When you consider the way in which threats — nay, negative or mildly critical language — towards blacks are routinely labeled barely less evil than murder, it is not surprising that a black millionaire could publicly carry out a mock assassination of the president of the United States. But unsurprising doesn’t equal acceptable.
The 1990’s-era rapper Snoop Doggy Dogg, who has literally shot people and been in a gang (some law enforcement officials say he still is) and made millions glorifying drugs, illegal violence, and abuse of women (surprise, surprise, he has made his own “adult film” prostitution videos) appeared in a recent music video to kill a Donald Trump clown caricature at point-blank range. The video showed the gang member pulling the trigger of a long-barreled pistol, which shot a “Boom” flag towards the stand-in for Trump, accompanied by the sound of a real gunshot.
Does anybody doubt that a country music video with a similar scene of former President Barack Obama’s assassination would have landed its creators in jail for a long, long time? The First Amendment protects art, protests, and music critical of our nation’s leaders, but it does not protect threats or simulated acts of murder, rape, torture, and assassination of those leaders.
This isn’t the first time that anti-American miscreants living within our borders have spewed violent threats at a sitting, non-progressive president. The George W. Bush era was full of such insanity, and progressives still would delight to dig up Ronald Reagan’s body if only to hang and desecrate it.
President Trump isn’t a pushover like the rest of his Republican cohorts, though. Whereas “Little Marco” Rubio barely raised his voice above a whisper to question the video assassination, Trump used his Twitter platform to mock the felonious rapper and expose the blatant hypocrisy of a media cabal that fawns over and justifies violent blacks but savagely attacks whites speaking reasonably against Marxism.
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!

Hopefully the helicopter rides won’t be long in coming.
