[photogallerylink id=49439 align=left]Controversial rapper [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lupe Fiasco[/lastfm] stirred things up once again this week with his appearance on What’s Trending, where he referred to President Obama as “the biggest terrorist” when he was featured as the show’s digital influencer. The song Words I Never Said, from his latest CD, gives a pretty strong suggestion as to his political feelings, but he went even further with those ideas on the show.
He told What’s Trending host Shira Lazar:
To me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists 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.
He also stated that when it comes time for voting in the 2012 election, he won’t be there:
I don’t get involved in politics. It’s meaningless. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, ‘Yeah, I stand for this person,’ then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that’s just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren’t going to do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.
