White House Invite From Michelle Obama To Rapper Who Urges Police and Presidents Be Killed

First Lady Michelle Obama has scheduled a poetry evening for Wednesday, and she’s invited several poets, including a successful Chicago poet and rapper, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., AKA “Common.” However, Lynn is quite controversial, in part because his poetry includes threats to shoot police and at least one passage calling for the “burn[ing]” of then-President George W. Bush.

Back in 2003, First Lady Laura Bush held a poetry evening, and she invited several poets to reprise the work of Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes and Walt Whitman. Although none of those poets had urged violence against a president, Bush canceled the event after left-of-center poets protested and threatened to disrupt the event.

Yes your worst fears have been realized.

Not only have we an incompetent no-nothing, do-nothing, amateur as the first affirmative action  president, but his wife brings even less to the table than he. From years of getting away with pretty much anything they wanted to get away with, it might be time to reign in certain groups who've left accountability, common sense, and  decorum back in the hood from whence they crawled.

Any wonder the Brits wouldn't invite these animals to the royal wedding?

I don't think you are serving your self well by decrying the inclusion of a second string "artist" like Common as our worst fears being realized.
