Who knows. Let's try it out and see what happens."

  • AMERICA

    I hate you racist scum bags... GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY!

    @ Fucklupe no one dies for any country. the country is yours. If your family died fighting a rich mans war then it was their mistake. War is the result of propaganda. Besides the vey land america claims to own was stolen from the Native indians who suffered grotesquely for white man greed. obama is no different.

    lupe, stop bringing your lyrics into the political stage of reality. your poetry is for the hip-hop songs you create, not for the public philosophical discourse in which you are attempting to enter. bizarre.

    Keil, you don't know what it is to be an American citizen. Back in the day people fought for this country with pride. In Switzerland, you have to serve in the army if you are to live in the country. Same with many other countries. My family that died was keeping people that wanted to come to our land and do harm to our people from actually doing it. You are a ignorant bastard. You're and uneducated, spoiled, egotistical asshole with a blurred vision of what it takes to have the freedoms we have as Americans. If people like you with your "anti American military" opinions are to take over our country and make the decisions for us... we will all lose our freedoms and maybe our lives in the future. Get a book on America and see all the people that gave their lives for this country. I am sure there are millions of people out there that feel the same way about you and your opinions... We want to beat your ass and ship you to the dumps! Go get a passport and MOVE OUT OF THIS COUNTRY YOU UNGRATEFUL ASSHOLE!!! TAKE LUPE AND ALL THE ANTI AMERICAN WITH YOU.

  • Luvsdilse

    Obama is an asshole...he campaigned for the oppressed and than completely forgot about them. Bastard.

  • Tha Real

    It' so funny how people can jump on Lupe, and say how much of and Idiot and a Nigga he is for speaking his mind. Maybe if more people stood up and said how they felt instead of posting a mess of Dumb Ass Shit on these sites we could see a real change in America.  I felt like when I voted for Obama he was really gon make a Big difference and Change, then reality set in and I realized he's just another man doin his job. Only thing is, he's a Black Man. I'm a Black Man myself so Race does'nt have a thing to do with it. In a sense Lupe is right. Think about it. The whole Government and United States of AmeriKKKa are Terrorist! We all know how fucked up AmeriKKKa is, then people get mad when somebody speaks out about it. I'm just say'n!

    @ fucklupe I dont care about lupe i cant stand pop rap. I am A maori/european from New Zealand with white skin. MY people fought for thier land when the white man came to take it. They used hand crafted weapons while the white men used guns. I am not racist and I believe that all men have a heart. So your hate filled comments are not warrented and your pro-american/poor-us-syndrome is wearing thin. blacks were not the only slaves as jews were not the only ones killed by hitler and obama is not the only president who Lies to his people. peace out.
