USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “Snoop Dogg mocks Trump assassination … again,” TMZ reported Monday. “Snoop Dogg first took a fake gun to a caricature of Donald Trump's head and now the rapper's come for the body … as in body bag.”
The presumed cover of the rapper’s new “Make America Crip Again” album, features a flag-draped corpse with a “Trump” toe tag. It’s a parody of sorts, of Ice Cube’s 1991 “Death Certificate” album cover, where the tag reads “Uncle Sam.”
It’s always nice to see hate-filled grievances directed at the society that enabled people who are essentially lottery winners to become multi-millionaire celebrities just so we can see how badly they’ve been held down and oppressed. But at least the original cover is more honest at identifying the accused source of those grievances. And in Snoop’s case, it’s impossible to separate his sentiments toward Donald Trump from how he feels about supporters of Trump’s political agenda.
It’s also interesting that his alternative to the type of society he envisions is one where ultraviolent criminal street gangs dominate. Especially since Snoop has made great hay about being an advocate of “common sense gun safety laws,” going so far as to “lead” an effort to advise investors to steer clear of gun stocks (and not very sage advice at that).
And then there’s Snoop’s problematic (and supposedly in the past) personal conduct:
“Since achieving fame, the popular gangster rap artist has had a number of brushes with the law. In 1990, he was convicted of cocaine possession. Three years later, he pled guilty for gun possession. Snoop was also tried and acquitted of murder charges in 1996. The case involved the killing of an alleged gang member who was shot by someone in the vehicle Snoop was riding in. In 2005, Snoop was sued for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at the taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2003. Snoop made legal news again in 2006. He and his posse were taken in custody at a London airport in April after the group got into a fight at the terminal. Later that year, he was arrested at the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California, after officers found marijuana and a gun in Snoop’s vehicle. In 2007, the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship, citing his prior criminal convictions, banned him from entering the country and appearing at the MTV Australia Video Music Awards.”
Still, being a total gun hypocrite isn’t enough to get someone blacklisted from the “entertainment” field these days, as that appellation could pretty much apply to most, particularly the more influential celebrity “anti-gunners” who employ armed bodyguards. But there is one accusation that is toxic right now and has the elites running for the hills and praying they’re not the next one “outed”: Sexual abuse.
It’s time to turn up the volume and blast out how the “progressive”-minded should be outraged over Snoop’s role in his “Girls Gone Wild: Doggy Style” video, when he was doing the important work of luring underage girls with drugs (settled out of court for undisclosed terms) to behave like drunk/stoned exhibitionist sluts for GGW founder Joe Francis, himself convicted of falsely imprisoning and assaulting women, “grabbing one … by the hair and throat and slamm[ing] her head into the floor.”
It’s past time to put a toe tag on this miscreant’s “career.”
