Human Genius Sean Hannity Thinks We Should Also Ban All Rap Music Along With The Confederate Flag
“Our nation turns it’s lonely eyes to you.” Those are lyrics from Mrs. Robinson by Simon & Garfunkel, and I’m 100% sure that that line is not talking about the human genius known as Sean Hannity. Because everyone’s opinion matters, Hannity went on his radio show to talk about the Confederate flag controversy (not a controversy) and thought that human beings with the ability to hear things would actually care about what he had to say. Well as usual, he was wrong, but he did impart some grown up wisdom on us: if we’re going to ban the Confederate flag, why not ban rap music too? Well for one, we’re not going to do that because it makes no god damn sense. At it’s best, the Confederate flag signifies the Civil War, a time in our country where we fought and killed EACH OTHER. At worst, the flag signifies a visceral hate and disgust for human beings because of the color of their skin. Hannity’s main problem with rap music is it’s language, which is a fine point, but in the year 2015 there is thing called the clean version of rap CD’s, where you can’t hear any of the swears. Also, the internet. I know Hannity is a bit older but if he’s still going to Wal-mart to buy CD’s then we have a bigger problem. Comparing the flag and rap music is really asinine, but it’s what people like Sean Hannity do. It’s three and half minutes of bullshit, but sometimes it’s nice to know that you’re smarter than a man with his own radio and TV show.
Trailer Alert: ‘Straight Outta Compton’
If you’re a fan of music, and rap music more specifically, then this movie is for you. ‘Straight Outta Compton’ chronicles the formation and meteoric rise of the bad boys of rap music, the N.W.A. Not be confused with the National Wrestling Alliance, the N.W.A. were one of the more popular and legitimate rap groups of the mid 80s and very early 90s. Their success as a group catapulted the careers of pop culture legends Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, and like any rap group of that era, they had their infamous run-ins with the law. The movie seems determined to get the facts right, so this should be an entertaining film.
