Several journalists who attended an inaugural party last night to celebrate President Obama's second term reported that rapper Lupe Fiasco was kicked off stage for playing an "anti-war song for 30 min" and going on an "anti-Obama diatribe mid set."

Fiasco, a Chicago native, has been very critical of Obama in the past and has even gone as far as calling him 'the biggest terrorist':
My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.
So it's a be strange that Fiasco was the headliner for the event called the StartUp RockOn concert at The Hamilton in Washington DC.

Here is a brief video clip of him getting thrown out of the event:

Josh Rogin of Foreign Policy's The Cable tweeted:
'So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn't vote for Obama and eventually was told to move on to the next', (and) 'Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.'
Matt Dornick of CNN tweeted from the event:
Things going terribly wrong at @LupeFiasco performance during #SURO. Kicked off stage, bashing obama" (and) '#SURO slammed by @LupeFiasco's nonstop, anti-obama rap. Corporate sponsors scurrying.'
The anti-war song that Fiasco repeated for over 30 minutes is Words I Never Said. Watch the video below to listen to the full song with lyrics:

He's pissed at Obama for all the wrong reasons, but at least he's pissed. That's a start.

He's lucky he was kicked out and sent to Guantamo. Oh, so sorry, I forgot that following a campaign promise in 2008, Obama has closed Gitmo for good.

Hark, hark, hark!

I have always stood in awe of individuals that dare risk of lfe fame and fortune being destroyed and yet stepped forwstd and stood syrong as yhey talked truth to power.
And now we need tens of millions of encores.
I wonder what his thoughts were before he walked onto the stage and what his thoughts were as he gazed out upon the audience.
Did he question where the wealth came from of those men and women in multi thousand dollar suits and dresse gowns.
He knew his words would not fall on deaf ears, but upon ears that did not want to hear.
Instead of just congratulations for a feat well done
I who am a less brave one would like to extend a hand in friendship to him and say; Thank You.
Thank you for being my and many others voice of reason to insane power even if for a brief 30 minutes of time.
For in that 30 minutes you did more actual fghting fo r Freefom of Speech and Liberty than all the flag waving cold dead finger crowd have done in the last 50 years.
I just hope that I or others can find opportunitys to act as you did

I thought these people would have KNOWN better than to invite Lu to anything that deals with the gov't and the people in it. Another great song of his to check out is Lamborghini Angels. Deep song.
