Ellison Praises Eminem’s Rap Against
Trump: ‘We Need Him’ to Be the
‘Kaepernick of the Rap World’

Washington Free Beacon, by Cameron Cawthorne

Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) told TMZ on Wednesday that he believes Eminem´s rap against President Donald Trump makes an "important cultural contribution" and his work will help inspire more citizens to vote. The Detroit rapper slammed Trump in a freestyle rap video titled, "The Storm," that was shown at the BET Hip Hop Awards show on Tuesday. His rap accused Trump of racism, hypocrisy, and disrespect of military veterans. (Snip) "Eminem and many artists make an important cultural contribution, and we need to imbed within our culture that voting is an obligation, is a responsibility, and that if you

Comments:
Sure, I´ve always thought that Eminem has made important cultural contributions. NOT!! If Ellison and his ilk had any brains or morality they would be utterly ashamed of themselves for supporting such vulgarity that has destroyed our culture. It is disgusting and disturbing how many people there are like Ellison in this country who just don´t care and are so delusional that they believe their own destructive, vile rhetoric.

I seriously doubt that Eminem will change any votes. PDT would never be an option for anyone who bothers to listen to Marshall Mathers. It´s actually laughable.

When I am looking for inspiration I certainly do not look to eminem or ellison. "Eminem and many artists make an important cultural contribution." Seriously? This is exactly why our country is so screwed up at the moment.

Eminem makes an even more important cultural contribution when he goes out in the woods and squats and leaves it.

Ellison should move to some garden spot in Africa, where they think like he does. Zimbabwe, maybe? Equatorial Guinea? Doubtful, though, that he could point out either one on a globe.

So many mixed messages. How DOES one stay on the right side of the perpetually offended?

So, a Black Muslim guy is praising a mediocre, WHITE rapper who bashes women and Gays (cultural appropriation anyone?) encouraging him to be like a mediocre Black, Football player, (concussion´s, violence, masculine aggression anyone?)who works for a huge corporate entity?

And all the Lib men and women are on board because they hate Trump.

But does Eminem want to be the Kaepernick of the rap world?

I shouldn´t think so -- hasn´t worked out all that well for Kaepernick.

But then again, Eminem´s audience is more parochial and they´re probably eating it up.

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again. Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton. Here´s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out: If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or

Thanks to a two-decade surge in immigration, a greater share of the U.S. population is foreign-born than at any time in the past century, according to a new report. Last year, 13.5 percent — about one in eight– of U.S. residents were immigrants, the highest percentage in 106 years. In absolute terms, the U.S. was home to about 44 million immigrants, the most in the country’s history. A huge slice of the immigrant population has arrived over the last 16 years, according to a report from Steve Camarota and Karen Zeigler of the Center for Immigration Studies.

The FBI released emails Monday confirming that former FBI Director James Comey drafted statements regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation months before the probe was closed. The bureau released a file entitled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation,” to its Freedom of Information Act website.

Liberals in shock over the the 2016 election were prescribed a heavy dose of reality. "Get out of your bubble," the doctors note illegibly read. It was a hard truth for the American left. They found out the U.S. was not as progressive as originally thought. Their steady diet of MSNBC and left-wing op-eds only reinforced biases and preconceived beliefs. The country´s actual, collective tilt wholly evaded them. One recommended solution: Search out opposing points of view. Turn on Fox News every once in a while; follow more conservative voices on Twitter. This would be an honorable endeavor for liberals,

Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
