SO WHAT NEW EVIL THING HAS OBAMA DONE, ACCORDING TO THE RIGHT?
Well, according to Joseph Curl of The Washington Times, the president hasn't personally offered a eulogy for Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, which means Obama is racist against himself -- or something like that:
... Adam Nathaniel Yauch died Friday. If you’re age 16-66 -- maybe 106 -- you know him as MCA, one-third of the Beastie Boys. He was 47. Way too young. But gone.
Now, half-white Barack Obama (exactly my age) didn't say a word, even though he was talking to college kids that day, but make no mistake, MCA was no JayZ or Kanye West. This guy was the real deal, groundbreaker, up from his bootstraps, Brooklyn boy made good. Funny the "coolest president ever" doesn't say a word about the passing of MCA. Weird and kinda sad, actually.
"Yauch was born an only child in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Frances, a social worker, and Noel Yauch, a painter and architect," Wikipedia says. "His father was Catholic and his mother was Jewish." Kinda like Barack, all over the place, half this, half that, and a tough life ahead from the outset. But nothing from the first half-white, half-black president (MSM has made him black -- he's not; he's half-and-half. No, Trayvon Martin wouldn't have looked like his son.) ...
So we're now getting lectures not only on rap but on genetics from this guy (who sure looks as if he knows precisely how African genes express themselves in the skin color of offspring, doesn't he)?
Um, wouldn't we be having a huge, ridiculous discussion about how Obama was trivializing and demeaning the presidency if he had said something about Yauch? Wouldn't we be hearing about the sexism of the early Beasties lyrics, the reported link between the notorious Glen Ridge rape case and the Beasties' "Paul Revere," not to mention the inflatable penis used in their early live shows and the fact that a working title for the first album was Don't Be a Faggot (never mind the fact that the Beasties repudiated much of this youthful obnoxiousness as they got older)? Did Obama need that grief? Even if the Beasties did back him in '08?
Jim Messina of the Obama campaign was among the political figures who tweeted tributes to Yauch. I think we can give the boss a pass on this one.
